Property code: BN076

In the centre of the picturesque village of Llangynidr, this bright, cosy and relaxing bungalow makes a wonderful holiday home for a family exploring the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park.

Imagine an idyllic countryside break in a chocolate-box village surrounded by spectacular scenery and stay in this single-level property. Nestled within the attractive village of Llangynidr, you’ll be well placed for enjoying delicious meals at one of two welcoming pubs and enjoying long walks along the River Usk and the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. This simply presented yet comfortable accommodation awaits after a day of adventures, offering a peaceful retreat for families or older guests with a love of the outdoors.

Wake up to the sound of birdsong and gather for breakfast in the bright kitchen, recharging your batteries with locally sourced eggs and bacon from the village shop. On chilly evenings you can snuggle up in the lounge with hot chocolate and films before retiring for the night to one of three bedrooms, including a quirky double that once served as the old village post office and still retains the original counter. Two bathrooms complete the property, providing a choice between a family bathroom and a handy shower room with a shower compartment accessed via one step. Outside, the pretty garden is a tranquil spot for sipping your morning coffee and reading the papers.

Take a stroll through the village to investigate the historic church, or lace-up your boots and set off along the canal path in the direction of Crickhowell. The route is 5.5 miles long and one of the most scenic towpaths in the UK, so be sure to bring your camera to snap some impressive pictures of the landscape and resident wildlife. Once you reach Crickhowell, you will be rewarded with stunning views of the Usk Valley and the Black Mountains beyond as you visit the pretty shops, friendly inns and historic landmarks.

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

Bungalow was very comfortable. Very clean throughout and one of the best equipped accommodations we have stayed in. Cynthia who takes care of the accommodation was very friendly and helpful. Together with the beautiful surroundings it was a perfect break.

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.
