Caithness is a beautiful, spacious and comfortable 6 bedroomed holiday home - perfect for large families - situated on the banks of the Monmouthshire Brecon Canal. It is a home from home, run by a small family business.

Built in 1959, it has recently been extended and renovated into a contemporary holiday home which sleeps up to 10. It boasts beautiful views and is the perfect destination to enjoy a relaxing escape to the welsh countryside.

GROUND FLOOR

During your stay, you will have access to the whole house including the parking area to the front and the garden to the rear.

The ground floor comprises a cosy lounge with comfy 'slouchy' sofas, a log fire for those cold winter nights and a large flat screen smart TV with Netflix and TV catch up services.

There is a spacious kitchen diner with a double oven, induction hob, a dishwasher and fridge freezer.

The utility room houses a washing machine and tumble dryer along with an iron and ironing board, should you need them.

There is also a quiet study room with a desk and swivel chair, several armchairs and a range of books and board games for the whole family.

Finally, there is a cinema/games room - equipped with a 3-in-1 revolving games table including pool/air hockey/table tennis and a cinema projector which can be used to watch DVDs, Netflix or catch up TV. It can also be linked up to laptops/XBOX/PlayStation via the HDMI cable.

*Our log fire is available to use from the start of October to the end of March.

OUTSIDE

Throughout the summer months, there is a gas BBQ and rattan furniture available to use out on the balcony, to allow you to relax and dine outside, while enjoying the view. Please note: From October - April these will be covered/stored away.

At Caithness Holiday Home we have 1 three-person canoe, 2 kayaks and a rowing boat available for guests to use on the canal. Life jackets of a variety of sizes are provided. It is possible to hire a variety of larger boats/barges for the day from the nearby Goytre Warf.

We have 5 mountain bikes available for you to use should you wish to explore the cycle path along the banks of the canal. This path is accessible for over 30 miles towards Brecon for cyclists, walkers and boats alike.

Please note: From time to time some of our outdoor equipment may be unavailable (including the boats, bikes and fishing gear) if we need to carry out necessary repairs. We reserve the right to do this at any time without prior notice. We will always do our best to communicate this to our guests in the event that any equipment should be missing during their stay.
