Retreat to this off-grid haven for a trip to remember with fishing and canoeing on site and a woodland of chestnut and rowan trees all around. It’s an enchanting holiday let that allows guests to relax and get back to nature.

Escape and go off the beaten track with a glamping getaway in a secluded forest in the north of the Brecon Beacons. Just half a mile from the book lovers’ town of Hay-on-Wye, you’re in a wonderful setting, close to many amenities yet with a plethora of walks, cycle trails and a river to explore nearby. Visit Hay Castle, investigate the many bookshops, or head to the Black Mountain for walking and unbeatable views. And if you’re travelling as a family or with a group of friends, there’s plenty of opportunity for outdoor adventure from rafting to gorge jumping in this corner of the national park.

This picturesque retreat seems to belong in a fairy tale with scenic forest surrounds and pretty wood exterior. Meanwhile, inside, it boasts modern amenities including an electric fire and kitchen appliances such as a gas cooker, air fryer, whistling kettle, fridge and a small freezer. The galley kitchen/sitting room is a simple yet stylish place for preparing your meals or sharing a glass of wine at the table while you plan your trips out. Snuggle up on the sofa when the day is done, the wood burner roaring away beside you, and watch woodland life through floor-to-ceiling sliding doors. Natural pine furnishings, splashes of colour and plush beanbags ensure this glamping pod is wonderfully warm and welcoming, encouraging you to relax the moment you step through the door. The two bedrooms are made up of one zip and link double which can be made up as two singles on request, and one twin, both are decorated in bright colours and have large geometric windows, so you can wake up each morning surrounded by tranquil views of the trees – this truly is a place to get away from it all.

Step outside for a breath of fresh air and enjoy morning walks, keeping an eye out for local wildlife as you explore the site. There’s a BBQ available for guests if you would like to share a meal alfresco beneath the sun or stars, and ample parking on site.

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.
