Property code: BN134

A handsome holiday home, marrying period character with comfort and offering exceptional access to the bustling cathedral town, as well as to the scenic Brecon Beacons.

Discover the natural beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park when you head out on long walks from the front door of this appealing, two-bedroom Welsh cottage. Sleeping up to four guests, it is also well-placed for the shops, restaurants and cafes of the vibrant market town of Brecon. Venture out from your holiday home on the edge of Brecon to enjoy a 3.5-mile walk along the River Usk to the village of Llanfrynach; drive approximately 6 miles to hike up famous Pen y Fan, one of the most popular peaks in the Beacons or go canoeing, kayaking, canyoning or caving in the area. Spend time at the lake at Llangorse, 6.5 miles away, or take the children to Cantref Adventure Farm, 3.5 miles away.

Climb the steps into the reception hall at this welcoming, stone detached property, and leave your boots, coats and bags before wandering on through into the kitchen. Light the wood burner in here and carry a pot of tea over to the window seat. Also find everything you need to cook up tasty feasts in the kitchen, plus a table at which to dine with your family and friends, and a handy washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility area. After dinner, settle in the lounge to gaze out across the water meadows or watch TV. On sunny days, throw open the French doors on to the patio and enclosed garden. Discover a WC on the ground floor and the family bathroom up on the first floor: this features a hand-held shower over the bath, twin hand basins and a WC. Your attractive bedrooms are up here too, a super-king-size and a twin, both with oak floors and scenic views over the surroundings.

The beautiful, lawned garden at this Brecon holiday home is framed against a backdrop of verdant, rolling hills. Soak up the sunshine out here, with the Sunday papers and a cup of fresh coffee, while the children play on the lawn. Find parking for two cars at the house.

Excellent value for money, lovely cottage in exceptional location right by the river. Easy stroll into town, with its delightful independent shops and many good hostelries. Great walks right from the door.

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.
