Property code: BN137

A luxurious glamping retreat perfect for families, within verdant farmland surroundings and close to the well-known cycling hub of Talybont-on-Usk, the beautiful River Usk and the Talybont Reservoir.

Step into nature with a stay at this attractive, canvas safari lodge near Talybont. Sleeping up to six guests, the inviting holiday abode is perfect for guests seeking comfort as well as immersion in the great outdoors. One of three similar lodges on a farm in the Brecon Beacons, the lodge could be the perfect getaway for those who enjoy walking, cycling or fishing. Follow a 7.5-mile section of the Taff Trail from the Talybont Reservoir to the bustling market town of Brecon. Hire a canoe or take an organised trip along a stretch of the Monmouth and Brecon Canal. Drive 6.5 miles to walk up to the beautiful Blaen-y-Glyn Waterfalls.

With gorgeous valley views you enter your exciting holiday lodge via one step onto the veranda. Indulge in seamless inside-outside living thanks to the flow between the covered veranda space and the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Fire up your wood burner on chilly evenings and relax beside it with a good book. Pull up a chair for a hand of cards or set up a board game and gather around. Make warming meals in the kitchen inside or cook under the stars on the fire pit. As night falls, choose between a queen-sized bedroom, a twin room, or snuggle up and enjoy the unique experience of laying your head in the cabin bed area reached via a ladder. Finding your shower room is just as much part of the glamping experience, situated a few steps from the lodge within a self-contained pitch pod, with a shower and WC.

Stoke up the wood-fired hot tub in the morning and by the evening you will have the perfect place to soak in steaming water with a glass of something chilled. Roam the working farm around you to your heart’s content, ask for an official tour if you would like and let the children join in with feeding the chickens. Look out for wildlife in the pond, take out a rowing boat and even go for a swim if you wish.

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

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.
