About this Property

Pen-yr-Heol is just perfect for a large family get together. This 17th century traditional Welsh long house with attached stone barn has been renovated and restored with much of the original character being retained. The house nestles at the foot of the Black Mountain on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park and is situated 3 miles north of Ystradgynlais in the Upper Swansea Valley. The house sits in a large garden with half an acre of its own land where you can listen to the burbling stream and birdsong as a mountain stream runs past one side of the property and a small river flows at the back (fenced off for small children). This cottage is an ideal base for a family or activity groups wishing to spend time together with easy access to both the sea and the mountains; and it is a very good location for visiting the new Geo Park. Palleg Golf Club 1.5 miles, fishing 7 miles. Great for stargazing due to no light pollution.


Sleeps 20, 8 bedrooms. The farmhouse kitchen is very well equipped with ample work and storage space, one double and one single oven and hobs, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, two fridges and a freezer. A utility room contains a tumble dryer. There is a most attractive oak beamed dining room with long dining table and benches with an open fireplace. The sitting room has large oak beams and is spacious and comfortable with sofas and chairs and large inglenook fireplace with a multi-fuel stove, TV, DVD and a payphone. The house is suitable for less-abled rather than disabled visitors.
