A delightful character cottage for families or outdoor enthusiasts. Surrounded by unspoilt countryside within a designated protected wildlife area, this property is just 3 miles from the amenities of Brecon.

A wildlife enthusiast’s dream, this pretty cottage is surrounded by a wealth of rare flora and fauna. Set out along the footpath that runs alongside the property to enjoy a long stroll through the stunning Brecon Beacons with your four-legged friend, or take to two wheels to follow the 55-mile traffic-free Taff Trail along paths and canal towpaths. Other outdoor pursuits available in the local area include pony trekking, clay pigeon shooting and fishing. Head into nearby Brecon to stock on supplies or enjoy a meal at one of its restaurants or pubs, or wander to the local pub in Groesffordd, just 1.5 miles away.

Inside, a charming country kitchen boasts exposed beams, a farmhouse-style table and feature fireplace. Here you will find an electric oven, fridge, microwave and dishwasher, while the large utility room houses a second sink, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and ample space for coats, boots and soggy paws. After a long day on foot, retreat to the cosy sitting room to warm up beside the large wood burner while enjoying your favourite programmes or films on the TV/DVD. A sofa bed in here sleeps an additional two guests if required. Also on the ground floor is a WC. Climb the wooden staircase to reach the first-floor accommodation, where you will find two inviting bedrooms, one double and one twin, both with exposed stone walls and sloping ceilings. The bedrooms share a bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Stepping outside, the gardens and large field offer plenty of space for children to play and explore. Meanwhile, you can enjoy a relaxing evening drink or delicious BBQ. There is ample parking.

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.
