Nestled at the foot of the Black Mountains, sits this beautiful 16th century house with spectacular views of the medieval Tretower Castle and the surrounding landscape. Inside, you’ll find a cosy bolthole, perfect for putting your feet up after a day exploring the Brecon Beacons. The interior is a quirky mix of artwork, vintage fabrics and antique or second hand furniture, all adding to the charming character of the building. It invites you to sink into one of the sofas in front of the wood burning stove or tuck into some Welsh cakes at the kitchen table as you plan your next walk in the mountains.
The large kitchen and dining space is the heart of the house where you’ll find a large oak refectory table with beautiful mismatched chairs on one side and a church pew on the other. After dinner, retreat to the living room where you can relax on one of the Chesterfield sofas and get stuck into a board game or curl up in an armchair with a book. There’s a separate TV and games room upstairs so the kids can have their own space.
There are five bedrooms sleeping up to 11 in total and all have their own unique character thanks to the eclectic decor with patterned wallpaper, bold Art Deco sinks and vintage furniture. Four of the bedrooms are in the main house with an ensuite king room, a double, a twin and a triple. The fifth bedroom is located in ‘The Cwtch’ outside which has its own bathroom and kitchenette and can be made up as a twin or a king.
On warm afternoons, make the most of the scenery in the garden, playing table tennis or darts as a late lunch sizzles away on the BBQ. In the evening, gather around the firepit and enjoy a bit of stargazing in this International Dark Sky Reserve.
There’s plenty to explore in the area, from the peaks of the Black Mountains to ancient castles and bustling markets. Walk from the house to Crickhowell along the River Usk, perhaps braving a swim along the way. Here you’ll be able to stock up on supplies, including some treats for the BBQ from one of the butchers. Ty Sinsir is also within walking distance of Y Bwyty Bach restaurant, located within the castle itself. As well as dozens of fantastic walks, bikes can be hired locally and watersports are available on Llangorse Lake. A visit to the town of Hay-on-Wye, famous for its annual Literary Festival, makes for a great day out with its many bookshops and markets.
