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.

The hillside behind this delightful cottage, Craig-y-Cilliau, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and attracts a wealth of wildlife. The caves of Agen Allwedd are very popular with cavers, and with footpaths right from the door, walkers, hikers and bikers will be in heaven. The River Usk is easily accessible in Crickhowell, whilst The Brecon and Monmouth Canal runs close to the farm for an easy stroll along the historic tram line. This cottage is within easy reach of the villages of Llangattock and Crickhowell, with plenty of pubs, restaurants and coffee shops, perfect after a day in the hills. Day permits for fishing on the Rivers Usk & Wye are available in Crickhowell and canoes for the River Wye can be rented in Glasbury.


Traditional features blend seamlessly with modern comforts in this charming home from home. Sleeping seven with the option of an eighth fold down bed, this stone farmhouse can be booked with the neighbouring barn that sleeps two, perfect for those who wish to holiday together with a bit of their own space. The comfortable and well-designed kitchen has a Belfast sink, double electric oven, halogen hob, fridge, dishwasher, microwave. The utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and a fridge/freezer. The dining area has a quarry stone tiled floor, a pine dining table and chairs and an attractive and efficient wood burner for chilly nights, whilst on warm evenings, you can open the door onto the garden. The large hallway, where the back door leads out to the garden, is perfect for storing muddy boots and coats. The living room, with its oak beams and stone fireplace has a wealth of character, with two sofas and a chair perfect for relaxing on in front of the wood burner, watching a film or perhaps enjoying a jigsaw or game. The first of the bedrooms is on the ground floor and has patio doors that lead to a small courtyard, the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee in peace and quiet. There is also a separate room with a power shower on the ground floor. Up a flight of attractive but fairly steep iron spiral stairs, the master bedroom has a double bed and an en-suite with a large, deep bath. A further double room, a twin room and a bathroom with bath complete the upstairs.


Spend hours playing cricket or croquet in the large garden, bounded in part by stone walls, or simply relax on the lawn. Garden furniture and a BBQ mean you can dine alfresco, sipping a glass of wine. There is also ample parking for several cars and shop.

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.
