Property code: BN027

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.

Perched on the brink of the Brecon Beacons and deep in the Welsh countryside, this charming property is the ideal base for exploring the Wales and England border. Visit nearby Hay-on-Wye (2 miles) to discover welcoming family pubs and its generous selection of bookshops or plan a visit to coincide with its annual literary festival. Take a trip to the River Wye (2 miles) to try your hand at catching a salmon or trout, or simply set off on enjoyable hikes from your very doorstep.

A beautiful white-washed stone cottage surrounded by trees and flora awaits your arrival. Stepping inside, the kitchen awaits where a coal-fired Rayburn warms the property throughout in even the coldest of months. You’ll also find an electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge and a freezer for feeding your family, along with a dishwasher for stacking the plates afterwards. Completing the kitchen is a handy washing machine in case you’ve been caught in the rain. Meals can be enjoyed right here in the kitchen, with a dining table boasting far-reaching views to be enjoyed out of the window. After dinner, retire to the comfortable sitting room. Throw a log on the wood burner and settle into sofas and armchairs, switching on the TV/DVD or enjoying a CD or two. Traditional wooden stairs lead up to the first floor where you’ll find three cosy bedrooms with sloping ceilings. Nestled under the eaves of the property is a handsome double bedroom, which has a low beam to one side of the bed. Continue into a charming single bedroom through the master room, where floral soft furnishings ensure a truly rural decor. Another single bedroom completes the sleeping space on this floor, with a pretty window offering views of the garden. Finally, you’ll find a spacious family bathroom with shower over bath and a WC in an adjacent room.

Head out into the garden up some steps and soak up the peace and tranquilly of this rural location. A small stream flows through the outdoor space, and mature trees and shrubs offer shelter on hotter days. The large sloping garden is backed by a vast forest, perfect for setting off on walks from your doorstep.

Gorgeous rustic cottage! :)

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.
