The Flat is not really suitable for very young children due to the staircase - but from 10 years old should be fine. Ask for details. Parties are not allowed and if noise could be kept to a minimum after 10pm will be appreciated. Sorry No Smoking, No pets.

About the neighbourhood
Cantref is within the Brecon Beacons National Park where there are many square miles of unspoiled countryside. There are local pubs and restaurants, takeaways etc. offering food to suit all budgets. Plenty of choice of outdoor activities - be kayaking, sailing, hill walking, cycling etc. Cantref House is located just 1 mile from the Taff Trail National Cycle route.
Getting around
Ideally its best to have a car - but there are various bus routes and trains to Abergavenny or Merthyr Tydfil which are both 20 miles away. Walks from the doorstep are in plentiful. You can walk to the village (Llanfrynach) about 1 mile or into Brecon - about 4 miles.
