A super, converted barn in the Brecon Beacons surrounded by wonderful mountain views, where you can explore waterfalls, mountains and reservoirs. En route home, stop at the local pub before returning to the warmth of a roaring fire.

Nestled in the Brecon Beacons National Park, with mountains, reservoirs, beautiful canals and views for miles, this converted barn is a delight. Half a mile from the village of Talybont-on-Usk, potter to the local shop and pub with ease. Brecon lies in one direction and both Crickhowell, with its range of independent shops and the foodie haven of Abergavenny lie in the other. The Brecon and Monmouth Canal with its pretty towpath runs nearby, or explore the River Wye and the River Usk. Walk from your door and up the lane to the foothills of the Beacons or perhaps head downwards to the country pub. Explore the local history at Tretower Castle and Court, White Castle and Raglan Castle, or spend a day rummaging through bookshops at Hay-on-Wye.

Set over one level with excellent access provisions for wheelchair users, this superb property offers a light and fresh interior that contrasts beautifully with the original exposed beams and stone fireplace. The very spacious and well-equipped kitchen has a dining table and chairs, electric cooker, microwave and fridge/freezer making mealtimes enjoyable, whilst the garden is accessed through the small utility room, equipped with washing machine, tumble dryer and sink. The bright living room is comfortably furnished with two sofas and a chair with French doors leading to the back garden. In the evening, light the wood burner and settle down to watch the TV or a DVD. There is also a top-quality sofa bed. The light and airy main bedroom has a super king-size bed, whilst the second bedroom has a single bed. The main bathroom has a bath, and there is also a shower room with wheelchair access.

It's always a pleasure to come here for our holiday and this cottage and the area ticks all the boxes for us. We have been staying in Cui Hen Beudy for about 10 years and never want to go home afterwards. It is clean, comfortable, well equipped and surrounded by beautiful countryside. The owner, Sue, is lovely too!

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.
