A perfect rural and romantic Welsh retreat in the rolling hills, this magnificent cottage has stunning 360 views of the Usk Valley and Brecon Beacons.

Situated in private grounds above the tiny hamlet of Garthbrengy, this is the ideal romantic getaway for two. With miles of countryside all around, you will be able to find a walking or cycling route on your doorstep. The town of Brecon is 2 miles south, with its selection of pubs, eateries, cafes and shops. Here you can also participate in water activities on the River Usk, or access the Brecon Beacons National Park where you can explore 520 square miles of green spaces, mountains and woodland.

This romantic bolthole has recently been renovated yet still retains a lot of traditional Welsh character. The single-storey stone barn has high ceilings, exposed beams and is tastefully decorated throughout. The kitchen area has all of the amenities you should require as well as plenty of surface space to prepare and cook meals. Once complete, you can enjoy the food at the farmhouse-style table and chairs. The living area is bright and has windows all around, so you can admire the views from the comfortable leather sofas and chairs. The double bedroom features high ceilings and exposed beams, making the area spacious yet homely. The bathroom has a useful walk-in shower.

The living room doors open up onto a pretty patio with seating area and BBQ. From here, you will be overlooking the on-site duck pond and a large lawn area. The views across the valleys and hills are breathtaking. Light pollution is very low here and starry night skies are often a welcome sight when the weather is clear. Ample parking is available to the front of the property.

Very comfortable, with everything to make the break enjoyable with amazing views, quiet location but within easy reach of Brecon. Lovely to find welcome gift of local produce.

Nice cottage, would return. It would benefit from a shade over the bedroom skylight and if the dog could toilet elsewhere than in the garden. Otherwise great!

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.
