Property code: BN044

Eight people are welcome at this eclectic holiday cottage located 3 miles from popular town Hay-on-Wye. The property features an open fire, Aga and large, enclosed garden.

Boasting spectacular views across the surrounding mountains, this Welsh longhouse is the perfect dwelling for family and friends to escape to. Leave the ordinary behind when you step inside this unique home and admire the extraordinary, eclectic interior. With welcoming creature comforts including a wood burner and oil-fired Aga, you’ll have no problem switching off and relaxing after days exploring your enchanting surroundings.

Make your way down the path and into this gorgeous property where you are greeted by the delightful living space. Plenty of space in the kitchen means you can make light work of dinner times and enjoy a tipple at the table whilst prepping delicious meals. Serve up at the kitchen table or enjoy a formal evening in the reading room which houses a dining table; here, artwork adorns the walls and you’ll sit beneath charming, exposed beams. Settle into one of the comfortable sofas arranged around the wood burner in the brightly coloured lounge or bask in the sunshine in the conservatory where you can sit at the table and marvel at the far-reaching views. Retire to bed and head upstairs where the decor is light, bright and fresh and the bedrooms are flooded with natural light. The king-size master has an en-suite bathroom, and the first-floor family bathroom has a bath so you can start your day with a soak in the tub.

Beyond the enclosed lawn, patio terrace and wildflower meadow lie the fantastic Brecon Beacons. A 7-mile trip will take you to Hay Bluff, a hill just north of the Black Mountains which straddles the border between Wales and England. 2 miles from your door is the pretty literary town of Hay-on-Wye. Plan your trip to coincide with the annual literary festival or browse the bookshops and tuck into a tasty pub meal.

Like the relaxed style, quiet location and views. Also the many walks right on the doorstep

Just as described on website - warm, comfortable, relaxed and slightly eccentric!

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.
