Initial logs for wood burner included remainder available locally. Cot highchair and stairgate available on request. External utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. Enclosed lawned garden with patio garden furniture and BBQ. On road parking. No smoking. \n Opposite the majestic village church this Grade II listed building is thought to have been constructed in the mid to late 19th century. It is part of a virtually intact and coherent group of houses at the centre of the pretty and tranquil village of Myddfai. It was originally the village post office and shop as the name suggests and has been in the owner’s family since 1921.\nThe owner’s grandfather who was the postmaster and great grandfather were also the village blacksmiths and the Old Smithy can still be seen in the village identified by a horseshoe over the door. \nThe Old Post Office shop front and doorway are still there today and inside the house some of the shop shelving is still in use on the wall as a bookcase. The shop door has beautiful stained glass panels that create patterns on the walls when the evening sunlight passes through it. Outside the small post box is still in use and is set within the wall of the house. The post office was finally closed in 1988 when the owner’s grandmother was no longer well enough to run it but it has remained a cherished and charming family house and is now available for holidaymakers to enjoy and appreciate. Inside this cosy cottage there is a wood burner in the living room for homely nights or the study offers the perfect place to sit and read or families may enjoy using the games console. The attractive sun room is the place to enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. Sitting here you can take in the spectacular views of the rolling countryside beyond the large enclosed lawned garden and patio. The property complies with the Visit Wales Cyclists and Walkers Schemes. These two awards are given to properties which go that extra mile to provide excellent facilities for guests. This means The Old Post Office has somewhere you can dry outdoor clothing lock up your bikes access a water point outside to clean your muddy boots and bikes and essential for any adventure a first aid kit.\nThe village of Myddfai lies in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park and in the foothills of the Black Mountain. The Brecon Beacons National Park offers uncrowded roads to visit the historic towns and villages and of course the most spectacular scenery and opportunities for outdoor pursuits. It is also the first International Dark-Sky reserve in Wales. On a clear night in the Brecon Beacons you can see the Milky Way major constellations bright nebulas and even meteor showers enough to make anyone starry eyed. During the 13th century Myddfai was frequented by physicians and medicinal remedies were created. Over the years the stories of the Physicians of Myddfai have become bound up with the legend of Llyn y Fan Fach – the Lady of the Lake. You can learn all about this at the Myddfai Visitor Centre which is situated just a few yards from The Old Post Office. Here you will also find a fascinating craft shop and a lovely café the perfect place to relax whilst you learn about the legends.\nJust 3 miles away you will discover the ancient Carmarthenshire market town of Llandovery with a wider selection of shops cafés pubs and restaurants as well as the Heritage Centre giving an insight into the lives of the drovers who passed through the town. Visit the ruins of the 13th century Carreg Cennen Castle or the Red Kite Feeding Station at Llanddeusant where daily feeding of these amazing birds takes place in the summer. The market town of Llandeilo is not too far away and here you will discover lots of independent boutique shops and eateries the town is fast gaining a reputation as a foodies paradise. Also within easy reach are the National Trust Dolaucothi Gold Mines tours available Aberglasney Gardens and the National Botanic Garden of Wales with its great glass dome perfect for a visit at any time of year. If you fancy a day without the car the Heart of Wales train runs from Llandovery and will take you through the rugged beauty tranquil villages and picturesque Victorian spa towns that are dotted along \n " UKC335

    What a fantastic place! Amazingly equipped with everything you could need, very clean and plenty of space. Views from the garden are lovely, and it is a beautiful place to walk, cycle, run and relax. There is a shed for bikes, made life a lot easier. Great communication from the host. We had a fabulous time, we will definitely visit again.

    Another wonderful stay in The Old Post Office, our sixth visit. Really lovely village, especially if you are craving peace and quiet, with only the sound of the odd sheep and birds. Beautiful property. Lovely fully enclosed garden, which when you have dogs is essential and owner easily contactable if you need anything. Will be back again.
