There are the most wonderful views from the south facing decked veranda and as the name suggests, this cottage would be ideal for the keen artist. There are excellent walks straight from the cottage along various footpaths through Woodland Trust managed land. Access to Artist's View is via some wooden steps to the terrace. Brecon is just 2 miles away providing a great selection of restaurants, a cinema, shops and museums to explore.

Stunning inside and out

The glorious views can be appreciated from the veranda on a sunny day or from the fireside sofa in the sitting room when the weather dictates.

Unique artist's facilities
The cottage's veranda makes the perfect location for visitors to sit and sketch or paint the view. The seasons and the Welsh weather will provide an ever-changing landscape.
Artist's View sits right in the heart of a very special landscape. Make sure that you visit Pen-y-Crug whilst in the area. This impressive hill fort offers a wonderful insight into the struggles of early Welsh people to defend their lands and the views from the site are breathtaking. Access is also relatively easy so even the least keen walker can take in the history and the surroundings without too much effort.
Pwllgloyw (Village with pub) 2 miles, Brecon 2 miles.

Many thanks for the opportunity to give some feedback. Suffice to say that our recent holiday was absolutely fantastic. The most restful, enjoyable holiday we’ve had – since forever! The actual accommodation was superb. Everything we needed was provided. It was spotlessly clean and well laid out. The veranda was the best part and we spent every evening out there just admiring the view. While we were quietly isolated, the shops were just up the road. Plenty to do and see in this lovely part of Wales without having to drive too far.
Without question we’ll be back.
I’d also like to say that the service provided by Brecon Holiday Cottages was brilliant. Friendly, informative and made the whole experience seamless.-
We had an absolutely fantastic time thank you and were amazed at the cottage, quality of the premises and general facilities. It was a real treat to stay somewhere so lovely and with such fantastic surroundings. The views were awesome and being able to see Red Kites flying over the fields each morning was spectacular.
We hope to visit the cottage again at some point.
Thank you for the excellent service, pleasant staff and value for money.
We stayed for a week in Artists View Cottage and had a wonderful stay, it was spotless and we had everything we needed. Very peaceful and quiet we would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing break.-
