Within easy reach of the Brecon Beacons’ famous mountains, including Skirrid, Sugar Loaf, and The Black Mountains, this cosy cottage is perfect for active couples looking to escape.

Set among the lush green meadows of the Monmouthshire countryside, this cosy bolthole next to the owner’s home offers a scenic escape from the bustle of everyday life. But as the cottage is only 3 miles from Abergavenny, you won’t be too far away from the action should you want shops, cultural attractions and nightlife. Nature lovers will be spoilt for choice for walks in the Brecon Beacons, while foodies will also be in their element as Abergavenny is famous for its annual food festival, as well as pubs and restaurants offering superb dining options all year round.

The valley views from the comfortable lounge/diner are enough to keep you mesmerised all day, but you’ll get an even better natural spectacle from the private patio tucked away at the back of the cottage. Get your morning off to the best possible start with an al fresco breakfast on the raised decked area – weather permitting of course. Before you know it, you’ll have whiled away a whole morning here, watching the sheep grazing in the neighbouring fields and birds soaring overhead. Upstairs, the tastefully decorated double bedroom has its own shower room, so you can step straight in when you rise and shine.

If you can tear yourself away from the cottage, pull on your walking boots and hike to the summit of Skirrid mountain. Remember to take a jacket with you as it can be quite breezy at the top! There are lots of options for more gentle walks in the Brecon Beacons National Park too, making this a fantastic place to explore whatever your age or ability. For a nostalgic day out, hop aboard the Blaenavon Heritage Railway (11 miles), which also stops off at the world-famous Big Pit National Coal Museum.

We had a peaceful stay. Enjoyed the villages nearby and fantastic views/surroundings.


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.
