  • Elegant white stone farmhouse with pleasant private drive
  • Light and bright throughout with an attractive sunroom
  • Hidden just below the Tor y Foel mountain and forest at the centre of the Brecon Beacons
Property code: BN132

With its close proximity to plenty of the Beacons’ best trails and climbs, and its large private garden, this property for four is an ideal base for a scenic outdoor holiday.

Thanks to the location of the magnificent Tor y Foel forest just beyond the back garden, your adventures don’t have to take you far while staying at this property. Just over 1 mile away, the village of Talybont-on-Usk has three pubs to choose from, not to mention a fantastic bike hire centre. The 55-mile long Taff Trail happens to run close by, perfect for cyclists and walkers alike, or if you prefer more water-based travel, boat hire is always available along the nearby River Usk. The picturesque Talybont Reservoir (2 miles) is the largest still water reservoir in the Beacons, and other popular walks include the Blaen y Glyn Waterfalls and the Henry Vaughan Walk.

No matter what the weather’s doing, this charming farmhouse is always a pleasure to come home to. On sunny summer mornings, a relaxed start in the brightly lit sunroom is an absolute must, while on chilly winter evenings, the double aspect wood burner and underfloor heating will provide all the cosiness and warmth you could possibly need. When it comes to preparing meals, the traditional kitchen with its Range Master oven, fridge and microwave is the perfect homely setting, and the finished product can be enjoyed by all around the elegant dining table. On the upper floor the two bedrooms can be found, both featuring double beds and convenient en-suites, one with a double walk-in shower and WC, and the other with a corner bath and WC.

The exterior of the accommodation is just as grand as the interior, boasting a large garden with breathtaking valley views as well as a BBQ and several different seating areas.

A spacious holiday cottage with an extremely well equipped kitchen. Good value for 4 people but up a long, rough drive so unsuitable for low vehicles. Drive was about a mile long so we walked to the pub for a meal on one night, do remember a torch if you will be returning in the dark!

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.
