This delightful cottage offers the perfect escape for families and ponies alike, with plenty of walks and paths nearby and a wonderful garden of herbs, vegetables and fruit trees waiting to be enjoyed back at the cottage.

Located on the owner’s farm, this rural bolthole is perfectly positioned for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. When available the owner is happy for guests to join them for a walk around the farm or venture into nearby Kinnersley (0.5 miles), with its unique castle. Keen walkers should head for Kington (8.5 miles), Offa’s Dyke Path (20 miles) or the Wye Valley, (22.5 miles) all of which offer spectacular trails and jaw-dropping views. More challenging climbs can be found in the wonderful Brecon Beacons National Park, just 13 miles away. No visit to this area is complete without a trip to the foodie favourite of Ludlow (24 miles), or the literary mecca of Hay-on-Wye (10 miles).

Inside, this cottage has been artistically fitted and furnished throughout with plenty of character and appeal. The delightful kitchen is fitted with an electric oven, halogen hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and washing machine. Beyond the original stabling stall dividers is an inviting lounge/dining area. Curl up in front of the Biomass wood pellet burner and settle in for a cosy evening of books, games or films on the Freeview TV/DVD while relaxing on one of the comfortable chairs complete with homemade cushions. Upstairs are two inviting bedrooms with sloping ceilings, one double with four-poster bed and a hand basin, and one twin zip-and-link (can be made into super-king-size on request) with a hand basin. Both bedrooms enjoy wonderful rural views and share a bathroom with shower over the bath.

Outside, the shared gardens offer plenty of quiet areas for al fresco drinks and dining. Guests also have access to a herb and vegetable garden, where pear, apple, cherry and quince trees can be found. Younger guests will enjoy the children's play area with slide and trampoline. Stabling is available for guests if they would like to bring a pony. There is ample off-road parking.

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.
