The Old Sunday School Room next to the River Hydfer is a lovely cottage in the Brecon Beacons. It is in the centre of the tiny hamlet of Traianglas, just over 2 miles from the village of Trecastle, to the quieter West of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Perfect for couples or families, you’ll enjoy staying in a traditional Victorian building that has been renovated sympathetically to include all mod cons. The upstairs is where the living accommodation is, making the most of the light and views across fields and hills. The bedrooms downstairs have replaced what was originally a stable where visiting clergy would tie their horses up.

Trecastle has 2 pubs. The Three Horse Shoes is a family friendly pub perfect for a well earned pint after a hearty walk. Or enjoy a bar meal at the Castle Coaching Inn just across the road.

While in Trecastle it is worth having a look at the 2 antiques centres, Trecastle Antiques and Vicarage Row Antiques.

The cottage is an ideal base for a number of activities. The Usk Reservoir, a short drive away, is an excellent fishing centre. There are numerous walking and cycling routes on the doorstep too. The market town of Brecon, famous for its Summer Jazz Festival is only 12 miles away in one direction.  11 miles in the other is Llandovery, famous for its history of droving.
