This lovingly converted former barn sits within the grounds of a working sheep farm on the cusp of the Brecon Beacons National Park. It is an ideal choice for guests with a love of the great outdoors.

Surrounded by beautiful farmland and boasting breathtaking views of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this former barn sleeps six guests across two bedrooms. Appealing to keen walkers and golfers alike, there is plenty to entertain within 3 miles of the property. Cradoc Golf Course is less than 0.5 miles away, where you can enjoy the 18-hole parkland course and admire the stunning scenery of the Mid Wales hills. A 2.5-mile drive will take you to the bustling town of Brecon, renowned for the famous Theatr Brycheiniog, pretty canal, and of course the numerous eateries and independent shops. Adventurous types will adore the activities on offer at Lake Llangorse, 9 miles away, where you can try your hand at canoeing, fishing, and even waterskiing and wakeboarding.

Step inside to discover an understated yet cosy interior, finished in the style of a traditional county cottage. Single-level with a small step down to the living area, it is the perfect choice for families and friendship groups seeking a quiet haven. The kitchen has everything you need to cook up a storm using delicious locally sourced ingredients. The dining area is ideal for gathering for heartier meals and adjoins the comfortable sitting room, complete with patio doors leading outside. Put your feet up and settle down with a good book or an exciting film, treating yourself to a few after-dinner snacks. When it is time for bed, enjoy a soothing soak in the bathroom before retreating to one of two inviting bedrooms. The family bedroom is perfect for guests with young children and features two singles alongside a snug double bed. A separate shared laundry room can be found in an adjacent building, taking care of any washing needs during your stay.

The cottage is part of a complex of properties located next to the owner’s 17th-century farmhouse, sharing a large stretch of grassland. A bubbling stream meanders alongside the properties, passing your private patio as it makes its way to the bottom of the grass verge. This outside space is quiet and sheltered and features a BBQ for lazy summer evenings relaxing outside. You can also wander the farm by prior arrangement with the owner, visiting the livestock and exploring the various trails leading from the property.

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.
