This beautiful 17th century historic house is Grade II* listed and regarded as one of the best examples of an oak timber frame house in the whole of Mid Wales.
Talgarth is a stunning cottage bursting with character and original features yet with some modern aspects, such as a newly fitted bathroom with large walk-in shower, roll top baths (three of them!), WiFi and flatscreen TVs. Furnished and decorated with a tasteful combination of antiques and stylish furnishings, the cottage sleeps eight guests in four bedrooms.
The large welcoming kitchen has an oil-fired Aga in the inglenook fireplace (operational in the winter only). Please note the AGA cooker is vintage 1952 and not thermostatically controlled. This means it may not get as hot as a modern oven and may be more suited to an experienced AGA user than a novice. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke oak units, fridge, electric cooker, dishwasher, microwave, Welsh dresser and a breakfast table and chairs for six. A separate utility room houses a washing machine and freezer. The magnificent triple aspect drawing room has a flatscreen TV, DVD player, antique furniture, original beams and a large open fire. There is a separate library with sofas, armchairs, a log burning stove in the inglenook fireplace, flatscreen TV and plenty of books. The atmospheric dining room has a dining table and chairs to seat eight.
Upstairs are four large bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which are en suite. On the first floor is a master bedroom with a king size bed, sofa and some antique furniture; the en suite bathroom has oak panelling, rolltop bath, basin and WC. Also on the first floor is a family suite: a double bedroom and a twin bedroom; these are separate rooms, but have an interconnecting door if required by families with small children. The newly-fitted family bathroom has a rolltop bath, large walk-in shower, basin and WC. The fourth bedroom is on the second floor - a double bedroom with some restricted headroom and oak door leading to an en suite bathroom with bath, washbasin and WC.
The property is set in generous grounds, which are fully enclosed, comprising a large gravelled courtyard with plenty of off-road parking, a large lawn with flower borders and a separate cottage garden packed with colour in the summer months. To the front of the property is an authentic knot garden, which provides a perfect setting for the house. There are two barbecues for guests to use (bring your own charcoal) and garden furniture. Guests at Talgarth can also enjoy use of a separate garden room located across the courtyard from the main house. This has sofas, seating, a TV for video and DVDs only, and a dart board. This room is not heated and is intended for summer use. Talgarth is on the corner of two quiet lanes: both are no-through roads, with little passing traffic. The village of Trefeglwys, with its pretty church and a pub which serves food, is within easy walking distance.

A delight. I love old houses and this was fantastic. Ideal with dogs as secure enclosed large garden and courtyard. Easy base for both beaches and walks such as Cader Idris. Will be returning to this area next year.Mrs Hill - 31st August 2016
Talgarth is an amazing place - it truly is like staying in a piece of history. I can honestly say none of us have ever stayed anywhere like it before. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring all its interesting nooks and crannies! Wales has looked stunning this week and obviously the weather has enhanced this enormously.Sue and Richard T - 26th September 2015
Thank you so much for letting us stay at beautiful Talgarth! We have enjoyed every moment and so have the dogs - we have walked around Hafren Forest with them and got some lovely photographs and they have loved this holiday. We will have lovely memories - Talgarth is so peaceful and relaxing and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it! Thank you once again.The Richardson Family - 19th September 2015

Thank you, we had an enjoyable time and it was a treat to stay somewhere so different!Lorraine S - 9th July 2014
We've had a wonderful time at Talgarth. It's a great family home with space for all to do their own thing or to congregate around the kitchen table. Many thanksSusan P - 24th May 2014
This is without a doubt the most beautifully presented, well-equipped holiday homes we have stayed in. We have loved every minute. Thank you so much for allowing dogs - we have a retired racing greyhound and days like today when we walked up to the source of the Severn and watching her sheer joy in being alive are what it's all about for us (and she loves the fire!). It has been the perfect week. Thank you.Tim - 16th November 2013
It's a very special and well equipped house with lovely gardens. Thank you again - it was a pleasure to realize a booking with your company.Gunter - 17th August 2013
Thank you for a wonderful holiday in a wonderful house!The Woodman family - 16th July 2013
Thank you for a wonderful holiday in a wonderful house!Woodman family - 16th July 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thought that the area was outstandingly beautiful and I am sure we will be back in the not too distant future.Davies Family - 2nd July 2013
We very much enjoyed our stay at Talgarth. It was a pleasure to stay in such a beautiful house.Smith Family - 1st April 2013
The house has a lovely feel with enough room for all 6 of us to spread out. It is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The collection of books was fascinating. The dogs had ample room to chase each other in the courtyard and gardens while we were confident that they could not escape. The location was also ideal, we were able to take the dogs for walks directly from the house and also take them farther afield in cars. We visited Welshpool, Machynlleth and, of course, Llanidloes and Caersws.Davies Family - 1st February 2013
