Nestling in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons, this traditional 17th-century stone farmhouse offers light, cosy and relaxing accommodation for a family looking to explore this spellbinding region.

At the foothills of the Brecon Beacons is this traditional 17th-century stone farmhouse. Cosy yet light and airy, this property retains plenty of original features inside, while the delightful courtyard and enclosed garden is perfect for dogs, children and enjoying al fresco meals. When you’re not challenging fellow guests to a game of snooker in the games room, take on the mighty Pen y Fan (5.5 miles), enjoy a ride on the Brecon Mountain Railway or explore the market town of Brecon.

 

Tastefully modernised, this farmhouse retains much of its original charm through its large fireplace, exposed beams and Welsh stonework. A traditional kitchen offers ample surface and storage space for rustling up delicious family meals after long days on foot. Once prepared, tuck into family feasts in the formal dining area before firing up the wood burner and sinking into one of the inviting sofas for the evening. At the top of an open-tread staircase, two cosy bedrooms are decorated in elegant neutral tones with exposed beams, slanting ceilings and wonderful rural views. Step outside to dine alfresco in the courtyard while dogs explore the enclosed garden, or make use of the games room with its Wii, PlayStation 3, telescope, table tennis and much more.

 

An ideal starting point for long strolls in the Brecon Beacons, this property is a haven for walkers and four-legged friends alike. Explore Pen y Fan, Pen y Crug (7 miles) and the Usk Reservoir (14 miles) on foot or climb aboard the Brecon Mountain Railway to take in the scenery in a more leisurely fashion. Head underground as you visit the National Showcaves Centre (15.5 miles) or enjoy a family day out at the Cantref Adventure Farm (8.5 miles).

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

We (family of four plus dog) had a lovely weeks stay at Carno farmhouse. The property itself is characterful, comfortable and spacious with a lovely garden and idyllic views. Lots of walks through woods, alongside streams and up hills from the door which was great as a dog owner. Lucy (owner who lives opposite) was very welcoming and helpful yet reRead morespected out privacy. All in all I would definitely recommend to others for a perfect get away. Hide

Everything was splendid. The welcome, the cottage, and even the weather! So many things to like in this quirky, well-equipped cottage including a visiting woodpecker on the bird feeder.

The farmhouse is a real gem. A quirky old cottage but with all the modern conveniences you need. The location is fantastic for peace and quiet with amazing views. The garden is truly tranquil and completely secure for dogs. The owner was extremely kind, friendly and helpful and having her living on site was very reassuring.

A comfortable and characterful cottage with lovely decorative touches. The location is perfect for walking, particularly if you have a dog. I loved the fact that the helpful owner was nearby. We enjoyed relaxing by the stove (logs included) in the evenings, and the games room was a real bonus. The bird life was amazing and we enjoyed sitting on theRead more patio with only the sound of wildlife. A real gem. Hide

Fantastic location, great views all around. Perfect for exploring the Fells including Pen-Y-Fan, Corn Du, Cribyn and Fan-Y-Big. A short drive to the town of Brecon is perfect if you forget any supplies. The four falls walk is only 20 mins drive away. Would recommend this quaint, Welsh Farmhouse!!

Reviewed by Mrs Harris October 2020

Situated up a minor side road this peaceful and well-equipped cottage was just what we needed - warm and cosy with a very comfortable bed. Great walks and cycle rides from the door - we had a lovely time despite pretty mixed weather. We'd love to come again!

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.
