Rural cottage with play areas on an organic farm near Brecon, surrounded by peaceful countryside.

If you are in need of a well-deserved break, a holiday in this picturesque cottage on an organic hill farm in Mid Wales could be perfect. Sleeping up to six people and two dogs, it is ideal for family breaks and getaways with friends. Not only extra cosy on the inside, this property is surrounded by picturesque countryside which will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts and nature-lovers of all generations hoping for days on hiking trails, paddling in streams and learning all about eco-living on this organic farm. You can even make friends with the resident Welsh mountain ponies. 

Inside this country cottage, a bright and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner offers a warm welcome. This cottage is as attractive in summer with its large French patio doors as cosy in winter with its toasty wood burner. Prep meals in the well-equipped kitchen and tuck into hearty plates around the indoor dining table or outdoor picnic table. To kick back and relax, just step down one step into the main lounge, which  is spacious and comfortable with three large three seater sofas and a large Smart TV. Here you will also find the main dining table that seats six. Let the competitor come out in you, and challenge your family  or friends to a game of table football, or pass the time away playing one of the many board games available. There is also a good selection of puzzles for you to use.

Just off the main lounge, three steps up, take you in to a comfortable and spacious bedroom, with a zip-and-link super king-size bed, which has a British wool mattress. All duvets and pillows in Bryniau Pell are made from recycled plastic. This bedroom has its own wet room style shower room with a double headed shower, WC and sink.

Upstairs you will find a  traditional double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a nursery with two cots. The family bathroom has a shower over the p-shaped bath and WC.

On sunny days, it’ll be tempting to stay home and make use of the BBQ and outdoor play area, but there is also plenty going on nearby and bike, stargazing and birdwatching equipment are all available for use and hire. Explore the 220 acres of farmland and woodland, discover Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark (9 miles), hike Pen y Fan (15.5 miles) and dine in Brecon market town (14 miles). For something rather leisurely, there are plenty of gentle walks nearby, including a 1-mile stroll alongside Cray Reservoir (2 miles).

The cottage was immaculate. It has everything you would ever want or need. It even came complete with freshly baked Welsh cakes. Couldn't have asked for me. Will definitely visit again and can't recommend enough.

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.
