This charming detached cottage is set in the heart of the Black Mountains and has wonderful views from the elevated garden. This is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

The cottage is set at the foot of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, and part of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains are all around you, so great walks are available from your door. Situated next door to the owner’s home where fresh eggs and treats are available from the owner’s kitchen, this is the ideal spot for some rest and relaxtion. Take a trip to the market in Abergavenny, Crickhowell which is 6 miles away is great for small local stores. Visit one of the many historic houses, gardens and castles such as White Castle, Longtown, Grosmont and Raglan Castle. Hay-on-Wye with its famous Literary Festival is approximately a 40 minute drive away.

The perfect spot to curl up and enjoy a film in the evening. The neutral and stylish décor gives this property a light and airy feel throughout, with soft furnishings dotted around for comfort.. The cosy king-size bedroom is tucked away at the end of the corridor, with sumptuous bedding and DAB radio to wake up to in the mornings. Next to the bedroom there is a contemporary shower room with monsoon shower head to revive you for the day ahead.

Outside you will find patio furniture for sitting back and watching the world go by, together with steps up to the private garden area. From here you can enjoy wonderful rural views, toast marshmallows over the fire pit or even light the BBQ for dinner on a sunny evening. Behind the property there is a utility/boot room offering a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a handy outside tap for washing those muddy paws after long walks! There is off-road parking for 1 car to the front of the property.

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

SLEEPS 2: King-size bedroom, fresh bedlinen included, Welsh blankets and storage space.

Fantastic location for walkers! We hardly used our car to access any of our walks which was superb and loved the fact there wasnt much service when you were out and about in the hills.

Map
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.
