  • Homely period cottage with views of the Black Mountains
  • Set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Within the village of Bwlch, overlooking the Usk Valley
Property code: BN138

A cosy retreat, dating back to the 17th century and situated in a village, with shops and a pub, yet also ideally positioned for walks and mountain hikes in the Brecon Beacons.

Head straight out into the hills of the Brecon Beacons from this inviting holiday home at Bwlch. The two-bedroom period cottage, which sleeps up to three guests, looks out over the beautiful Usk Valley and towards the Black Mountains. Go climbing, caving or horse-riding in the national park. From your front door, walk approximately 3 miles to the largest natural lake in South Wales, at Llangorse. Go fishing, sailing or windsurfing while you are here. Visit the medieval manor house of Tretower Court and Castle and then venture into Crickhowell, 6 miles, from your cottage to browse in the pretty town, see the castle ruins and perhaps enjoy a meal out.


Feel immediately at home within this traditional cottage, entered via one step. Relax in the cosy lounge, where an electric fire has been fitted into a large stone fireplace and has a set of steep stone stairs (not in use) rising up behind it. Search for your favourite programme on TV or settle down in front of a DVD. Wander through to the kitchen/diner to make yourself a cup of tea or to prepare a delicious dinner. Sit around the table together to enjoy your meal. A family bathroom, complete with bath with shower over, and WC, is on the ground floor too. Both of the bedrooms can be found upstairs, capturing superb views down the Usk Valley and over towards the Sugar Loaf Mountain.


Return home on warm days to sit out on the patio to the front of your cottage. Light the BBQ to enjoy dinner out in the fresh air or simply have a sundowner before heading inside. Parking for one car is available.

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.
