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 (8 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.
