Explore the Brecon Beacons National Park with ease from this renovated Welsh cottage, set within the quiet hamlet of Trecastle. Sleeping four, it’s a great property for families or couples.

With the inspiring and breathtaking ‘Waterfall Country’ on its doorstep, this cottage is ideally located for a peaceful escape in the stunning Welsh countryside. There are ample wild and remote areas to explore, providing a new adventure every day of your visit. Dan-yr-Ogof Caves are within easy reach, while Brecon is just 12 miles. Enjoy a gentle stroll to the village pub at Trecastle and explore the hidden gem that is its antique centre; more shops and eateries can be found in neighbouring Sennybridge, 3 miles.

You’ll feel immediately at home stepping into this cottage, with a cosy lounge area a welcome sight after a long journey. Curl up on the plush sofas and chairs, firing up the wood burner on those cold nights for extra comfort. If you’re in the mood for a movie night, you’ll be spoilt for choice with a TV, Blu-ray DVD, and a wide choice of DVDs to choose from. The kitchen has all you need for the cook of the family to make everyone’s favourite dishes, with a spacious dining room making a great spot for a big, sociable dinner beneath the oak beams. There’s an electric stove here too, providing extra warmth. When you’re ready to go to bed, head upstairs to the first floor where you will find the cottage’s two bedrooms: one super king-size with a zip-and-link bed (can be made into twin beds on request) and one king-size. Both bedrooms also have TVs and DVDs. There is also a bathroom on this floor with a shower over the bath.

Step through the kitchen door and into a pretty, fenced terraced garden, which is a total suntrap in summer months. Relax on the decking area with your morning cup of coffee or a chilled glass of wine as the sun sets in the evening.

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.
