Overview

About the property

House in Cwmgwdi, Brecon, Powys, Wales - Lots To Do - Walk The Biggest Peaks From The Door, Wonderful Cycling, Great For Children

Danyfan is beautiful, spacious holiday house with views over the gardens and up to the mountains. It's just 2 miles outside of Brecon but it feels like it's in the middle of nowhere.

Danyfan sleeps 10 (plus 2 on a sofa bed) in 5 stylish and comfortable bedrooms, with 4 luxurious bathrooms. 2 of the bedrooms can either be set up as twin or doubles, and there is a pull out bed and 2 cots if needed. It has loads of space, with a sitting room, a library, a big kitchen which is very well equipped and great for catering, and a wonderful conservatory with views of the mountains, and a pool /ping pong table.

Outside is a wonderful garden, great for children with plenty of space to roam and a trampoline, swings and slide to play on.

From Danyfan there are hundreds of activities to take on. You can walk from the front door straight up to Penyfan and its neighbouring peaks, Corn Du and Cribyn. We have some of the best road biking and mountain biking trails around on our doorstop. There is great fishing, horse riding, caving, climbing and trail running. There are spas, wonderful boutique shops and farmers markets, and country pubs, enjoying the various events throughout the year.

The owners, who live next door, are happy to advise on walking/ cycling routes and activities.

Families can take day trips to the Owl Centre, The National Showcaves, Botanic Garden of Wales, Brecon Mountain Railway and the nearby Cantref Adventure Centre. It's also a perfect base for festivals – The Green Man, Hay Literary Festival, Abergavenny Food Festival and Brecon Jazz.

Why Emma Bald chose Brecon

We were in London and decided to move to Brecon when we came here to visit a friend. We love the remoteness, the mountains, the clean air and all the space!

A lovely house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house at the foot of Pen y Fan and only a few minutes’ drive from Brecon. We stayed with family and friends and had a fantastic time. The house is spacious and well-equipped. Would certainly recommend it.

Excellent place for a group gaming/walkingholiday.

  • 5 of 5

Pretty garden, well kept and at the foot of Pen-y-van, which is a lovely climb. Well equipped house with all the kitchen utensils we needed for group cooking and bathrooms enough there were no queues on the mornings. Lots of rooms that were big enough for is to split up and play different board games and a big BBQ and outdoor seating in the back.

Empfehlenswert und gemütlich

  • 4 of 5

Danyfan ist super für große Gruppen geeignet, wir waren 10! Erwachsene und alles hat sich entspannt sortiert. Am besten hat uns die Küche gefallen; gemeinsam kochen und essen ist einfach klasse!

Trotzdem Emma nicht da war, wurden wir mit selbst gebackenen Brot und selbst gemachter Marmelade, Tee und Kaffee begrüßt, alles ist sehr sauber und gemütlich.

Man sollte wissen, dass Emma DIREKT neben dem Haus wohnt und die Straßen SEHR eng sind, sodass Spaziergänge entweder von einem anderen Ausgangspunkt gemacht werden sollten oder eben mit viel Aufmerksamkeit.
