A luxurious detached property, which is perfect for celebratory breaks or group holidays, capturing spectacular countryside views and with a hot tub and games room.

Sitting near the vibrant town of Builth Wells, whisk family and friends away to this stylish bolthole which boasts verdant views, a warming wood burner and a bubbling hot tub. Whether you’re traipsing in from adventures in the Brecon Beacons or enjoying lazy days in the country, this home from home has everything you need. Leave nobody behind and bring your dogs along too, the enclosed garden is perfect for a morning game of fetch.

Climb the stairs to the first floor where the hub of the home welcomes you inside. The open-plan sleek kitchen/diner boasts magnificent views across the valley and is a great space in which to cook up a storm. After long days exploring you may not feel like cooking, if so, make the most of the private chef who is available for booking so you can relax before dinner. To cosy up in style, head into the lounge where a roaring wood burner will keep you warm and comfortable sofas invite you to kick back. Descend steps to bubble the night away in your private hot tub or challenge competitive guests in the games room. When day turns to night, rest your head in one of five bedrooms. All the bedrooms are decorated in calming tones and one sits on the first floor whilst the rest make up the ground floor along with the family bathroom. Wake up and make your way onto the balcony for a breath of fresh air and a mug of something warm.

If you can escape the creature comforts of this eco-friendly abode, pop on your walking boots or drive 2 miles into Builth Wells and roam the remains of Builth Castle. The market town of Hay-on-Wye, often known as the ‘Town of Books’ is slightly further afield at 20 miles from home.

Fairbanks is a gorgeous gorgeous property. We were a family of eight, 12 yrs to 72 yrs plus our flatcoat. Hot tub, games room, all were used. Plenty of space to be together or do own thing. Beds were so so comfy. Plenty of bathroom, ensuite facilities. Furnishings were of high quality. Debbie, the owner, couldn't do enough for you. Gardens were supRead moreerb for pooch and young and old playing badminton. It truly is a fantastic holiday home. Hide

All that was needed was there. All clean and tidy. Plenty of room for the six of us. All rooms are great. Probably the best place we have stayed.

We had such an amazing holiday. The house overlooks beautiful views and has a south facing balcony where we spent most evenings. The house was spotlessly clean and equiped for all of our needs. There is a really good BBQ and large seating area and a lovely lawn where the children could play. The hot tub and games room were a real highlight for everRead moreyone as well as the large seating area and BBQ. House is in a secluded location but Builth was only 5 minutes drive away for all the amenities. Hide

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.
