Super cottage, set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons. Surrounded by wonderful mountain views and great walks, that may just take you passed the local pub and back before returning to a roaring fire.
This delightful stone cottage in the heart of the Brecon Beacons is bound to be popular among nature-loving humans and canines. Its location deep within the national park gives easy access to ancient woodland, gushing rivers and pretty peaks that you can explore for hours with your pet. In the evenings, settle into your homely idyll or, if you don’t feel like cooking, tuck into a hearty meal at the local pub (1.5 miles). There’s space for up to five humans and one canine guest, so it’s perfect for a family get-together or a group of friends.
This detached property boasts soul-soothing views of the surrounding hills from its large windows. Inside, beautiful original wooden beams frame the windows, creating a traditional feel. In the lounge/kitchen/diner, which has an open-plan layout, you’ll find a lovely wooden table which is perfect for breakfasts with a view plus leisurely evening meals that go late into the night. After a long day out exploring the Welsh hills, sink into a sofa in the cosy lounge areas while your tired fluff bundle stretches out by the wood burner, preparing to do it all again tomorrow.
You’ll be in a rural spot 1.5 miles from Talybont-on-Usk, the start of several walking and cycling trails. Bella will love leading the way along the River Usk and through the undulating Black Mountains – don’t forget to take her favourite ball. Energetic humans and dogs will perhaps copy to hike up one of the national park’s peaks, such as Pen Y Fan (15 miles, 886m). In the traditional market towns of Crickhowell (10 miles), Brecon (8 miles) and Abergavenny (15 miles), pick up delicious local produce before heading for a quiet coffee in one of the local dog-friendly cafés.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
