The Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls are just 11 miles away, and the pretty village of Llangynidr (2.5 miles along the lane) has a couple of good pubs.

A step down takes you into the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner - a lovely space to relax in. At the end of the day you can curl up on the sofa in front of the wood burner, which is set in an impressive stone fireplace, and catch up with a good book or watch a movie on the TV/DVD. There’s also a choice of board games and jigsaws but please ask owner. You can share a favourite meal in the dining area by the window. The kitchen area has two ring hob and microwave with grill, roast and convection functions, slow cooker, an air fryer and fridge. The bathroom is also on the ground floor, complete with a shower over the bath and a WC. Going upstairs, the charming, light and spacious bedroom features a double bed, a single bed ideal for a child, and there is also a travel cot. The cottage offers a choice of artwork and exposed oak ceiling beams.

Stepping outside, you can sit back with a glass of wine in the evening and admire the far-reaching views from the pretty patio area. The cottage is set in a delightful secluded mountainside location which shares a courtyard with the owner’s organic maintained garden, so you can enjoy the peace without being totally isolated.

Great location in a valley some 2 miles from the village of llangynidr. Ideal for peace and quiet or for the more energetic some good walks from the location up the lane and footpaths . There are OS maps available, to plan your trips into the mountains.

We booked very last minute for a long weekend away and we couldn't thank Pip and Gil enough. The cottage was exactly as advertised and they were very helpful and welcoming. It is in a beautiful area and was so peaceful. There were useful guides available in the cottage and all the amenities we needed. Would stay again.
