    About New York

    This romantic, dog-friendly cottage for two sits quietly between the Brecon Beacons National Park and the glorious expanse of uninterrupted wilderness, commonly known as the Cambrian Mountains.

    • Dating back to 1854 she is the oldest member of a small, but magnificent courtyard of 19th Century barn conversions. Guests will find it hard not to fall in love with the quirky charm and unperturbed tranquility of this enchanting location in South Wales.
    • The cottage has a unique array of stained glass windows, salvaged by the original artist owner. Enjoy open plan living in the large downstairs space with partial double-height ceiling and log burner. Curl up on the window seat with a good book and bask in the sunshine that pours through on sunny afternoons.
    • The property is brimming with character from the handmade kitchen with stunning beech worktops, - crafted from a locally felled tree - plus a butler's sink and dual fuel cooker. Enjoy wooden floors, gorgeous fabrics and a hallmark luxury bathroom complete with double-ended slipper bath and wine shelf.
    • Upstairs, there is a large mezzanine bedroom with characterful beams and magnificent views across the mountains, plus a 3000 pocket sprung king mattress and luxury linens for a cosy nights sleep.
    • Ducking beneath the low lying beams takes you to a lovely veranda with tranquil views over the small garden, apple tree, and gorgeous surrounding hills. At night enjoy a glass of fizz or a cup of cocoa and gawk at the sparkly starscapes of this ultra-dark location.
    • Why New York?
      There used to be a cottage at the top of the hill called New York and another in the village called Pennsylvania. There was a saying that Cilycwm is 'only as big as New York to Pennsylvania'. A local historian friend encouraged the owners to preserve the history and keep the name, so they did!
