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.

The Brecon Beacons offer miles of breathtaking walks and cycle trails, with local attractions including the remains of the Iron Age fort at Pen-y-Crug (8 miles), Pen y Fan – the highest peak in southern Britain (7.5 miles) and the popular Llangorse Lake (13.5 miles). The thriving market town of Brecon (6.5 miles) has plenty of independent shops and a range of great places to eat and drink, as well as a popular 1930s-style cinema, cathedral, theatre and a leisure centre with swimming pool. You can also explore the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal or visit Talgarth Mill (17 miles), Usk Reservoir (12 miles), Tretower Court and Castle (18.5 miles), Cantref Adventure Farm (9.5 miles) and the popular Cradoc Golf Club (9 miles).

The bright and welcoming lounge/diner is a lovely space to sit back in at the end of a great day. With exposed beams and French doors leading out to the garden, the lounge also features comfortable sofas, a wood burner set in a traditional fireplace and a TV with freeview so you can snuggle up and enjoy a favourite movie. The dining area to the rear of the room is perfect for sharing a special family meal. The farmhouse-style kitchen is a pleasure to prepare meals in, and is fully equipped with an oven, fridge, microwave, plenty of storage space and worktops, as well as a central table which is perfect for breakfast or a quick snack. The nearby utility/boot room has a washing machine, deep freeze and plenty of storage space. The ground floor also features the first of the property’s three bedrooms – a light and relaxing twin room with divan beds. You will also find a ground-floor shower room complete with shower and WC. Going upstairs, there are two further cosy bedrooms, both doubles which are decorated in cool, calming shades. There’s also a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Stepping outside, the enclosed garden is a pretty space for unwinding in and has a choice of outdoor furniture so you can enjoy a morning coffee as you plan the day. The cottage, which was originally built for estate workers in the early 1800s, shares a delightful courtyard with the other properties on the estate. Ample parking is available, and the large fenced paddock is perfect for children to play in safety.

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.
