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

Located just 1.5 miles from the small hamlet of Groesffordd, this fantastic property offers a peaceful rural location within walking distance of the local pub. For more amenities, the market town of Brecon (3 miles) is home to a good choice of shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants. Set within a designated protected wildlife area, this property is a nature lover’s dream and is also a popular choice among walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Set out on foot from the property to explore the stunning Brecon Beacons or follow the 55-mile long Taff Trail through paths, traffic-free roads and canal towpaths. Or, for a family day out, visit Cantref Adventure Farm (4.5 miles) for its indoor and outdoor play zones, animal shows and horse riding centre.

Inside, this historic home has been sympathetically updated to suit 21st century life while retaining plenty of original charm through exposed beams, oak flooring, inglenook fireplaces and panelled walls. When you’re not making the most of the catering services available, prepare delicious family feasts in the modern yet traditional kitchen, where you will find an electric Range oven, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. Once prepared, dine in style at the long refectory table in the dining room, where there is a large Aga for heating and cooking if required. After a long day, choose between the reception room with its wood burner and inglenook fireplace and drawing room with its piano, both of which boast grand oak panelling, TVs and inviting sofas and armchairs. There is a downstairs cloakroom with WC, washing machine and tumble dryer. A flight of ancient oak stairs leads up to the four elegant bedrooms, one double with en-suite shower room and large oriental rug and three twin bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom. Also, on this floor is a large family bathroom with separate shower, while steep wooden stairs lead up to the attic where there is a delightful fifth bedroom with sloping ceilings, exposed beams and four single beds, together with a bathroom with shower over the bath.

Outside, large gardens provide plenty of space for playing and exploring, together with furniture and a BBQ for enjoying meals alfresco during the summer months.

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.
