Property code: BN181

Boasting International Dark Sky Reserve status, escape to this charming cottage for around the clock adventures; perfect for a romantic retreat or an escape from the hustle and bustle.

Walk out of your door and onto well-trodden paths along the canal for a gentle stroll towards a handful of tasty eateries. Or jump on your bike and take to The Taff Trail which runs for 55 miles between Cardiff and Brecon. When you run out of steam head back home and fire up the wood burner as you settle down in the lounge area. Two and four-legged guests can sneak out into the enclosed garden for a breath of fresh air or take a moment on the balcony for some peace and quiet.

Walk the pretty garden path and enter this terraced cottage through the kitchen/lounge/diner. Set in an ornamental fireplace the wood burner throws heat into the space so you can curl up on the sofa and switch on the Smart TV in comfort. The well-equipped kitchen is a bright space with natural light flooding in through the patio doors. Perfect for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts you can throw off muddy boots and hang up your coats in the entrance porch; if you get caught in the rain make use of the electric clothes drier, too. Up some steep wooden stairs to the first floor,  you will find the master double bedroom, bathroom with shower over the bath and access to the balcony space, ideal for a morning brew. Head up another flight of stairs to the second floor and the cosy  open plan single bedroom set under the eaves.

Welcomed by a pretty cottage garden path, the charm continues to the rear of the property as you step out into the enclosed garden. Take a seat on the patio furniture in the sheltered area . A BBQ provides a welcome treat in the summer and bikes can be stored in the back garden and is great for those looking to cycle their way around the Brecon Beacons National Park.
