Property code: BN264

An idyllic cottage for couples seeking a rural bolthole, with walks through the Brecon Beacons from the front door and stunning views across the Menascin Valley.

The perfect bolthole for a romantic retreat and your third-wheeling pup, scamper off for a holiday in the wonderful Welsh countryside. The roaring wood burner, cosy rugs and sofas, and bags of charm will make sure no one has their tail tucked between their legs as you arrive at this humble abode. With your four-legged friend in tow, we know that the outside space is just as important as the inside – if not more so. Sitting on the owner’s 300-acre farm, with the Nant Menasgin river flowing through it, walk straight from your door and kick start the day with a wild swim and a splash-worthy game of fetch.

Step up and into the property which is attached to the owner’s home. Two-legged guests can admire the exposed beams and exposed brickwork which flows throughout the house, whilst those with four legs head straight to sniff out the snooze spots. The lounge is treated to a wood burner which promises to keep the chill at bay and provides a warming welcome after days outdoors. With plenty of space for the all-important treat jar and your provisions, rustle up feasts in the light kitchen before dining at the table or descending a step and taking a plate outside to the patio. The shower room sits on the ground floor, making it easy to wash off any mud picked up during walks. Climb steep stairs to rest your head in the bedroom which boasts fantastic views across the Black Mountains and has a characterful sloping ceiling.

Forget the car and explore nearby, starting with a swim for all in the winding Nant Menasgin river and finishing with a roam of the woodlands where plenty of sticks and scents await. Around 8 miles from home sits Pen-y-Fan, the highest peak in South Wales, where the panoramic views are well worth the climb.
