This beautifully updated 19th-century cottage is located on a country estate in the middle of the Brecon Beacons and makes a wonderful holiday home for a family looking to enjoy a tranquil break.

On a country estate in the middle of the Brecon Beacons, this beautifully updated 19th-century cottage makes a wonderful holiday home for a family of walkers and four-legged friends. One of four traditional properties which can be booked together for family celebrations, this cottage is brimming with charm and original features inside, with an enclosed garden and shared courtyard outside. While keen walkers take on the mighty Pen y Fan (5.5 miles), others can spend a day on the water at Llangorse Lake (13.5 miles) or browse the independent shops and eateries of Brecon (6.5 miles).

Inside, this period cottage retains much of its original charm through exposed stone walls, an inglenook fireplace, wooden beams and cottage windows. The traditional kitchen is light and airy with plenty of space for preparing delicious family meals, with a table in the centre for breakfast or a quick snack. Evening meals, however, are best enjoyed in the lounge/diner, where you will also find a wonderful wood burner set in a traditional fireplace – perfect for warming up after a long day on foot. When it’s time for bed, you’ll find one twin bedroom on the ground floor, alongside a shower room, while a further two doubles and a bathroom are upstairs. Stepping outside, the enclosed garden is a pretty space in which to relax and unwind with a drink as the sun goes down.

Offering miles of breathtaking walks and cycle trails, the Brecon Beacons National Park is also home to the highest mountain in southern Britain, Pen y Fan. Once you have conquered the peak and taken in the stunning views along the way, head for Llangorse Lake for a thrilling day of watersports or enjoy a peaceful walk along the meandering Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. The thriving market town of Brecon offers a good choice of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, as well as a popular 1930s-style cinema, cathedral, theatre and leisure centre.

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

I would have awarded 5 stars but there were a couple of issues we had - the most serious of which was the complete lack of WIFI. It was a requisite of our booking and caused us great inconvenience and disappointment. I could not wish my grandson in Australia a Happy Birthday ! We were thinking about booking again for next year but if we cannot trRead moreust it........... Special thank you to Anna Chambers - she was exceptionally sympathetic and helpful. Hide

Lovely well equipped cottage. Great log burner. Fridge could do with replacing in kitchen, and decor could do with a little bit of TLC, and you could not adjust the water temperature in downstairs shower which became very hot at times. Kitchen, bathroom, toilets spotless. Apart from these minor details, we had a lovely Christmas break with all tRead morehe family, as we booked this cottage, along with Fern and Ivy. Beautiful surroundings and walks. Would certainly recommend. Hide

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.
