A short 1-mile stroll will bring you to the friendly village of Gilwern with its welcoming pubs, village shop, and post office, or you could follow the various trails throughout the Brecon Beacons National Park.


Single-level, spacious and lovingly finished in a country cottage-style, the cottage sleeps four guests in peaceful surroundings. The open-plan living space is fresh and bright, featuring a comfortable lounge area complete with cosy sofas and a TV. The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven, induction hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, and a washer/dryer. Two bedrooms are located just beyond the lounge, both king-size with elegant beds. One of the bedrooms also features a handy en-suite wet room, but the family bathroom is perfect for a long soak after a busy day.


Patio doors lead from the kitchen/diner to the pretty enclosed garden, where you can relax on the patio with your morning coffee or make use of the BBQ on lazy summer evenings. A bubbling all-weather hot tub adds an extra special touch, and it is carefully sheltered to avoid the elements. Keen fishermen will be able to enjoy 3 miles of fishing free of charge from the riverbank below the cottages.

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.
