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.

This charming, detached cottage, just to the north of the Brecon Beacons National Park, is perfect for families looking to soak up the area’s natural beauty. Surrounded by hills and views of the Welsh countryside, guests will love the abundance of space and tranquillity, as well as the wide choice of walking/cycling routes on your doorstep. Despite the rural location, the market town of Brecon is nearby, with all its shops and eateries. This is one of a number of properties at this location that can be booked together.

 

Full of original features, this cottage is bursting with character. Exposed beams, wooden floors and stone walls blend effortlessly with mod-cons to ensure your stay is a comfortable one. The farmhouse-style kitchen/diner is spacious and welcoming, whilst the cosy lounge is the perfect place to snuggle up of an evening in front of the roaring wood burner. Upstairs, there are two delightful bedrooms and a shared bathroom. Outside, children will love exploring the vast gardens and neighbouring fields, whilst adults enjoy a relaxing meal or drink against the backdrop of the gorgeous countryside.

 

Nestled amongst the beautiful Welsh countryside and with the Brecon Beacons to the south, this property occupies the ideal location for outdoor enthusiasts. Set yourself a challenge by hiking to the top of South Wales’ highest peak, Pen-Y-Fan, (12miles away), which offers breathtaking views of the area, or perhaps opt for something less strenuous like Pen-y-Crug (3.5 miles). In Brecon itself, take a stroll along the picturesque Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, explore the shops, eateries and other amenities or follow a walking trail to discover the town’s history. There are also beautiful caves, waterfalls and rivers to discover nearby, or you can even take to the water at Llangorse Lake for paddleboarding (8.5 miles).

A lovely little cottage in a quiet location, well stocked with everything you need for a self catering holiday. Dog friendly and lots of room for outdoor play, access to an enclosed field and there is a little stream that runs behind a further field that my dog enjoyed. If you have a dog that likes to wander then be aware this property has an open Read moredriveway leading on to the road (which is fairly quiet). Wouldn't recommend for anyone with mobility issues as the staircase may be an issue. Hide

We loved this place, the owners live right in front and were so helpful and welcoming. The cottage is cosy and quintessential with everything needed (including a dryer!).

Lovely location and hosts very attentive. The cottage appears to have had some upgrades ( kitchen) but the bathroom is a little in need of this too! Beds comfy and plenty of hot water. Heating worked well and wifi good. Stairs are very creaky

Location

Map
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.
