Forming part of an elegant Victorian townhouse and formally the old chemist, this spacious apartment enjoys a great location within the heart of Sennybridge, the largest of the villages within the Upper Usk Valley. Sennybridge is well served with a well-stocked village post office store, several pubs, petrol stations and a fish and chip shop.

It’s tucked between the Mynydd Epynt and the Carmarthen Fans, and surrounded by beautiful countryside, making it a perfect destination for outside adventures. Explore the impressive National Showcaves for Wales at Dan yr Ogof (10 miles) and discover the underground waterfalls of Cathedral Cave. Spend the day walking ‘Waterfall Country’ at Ystradfellte (13 miles) seeking out the spectacular cascades of the area. And a trip to Brecon itself is a must, with its pubs, restaurants and museums to explore.

Step off the high street and into the spacious entrance hall with high ceilings showcasing the solid oak stairwell featuring a beautiful chandelier. Here guests can leave walking boots and coats behind before stepping into the lounge, situated to the front of the building and enjoying natural light from the two large picture windows and original doors. It is fitted with California shutters that set off the stylish interior, and comfortable seating in front of a feature stove and Smart TV – a place where guests can truly relax. Across the entrance hall, climb the three stairs to the generously sized kitchen/diner finished with contemporary style and soft lighting creating the perfect space for a romantic supper for two. It is well-equipped providing everything you need during your stay. The quirky shower room was formally the chemist medicine preparation room. The oak staircase leads down to a double bedroom, a sanctuary for couples with dressing gowns, slippers, and soft Egyptian cotton sheets for a perfect night’s sleep.

The Old Chemist Shop is beautifully appointed and was immaculately presented. Everything you could need for a holiday stay was there, all good quality and spotlessly clean. In my experience it is very difficult to find a property for two people that is 'full size'. This certainly is, it has a full sized kitchen, lounge, bedroom and bathroom. It makRead morees for very comfortable living, not always a given in a 'holiday rental'. Hide

Me and my partner stayed here for a little weekend getaway to celebrate our Anniversary and when I tell you it was perfect, I mean it! We absolutely loved our stay here and will definitely be coming back. Straight off the bat we were made to feel at home with a wonderful welcome from Roy who gave us recommendations on places to go for walks and dayRead mores out as well as where to go if we wanted a quiet little drink as well. The Welcome gifts were also a wonderful treat as well. 5 Stars! Hide

Beautiful property with lots of little personal extras such as slippers and dressing gowns. Very clean, comfortable and well maintained.

We loved our stay at the old chemist shop. The flat was immaculate and clean. The decor was classy and there were nice personal touches like the home made Welsh cakes, bread and champagne. Was a great location to see Brecon. We particularly like four waterfalls walk which was daily accessible.

If you are reading this review you must be thinking about booking. Stop reading and just book! Quality recent renovation with a lot of personal touches to make it an enjoyable stay. Great location to explore Brecon Beacons too. Recommend Crickhowell, 4 waterfall walk and Aberglasney Gardens.
