Property code: 88748

Enjoying a peaceful location within a private country estate set within the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this property is just 6 miles west of the bustling market town of Brecon, well known for its famous jazz festival, independent shops and cafes, history, military connections and, of course, the magnificent cathedral. The area is perfect for outdoor pursuits too; you can follow the many waymarked paths along with the rivers and canals, countryside, and mountain ranges. Hire a rowing boat, kayak or pedalo at Llangorse Lake, the largest natural lake in South Wales. Travel underground at the National Showcaves Centre or, for the more easy-going guests, there are some lovely market towns such as Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell and Builth Wells all within easy reach.

 This unique home is set within the grounds of a private estate where guests are free to explore the riverbanks of the River Usk and wild meadows. The lodge stands alone at the head of the estate offering a traditional storm porch where you can take a seat whilst removing muddy boots after a day of exploring. Step on through the large oak door into a cosy lounge area that is warmed with a wood burner; here, you can relax and enjoy a chapter of a good book or a favourite film on the TV. From here, you have access to a bespoke fitted kitchen with an area to dine – a light and contemporary space finished with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The dining space is perfect for two, along with views and a rear door onto the enclosed gardens. There is access from the kitchen down step to a spacious bathroom where you can relax and soak in the deep bath with garden views; there is also a separate shower and WC. When the day is done, head to the king-size bedroom with a king-size zip-and-link bed that can be made into twin beds on request when booking.

Outside, there is an enclosed garden with a table and chairs and a charcoal BBQ, as well as a well-stocked herb garden with herbs for the chefs amongst you. Guests will also have access to a stretch of the River Usk for wild swimming, fly fishing (guests to supply a rod licence), an all-weather tennis court and a wild meadow walk. Guests can also take a tour of the estate and local produce by arrangement with the owner. There is storage for bikes and allocated parking for two cars.

Abercamlais Lodge is a real gem. We had a lovely short break there. It's cozy and we loved it's quirkiness and historic charm. Andrea could not have been more welcoming, and we had free access to all the surrounding fields, down to the beautiful river Usk. Very dog friendly.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
