A spacious rural retreat for families and friends offering stylish accommodation with walking and cycling routes straight from the front door through the stunning Brecon Beacons.

Enjoying a remote location in the beautiful Welsh countryside, this impressive holiday home blends original features with contemporary design. Surrounded by spectacular countryside, step out of the front door to spend your days discovering the natural beauty of the Brecon Beacons. Less than a mile from your holiday home are the stunning cascades of the Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls for a peaceful picnic beside the tumbling waters. Enjoy a nostalgic trip through the stunning landscape on the Brecon Mountain Railway (11.5 miles) or hop in the saddle for a cycle along the Taff Cycle Trail which runs past the property. The pretty village of Talybont-on-Usk (4 miles) has a choice of welcoming pubs which are well worth a visit after a long walk along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Discover the mining heritage of the South Wales Valleys with a trip to Big Pit National Coal Mining Museum (21 miles) or the Blaenavon Ironworks (19.5 miles).

Encompassed by rolling hills and towering trees, step out of your car and pause to appreciate the beauty of your surroundings. Entering the property, underfloor heating throughout creates a cosy atmosphere and the tasteful decor and use of warm wood accents makes this a relaxing environment to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. Catering for larger groups is a dream in the very well-equipped kitchen/diner with a beautiful stone floor and exposed ceiling beams. There’s plenty of storage and ample workspace to prepare hearty meals and you’ll find a range-style gas oven and hob, dishwasher and fridge in this area. Gather together around the centrally positioned dining table, that can seat up to 14 guests when fully extended, to share meals and highlights of your day. Step through to the handy utility room where you will find additional storage, a microwave, freezer and washing machine. There’s also a drying room for wet coats and boots and a separate cloakroom with a WC. Steps lead from the kitchen to the elegant sitting room with exposed brickwork and an oak-beamed ceiling. Sink into one of the plump sofas and enjoy the panoramic views across Talybont Reservoir through the huge arched windows. Light the traditional wood burner set in the feature stone fireplace for a cosy night in watching a film on the TV with DVD player or listening to music on the CD player. Get competitive with a game of pool at the pool table or indulge in a spot of stargazing through the telescope. A handmade oak staircase leads to the first floor where you will find the four indulgent bedrooms with oak beams and oak flooring throughout. The first bedroom is a generous family room with an oak-framed double bed and a single bed, ample storage and a mezzanine level with second double bed. There is also an en-suite shower room. A second family room boasts an oak-framed double bed and a single bed, with a second single bed on the mezzanine and also enjoys an en-suite shower room. The cosy twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room features white-washed brick walls and quirky circular stone windows offering fabulous views. The final bedroom is an attractive double bedroom with ample storage and an en-suite bathroom with a shower over the bath. There is also an unused mezzanine level within this room. There are a further two WCs on this floor.

Venturing outside, there is a private terrace with a seating area with a wooden table, benches and a BBQ for a relaxed evening meal as the sun sets across the mountains.

Abercynafon farm was amazing. Brilliantly fitted out with everything you need. Beautiful location in a perfect spot. A very relaxing break but the children were happy as well.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
