Property code: BN247

A picture book cottage for couples or small families set beside 2,500 acres of forest, perfect for exploring the South Wales countryside and coastline.

This charming two-bedroom cottage sits against a backdrop of the Crynant Forest, offering miles of walking and mountain biking trails, with part of St Illtyds Way running through the forest. The villages of Crynant (2 miles) and Ystradgynlais (2 miles) are within easy reach and have local stores and welcoming pubs. Discover the industrial heritage of the local area at the Cefn Coed Colliery Museum (3 miles), formerly the deepest anthracite coal mine in the world. Get close to the primates at the Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary (7 miles), home to chimpanzees, spider monkeys and baboons among others. See the highest waterfall in South Wales at Henrhyd Falls (6.5 miles) where stunning cascades plunge 90ft through the rocks creating a dramatic sight. The vibrant city of Swansea (17.5 miles) offers designer stores, cosmopolitan restaurants and lively nightlife, while the stunning beaches of the Gower Peninsula (20.5 miles) are within easy reach.

 

Set against a backdrop of towering trees, this brightly painted cottage offers light and airy accommodation, decorated in neutral shades throughout, with bright accents of colour. Pull through the gate and onto the driveway. Entering via the porch where there is room to remove walking boots and outdoor clothing, step through the front door and into the property. Unpack your provisions in the kitchen where you will find plenty of cupboard and worktop space. Fully equipped with an electric cooker and hob, microwave, fridge,  and washer/dryer, you will have everything you need for a home-from-home stay. A door and one step lead from the kitchen to the small sunroom – a lovely spot to sit with a coffee and enjoy the views across the garden. Enjoy your meals in the cosy dining room where the farmhouse-style table comfortably seats all guests. The lounge is filled with natural light from the large windows looking out across the gardens and is a pleasant space to relax after a day of exploration. Snuggle up on the comfortable reclining sofa and enjoy your favourite programme on SkyTV. The generous bathroom is on the ground floor with WC and shower over bath, perfect for a long soak before bedtime. When it’s time to retire, head upstairs to the two pretty bedrooms, both with sloping ceilings and enjoying lovely views. The master bedroom is a light and airy room with 4ft double bed decorated in soothing tones with co-ordinating soft furnishings. There is ample storage for your possessions. The second bedroom is a cosy single.

 

Stepping outside there is a large landscaped garden with expansive lawns and pretty flower beds and shrubbery. Enjoy al fresco dining at the garden table or spread out your blanket for a picnic on the lawn. Light the BBQ for a relaxed evening meal.

A great little cottage, ideal for a couple. We were lucky with the weather and could make the most of the location and sit outside most days. Right on the forest entrance so walks on doorstep, and 30 mins from Brecon Beacons, 45 mins to great beaches.

Ideal place for a quiet holiday. A forest you can walk to straight out of the garden. If you want lots of facilities on your doorstep, forget it, this is not for you! A place to getaway for a quiet time...then yes it is and was for us.

What a gem of a cottage, a special place to visit on the edge of the forest, with no neighbours just what we wanted, as a couple with our two dogs, who loved the chance to roam and explore the garden and woodland on the doorstep. The cottage was cosy, well equipped, clean and super value for money. The owner came to say hi and gave us tips for placRead morees to eat/visit which was so helpful. There is a shooting range nearby which if your dog is nervous is worth noting. But cant fault this wee gem!! Hide

A great place for young energetic people and a big garden for children and dogs to play in. Spotting my first bullfinch on the first day was a thrill as were the swallows lining up on the line. Plenty of hot water and comfortable beds.

A lovely, isolated location but within easy driving distance of some very good pubs serving great food. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped and the owner responded very quickly when the Sky Box lost signal.
