For guests looking to explore both coast and countryside, this semi-detached house is situated on the edge of the Brecon Beacons and is only a 30-minute drive to the sandy beaches of Swansea Bay. Set on a quiet side road next to the owner’s home, you will find this a great place to base yourselves whilst exploring the Brecon Beacons, whether it be hiking or cycling. There is easy access to Dan yr Ogof caves if you fancy going underground. Open the gate to this property, walk down the steps and wander into the well-equipped kitchen, where the owners leave you a welcome pack which includes fresh eggs from their own chickens.
Just a short walk from the property is the local public house which serves homemade food. There is a great walk through the village via the riverside, take in the sounds of nature and explore the countryside, or simply sit in the south-facing garden with a glass of wine and a barbecue. Once you have watched the sun set, head back indoors and relax on the reclining chairs in front of the cosy wood burner. Beach 15 miles. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

About the local area

The Brecon Beacons National Park covers over 500 square miles, from Llandeilo in the west to Hay on Wye in the east. The National Park contains a wide variety of spectacular scenery, with mountains, waterfalls, lakes and caves all in the area. The Brecon Beacons is also home to many species of bird life and wild plants.

In the Brecon Beacons National Park, you will find small towns, quaint villages and tiny hamlets sprinkled across the area. Ruined Welsh castles, Celtic standing stones and relics dating from the Neolithic and Bronze Age are to be found, some inscribed stones date from the 5th and 6th centuries.

The Brecon Beacons National Park reaches its highest peak at Pen y Fan, over 2900 feet. The 'Beacons' were the sites of ancient signal fires. Here the views are awe inspiring. At the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains (not to be confused with the Black Mountain in the west), form the border between England and Wales, a border country of gentle landscapes, with easy access to the National Park.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is popular all year round with climbers, geologists, bird-watchers and botanists. There are all sorts of activities to choose from in the area, walking is very popular, not surprising with over one thousand miles of footpaths to choose from. There are guided walks, one way walks (catch the Brecon Bus to take you back to your starting point), even walks for those with limited mobility.

Visitors interested in cycling, horse riding, gliding, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and fishing will find they are well catered for too. The Park also hosts events throughout the year and is home to many interesting attractions if your feet get a bit tired!
