Celebrate special occasions at this opulent manor house with grand accommodation, large gardens and a sought-after location on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park

A Grade II-listed country home, this manor house for twelve guests makes for the most atmospheric retreat for families and friends. On the northern fringes of the Brecon Beacons National Park near Brecon, it boasts access to some of the country’s most beautiful swathes of untamed wilderness as well as proximity to local amenities, including a nearby pub. Nestled within a protected wildlife area, outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers will feel particularly at home here, cycling the Taff Trail, hiking the rocky hulk of Pen Y Fan and sunbathing in the garden, listening out for the tell-tale call of red kites.

 

Exuding romantic appeal, this 15th century rural manor invites families and groups of friends to settle in. Surrounded by sprawling grounds, the property’s grand façade houses a characterful interior where exposed stone walls and original features mingle with modern accoutrements and soft, comfortable furnishings. Perfectly designed for social gatherings, the downstairs’ features a fully equipped, self-catering kitchen and a welcoming open-plan dining-cum-sitting room where a large table easily accommodates family meals. Ensuring restful nights of sleep and easy mornings getting ready, this property benefits from five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Outside, immaculately maintained grounds are home to a BBQ for summer use.

 

Just 1.5 miles from the village of Groesffordd, home to a popular pub, and only 3 miles from the market town of Brecon, with its array of shops, supermarkets and cafés, guests are never far from picturesque streets and welcoming eateries. Wander along the Brecon Canal (hailed as South Wales’ most beautiful), peruse the independent shops and stop for a moment to marvel at the cathedral – where a priory has stood since 1093AD. Another day you could enjoy a picnic at Langorse Lake (8.5 miles) or challenge yourself with a walk up nearby Pen y Crug (3 miles).

The Manor is an old quirky house, ideal for large families or groups to spend time together. It is situated in quiet countryside with fantastic views handy to Brecon for shopping. However as the owner states, the access to bedrooms and bathrooms is definitely not for anyone who has difficulty with stairs.

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.
