Property code: BN144

Surrounded by rolling farmland, and the hills and valleys of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this enchanting cottage, approximately 4 miles from Crickhowell, enjoys a truly magical setting.

While away the hours gazing out across the mesmerising Usk Valley to the Sugar Loaf Mountain in the distance from this standout stone cottage in the Brecon Beacons. Set on a sheep farm, this one-bedroom property next to the owner’s house sleeps up to three people. With its stunning location and characteristic interior, it’s not hard to see why this traditional Welsh cottage featured in Great Escapes Magazine and ITV1’s Home Sweet Holiday Home.


Blending exquisite antique pieces and a feature stone fireplace with modern home comforts, the cottage is an inviting place to relax after a day of adventures. Savour meals prepared with fresh local ingredients in the traditional cottage kitchen before basking in the glow of the wood burner in the living room as you watch TV or curl up on the sofa to read. Up the stairs is a galleried landing, where you’ll find a single bed. The main bedroom and bathroom are also on this level. On a sunny morning, enjoy a leisurely breakfast out on the private terrace and, on warm evenings, fire up the BBQ for an al fresco supper.


Enjoy outdoor pursuits including hill walking, climbing, pony trekking and mountain biking, and explore the Llanthony Valley, one of the most beautiful valleys in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The small but perfectly formed town of Crickhowell is 3.5 miles from the property. Here you can visit the castle remains, walk by the River Usk or treat yourself to a slice of homemade cake in a tearoom. Foodies won’t want to miss Abergavenny (6.5 miles), known for its fresh produce and wonderful restaurants.

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.
