The views from this property are simply awe-inspiring and stretch 70 miles across the Wye Valley, the Hertfordshire countryside and Mid Wales. This handsome cottage will suit couples, families or friends who are looking to explore scenic trails, quaint villages and historic towns. The property is located approximately 4 miles from Hay-on-Wye which is a famous for its independent bookshops.

Active guests will enjoy the numerous walking paths and bike trails that run close to the cottage too.

This property provides everything you would wish for in an 18th-century cottage. The comfortable lounge features cosy low ceilings with rustic oak beams, sofas to relax into after a long day out walking, a TV with DVD player, and a wood burner. There is a second lounge with a beautiful tiled floor, oak windows that frame fantastic views, a second wood burner, dining table, and a sofa bed if required.

You will find two twin rooms (one of which is suitable for children) and a double bedroom. The downstairs bathroom has a bath with shower over.

This cottage is set in an idyllic location that looks beautiful whatever the season and whilst many of the views can be admired from the inside of the house, the best views are always outside. The pretty garden of this property has picnic tables, benches and a BBQ overlooking the stunning countryside. Dine al fresco or simply sit, relax and soak up the scenery that stretches as far as the eye can see.

Value for money without question. Good map, good directions, majestic views, homely interior, very important that it was as quiet as we found it, great place to relax and unwind, easy to get to Hay-on-Wye for supplies.

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.
