This is a charming detached stone cottage, retaining many original, attractive features, situated near Brynamman and the Black Mountain. It is in a no through road in Cwmllynfell between Brynamman and Ystradgynlais on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, some 17 miles north of Swansea. Cwmllynfell has a village shop and pub, the village rugby pitch is opposite and there are tennis courts nearby. The cottage boasts hill views all around, including the Black Mountain, and there is excellent walking from the door.
Rose Cottage has a small fitted kitchen, with dishwasher, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, a dining room with a solid fuel Rayburn, piano and door to garden, and a lovely big lounge with multi-fuel stove in the fireplace, Freesat TV and DVD player. The bathroom is also on the ground floor with a bath, electric shower over, WC and basin. Upstairs is a double bedroom and two single bedrooms. The cottage doesn't have central heating so the multi-fuel stove and the Rayburn are the main sources of heat, though there are electric background heaters in the bedrooms. Hot water is provided by immersion heater. The cottage sits in an attractive natural garden with a lawn, an unfenced pond and garden furniture.
There are many opportunities for enjoying the countryside and outdoor pursuits in this area, on the southern edge of the Brecon Beacons, with Dan-yr-Ogof caves, various National Trust gardens and the National Botanic Gardens. It is about half and hour's drive to the wonderful beaches of the Gower Peninsula.

Just returned from a week's stay in Rose Cottage. Booked for its great location in the Brecon Beacons and hoped it would live up to the pictures. It certainly did! We all loved the rustic feel that the cottage had, exposed walls and beams etc, it really felt like we had stepped back into a more simpler time. Fell in love with the cottage as soon as we arrived and we weren't disappointed upon entering. The fire was roaring in the lovely old fire place and it felt homely straight away. Lovely views from every window and the cottage is equipped with everything you need for the perfect getaway. Friendly neighbours, easy access to local conveniences and lovely large garden...we had a very happy stay here and felt really sad when we had to leave. Thank you for being so accommodating Rose Cottage :) P.S A whole week of sunshine made it the perfect first holiday for our little family.Mr Tickner - 10th October 2016
Charming cottage with a nice garden. Ideally situated to visit the southern part of Wales. Owners are very welcoming and helpful. Building a coal fire takes some getting used to. All in all highly recommendable!Mr Geenen - 4th May 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay; revisiting areas we remember from living in Wales and catching up with family and old friends. Rose Cottage was a comfortable, convenient and welcoming base for us. A lovely cosy, tasteful cottage with a 'home from home' feeling about it. Lack of central heating didn't worry us, but might deter those used to instant heat!Mr Jackson - 6th December 2015
Very pretty with lovely rambling garden full of flowers. Daughter absolutely loved the old world feel.Mrs Mewton - 4th July 2015
Rose Cottage is beautiful, a period rarity amongst the mining villages in the Brecon Beacons. It is equipped and feels like a family home with a beautiful garden in which to enjoy the sunshine.Mr Hillary - 23rd June 2015
Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location. Bed linen and towels being included was a bonus, owner was very welcoming on arrival. Felt like we were staying in a family home. Great base to explore the Brecon Beacons and the Gower.Mrs Hawthorn - 2nd June 2014
Beautiful old-fashioned house with coal-fire stove, very nice and clean, recommendable.Dr Roth - 19th May 2014
We had a great week in the cottage. Would love to come and stay again! Good value for money and a great location.Mrs Lomas - 22nd April 2014
