    “Good little hideaway on the edge of the Brecon Beacons.”

    Follow the driving directions from your booking, don’t rely on your Sat Nav.

    Follow the driving directions from your booking, don’t rely on your Sat Nav. Excellent well maintained hot tub, and initial fuel for the log burner, the owners respected our privacy. The property is a little tired but was clean and well presented, however the oven could do with a good clean. please bring your own toilet rolls.

    - Clare, August 2020

    Thanks for your feedback, we're glad to hear you had a nice time. We do provide a fresh new toilet roll for each break. We are trying to limit the amount of crossover between visits, but we are always on hand if our guests need anything while they are here. We will take a look at the oven and make sure it is clean. Thanks again, Chris & Heidi Property Owner

The property

A spacious, light and airy conversion with a hot tub nestled in an elevated position with views across the treetops to the other side of the former industrial valley, in the village of Cwmbach, South Wales.

A perfect base for couples looking to make the most of their days exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park with its myriad of beauty spots and days out and enjoy the beautiful mountain countryside, yet remaining close for days out in Cardiff or fabulous beaches of South Wales.

Set over the ground floor, there is one large double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.

There is also a well equipped kitchen leading into a spacious sitting room with dining area and warming woodburner, perfect to cosy up in front of, after a day exploring the nearby mountains, waterfalls or beaches.

Outside, you can sit in the patio garden and relax in the hot tub or wander around the grounds shared with the owners and take in the surprising tranquillity of the valley rich in industrial heritage.

The area is the heartland of the Welsh Valleys, peppered with images of the local industrial heritage with swathes of forestry and moorlands as the countryside moves up into the striking Brecon Beacons National Park.

Less than a 15 minute drive will take you into the wild beauty of the National Park, with the village of Penderyn and its Welsh Whisky history.

Further afield, you can experience the fabulous walking routes of Pen-y-fan, the highest peak in South Wales, or perhaps enjoy walking the waterfall trails that take in the Sgwd Yr Eira, giving you the opportunity to walk behind the beautiful waterfall.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as cycling, walking, horse-riding, golf, exploring the fabulous national park or perhaps simply stargazing.

Slightly further afield, you are just over a half hours drive from Wales capital city of Cardiff, perfect for a shopping trip or watch a game of rugby and a little further on is the pretty seaside town of Barry Island, providing traditional seaside fun.
