A detached single storey cottage with open-plan living space that’s perfect for couples wanting to explore the many attractions that are within easy reach within the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Steal away to this romantic South Wales hideaway which is perfect for couples seeking natural beauty and the great outdoors. Situated in leafy, mature gardens in Cwmbach, close to Bannau Brycheiniog, also known as the Brecon Beacons National Park, the one-bedroom, single-storey bolthole has a hot tub to bubble in and picturesque views out over the rolling countryside. From here, visit lakes and waterfalls and hike up hills and mountains. Plan a day trip into vibrant Cardiff, with its shops, restaurants and cultural attractions.

Step inside and head through to the utility area to pull off your walking boots and hang your jackets. Make your way into the main light-filled lounge/kitchen/diner to put your feet up after your exhilarating day out. Find a good film on TV, read a few pages of your holiday novel or make plans for the following day over a cup of tea and a Welsh cake. Stroll through the arch to the kitchen to whip up tasty dishes to enjoy at the table whenever you choose to dine in. Pull a chilled bottle of wine from the fridge to pop open and enjoy with your dinner for two. When night falls, run a bubble bath in the bathroom then indulge in a good night’s sleep in your comfortable king-size bedroom. Make the most of the gorgeous outside space at this cottage. Grill lunch in the sunshine, soak in the hot tub and sit out under the stars.

Venture 5 miles to enter splendid Bannau Brycheiniog, with its fabulous footpaths and trails. See the scenic Sgwd yr Eira waterfall, 12 miles away, and walk along the shores of the Llwyn-on Reservoir, 10 miles away.

It is a lovely cottage ideally situated for a nature break.
