Situated as it is at the edge of The Beacons and Waterfall Country, Yr Hen Stabl is an ideal base for walkers and nature lovers. Right on our doorstep is the Cwm Gwrelych Heritage Trail, a site of national geological importance. We are proud to say that it is called 'Merfyn's Walk' and the information points relate Merfyn's childhood spent playing and exploring in the area.

We have just enjoyed a stunning stay. The cottage was home from home and so comfortable and beautifully presented. The owner was very welcoming and so kind to our children. We had great fun exploring the area and would highly recommend it!

Management response:

Thank you so much Kerry. I really appreciate your kind words. Margaret
