Lovely property set within the Black Mountains with plenty of walking from your doorstep and a cosy wood burner waiting for your return

Beautiful semi- detached mountain cottage

Walk for miles from the door, retreat back for cosy nights by the log burning stove, or barbeques under the immense night sky in the depths of the dramatic Brecon Beacons Dark Sky Reserve.

The Black Mountains stretch for miles around you, far reaching views of picturesque pine forests, a mountain river flowing gently past down below and a fabulous walk to the Grwyne Reservoir at the head of the valley, you can't fail to relax and unwind. Aptly named, the cottage is one of a pair of original foresters cottages deep in the Grwyne Valley, just off the famous Beacons Way, with walking and biking right from the door second to none.

In reach of market towns including Crickhowell, with butchers, independant stores and a useful mountaineering shop, Abergavenny, with regular markets, Michelin restaurants and one of the UK's best food festivals each September. A drive over the hill will find you in the pretty hamlet of Llanthony with ancient Priory and pony trekking. Or stride out from the door and take a peek at the historic hillside church of St Issui at Patrishow at the end of the valley, well worth the effort.

Kitchen/diner: well-equipped with Rayburn, electric oven and hob, microwave, coffee machine and washing machine.

Beautiful cottage with views to match. Great location with room for the dogs to play. Good local walks, nearest main supermarket 20 minutes away. Main gate to the cottage is shared with next door, and they access their property around the back of this holiday cottage. There was no phone signal and WiFi was limited. Building work was on going in theRead more barn next to the cottage, so peace and privacy was limited. However, the neighbours are extremely friendly and are lovely people. Hide

A lovely remote cottage with beautiful views down the valley from the good-sized patio area, which catches the sun for most of the day. The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable.

Great holiday again but the builders next door broke the peace of the place and kept leaving the gate open which was a pain because we have a small dog.

Wonderful Away from it all location, great for walks. Best to arrive with provisions as a bit of a drive to any shops but the Welcome pack was delicious. The cottage was spotless and very well equipped. The views are gorgeous.

Reviewed by Kelty, 11th May 2018

It was a lovely cottage, ideal location for a getaway break. However, unfortunately there are builders there during the week working on the neighbours barn, which meant it wasn't as peaceful as it should have been and no privacy in the garden while they were there.

Our first trip away with our dogs and this cottage made things very easy. Seeing them crashed out in front of the log fire with the kids after a busy day was the icing on the cake!

It has been a privilege to stay at this amazing cottage in the most incredible location. The cottage is extremely well equipped and the owners have provided everything needed for a wonderful stay. The views from the patio are stunning with miles of beautiful walks direct from the door. 5* in every respect.

Reviewed by Julie, 29th September 2017

If you want a holiday where there is pure tranquility this is the place! There is very limited WIFI and your mobile phone service is non-existent but we loved this. It's a place where you can really get away from the busyness of life. The cottage is delightful; a real home from home with a cosy log burner for chilly evenings. The scenery around theRead more cottage is stunning. The owners are very helpful if you have any questions or any problems. Hide
