Charming cottage on the rugged western fringes of the Brecon Beacons National Park - perfectly placed for hiking, cycling, and social fun together.

Settle into your stay at this appealing stone cottage, which nestles in undulating, wooded countryside less than 1 mile from the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Up to four guests are welcome at the inviting, two-bedroom, holiday home, which is part of a Welsh farmhouse dating back to the 16th century.


Make your way into this beautifully finished cottage, which is set next to the owners’ accommodation. Find an open-plan lounge/diner with a beautiful, heavily beamed ceiling and great stone inglenook fireplace. Unwind in front of a roaring wood burner and perhaps the TV, which has Freeview; dine together or play games round the table and chat about the day’s adventures. Take two stone steps into the kitchen to find an electric oven and induction hob, a fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, and dishwasher, to enable you to prepare delicious meals. Venture up the steep, cottage-style stairs, to the first floor, where both bedrooms are situated. One of these has a twin beds, while the other features a double bed. Find a stylish shower room at this level too. Make the most of the outdoor space at this superb holiday home, which includes an enclosed courtyard garden and additional woodland areas, with leafy views, to be found beside a stream, beyond a farm track. The BBQ hut is also available to be enjoyed by guests by prior agreement.


Head 2.5 miles into the pretty village of Trecastle, with its early 11th-century Norma motte and bailey, for a pub lunch, or visit Sennybridge, the same distance away. For more shops, cafes, restaurants and a farmers’ market, venture into Brecon, 11 miles away. Plan day trips in the national park, hiking, mountain biking or indulging in a range of water sports.

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

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.
