The Propertyhouse is a magnificent Georgian farmhouse on a 240 acre mixed farm with sheep, cattle and arable, nestled between the River Usk and The Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal.

Accommodation

Sleeps 13 - 7 bedrooms

There is a very large traditional farmhouse kitchen with a super four-oven green Aga for cooking. With flagstone floors and a great oak dining table for sociable dining, a Welsh Dresser, butchers block and a large American style fridge.

There are several additional rooms off the kitchen - the "Old Dairy" (where the salting block once was) contains a microwave, a chest deep freeze and ample storage space, plus a storage room. There is another back-kitchen with a dishwasher, a washing machine, another kitchen table and a sink.


Beyond that, there is a boot room beside the back door leading to

Downstairs bathroom: Toilet and shower - ideal if coming in wet and muddy after a day out hill-walking, exploring the Taff Trail by mountain bikes or paddling a canoe on the canal.

There is a very spacious and sunny conservatory to seat everyone comfortably with two enormous sofas. Double doors lead out onto wooden decking with a "Retro" BBQ and then out to the gardens beyond.

The sitting room has three large comfy sofas and a large wood-burning stove, set in a great inglenook fireplace with the featured original bread oven.

The second sitting room also has a table and chairs set in the bay window with views over the garden. Again there are two comfy sofas and a wood-burning stove set in a large stone fireplace.


Throughout this lovely house,you will discover the original wide, dark oak floor boards which in some places are slightly uneven and a little creaky, great oak beams and in the attic bedroom the exposed Cruck beams in the roof. Enjoy the views from the casement windows, over the farm land to the River Usk, which is only one water meadow away. One could almost feel you were living in a film location from Georgian times. This house is very large and friendly with plenty of spaces, nook and crannys where you can sit quietly if you wish. This is a house that welcomes families and friends, ensuring there is plenty of space for everyone.

LocationMid Wales

This is the go to place for outdoor enthusiasts to make the most of the fantastic walking, riding & cycling opportunities, especially in the Cambrian Mountains National Park. The Ceredigion Coastal Path features numerous trails to choose from depending on how far you wish to travel. Whether for a full walking holiday or just a stroll along the cliffs to a village pub, this unspoilt route is perfect and has views out across the famous Cardigan Bay which is home to the UKs largest pod of dolphins.

Dotted along the Wales-West England border are lots of lovely market towns, many of which have their own castle. This disputed ground has a large number of Roman and Norman medieval fortresses, today some are only ruins or just the earthen works remain however there are plenty which have restored to their former glory and are open to visitors.

Mid Wales also just touches on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, a popular mountain range for exploring caves, forest activities and other more extreme outdoor sports such as rock climbing and abseiling. A number of historic railways mean other regions of Wales are easily accessible for a day trip, and make for an enjoyable way to travel and take in the sights.
