  • Historic country house oozing character and charm
  • Situated in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Fabulous games room and tennis court to entertain everyone
Property code: 43849

Steeped in history, this magnificent country house is set within acres of beautiful grounds, with a games room and tennis court to keep you entertained not to mention exploring the Brecon Beacons.

For an unrivalled place to stay in the heart of the Brecon Beacons look no further than this luxurious manor house. Sleeping an impressive 14 guests, visitors both young and old will want for nothing throughout your stay. Ideally suited to a family get-together, younger guests and teenagers will adore lounging in the games room whilst the adults gather round a cosy wood burner or perhaps enjoy a game or two of tennis. Further afield you’ll find all that this vast National Park has to offer with a seemingly endless selection of walking, cycling and hiking routes accessible close by.

Situated on a working country estate, this impressive country property is certain to wow from the moment you arrive. Decorated throughout with antique furniture and traditional accents, you’ll no doubt feel like landed gentry for the duration of your stay. Find plenty of space to unwind in the regal drawing room or cosy snug – both of which boast wood burning fires – or challenge your nearest and dearest to table tennis in the games room. Mealtimes offer the perfect opportunity to get everyone together, and with a generous dining room and ample outdoor furniture you’ll be able to sit down and enjoy a celebratory meal come rain or shine.

Once you’ve explored the surrounding estate and lake, don your walking boots and outdoor gear for a venture into the depths of the Brecon Beacons. Whether you’re enjoying walks along the River Usk (1 mile), a trip to Llagnors Lake (5.5 miles) or even a hike up the Pen y Fan mountain (7 miles), Wales’ unbeatable landscapes offers beautiful scenery to soak up at every turn. Guests less inclined to hike or ramble will appreciate the nearby towns, with Brecon, Hay-on-Wye and Crickhowell all within 20 miles.

Plenty of space for several families. Interesting history of the house and very comfortable. Games room and tennis court made it for the children. We would definitely go again!

This was a perfect holiday retreat for us - three generations of a family. We loved the amount of space that allowed us to spread out into smaller groups, but also all come together for family meals, etc. Excellent support from the key-holder.

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.
