Our cosy two bedroom cottage available for short break and weekly self-catering holiday hire is set in the historic and beautiful Goytre Wharf adjacent to the Mon & Brec Canal and within the Brecon Beacon National Park.
It has easy access to the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and Usk Valley. You can access the canal towpath to walk or cyclebehind the cottage.
At a glance: Aqueduct Cottage has two bedrooms, full kitchen facilities, bathrooms with shower, TV with freeview, heating throughout and free Wi-Fi.
The cottage / wharf along with the adjacent lime kilns were built in the early 1800’s with the purpose of carrying on the trade in coal and lime. A weighing machine and crane were installed with stables and workshops built too as the site developed.
Goytre Wharf is located at the top of the lime kilns, adjacent to the cottage so it’s likely that materials were brought to them by water.
