Enjoy a romantic retreat in the charming town of Brecon, in this lovely terraced property that’s perfectly suited for two.

Explore the Brecon Beacons National Park both near and far with a stay in this delightful property. At the very end of your road (200 metres), you’ll find the centre of this picturesque market town, with welcoming pubs, tasty eateries, a theatre and a cinema to keep you entertained. Take a leisurely stroll along the River Usk (300 metres), then pick up some local produce from the butchers and bakers to take home and cook. Travelling a little further afield, this national park offers an abundance of hiking and biking routes, as well as an outdoor activity centre for hair-raising adventure. Summit Pen y Fan (5.5 miles) or visit the Llangorse Activity Centre (7.5 miles) for horse riding and climbing.

This terraced cottage is accessed via a short flight of stone steps which take you to a pretty terraced area. Step inside and feel instantly at home, with this welcoming property decorated with charming decor. The lounge offers a peaceful spot for a relaxing night in, with a cosy sofa, a warming gas fire and TV/DVD. Meals can be prepared in the kitchen with a sloping ceiling, where electric oven, hob, microwave and fridge/freezer sit alongside a handy little dining table for two. Those bringing canine company will appreciate the washing machine in the adjacent utility room, along with the extra help of a dishwasher and downstairs WC. Upstairs, there is one spacious double bedroom with beautiful views of Brecon from its window. Completing the property is a contemporary bathroom with corner shower and WC.

Bede's cottage offers a very good Brecon location for two!


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.
