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.

Enjoy a break at this appealing, two-bedroom cottage, on a working farm, near Pengenffordd, in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Go hill-walking, cycling and wildlife-watching or light the wood burner at this carefully renovated property, which dates back to the 17th century and sleeps up to four. Soak up the sunshine in the private garden or watch the alpacas cavorting in the field opposite.

Step inside this Welsh country home and settle yourself in the inviting lounge, with its beamed, vaulted ceiling, and natural wood. On chilly evenings fire up the wood burner, then switch on the TV to watch Sky or a DVD. Prepare meals in the modern kitchen, fitted with an electric oven and hob, microwave, toaster, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Make a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy it in the conservatory-style dining room as you gaze out across the leafy garden. Take a couple of steps down to a handy WC and discover one of your bedrooms, with twin beds, also at ground-floor level. Make your way upstairs to your other bedroom, which has a double bed and low, sloping ceiling, and is filled with light. The family bathroom, which also has a low ceiling, is on the first floor too, and has a bath, hand-held shower, handbasin and WC. Wander into the garden on warm days; light the BBQ and absorb the tranquillity. Find plenty of parking at the cottage.

Plan walks and cycle rides from the front door of the cottage. Go fishing, sailing or kayaking at Llangorse Lake, 5 miles away, or visit Tretower Court and Castle, 6 miles away. Drive 3 miles to Talgarth to shop for local produce; find more shops and restaurants in Crickhowell, 9 miles away, and head 12 miles into Hay-on-Wye to explore its many bookshops.

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.
