  • Stunning panoramic views across the Usk Valley
  • A renovated 17th-century stone barn
  • Two cosy en-suite bedrooms
Property code: BN125

Two en-suite bedrooms are ready to welcome up to four people at this remarkable stone barn conversion on the slopes of the Black Mountains.

Stay at this superb converted 17th-century stone barn. The house has two en-suite bedrooms making it an ideal stay for a group of four friends, or a small family. Situated on a working livestock farm, there are plenty of walking and cycling routes on the doorstep through the picturesque Brecon Beacons National Park.

One of three properties on the site, this converted barn retains some fantastic traditional features such as oak windows and beams. Indoors is super spacious, brimming with character and well-equipped for your stay. The kitchen has plenty of room for preparing and cooking a meal and an oak table with chairs for all to enjoy dining together. The two king-size bedrooms both have en-suites, so there’ll be no queues for the bathroom in the morning. The rooms have magnificent views across the Usk Valley, and underfloor heating throughout the property means you’ll be warm whatever the Welsh weather throws at you.

At the base of the Black Mountains, you won’t have to travel far to find a fantastic route for walking or cycling. Visit the unmistakable Sugar Loaf and take the hike to the summit, if you’re feeling daring. The ’Gateway to Wales’, Abergavenny, is 8.5 miles from here and is oozing with history and heritage. Visit the pretty village of Crickhowell (3 miles) where there are a few restaurants and pubs, or head further afield to the literary town of Hay-on-Wye (17.5 miles) for a great mix of boutique stores. This property is situated just 2.5 miles from where the Green Man Festival is held.

Future guests should be informed of the very narrow road up to the accommodation has very few passing places.

Really lovely cottage, clean, comfortable with everything you need for a relaxing break away. Amazing views, perfect for sitting out in the evening with a glass of wine after a days walking. Good central location for all the main attractions of the area by car. Would highly recommend.

The property appears to have been converted from the original stone house pretty recently and is in excellent condition. The main feature though, is not the house itself, but the outstanding view over the Usk valley to the mountains in the distance. Dining on the patio, in the sun, with that view is something you will always remember about your holRead moreiday there. There are plenty of local walks, Crickhowell and Brecon, the two nearest market towns are worth a visit and are the nearest shops. Hide

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.
