  • Homely period cottage with views of the Black Mountains
  • Set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Within the village of Bwlch, overlooking the Usk Valley
Property code: BN138

A cosy retreat, dating back to the 17th century and situated in a village, with shops and a pub, yet also ideally positioned for walks and mountain hikes in the Brecon Beacons.

Head straight out into the hills of the Brecon Beacons from this inviting holiday home at Bwlch. The two-bedroom period cottage, which sleeps up to three guests, looks out over the beautiful Usk Valley and towards the Black Mountains. Go climbing, caving or horse-riding in the national park. From your front door, walk approximately 5 miles to the largest natural lake in South Wales, at Llangorse. Go fishing, sailing or windsurfing while you are here. Visit the medieval manor house of Tretower Court and Castle and then venture into Crickhowell, 6 miles, from your cottage to browse in the pretty town, see the castle ruins and perhaps enjoy a meal out.

 

Feel immediately at home within this traditional cottage, entered via one step. Relax in the cosy lounge, where an electric wood burner - effect fire has been fitted into a large stone fireplace. Search for your favourite programme on TV or settle down in front of a DVD. Wander through to the kitchen/diner to make yourself a cup of tea or to prepare a delicious dinner. Sit around the table together to enjoy your meal. A family bathroom, complete with bath with shower over, and WC, is on the ground floor too. Both of the bedrooms can be found upstairs, capturing superb views down the Usk Valley and over towards the Sugar Loaf Mountain.

 

Return home on warm days to sit out on the patio to the front of your cottage. Light the BBQ to enjoy dinner out in the fresh air or simply have a sundowner before heading inside. Parking for one car is available.

This cottage was perfect and I will definitely recommend it. The location was ideal with plenty of walks to take my dog on. Either from the doorstep or a short drive away.

Cottage was as described but the village shop is now closed but the Venison Centre does sell fresh meats and sundries. Nearest shops are 15 minutes away in Brecon. The cottage was clean, very well equipped and did the job. The only issue was that it was near the top of a very steep road and parking was not as easy as I would have liked.

Lovely cottage, comfortable beds.There is a pub just a few yards up the road which is dog friendly - never had a meal there as it was booked up. Owners of the cottage left us some milk and tea, coffee for when we arrived. Ideal spot for doing walking. Brecon and Abergavenny are only a short drive away.

Lovely cottage, pub on the corner was lovely and welcome dogs.it is closed on Monday and Tuesday. Lovely circular walk just up the road which takes you up on the beacons. Beautiful views from the top. Brecon is not far and is worth a visit. Facilities at the cottage were excellent and we were glad to see there was a shower screen and not the dreadeRead mored shower curtain, the little welcome pack and flowers were a nice touch. Hide

A lovely cottage in a beautiful area, conveniently close to a local pub and a short drive from plenty of local eateries and attractions. The cottage was very clean, beautifully presented, and comfortable. Plus, the facilities were top-notch. We very much enjoyed our holiday and would gladly stay at The Dragon Cottage again.

Dragons Cottage is set in the beautiful surroundings of the Brecon Beacons. The cottage is well maintained, clean and so cosy.

Cottage is in a good location for exploring the surrounding areas. Pen y fan was lovely, as was Llangorse lake and we also enjoyed the 4 Waterfalls walk and a pleasant walk from Talybont along the canal path. Pub at the top of the road was a bonus!
