Property code: BN141

A magical Welsh retreat, close to the English border, with spectacular views across the valleys and towards the mountains, and within easy reach of Hay-on-Wye.

Escape to the Welsh countryside with family and friends and leave no one behind as your four-legged friends are welcomed too. Boasting terrific views across peaks, mountains, and valleys, call this delightful dwelling home for a while and enjoy all of its creature comforts. Throw a log on the wood burner for snug evenings in or open the French doors and spend time on the beautiful balcony. Close to well-trodden trails and pretty villages, you can stay close to home or jump in the car in search of adventure.

 

Step inside this rural retreat and make your way into the spacious open-plan living space. The kitchen, lounge and diner all fit together to create the hub of the home where wood-panelled walls add character and a cabin-style feel. Plenty of workspace in the fresh kitchen allows all guests to get on board with cooking, or for easy sundowner meals, fire up the BBQ and dine alfresco. After dinner, relax in the lounge and put your feet up in front of the wood burner which promises to keep you warm and snug. When the day is done, retire to one of three inviting bedrooms for a peaceful night’s sleep. Freshen up with a shower before heading out to enjoy a day in your spectacular surroundings or simply relaxing in the enclosed garden.

 

Sitting just north of the Brecon Beacons, travel 4 miles to the bustling town of Hay-on-Wye which sits on the outskirts of the national park. Here you can grab a bite to eat, roam the plethora of book shops or plan your trip to coincide with the annual literary festival. Throw on your walking boots and head straight from your door onto the well-trodden Offa’s Dyke Path for some of the best scenery around.

Drovers Lodge has stunning views and is very well equipped as a holiday home. We enjoyed siting on veranda in the rain. It is a good base for exploring the borders and Offas Dyke.

Fantastic location, balcony overlooking the Wye Valley and Black Mountains. Simple, comfortable and lovely clean accommodation. Perfect base for exploring the surrounding area or just enjoying the view. The owners could not be more helpful, thank you. We were all made to feel very welcome, including the dog!

Location

Map
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.
