Property description

Valley Cottage is a self catering cottage located in an incredibly secluded valley directly under the Black Mountains near the famous booktown Hay-on-Wye. There is no noise pollution or light pollution and it is completely void of any mobile network coverage (although it is possible to use the wi-fi on some phones).

The cottage is detached from any other buildings and has no immediate neighbours. There is a small stream and a very beautiful waterfall directly beside the property. Two open fires, oil fired Aga, deep down filled duvets, cast iron baths and a shower borrowed from the Savoy Hotel, London.

The approach is suitably exciting: a narrow track winds its way into the little cave from the Mountain Road. The cottage is situated just off the hill or common and therefore an enormous amount of walkable, explorable, just-sit-down-on-able hillside.

The house sleeps up to 8 in 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and a twin, 2 of the bedrooms each having an extra single bed). In addition there are 2 bathrooms (1 bath and 1 bath with walk-in shower - the enormous head of which was acquired whilst working very hard at the Savoy Hotel, London)!

Facilities include: Kitchen – AGA plus 4 Gas Hob Burner, Larder, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Drawing Room, Jacques Pool Table, Garden with terrace, BBQ, Sky TV, Wi-Fi, Linen included, Washing machine, Dishwasher, Cot available.

Please note that the 2nd building shown in the photographs is a garage for storage only.

Location

The cottage is located in an incredibly secluded valley directly under the Black Mountains near the famous booktown of Hay-on-Wye. The house sits just off the hill or common and therefore there is an enormous amount of walkable, explorable, just-sit-down-on-able hillside.

There are a host of activities in the local area. The Brecon Beacons National Park and the Wye and Usk Valleys mean that most rural activities are available. These include: hunting, shooting, river and lake fishing (ghillie available), horse riding, paragliding, regular gliding, rock climbing and abseiling, gorge walking & adventure days, rafting, kayaking, Canadian canoeing, archery, caving and potholing, golfing, mountain biking, mountain boarding, off-road driving, orienteering, paint-balling, quad biking, raft building, rally carting, target shooting, mountain walking and mountain skills, clay pigeon shooting, motoring along the wonderful mountain roads or simply sitting on Llandefalle Common under the Red Kites and Buzzards watching the Welsh Mountain Ponies in their natural habitat.

It is recommended that the latter activity be experienced with the following essential equipment: 1 large piece of Welsh cheese, a loaf of the local malted granary bread and at least one fine bottle of red!

 

Manager info

About: Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born. Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.

Why Brecon:
At Simply Chateau we only work with the very best rental properties on the market. All of our properties have been handpicked and we take our customer feedback extremely seriously. We operate a ‘three strikes and you’re out’ policy - that is to say if we have 3 negative reviews relating to any of our properties we cease to advertise it. We have properties to suit every taste and budget, all chosen with care by our expert team for their unique character, fantastic features and stunning countryside locations.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Free Concierge Service: As luxury rental specialists we have all the experience in the world helping each and every one of our customers find the most suitable property for their dream holiday. All you need to do is provide us with the details of what you imagine your dream holiday to be, and we'll find the perfect property for you. We can make sure that every arrangement is planned to perfection and each element of your holiday has been refined. Transfers, catering, maid service, tours and activities can all be prearranged to your specific requirements. 100% Financial Guarantee: We realize that financial protection is an important consideration when choosing a holiday company so to ensure you have complete peace of mind we are bonded members of ABTA. Lowest Price Guarantee: Simply Chateau ‘simply’ processes the bookings and credit card payments on the property owner’s behalf. The owners themselves set the rates so you know you are getting the best available rental rate when you book. Avoid Internet Scams: Each and every property listed on our website has been checked to make sure that it actually exists. This ensures that you do not become a victim of an internet scam as can happen through an ordinary listing website.
