Set in the heart of the National Park within the peaceful hamlet of Tretower, this detached country home has been beautifully finished offering a great base for family and friends to relax.

The peaceful hamlet of Tretower sits at the foot of the Back Mountains just off the Usk Valley, the perfect place for a holiday with friends and family making the most of the outdoors. Try Llangorse Activity Centre (7 miles) with its climbing wall and Cantref Adventure Farm (13 miles), both with pony trekking centres. Hire a kayak and paddle along the Brecon and Monmouth Canal, or walk along the River Wye and the River Usk. The Henry Vaughan Walk along The Brinore Tram Road winds through the scenic and historic Talybont valley, or you can climb a number of footpaths up to the Beacons. Immerse yourselves in Welsh cultural history with a visit to one of the many historic houses, gardens and castles. Crickhowell, Abergavenny, Brecon and Hay-on-Wye are all less than 17 miles away and perfect for a day trip of pubs, restaurants and independent shops.

The cottage is set within mature gardens with views of Tretower Court and Castle, a creation of Sir Roger Vaughan. Step back in time as you step inside the flagstone boot room. To the right there’s a quirky cloak room with Thomas Crapper WC, butler sink and vibrant wallpaper. Relax in the lounge with its 17th-century stone fireplace, leather Chesterfields and velvet recliners surrounded by heirlooms, antiques and oil paintings. Enjoy the heat of the wood burner whilst watching a film on the Smart TV. To the rear of the house, the locally handmade shaker kitchen is well-equipped with a Smeg induction range, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Sage coffee machine and washing machine. Enjoy meals seated at the large oak refectory table with French low lights and Welsh pew. The 17th century spiral stone castle staircase leads you to the dark oak-boarded first floor. Here four bedrooms are all beautifully finished with Art Deco sanitary ware. To the front of the cottage there’s a king-size William Morris bedroom with en-suite shower, a twin bedroom with bunk beds plus a further single bed. To the rear of the cottage there’s a twin bedroom and a double bedroom. There is a family bathroom with a free-standing double-ended zinc and copper bath to enjoy castle views whilst taking a soak, a separate shower and a WC. There’s also a small lounge area to relax in on the first floor. A further upstairs toilet is a quirky hidden gem with green Art Deco suite. The cottage also has a detached fully-contained annex, perfect for two, known as 'The Cwtch' (Welsh for cuddle) offering twin beds that can be made into a king on request at the time of booking, and a wall-mounted TV. A small kitchenette with fridge, kettle, breakfast bar and stools is perfect for a morning coffee with a view to the castle. There is also a shower and Burlington high level WC.

We had an awesome family break in this beautiful cottage. Our party consisted of 6 adults and 4 teenagers, and all were catered for. There is plenty of space in the cottage both inside and out. We were blessed with beautiful weather so spent most of our time in the garden which is lovely. Plenty of garden furniture and the hammock is the best thingRead more ever, could have spent all day in that! Good location not far to travel to surrounding villages, supermarkets and pubs. Would definitely recommend Hide

We stayed at Ty Sinsir for 1 week as two families with 5 children between us. The house was extremely well equipped and the host had thought of everything. Including the little things like dishwasher tablets, washing up gloves. The bed rooms were all very comfortable, with plenty of space for all. The location was completely stunning and so much ouRead moretside space for the children to run around and play The fire pit was really great at night time as well. Strongly recommend. Hide
