About the home
Blaencwm is a self catering cottage located in an incredibly secluded valley directly under the Black Mountains near the famous booktown Hay-on-Wye.
There is no noise pollution, light pollution and is completely void of any mobile network coverage (although it is possible to use the wi-fi on some phones).
The cottage is detached from any other buildings and has no immediate neighbours. There is a small stream and a very beautiful waterfall directly beside the property.
Two open fires, oil fired Aga, deep down filled duvets, cast iron baths and a shower borrowed from the Savoy Hotel, London.
The approach is suitably exciting: a narrow track winds its way into the little cwm from the Mountain Road. Low slung sports cars are not recommended but a previous occupant did drive to and fro every day in his Lotus Elise.
Blaencwm is situated just off the hill or common and therefore an enormous amount of walkable, explorable, just-sit-down-on-able hillside.
N.B. The garage shown in the photographs is for storage only until further notice…….
