Offering superb panoramic views across the Brecon Beacons, this delightful, refreshing and brightly decorated loft conversion makes a lovely holiday home for a couple exploring this stunning area.

Set in the grounds of the owner's country house, this property provides a beautiful base for enjoying long country walks. You can take a stroll in the neighbouring field, share a picnic and spot the red kites, woodpeckers and jays flying overhead. Local attractions include the remains of ancient Brecon Y Gaer and Pen-y Crug forts (3.5 miles), Llangorse Lake (11 miles) and Talgarth Mill (12 miles). The friendly market town of Brecon (4 miles) is set in the lee of the mountains with the rivers Usk and Honddu running through it. Brecon has a host of great places to eat and drink as well as a cathedral, a 1930s-style cinema, an excellent theatre, a range of shops and a leisure centre complete with swimming pool.

This delightful loft conversion is part of the original 18th-century farmhouse which was once home to the Morgan family, who set up the popular Morgans department store in Cardiff. The property is set in the grounds of the owner’s country house and is approached via a private drive. This fresh and relaxing loft conversion can be reached via an external flight of stone steps with wrought iron railings over the owner’s garage. Entering the property, you will find the comfortable and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which features sloping ceilings and a choice of interesting artwork. The lounge is a lovely space to relax in, with TV, DVD, CD and a wood burner so you can snuggle up in the evening. The dining area is perfect for a quiet meal for two, and the kitchen is equipped with an oven, microwave, dishwasher and a fridge with an ice compartment. Exploring the property further, there are two cosy and brightly decorated bedrooms: an attractively furnished double room and a pretty single room. There’s also a bathroom complete with a shower over the corner bath and a WC. The utility room is set downstairs to the rear of the property and houses the freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, making an ideal space for leaving wet coats and muddy boots.

Going outside, there’s a charming patio area at the top of the steps. Furnished with table and chairs, this is a perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening and take in the far-reaching rural views. You will also have access to the adjoining field which is perfect for a picnic or a stroll. Ample parking is available, and there’s safe storage for mountain bikes.

Julie and Dave are so welcoming. We had a lovely stay. Beautiful setting to relax and chill. Thinking of writing a book, this is the place to do it.

Very clean and everything you could need for a great holiday. Fresh eggs and a very welcome basket of local goodies greeted us. Sitting on the balcony with a view of the Brecon Beacons was perfect.

Lovely cottage in a very remote location which is perfect for quiet evenings and good sleep. Everything was great inside thou a little cluttered with knick-knack's! And I would recommend the shower head being replace (I have a electric shower myself and a new head does wonders, yes I'm very fussy about showers) Entire place was really clean aRead morend airy, glad to see nice touch of fans in one room and upgraded TV to digital and Netflix compatible :) Little disappointing there were not pillow or mattress protectors but apart from that slept well after every day out on the mountains. All in all I would stay here again, great value, clean and excellent location. Hide

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.
