Just a few miles from the peak of Pen y Fan, this former carpenter’s shop has been lovingly converted to offer cosy and welcoming accommodation for couples exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park.

This is a fantastic base for exploring the Brecon Beacons, with the Visitor Centre (2 miles) and Storey Arms Activity Centre (3.5 miles) both within easy reach. Walkers can head off to Pen y Fan (6 miles) or explore the remains of the Iron Age fort at Pen-y-Crug (6 miles). Also within easy reach are the Cantref Adventure Farm (7.5 miles), Maen Llia (7 miles), Llangorse Lake (11.5 miles) and Usk Reservoir (13 miles). You will be able to find refreshment in the local villages of Libanus (0.5 miles) and Defynnog (5 miles). The popular market town of Brecon (5 miles) has plenty of great shops, pubs and restaurants, a 1930s-style cinema, cathedral and a theatre.

Entering this lovely property, which features whitewashed stone walls, wooden flooring and exposed wooden beams, you will find yourself in the delightful lounge. This is a lovely space to unwind in at the end of a wonderful day, complete with a comfortable sofa and chairs, SkyTV and a pretty cart arch window allowing light to flood in. A couple of steps lead up to the dining room which is perfect for a romantic meal for two. The kitchen has an oven, microwave, fridge and freezer so you can prepare your favourite meals. The ground floor also has a bathroom with a bath and WC. The fairly steep cottage-style staircase leads directly up into the bright and spacious bedroom. This relaxing room has exposed beams and a vaulted ceiling, with a comfortable double bed, TV and a futon which can be made up for an additional guest. From the bed there’s a view through the windows so you can stargaze into the night.

Outside, you can enjoy a morning coffee in the small courtyard area which has a table, chairs and a BBQ. Parking is available for one car on the cobbles by the front door.

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.
