This picturesque holiday cottage is ideal for couples looking for a simple, tranquil and secluded holiday base, perfect for exploring the hills and mountains of the Brecon Beacons.

Set in a sunny position on the slopes of the Tor-y-Foel Mountain, this comfortable cottage is the ideal base for couples and young families looking to explore the spectacular Brecon Beacons National Park. Picture cosy evenings in front of the wood burner and busy days strolling along beautiful canal paths and through chocolate-box villages, enjoying local delicacies at a variety of friendly pubs and restaurants scattered throughout the area.

Simple yet well-equipped, the property is kept toasty and warm by the crackling wood burner that’s tucked within the stone fireplace. There are sofas and a table for drinking tea and playing board games, and the open-plan living space, down one step, also features a kitchen area with an oven, microwave and a fridge for preparing light suppers. Upstairs, the bedroom has high-beamed ceilings and features a double and a single bed to sleep three guests – two adults and one child. Completing the property is a downstairs bathroom with a shower-over-the-bath. This peaceful setting provides a soothing ambience for sipping your morning coffee on the patio, and the property shares a courtyard with the owner’s organic homestead so you’ll be able to enjoy homegrown seasonal produce when available.

We visited Cae'r Hendre last year and returned because we loved it. Fab owners who are very relaxed. Very peaceful with wonderful walks from the door and a very comfy bed!

Just what we were looking for - comfortable, clean and cosy. Very quiet, beautiful location and friendly hosts. A great base from which to walk & wander. We hope to return soon.

Perfect for our purposes, with plenty of good walking and no need to use the car once we had parked and unpacked.

This is a lovely cottage in the most beautiful part of the Wales countryside. There are some great hikes up into the hills directly from the cottage. Pip and Gil were lovely hosts, very welcoming. They even provided us with some of their own produce to cook for dinner, and showed us around their wonderful garden. We had a great experience and had aRead more very restful and relaxing time.

Despite the wet and windy winter weather I spent a lovely week here. The cottage is in a lovely location and beautifully converted. The owners were friendly and checked I had everything I needed. I didn't want to leave at the end of the week.

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.
