A rural retreat tucked away in the heart of the Breconshire countryside with spectacular mountain views, ideal for active walks and cycle rides and evenings spent snuggled in front of the comforting wood burner.


Elevated above a meadow with a small pool and stream running below, this peaceful and picturesque lodge has stunning views across to the Black Mountains and Mynydd Troed. Within easy walking distance is Llandefalle Common, grazed by sheep and mountain ponies and beyond is Llaneglwys Forest. There are also endless scenic cycle rides from the door. Clay pigeon shooting, golf and fishing can all be found locally. The town of Brecon ( 5 miles away ) boasts a leisure centre, cinema and theatre together with boat hire on the Brecon and Monmouth Canal.

Beneath the wooden exterior of the lodge,is a fresh and contemporary property characterised by comfortable furniture and stylish decor. A welcoming open-plan living area, with wood burner in the corner, offers views over farmland to the mountains. The well equipped kitchen area is a treat for budding cooks, who will appreciate the country-cottage-style cabinets and ample worktop space. A tasteful shower room with heated towel rail and WC complete the ground floor. Upstairs, the two elegant bedrooms are crisply dressed and thoughtfully accessorised, whether you opt for the king-size bedroom or the cosy single room with an additional sofa bed.


Back downstairs, step through the patio doors ready to unwind with drinks on the patio or a relaxing spell in the hot tub. Cyclists can lock up their bikes in the secure shed, which also houses a washing machine and drying area for wet clothes. The lodge is surrounded by farmland, so be sure to keep dogs on leads and supervise children at all times, especially around the small pond and stream.

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.

Reviewed by Mrs Thompson August 2020

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.
