Perfectly laid out for families with young children, this cosy cottage is an ideal base for an outdoorsy holiday, with ample walks of varying lengths nearby, and plenty of garden space too.

Set on a small courtyard with just three other cottages, this charming property is perfect for family holidays in the beautiful Brecon Beacons. Brimming with original features inside, from its flagstone floor to its exposed beams and inglenook fireplace, there is also plenty of space outside in the enclosed garden for al fresco meals and games with the dog. Spend your days exploring the Brecon Beacons’ peaks, valleys and waterways on foot before returning to the village pub for a hearty meal.

Cosy yet light and airy, this is a welcoming home from home for memorable family holidays. Cook up a storm on the range oven in the traditional kitchen with its flagstone floor and atmospheric beams, before dining at the pine table overlooking the garden. Afterwards, retreat to the lounge for a relaxing evening spent watching a family movie while the wood burner crackles away. Upstairs, two delightful bedrooms sit beneath a pitched roof with charming sash windows and wooden floors. When the sun is shining, dine alfresco in the enclosed garden below.

Located in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this property is an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and adventure lovers. Conquer the mighty Pen y Fan (5.5 miles), admiring its breathtaking elevated views along the way, or take to the water with a day of kayaking, boating or water skiing on Llangorse Lake (11.5 miles). The bustling market town of Brecon is home to an array of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and leisure attractions while a popular local pub can be found closer to home in nearby Libanus (1 mile).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Adders have been sighted in the vicinity, not unusual for Breconshire but not in all areas. The cottage is very cosy and warm and in a lovely secluded location. Were it not for the risk to our little dog we would definitely visit again but must now return to cottages in other Brecon locations.

This cottage is really cosy and a perfect base for exploring the Beacon Beacons. Start with Fan Frynych which can be walked from the front door! There is ample space for either a couple or a young family. All the rooms are a good size. If it's chilly and you persevere the wood burner in the living room is lovely. There's a decent size garden too, aRead morend plenty of animals to visit in the nearby fields. We loved it! Hide

Sweet but basic cottage (in need of some TLC) in a beautiful location. No frills (lots of the fixtures and fittings need attention) but a great base for exploring the Brecon Beacons. If you have a dog, beware of free range chickens next door that come into the garden!

A lovely homely, well laid out and looked after cottage in a perfect and quiet location. The kitchen is well equipped with a good sized range, fridge and freezer, and with independent butchers and farm shops in and around Brecon made it perfect for self catering. The track in front of the cottage was great for quick walks with the dog or the start Read moreof a longer beautiful walk up Fan Frynych and beyond. The proximity to the A470 meant it was a great base from which to explore the Brecon Beacons. 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.
