Stunning converted coach house with direct access to the Brecon Beacons and the Taff Trail cycling path, perfectly positioned for exploring the natural beauty of the region.

Surrounded by rolling hills and open skies, this attractive stone holiday home combines original features with contemporary style. One of a complex of properties close to the sleepy village of Groesffordd, this property is only 3 miles from the vibrant cathedral town of Brecon, with its shops, pubs and restaurants. Step out of the front door for long walks through the stunning landscape of the Brecon Beacons or enjoy spotting the constellation in the Brecon Beacons International Dark Sky Reserve. Discover the military history of the town at The Royal Welsh Museum and enjoy a walk along the towpath of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Why not take a barge trip along the canal and take in the scenery as you sail along the water? or a cycle ride along the Taff Trail, a traffic-free cycle path running through the glorious countryside, perhaps a visit to the spectacular Llangorse Lake (7 miles) for a picnic by its tranquil water.


Pull up onto the gravel driveway of your holiday home and take a moment to appreciate the beauty of your surroundings with verdant hills and towering trees surrounding the cottage. Step through the door and into the spacious lounge where you will find polished floorboards, exposed ceiling beams and the original cart arched windows flooding the room with natural light. Sink into one of the plush sofas and chairs after a long walk and enjoy the warmth from the wood burner in the fabulous stone fireplace as you watch a favourite film on the TV and DVD player. The light and airy kitchen/diner with it's slate floors and exposed ceiling beams is an inviting space to prepare delicious dinners to share at the large dining table positioned in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows looking out across the Brecon Beacons. The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric double oven, five-ring halogen hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and a freezer. You’ll find a washing machine and tumble dryer in the adjacent utility room and there’s a convenient cloakroom with a WC perfect for freshening up before supper. Handmade oak stairs lead to the first floor and the three well-appointed bedrooms, all with polished wooden floors and exposed ceiling beams creating a restful atmosphere. The spacious family bedroom has a double bed and a single bed and benefits from an en-suite shower room. There is also a comfortable double bedroom and a cosy twin bedroom, both enjoying wonderful countryside views. On this floor is also the spacious family bathroom with a bath and separate shower cubicle.


Venturing outside, enjoy the wonderful views as you sip your morning coffee or light the BBQ for a relaxed evening meal as the sun sets over the hills. The Brecon Beacons are accessible straight from the doorstep. The coach house sits within a Site of Special Scientific Interest so there is a wealth of rare wildlife and fauna to be found nearby. In season, orchids abound along the grass verges of the lanes; a great spot for wildlife enthusiasts of all ages. There is ample parking at the property and bike storage is available.

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.
