  • "Unfortunately we are unable to give feedback as, for very good reason, we had to cancel our stay."

    We lost all of our money even though we had thought that our insurance might cover us but it did not.

  • "The cottage was lovely and cosy but roomy enough for a couple with a dog."

    Well equipped and extras appreciated, e.g. Welsh cakes, tea bags, milk on arrival etc. Well situated for exploring the Brecon Beacons with the added advantage of a canal running through the town for towpath walks. One maintenance issue reported to Lori which was fixed immediately.

  • "We had an amazing time at The Cwtch."

    The kitchen is small and we have everything we need to prepare our lunchs/dinners. The only thing we found difficult, was parking. The parking space provided is really tight (we had a pegout 308) and for us it was really difficult to park (it's in the main road of Gilwern and to park you need to stop the traffic).

    Thank you for your feedback. Parking in the area is always an issue so we had to make the best use of the space that we have. We hope it won't deter you from coming again. Property Owner

    Will definitely stay again. Any amenities that you need are on your doorstep. Suited us perfect for visiting family in Gilwern.

  • "Wonderfully compact and well equipped!"

    The decor is beautiful and cleaning was to a very high standard. The kitchen had everything you could think to need. Lori was on hand if needed and kept us updated. Pubs, shop and chippy on the doorstep (worth noting that the Beaufort opposite does not allow dogs inside). It is also worth noting that the road is quite loud at night if you are a light sleeper. The cottage itself is perfect and a great set up for a couple with or without a dog. Thank you for a wonderful stay, definitely recommend!

    Thank you for your detailed positive review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay Property Owner

    The communication with the manager was great and the whole house was so clean and nicely decorated.

  • "The Cwtch was very well appointed and although small had everything I needed."

    Unlike some holiday lets this place gives you the impression that it is very much cared for. The location was excellent with parking particularly appreciated. The canal was only a few minutes walk away with great scenery and countryside near by. The bus stops were literally seconds from the front door. All in all I would very much recommend “The Cwtch”.

The property

Nestled in the village of Gilwern within the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons National Park), is this wonderful cottage, The Cwtch.

This pet-friendly dwelling has a characterful interior with a quirky fireplace on the landing and painted stone walls, ideal for a couple seeking a romantic getaway with their dog.

On arrival, leave your vehicle in an off-road parking space before entering the sitting room, which features a sofa and a wall-mounted Smart TV to relax.

The kitchen/diner is adjacent and is a compact but efficient space with an electric oven and hob, fridge with an ice box and a breakfast bar to tuck-into snacks and meals.

Savour a glass of wine in the small courtyard to recount the days adventures; afterwards venture to the first floor to freshen up in the contemporary shower room.

There is a bedroom with a king-size bed, a dresser to assist with your night-time routine and bedside tables to keep your favourite book.

From the foot of the door, you will find The Towpath Inn, a village pub with a beer garden, The Corn Exchange to sample delicious wine and a convenience store for all your essentials.

The Cwtch is a superb base for history buffs with Big Pit National Coal Museum, Tretower Court and Castle and Clydach Gorge; all with a fascinating insight into the past.

Also within easy reach is Brecon Beacons National Park; here you can ramble the scenic landscape, hike up hills and stop off at quiet reservoirs for a picnic.

Venture to the market town of Abergavenny, home to the ruins of Abergavenny Museum, beautiful gardens for calming walk and a cluster of pubs for a refreshing pint.

For a lovely dwelling in Mid Wales, whisk your other half to The Cwtch.
