A 15th-century chocolate-box cottage trapped in time, offering an entirely relaxing stay just 2 miles from popular Hay-on-Wye. Perfect for a small family or group of friends.

Just 2 miles from the literary town of Hay-on-Wye, on the brink of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this bolthole is perfect for exploring the Welsh countryside with family and friends. Exuding country charm and character, this picturesque cottage has traditional features such as beautiful, exposed beams throughout.


Surrounded by trees and blossoming flowers, pretty windows dot the exterior of the cottage and the charm continues inside. The lounge is perfect for relaxing in after days in the great outdoors. Snuggle up under blankets and fire up the wood burner for a cosy evening in front of the TV. Cook up delicious feasts in the kitchen where an abundance of utensils and appliances including a Rayburn help you to make light work of feeding hungry guests. Plate up at the table where a large window boasts breathtaking views across the peaks and mountains which lie beyond the garden. Nestled in the eaves of the house, with exposed low beams and tons of character, climb stairs to the first floor where you can rest your head in one of three cosy bedrooms. The single bedroom is accessed via the handsome double bedroom, perfect for families and decorated with pretty, floral furnishings. Enjoy a soak in the first-floor family bathroom and get your day off to a relaxing start.


Welcoming your four-legged friends too, there are plenty of walks nearby to explore together. Set off from your doorstep and make your way into the nearby forest for adventures galore. A 12.5-mile journey will take you to the largest natural lake in South Wales, Llangorse, or travel to Hay-on-Wye (2 miles) and visit the array of charming bookshops and welcoming pubs. If your trip coincides with the annual literary festival at Hay-on-Wye, then you must pay this fascinating festival a visit.

Lovely stay and we all enjoyed our holiday especially our Westies Lillie and Jack. Tranquil and loved hearing the birds in the morning. Opening the curtains and seeing the sheep was delightful and the views of the countryside was exceptional. We will definitely wish to come back. Ideal cottage and location for walking and dog owners.

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.
