Set amid the sweeping hills of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this traditional stone farmhouse is an excellent choice for keen walkers with a love of the great outdoors.

Overlooking the quintessential village of Pencelli, this rustic, yet elegant property is set on the grounds of a working farm. Sleeping ten guests across five bedrooms, the property is accessed via a quiet lane close to an array of scenic trails. Don your walking boots and set off to explore, climbing the peaks of the Brecon Beacons, visiting the ancient church at Llanfeugan, or strolling the short 1-mile walk to the local pub for a hearty meal and a refreshing, locally-brewed ale.

Exposed stone walls, wooden-framed windows, and timber-beamed ceilings feature throughout the entire property, which has been carefully furnished to add to the overall timeless charm. Step inside the entrance hall to discover a roaring wood burner and a comfortable sofa, the perfect spot for relaxing with a glass of wine. The hand-built kitchen is spacious and inviting, complete with a larder, and an adjoining utility room to meet all of your culinary needs. From here, enter the dining room, which has plenty of seating for your entire party and fantastic views. The sitting room has sofas, a TV and an open fire for leisurely film nights, or you can gather around the table in the snug/study for board games. The first bedroom is also downstairs, boasting a beautiful four-poster bed. Climb the steep staircase to discover four further bedrooms, one of which is a king-size with an en-suite bathroom. The remaining three bedrooms share a family bathroom, and there is also a conservatory with comfortable seating, ideal for taking advantage of the scenery.

Outside, the walled garden is a tranquil setting for tall drinks in the sunshine, featuring a wooden terrace with a pergola and a BBQ. There is a gated area with a small pond and a pretty lawn space with herbaceous borders. Upstairs, a roof terrace offers panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

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.
