Set high in the foothills of the Black Mountains, this open-plan cabin is simply perfect for couples that have an appetite for adventure. The farm is situated within Craswall on the Herefordshire/Wales border, within the Black Mountains on the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Here, you can leave the car behind and head into the Black Mountains, climb onto the Cat’s Back or join the Offa’s Dyke Path where you can walk out to the Hay Bluff and Twmpa, or enjoy the ruins of Llanthony Priory. There is also canoeing, pony trekking, and climbing available within the park. Also, within easy reach is the vibrant market town of Hay-on-Wye (4 miles). Enjoy the views as you climb up across the farmland towards the cabin that backs onto acres of mature woodland.

The cabin is charmingly simple, yet well-equipped, offering open-plan living with a contemporary style and far-reaching views across the valley. The living space has been configured to offer a lounge area with a comfortable sofa and TV, and a small kitchen area with everything you will need for creating a simple supper. A cosy double bed and shower room with shower and WC complete the accommodation.

From the living space you can open the patio doors onto a raised terrace with a table and chairs, there is a fire pit that you are free to use along with 300 acres of wood and farmland that you are welcome to explore. There is allocated parking for one car in the farmyard, along with a wheelbarrow to help with your luggage on the 100-metre path to the cabin.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
