The Powys/Brecon Beacons region

There are canals, rivers, lakes and mountains all around and yet Cardiff, Wales' capital city, Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, Bristol, Bath and the beautiful Gower coast are only an hour or so away. For families, there's a nearby mountain railway, a boating lake, fabulous climbing centre and outside zip wire course, several horse riding stables, numerous mountain biking routes, golf, tennis, hang gliding/paragliding, fishing, caving and some of the best walking, for all abilities.

The Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal is ¼ mile down the road, with its newly-refurbished paths, narrow boats, kingfishers, bluebells and even a large redwood tree. The River Usk is also within walking distance, flowing through the valley bottom and attracting fishermen, canoeists and walkers alike. The area is also a haven for bird-watchers, with buzzards and red kites regularly flying over the property. There's a 9-hole golf course just down the road and one of the UK's largest cave systems at the nearby Llangattock escarpment. The area is also well known as a 'foodie capital', with many excellent pubs and restaurants and an annual food festival in Abergavenny, 6 miles away.

"Fantastic cottage, gorgeous location"
We had a fantastic time at this cottage, really didn't want the week to end. Location & views are amazing. There's so much to do in the surrounding area that we wished we were staying for longer although it just gives us an excuse to return!
The cottage itself is beautiful & very clean. Everything was provided that we needed.
Cant wait to get back, maybe in the summer next time.
