Neuadd Cottage is a well kept and homely cottage is right in the centre of the tiny hamlet of Cily-y-cwm near Llandovery on the Western Edge of The Brecon Beacons National Park.. It is always a pleasure to visit with a warm welcome from the owners and also from the neighbours in the Neuadd Fawr Arms - the local pub with a menu to match any Gastro Pub - we had Rabbit and Pheasant stewed with vegetables and barley served with crusty bread followed by a great pear and apple flan - perfect after perhaps a drive down on a Friday night. Bring your mountain bikes as very close to the Brechfa and Crychan Forest with its many excellent waymarked mountain bike trails through forests and woodlands. Visit Llandeilo and the romantic Carreg Cennen Castle, The National Botanic Gardens of Wales and Aberglasney Gardens all within a very easy drive. Further afield is The West Wales Coast in about an hour.
The cottage having once been an old coach house is mostly on the ground floor with a spacious, light and airy modern kitchen with 3 newly fitted roof-lights, with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge and freezer and a washing machine. The large dining table will easily seat 8 people. There is a long and comfortable sitting room, with the heart of the house being a large wood burning stove with has two big comfy sofas and chairs set around it. The TV has freestat and a DVD.

This is a quiet location
with little traffic passing through the village except a few farm vehicles or visitors' going further up the valley.
Plenty to see and do
Staying at the Neuadd Cottage is a perfect location for those visiting The Gold Mine at Dolaucothi, the superb RSPB Dinas Bird
Reserve, Carreg Cennen Castle, or the Crystal Mountain just up the valley, this is where, in ancient times, gold, silver and lead were once mined, now the hillside often sparkles in the sunshine due to the quartz spoil left from mining activities in the
past. There are many walks straight from the door and the area is famous for the pony trekking and for the many mountain bike trails. This wild and remote area around the superb Rhandirmwyn Valley and Abergwyseyn Valley is stunning with magnificent view. You can drive for ages and not see a soul - the road here also leads you over the mountains to Tregarron and onto the West Wales Coast in about 40 minutes. For afternoon tea is it worth trying The Castle in Llandovery now with new owners.
Llandovery 4 miles. Llandeilo 12 miles. Brecon 24 miles
