Hidden at the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this pretty property is ideal for coming home to, whether that’s after a day of adventurous mountain climbing or quiet village exploring.

As well as being conveniently located just 0.5 miles from the most picturesque route up the mountain of Pen-y-Fan, this stylish cottage is a mere 2 miles from the Welsh town of Brecon, which boasts a majestic cathedral and plenty of unique shops. Getting around on foot or by bicycle is easy thanks to the property’s location on the Taff Trail, offering 55 miles of forest, railway and riverside paths. If there are youngsters to entertain with more than just the breath-taking scenery, Cantref Adventure Farm (3 miles) is full of family-friendly activities and attractions.

Step inside out of the wilderness and relax in the light and airy open-plan living space, lovingly decorated with homely features like the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, handcrafted using wood from the owner’s field. Rustling up a meal is no problem in the spacious kitchen, complete with electric oven and induction hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer. This can then be savoured around the dining table, whilst admiring the views of the mountains through the patio doors. When it’s time to put your feet up, sink into the sofas in the cosy lounge, get the wood burner going and unwind, either as the piano or the TV entertains. The bright double bedroom can be found downstairs, as can the shower room with walk-in shower and WC. Heading upstairs, discover the king-size master bedroom, which has a built-in wardrobe as well as an en-suite with shower over the bath and WC.

Large oak doors open onto a patio area and an enclosed garden with a pretty stream running alongside. Children are welcome to play on the trampoline and play area in the owner’s garden, which can be easily accessed via a gate at the bottom of the property’s garden.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Spent a restful week in the cottage which is cosy and adequately equipped but falls short of ""Brecon Cottages"" description. Located down a long, narrow lane, access can be awkward and will probably give you some good reversing practice . Brecon itself is a very pleasant town with friendly locals and lots of small, interesting shops.


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.
