Look out over the Usk Valley and towards the Sugar Loaf Mountain from this pretty stone cottage on a sheep farm in the Brecon Beacons.

Find a warm welcome within this traditional Welsh cottage, which is next door to the owner’s house and is furnished with beautiful antique pieces.

Fire up the wood burner and enjoy its heat while you watch TV, play a board game or choose a book to read on the sofa or armchairs.

We had a wonderful holiday in Wales. The cottage was very comfortable with welcoming touches like home made biscuits in the kitchen and vases of flowers dotted around the cottage. The scenery is spectacular with lots of walks straight from the cottage. The owners, Sue and Mike, were absolutely lovely, incredibly helpful and nothing was too much troRead moreuble. We will certainly be returning soon for our third holiday there. Hide

We are a regular travellers and would rate Sue and Mike's place as one of the nicest, best located, and real value of all the places we have stayed. The place was clean, full of character, had everything we needed to feel at home, and was in close distance to all the sites we wanted to see. The owners were so kind and attentive and made us feel reaRead morelly welcome. We had an amazing time at their beautiful home and would love to visit again in the future. Thank you for everything!
