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.

The cottage, which was once part of Buckland Hall Estate, overlooks the secluded Buckland parklands towards the River Usk and boasts breathtaking scenery from the spacious veranda and many of the rooms inside the house. Beautifully renovated to a very high standard, the property offers the perfect peaceful getaway for friends or families looking for a tranquil spot. The quaint village of Talybont-on-Usk is located 3 miles away and boasts pretty rivers, a canal, reservoir, several pubs, a restaurant, shop, and local arts and craft to peruse.

Inside, the spacious open-plan kitchen/dining area has been decorated in a country-cottage style with solid wooden features and a modern kitchen with a central island. This makes the space absolutely perfect for socialising and enjoying meals together. You will find everything you need here to prepare fresh and tasty food including an electric oven, five-ring hob and a dining table that can seat eight diners. There’s also a cosy seating area here with comfortable sofas and lovely views of the rural surroundings outside. The lounge has a large five-seater sofa, TV with Freeview and a DVD player, and a wood burner for relaxed evenings in. There are four bedrooms – one downstairs twin bedroom which can become a double by arrangement – and three upstairs bedrooms that all share the same classic but modern style that is both homely and stylish. The first upstairs bedroom is a super-king-size master room, and there is also another super-king-size room which has a low doorway through to a nursery room with two cots. There is also a bunk bedroom that’s suitable for children only. Two bathrooms (one upstairs and one downstairs) complete the accommodation.

The property continues to shine when it comes to its outdoor spaces. To the front of the cottage, you will find a veranda with a bench, patio table and chairs. The views from here are nothing short of breathtaking and can be enjoyed in the warmer months both day and night. Sunsets and stars will never look the same after viewing them from this special spot. To the side of the property, there is a quirky woodland garden that features a tree swing, picnic bench, and treehouse – a magical spot that’s ideal for both children and adults alike. There is plenty of private parking available outside too.

  • 4 bedrooms: 1 twin which can be made into a double by arrangement, 2 super-king-size bedrooms, 1 bedroom with bunk beds (children only)

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.
