This enchanting property provides a unique experience for friends looking to gather in a pretty waterside setting. The property sleeps up to ten guests and is located between the villages of Llangynidr and Bwlch.

Set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, on the edge of the River Usk, whisk family and friends on a getaway to remember. Welcoming your dogs too, this bolthole has all you need for a magical trip, including an open fire to keep toes and tails warm, games room for fun-filled evenings, and 11 acres of land to explore right from your door.

This bolthole exudes rustic charm and is full of lovely features. In the lounge, traditional 18th-century oak panelling creates a lovely backdrop to the fireplace and large windows let natural light flood inside. Curl up here for a moment of rest before you find yourself in the games room for a lively evening. The kitchen has a classic style, and the small table is perfect to sit at whilst sipping your morning mug of coffee - unless it’s a sunny day, in which case enjoy an al fresco coffee in the garden. While away time and take a seat by the observation window, where the original waterwheel once was, from here you might spot wildlife such as otters and herons. When it’s time for bed, make your way to one of five bedrooms to rest your head for the night. Climb stairs for the master double where an en-suite bathroom with freestanding bathtub invites you to jump in and soak aching muscles. The remaining bedrooms reside on the ground floor, making it easy to whisk yourself off to bed after dinner.

With 11 acres of land to roam close to home, you can spend your days exploring without jumping in the car. The small market town of Crickhowell is a 7-mile journey and is well worth a visit, as is the nearby Table Mountain which offers panoramic views across the national park.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
