Such a lovely place, surrounded by beautiful landscape. Fantastic place for walks. waterfalls, hills, reservoir, canal. The house has so much room, especially for children to play. The sky at night from the garden is amazing. We brought a telescope but the owners will lend you one.

We had a 4 night stay with friends, altogether there were 4 adults and 4 children. We absolutely loved every minute of our holiday. The Farm has everything you could want and it instantly felt like home when we arrived. The house is cosy, yet extremely spacious, the interior is beautiful and so well done!! I really didn't want to...

About the neighbourhood
Abercynafon is superbly located within the Brecon Beacons, situated in a remote yet accessible setting, near the picturesque Blaen y Glyn waterfalls and designated SSI Talybont Reservoir. For bird and fishing enthusiasts, there is a 'hide' and trout fishing on the reservoir. For keen cyclists, the Taff Trail runs past the house, offering up an exciting challenge. For walkers there is an abundance of walks to suit all abilities. Brecon Mountain Steam Railway is a short drive up the valley. This is a very popular spot for hill walkers and mountain bikers being an easy access point on to the mountains. Talybont on Usk:7km for local shop, post office, cafe and excellent, award-winning pubs and places to eat. Brecon: 20km. The perfect centre to explore the National Park. A Georgian town... more
