This was a lovely pair of cottages with the flexibility to link as one big cottage. The rooms including bedrooms were all of good size and despite being on a farm it was a nice quite countryside location. The owners Fiona and Bryan were very welcoming and had even arranged for a local hare to visit us in the evenings.

Lovely holiday cottage with beautiful views. The property is isolated with tight lanes to approach it but the views are worth it. If you are after a quiet holiday this is the place for you.

We had a warm welcome from the owner, she also left some lovely goodies. She explained everything clearly. We felt had we had any problems, we could approach her. We loved the cottage, it was well decorated,clean & tidy. It was well equipped throughout,even down to child toilet seats .

Pretty valley, with good weather you could happily just stay on the deck. Plenty of space in the property, easy access to the hills. Narrow country lanes to approach the only drawback, for some, although generally quiet in practice.

Overall we had a great time at the Bull Pens. The buildings and surrounding area are beautiful and secluded. Our host Fiona was helpful and welcoming and showed us how to use the hot tub. Pretty much everything we needed was provided with only a couple of small issues, there was no showers in the two double bedrooms, only in the twins and we couldnRead more't find any extra toilet roll in any of the bathrooms so the supply was quite limited. Overall though I would definitely recommend! Hide

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
