The cottage stands slightly separate from its few neighbours in a wide valley, the roads are narrow, and the fields, heathland and soft hills encourage exploration. There’s plenty of space for four, the modern, bright kitchen has everything you need for cooking and a stable door to the outside where sheep munch and red kites swoop overhead. A terrace at the front has lovely views for summer evening barbecues or picnics.
You’ll feel very cosy hunkering down in front of the wood-burner with books and a radio, there are binoculars for bird spotting and two pubs which serve food close by. The hardy will be striding the hills, mountain biking, or ambling round the huge Llyn Brianne reservoir. It’s a glorious slice of countryside.
Stock up in Llandovery, return to stargaze on clear nights (it’s a Dark Sky Area) and very peaceful bedrooms with soft organic bedding.
