A delightful annexe within the owner’s own home, set in a superb high position to take full advantage of the panoramic mountain views, in the hamlet of Cefn Rhigos. Cosy and welcoming, this delightful Cefn Rhigos holiday cottage is ideal for a romantic break for two or a holiday for the smaller family. With its own entrance, guests can step into the open plan living space where relaxing times will be enjoyed and where they can watch the ever changing view. From bright spring mornings to snowy winter days and everything in between, the views are outstanding through the patio doors or from the secluded patio at the side of this charming Cefn Rhigos holiday cottage. The exquisite bedroom with TV gives the option to find your own quiet space and with its en-suite shower room completing the accommodation, this is a wonderful base. Situated within the South Wales Valleys, with over 250 miles of National Cycle Network, outdoor enthusiasts will be delighted with this choice of holiday cottage! It is within 15 minutes of Afan Forest Park, great for both mountain biking and walking and BikePark Wales in Gethin Woods, Merthyr Tydfil. Also, positioned on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to walks and with the local trails, both walkers and cyclists will be catered for. Golfers can enjoy a round just down the road, countryside lovers will embrace the fine scenery, including the nearby waterfalls, and there is even a local aerodrome where glider flights are on offer. Relax in the cottage, take walks and bike rides or maybe drive through the Beacons to Brecon or take the bus to Swansea for a spot of shopping.
