Escape to the Brecon Beacons in style with this charmingly rustic cottage in the popular village of Talybont-on-Usk, the perfect location for long walks and plenty of peace and quiet.

Located close to the River Caerfanell, this property offers peaceful strolls along the canal bank towpath. More challenging walks can be enjoyed up on the Brecon Beacons, taking in the heights of Pen y Fan (14 miles), Cribyn (13 miles) and Fan y Big (9 miles). Mountain bikers should take on the famous Taff Trail, which passes through the village and stretches all the way to Cardiff in the south. For something a little more serene, discover the spectacular waterfalls at Blaen-y-Glyn and the large picturesque reservoir at Talybont, is often teeming with migratory birds. After a long and busy day, stock up on supplies at the shop in the village or sample local delights in one of the two village pubs.


This delightful cottage offers a stylish bolthole for couples, families and four-legged friends. Enter the open-plan ground floor via a couple of steps. The well-equipped galley kitchen contains an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and washing machine. From here, step through into the cosy sitting area with its wooden floors, dining table and bay window with seats looking out onto the garden. In the evenings, fire up the wood burner and settle in for a relaxing evening spent watching the Freeview TV and DVD, listening to music on the radio or CD player or choosing from one of the assortments of books and games available. There is a downstairs bathroom with a shower over the bath. Steep traditional stairs (with no handrail) lead to the two charming bedrooms, one low double with views over the garden to the river and Allt Mountain, and one single that looks out towards the canal.


Outside, there is a delightful enclosed garden with terrace, table, chairs and a BBQ for al fresco meals and a lawn bordered by flowerbeds for the dog. There is roadside parking nearby.

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.
