A super lodge set in a pretty orchard with local walks to enjoy with pubs and shops a short walk away, there is lots to see and do before enjoying an evening in your own hot tub gazing at the stars.

Head to Talgarth in the northern Brecon Beacons and make yourselves at home in this impressive eco home. Up to four guests, plus one dog, are welcome at the stylish, two-bedroom lodge, which is set in leafy grounds and has a contemporary design. Relax together in peaceful, Welsh surroundings, bubble in the wood-fired hot tub and explore the magnificent beauty of the national park. Wander into this fascinating property, which has Joules accessories and underfloor heating throughout, and follow the hall past a utility room, then a super-king-size room, with zip-and-link beds that can be made up as twins in advance. Continue into an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Prepare tasty meals here, dine together at the table and take in the views through the huge picture windows. Settle on the comfortable seating to watch the Smart TV or pull back the doors on warm days for seamless indoor/outdoor living. Find a king-size bedroom and family shower room beyond the kitchen area. Relax out in the sunshine on the deck of this property, which is one of two lodges on the site, and take in the views. Fire up the hot tub and light the BBQ on clement evenings. There is parking available at the lodge. Pack a picnic, lace up your walking boots and head off from home to discover more about your scenic surroundings. Walk into the village to see the watermill; find numerous footpaths and routes to follow through the countryside; wander next to the River Ennig to Pwll-y-Wrach Nature Reserve, less than 1 mile away. Make your way to Brecon, 9 miles away, to visit its museums and cathedral, and to shop in its independent outlets. Venture 8 miles into Hay-on-Wye to while away the hours in its many bookshops.

We recently stayed as a family at Apple Tree Lodge for a week and were delighted with the accommodation. The setting was gorgeous and Talgarth was an excellent base for exploring the Brecon Beacons. We even managed to use the hot tub after a bit of trial and error in getting the fire going. The only minor gripe would be that, during the hight tempeRead moreratures, the lodge gets extremely hot due to all the glazing - it might be wise to supply more than one fan for the entire building.

Talgarth is 2 mins down the hill from the lodge and has a Coop and a fabulous ice cream shop that we went to most days. Here you can see 20 or so Red Kites overhead - stunning.

Very good cottage with good equipment. However, since we were there during a heat period, there was no sun protection for the terrace. Likewise, sun protection would be useful for the large windows.

Overall the cottage is wonderful with use of a hot tub and in a lovely location. Perhaps there should be a gate at the top of the steps to prevent the dogs from going up near the cars. I would recommend the property because hopefully it was just a blip with the cleanliness.

A lovely property in a lovely location. The property is decorated to a high standard and very comfortable beds/bedding it was spotlessly clean. The location was lovely and it felt we we far from home but only an hour away. The only difficulty was the access for my elderly mother as the steps down were a struggle for her. Would highly recommend.

The lodge was beautiful and very comfortable. The location was amazing as were the views. The only disappointment was the log fired hot tub. We were unable to get the fire to stay alight even after following the instructions provided. Even if we did get it to stay alight it would take up to 6 hours to heat up. Was not aware if this when we booked.

Very comfortable little cabin set in a gorgeous village within the boundaries of the Brecon Beacons which offers amazing walks and scenery. If you have young children the lay out of the cabin could be challenging coupled with the lack of basic equipment for a young child means that it would suit slightly older families.

Overall the lodge is 5 star, the only issue would be to make mention of steep steps, especially down from the parking space, just to make people aware when booking with elderly people in their parties. Handy to have some simple introductions sent via email re the hottub , or even better to offer the service of it being lit before arrival as 5pm is Read morequite a late check in once dinner is got/prepared, you wont be able to use the hot tub before midnight. Lovely location accessible to other towns etc Hide

Location

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.
