A comfortable converted barn in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Pentwyn is peacefully situated in an elevated position overlooking the small canal side village of Pencelli. The cottage is a sympathetically restored barn, preserving the original feature stone walls and beamed ceilings. It offers visitors modern comforts and convenient accommodation. Splendid views can be enjoyed from the cottage door up to the foothills of the Brecon Beacons or across the beautiful Usk Valley and over the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal to the mountains beyond. Set in the privacy of its own grounds, Pentwyn Cottage is less than five minutes walk to Pencelli village, the canal, local buses and village pub with its excellent home-cooked food and real ales.

Our 20 acre small holding is a haven for wildlife and birds. Buzzards are regular visitors and can be seen from the kitchen window feeding in the adjacent field, fox and badger paths crisscross the land. Public footpaths cross the fields adjacent to the cottage and give access to the Brecon Beacons by way of the Usk Valley Walk, or to more leisurely walks along the canal towpath and the Taff Trail.

Garden

Guests can enjoy a private lawned garden to the front of the cottage, which has beautiful views and a children's swing. Sheltered under an oak framed canopy there is a seating area with a wooden table and benches, providing a splendid place to relax and watch the evening sun setting over Brecon town. We are happy to accommodate dogs, but ask owners to consider farm animals in the fields around the property. There is ample level parking adjacent to the cottage making loading and unloading very easy. For cyclists we can provide a bike washing area and secure undercover storage.

"As Good as It Gets"

I had to quote J. L. Brooks for the title because the cottage is one of the best we ever visited. It provides a unique opportunity to experience the countryside with stunning views and many animals for your children to get in touch with nature. The sling, the sheep, the horse and the friendly dog provided the animal experience we were looking for our city child. The house was equipped with toys and board games that made our stay even more pleasant.
The cottage itself is very comfortable and has everything one needs. The stone walls, wooden ceilings and decor are very appealing. The cottage is ideally located for walks in Brecon, and the nearby mountains and canals.
The owners are extremely polite and friendly.
I recommend this place!
