Property code: BN139

A recently converted Welsh barn for a small family in a traditional courtyard setting, within the magnificent Brecon Beacons National Park and near the canal and River Usk.

Settle into a thoroughly enjoyable break at this beautiful barn conversion near the hamlet of Pencelli, 3 miles from the cathedral town of Brecon. Up to four guests are welcome to stay at the two-bedroom cottage, which is set within the surroundings of an 18th-century farmhouse. Watch the bright barges pass on the canal and even hire one yourselves. Walk along the towpath to Brecon, passing Brynich Aquaduct on your way. Spend time browsing in the town’s independent shops, pick up some local produce and head home after a cup of tea and a Welsh cake. Keen cyclists can also follow a section of the 55-mile Taff Trail, which runs from Brecon to Cardiff Bay and passes close by.

Enter your attractive, stone barn conversion via one step to find single-storey accommodation that blends modern living with rustic style. Beautiful exposed beams make quite a statement, yet this holiday home is also bright, airy and inviting. At the heart of the property is the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where you can stoke up the wood burner, relax on the comfortable seating and watch TV, listen to a CD or the DAB radio. Whip up a few tasty dishes in your well-equipped kitchen, complete with electric oven, microwave, fridge (access to a shared freezer), dishwasher and washing machine, and then enjoy them together around the table. Choose between two equally inviting bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, both with characterful sloping ceilings, and indulge in a long hot bubble bath at the end of the day in the stylish bathroom.

Soak up the sunshine in the courtyard in front of the barn and even enjoy breakfast out here on warm mornings. You’ll find you have generous parking at the holiday home and that bike storage is also available.

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

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.
