Beautiful Country Estate set within stunning grounds and views across the mountains with amenities a short drive away

In the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this country home is the perfect spot for an extended family to get together for a short break. Be it a big birthday, special anniversary or simply just a long-awaited reunion, the property will comfortably host 12 guests both young and old.

This bright and airy property is decorated throughout with traditional country charm and offers antique furnishings in every room. The lounge is reminiscent of a stately home's drawing room and features huge windows with remarkable views of the garden. Cosy up in front of the wood burner and settle down to watch a film, as the room offers a library of DVDs for you to choose from and the sofas provide more than enough space for everyone to cosy up together. The kitchen maintains the farmhouse style, with an Aga heating the property throughout the colder months. Settle down for breakfast at the informal kitchen table or utilise the impressive wooden dining table, where 12 can sit down to a celebratory meal. Downstairs, you'll find three bedrooms and, continuing onto the first floor, you'll find a further four guest rooms, all with comfortable vintage beds and wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Surrounded by glorious mountains, the location of this property couldn't be better for families looking to enjoy an outdoor break. Walking and hiking routes start on your very doorstep, and the Black Mountain region is accessible approximately 20 miles away. For a more adventurous stay, head 13 miles north to a popular outdoor activity centre, where you can get involved in a host of activities including caving, abseiling, mountain biking and gorge walking. Those more equestrian may prefer to travel 7 miles up to the nearest riding centre, where you can tour the remarkable valleys on horseback. Be sure to rest up during the day and embark on an after dark adventure during your stay, as the International Dark Sky Reserve status of the Brecon area makes it a superb spot for stargazing. Weather permitting, you can spot the Milky Way, stunning constellations or even shooting stars from the dark fields of this South Wales beauty spot. Once you've exhausted the great outdoors, take some time to visit the nearby towns of Crickhowell (2 miles) or Abergavenny (8 miles). Visit the 15th-century Tretower Castle (2 miles) for a taste of life as Welsh nobility or servantry or visit the iconic Blaenavon Ironworks (12 miles). Abergavenny is the ideal spot for a family-friendly night out, with independent eateries and a unique independent cinema showing the biggest blockbusters.

This is a lovely holiday home, with sympathetic decor. It was spacious and safe outside in the grounds, so that it is ideal for children. It was lovely having a real fire, and we had plenty of wood. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, which was excellent, as we did a lot of cooking. The 2 fridge freezers were very welcome. We loved the glassesRead more cupboard with wine fridge. It was lovely and clean, with lots of towels, which are needed with small children. Lots of walks from the home Hide

Wonderful house and stunning surroundings. Very comfortable and the staff went out of their way to help, even getting extra batteries fo a hearing aid!

The Lodge was perfect for a family get together. The house keeper did some catering for us which was superb. The House was light and airy with beautiful views and beautiful grounds. Will be going back for sure.

11 of us (7 adults, 4 kids) stayed here in celebration of my parents 50th wedding anniversary. The estate is amazing and the cottage out of this world - our only regret is that we didn't stay for longer than 4 nights. The dcor is of a very high quality and standard and although a little worn in places, this suits the age and style of the property. Read moreI will definitely be looking to book again in future.
