This rustic, renovated barn affords a great location close to the market town of Brecon and the scenic beauty of the Brecon Beacons. This is the perfect retreat for families and friends.

Set on a working farm, surrounded by a peaceful natural landscape, this country-style cottage offers a thoroughly relaxing stay in Powys. If you love to gallop through the countryside you’ll be thrilled to find bridle trails from the front door, and stabling on site. Whether you want to explore by foot, hoof, or bike, the fresh air and natural surroundings of the Welsh countryside is the place to be. You’re within 5 miles of shops, pubs, and restaurants, and 14 miles from the market town of Talgarth - the ‘jewel of the Black Mountains’.

Step inside this cosy family-friendly retreat which has an open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area which harmonise beautifully with a traditional beamed ceiling and exposed brickwork. Settle into squishy seating by the warmth of the wood burner after a day out exploring the Brecon Beacons. Cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen and feast around the dining table. Refresh muddy gear in the convenient shared utility. When night falls, choose the double bed downstairs or head up the cottage-style stairs to the remaining beds in the pretty open-plan loft space. Summer is the time to feast outside with a BBQ in the enclosed garden where children can run about while grown-ups relax. Or stroll from the garden towards country meadows which lead to a sparkling stream and woodland.

You’re perfectly placed to explore the spectacular Brecon Beacons National Park. Start in the market town of Brecon (5 miles) where you’ll be inspired by the wonderful array of independent shops, eateries, and a 1930s-style cinema. Cycle the canal towpath towards the Theatr Brycheiniog where you’ll find an inspiring community arts centre. Further afield, take a challenging group hike to the summit of Pen y Fan (11 miles) and soak up the views of the surrounding landscape.

Lovely rural cottage. Fantastic location. Really lovely host family. A real paradise for kids who love an outdoor adventure and outdoor play. Our 9, 12 and 14 year old spent hours in the stream and on the tree swings. It has the makings of a very chilled out holiday. Great place if you just want to get away from the busy-ness of life.

We spent a lovely week at this gorgeous little cottage. It was just perfect for us and we were made very welcome by the owners. Our children loved the beautiful garden with swings and the steps down to the stream. They also loved the ladder stairs up to their rooms! We had some lovely walks which were suggested on paperwork left in the cottage. We Read morereally hope to return here again in the future. Hide

Very cosy, very comfy cottage in a gorgeous location. We were warm and comfortable all week (despite some frosty nights) and the kids adored the two loft-style bedrooms up the ladder steps. They also spent many happy hours exploring the woods and stream behind the house. The hosts were so kind and welcoming.

I loved staying at Byres Cottage. It is in a stunning location, the cottage has everything you could want and the hosts are lovely. Margaret gave us information about local walks we could try and provided maps if we wanted to try further afield.
