  • "Mostly met expectations."

    But there is one big inaccuracy in the description of the property. It clearly states "enclosed garden with lawn and dining seating". In fact, the garden is not enclosed - only the front decking is enclosed (and even then not completely). This is quite an important detail for people who have dogs. We chose this house instead of other options, even though it was more expensive, largely because it claimed to have an enclosed garden where we could relax with the dog. Actually the garden just opens directly onto the drive, meaning we had to keep the dog on a lead to stop her going onto the road. Please update the listing as this is an important detail and it's disappointing when descriptions are inaccurate. Please acknowledge receipt of this.

The property

Cwmllynfell 1 mile.

Set in a quiet rural village of Ystradowen is this stunning detached, stone-built cottage, providing a welcoming base for a group of friends or family to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Be charmed as you make your way towards Woodland Cottage and onto a quaint decked entrance where you'll find separate seating areas for you to enjoy your morning coffee and enjoy the stunning views over the countryside.

This real home-away-from-home boasts homely living areas for you to spend evenings inside, rustle up your best home-cooking in the well-equipped kitchen and serve up for a dinner party in the living/dining room.

Here you can gather around the table with a bottle of wine before cosying up on the sofa as you prepare some popcorn and find a film on the Smart TV.

Alternatively, enjoy a spot of alfresco dining in your private garden, savouring a glass of wine on a summer's afternoon as your furry friends run free on the lawn.

Withdraw upstairs to find three inviting bedrooms, comprising two doubles and a twin, all with matching décor, ample storage and served by a sumptuous bathroom with both a bath and an overhead shower.

There is also a separate walk in shower with wc and vanity unit on the ground floor.

Take a short drive over to the tranquil village of Ystradgynlais and visit the local Supermarket to stock up on essentials for your self-catered stay, or sample local delicacies at the family butchers as you pick up fresh meat for lunch, there's also traditional pubs nearby which serve food if you fancy a hearty meal outside of the kitchen.

Delight in a gentle stroll alongside the Afon Twrch before getting ready to explore the surrounding area, following enchanting valleys over to serene countryside of the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Avid cyclists will love the chance to head out on the National Cycle Network Route 43, a 31.6-mile route heading over to Swansea via Swansea Canal towpath and the banks of the River Tawe.

Spend a day exploring the sensational Waterfall Country, the amazing Henrhydd Falls is a must, where scenes from the movie Batman were filmed, plus home to two Sites of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation and the amazing Sgwd-yr-Eira waterfall.

Discover a plethora of outdoor activity throughout the National Park, including scenic walking trails, challenging cycling routes, horse riding, gorge trekking, paragliding, abseiling and kayaking to name a few!

Other local attractions worth a visit include the Showcaves of Wales at Dan-yr-Ogof, the Dark Sky Reserve in Wales, and the industrial heritage of the Big Pit and Blaenavon Iron works.

Venture out to the vibrant Welsh city of Swansea which boasts an exciting choice of amenities, glorious sandy Blue Flag beaches of the Gower , a Victorian Pier and immense culture.

Woodland Cottage is the perfect choice for a relaxing escape to Wales.
