Cathedine Old Coach House
About the home
Cathedine Old Coach House is tucked away down a cobbled path with a private garden for children to play. The house has been been imaginatively and well converted to a spacious detached large self catering holiday cottage, ideal for a family group - sleeping 9 guests in 5 bedrooms. Stay here and after a good walk relax around the central wood burning stove, play some games - a good selection supplied or just read a book and gaze out of the window across the valley. Step out onto the balcony to enjoy the fabulous views over the meadows and the nearby Llangorse Lake and the hills beyond. Cathedine Old Coach House is a good place to stay only a mile from the village of Bwlch with a local shop and a village pub and " The Bwlch With Attitude Walk" or to Llangorse 2 miles again with two pubs and Llangorse Pony Trekking and Activity Centre where there is a really good Climbing Wall. Visit The Venison Centre across the valley and try some of their excellent produce - the deer graze on the hills above the house - so very local produce! Hire Mountain bikes and have them delivered to the door. Brecon 7 miles.
With its beamed top floor and flagstone kitchen floor, Cathedine Coach House has a truly original feel with its impressive top floor sitting room, comfortably furnished with two lovely sofas, some antique pieces and large rugs. The balcony is just the place to sit with a summer drink and a delightful view, whilst the woodburning stove is the best for cosy winter nights in.
