Part of a delightful smallholding situated in a picturesque spot, this peaceful barn conversion makes a relaxing holiday home for a couple discovering the wonderful Brecon Beacons National Park.

The cottage lies in a secluded spot just outside the tranquil village of Lower Chapel (within a quarter of a mile) and close to Pwllgloyw (1.5 miles) where you will find a friendly pub. Also nearby is Cradoc Golf Club (4 miles) where you can enjoy a drink and a meal in the popular clubhouse. To the south is the bustling market town of Brecon (5 miles) which is known for its historic cathedral, 1930s-style cinema, beautiful canal walks and an array of independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Activities in the region include canoeing, climbing and horse-riding. Other local attractions include Llangorse Lake (12 miles), Pen y Fan (11.5 miles), Pen-y-Crug (6 miles) and Cantref Adventure Farm (9 miles).

Entering this bright and coolly decorated cottage you will find yourself in the cheerful, light and attractive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The pretty lounge area is an ideal space for relaxation at the end of a lovely day, complete with TV, plenty of comfortable seating and a welcoming wood burner. There’s also a delightful dining area, and the kitchen is fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge. The washing machine is stored in the nearby utility room. There is also a ground-floor shower room complete with shower and WC. Steep open-tread paddle stairs lead up directly into the spacious attic bedroom. This beautiful room features a double bed and an additional Futon bed, seating, skylights and exposed ceiling beams. Please note the room is set in the eaves of the house so the ceiling does slope very low.

Heading outside, the beautiful garden features a lawn and a charming enclosed courtyard with shrubs, garden furniture and a BBQ, providing the ideal space for enjoying a meal alfresco at the end of a memorable day. There are also mown grassy tracks leading through the meadows down to a stream.

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.
