Pandai House (PANDA)
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Pandai House is set in the Old Flannel Mill called Dan-y-Bont and lies on the outskirts of the village of Gilwern in a very dramatic location with woodland views and with the mountain stream flowing down dramatically down through the Gorge. There is a village shop, post office, garage and several pubs providing good food within easy walking distance. Perhaps parents with younger children should note that the river bank is very steep at this point, it is railed off but flows fast over rocks through a narrow gorge. It is very picturesque and beautiful, but could be quite dangerous for adventurous children if unsupervised.
Sleeps 5, 2 bedrooms. A very well equipped and built-in kitchen with gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge and freezer, washing machine.
Comfortable and most attractively furnished sitting room with sofa and chairs, TV and DVD; dining area with dining table and chairs.

"It was absolutely beautiful, and so homely and comfortable. The location was great for the Green Man festival.
The owner seemed very friendly when I spoke to her to confirm key collection. She left lovely welcoming gifts for us (a bottle of wine and pack of chocolate biscuits) which were very much appreciated! When she heard that we were bringing young children with us, she also left out the highchair (plus bib) and notes about things to be careful of with our children (eg watching out for high windows upstairs for their safety). I would really recommend this lovely cottage, and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks" Kim

The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
Brecon is centrally positioned in the National Park and is a very popular base for walkers, mountain bikers and those who just enjoy being within the beautiful surrounding countryside with breathtaking views. The cathedral town boasts two museums - The Welsh Borderer's Museum and the Brecon Cathedral along with a shop and cafe. The bustling town centre is quaint with many individual shops and cafes. There is an annual world renowned Jazz Festival held in the town during August.
Crickhowell is a small, pretty and sheltered Georgian market town set between the lower slopes of Table Mountain and the backdrop of Llangattock Mountain with its great limestone crags. The River Usk, renowned for the good trout and salmon fishing, flows past spanned by an interesting buttressed bridge with twelve arches facing downstream and thirteen arches facing upstream. There are many excellent walks in the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons and horse riding, fishing, and canoeing can all be arranged locally.
Abergavenny is a bustling market town with a large covered outdoor market and a busy cattle market; there are ample local producers, craft and antique markets and every September the famous Abergavenny Food Festival brings together a wealth of local food producers, celebrity chefs and an enthusiastic food loving audience. This area remains a favourite base for walkers, cyclists, para-gliders, fishermen and canal enthusiasts, and there are many outdoor activity providers.
Hay-on-Wye is a popular market town on the River Wye, sitting on the border between England and Wales, at the foot of The Black Mountains. Overlooked by the fascinating 11thc. Castle, the town has a wealth of interesting old buildings and the "largest second-hand bookshop in the world" in the old cinema- one of the 30 major antiquarian bookshops, each with their own speciality. Hay-on-Wye hosts the world famous Literary Festival.
Builth Wells in the Mid Wales countryside is varied with magnificent great reservoirs using the natural shape of the landscape - now established over many years and a natural habitat for all kinds of wildlife and flora. There are great expanses of open countryside where the Red Kite (which can be viewed at close proximity in several Red Kite Centres), buzzard, kestrel and sparrow hawks wheel and hover overhead.
The Upper Swansea Valley is an ideal location for those wishing to explore this area known as 'Waterfall Country',
Monmouth takes its name from the mouth of the Monnow River, which flows into the River Wye just South of the town. Monmouth is a bustling market town with many shops and supermarkets. The pubs and restaurants provide good food. All types of outdoor activities are available, there is excellent fishing on the River Monnow and the River Wye; golf is nearby at the Rolls of Monmouth; Hot Air Ballooning at nearby Raglan and pony trekking in the area; excellent walking in the Wye Valley and the Royal Forest of Dean, exploring the Welsh Borders and Offa's Dyke Path
On the western side of the Brecon Beacons lie the old market towns of Llandeilo and Llandovery. Both are charming market towns with excellent local shops and information centres, guiding people to the numerous local places of interest such as Carreg Cennen Castle.

"Beautiful house in a great area for exploring the Countryside"
We stayed at the house whilst we took part in the Junior Tour of Wales. We usually stay in Travel lodge type hotels but there weren't any in the area. When we reached the hosue we delighted at the location and on entering we were amazed at how beautiful the house was and how clean. We had everything we needed and there was a large car park next to the house where we could clean our bikes and kit after every stage. We ended the week by winning the Tour and the yellow jersey!!. I'm sure our riders felt the benefit of this house and how they could relax in its warm and cosy atmosphere. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone, just not the other teams in the tour! We want to stay here next year!! Only negative was that there was no mobile phone reception and no wifi, was great to get away from constant ringing and texting though!
Many thanks for your wonderful comments. Would you be happy for us to put these on our web site?
