A pretty granary sleeping up to four guests, boasting a wonderful location in the scenic valleys of Brecon Beacons National Park. Ideal for families or friends sharing.

Part of the original farmhouse at Dan-y-Crug farm, this cottage exudes charm and is great for families and friends with a love for the great outdoors. A peaceful setting with pretty grounds to explore, you’re not far from the hustle and bustle of Brecon (3 miles), a market town with lots to do, eat and see.

Enter the first-floor, open-plan living space via an iron staircase and make yourself comfortable in the lounge. This spacious room is decorated with floral furnishings, creating a calm and tranquil space in which to put your feet up and relax. Light and bright, the kitchen has plenty of workspace for everyone to lend a helping hand at mealtimes. Plate up at the sociable dining table, or enjoy an al fresco dinner on the patio, shared with other properties on-site, and bask in the late sunshine. After dinner, take a tipple and meander your way down to the stream which flows through the grounds before returning inside to rest weary heads. Settle down for the night in either the double or twin room and drift off to sleep. The double has charming, exposed beams and both rooms are decorated with a country-cottage style. Freshen up in the shower room before heading out to explore.

Take children on a walk around the farm after liaising with the owners as to the whereabouts of their livestock, and enjoy mornings close to home. Summit the towering top of Pen-y-Fan, 9 miles from home, the highest peak in South Wales which offers panoramic views. Llangorse Lake is a 10-mile trip and is the largest natural lake in South Wales; enjoy a waterside wander or make the most of the exciting activity centres nearby.

Not a separate or independent property - small part of the main house, but peaceful location.

Buttercup Granary is a lovely location for those who enjoy being in the heart of the countryside. We could see lambs playing from our bedroom window and there are beautiful walks on the doorstep.

With the current circumstances of covid 19 it was a perfect place to get away. When restrictions on mixing and gatherings is over, it would be to remote for us. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
