  • Footpath straight from the house leading to The Black Mountains and Hay Bluff
  • Close to Hay-on-Wye – home to the Hay Festival
Property code: BN066

This spacious Victorian property is located close to the centre of Hay-on-Wye – a charming market town that boasts a number of independent bookshops, boutiques, pubs and cafes. It's ideal for an unforgettable group holiday.

Perfectly located for exploring the magical Brecon Beacons National Park, this charming bolthole sits close to the heart of Hay-on-Wye. Famed for its literary festival and plethora of bookshops, Hay-on-Wye is a quaint, bustling town home to lots of eateries and close to many tracks such as the Offa’s Dyke Path or Wye Valley Walk. Pack your bags and escape to this welcoming abode with family and friends.


Step inside and make your way through the entrance porch where you can leave muddy boots fresh from a walk. Once inside, choose from the two lounges to cosy up in. The first lounge has an original ornamental fireplace and is flooded with natural light making it a great place to unwind in front of the TV or find a moment of peace and quiet. The second lounge has a comfortable sofa and chair and, again, is a naturally light space in which to relax. Cook up a storm in the spacious kitchen which has plenty of room for everyone to help out at mealtimes; a dishwasher to make light work of clearing up. Seating four, the breakfast table is great for gathering around with a cup of tea – you can also sit around the table in the dining room for sociable dinner times. Climb the stairs to rest your head in one of four tranquil bedrooms; the twin bedroom with sloping ceilings is found by climbing a further set of stairs to the attic.


After spending time in the large, enclosed garden complete with furniture for al fresco dining, wander into the local town and browse the shops and eateries. A 6-mile trip will take you to Hay Bluff, a majestic hill sitting at the northern edge of the Black Mountains; climb the summit for breathtaking views and the perfect picnic spot.

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.
