Hen Glyn is a Grade II listed cottage (thatch under tin) in the Brecon Beacons National Park, with direct access to the Black Mountain where there is a 'right to roam' freely. See inside this Brecon Beacons Cottage. This is one of our best cottages for hill-walking, and has an outdoor heated hot-tub so you can enjoy the mountain views and relax with your partner/friends. It sits next to the modern farmhouse next door where the owner lives, both buildings in a parallel line and facing same way, not each other. You'll find excellent way-marked walks start right at the front door or the farm has 230 acres of private land. All work has been undertaken using traditional conservation and eco-friendly materials (natural paints, limewashes etc). Read this five star review here.
The ground floor has a large open-plan lounge diner, with a kitchen off and a small shower-room/toilet.
Up (steep) stairs there are two bedrooms (one double, one twin) separated by a landing area with its own sofa and TV/DVD.
A wood-burning stove heats the lounge, and there is full central heating throughout.
The cottage feels surprisingly light, fresh and contemporary inside, whilst respecting the original C18 oak beams, crucks, panelling and (steep) stairs.
There is a TV (Sky FreeSat channels) in the lounge, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and all the other usual equipment.
Outside there is a hot tub to the rear (to take advantage of the mountain views) - available all year round.
To the front there is a small garden area with patio dining set etc.
Mae Hen Glyn yn bwthyn gradd II wedi ei leoli ym mharc Mannau Brycheiniog, gydag mynedfa uniongyrchol ir mynyddoedd Du, ble mae'r hawl ganddoch i grwydro'n rhydd. Hwn yw ein bwthyn gorau ar gyfer cerdded. Mae ganddo twb poeth tu fas yn edrych dros olygfeydd anhygoel. Mae Hen Glyn wedi ei leoli mewn cwrt fferm, 230 erw, gyda'r ty fferm fodern drws nesaf iddo. Mae'r ardal yn hardd iawn a syndod heb gael ei ddarganfod gan lawer o bobl eto, gydag nifer o lwybrau i gerdded tu fas i'r adeilad. Roedd y bwthyn yn wag am 30 mlynedd cyn cael ei adnewyddu'n ddiweddar gan ddefnyddio defnyddiau traddodiadol ac eco-gyfeillgar.
"Perfect! Thank you so much! The hot tub was just what we needed after a three hour hour walk on the mountain - what an adventure! Excellent." ~ Tracy, Marc & family from Sutton Colfield
"We arrived as strangers & left feeling like we were leaving old friends behind. Jennifer and David (in the farmhouse next door) gave us such a warm welcome...nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was fabulous and the hot tub was the icing on the cake! Not to mention the wonderful countryside. We thank you for making our weekend so wonderful!"
"Thank you for such a warm welcome! The cottage is beautifully finished - and we really enjoyed the hot tub - staring up at the starry skies after a hard day walking was quite magical - so thanks Jennifer, David and your children for your warmth & kindness particulary during your busiest time of the year on the farm!" ~ Vicki, Kevin & dog from Leicestershire
