With spectacular views of the Brecon Beacons National Park and just 1 mile from Cilycwm village, this charming holiday cottage is perfectly located for exploring. Great for small families or couples.

Brimming with charm and creature comforts, this cosy bolthole is perfectly suited for small families or couples to enjoy a break in the gorgeous Welsh countryside. With mountain views to savour and a plethora of trails to walk, cycle and explore, you’ll be glad to kick back beneath characterful beams in the welcoming lounge after days in the great outdoors.

Make your way inside this traditional stone cottage and make yourself at home. The kitchen has all you need to pack up tasty picnics or cook up a storm before plating up in the adjoining dining area. Should the sun shine, make the most of your superb south-facing patio and dine alfresco in the fresh air. Curl up in the snug lounge for cosy evenings in front of the TV or watch your favourite DVD and enjoy a film night before bed. When it’s time to rest your head, make your way upstairs to the two bedrooms, both of which are tranquil rooms in which to drift off and dream. The double is a light space with a pretty window overlooking greenery and the twin has characterful sloping ceilings. Wake up and soak in the tub or freshen up in the shower over the bath in the ground-floor family bathroom.

A mile from the sleepy village of Cilycwm, wander to the local pub for a tasty bite to eat or hop in the car and travel 4 miles to the market town of Llandovery where you can browse the charming antique shops. Continue on from Llandovery and find yourself in the magnificent Brecon Beacons National Park where you can summit peaks for panoramic views and wander well-trodden paths which wind their way past tumbling waterfalls and beautiful landscapes.

We had a great time. Cottage was lovely, gardens surrounding the cottage were really pretty and Hosts were nice and friendly. The supplies were generous and good quality. Cottage was remote with a pub 1 mile away and shops and plenty of takeaways/pubs in Llandovery approx 4 miles away but that is what we wanted and the reward was stunning countrysiRead morede. Would happily return. Great walks/hikes nearby . Tenby really worth visiting - 1 hours 15mins drive. 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.
