Set on a beautiful 16-acre working farm with chickens and alpacas, this friendly, spacious and welcoming 16th-century holiday cottage has been lovingly updated to provide cosy family accommodation.

This is a wonderful area to explore, with the Black Mountains towering to the east and plenty of walks and bike trails from the door. Nearby attractions include Talgarth Mill (3.5 miles), Tretower Court and Castle (6 miles) and Llangorse Lake (5 miles). Nature lovers might spot red kites and buzzards, and there are plenty of outdoor activities to pursue throughout the region including gliding, sailing, pony trekking and horse riding. The bustling and historic market town of Crickhowell is within easy reach (9 miles) and offers a range of great independent shops, pubs and restaurants, or you can head to the picturesque town of Talgarth (3 miles) whose history dates back some 6,000 years. Hay-on-Wye is also nearby (12 miles).

Entering this inviting, traditional stone-built cottage, you will find the beautifully decorated lounge which is a lovely space to relax in at the end of a wonderful day. With SkyTV, DVD, plenty of comfortable seating and a roaring wood burner, the lounge is perfect for sitting back, catching up with a good book or snuggling up to watch a favourite movie. The room features a high vaulted ceiling with beams, as well as wooden floors and panelling. The stylish kitchen offers a range of equipment including an electric oven and hob, microwave, toaster, coffee machine, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. You can sit back and enjoy a family meal in the light-filled dining room which offers glorious views across the beautiful private garden. The ground floor also features a delightful twin bedroom. A couple of steps lead down to a WC. Heading up to the first floor, you will find the light and airy master bedroom which has a cosy double bed and a low, sloping beamed ceiling. The property also has a lovely low-ceilinged bathroom on the first floor with bath, hand-held shower and WC.

Stepping outside, the large private garden features plenty of garden furniture and provides a delightful space to enjoy a BBQ or for children to play. Ample off-road parking is available. You will also be welcome to meet the alpacas which live in a field opposite the cottage, and you’ll also see chickens scratching around outside. The owners sell alpaca fleece, and visitors in April and May can see newborn alpaca babies taking their first steps.

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.
