Property code: BN117

An old stone farmhouse originally dating from the 1800s, here tradition meets modernity to create a charming holiday home for all the family. Delightfully situated in the peace and quiet of several acres of rugged landscape, and within 2 miles of the bustling town of Crickhowell.

Surrounded by several acres of picturesque water meadows with a babbling brook and rich in wildlife, this pretty stone farmhouse is in the perfect location for a family getaway to the rural beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Outdoor enthusiasts can make the most of the incredible landscapes, with a nearby Site of Special Scientific Interest for nature lovers. The vibrant town of Crickhowell is just over 2 miles away with a varied selection of eateries and independent shops to wander around.

Dating from the 1800s, this cosy farmhouse boasts original features and traditional country style, while still meeting the needs of modern living. Relax in front of the wood burner, with a stone fireplace and oak beams that add plenty of character. A convenient central island and Belfast sink make the kitchen well-equipped for family feasts, which can be enjoyed at the dining area with a second wood burner and a charming stable door out to the garden. The first pretty bedroom is located downstairs and benefits from patio doors out onto a courtyard for a refreshing morning coffee. Up the steep wrought-iron spiral stairs are a further three lovingly decorated bedrooms and plenty of bathroom space for eight guests. Aside from the courtyard, there is also a large enclosed garden with garden furniture and a BBQ for al fresco dining.

If you can draw yourself away from the beauty of the landscapes on your doorstep, there are a variety of popular walks and notable sites only slightly further afield. Behind the property is Craig-y-Cilau, known for its wealth of nature, while Llangattock Mountain and Llangattock Escarpment provide more challenging walks. Near here are the caves of Agen Allwedd for a fascinating outdoor experience. Enjoy a more relaxing stroll along the River Usk into Crickhowell, where you can indulge in a lovely meal out with the family.

The farm is beautiful, a catch up with family, very comfortable for 8 of us. Walks out the back gate, views breathtaking. Very friendly locals in village and pub. The owner was in the cottage next door, left us to it which was lovely. Plenty room for 8 big bedrooms and bathrooms, the washing machine and tumble dryer a plus! Beautiful gardens to relRead moreax in with a glass of wine, and tea in the morning. Owners truly thought of everything. Definitely recommend to stay, one of our best weeks so far. Hide

Exceptionally peaceful location with excellent views. Clean, comfortable cottage with walks from the doorstep. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A lovely cottage in a great location. However although it can sleep 8 people there is really only room for 6 at the dining table. Also it?s not easy getting luggage up the spiral staircase.

A very comfortable cottage in an outstanding location. We look forward to coming back!

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.
