Enjoying a peaceful location, this rural retreat with traditional wood burner is perfect for couples seeking a bolthole in the heart of the picturesque Brecon Beacons.

Be inspired by the sublime views of the Brecon Beacons from this intimate hideaway in the hamlet of Aberyscir. Those with a passion for nature will appreciate waking up to the sights and sounds of the countryside. This former Victorian coach house sits alongside the owner’s property, but privacy is assured, although don’t be surprised if the resident sheep drop by to say hello! There are footpaths right on the doorstep to enjoy. A mile-long walk takes you to Brecon Gaer Roman Fort, where the views across the River Usk are pretty special.

The open-plan living space has rustic features throughout. Start your day with fresh eggs from the owner’s hens, or savour a homecooked supper sat at the cosy dining table. As the evening draws in, snuggle up on the sofa in front of the wood burner in your PJs to watch a film. When you can no longer keep your eyes open, dive under the covers of the elegant double bed to get a good night’s rest. During waking hours, you might want to spend as much time as possible in the garden as this is the best place to drink in the magnificent landscape. Sit out on the patio with a glass of wine or fire up the BBQ for al fresco dining.

Less than 4 miles from the property is the pretty market town of Brecon, with its magnificent cathedral, unique shops and theatre by the canal. If you’re a keen cyclist, bring your bike for scenic rides through the Brecon Beacons National Park. This is also one of the best places in the UK for stargazing. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, why not walk up to the summit of Pen y Fan (9 miles), the highest peak in South Wales? The views are well worth the climb.

The cottage is in a beautiful location, but also close to Brecon. It was very well equipped with a nice sitting out area. The Welcome Pack was excellent, plus flowers and wine to greet us.

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.
