Description

Enjoy outdoor activities and exploration from this holiday property, located on the outskirts of the market town of Talgarth, an all year round destination.

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 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 great for us for a week at the Hay Festival. Weather was so good we actually hardly spent any time at the cottage other than sleeping and breakfast - had it rained I am sure we would have made better use of it - but we are not complaining!

    What a beautiful place, everything you could need in this really cosy home from home. The garden is a delight and being able to sit in the sun after a good days walking and watch the Red Kites circling above was fantastic. We would recommend The Bridgend pub for a good meal with friendly service.

    Family of 5 adults: A superb cottage very well equipped with everything one could want for a perfect holiday. It feels pleasantly secluded but with just a 5 minute walk to the centre of Talgarth and its small Co-op store. The garden is perfect for sitting and admiring the sunsets and view across the valley to the hills. The sun room is ideal for sitting in the warm watching the wildlife in the garden and reading and planning walks. Talgarth seemed in a perfect position for getting to a range of different country for walking with a minimum of driving. We are all very keen to return having only scratched the surface of the Brecon Beacons and can think of nowhere better to return to than Caepost.

    A beautiful cottage with everything you need. So wonderful to watch the birds and the cottage had a lot of character. The only reason I wouldn't stay here again is the location. It is very handy to get to the town and there is a lot to do within the area so that is excellent but I really wanted to be in the valleys and not on a main road overlooking houses (to the right if standing in the garden) so for that reason alone I wouldn't come back. This doesn't mean I wouldn't recommend the place though, this is just my personal preference for silence and green, do not be put off by this review.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to complete the Reevoo and we are pleased that you enjoyed the wildlife and character of Caepost which it has in abundance. We are a little confused about being ‘overlooked’ as we are the last cottage out of the town, our nearest neighbour is 50 yards away and we are not overlooked at all, as can be seen by our photographs. The cottage is an old toll house and is located on the quiet rural B4560 taking mainly local farm traffic.

    Our stay at the Caepost was amazing. Everything we wanted and needed. Brian was very helpful and kept us updated about our arrival. The booklet provided about the surrounding area and restaurants were really helpful. We never lost a wink of sleep here very comfortable and a home from home with all the extras you would necessarily think of, being on a main road it was very quiet and never disturbed us at all. We will DEFINITELY stay here again and planning another trip already.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Wow, thank you so much for your wonderful Reevoo, we really appreciate your warm comments as we do put a lot of effort to make our guests stay a memorable one and we look forward to seeing you again at Caepost, I believe the next years dates are out soon, don’t miss out!

    Could not fault the accomodation, property kept to a very high standard. The only thing we did not like was the 5 different bins in the kitchen, to remember what goes in what bin. We know it is not the owners, but the local authority who stipulate they want the rubbish in different categories for recycling, but it just spoiled it.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for giving us top marks out of 10. We are glad that Caepost lived up to your expectations, however, we are really sorry that the recycling spoilt it for you. The recycling is the bane of our life and as you pointed out the local authority does not make it easy for us. Thank you for your feedback and following your comments we have clearly labelled the recycling bins in the kitchen and I hope this makes it a little easier for all our guests.

    Absolutely lovely cottage. It's so welcoming and relaxing. If you're looking for a base for local walks you cannot go wrong here. You have to purchase the bird food and watch them feed, it's mesmerising. Will definitely return.

    Over the years we have stayed at numerous holiday cottages, I have to say this was the best, the grounds and gardens were ideal and safe for our 2 small dogs to wander. We will be booking again for next year. Needless to say recommendation is a must.

    Caepost was the best cottage we have ever stayed in . It was just the two of us for a chilled few days and it was just that. The only slight disappointment was Talgarth itself. It didn't have the facilities open that was advertised. I know we were out of season but just be aware.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for the fantastic Reevoo and marking us 10 out of 10, Caepost is a great bolt hole anytime of the year to ‘chill out’. We are so sorry that you were disappointed about the local facilities not being open but can we just confirm that Talgarth is a tourist market town and does not shut out of season, it has a cattle market during the week and facilities will be open for the farmers. I do believe that coincidentally the Tower and Bridgend public houses did close during your stay for refurbishment and personal holidays but are now fully open. May I remind all guests that the Strand and famous Bakers Table at the Mill cafés are open all year round and there are 4 pubs and a chip shop serving food, I believe another café is due open in the summer and finally all the local shops i.e. butchers, bakers and local supermarkets are open as usual.
