Property code: BN105

A traditional Welsh cottage set on the edge of a beautiful remote valley, offering superb views of the surrounding countryside. It is the ideal choice for couples seeking a quiet base for a romantic escape.

Step back in time and stay in this chocolate-box cottage that’s perfect for two, swapping the daily grind for scenic walks, delicious pub lunches, and cosy evenings snuggled in front of the fire with a glass of wine in hand. Based just 3 miles from the pretty village of Llangynidr, you could soon be navigating the stunning scenery of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal or discovering the spectacular landscape of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

White-washed walls, character beams and exposed stone set the scene on chilly winter evenings, made all the more special by the roaring wood burner in the inglenook fireplace. This open-plan living space is perfectly tailored to couples, offering sofas, a dining table and a TV for relaxing afternoons. There’s a kitchen for whipping up tasty treats and simple suppers, and a small glass conservatory overlooking the stream behind the cottage. At bedtime, climb the steep cottage-style stairs to reach the elegant bedroom tucked within the eaves of the house, complete with sloping ceilings and an en-suite bathroom. Outside, there is an attractive area that’s perfect for perching with your morning coffee.

Set out to explore your surroundings at leisure, or chat to the friendly owner who lives just along the lane to find out how to arrange bike hire, guided walks and other outdoor activities. Talybont Reservoir is the largest still water reservoir in the Brecon Beacons and is a beautiful place to take a quiet stroll to watch the resident wildlife. A short 9.5-mile drive will bring you to Crickhowell, where you can browse the pretty shops and enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the popular pubs.

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?
