Get back to nature at this eco-friendly cottage, 2 miles from Brecon. Combining sustainable features like heat pumps and green electricity with entertainment features like books, jigsaw puzzles and even a piano, this peaceful property offers something different for two couples or a small family looking for fun and adventure in the Brecon Beacons. As well as being close to shops and pubs, it’s only half a mile from one of the most picturesque routes up Pen y Fan, the highest peak in South Wales.

Accessed down a narrow lane, the property has rustic touches throughout, with exposed brickwork and wooden beams adding to the charm. The light open-plan living space looks out to the mountains through the patio doors, so you can certainly dine with a view here. When you want to unwind, sink into the cosy sofas, fire up the wood burner and tuck into some home-baked goodies provided by the owner. A double bedroom and walk-in shower room are on the ground floor, while the king-size master bedroom with en-suite bathroom is upstairs. Outside, listen to the calming sounds of the stream as it trickles alongside the garden. If you have children with you, they’re welcome to use the trampoline and play area in the owner’s garden.

The cottage was lovely, just right for the 3 of us. The kitchen was well equipped, the log fire & under floor kept us plenty warm enough, during a chilly November week. The owners are lovely & friendly, happy to help if we had any questions & the brownies & fresh bread which were part of the welcome pack were delicious. We would definitely go back Read moreif we get a chance. Hide

The rustic cottage is set right in the national park very close to pen-y-fan. Road leading to the cottage can be a little scary especially meeting something coming the other way.

Lovely cottage in quiet location (approached by narrow lanes with passing places) but not too far from Brecon. Owners friendly and welcome pack of freshly baked bread and home made brownies was a treat. Good centre for the area.
