About Audrey M Oakley

Tom and I would love to welcome you to our lovely, homely cottage where we hope you will enjoy a relaxing and peaceful holiday. This cottage is new to the holiday let market as we like to go there often ourselves it is so lovely. We live 20 miles away, about 30 mins, so if you need us we can be there very quickly. There are many activities such as walking from the cottage up onto the hills, horseriding, sailing on Llangorse lake, canal boats from Brecon, canoeing on the River Wye, shopping in Brecon or visit the Theatre or cinema. Relax and browse around the book shops of Hay-on-Wye, or shop in the small boutiques and have a coffee or lunch in one of the local cafe's /restaurants/pub.

Audrey M Oakley purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Audrey M Oakley chose Wales

I bought the property in 1998 because of its wonderful location. Down in a dingle surrounded by lovely countryside and limited traffic as its on a bridlepath. It has been my home since then and as such is fully equiped and very cosy with much more than the basic holiday cottage such as books, cds etc. The cottage is lovely and secluded off the beaten track yet only 3 miles from Talgarth with shops and 8 miles from the nearest town of Brecon. There are two fabulous country pubs within 2 miles who serve good real ale and do lovely foood and have fab log fires.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace and serenity. Nature. Cosy log fire and comfortable sofas etc

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Thank you Audrey for a wonderful cottage, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It had everything we needed, better than home from home, especially the wood-burning stove. Lovely location, very peaceful with lots of walks from the doorstep. We enjoyed the cottage, garden and local area so much that we will need to come back to visit all the places of interest that we never got round to. Katy and Paul September 2011'



Hi Audrey- just another thanks for our lovely stay- we have been raving about your cottage to everyone we meet- it was absolutely perfect, so welcoming and homely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would definitely return,



Best wishes,

Lovely peaceful location. Ideal for a relaxing break.

A beautifully presented and well equipped cottage. It is in a lovely location, down a quiet country track, but not too remote.

Will most likely visit again.

Homely,Very quiet,lovely skies

  • 4 of 5

Had the best two nights sleep Ive had in ages due to the lovely quietness and comfy bed.

Nestled away at the bottom of a small valley, a lovely hideaway.

Well equipped kitchen, nice woodburner and a homely feel.

Talgarth was a lovely place to explore. So friendly. Excellent lunch at the Mill and excellent evening meal en route to Brecon at the Griffin in Felling Fach.

And beautiful mountain scenery to enjoy en route to Talgarth from the Cottage.

Beautiful cottage in tranquil surroundings and in easy reach of anything you'd want for a relaxing break. We did lots of walking in picturesque aonb, returning to light the Woodburner for cosy evenings. Cottage was well equipped and beds were really comfy. Would definitely return.
