With ample space for 13 guests, this bright and welcoming property on the outskirts of Brecon makes a great holiday home for a family celebration or for a group of friends enjoying a weekend break.

Gather up your loved ones and treat them to a holiday they’ll cherish forever at this attractive six-bedroom property. Located in Brecon town in the Brecon Beacons, up to 13 guests and their two tufty-pawed friends can relish an invigorating getaway in a superb location. Less than 0.5 miles from the market town’s eateries, shops and culture spots and surrounded by the untamed beauty of the National Park, everyone from outdoor adventurers to wildlife lovers to urbanites will love this retreat.

The ideal holiday cottage for large groups celebrating a special occasion or gathering for an overdue get-together, this spacious property has multi-generational appeal. As perfect for summer retreats with its large patio and BBQ area as for winter escapes with its reception rooms and family-friendly games room, there will never be a dull moment. The heart of the home, the generous kitchen/diner is equipped with plenty of space for food prep and a sweeping dining table with enough room for the pack. Pass around plates of food and pop bottles before letting the dishwasher take care of the dirty work and heading to the lounge for long hours of chatter, toasting toes in front of the flame-effect gas fire. Ensuring everyone can savour some rest, the property has six bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

Enjoying pride of place in Brecon, the cottage’s proximity to local hotspots will be a real draw. Wander the historic streets and visit the museum, cathedral and host of independent shops and galleries. Making use of the property’s space to wash and store mountain bikes, a ride along the Taff Trail or Lôn Las Cymru will also be a must. For peaceful walks, visit Llangorse Lake (6.5 miles) or Talgarth Mill (10 miles), or for something a little more challenging, hike to Pen y Fan (6.5 miles).

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.
