Sleeping 4-6, this charming dog friendly holiday cottage is just over 2 miles from the village of Trecastle. The Victorian Sunday school conversion is perfect for couples, families or friends wishing to explore the western end of the Brecon Beacons. Relax in a cosy, yet surprisingly roomy retreat with all mod cons, enjoying original features and the all important log burning stove. The upstairs living accommodation makes the most of the light and uninterrupted views across beautiful countryside. There is dining for 6 in the well equipped kitchen where guests can enjoy a fabulous Spring backdrop of lambs playing in the surrounding fields or varied bird life throughout the year.The bedrooms downstairs have replaced what was originally a stable where visiting clergy would tie up their horses.
The cottage is a great base for a number of activities. The Usk Reservoir, a short drive away, is an excellent fishing centre and offers a circular forestry walk. Visitors will love taking in stunning views and observing wildlife in a natural habitat. It is also home to a Dark Sky Discovery Site, said to be the darkest spot in Europe for star gazing. Guests are welcome to take the telescope from the cottage to see our spectacular night skies. Walks from the door of the cottage are plentiful so there is no need to move the car.
The market town of Brecon is only 12 miles away in one direction and Llandovery 11 miles in the other. Both towns are worth a mooch around and have a range of supermarkets and gift shops to pick up supplies.
