Perfect for romantic getaways, this cosy cottage for two is ideally located for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park on foot, bicycle or horseback.

Brimming with creature comforts and cosy spots, escape to the Brecon Beacons National Park for a rural retreat. Call this bolthole home and enjoy the magnificent views across the surrounding mountains and valleys. With a handful of well-trodden trails close to home, rise and shine and head straight out to explore without having to hop in the car.

Welcoming cosy nights in, put your feet up in the lounge and unwind on the comfortable sofa with the wood burner-effect electric fire roaring. Trinkets and ornaments line the mantelpiece and exposed beams add character and charm. With everything you need to rustle up delicious dinners and pack up a picnic, the oak-fitted kitchen has a coffee machine to help with those early mornings. Plate up at the dining table in the lounge or serve up a storm amidst the flowers and shrubs on the patio where you are treated to views across a wildflower meadow and pretty pond. After dinner, make your way over the road to the rockery for a tipple, here you can sit and enjoy a different view of a lake and its wildlife, including the resident heron. As day turns to night, make your way to the first floor where you can fall asleep peacefully in the king-size bedroom. Take care of the sloping ceilings in the bedroom as you rise and shine and head into the shower room to freshen up.

A 3-mile walk will take you to the bustling town of Brecon where you can stop for a bite to eat, visit the canal basin and admire the cathedral. For breathtaking, panoramic views, the highest summit in South Wales, Pen y Fan, is a 5.5-mile trip from your door and is well worth the climb.

Ann is an excellent host and her barn is well located in a beautiful area of the Brecons. Very comfortable accommodation and well equipped with everything you need to ensure your holiday base is an enjoyable experience. Great for keen walkers and for those who would like to just chill out and enjoy the local attractions at a leisurely pace.

We really enjoyed our stay at Ann's Barn and it definitely felt like our home for the week. It was lovely to be out in the countryside but have the security of the owner next door, so that we didn't feel isolated. It was great to be able to trek directly from the Ann's Barn into the Brecon Peaks. Brecon is a really lovely town to visit and there weRead morere plenty of places to eat there and good supermarkets. Hide

The place is clean, very well maintained and full of every kitchen device a self catering holiday maker would need. The garden area is for the exclusive use of the visitor and offers an uninterrupted view of the rolling pasture of the farm. Beyond the ponds there is even a waterfall. Amazily for a farm it was quiet and we slept well throughout. We Read moreeven had a family of greater spotted woodpeckers visiting the feeder daily. Hide

Map
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.
