Set on the banks of the River Usk, this property is an excellent choice for guests seeking a cosy base for exploring the stunning Monmouthshire countryside. It comes complete with a hot tub for an extra-special touch.

This property boasts a superb location with fabulous views and is perfect for a family or small group. Anglers will love the free fishing opportunities on the doorstep and outdoor enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with the great variety of walks on offer in the surrounding area; join the beautiful canal towpath that passes through Abergavenny (8 miles) or pull on your hiking boots and set off up Pen y Fan (25 miles), the highest peak in South Wales.

The single-level accommodation is spacious and has been lovingly furnished in a country-cottage style. The open-plan living space is bright and airy, with ample home comforts for a cosy and relaxing stay. Snuggle up on the comfy sofas after a long walk and enjoy a film on the TV. Come together for mealtimes in the stylish kitchen/diner, before retiring to one of the chic bedrooms or slipping into the bubbling outdoor hot tub – perfect for unwinding aching limbs after a long hike. Patio doors lead from the kitchen/diner to the pretty enclosed garden, where you can relax on the patio or fire up the BBQ on a summer’s day.

Sample a bit of real local flavour at Sugar Loaf Vineyards (6 miles), located on the slopes of the mountain with the same name. Take a tour of the vineyards and admire the spectacular views over the Usk Valley, before enjoying a gentle climb to the summit for yet more breathtaking scenery. The towpath that runs alongside the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal is a beautiful place to stretch your legs, winding through fields and woodland. Join it at the visitor centre (8 miles) just outside Abergavenny, where you can also hire boats or canoes to get out on the water.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

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.
