Property code: BN196

Arrive at the characterful cottage which sits in 80 acres of land and start your adventure. Mountain bikers will be in their element with an abundance of trails close by.

This charming property, situated just half a mile from the impressive Cynghordy Viaduct, is ideal for families or groups of friends – not forgetting the canine ones, of course! Sleeping five across three cosy bedrooms and with plenty of space for two dogs, it won’t be long before you’re off down one of the many walking trails nearby. Take in the viaduct from a 2-mile circular walk starting at Cynghordy Railway Station (2 miles), or try the longer 7-mile Heart of Wales Line Trail that also starts there.

 

The property, which is ideal for large groups since it can be booked with other properties on-site accommodating up to 29, is spacious and contemporary. The large kitchen is ideal for group meals where everyone joins in, while the comfortable sofas in the lounge area beckon you to sink back and gaze out of the large window across the fields, the pups curled up by your feet. Fire up the BBQ on sunny days as the dogs run around on the lawn, before heading to the shared indoor hot tub for a luxury soak. And when it’s time for bed, the peaceful bedrooms have soft, neutral decor that will help you drift off to sleep and wake up refreshed and ready for the day ahead.

 

Visit the National Trust’s Dolaucothi Gold Mines (16.5 miles), where you can see the remnants of the Romans’ gold-mining methods, but also go on some stunning walks around deeply wooded hillsides overlooking the Cothi Valley. The National Showcaves Centre for Wales (26 miles) is also a must-visit, especially if you have the kids with you, and pups are welcome to join you in all the caves. Take quiet strolls around the ruins of Dinefwr Castle (20 miles) before stopping for a bite at their cafe.

Hobby cottage was immaculately clean on arrival. Perfect for walkers, hikers, drivers and relaxers. The holiday was beautiful. The owners were brilliant. Always had time to chat. I'm disabled, and was made to feel at home, and was put at ease from the get go. We went for a few drives around, but mostly stayed around the property. It was an absoluteRead more pleasure to stay there, and we wouldn't hesitate to book again, or recommend these holiday cottages to anyone. 10/10. Hot tub was so relaxing. Hide

Fantastic cottage, very spacious, perfect for your needs (family of four with dog). Well equipped with even basic cleaning materials, towels and bed linen. Stunning area, great for walking the dog. Loved the hot tub and the view from it. Owners very friendly and accommodating. Definitely on our list to return to.
