  • Handsome stone cottage on the edge of Brecon town
  • Ideal for walks through the beautiful Brecon Beacons
  • Picturesque views across water meadows and the River Usk
Property code: BN134

A handsome holiday home, marrying period character with comfort and offering exceptional access to the bustling cathedral town, as well as to the scenic Brecon Beacons.

Take your pick of walks from the front door of this gorgeous stone house, and in the evenings head into Brecon for a drink or a delicious meal. Furnished as a supremely comfortable home from home, including a wood burner in the delightful kitchen/diner, it’s ideal for families looking for outdoor adventures together.

Climb the steps to the entrance of the house and discover its traditionally pretty interior, filled with art, books and lovely furniture. You may hear distant sounds of rugby or cricket – the sports grounds for historic school next door are close by. Hang up your coat and wander through to the delightful lounge where there’s a TV and a DVD player, and a desk in case you need to keep up with admin. It’s the kitchen/diner that may become the hub of your holiday, though – a cosy and relaxing space with a warming wood burner, it has a well-designed cooking area and a window seat with a dining table that you’re bound to want to spend long evenings lingering over. Completing the ground floor is a shower room, while the family bathroom is on the first floor, along with the three beautiful bedrooms: a super-king-size, a twin and a single. The large, lawned garden has pretty planting and is a perfect spot for al fresco relaxation or for the little ones to run around. Take a coffee or a sundowner out here and relish the uninterrupted views of rolling hills.

In Brecon you’ll find an array of independent shops and places to eat as well as a magnificent cathedral. Hire a boat or a canoe and explore the canal, or enjoy an energetic day’s hiking: the popular starting points for the main peaks and routes of the national park are within 6 miles.

What a great location, with great hill and river views, but still really close to the town. The house was wonderful - warm and spacious, and worth staying longer than the weekend we had, to make best use of it. Brecon is a lovely small town.

Enjoyed our family stay in this lovely holiday home. Location is excellent, peaceful with a large garden and yet only a short walk into Brecon town centre. Shops, restaurants, museums etc. It was a great base from which to explore the surrounding Welsh countryside. Loved our stay here.

A spacious, characterful, sympatheticaly renovated property in a fabulous location. Central Brecon, but incredibly quiet. We did have some maintenance and cleanliness issues, and freezer which I had to defrost. These were reported to the caretaker. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the location.

An updated shower in a larger cabinet would be good. Other than that, our only other comment would be that the sash windows are very heavy & difficult to open. As our week in June was one of the hottest in the year, more ventilation in the bedroom would have been appreciated.

This very spacious cottage is more a house than a cottage. Great location with sun in the garden all day. We were lucky that we could have breakfast in the garden each morning. The cottage is close to town but quiet, especially at night. Just some dog walkers along the paths on both sides of the house and the school boys and girls doing their sportRead mores. On walking distance to the town centre with some restaurants. Hide
