Property code: BN433

Retreat to this serene 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.

Pack your bags and escape for a glamping getaway in a secluded forest. Surrounded by nature and towering trees, you are not far (less than a mile) from the vibrant, literary town of Hay-on-Wye with its eateries, bookshops and quaint streets. Spend your days exploring before snuggling up by the wood burner-effect electric fire and unwinding with your four-legged friends.

 

Step up and into this brilliant glamping pod with its geometric structure and windows which flood the home with natural light. The open-plan living space has floor-to-ceiling sliding doors so you can curl up on the comfortable sofa and watch the wildlife go by as you heat the room by lighting the wood burner fire. With everything you need to rustle up a meal, including a whistling kettle for cups of tea, cook up a feast in the galley-style kitchen before plating up at the table or stepping outside to dine alfresco. For a proper sundowner feast, fire up the BBQ and sizzle up a storm. Furnished with plush beanbags and treated to large windows, the two bedrooms are relaxing rooms in which to refresh, revive and rejuvenate before tomorrow’s adventures. Freshen up in the shower room before heading outside and spending time in the great outdoors.

 

Close to many well-trodden trails and mountain bike tracks, explore on foot or take to two wheels to explore your surroundings. Follow the Wye Valley Walk or the Offa’s Dyke Path or simply wander the streets of Hay-on-Wye and browse the abundance of renowned bookshops. A 6-mile trip will take you to Hay Bluff, a hill on the northern tip of the Black Mountains where panoramic views await. Settle down on the shingle beach at The Warren which is perfect for a picnic, or hire a canoe in Hay-on-Wye and paddle 5.5 miles to the village of Glasbury.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A beautiful hideaway in the woods. Perfect for a quiet escape but with enough on the doorstep to keep you busy. More than enough room for all of us (2 adults, a teen and a dog). The Cocoon was really well equipped with everything we could possibly need. The fire was even built and ready to light. The bathroom is small but perfectly formed with a suRead morerprisingly powerful shower. A truly beautiful place with a very warm welcome. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Hide

Cocooned within the woodland providing a very tranquil hideaway. The two bedrooms are a great size and provide a comfortable, cosy bed after a day exploring. Even blankets to snuggle up with on large bean bags to emmerse yourself in a good book. The woodburner provides a huge amount of heat we discovered. The kitchen is a perfect size with everythiRead moreng you need including cloths and washing up liquid. The shower provides a lovely powerful, hot blast with eco gel. Great location for Hay & the Wye Hide

The Cocoon at Raquety Farm is set in a stunning location. It felt like we were the only people in the world. Yes the kitchen is basic and there is no TV but that is exactly what we were looking for. We actually managed to do a lamb and pork cooked dinner with all the trimmings on Easter Sunday for four people, just by using the 2 gas burners, the ARead moreir Fryer and the BBQ, so it's not an issue at all. Ros, the owner is lovely and the accommodation is beautiful. Loved the log fire too! Hide

Location

Map
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.
