Conveniently situated for the A467, the cottage makes a great base for walkers and cyclists discovering the woodlands, mountains and fields of this stunning part of the Welsh countryside. Entering this stylish detached cottage you will find the spacious double-height open-plan lounge/diner/kitchen which makes a fantastic living space to relax in. The ground floor also offers a sauna, a private gym, an attractive bathroom with a sumptuous spa bath, and a cosy snug with a selection of books and holiday leaflets. Upstairs, the galleried landing has a table tennis/snooker table and a snug seating area perfect for relaxing with a good book. The pretty super-king-size bedroom features skylights in the low sloping ceiling. Outside, the grounds are shared with the owner’s house, and you will have access to a private patio which makes a lovely spot for a glass or two of wine in the evening. Exploring the grounds further you can head out into the surrounding fields and woodlands. The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the south-eastern part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Nearby are West Monmouthshire Golf Club (1.5 miles), Parc Bryn Bach (7.5 miles) and Keeper’s Pond (6.5 miles). The Blaenavon World Heritage Centre (5.5 miles) is home to attractions including the Blaenavon Ironworks and the Big Pit.

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.
