Set on the cusp of a quintessential rural hamlet, this single-level property is a haven for guests with a love for the outdoors, complete with a private hot tub for relaxing evenings under the stars.

Positioned just 6 miles from Sennybridge and set against a backdrop of open countryside, this impressive detached bungalow is ideal for families and small groups seeking a quiet escape. Stroll along the various trails to reach the community-owned pub in Pentre-Bach, 4 miles away, where you’ll be rewarded with a hearty meal and a selection of excellent cask ales. An 11-mile drive will bring you into the cathedral town of Brecon, a picturesque location studded with independent shops, eateries and amusements such as a vintage-style cinema and a popular theatre. The River Usk and Honddu provide ample opportunities for the keen fishermen, and there are two popular golf courses within 13.5 miles.

Inside, the property is homely and welcoming with comfortable furniture and thoughtful creature comforts including a welcome treat of Welsh cakes and a few essentials such as tea, coffee and sugar. Kick off your boots and unwind in the lounge in front of the TV, enjoying the views through the triple-sliding door. Head through to the spacious and contemporary kitchen, where you’ll be able to prepare delicious meals with ease thanks to the selection of equipment. Gather for delicious dinners and simple suppers in the elegant dining room, which has enough seating for your entire party. At bedtime, the three bedrooms each have their own unique character and are crisply dressed for a restful night’s sleep. Choose from an inviting twin room, a spacious double, or a marvellous king-size complete with a TV/DVD. Next, a generous family bathroom with a bath, separate shower and a WC is a welcome treat for a relaxing soak. If you have muddy clothes, the utility room will prove very handy as it has a washing machine and ample storage space.

Grab your morning coffee and venture outside to admire the views towards the Brecon Beacons. The property backs on to fields with grazing livestock and, on clear days, you’ll be able to spot the resident red kites circling above. Of an evening, the decked patio area is a wonderful place to sip drinks and dip your toes in the private hot tub. There’s ample parking, and also an additional utility room with a WC and drying area, which can only be accessed from the outside. Your four-legged friend will appreciate the vast garden which is mainly set to lawn with mature shrubs.

The living room had great views of the surrounding farm with cattle and sheep in the fields. It was nice and quiet in the hamlet of Pentre-bach amongst the hills. The bathroom and kitchen looked newly refurbished but the bathroom could do with some towel racks and the kitchen a bigger fridge. There was a hot tub outside which was the added bonus anRead mored we used it most days. Our hosts who were excellent left us a welcome pack of wine, chocolates, juice, tea, coffee, milk, sugar along with some yummy pancakes and welsh cakes. They came and checked the hot tub every day so we chatted with them. There was also a gas BBQ which we utilised. There is parking for up to three or four cars. We had a nice relaxing break here. I would recommend it Hide

Incredible cottage, the owners could not have been more attentive, open communication throughout the whole process and during our stay. Made us feel very welcome and at home! The extra little touches they left were a nice surprise. Its a rural location with friendly cows/sheep right outside the garden in the adjoining field which was nice. The locaRead morel pub was welcoming with great food-excellent value for money. We felt close enough to all the attractions/activities we wanted to do as just a short drive away. Would highly recommend Hide

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.
