Property code: BN170

This pretty cottage is packed with character and surrounded by the rolling hills of the Usk Valley — the perfect rural retreat.

The location of this property is a painter’s dream. It sits on the owner’s land in a secluded spot, with scenic walks heading off straight from your door. Venture into the Brecon Beacons National Park to discover the curling trail of the River Usk, where you can fish for trout and salmon. A 2.5-mile walk will bring you to Brecon Gaer, a Roman fort. For a little Welsh town life, head 5 miles to Brecon, where you can browse local shops in lanes than run alongside the river.


The barn is an attractive stone building, lovingly renovated but retaining bold characterful features inside. Enter through the courtyard and into the property where you’ll find a large, open-plan living space, combining a cosy lounge, pretty country kitchen, and a sociable dining area. Timber beams add rural charm. French doors lead out from this space onto the patio, giving the whole space a bright, fresh feel. Both double bedrooms sit on the ground floor, making this property easily accessible and great for getting up and out early into the countryside – each bedroom has access to a bath or shower room.


The space outside the barn is just as lovely, with a large courtyard and outdoor furniture. Sit in the fresh air with a drink after your active day, or see in the morning surrounded by the owner’s fields and the mountains in the distance.
