Holiday Cottages in the Brecon Beacons & Black Mountains

It's just about decent to talk about Christmas now - with only 6 weeks to go. If you've booked your festive trip, here are some ideas for what to do. If you haven't, let us tempt you! The Royal Welsh Winter Show (30 November- 1 December) is an agricultural (and everything) show which is great for last minute Christmas shopping. Hay Festival Winter Weekend is at Hay Castle and has loads for all the family (27-29 November). (Nearby Meeting House and Meeting House Granary are still free for the weekend!) On 13 December, is the wonderful Abergavenny Christmas Food and Drink Fair. I love the National Botanic Garden of Wales any time of year, but it's magical at Christmastime.

A few of our cottages are now taking short breaks for Christmas and new year. Give us a call in the office on 01874 676446 to book. The Vale sleeps 22 in 6 neighbouring cottages, with plenty of room for everyone to eat, drink and be merry together, and space to get away from each other... There's a swimming pool too! At just £2500 for 22 people for a short break, it's a cracker!

We will of course send you our famous and coveted Exclusive Map before your trip here - recommending our favourite eateries, adventures and activities, with some brilliant offers and discounts.

If you can't decide where or when to come, or which cottage to go to, give us a call, as we know the cottages inside out.
