  • Secure storage for mountain bikes and outdoor sports equipment
  • 3 miles of free salmon and trout fishing at the nearby River Usk
Property code: BN032

Lovingly presented cottage on a complex of properties with two comfortable king-size bedrooms, ideal for two couples enjoying hiking, biking and fishing in the Brecon Beacons.

This beautiful single-storey property is ideally placed to access some of the Brecon Beacons’ most-loved landmarks. Enjoy far-reaching views from the summit of Sugar Loaf Mountain, 8 miles away, or get the heart pumping with a mountain climb at Pen y Fan, the highest peak in South Wales (21 miles). For something more relaxing, spend an afternoon fishing on the River Usk (1.5 miles).

The bright and airy property is full of little touches for the perfect home-away-from-home holiday. The contemporary kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to produce a tasty meal, and also features a gorgeous Belfast sink. Relax in the peaceful lounge area, with views over the garden, and choose a film from the selection of DVDs or curl up on the comfy sofa with a good book. From here, French doors lead to the sunny garden. This is a gorgeous spot to soak up the Welsh sunshine with a glass of wine and a few nibbles before dinner. At the end of the day, rest your head in one of the two luxurious king-size bedrooms.

The nearby River Usk offers 3 miles of free fishing, so why not spend a peaceful couple of hours catching trout and salmon to take home for your evening meal? If you love your food, then Abergavenny (4 miles) has to be on your itinerary. With its gastropubs, ancient inns and open-air markets, there’s plenty of opportunities to experience a fantastic selection of Welsh delicacies. Afterwards, burn off some energy with a 7.5-mile circular romp through ancient parkland, heather-clad moorland and wooded valleys to Sugar Loaf Mountain, where you’ll be rewarded with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside, stretching across to the Severn Estuary and the Brecon Beacons.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The cottage was perfect! Excellent views which had the wow factor. The cottage was exceptionally clean and tidy and complied with all covid guidelines. We were very impressed.

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.
