                  Car: Necessary

                  We are on the door step of Crychan forest and so it is possible to walk straight to the forest for many interesting and attractive walks. This forest also has mountain biking and horse riding routes marked up. It is also a good place for bird watching. If you walk opposite the cottage and up the footpaths you reach the Brecon Beacons National Park a 2 hour hike will get you to the reservoir .

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1960

                  About the owner: We are a family of four grown up children, our parents bought the property and we now share it between us. As children we spent many summer holidays playing in the stream just below the cottage and enjoyed cycling in the forest. Now we let our children play in the stream whilst we enjoy walking in the trails in the woods or up on the Brecon Beacons.

                  Why the Owner Chose Brecon:
                  The lay out of the property is very social with the kitchen dinning room and the fact that there is a soft sofa in the kitchen means people can easily chat to the cooks whilst relaxing with a glass of wine. Meanwhile in the lounge you can get away from everyone if you want to read a book by the wood burner.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  As the house has always been used for holidays rather than a house for living in full time, and therefore its been set up to cater for groups of people or equally just 2 people can feel at home.
