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.

Surrounded by livestock and wildlife in the heart of Powys, this converted farmhouse offers the perfect chance to get away from it all and truly unwind. Located in the Cambrian Mountains, an area once known as the ‘green desert of Wales’, you’ll find an abundance of walks from your doorstep. Keen mountaineers will enjoy exploring the local area on foot or jumping in the car to discover the Brecon Beacons National Park (20.5 miles) a little further afield. After long days of activity, you’ll no doubt look forward to a relaxing evening, visiting a welcoming local pub (3.5 miles) or checking out the independent cinema and theatre in Builth Wells (11.5 miles).

Step into this unique barn conversion to find an instantly welcome place to call home. An open-plan kitchen and dining room offers a sociable spot for two to prepare food and dine, with electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge with freezer. Continue through the property to find a charming lounge area, where comfortable seating and a small selection of books creates an inviting place to relax. Switch on the TV to flick through Freeview channels or perhaps put on one of your favourite DVDs. You’ll find a quality sofa bed here in the lounge, perfect for a couple more guests throughout your stay. This property has one bedroom which can be found upstairs on the first floor. Sink into the comfortable double bed and relax in preparation for tomorrow's adventure. The property also offers a shower room with WC.

Wander outside and soak up the sounds of the countryside, taking coffee or enjoying evening drinks on the furnished patio. The property offers a secure, shared storage space for outdoor equipment such as bikes and boats, with a handy wet room for cleaning off all of that Welsh mud.

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

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.
