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.

Delightfully positioned hidden away from the village yet within easy reach of all the amenities, you’ll feel worlds away from home at this charming cottage. From the doorstep, enjoy an easy stroll into the heart of the village, where you’ll find local shops and the restored Talgarth Mill - a great spot for buying bread and other food essentials. Explore the local countryside, including the Pwll-y-Wrach Woods - a 43-acre nature reserve boasting a beautiful waterfall and a marked geology trail, 1 mile away. Brecon, in the heart of this national park, is just 9 miles away.

Head down the cobbled pathway to the front door and step into the traditional cottage, where you’re sure to feel immediately at home. The bright and sunny kitchen is flooded with light, with everything you could need during your stay. With thick stone walls, deep window recesses, and the great oak lintel over the old inglenook open fire, many original features remain in the spacious lounge/diner. A warming wood burner adds to the charming and homely country aesthetic, while the dining table is thoughtfully set beside the window, so you can dine overlooking the garden. Head upstairs to the cottage’s two bedrooms: one spacious double with village and river views, and one twin with views of an enormous sweet chestnut tree. The bathroom is also on the first floor, with a shower over the bath.

From the lounge area, a door opens onto the rear patio area, where a table and chairs make a great place for an al fresco dinner. There is also a long garden, enclosed by walls and hedges, and a BBQ. Ample parking is available.

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.
