Ideally located by the canal, with lovely views and walks to be enjoyed, close to a host of interesting towns, with festivals and events all year round.

Stay at this superb cottage on the banks of the canal in Croes-y-Pant, ideal for groups of four friends or a family keen to explore the pretty countryside and the Brecon Beacons National Park. Situated close to amenities yet still benefiting from a rural location, you’ll have the best of both worlds from this stunning home. Better yet, two dogs are welcome to join you at your Welsh retreat. This semi-detached property is set on one level and has recently been refurbished to a high standard. The bright and airy kitchen has everything you need to cook up a storm, and a dining table has seating for all guests. Take a seat on the comfortable sofas, fire up the wood burner and watch a film on the Smart TV. Both bedrooms are sumptuous and have handmade bed frames. To the rear of the property is an enclosed patio with garden furniture, and a gateway leads down to the canal, a perfect spot for a walk. Tucked in between two small villages, this is a lovely, picturesque spot with access to an abundance of walking routes. The pretty canal is a great place for a scenic walk - head to Goytre Wharf to hire a boat. The nearest pub is just 2 miles away and the bustling market town, Abergavenny, is 8 miles away. Crickhowell (13.5 miles) has a ruined castle and a further range of places to eat and drink. The Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Brecon Beacons National Park are both nearby too.

Lovely location for canal walks with your dog, and drives to the Brecons. Warm and clean. Only downside was lack of equipment which can easily be fixed. Small things like a tea towel and washing up liquid, kitchen roll and tea bags! Overall good value for money. Just hope the owners take note of suggestions.

Canalside Cottage is brilliant. You cannot fault the comfort, spaciousness and cleanliness of the cottage itself. The location is tranquil. A couple of minutes walk to the beautiful surroundings of the canal towpath. To add perfection the dogs can go too. I would certainly recommend this cottage.

Location

Map
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.
