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.

Dating back to the 1890s, this Victorian property is located just 500 metres from Hay-on-Wye town centre which has an “olde worlde” atmosphere. It boasts a fantastic antique market and a farmers’ market each Thursday where you can shop around for a variety of local produce. Active visitors can explore The Black Mountains or the Hay Bluff which can be accessed straight from the property and there is local mountain bike hire too if you prefer your adventures on two wheels. For a dose of culture, why not visit Hay Castle which has been recently restored. For stunning views, it’s worth taking the car a little further (22 miles) to Brecon Beacons National Park, famed for its beautiful scenery and gorgeous walks.

As you enter this property through the little entrance porch, you will discover an original quarry tiled floor and a handy space where you can leave your muddy hiking boots and shoes. There are two separate lounge areas which make the property ideal for large families and friends holidaying together. The first lounge has been decorated in warm tones with comfortable leather sofas and an original fireplace. Here you will find a TV with a DVD player to keep the family entertained during the evenings. The second smaller lounge space has a wonderful tiled floor, plus a sofa and chair where you can sit back and unwind. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you would need for a self-catering holiday: electric range cooker, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and a kitchen table with chairs. There is a separate dining room should you wish to gather together for a hearty breakfast to start the day or a sociable evening meal. The four bedrooms are located upstairs: a master king-size bedroom, one double room, and one room with a super-king-size bed which can be made into twin beds on request. The top-floor attic room is accessed via a narrow set of steps and has twin beds; from here, you will find the most spectacular views across the Wye Valley. There is a toilet on the ground floor, and a family bathroom and separate shower room on the first floor; the family bathroom is lucky enough to have a bath and waterfall shower – a wonderful treat after a long day’s hiking.

The large enclosed garden has plenty of lawn space where you can sit and relax on one of the two picnic benches or enjoy a chilled glass of wine on the little patio which overlooks the whole garden. This outside space with BBQ is a nice, safe area for families and gives you al fresco dining opportunity during the warmer months. There is plenty of parking space here too.

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.
