This craftsman-made cabin is a romantic retreat for couples and dogs looking to explore this scenic pocket of Welsh countryside.

Escape to this romantic wooden cabin in the heart of the Welsh countryside. In an idyllic rural setting beside a pond, this craftsman-made retreat boasts cosy studio-style accommodation inside and a private undercover hot tub outside – perfect for couples. During your stay, make the most of the 1.5 miles of fishing on the River Irfon, wander through the surrounding countryside with your four-legged friend or even explore the area on horseback from one of the local riding centres.

Perched beside a large pond, 25 metres from the owner’s house, this charming cabin is perfect for romantic getaways. Inside, the accommodation is bright, contemporary and open plan. A chic kitchen area occupies one end of the cabin, with a sunny lounge area overlooking the pond below at the other. A double bed is nestled into a cosy nook with a TV and rural view, perfect for those long lazy mornings. French doors open from the lounge area onto a delightful balcony with table and chairs for al fresco dining, while a private hot tub sits undercover beside the cabin – the perfect way to end a busy day on foot.

Located down a peaceful and private country lane, this rural retreat is a walker’s paradise. Set out on foot to explore the local area, following the meandering River Irfon or jump in the car to visit the Crychan Forest (12 miles) with its walking, cycling and riding trails. Take to the water with a day of kayaking or sailing on Llangorse Lake (24 miles) or simply sit and admire the view with a lakeside picnic. For supplies, head into the nearby village of Llangammarch (3 miles) where you will find a shop and pub or venture to Builth Wells (8 miles) for more amenities and historic sights.

We had a wonderful stay in the cottage with our dog. The cottage is equipped with everything we needed. The location was good, 15 minutes drive from the main town and supermarket. The hot tub was an added bonus and it was lovely for the cold evenings. We will definitely be back in the future. Highly recommend.

The host could not do enough for us. Was our anniversary whilst we was there. She sourced wine for us that was waiting for us when we got there. Gave us lots of advice. The lodge was lovely. The hot tub was amazing and the whole place is a credit to debbie and her husband

Superb location just what we needed for a peaceful break in the hills - ideal for two people and the dog - view from the hot tub was excellent

Lovely, clean and tidy lodge. Everything you need to get away from it all. A hot tub to relax in every day surrounded by lovely views.

Reviewed by Miss Zebedee July 2020

Apple Blossom Lodge (as we found it is called when we got there) was perfect for what we wanted. Out of the way down a private lane, with only sheep (& the lovely owners nearby if needed) for company but still well placed to explore the local area. The lodge was clean and well stocked for everyday needs (kettle, toaster, oven etc and a lovely welcoRead moreme pack) It is well maintained & set by a pond that has a small waterfall, always nice to hear running water. The hot tub was a nice bonus for soaking tired muscles at the end of a day exploring. If you want to get away from it all, this (or any other of the 3 lodges owned by the same people) is the perfect place. 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.
