This stone cottage is an idyllic slice of country life, hidden away in remote location out of sight accessed by a farm track. Welcoming owners live a discreet walk away and are on hand if needed, but privacy is assured.

With 580 acres of National Trust Common Land surrounding you, there are many walks on the doorstep.  From the top of The Begwns it's possible to see nearly all of the Brecon Beacons, a truly astounding view.  For the energetic, the Brecon Beacons National Park and River Wye have a number of adventure training providers, from renting a canoe, to high rope courses and gorge walking.  Hay-on-Wye just 5 miles away, is famous for its International Book Festival, with plenty of second hand bookshops, an art house cinema and independent stores, as well as The Globe at Hay. Talgarth is worth discovering, and the Talgarth Mill with its working traditional watermill.

The accommodation offers TWO bedrooms: approached via cottage style steep stairs, 1 double and 1 double (built in and not suitable for people over 6ft tall). Bathroom: with shower over bath and WC, on the ground floor.  Lounge: with woodburner (first basket of logs included), TV and Blu-ray.  Kitchen/diner: with electric oven and hob, fridge, washing machine and large larder.  Outside: raised sunny terrace with seating, BBQ and large enclosed garden.

Amenities: ample parking.  Bed linen, towels, electric and Wi-Fi included.  Regret no smoking.  2 dogs welcome. Additional info: the wood burner heats the whole property, additional electric and oil filled radiators available, should you need them in the cooler months. The cottage is accessed via a bumpy farm track, which makes it unsuitable for low cars and advice should be taken in severe weather. The cottage door is accessed via a sloping grassy garden path set into the slope, so may not be suitable for the elderly or guests with impaired mobility. Please note that whilst children are welcome, care must be taken due to the steep banks around the property. Location: pub 1 mile.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

BY FOOT & PEDAL:  580 acres of National Trust Common Land surround you, so, straight out of the door you will find fabulous walks - dogs will love it!  The Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park are in easy reach, simply drive through Hay on Wye and out the otherside, for more strenuous trails. Cyclists will love it and the Begwns are suitable for children's cycle rides (whereas the Black Mountains are a lot steeper).  Bike hire and delivery is available from Drovers Cycles in Hay on Wye.

 PEDAL TO THE PUB: The Roast Ox Inn is a traditional country pub in nearby Painscastle (apx. 1.5 miles) accessible by bike.  Longer cycle rides, or evening drives will find you in Hay on Wye, with The Blue Boar, or Three Tuns to try. Topping the Sugar & Loaf favourites are The Tram at Eardisley and The Felin Fach Griffin, both with great local reputations.

FOOD & FORAGE: The River Cafe in Glasbury is great for a spot of laid back Italian cuisine by the River Wye, Booths Books in Hay itself has a stirling reputation for lunch and lazy breakfasts. Head towards Abergavenny for Michelin starred Walnut Tree Inn and afternoon tea at The Angel. Talgarth is worth discovering, with a superb local butchers and the Talgarth Mill delighting most.

BROWSE FOR BOOKS: Hay on Wye is a huge draw, with 30+ second hand bookshops, an art house cinema and a healthy scattering of independant stores, as well as The Globe at Hay, with a busy program of events - perfect for spending a lazy day or two.

ACTION & ADVENTURE:  As well as the Brecon Beacons National Park, the River Wye has a scattering of adventure training providers, from renting a canoe for the day, to high rope courses and gorge walking, there is something for most!

 

SLEEPS 2 - 4: Two pretty cottage bedrooms, one with iron bedstead, pillows with views and lovely bedlinen and obligatory Welsh blanket provided! The second bedroom is the cutest of double's, cleverly designed and suitable for two adults

RELAXING:  A proper country sitting room, complete with large wood burning stove, a generous supply of logs (with more wood available to either gather yourselves, or purchase for a modest price), deep leather armchairs and chaise, TV, Blu-Ray player and wi-fi.

COOKING & DINING: Great retro chairs and vintage style kitchen / diner. Wonderfully atmospheric for romantic meals and also fab for French style breakfasts...think delicious crusty bread from Talgarth Mill and decent coffee from the Deli in Hay. Hand-made rustic kitchen, electric hob and oven, washing machine, fridge, toaster, cafetierre, Nespresso, a large larder cupboard with lots of storage.

BATHING:  Downstairs bathroom with roll top bath and low over head shower, basin and loo. We were very impressed by the organic linen towels from Baileys Home and Garden...somewhere else worth a trip to, should you be out exploring near Ross on Wye.

PETS:  Up to two well behaved, friendly dogs are very welcome to come and stay. The garden is fenced and gated. Please be aware there are sheep grazing on the Begwns.

CHILDREN: Children are welcome to stay however please be aware that due to the location, there are steep banks surrounding the property and care must be taken, particularly with young children.

16th CENTURY: The cottage is a 16th Century cottage, set into the bank of a hill in a remote location. Please be aware the stairs are quite steep inside, so may not be suitable for older knees or toddlers.

HEATING : The large wood burning stove heats the whole house, there are additional electric, oil filled radiators available should you need them in the cooler months.

ACCESS: The cottage is accessed via a bumpy farm track, which makes it unsuitable for low level cars, and advice should be taken in severe weather. The cottage door is accessed via a grassy steep garden path set into the slope, so may not be suitable for the elderly or guests with impaired mobility.

GARDEN: The garden is built into a mountain therefore care must be taken.

HOLIDAY PREPARATION: We would advise to contact local amenities directly, such as shops, restaurants, pubs and attractions, to confirm the latest opening times and availability.

We called it the Hobbit House and we loved its quirky nature, but what's most spectacular is its unsurpassed location. Get out and enjoy it.

Wendy, 30th September 2019

Need to be very able bodied to get to the cottage through lots of sheep poo and a walk from the so called handstand where you park (its not!) its a piece of grass with a few stones in to help your car get traction, I understand that the area needs to remain as farm land but theses little things make it better for your holiday. The cottage grass sloRead morepe to the front door was very slippery and dangerous when wet. A little bit of thought and it could be made the perfect holiday cottage. Hide

Beautiful rustic property. Remote location with stunning views. Great spot to explore the Begwns and the Brecon beacons. Equipment is basic but met all our needs. We had a wonderful week here. Thank you.

Stacey, 29th July 2019

The cottage is perfect for couples or families looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of City Life and relax. The views from the cottage itself are breath-taking and the cottage itself is idyllic; both cosy and comfortable with the fire roaring after a day of exploring the nearby Begwns or surrounding villages. If you are looking for a peacRead moreeful retreat this is the perfect cottage and location. Hide
