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.

Get back to nature with this fantastic canvas safari lodge in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Set on a working farm, it is surrounded by wonderful countryside, canal and riverside walks yet just 6.5 miles from the bustling market town of Brecon. Whether you’re nestled beside the roaring wood burner, dining alfresco on the veranda or watching the stars from the wood-fired hot tub, this inside-outside retreat promises memorable getaways for families and friends.

Inside, find a welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with all the comforts of home. Prepare meals in the timber kitchen area before dining at the retro farmhouse-style table. Afterwards, fire up the wood burner and hunker down under this cosy canvas for an evening of games with the family. As night falls, choose between a queen-sized bedroom, a twin room or climb the ladder into the unique cabin bed area. Stoke up the wood-fired hot tub in the morning and by the evening you will have the perfect place to relax and unwind while planning the following day’s activities. Guests are also welcome to roam the working farm, take out a rowing boat on the pond or even head in for a dip.

Surrounded by picturesque farmland, this glamping retreat is perfect for families of outdoor lovers. Follow a 7.5-mile section of the Taff Trail from the Talybont Reservoir to the bustling market town of Brecon. Here you will find a good selection of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, while closer to home, Talybont-on-Usk (0.5 miles) offers a choice of pubs and a small shop. Take to the water by hiring a canoe or taking an organised trip along a stretch of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, or you could drive 6.5 miles to walk up to the beautiful Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls.

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.
