Property code: BN030

Get the family together for an unforgettable stay in the Brecon Beacons, with Pen y Fan accessible from your doorstep and the added luxury of a hot tub for relaxing evenings in.

Located in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this glorious traditional Welsh stone Longhouse is the perfect base for getting to know the surrounding valleys and quaint market towns. The house is on the edge of National Trust land that runs up to the top of the Beacons so you can walk from your own front door to the top of the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons, Pen Y Fan.  This is a wonderful location whether you're relaxing with friends, or want to explore the landscape on foot or by mountain bike.   For more relaxing afternoons, visit the nearby town of Brecon (5 miles) and Hay-on-Wye (21 miles).

A completely unique property that sits on 3 acres of land, there’s more than enough room for eight guests to unwind here in the Brecon Beacons. Step inside and discover the kitchen, where wall-to-wall windows offer delightful views of the pretty garden. Prepare dinner using the double induction oven with hob, grill, microwave and fridge, sit down to enjoy lazy breakfasts at the kitchen table or make full use of the dining room. The dining room seats 8 and boasts a warming wood burner. The utility room has a dishwasher, along with an extra fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. This handy room is a great spot for drying off muddy paws, along with providing space to store walking boots whilst not in use. The sitting room offers the same beautiful views as the kitchen, with comfortable sofas, cosy wood burner and TV/DVD. The first of four bedrooms can be found on the ground floor, with a spacious zip-and-link super king-size boasting an en-suite with large walk-in shower. Three further bedrooms are located on the first floor, including the master super king-size which is accessed via its own staircase. The master bedroom has an en-suite with its own bath and shower over. Completing the property are two further bedrooms, both of which contain zip-and-link beds and en-suite bathrooms. The first of these is a super king-size, whilst the second is a suitably spacious king-size.

Surrounded by seemingly endless outdoor space, this stunning property truly comes into its own in warmer weather. The terrace is well-furnished with space for 8 to dine alfresco, a hot tub and BBQ. The generous gardens come equipped with croquet and badminton sets. You’re welcome to lock this shed when storing mountain bikes and equipment. Completing the area are two spacious fields that are ideal for exercising dogs and a kennel with a secure dog run. A pretty brook flows past this property but is secured by a fence to ensure a safe play area for children.

The Cottage was wonderful and ideal for a family and friends gathering. It was so homely but spacious at the same time and had everything we needed and more. All bedrooms were en-suite which was great. Waking up at the foot of the Beacons was stunning. The hot tub was an added bonus. Would definitely recommend, my friends hope to have their own sRead moretay and I hope to stay again. 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.
