This wonderful Welsh terrace home is a fantastic base for families and couples looking to escape from it all and enjoy some of Wales’s most beautiful landscapes, coast, and country.

A perfect base for explorers and adventurers. Hike, cycle, or horse ride around the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park which boasts some of the most magical landscapes including mountains, caves, lakes, and waterfalls. Explore some of Wales’s heritage at what was formerly the deepest anthracite coal mine in the world, Cefn Coed Colliery Museum (3 miles) or the South Wales Miners Museum (16 miles). After all that adventure, make sure you enjoy some downtime with a day at the beach and there’s plenty to choose from along the Swansea coastline (16 miles). The city of Swansea offers an abundance of shops, restaurants, and bars, as does the local market town of Ystradgynlais (2 miles).

As you enter this charming property, you first discover a bright and spacious living area with two comfortable armchairs, a soft and cosy sofa, and a Smart TV for streaming your favourite shows.

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.
