Tir Cue is the nearest Airbnb cottage to the Central Brecon Beacons. A unique, inspirational and peaceful haven surrounded by farmland within the National Park, it's only 10 minutes walk from the wild open spaces of the Central Beacons Parkland, and around 4 kilometres from the summit of Pen Y Fan, the highest mountain in the South Wales.
Tir cue is cradled in a breathtaking landscape, with the Central Beacons on it's doorstep and spectacular views for miles around, it's ideally placed for walks in the Brecon Beacons. Follow the ancient path that leads from the cottage between meadows of wild flowers and woodland full of birdlife, and in 10 minutes you're in the open space of the central park from where you can hike to the peaks of the Central Beacons and be there in a couple of hours, or take a gentler, less traveled ramble along the valley bottom following the mountain streams through woodland and grassland to secluded waterfalls perfect for swimming and secret picnics.
The Cottage was built over 250 years ago using local stone and oak and further developed during the Napoleonic - Peninsular wars of 1807-14, responding to the high demand for wool used in military uniforms, and meat for soldiers. 'Tir' means 'Place' and 'Cue' is a shoe for cattle. Tir Cue, was where the protective cowshoe was fitted before the harsh trek over the beacons and beyond to the docks of Cardiff.
The farm appears on the first ordnance survey conducted in 1806, and records go back to when Thomas Evans was born in there in 1761 - His descendants lived here until 1958, when it was abandoned and lay neglected until 1973.
Though remote, Tir Cue is easy to get to, an hours drive from the Severn Bridge, via Chepstow, Usk and Abergavenny. 35 miles from the M4 motorway at Cardiff, via Merthyr Tydfil, about the same from Newport, via Abergavenny, with motorways and dual carriage roads reaching to within 20 miles, it's any easy 3.5 hour drive from London.
