The cottage is new, well designed and well located with excellent views. The interior is functional and a good enough size for a couple, with a single ground floor living area and bathroom with shower. There are some good walks directly from the cottage, and access to more substantial walking further afield (eg Brecon Beacons). There is a wood burnRead moreing stove but no apparent CO detector, so worth checking this out before booking. Hide

A much needed break from the craziness of the outside world. Thanks for a fabulous stay.

Spotless, exceptionally comfortable, tranquil with wonderful views. Good walks and cycle rides directly from the door. Secure storage for bicycles. The cottage was everything we hoped for and more.

Stunning views, well fit out, lovely owner who left scones and welsh cakes on arrival. Two sitting out areas & very light inside as lots of windows and 2 double French doors onto patios where we watched kites, buzzards and ravens daily.

This is such a beautiful place and so peaceful. From the Welsh cakes at the beginning to the starry night sky on our last night, its been a great stay! If you are looking for somewhere to eat, the Felin Fach Griffin does really good food. Make sure to watch the beautiful night sky on a clear night!

How lucky we were to find this superb place. Fabulous setting and so well set up - loved the customised map and sat out when we could between the rain! Kites, buzzards and ravens around everyday. Lovely welcome with scones and welsh cakes. Thank you. Make sure you visit the pool. Really magical.

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.
