Originally the dairy of Talgarth’s Great Hall Farmhouse (circa 1680), this spacious country cottage is packed with charm and history. Sleeping four, it’s great for small families or couples.

Discover a relaxing country break with amenities close at hand by enjoying a stay in the peaceful town of Talgarth. Perfect for hosting a small group eager to explore the local area, this chocolate box property sleeps four guests in unrivalled comfort with views of the River Ennig and beyond, a delight to wake up to each morning.

Despite being lovingly modernised to create a comfortable place to stay, this unique holiday home benefits from endless original features that contribute to the overall authentic country feel of the place. Step into a cosy lounge where thick stone walls, exposed beams and an old inglenook fireplace hosts a warming wood burner and is surrounded by seating, a delightful spot to enjoy morning coffee or late-night drinks. Here you’ll also find a circular dining table, a sociable spot for savouring home-cooked meals or a local takeaway. Upstairs, two bedrooms have been decorated with sturdy oak furniture and comfortable beds for your stay, providing a place to rest your weary head at the end of each day. Completing the property is a long garden framed by walls and hedges for privacy, as well as outdoor furniture and BBQ for summer dining.

Take a stroll around the town of Talgarth to find a varied selection of shops, pubs and eateries, or delve further into the Brecon Beacons National Park for wonderful days out. Nearby, the Pwll-y-Wrach Nature Reserve can be found less than 1 mile away, presenting a magical space filled with woodland and waterfalls to explore. Keen hikers or bikers will no doubt head to the nearby Black Mountains to summit some of Brecon’s most impressive peaks, whilst the nearby Llangorse Activity Centre (5 miles) is on-hand for organised activities including climbing, riding and water sports.

Lovely cottage - would suggest getting a sofa bed in the living room to enable more flexibility.


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.
