Property code: BN122

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.

Imagine gazing out across the serene Welsh countryside from a private hot tub with a glass of bubbly in hand. That can be a reality with a stay at this idyllic two-bedroom cottage just 3 miles from the Brecon Beacons. It’s perfect for nature lovers keen to explore the area on foot or on two wheels. The Towy Valley is home to incredible wildlife, and birdwatchers will be in their element here. Look out for red kites and the elusive little ringed plover. A sighting of this rare creature will make your day!

As the accommodation is on the upper floor, you’ll need to be comfortable climbing a traditional slate staircase to access the living space. Much of the original character of the barn is retained by oak beams, oak floors and exposed stonework. These are complemented by modern home comforts to create an inviting space throughout. In the living room, it’s easy to be hypnotised by the wonderful views of cattle grazing in the meadows towards the River Towy and valley beyond. Enjoy a homecooked meal at the dining table or sizzle up an al fresco BBQ. The hot tub (which you can hire for a fee) is sheltered under a wooden gazebo with its own bar and stools, offering a real slice of luxury as you unwind at the end of the day, whatever the weather.

Keen anglers can arrange with the owner to fish for trout and salmon on the River Towy, while mountain bikers can hit the trails of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Elsewhere, go underground on a tour of Dolaucothi Gold Mines (13 miles) or explore the hilltop ruins of Dinefwr Castle (12 miles). For boutique shops, cafes and pubs, head to the pretty town of Llandovery, 2.5 miles from the cottage.

This is a really delightful cottage with lovely owners. We stayed for a week and did not want to leave! The location is good for exploring beautiful parts of Wales, there's a town with a supermarket and decent cafe up the road, there are wonderful views of the river and fields, and there's the incredible hot tub! We loved watching the sunset from tRead morehere with a glass of wine. So relaxing (& romantic). The cottage is to a very high standard (including good showers) and has everything you need. Hide

We had a great time. The scenery is amazing and the owners are so welcoming. Our boys loved watching the farm activities and enjoyed talking to Alan about what he does. I can't reccomend this place enough. We had the best holiday and we were sad to leave. The hot tub was amazing to just sit there and appreciate the views in front.

Absolutely perfect, ideal for a quiet relaxing time away. Private, cosy and comfortable we had awful weather but chilling in a steaming hot tub, with the most beautiful back drop, stunning and tranquility at its best...

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
