Property code: BN079

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.

This delightful cottage is set on the sunny side of Tor-y-Foel mountain, a beautiful spot within the Brecon Beacons National Park. The Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls are just 11 miles away, and the pretty village of Llangynidr (2.5 miles along the lane) has a couple of good pubs. The Monmouth and Brecon Canal passes through the village, raised on its way by five locks. This beautiful area is ideal for boat trips, bike rides, steam train journeys and long country walks – the fairy glen walk along the river is truly magical. With Crickhowell just 7 miles away, the cottage is ideally situated for reaching Brecon (12 miles) and attractions including Llangorse Lake (8 miles) and Tretower Castle (5.5 miles).

The entrance to the cottage provides useful storage space for boots, bikes and coats. A step down takes you into the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner - a lovely space to relax in. At the end of the day you can curl up on the sofa in front of the wood burner, which is set in an impressive stone fireplace, and catch up with a good book or watch a movie on the TV/DVD. There’s also a choice of board games and jigsaws. You can share a favourite meal in the dining area by the window. The kitchen area has all of the essentials including an oven, microwave and fridge. The bathroom is also on the ground floor, complete with a shower over the bath and a WC. Going upstairs, the charming, light and spacious bedroom features a double bed, a single bed ideal for a child, a choice of artwork and exposed oak ceiling beams.

Stepping outside, you can sit back with a glass of wine in the evening and admire the far-reaching views from the pretty patio area. The cottage is set in a delightful secluded mountainside location which shares a courtyard with the owner’s organic homestead, so you can enjoy the peace without being totally isolated. You can also take advantage of the home-grown organic fruit, herbs and vegetables when in season.

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

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.
