Unforgettable holiday home with far-reaching views of Wales’ dramatic mountains and walks both long and short on your very doorstep.

You’ll receive a warm Welsh welcome on arrival at this remarkable 18th century Brecon Beacons barn, perfect for discovering the wonders of the national park with all the family. Step out and embark on a trip up Pen y Fan (6 miles), the area’s highest mountain with striking views from its summit. You may prefer to travel a little further to the Black Mountains region and walk the Waun Fach (13 miles), or set out on some thrilling outdoor adventures with the Llangorse Activity Centre (9.5 miles). For more peaceful excursions, head to the nearby market town of Brecon (2 miles), which is filled to the brim with history, charm and most importantly - excellent places to eat and drink.

Don’t be afraid to return from your adventures with muddy boots and wet coats, heading straight into the handy utility room to make use of washing machine, tumble dryer and the sink. Once you’ve dried off and settled in, feel free to discover the generous farmhouse kitchen, which comes equipped with a hob and fan oven, larder-style fridge, freezer and microwave, as well as a vast breakfast table comfortably seating ten. Meals can also be enjoyed in the devoted dining room which features another spacious table. All ten of you will find space to rest and relax come the evening, with the conservatory boasting comfy sofas and a mesmerising view across the Brecon Beacons, and the lounge offering a cosy hub for watching the TV/DVD by the wood burner. Alternatively, make use of the CD Hi-Fi system or play a family board game. The first of five bedrooms can be found here on the ground floor. This is a twin bedroom. Completing the ground floor is a shower room with WC, and separate WC. A wide set of stairs leads you to the first floor and four further bedrooms. One master king-size and three double bedrooms all offer sumptuous spots for a good night's sleep. Finally, the property boasts a family bathroom with bath and WC, and a shower room with shower and WC.

When blessed with bright and cheerful weather, be sure to soak up the Welsh sunshine in the garden. This enclosed space is ideal for letting younger visitors and their canine companions safely burn off some energy, and the outdoor furniture ensure dining alfresco runs without a hitch.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
