Set within the charming village of Llangynidr, this delightful cottage is a welcoming bolthole for couples or small families to explore the best of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Located in Llangynidr, this property is just a short stroll from two popular pubs, both of which offer children’s play areas to keep the whole family entertained. The village, through which the River Usk runs with its ancient stone bridge, is also home to a useful shop for stocking up on supplies and a Post Office. Set out on foot or bicycle and follow the Crickhowell Canal Walk, which runs all the way to Crickhowell (5 miles), passing surrounding hills and countryside along the way. For something more challenging, take on nearby Tor y Foel (5.5 miles) or Myarth (2.5 miles), both of which boast spectacular views from the summits. Take to the water with a visit to Llangorse Lake (6.5 miles), where kayaking and sailing can all be enjoyed.

Inside, this period property is brimming with original charm, from its exposed beams and stonework to its large inglenook fireplace. The delightful kitchen offers an electric oven and hob, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher, microwave and wine cooler for those long hot summer nights. The inviting sitting room boasts an original stone floor and wood burner set into an original inglenook fireplace and a lovely dining space. It is also the perfect place to curl up in front of the Freeview TV/DVD after a long day on foot. There is a utility room with WC reached via two steps on the ground floor. A flight of stairs lead up from the kitchen to two charming bedrooms with sash windows overlooking the village, one double with antique iron bedstead and stone walls and one twin with exposed oak beams. The bedrooms share a large and light bathroom with shower over the bath and sloping ceilings.

Outside and up a set of steps, a walled enclosed garden with a pretty summerhouse is the perfect spot for enjoying a refreshing glass of wine as the sun goes down. There is roadside parking outside.

This is our second (and definitely not our last) visit to Ash Cottage. Its location is quiet, but not isolated, in this friendly village. The cottage is spotlessly clean and tidy. It is very well equipped, homely and just a joy to stay in. It is dog friendly and has a good sized, safe and enclosed garden. This is an absolute gem of a cottage - do yRead moreourself a favour and stay here! 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.
