A superbly stylish and luxurious cottage on the southern flanks of the Brecon Beacons National Park, perfectly placed to enjoy the magnificent Welsh landscape.

Discover the heart of the Swansea Valley and the brink of the Brecon Beacons, staying in a lovingly converted barn in the village of Cwmtwrch-Uchaf. A true home from home, this contemporary holiday cottage provides the perfect base for four guests to enjoy, lending itself perfectly for two couples holidaying together. Find a second holiday cottage directly next door, ideal for those travelling with more guests in tow.

Combining pretty pastel features and bold colour accents, this stunning accommodation offers a truly delightful stay for anyone who calls it home. Discover a bright and cheerful kitchen with a high vaulted beamed ceiling, beautiful travertine tiled floors and a Rangemaster cooker, along with all the contemporary necessities for cooking up a storm. The lounge boasts similarly high ceilings, with plush sofas and a warm wood burner promising a cosy evening in whatever the weather. Once you’ve exhausted yourself with a day out and about, two cosy double bedrooms lay waiting for you. One can be found on the ground floor, whilst a second can be found in a unique gallery level above the lounge. Completing the property is a spacious outdoor area with a courtyard garden and walks available on your doorstep.

Benefiting from the best of both worlds, find the edge of the expansive Brecon Beacons National Park just 3 miles away, and the bustling city of Swansea just 14.5 miles away. A must for guests of all ages is a trip to the National Showcaves Centre (8.5 miles), along with the Cwm Clydach RSPB Nature Reserve (10 miles). Those hoping to stay closer to home will be no doubt keen to frequent Cwmtwrch’s local pubs and cafe, less than 500 metres from home.

Lovely cottage, clean and great location. Pubs serving good food within walking distance. Waterfall walks, the caves, Mumbles, Brecon, Cardiff, Swansea and the Gower all within an easy drive. Friendly and helpful owner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend.

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.
