  • Handsome stone cottage on the edge of Brecon town
  • Ideal for walks through the beautiful Brecon Beacons
  • Picturesque views across water meadows and the River Usk
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.

Escape your everyday routine and make yourself at home in this welcoming bolthole. Perfect for that post-adventure cup of tea, or a cosy family day by the wood burner, find your spot and put your feet up for some rest and relaxation. Sitting on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, in the charming town of Brecon, you won’t have to travel far to find peaks, pubs, and picturesque views. The spacious rooms and sweeping lawn will whisk you right into holiday mode from the moment you arrive.

 

Backed by rolling hills and lush landscapes, this peaceful dwelling has a light and airy, yet cosy and comfortable feel. Climb the steps and make your way inside where you are welcomed by inviting sofas, a warming wood burner for chilly days, and French doors. Enjoy quality time in the lounge where you can snuggle up with a book or switch on the TV and lose yourself in your favourite programme. Light floods in through the French doors with far-reaching views across the trees and hills beyond. Cook up a storm in the kitchen and get the wood burner roaring, before plating up at the table and raising a glass to the great outdoors. When it’s time to rest your head, head upstairs where you will find the super-king-size bedroom and the twin room.

 

The cottage sits in the bustling market town of Brecon with its majestic cathedral, Brecon Canal basin, and a handful of delicious eateries. Make your way into the national park and summit Pen y Fan (6 miles), visit the largest natural lake in South Wales, Llangorse (8.5 miles), or treat the little ones and plan a family day out to Cantref Adventure Farm (4 miles).

Large comfortable rooms and the biggest double bed I've ever slept in. 5 mins from Brecon centre in one direction but very rural in the other.

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.
