Whether for a romantic hideaway for two or a family retreat, this charming barn conversion overlooking the Towy Valley offers wonderful opportunities for fishing, walking, biking and wildlife watching.

Set in the idyllic Welsh countryside with stunning views across the village, fields, woodlands and mountains. Join the plethora of footpaths to explore the nearby walking or biking trails. Take the short walk down to the River Towy and where you can fish for trout and salmon; the Towy Valley is also home to an incredible variety of wildlife and birds. The pretty market town of Llandovery, with some interesting cafes and pubs, a few boutique-style shops, antique shops, and a Heritage Centre is 2 miles away. Visit Aberglasney House, the National Botanic Garden of Wales and the romantic Carreg Cennen Castle or try the National Trust’s Dinefwr and go underground on their Dolaucothi Gold Mine tours.

With all the living space and bedrooms on the upper floor, climb the stone and slate staircase to be surrounded by beautifully restored 17th-century features in this quirky barn conversion. Oak beams, oak floors and original stonework all serve to retain the character, complemented by modern comforts to create comfortable and welcoming accommodation throughout. The kitchen has a built-in electric cooker, hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge, whilst the utility area on the ground floor has a chest freezer and a washer/dryer. The living room has truly glorious pastoral views over meadows with grazing cattle to the River Towy and the winding valley beyond. Settle down on the comfortable leather sofas and chairs to relax with a film or enjoy a home-cooked meal at the dining table. The double bedroom has an en-suite with a shower, there is a twin bedroom and separate bathroom with shower over bath.

As the day draws to a close, head down to your own, private hot tub, sheltered under a wooden gazebo with its own bar and stools. Dine alfresco with a BBQ as you watch the red kites soar above you and look out for the particularly rare little ringed plover - a sighting of this creature being the perfect end to the day.

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.
