Beautifully converted wing of a Welsh Longhouse near the River Wye and the Begwyn Hills with panoramic countryside views.

A wonderful retreat for families, friends and canine companions who share a love of the great outdoors, call this converted Welsh longhouse home and escape to the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Stroll straight from your door or head further afield and summit the peaks and mountains nearby for awesome views. Large grounds and a fun games barn promise to keep you entertained.


Set in the east wing of a charming 16th-century home, this humble abode is one of three properties on-site which share the play barn, fenced meadow and utility room. Make new friends and challenge guests to a game of table tennis, or chat whilst you dump muddy boots and leads in the handy utility room. Inside, the open-plan living space is perfect for sociable evenings which you can spend relaxing on comfortable sofas in the bright lounge. Exposed beams and far-reaching views make the kitchen a relaxing and characterful space in which to rustle up meals which can be plated up al fresco on your private patio, or at the dining table which sits near large windows. Enjoy a soak before bed in the ground-floor family bathroom before heading upstairs where you can find two charming bedrooms with sloping ceilings.


A quick 15-mile trip will take you to the largest natural lake in South Wales, Llangorse, where you can stay dry and enjoy a stroll and a game of fetch or visit the activity centre for a fun day out. The peaceful village of Clyro is 2 miles from your door and is home to a welcoming pub where you can grab a bite to eat. The renowned literary town of Hay-on-Wye is slightly further away at 3.5 miles and is home to many a bookshop, two Norman castles and a plethora of pubs.

We had a fantastic Easter getaway and couldnt have asked for better hosts. Peter and Beth were incredibly accommodating and couldnt do enough for us as their guests. Would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone - especially if you have dogs! It was 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.
