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.

Sitting in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, escape to this sweet cottage for a romantic rural retreat or a getaway with family. Boasting views across the Usk Valley and Black Mountains, get a glimpse of the adventures which await. Fire up the wood burner effect electric fire for chilly evenings snuggled up in the cosy lounge or get the BBQ sizzling and enjoy warm evenings dining alfresco on the patio.

Step up and into this cosy cottage where you can sink straight into comfortable sofas to relax and unwind. An exposed brick wall houses an ornamental fireplace where a warming wood burner-effect electric fire now sits, perfect for keeping you toasty after days exploring. The kitchen has everything you need to cook up delicious dinners and is a bright space in which to spend time. Plate up at the smart dining table which comfortably seats four guests so you can enjoy a sociable mealtime and raise a glass. Upstairs, the two bedrooms are treated to fantastic views of the Usk Valley, towards the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Wake up feeling refreshed and head downstairs to the contemporary family bathroom where you can freshen up with a quick shower or soak in the bath before getting ready for the day.

Welcoming your dogs too, you don’t need to travel far to find some of the best walking spots. Throw on a lead and head 3 miles to the largest natural lake in South Wales, Llangorse, or trek 6 miles to the bustling town of Crickhowell where you can refuel for the journey home in one of the dog-friendly pubs. Further afield, make the 15-mile trip to Pen y Fan and summit the highest peak in South Wales for breathtaking panoramic views.

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.
