    Caepost sleeping up to 6 guests

    This 200-year-old, charming, detached former toll cottage set within the Brecon Beacons National Park has retained many of its period features.
    This 200-year-old, charming, detached former toll cottage set within the Brecon Beacons National Park has retained many of its period features. Caepost cottage sympathetically mixes the old with the new, the larger than average living/dining room with pillars, stone walls, wood burning stove, original oak beams and wooden shuttered windows contrasting perfectly with the generous contemporary kitchen and sun-room and a quirky, dogleg, oak staircase leading to the first floor. It is conveniently situated next to the quiet B4560 and perfectly placed on the edge of Talgarth. Comfortably furnished with every convenience to make your stay one to remember. Good mobile phone signals, Bluetooth stereo/CD in the living room with Wi-Fi throughout and bedside radio-USB-iPhone chargers in all of the bedrooms.
    Peacefully situated within ½ an acre of wooded, dog friendly and private enclosed gardens, settle on the comfortable garden furniture on the raised decking or on the sofa in the sun room with a glass of wine or a cup of tea, taking in the wonderful views over the local fields and Black Mountains, especially at sunset. There is an abundance of wildlife - an ornithologist’s dream - buzzards, red kites and woodpeckers are regular visitors, with many of our guests having commented and enjoyed the bird feeding station outside the sun room.
    Relax, unwind or just go wild. Caepost is close to the market town of Brecon, Crickhowell, Hay-on-Wye and Llangorse Lake, providing an ideal holiday base for visitors wishing to explore both the Black Mountains and the eastern end of the Brecon Beacons. With the Wye Valley to the north and the Usk Valley to the east, this area is home to many activities for all ages and abilities including walking, cycling, fishing, gliding, canoeing, mountain biking and horse riding.
    The Brecon Beacons has been awarded the International Dark Sky Reserve status making it the first in Wales. So if it’s the stars you are after, just sit on the garden’s raised decking or drive to Llangorse Lake, 1 of 10 recommended spots and just 5 minutes from the cottage and just stargaze. The owner is a Brecon Beacons Ambassador so let him help with your itinerary if you require any help.
    There are several lovely cycle routes, bridle paths, river walks and footpaths that can be accessed from the cottage. A heated swimming pool can be found 1 mile away on a local campsite that is open to the public during the summer season. A ¼-mile walk into Talgarth and you will find the tourist information office, cattle market and many award-winning shops, supplying locally produced food, butchers, delicatessen, supermarket, restaurants, cafés, fish and chip shop and 4 dog friendly pubs, the nearest being 300 yards.
    The cottage was built in 1807 and is on the old road into Talgarth, where a tramway was constructed next to the cottage and tolls were taken from the horse draw drays that would pass by. Later on in around 1850 a railway was built that runs through the garden, but this was closed in the Beaching cuts of the 1960’s, there are still remnants of that time, including railway sleepers and rail line concrete pads, that have been incorporated into the landscaping around the cottage. The original oak beams are still in place and the remnants of the original bread oven can still be seen in the fire place, the owner at one time used to make bread and serve customers through a tiny window in the gable end of the house.

    nicola – 27 May 2018
    "Great cottage with a lot interest, views and great bird/squirrel watching beat the TV any day! The games room needed a little updating as the equipment well used we didnt use them in the end but plenty of other board games to occupy us. Cleanliness was OK some areas could be cleaner i.e marks on walls and outside grounds need attending, but on the whole a very comfortable well equipped cottage.The road noise could be a little off putting, but we soon got used to it.If we are coming to the area we would use the cottage again."
    Greg – 27 May 2018
    "We have been married almost 50 years and this was our first visit EVER to Wales. We will return! As well as the weather which was fabulous for our stay, Caepost was a delight. It was very well appointed, clean, welcoming, some nice quirky personal touches, an excellent place to relax, and only five minutes walk into the village. The view from the conservatory which faces West, one can watch the setting sun plus watch the wide variety of birds and wildlife feeding from the multitude of feeders. There are two other outside sitting areas which we made good use of after exploring the area. This lead us to our only 'complaint'.............the wine glasses are too big! Two glasses each and the bottle is empty! I will finalise this by saying "Highly Recommended""
    Chris – 25 Apr 2018
    "This was a return visit after a gap year. A wonderful stay in a very comfortable and well equipped property. The sun room with its views of the multiple bird feeding stations makes for a lovely early morning place to be. Good outside seating areas and barbecue. It is a pleasant 5 minute walk from the centre of Talgarth and in easy car distance of some of the best scenery and walks in the Beacons"
    Dawn – 16 Apr 2018
    "The cottage was clean and well equipped. In a good location with plenty of parking. Lovely scenery and plenty of activities to do in the area."
    DEREK – 3 Apr 2018
    "We all enjoyed our holiday at Caepost, which is a very comfortable cottage with relaxing views of wildlife.The cottage is well positioned on the edge of Talgarth and close to the Brecons.The spiral stairs would not suit everyone but was no problem to us, in fact looked more daunting than they actually were.We are thinking of coming back to stay at Caepost when we visit the Brecons again.Brian and Amanda were very helpful and friendly which helped make our holiday an enjoyable experience."
    David – 17 Mar 2018
    "Really homely cottage which was warm, clean and comfortable. A great location to explore the Brecon Beacons. We enjoyed watching the birds and seeing the lambs in the field next door. We took our Labrador and it was very pet friendly (downstairs). The stairs are steep and you need to take care. Talgarth has a few essential shops but the highlight was the Strand who deliver a remarkable range of quality meals at very cheap prices. Just what you need after a good walk."
    Mr Sheriden – 7 Mar 2018
    "We had a fantastic time, a great place for relaxing and watching the birds. Talgarth is a pretty village with plenty of walks and perfectly situated to explore the Brecon Beacons. The cottage itself is a great size and has all the amenities to enjoy our holiday."
    Jonathan – 20 Feb 2018
    "Outstanding accommodation with all the character and mod cons required."
