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.

A picture-perfect bolthole, this two-person cottage in Crai is ideal for exploring Mid Wales and the Brecon Beacons National Park. Located on a 220-acre working farm, the property is surrounded by sprawling fields and scenic rural landscape, perfect for those looking for a peaceful escape. Get out on invigorating country walks, head to the local village of Sennybridge (3 miles) for a meal in the pub and return to hunker down on the sofa with a book, enjoying a relaxing getaway.

One of three lovingly converted cottages, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom property is just right for solo escapes and romantic hideaways. Quirky, country decor throughout will make you feel at home. The heart of the cottage, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is accessed via a step down and is a cosy space for perusing local maps and reading books. For meals in, the pretty kitchen has everything you could need for rustling up feasts, including an oven and hob. And, if you get muddy on your explorations, there is even a washing machine too. For other gear and extra food, a secure outhouse stores a freezer and has room for bikes and outdoor kit.

For days when you just feel like lighting up the BBQ and relaxing with a cool drink, this cottage has a small patio space to the front with BBQ and outdoor seating. Other days, you can branch out to explore the Welsh countryside, from the picturesque valleys to the national park’s highest mountain, Pen y Fan (14.5 miles). Brecon (14 miles) has lots of restaurants, shops and cafés as well as a castle, museum and canal walk. For a completely different side of the National Park, the National Showcaves Centre (7.5 miles) is ideal for underground adventures.

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


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.
