    Llaethdy-Milkhouse sleeping up to 8 guests

    A former milkhouse in ’The Jewel of the Black Mountains’, where you can try water sports on the river, visit a restored working 18th century water mill or simply take in the beautiful scenery.
    Llaethdy - Milkhouse was once the old dairy in the small town of Talgarth and what you see today once included a cow shed and hay barn, but has now been skillfully converted into a holiday home. In days gone by the farmer milked his cows here and delivered it from a churn by horse and cart; it wasn’t very far to travel so it must have been very fresh! The detached barn, with its oak beams, offers bright open plan living space, ground floor bedrooms and shower room and two large first floor bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom.
    The ancient market town of Talgarth is an ideal base for visitors wishing to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park on foot, particularly as it forms the "Gateway to the Black Mountains" which act as a backdrop to the town. There are wonderful walking opportunities on the doorstep and an annual walking festival in the town in May. While in the town, visit the local businesses around the pretty stone streets where friendly staff will be able to offer you some of the finest local produce, watch the gentle river as it flows under the Medieval Tower Bridge or, at Christmas gaze at the dazzling lights. The town offers a real chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Thanks to the BBC’s Village SOS programme, Talgarth now has a fully restored working water mill with a very popular café. There are cosy pubs with roaring log fires, real ales and home cooked food; all within an easy stroll of Llaethdy - Milkhouse.
    Discover Parc Wood or Pwll-yr-Wrach waterfalls and nature reserve, take a look at the views from the top of Bronllys Castle, or simply admire the spectacular views from the common land overlooking the town. Close to Brecon, Crickhowell and Hay-on-Wye, Talgarth is an ideal base for visitors wishing to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park on foot, whether it’s the high peaks or the lush green valleys of the Wye and the Usk which capture the imagination. Talgarth and the surrounding countryside is a haven for artists and photographers. For a fascinating insight into the life and times of workers during the early years of the Industrial Revolution, why not visit Blaenavon Ironworks? The site is home to one of the best preserved 18th century ironworks in Europe and comes complete with furnaces, cast houses, a magnificent water balance tower, cupola furnace and ironworker’s cottages. Take a trip on a vintage steam locomotive across the narrow gauge heritage railway that runs beside Pontsticill and Pentwyn Reservoirs. You could spend a lifetime in the Brecon Beacons National Park and not see all there is to see; but you can discover quite a lot if you make Llaethdy – Milkhouse your home for your holiday whether it’s a short break or slightly longer stay. Fresh air, wide open spaces, a creative atmosphere and loads to entertain you, whatever the weather. There’s plenty to enjoy after dark too, from superb annual festivals, full of authentic Welsh flavour, to the famously clear, starry skies. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    "A lovely comfortable and cosy cottage in a peaceful location. We arrived to find fresh flowers, cakes,tea,coffee,sugar and milk and juice in the fridge. A very welcome touch. The kitchen provided everything we needed for our weeks holiday. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. The neaest shop,the Co-op is only a 5 minute walk away There was also a couple of pubs and a very good fish and chip shop, all within walking distance. The surrounding country side is stunning and we enjoyed many walks,some of which started a short distance from the cottage. Many thanks to Keith and Eirwen for providing such a lovely holiday home."

    Confirmed guest – 7 Apr 2018
    "We had a lovely few days in the cottage, we met up with our family and although it rained the whole time we had great fun going out for the days and playing games in the evening. The cottage is well equipped to meet the needs of a family. The only problem we encountered was that it was difficult to control the temperature of the upstairs shower. However we all just used the downstairs shower so it wasn't too much of a problem.We had a lovely day out at the Big Pit and also a run on the Brecon National Railway. We enjoyed a tour of Talgarth Mill and the wee ones took part in a workshop within the Mill making rag rug sheep.We had a lovely meal in the Bridge End Inn where the owner made us very welcome. The food was excellent."
    Alan – 24 Mar 2018
    "A lovely well appointed cottage, with everything you need and more, a lovely thought by Eirwen and Keith leaving a Birthday card and chocolates for my wifes birthday. Other little touches of tea, coffe, milk and orange juice, also plenty to keep the young one entertained. The weather wasnt great but we still had a great time as a family. Local pub was good and everyone we met were friendly and helpful. A place we would definatley use again."
    Michelle – 23 Jan 2018
    "We had a wonderful stay. Eirwen and Keith couldn’t have been more welcoming and the cottage is just lovely. We loved Talgarth- plenty of nice walks with our dog and lots of friendly locals. It was a really relaxing break and a chance for some real quality time with family."
    Abby – 10 Jan 2018
    "A group of us visited Llaethdy for a weekend away together and couldn’t fault the house. It was clean, great location, and good value for money. Mrs Jones even came out to visit us when we had arrived and changed one of the zip and link twins to a double as it was all couples staying. We were also welcomed with a mini hamper which was lovely. The village also has a co-op and some pubs which suited us well, and it’s a great location if you’re looking to do a few walks, no matter what ‘level’ of walker you are. Would highly recommend! Thank-you"
