In a glorious location beside The Dulas Brook, this cottage is perfect for a family get together. Potter amongst the wild ponies or stroll to the bustling town of Hay-on Wye for a little retail therapy.

Escape to this glorious cottage and make yourselves at home amongst creature comforts, period features and the beautiful interior. Sleeping seven guests, enjoy countryside living with friends, family and two canine companions. Sitting beside the Dulas Brook, enjoy a waterside wander straight from your door, or head into Hay-on-Wye (1.5 miles) and visit the array of eateries, bookshops and Hay Castle.


Enter this beautiful abode and admire the exposed beams, stonework and traditional features which appear throughout. With comfy sofas, the lounge has many a cosy spot in which to curl up and relax in front of the wood burner – a welcome comfort after days spent in the great outdoors. The kitchen has an oil Rayburn so you can cook up a storm and experiment with delicious flavours; the dishwasher will make light work of clearing up after meals. The flagstone floor is fitted with underfloor heating for a touch of luxury whilst the original charm is maintained. Plate up at the dining table where a second wood burner throws heat into the room, or dine alfresco on the small, enclosed patio. Climb oak stairs to rest your head in one of four bedrooms with characterful beams and sloping ceilings – also upstairs is the bathroom where you can enjoy soaking in the bathtub or taking a shower.


Walk 2 miles to The Warren where you can enjoy a picnic on the pretty shingle beach or hire a canoe in Glasbury (5.5 miles) and paddle the winding River Wye. A couple of National Trust properties sit close to home; head to Hergest Croft Gardens (13 miles), or Croft Castle (28 miles) for a day out or visit the largest natural lake in South Wales, Llangorse (14 miles), for a day by the water.

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.
