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.

    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: administrator

    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: Administrator

    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.

    It's a semi-rural location on the edge of the village but with easy walking access to the pubs and shop in the village. Good centre for lovely walks in the Black Mountains and for visiting Hay on Wye

    Everything we expected, good value. Somewhat hazardous for the elderly..unexpected pillars and steps and a difficult stairway. Perhaps this should be indicated more clearly in the particulars.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are very pleased that found Caepost good value and responding to the issues with the difficult stairway, unfortunately, we cannot change this as they have been there for over 200 years and it is part of its quirkiness and charm, however, thank you for bringing this to our attention and we have now amended the cottage description to include a little about the stair case.

    Nice and comfortable cottage. It had everything we needed. And we had a lot of guests: a large variety of birds and squirrels...

    A very well equipped & situated cottage, ideal for dog owners. Caepost is a nice friendly village with an excellent co op. The bird station in front of conservatory was the highlight for me

    The cottage was in an excellent location for our plans. It was very tastefully decorated, clean and had everything that we needed. I would stay there again and would be more than happy to recommend this lovely place.
