The Powys/Brecon Beacons region

Ystradgynlais is a busy village on the edge of the Brecon National Park with the Beacons and good walking country a short distance away. Visit the Dan y Ogof Caves or Craig Y Nos castle with its lovely grounds or drive in the opposite direction to reach Swansea and the bustling Marina, with Mumbles and the stunning Gower Peninsula a bit further on. A drive across the Black Mountains, park the car and take a walk - sheep may be your only companions or maybe mountain ponies. Visit the majestic Carreg Cennen near Trapp, with its tea room and craft shop, or one of the several waterfall sites. There is always lots going on in The Welfare Hall in Ystradgynlais, the showing of the latest film, ballet or orchestra recitals beamed in from across the world. Of course everyone knows about the Brecon Jazz Festival and the bookshops in Hay on Wye - a nice day out.


Ystradgynlais is in the Swansea Valley and was once a busy mining town.

"Home from home"

We stayed here for the week of our wedding. Our wedding was at Craig Y Nos castle which is only 10 mins drive from the cottage. The close proximity to the castle meant that we were able to take all our wedding outfits up to the castle about half an hour before we could get into our rooms there. It meant a stress- free wedding day. The cottage is located on the edge of the village which has a good pub/inn/ restaurant at the bottom of the road and a selection of shops and banks etc. the cottage itself is very well equipped with everything you would possibly need. it was very clean and modern and felt really homely. I would definitely recommend it.

Thank you for your review, much appreciated. W
