Lovely & quiet setting with most things you need for a holiday. Beds a little uncomfortable & probably need updating. Shower/bathroom facilities though, really good. Hard to find cottage even with Google maps!!

The cottage was a comfortable haven of calm and beauty in nature. All kinds of birds, squirrels and rabbits were regular guests in the beautiful garden. It brought us back to our childhood when we visited our grand parents. We had everything we needed and the owner Steven was very friendly and helpful. Haye on Wye is a nice town to visit (speciallyRead more on thursday - marketday) and the region offers plenty of possibilities for nice walks. Hide

Cottage was absolutely magical. The setting was gorgeous - forest one side and fields/mountains the other - and the inside was lovely (oak beams, real fire place etc etc). It felt like a little haven. My only criticism is the shower pressure was extremely weak. Other than that, the bed was comfortable, the kitchen was modern and well-stocked and agRead moreain, the whole place was totally magical. Highly recommend! Hide

This cottage is simply gorgeous. The setting really is stunning, peaceful and surrounded by beautiful countryside and forestry. The sound of the stream running next to it a bonus. I woke up to a picture window with sheep grazing in the field and a backdrop of hills and mountains. We absolutely loved the quirky oldy woldy look and Feel of the cottagRead moree and having a log burner was the icing on the cake. The locals were so helpful and friendly too. Hide

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.
