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.

In the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, surrounded by mountains, reservoirs and canals, is this beautifully-converted barn. Arranged over one level, this delightful property offers light and fresh accommodation with plenty of character through exposed beams and an original stone fireplace. Spend your days browsing the streets of nearby Brecon (7.5 miles), following the canal towpath or having fun on the water before returning for an al fresco meal in the enclosed garden, which is perfect for four-legged friends.

With increased accessibility for wheelchair users, this single-storey property is ideal for romantic getaways or family breaks. Rustle up delicious meals for two in the traditional kitchen, which provides plenty of space and has a good-sized farmhouse-style table in the centre. With a large fireplace complete with wood burner, cosy soft furnishings and double doors opening onto the garden, the lounge is a restful space at any time of day. When you’re not indulging in a long soak in the bath, make the most of this property’s outside space which includes a raised herb bed, sunny enclosed lawn garden and al fresco dining area.

Just 0.5 miles from the village of Talybont-on-Usk, this property sits within walking distance of the local pubs and shop. Walkers and dogs will be in their element with wonderful walks available from the doorstep to the foothills of the Beacons. Meanwhile, gentler strolls can be enjoyed along the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal. For local history, visit Tretower Castle and Court (7 miles), White Castle (22.5 miles) and Raglan Castle (25.5 miles), or for a greater selection of amenities head to nearby Brecon and Crickhowell (9.5 miles), both of which are home to independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.

Cui Hen Beudy is a very cosy, well equipped holiday property. A converted barn with lovely views, very peaceful and relaxing. We loved watching the antics of the horses, chickens and ducks in the evening after spending our days walking the dogs. The only downside was the pubs in the village were closed for most of our stay even though Covid restricRead moretions had been lifted. Hide

This was a great base to explore the local area. Loved the apple juice and eggs on arrival, and also sampled the cider which was great! Much bigger than expected, we are a family of three with a large dog so the enclosed garden and 2 bathrooms were ideal.

Cui Hen Beudy is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday. The cottage is comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We were warmly welcomed by Sue, the owner, and we are all counting the days until we can return.

Really enjoyed staying, the Apple Juice and free range eggs were a nice surprise. The converted barn is lovely and it is set in wonderful countryside we would definitely return for another holiday (hopefully outside of the Covid restrictions) and explore more of the historic elements of the area. A very relaxing and peaceful holiday, thank you.

This cottage was perfect, well appointed, quiet and very rural, and in a very good location near Talybont with access to some lovely walks nearby and beautiful scenery. Sue gave us some eggs from her hens and supplied her home-made cider. Highly recommended

Our 4th visit to this lovely cottage - we highly enjoyed being back here having missed a year! My husband was recovering from recent surgery and the facilities meant we were able to have a quiet and relaxing break, revisiting some of our favourite locations. As ever, cottage warm, comfortable and clean. Thank you, we hope to visit again soon.

An immaculate cottage, in an excellent location for exploring the area. We received a warm welcome from Sue, our host. Thank you for the most delicious produce that you left for us.

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!

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
