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

This idyllic retreat with quirky historic features is set in quiet peaceful countryside, yet just a mile from the A40 and 2.5 miles from the old railway town of Sennybridge. It’s perfectly placed for a group of friends, or sporty families with older children who want to enjoy the best outdoor adventures in Wales. The riverside market town of Brecon (11 miles) is also worth visiting for its array of attractions in all weathers, including a leisure centre, a 1930’s-style cinema, a theatre, farmers’ market, and a plethora of shops and eateries. Watersports can be found at Llangorse Lake (15 miles), while Talybont (16 miles) attracts walkers, cyclists, and visitors to its popular pub restaurant.

Step inside this welcoming farmhouse where stylish interiors include an open plan living and dining room with original features from handsome timber beam vaults, and large traditional radiators to an inglenook fireplace housing a contemporary wood burner. Sink into the squishy leather sofas after a long hike and enjoy film nights on the TV with Freeview and DVD player. Enjoy family feasts and boardgames at the large sturdy dining table. There are two stone steps into the well-equipped kitchen which features an electric oven and induction hob, a large fridge/freezer, a microwave, washing machine, and dishwasher, plus an open hatch on to the dining room, great for serving or chatting about recipes from the living area. Steep but carpeted cottage style stairs with a handrail lead up to a large landing with storage space, a shower room, plus two bedrooms with beautiful furnishings and crisp linens, a king-size bedroom (zip-and-link bed), and a cosy double bedroom.

Stable doors lead out from the kitchen and dining areas to a small enclosed courtyard garden with garden furniture, and a grassy area beside a stream, great if your hounds have joined you on holiday. The garden extends across a farm track to a stream, with woodland and seating areas and views across the valley to woods and hills beyond. The owners live in separate accommodation at the back of the cottage and are there to help if needed. A fun BBQ hut is also available by arrangement for guests.

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.
