This pretty stone cottage is located just 6 miles from the wonderful market town of Brecon and 12 miles from Hay-on-Wye. With plenty of outdoor pursuits and quaint villages on your doorstep, it’s absolutely perfect for families.

This traditional property offers a comfortable home-from-home experience and the owners have won the Cyclists Welcome Award and Walkers Welcome Award from Visit Wales – an award that has been put in place for properties that are well-suited for both cyclists and walkers who require things like maps and guidebooks, storage space for clothes and bicycles, and an outside tap for cleaning equipment. Explore the majesty of Brecon Beacons or the market town of Brecon itself with its cathedral, Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh, independent shops, pubs, and restaurants.


The barn will appeal to those who are looking for a traditional country-cottage experience. As you enter the lounge, you will find a spacious room with a traditional oak-beamed ceiling and stone fireplace. Here you can relax on one of the many comfortable sofas or chairs whilst enjoying the views from the French doors. There’s a dining table here that can seat up to six guests. The kitchen area boasts a pretty tiled floor and has ample storage and everything you will need to prepare a family meal. Completing the ground floor is a shower room with WC. Fairly narrow stairs lead to four bedrooms: two single rooms and two en-suite king-size rooms. The master bedroom has a balcony with French doors, an en-suite bathroom, and interlinked doors to the adjacent single bedroom. There is also a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.


The French doors from the inside of the property lead directly onto the patio area which has furniture where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine. The uninterrupted views from here are magnificent, overlooking the rolling hills and distant mountains. Stargazing from this spot is guaranteed to be unforgettable. There’s an enclosed paddock and field for exercising dogs and a large paddock housing the owner’s horses. Stabling is available and there are miles of common land to explore close to the barn.

Buttercup Barn was fantastic. Very spacious, comfortable and with everything we needed for our week's holiday. We even had great weather to enjoy the beautiful view of the beacons

Reviewed by Mrs Franklin August 2020

Was as lovely as in the photo's. Appreciated layout, well equipped kitchen, clean (no sign of previous dogs!) And owners next door were helpful when we had a few q's. Good location for our walking vacation, back to wonderful showers and bath! Will be returning

The house was nicely decorated and furnished with a well equipped kitchen and utility room. The views from garden were lovely and Ian and Carole were very welcoming and helpful.

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.
