The detail

Head up the track, whizz past the sheep and marvel at the views as you uncover this simple stone cottage in the very heart of the hills. A much loved family home for many a year, now throwing open its doors in the spirit of sharing, this oasis of calm will leave you captivated and you’ll find the walking second to none.

One of the very first eco-houses in Wales, the garden windmill gently whirs for electricity, the natural spring supplies the water and log fired stoves ensure you're toasty….there’s even a log fired sauna to enjoy! There is central heating and satellite Wi-Fi too…even a TV and DVD, all cleverly fed from off grid sources.

The kitchen is the heart of the home; the huge log stove dominates the hearth, with handy gas hob for simple suppers and inspiring views down the valley from the dining table, or nip out on to the terrace for jaw dropping night skies. The sitting room comes complete with another cosy log burner and large day beds, making it perfect for either lazing with those you love, or converting into a twin bedroom.

The master bedroom is beautifully dressed with luxurious linen, has a fun tub bath and en-suite, plus more of those great views. Head back down stairs to find a handy desk area, perfect for those needing to study and then step outside into a Swallows and Amazons escape, blissful views, a garden designed for childhood dens and adventures, or simply sitting back and popping another of the local butchers yummy sausages on the barbecue.

Crickhowell, is just five minutes drive away with great independent shops, pubs and coffee shops. In the market town of Abergavenny, you will find a Norman Castle, farmers markets and the fabulous Food Festival each September. Brecon, Hay on Wye, Cardiff and Hereford are all in easy reach, as well as Wales Industrial Heritate sites in Blaenavon.

The walking and cycling trails are second to none, with stunning trails up into the Black Mountains straight from the door and great adventures down by the mountain stream without getting into the car. There are good bike hire options available and delivery can be simply arranged with them.
