At a glance

  • The perfect getaway for couples and small families alike, escape to this stunningly remote cottage
  • Pull on your walking boots and explore the Begwns, a range of hills on the Radnorshire side of the River Wye
  • The only neighbours are the mountain ponies, sheep and the Red Kite that frequently soar above
Property code: BN372

At the end of the 1 mile-long rutted track through the surrounding hills, discover this traditional stone cottage, where phenomenal views and a gorgeous, welcoming character interior awaits

Discover unexplored countryside from the door, with no set footpaths but many tracks made by local farmers tending to the mountain ponies and sheep. Activities such as hang gliding, rock climbing, abseiling, and gorge-walking can all be arranged locally, with nearby Llangorse Lake being a popular destination. Enjoy paddling at The Warren, the local river beach, or hire a kayak further down the river at Glasbury. For walkers and cyclists head to the Brecon Beacons National Park for plenty of walks and places to explore by bike, whilst the Wye Valley has canoeing, shooting, river and lake fishing. There are a wealth of attractions including the Monmouth and Brecon Canal, South Wales Borderers Museum and Abergavenny Castle and Museum. If you've simply run low on supplies, discover boutique clothes shops, antique dealers, pubs and restaurants and books shops galore at Hay-on-Wye, just 4 miles away.

 

Extremely remote and difficult to access in extreme weather conditions be prepared to walk if necessary (boots needed in muddy weather). Having negotiated the track to this cottage you will not be disappointed. The spectacular views are like being on top of the world, whilst the characterful interiors feel like a trip back in time. With its original bread oven alongside the attractive open fire and the huge oak beams this traditional stone cottage has a cosy, timeless feel. The open-plan downstairs has a lovely stone tile floor and the kitchen has an electric cooker, microwave, fridge and freezer and a large window with far-reaching views. Huge oak posts divide the kitchen from the rest of the living area that contains the sitting and dining section. The living area features an oak over-mantle over a stone fireplace with its original bread oven, whilst oak beams, low ceilings and stone windowsills throughout echo the traditional decor. The dining table seats three, and the comfortable sofa and reclining chairs face the open fire, the perfect place from which to enjoy a film. Climb the relatively steep flight of stairs to the two bedrooms and the bathroom. The master bedroom has a double bed and exposed beams, as does the second single room, whilst the spacious bathroom has a large shower.

 

Visit the pub 1 mile away, and a shop and restaurant 4 miles away.

A fabulous cottage, cosy and comfortable, in a place just out of this world, so gorgeous and peaceful. Although not far from civilisation, it feels like you are a million miles away. Safe and protected away from the crowds alone with nature. Plenty of great walks direct from the front door over the Begwns and the view from the top is just breath taRead moreking. You definitely need a 4x4 or a car with very good ground clearance to negotiate the track across the moor to the cottage. A perfect holiday. Hide

Great cottage and location for a true getaway. Moorland walks direct from the cottage There was some confusion over directions to the cottage and general information. These two areas just need to be updated.

Basic but comfortable accommodation. Superb isolated situation with lovely views. Ideal for those wanting to 'get away from it all and commune with nature'. Within easy reach of Hay on Wye for all shopping.

This is a beautifully sited cottage with unsurpassed views. It is the place to 'get away from it all' like no other we have ever been to and we keep returning.

The perfect place to unwind. The cottage is full of character, it's so far down it's own track you can forget the outside world. There are plenty of walks straight from the door, you do not need to use your vehicle for the duration of your stay. There are so many birds to watch in the garden, we topped up the peanut and seed feeders for the woodpecRead morekers, chaffinches, tits and thrushes. The hare sneaks in and nibbles the lawn. Plenty of outside seating and large windows to watch the wildlife. Hide

Wonderful cottage, wonderful location. The views are magnificent. Walks in every direction straight from the doorstep. Pub just a mile away. 4x4 most definitely needed to get to the house. Comfy bed and furniture and great shower. The kitchen window seat is a real bonus. Lovely, dog friendly garden.
