If youre looking for the ultimate retreat, off the beaten track in a secluded valley within the stunning Black Mountains, look no further. Blaencwm is a luxurious and beautifully furnished cottage, complete with a wood fired hot tub where you can relax in breathtaking natural surroundings and get away from it all.
Boasting three large bedrooms, two bathrooms, two open fires, a traditional Aga, luxury linen, deep feather down filled duvets, toiletries from REN Skincare, fresh flowers, Wi-Fi throughout, two cast iron baths and a shower head borrowed from the Savoy Hotel, London, this really is a unique and unforgettable hideaway. And these indulgent interiors contrast perfectly with the stunning wilderness of the surrounding landscape. Leave the noise and light pollution of the daily grind behind and let yourself be pampered.
If you can bear to leave the luxury of your cottage, you have some wonderful places on your doorstep, with Hay on Wye, the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons to name but a few. Outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking and horse riding are ten a penny and within easy reach you can also find yourself in ancient castles and wonderful gardens. If you dont want to be left to your own devices, we can provide you with chefs, butler services, local produce, grocery shopping, wine and drinks, a washing up service, a chauffeur or taxi service, a child minder, stabling and photographers. We can also organise a whole host of local activities, from guided walks and foraging to fishing, canoeing and clay pigeon shooting.
The approach is suitably exciting: a narrow track winds its way into the little cwm from the Mountain Road through fields of ponies and sheep. Low slung sports cars are not recommended and during bad weather conditions in the winter we can help you there in our 4×4. Please see the website for detailed driving directions. Be warned that using a Satnav is not reliable and the postcode will take you to the wrong location!

The cottage has a sheep proof garden of about an acre, with three terraces and outdoor furniture for your use. The lawns are cut regularly and we manage the beds as regularly as required. The cottage is detached from any other buildings and has no immediate neighbours. There is a small stream and a very beautiful waterfall directly beside the property - ideal for exploring. You can access the larger South West facing terrace from the dining room. This is a perfect spot for lazy summer evenings and barbecues. Both areas have outdoor tables and chairs.

During your stay you can enjoy fresh eggs from our hens, seasonal produce from the estate and bread from our local partisan bakery. We can organize drop off meals for you to heat up and serve or serviced lunches and dinners with as many courses as you desire. We can provide you with BBQ’s, packed lunches or picnic baskets to be delivered to a spot of your choice on the hill by a member of staff.
