Property code: BN142

A welcoming holiday apartment for two, situated on a 20-acre smallholding, where guests can buy fresh, seasonal produce, and from which they can head off to explore Monmouthshire.

Return from long days out in the scenic Welsh countryside to relax at this elegantly furnished, one-bedroom apartment. Located next door to the owner’s home on a verdant smallholding of 20 acres, the property is the perfect romantic retreat for two. Pack a picnic and head out for the day straight from home; find numerous footpaths and cycle routes in the area. Visit delightful Usk, less than 2 miles away, with its 11th-century castle, beautiful gardens and historic town trail. Follow the Usk Valley Walk for a spell. Visit Raglan too, about 3 miles away, where there is another castle to enjoy. Drive approximately 6 miles to the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, for more walks, cycle rides and mountain hikes. Head about 7 miles in the other direction to find yourselves in the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Head home on chilly afternoons to light the wood burner in the lounge and settle down in its cosy glow to watch TV or a DVD or to enjoy a few chapters of your holiday read. On sunny days, open the French doors to let a cool breeze in or bask in the warmth of the bright conservatory. Take in the beautiful views out over the garden and fields from here. Buy local produce from the smallholding then cook yourselves delicious breakfasts to see you through the day. Prepare candlelit dinners in the kitchen area too with gas hob, electric built-in oven and microwave, fridge and freezer, then dine together at your table. As night falls, follow the quarry-tiled hall down to your inviting double bedroom. Lay your head in here after a shower in your en-suite shower room, which also has a WC.

Wander the grounds of the smallholding to see the sheep, horses, geese, ducks and chickens. Find ample parking at the apartment.

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.
