The property

Nestled in the village of Gilwern within the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons National Park), is this wonderful cottage, The Cwtch.

This pet-friendly dwelling has a characterful interior with a quirky fireplace on the landing and painted stone walls, ideal for a couple seeking a romantic getaway with their dog.

On arrival, leave your vehicle in an off-road parking space before entering the sitting room, which features a sofa and a wall-mounted Smart TV to relax.

The kitchen/diner is adjacent and is a compact but efficient space with an electric oven and hob, fridge with an ice box and a breakfast bar to tuck-into snacks and meals.

Savour a glass of wine in the small courtyard to recount the days adventures; afterwards venture to the first floor to freshen up in the contemporary shower room.

There is a bedroom with a king-size bed, a dresser to assist with your night-time routine and bedside tables to keep your favourite book.

From the foot of the door, you will find The Towpath Inn, a village pub with a beer garden, The Corn Exchange to sample delicious wine and a convenience store for all your essentials.

The Cwtch is a superb base for history buffs with Big Pit National Coal Museum, Tretower Court and Castle and Clydach Gorge; all with a fascinating insight into the past.

Also within easy reach is Brecon Beacons National Park; here you can ramble the scenic landscape, hike up hills and stop off at quiet reservoirs for a picnic.

Venture to the market town of Abergavenny, home to the ruins of Abergavenny Museum, beautiful gardens for calming walk and a cluster of pubs for a refreshing pint.

For a lovely dwelling in Mid Wales, whisk your other half to The Cwtch.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
