Black Mountain View description

Holiday home
Black Mountain View is a luxurious cabin, set just a mile from Llanafan Fawr and can sleep two people. This all ground floor property has a king-size double bedroom with an en-suite shower room, an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner and a shared external utility. Outside there is off road parking for two cars, lockable bike storage, stabling for horses (to be pre-arranged with the owner), a veranda with furniture and shared use of the garden with summerhouse, ornamental pond, furniture and a barbecue. With unspoilt countryside waiting to be discovered, Black Mountain View is a lovely holiday base.

Peacefully situated amidst beautiful, unspoilt countryside, the rural village of Llanafan Fawr is home to an old church and Powys' oldest pub, The Red Lion, which serves fine, traditional fare. Set in the slopes of the Llanafan Valley and within easy distance of the equally beautiful Wye Valley, the surrounding countryside is renowned for its walking and mountain biking opportunities, though it also provides an excellent backdrop for fishing and bird-watching along the Wye and Irfon rivers. Builth Wells is also within easy driving distance and this picturesque market town provides a variety of interesting crafts stores and many collectors' fairs. The annual Royal Welsh Show is hosted in the town every July and is a colourful, fascinating fete. The Brecon Beacons National Park and the spectacular Black Mountains are easy to reach from the area, making this an ideal place for people looking to enjoy the outdoor life or simply relax against this stunning backdrop.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

The cottage is exceptional and all the furnishings and fittings are of a thoughtful and very high quality. Uninterrupted beautiful views of the mountains and countryside welcome you as the view from the lovely balcony. It felt so warm and homely that the temptation was to to stay put and revel in all that nature and active country life entertained us with. We will be going back and have no reservations whatsoever in recommending this cottage.

The quality of the building and furnishings was of a high standard. Everything had been thought of in this cottage. Lovely comfortable bed and matching furniture throughout. The log burner was a plus; we stayed on the coldest night of the winter but we were nice and toasty watching the stars through the balcony doors - magical. The owner was very welcoming on arrival. We loved everything about the cottage and our break away. Well worth a visit and definitely has the wow factor.

The cottage was beautiful; tastefully decorated and furnished with absolutely stunning views. It was warm and cosy and we loved having the wood burner, we lit it every night. Everything had been thought of. It was great having the use of the well equipped utility room attached to the cottage. The owners made us very welcome and we will definitely recommend to our family and friends. We were looking for rest and relaxation, and we certainly achieved that here, hopefully we will be able to make another visit in the future.

A very warm welcome, nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was superb, in glorious countryside with a great view. I couldn't imagine a more relaxing, get-away-from-it-all, luxurious break in some of the best countryside in the UK. A dream break.

We loved the peace and quiet of the cottage being in the middle of nowhere. The cottage has been built and furnished to a very high standard and the balcony area was fantastic too! The owners couldn't have been more friendly! Our intentions when we go away is to relax and not really do anything. Some might think that a waste when there is so much to see and do but we saw and did everything we needed just by staying in the cottage....stunningly beautiful.

The accommodation was better than we expected, with everything that was needed for self catering. It was decorated in calm pastel shades with lights everywhere. It was warm and cosy, even in damp weather. It had beautiful views from every window and the balcony which was a bonus. The owners were very helpful but not in your face. The parking was right out side the accommodation.
