A contemporary eco-home for a large group, with magnificent walks from the doorstep and featuring an abundance of glass, wonderful views and bright and airy living spaces.

Immerse yourselves in a green yet luxurious style of living at this impressive, environmentally-friendly home in the Honddu Valley. Situated at Lower Chapel, approximately 5 miles from the historic town of Brecon, and within a small eco-community, the striking property sleeps up to eight guests and could be ideal for a celebration or two families holidaying together. Pack a picnic and head straight out on long walks through your picturesque, hilly surroundings. Venture into the Brecon Beacons National Park for more walking, as well as mountain biking, pony-trekking, canoeing and caving. While away a few hours shopping in colourful Brecon, browsing in the indoor market and stopping for tea and Welsh cakes in a cafe.

Make your way into this stunning, glass property via the entrance hall and find yourselves in the spacious, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Savour the contemporary style of the space, with its cutting-edge design and bright, comfortable furniture and furnishings. Light the Scandinavian-style wood burner on chilly days and open the glass doors on to the balcony when the weather is warm. Recline on the sofa to gaze out at the views, create tasty meals for your entire party in the chic kitchen (up a step) and serve at the long table which comfortably seats eight guests. Play a board game or watch TV on the L-shaped sofa later in the evening or read a book in the quieter winter garden room, which adjoins the main space. There is also a study with a desk, a large cupboard for storing outdoor gear, and a handy utility room with a WC, washing machine and tumble dryer on the ground floor. Follow the stairs up to the first floor, where all of the bedrooms are situated. The king-size bedroom has glorious views and an en-suite shower room, while the remaining double bedrooms share the family bathroom, which has a bath with shower over, as well as a WC.

Dine out on the splendid decked area as often as the weather permits. Watch the children play out on the lawn in the enclosed garden and light the BBQ on summer evenings. There is parking for two cars at the house, but additional space 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.
