The lovely ’Y Bwthyn Bach’ (The Little Cottage) is a late 19th century miners cottage sitting in a quiet row, close to The Taff River, 15 miles north of Cardiff and 15 miles south of The Brecon Beacons. With a rear balcony that boasts spectacular, panoramic views, this little gem has been lovingly restored throughout, with traditional décor and many original features.
The charming, original flagstone flooring in the hallway leads on to the original wooden staircase up to the first floor. Just off the hallway is the open plan yet cosy living/dining room where you’ll be instantly drawn towards the spectacular views of the Taff Valley from the balcony. The room is divided into two areas, the balcony end has a dining table perfect for enjoying a meal together or playing board games (you’ll find some games in the cupboard). The living room end is comfortable and cosy, the perfect place to relax and unwind. For your entertainment, there’s a 19” TV, with the 5 main channels plus a few extra; a shelf with a good selection of books to choose from; Bluetooth speakers and Free WiFi.
There’s a traditional stone staircase, which is steep, leading down to the lower ground floor, where you’ll find the kitchen which is fully equipped with everything you need, including basic dry goods in the pantry. The door from the kitchen leads out to the pretty garden and a decked area, where you can sit out and take in those spectacular sunsets. Back inside, and up to the ground floor hallway, with stairs leading up to the bedrooms and bathroom. Both bedrooms are decorated with pretty, yet simple décor, and the bathroom is cosy and has a relaxing feel, so why not enjoy a relaxing soak!
Quakers Yard is a quaint little hamlet served by some handy amenities, including a village store, Chinese takeaway, and a couple of pubs. Nelson, the nearest town, is 1 mile away, with a shop, chemist, a pizza takeaway, the best chip shop around and pubs etc. You can join The Taff Trail just 550 yards (down a steep path) from Y Bwthyn Bach, or just drive and park up over the bridge. The Trail is a more than 50 mile walking trail spanning from Brecon to Cardiff.
The local valleys are full of history and sites to visit during your stay. Some nearby favourites include Llancaiach Fawr Manor, a living history museum with beautiful gardens. The National Lido of Pontypridd, restored to its 1920’s glory, is an outdoor lido which is definitely worth a dip, if you can secure a ticket. Castell Coch, a fairytale castle with lovely walking trails surrounding it, Cyfarthfa Castle Museum and Art Gallery, which is set in 160 acres of parkland and even has a model railway, or you could visit the real thing at Brecon Mountain Railway, a vintage steam train with picturesque stops in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Whether it’s scenic walks, hikes or bike rides, there’s plenty of idyllic spots to visit, from country parks and mountains to waterfalls and forest trails. Traditional towns and villages to give you a real taste of the valleys, you can even get to the capital city of Cardiff either on the train from Abercynon, or 45 minutes by car!
