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.

A lovely property in a very convenient location, ideal for Hay Festival and walking in the locality and the Brecon Beacons. Owners welcoming and helpful and the cottage was homely and comfortable with everything we could need. A homemade cake to welcome us was wonderful and was enjoyed every afternoon with tea for a week - such a treat. Talgarth isRead more a friendly village with a small, but good range of shops if wanting to do your own cooking. Hide

Warm and comfortable cottage in a convenient location near town centre. Good shower with rain spray head. Glad to have a dishwasher. The wood burner was very effective and the wood beamed fireplace made a pleasant setting. Finally the owners did everything to make a pleasant stay.

The cottage was in a lovely location and ideally situated for local shops, pubs and restaurants which were all within close walking distance. The cottage was clean and well equipped with a nice wood burner that worked well.

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.
