This exceptional four-bedroom cottage forms the perfect base for families and friends. Situated in a beautiful rural location, there are lots of wonderful scenic landscapes available to explore.

Sitting amidst the trees, with views reaching far across the countryside, this stunning cottage is perfect for friends and families who love the great outdoors. Brimming with classic cottage-style charm, cosy spots and fun outdoor play areas, enjoy days out and about in the national park before returning home for sociable, fun-filled evenings or some peace and quiet.

Arrive at this welcoming bolthole and admire the gorgeous interior, fun play area and beautiful veranda. The open-plan living area means you can keep an eye on smaller guests as they run free whilst whipping up tasty treats in the kitchen/diner, or you can hide away in the lounge and put your feet up by the comforting wood burner. Light, bright and with plenty of warmth, this space is the heart of the home and is great for sociable dinner times and communal cups of tea. If the days are warm, make your way onto the veranda where you can enjoy meals and sip a tipple or two come nightfall. Children have their very own play area, complete with treehouse and swing, to keep them entertained before hitting the pillow. One bedroom resides on the ground floor whilst the rest are located on the first floor. Furnished with cosy blankets, cushions and calming tones, the bedrooms are tranquil places to rest your head before you wake up and freshen up in one of two bathrooms where you can enjoy a soak in the bath.

The picturesque village of Talybont-on-Usk is less than 3 miles from your door and offers a range of lovely shops, pubs and waterfalls to visit. Make a 6.5-mile trip to the largest natural lake in South Wales, Llangorse. Opt to stay dry or take to the water and try your hand at some thrilling water sports.

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.
