Fabulous quiet location with easy access to town and all the local sights. Great walks around the cottage. Straight on to a path/right of way at the back of the cottage which is great for dog walks. Loads to see and do around the area and we plan to come back as soon as we have time. Cottage equipment and comfort was fantastic.

We stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it. Remote whilst close to local villages/towns, peaceful and with plenty of walks from the barn. We loved watching all the birds on the feeder including a daily visit from a woodpecker. The cottage was larger than we thought it would be which was a bonus, and very comfortable with the fire, comfy sofaRead mores and well equipped kitchen. We would highly recommend staying here! Hide

We loved our stay at the barn, it is very well equipped, cosy and peaceful.......with nothing around you just the meadows and views of the hills. It was the perfect base for us to explore the Brecon Beacons. You can walk from the barn up into the hills with amazing views for miles and also walk into the nearby villages of llangattock, crickhowell aRead morend along the canal to Gilwern. Highly recommend 'The horseshoe inn' and 'The vine tree' as places to eat in llangattock. Overall we had a fab stay. Hide

Idyllic location with lots of birds, wildlife and walks on the doorstep. The barn is cosy and warm for cooler days with a great log burner (plentiful logs provided & easy to gather kindling) and well equipped kitchen. For a rural break to explore the Black Mountains and quirky local towns Cwm Bach is ideally located.

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.
