Set in a wild flower garden in Mid Wales, an Off Grid Eco- cottage for two, right off the beaten track, but only 8 miles from Hay on Wye and Brecon, on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. With lovely views of the Black Mountains, close to the open countryside, it is perfect for cycling, walking ,star gazing , wild swimming, and relaxing.

El lugar

A stone built, cosy cottage, now lovingly restored and insulated with sheeps' wool, lined with local hardwood, and using recycled and reused materials, all set in an organic wildflower garden.
Heating and cooking is by wood-burning stove (logs provided). The cooking range has a large hotplate area and a warming oven. It heats up very quickly. Electricity is by off-grid wind and solar power. Use the monitor to see just how much electricity is needed to boil the kettle.- you might be surprised by the amount of energy needed. We also provide a Kellykettle for use outside (boils in a very short time).
We have tried to make materials and bedding fairly traded , locally sourced and/or organic to make your stay as carbon neutral as possible. There's even a mountain-bike tandem that you're welcome to borrow! (helmets provided).
Ty Gwennol is close to Hay on Wye and the Brecon Beacons National Park, but in a quiet area of countryside with a local shops, cafes and pubs within a couple of miles.

Disponible para huéspedes

You will have the whole cottage and garden to yourself, except our tool and canoe stores. (We may need access the garden ourselves if there is hay to be made or grass to be mowed).

We had a great time at Ty Gwennol. From the directions getting there. The advice of what to do in the area and the beautiful cottage we felt very looked after. The cottage is just as described and better. It is very secluded, and has an indoor wood stove, perfect for enjoying a few glasses of wine next to in the evening. It is situated in picturesque countryside with some incredibly steep and winding roads to really make you feel you are in the middle of nowhere. From the cottage we had good views of the black mountains which with a short drive we could also go and explore.

We both loved this cottage! It was really good fun seeing what we could cook in the cob oven and having a fire going in the evening. The most relaxing holiday we have we have ever had which revolved mostly around eating, walking and thinking about eating some more! Sue and Jez were so welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed.

Ty Gwennol is a beautiful, Welsh eco hideaway in the Brecon Beacons. It is perfect for a cosy break away from it all. The cottage has been lovingly restored from a sheep shed, has stunning views with all you need for a home from home stay. It has an added bonus of being off grid which makes creating your own heat for food/ hot water a real treat. It was so warm and well equipped with everything you would need - including an amazing tandem which we were able to borrow for a quick ride! Sue was brilliant with communication and checked in with us to make sure we had all we needed - we were out when she popped by but she left a lovely postcard with a note. Thank you, Sue, for the delicious bottle of cider which awaited us on our arrival too! We can't recommend Ty Gwennol enough and hope to stay again soon.

Ty Gwennol is fabulous.... quiet, peaceful and delightful. The garden is lovely, and private, and the house is a perfect retreat for two. Cooking on the wood stove is great fun and the place is cosy and comfy. Recommended! !

Ty Gwennol ligt hoog en afgelegen. De tuin is wild en weelderig met wilde bloemen, vogels en insecten en overscherende raven en buizerds; de stilte en sterrenhemel zijn er heel mooi. Als je snel voor een kleine boodschap nodig hebt moet je wel een eindje rijden. Maar als je diep wilt slapen en tot jezelf wilt komen is Ty Gwennol the place to be.
