Escape to the country and enjoy a stay off the beaten track with this unforgettable self-catering accommodation, enjoying life on a working farm and close proximity to the Brecon Beacons.

Switch off from the distractions of everyday life at this secluded cottage in the Cambrian Mountains. This rural hideaway – one of two converted barns – is ideal for a couple and two of their four-legged friends. It’s surrounded by lush green valleys and wildlife, and you won’t even have to get the car out to find scenic walks as there are several straight from your doorstep.

Inside, the lounge is an inviting place to relax, and there’s a small selection of books if you fancy a quiet holiday read, either indoors or out. Alternatively, see what’s on TV or sit back to watch one of your favourite DVDs. The sofa doubles as a bed if you want to invite more guests. The bedroom is upstairs on the first floor, where you can get plenty of rest to recharge your batteries ready for the next day’s adventure. Outside, sip morning coffee or enjoy evening drinks on the furnished patio, savouring the magnificent view. You can store mountain bikes and canoes in the secure shared space, and there’s a handy shared outdoor wet room for washing down muddy gear.

If you want to head off exploring, the Elan Valley (14 miles) shouldn’t be missed, with its reservoirs, water sports and wildlife, while the Brecon Beacons National Park (20 miles) has a wealth of mountain walks, waterfalls and gorges. To the north of the property, Gilfach Nature Reserve (16.5 miles) offers you the chance to spot otters, colourful butterflies and even wild salmon leaping out of the water. For shops and nights out, head to the market town of Builth Wells (10 miles), home to an independent theatre and cinema, as well as delightful pubs and restaurants.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Warmly welcomed by Mary as we arrived at Bach Cottage, a comfortable, well equipped and cosy base for a very rural break in the Welsh hills surrounded by sheep and birdsong, with lovely views. There is no wifi or phone signal and we forgot to bring cards or a board game which would have been nice when the wind & rain was extreme for one of our daysRead more there, but there are books and plenty of tv channels. There are some lovely walks around the hills and plenty of interest for days out. Just lovely. Hide

Fantastic location away from the crowds surrounded by amazing scenery and beautiful walks. The cottage was sparkling clean and the welcome goodies much appreciated.

Our warm welcome from Mary put us immediately at ease that we would be totally safe here in relation to the Covid epidemic. The house was comfortable and well-equipped wth beautiful views from the windows. Mary told us about simple walks we could do straight from the house; and there were also other beautiful locations accessible by car. We did ourRead more main shopping in Builth Wells and Llandridnod Wells; but the village shop in Beulah was fairly well-stocked for last-minute purposes. 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.
