Enjoyed a short stay on a quiet little farm with a great view south over the valley and Tretower court/castle. Sheep, lambs and cows in the surrounding fields plus a cool looking bull in the barn next door. The garden / patio is a really nice place to sit and enjoy the view and sun with an added bonus of buzzards and kites drifting past.

Awesome views of the Mountains / Valley / Tretower village - Prob the best we have ever had - Very well equipped / clean. Owners very friendly who own the working farm. Follow instructions to get there, not Sat Nav! and take at least a 'normalish' car, nothing too low! Crickhowell village lovely, good food / groceries, but not walking distance. AnyRead more out of place / area you want to visit, go very early when quiet as back roads are not very wide, be prepared for lots of reversing! Hide

A wonderfully situated cottage with superb views. Very well designed to make the maximum use of the space, and lovely and warm. Spacious bedroom with comfortable beds, good en-suite. Access by single track roads, very few passing places. We were glad to never meet any traffic!. Short rough farm track in last few metres. Bedroom window overlooks theRead more cattle shed, probably empty later in the spring and summer, and cattle were remarkably quiet and interesting to watch! We hope to come again. Hide

Spectacular location with superb views to the South over Tretower village and the valley. The 2-bed property is well-equipped and clean and is remote and tucked away in the middle of a working farm. Don't attempt to drive there in a low-slung sports car! There are good amenities in nearby Crickhowell (7 minutes), and Abergavenny is also within easyRead more reach (20 minutes), as are Hereford, Ludlow and Leominster, (about 1 hour +/- each). Great place for solitude or sightseeing, whatever you prefer Hide

Map
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.
