Why Tracey Evans chose Wales
This cottage is all about location easily accessible but well placed for all sorts of holiday activity.On the doorstep of the Brecon Beacons, within minutes of a World Heritage site, 10 minutes from the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean and 40 minutes from Cardiff the capital city of Wales.
Yet when you return to our cottage your back in the peace of the countryside without a stressful journey down endless lanes we are very easy to find!
What makes this cottage unique
From the moment you arrive with a home made cake and some local produce we go out of our way to make this holiday memorable. We can arrange a farm tour to show you our way of life, or arrange walks that can introduce you to the flora and fauna of the area.
For the Salmon and Trout fisherman there is fishing available on our beat of the River Usk (extra cost)

Lovely cottage in an idyllic location. Located on a working farm with another holiday cottage alongside it. The owners were very hospitable and offered great advice on the area. If it had a washing machine and a better fridge and I would give it 5 stars
