Property code: BN153

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.

We had a lovely stay at the start of September. The house is very well equipped and spacious, well looked after and felt homely with how it had been decorated. All the bedrooms were of a good size. Big dining table that meant we could all sit down together, sometime you feel cramped in larger houses. The lounge area was ample too. Loved the hot tubRead more and games room! The owners were really helpful, friendly and great local recommendations too. We would definitely recommend and stay again. Hide

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.
