A luxury safari lodge set in the Brecon Beacons National Park, with spectacular views across the countryside and farm. An idyllic retreat for families and couples.

This stunning safari lodge, located right in the centre of the Brecon Beacons National Park, provides the excitement of camping with the luxuries you would expect from a hotel; the accommodation even boasts a wood burner and hot tub! Surrounded by hiking opportunities and a vast selection of bike trails, the lodge is perfect for families and couples who love the outdoors. The welcoming village of Talybont-on-Usk is just 1 mile away, and has some fantastic pubs serving traditional local food.

The beautiful lodge has everything you would expect from a stylish house, creating a warm and comfortable place to stay. The open-plan lounge/kitchen has plush leather sofas and a roaring wood burner to snuggle in front of on chilly evenings. In the kitchen, you’ll find everything you need to rustle up a tasty meal, including a gas hob and sink with piping hot water. The bathroom is a self-contained ‘Pitch Pod’ with a WC, hot shower and hand basin. There are also three bedrooms dressed in luxurious Egyptian cotton linen. On summer evenings, make the most of your setting and enjoy a spot of al fresco dining on the veranda, looking out across the fields and woodlands, before slipping into the bubbling hot tub.

There are some beautiful walks to enjoy in the area. For peace and serenity, head to Blaen-y-Glyn (9.5 miles) where you can stroll along the river, past the magnificent waterfalls and sit down for lunch in the picnic area. Llangorse Lake (7 miles) provides a fun day of adventure. As well as wildlife watching, you can get out on the water in your own boat or hire one of the many vessels, including rowing boats, canoes and stand-up paddleboards. Step back in time on the Brecon Mountain Railway (25 miles), where you can majestically cruise through the National Park on a vintage steam locomotive.

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.
