One of two lovely converted barns close to the Brecon Beacons. A relaxing rural aspect, amongst unspoilt fields. Contemporary interior with a great lay out and a short drive from attractions and towns.

Set in a tranquil spot a few miles west of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this cottage makes a fabulous getaway for two. Providing an idyllic holiday retreat for a couple seeking a relaxing escape, this stylishly updated barn conversion is surrounded by glorious rural scenery. Retaining some exposed ceiling beams, this cottage has been beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished throughout. Perfect for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers, it occupies a charming spot on a smallholding and is perfect for exploring the area. Originally a pigsty, this stunningly converted property features a fully equipped kitchen/diner which makes a lovely space for sharing a romantic meal for two. A few steps lead up into the cosy lounge – perfect for snuggling up with a movie or a good book in front of the warming wood burner-effect electric fire which complements the underfloor heating. Heading up to the first floor, you will find the charmingly decorated and spacious king-size bedroom with exposed beams in the vaulted ceiling. The bedroom also has the benefit of an invigorating en-suite bathroom. Outside, the generous enclosed garden has a furnished patio ideal for a BBQ or al fresco drinks. The cottage is just a mile from the friendly village of Cwmdu which has a welcoming pub and well-stocked shop, and makes a wonderful base for exploring the Brecon Beacons. To the south, the bustling market town of Llandeilo (7 miles) offers a wide choice of restaurants, cafes and pubs. Local landmarks and attractions include the remains of Talley Abbey overlooking Upper Talley Lake (1 mile), Dinefwr Castle and Newton House (both in Dinefwr National Nature Reserve – 9 miles), Carreg Cennen Castle, Aberglasney Gardens, Herbert’s Quarry and the National Botanic Garden of Wales (all within 16 miles).

The cottage is lovely and in an idyllic position, it has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. It was lovely to sit in the private garden and see the owners two horses wandering around the field. Chris and Les are really welcoming and have a wealth of knowledge for the area.

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.
