About Ann's Bungalow at Wern-y-Marchog

Ann’s Bungalow is an exceptionally comfortable cottage that sleeps six people in three bedrooms. The bungalow has recently been renovated and has received extensive recognition for the quality of the accommodation. Part of Wern-y-Marchog Farm in Cantref, Ann's Bungalow is located just outside of Brecon and is ideal for families or friends who want to enjoy the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park and the famous Welsh hospitality.

Unless you arrive at night, the first thing you will notice about Ann’s Bungalow is the incredible scenery. The Brecon Beacons are not as dramatic as Snowdon and the mountains of North Wales, but they are no less beautiful. Pen-y-Fan is the best known of all the peaks in the National Park, and there are footpaths from the property suitable for young and old. It does get incredibly busy up there, particularly on a bright day, so our tip is either to go up early or scale Corn Du, Fan Y Big or Cribyn for equally breathtaking views of the valley that was carved in part by a glacier. If hill climbing is your passion, add the Sugarloaf and the Skirrid to your itinerary, and maybe throw in Table Mountain for good measure!

If you prefer two wheels to two feet, you will love the off-road cycling opportunities in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The Mynydd Du loop is one of the more challenging, or there is an easier eight mile loop near Sennybridge. Hardcore riders should undoubtedly try the Black Mountains Blitz Black trail that starts in Talgarth and provides thirty five miles of white-knuckle downhills mixed with super singletrack and amazing views.

All that exercise is sure to work up a substantial appetite, but that is not a problem in an area renowned for the quality of its local food. Tuck into local lamb or beef washed down with wine made from grapes grown on the side of the Sugarloaf. Abergavenny holds an annual food festival every September, but you do not have to look further than the weekly market or your nearest farm shop to pick up the ingredients for an unforgettable meal at any time of year.

It is no surprise that the weather in the Brecon Beacons can be a bit inclement - after all, the rain is one reason Wales is so lush and green. If the skies open then avoid the mountains and head to Hay-on-Wye, Brecon, Crickhowell or Abergavenny for a spot of shopping and sightseeing. Being so close to the English border has left a legacy of castles in various states of repair, as well as some lovely Victorian country houses that hark back to the time when the Welsh valleys were one the most productive coal mining sites in the world. When the rain clears up, go to Sgwd yr Eira and walk behind the veil of the waterfall which is even more impressive after a downpour.

The Brecon Beacons National Park may look serene on the surface, but you do not have to scratch hard to discover a region rich in history including geological bowls shaped by Ice Age lakes, and medieval churches and castles. Ann’s Cottage, with its peaceful surroundings and luxurious accommodation, is the perfect place to start and end every magical day of your holiday.

Accommodation Comprises:

Ann's Bungalow has received four stars from Visit Wales, as well as the coveted Visit Wales Welcome Host Gold Award. Accommodation is all on one level. It is one of two holiday properties on Wern-y-Marchog but enjoys a great deal of privacy.

  • A dual-aspect sitting room enjoys plenty of natural light and lovely garden views during the day. At night, the inglenook fireplace with 'flame effect' stove becomes the focal point, together with the 50-inch TV with DVD player and satellite channels. The owners have thoughtfully provided a good variety of maps and local information, as well as magazines and books.
  • The open plan kitchen/diner is decorated in a traditional country style, with soft colours and fitted wooden cabinets complementing the pine dining table and chairs for six. There is an electric range master cooker set in an inglenook, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave and a good range of cooking equipment and utensils to make it simple to cook everything from toast for one to a full Sunday roast for six people.
  • A washing machine, dryer, ironing board, iron and clothes airer are kept in the utility room, where there is a separate cloakroom with toilet and handbasin.
  • All bedrooms are beautifully furnished and have beds with sprung pocket mattresses and memory foam toppers for added comfort. The addition of Egyptian cotton bed linen and blankets made from Welsh wool ensure every night is a dream.
  • The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, while the other two have a double bed and two full-sized single beds respectively.
  • A tiled bathroom features a large bath with electric shower above, toilet, handbasin and heated towel rail. There is a shaving socket and extendable shaving mirror for convenience.

Outside: Ann's Bungalow enjoys spectacular views in every direction, including Cefn Cyff and Pen Y Fan. The nearby stream and lake attract lots of local wildlife and birds. There is a large, flat lawn area with flowering borders at the front of Ann's Bungalow, enjoying far reaching views across the neighbouring fields. The rear of the property has a paved patio area with garden furniture, a gas barbecue and another well-maintained lawn area. Guests have shared use of a hot tub housed in a separate wooden cabin, and an enclosed children's play area with outdoor toys, swings, seesaw and a slide. There is parking for one car outside the bungalow, with further parking available in the courtyard. The property has a viewing point and bird feeder near a mountain stream, which is a beautiful spot to sit and soak up the silence.

Additional Information: Linen and towels are included in the price. The property has central heating and WiFi throughout. Both Asda and Tesco deliver, though guests need to ensure they are there for the delivery. Short breaks are possible out of season depending on availability. There is a discount for two people using only one bedroom. No smoking. Unfortunately no pets.
