This traditional old farmhouse offers a wonderfully peaceful and private base from which to explore the Cambrian Mountains, while only 2.5 miles from the amenities of Llanwrtyd Wells.

Located at the end of a 1-mile track shared only with the farm, this secluded property is perfect for families or groups of friends wishing to get away from it all. Explore the surrounding area on foot with your dogs in tow, or try a spot of mountain biking, pony trekking or even bog snorkelling. Birdwatchers should keep an eye out for red kites, which are often spotted in the area, while keen fishermen and women should take to the banks of the River Irfon for the day, which can be booked at a reduced rate. For supplies or a good meal out, head into the busy town of Llanwrtyd Wells (2.5 miles), which boasts a small supermarket, shops, pubs and restaurants.

Inside, this period farmhouse is brimming with original charm, through exposed beams, feature fireplaces and sash windows. The open-plan kitchen/dining/living room is the hub of the home, with its large flagstone floor, open fireplace and pine table. Here you will also find an electric oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine, washing machine and a cosy seating area with TV. A separate sitting room offers an alternative space in which to relax in the evenings, complete with Freeview TV and DVD. There is a downstairs shower room and WC. Up the steep cottage-style stairs are four pretty bedrooms, one double, two singles and one twin, all of which offer wonderful rural views through sash windows. The twin bedroom is reached via one of the single bedrooms, and they all share a spacious and creatively decorated bathroom.

Outside, there is a small walled garden for enjoying al fresco drinks in the sunshine. From here, wonderful walks can be enjoyed along the riverbanks while your dogs enjoy a refreshing swim. There is ample off-road parking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The Cottage is a true escape from it all - with friendly horses and some sheep as the only neighbours, and the sound of the birds and running water from the river background noise. The Property is more spacious than appeared from the photos, which don't do it justice and it's very comfortable. There is a swimming spot in the river a shortish walkRead more away Hide

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.
