Cae Post description

This 200-year-old, charming, detached former toll cottage set within the Brecon Beacons National Park has retained many of its period features. Caepost cottage sympathetically mixes the old with the new, the larger than average living/dining room with pillars, stone walls, wood burning stove, original oak beams and wooden shuttered windows contrasting perfectly with the generous contemporary kitchen and sun-room and a quirky, dogleg, oak staircase leading to the first floor. It is conveniently situated next to the quiet B4560 and perfectly placed on the edge of Talgarth. Comfortably furnished with every convenience to make your stay one to remember. Good mobile phone signals, Bluetooth stereo/CD in the living room with wi-fi throughout and bedside radio-USB-iPhone chargers in all of the bedrooms.
Peacefully situated within ½ an acre of wooded, dog friendly and private enclosed gardens, settle on the comfortable garden furniture on the raised decking or on the sofa in the sun room with a glass of wine or a cup of tea, taking in the wonderful views over the local fields and Black Mountains, especially at sunset. There is an abundance of wildlife - an ornithologist’s dream - buzzards, red kites and woodpeckers are regular visitors, with many of our guests having commented and enjoyed the bird feeding station outside the sun room.
Relax, unwind or just go wild. Caepost is close to the market town of Brecon, Crickhowell, Hay-on-Wye and Llangorse Lake, providing an ideal holiday base for visitors wishing to explore both the Black Mountains and the eastern end of the Brecon Beacons. With the Wye Valley to the north and the Usk Valley to the east, this area is home to many activities for all ages and abilities including walking, cycling, fishing, gliding, canoeing, mountain biking and horse riding.
The Brecon Beacons has been awarded the International Dark Sky Reserve status making it the first in Wales. So if it’s the stars you are after, just sit on the garden’s raised decking or drive to Llangorse Lake, 1 of 10 recommended spots and just 5 minutes from the cottage and just stargaze. The owner is a Brecon Beacons Ambassador so let him help with your itinerary if you require any help. 2017 is the Year of Legends in the Brecon Beacons National Park - be sure to visit and learn about the history, legends and stories of the area.
There are several lovely cycle routes, bridle paths, river walks and footpaths that can be accessed from the cottage. A heated swimming pool can be found 1 mile away on a local campsite that is open to the public during the summer season. A ¼-mile walk into Talgarth and you will find the tourist information office, cattle market and many award-winning shops, supplying locally produced food, butchers, delicatessen, supermarket, restaurants, cafés, fish and chip shop and 4 dog friendly pubs, the nearest being 300 yards.
