Romantic hideaway in the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. One of three properties located on a working farm with livestock roaming the estate and fishing available in the River Crai on-site.

Discover the Brecon Beacons far and wide, staying in this peaceful and remote location close to the village of Sennybridge (3 miles) which has welcoming country pubs. Those looking to spend some quality time together can embark on romantic walks around the wonderful Welsh countryside, exploring the beautiful green valleys or summiting the national park’s highest mountain, Pen y Fan (14 miles). Keen fishermen will no doubt jump at the opportunity to procure a catch of the day, with the River Crai running right through the farmland for brown trout, and the nearby Usk Reservoir (5.5 miles) a popular spot for fly fishing. Travel to the nearby town of Brecon (11.5 miles) for restaurants, shops and cafes.


This lovingly converted cottage has been developed from a 200-year-old barn and makes up part of a complex of properties on this popular sheep farm. On arrival, head down a step and into the open-plan living area where the kitchen, lounge and dining room can be found .The kitchen is petite but fully functional, with induction hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge and washing machine. A small freezer can be found in the outhouse, where a boiler offers a warm spot for storing outerwear and secure storage for bikes. Head back inside and settle into the lounge, selecting a book to flick through or simply sit down and enjoy a DVD. On the first floor, a spacious double bedroom with sloping ceilings offers an inviting space to rest your head each night, with an en-suite waterfall shower, heated towel rail and WC.


There’s a small but functional patio space to the front of the property, with outdoor furniture and a BBQ for al fresco dining. The property is located on a 220-acre sheep farm and the resident owners invite you to take a stroll through the farm, a particularly nice pastime during lambing season.

Perfect for what we wanted, peace and quiet in the most beautiful of surroundings. A warm welcome given.

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.
