This tucked-away bolthole is perfect for a romantic getaway. Found equidistant between the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains and the Forest of Dean, it’s a great base

The property is a great place to unwind at, yet with so many place of interest vying for your attention in the area, you may not know where to start. A good place start would be Hay-on-Wye, which is famed for its bookshops and no end of eateries. Stop by Talgarth Mills, or take a walk to Llyswen Hillfort.

Train enthusiasts will love the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway; also those interested in Welsh history wouldn’t want to miss out on the Big Pit Mining Museum.

The cottage embraces its open-plan layout to good effect comprised of a main open plan living area and a separate shower room and is surprisingly roomy for two people. The living area has a dining table and chairs, couch and armchair all clustered round a wood burner, where full height windows look out onto the river. For entertainment, there a radio for your use, compatible with most mp3 players, smartphones and tablets. There is also a small TV/DVD in the main living area. The kitchen area is fully fitted with electric hob, a combination microwave oven and a fridge with ice box. The bathroom is a shower cubicle and WC. When it’s time to sleep, simply open the cupboard doors and a double bed pulls down easily into the room.

Stepping outside, there is a small patio where you can relax and look out over the River Wye. There is ample parking for one car close to the front of the property.

The lodge is in a beautiful setting. The only noise is the river and the birdsong - perfect getaway. The bed was cosy, warm and soft with a great vista out towards the river.

Lovely cottage, perfect location close to the River Wye. Nice homely feel to the lodge. Ponies in the nearby field were not friendly though!
