Full description

Brynhyfryd is situated on the edge of Talybont village in the wonderful Usk Valley within the
Brecon Beacons National Park. The land borders the Brecon Canal from where it gets its historic connections.
It is approached by a private drive leading past the historic Lime Kilns to the main house and beyond to a range of stables and outbuildings to compliment the 9 Acres of land in which it stands.

The Detached House probably dates from the third quarter of the 19th Century but the earlier attached range to the left may represent the original farmhouse. The Lime Kilns date from early 1800s when the canal was used as a wharf for transporting lime brought along the Brynoer tram road from the lime quarries on the southern side of the Beacons Mountains.

The medium size possibly industrialists house was probably built around the time of the arrival of the railways in 1860/1870. Over the subsequent years it has been used as a successful Bed & Breakfast as well as a small farm and pony stud, and has a useful range of stables and a more recent purpose built agricultural barn and stables for that purpose.

The house retains many of its original features including some fine Victorian fireplaces, coved ceilings, panelled doors and wooden window shutters, and has a particularly impressive hallway and staircase.

It will require upgrading internally to modern day requirements, but lends itself to become a fine country residence in a stunning location.
