Property code: BN155

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 in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, the property has a welcoming feel. It’s around 1 mile from the visitor centre to pick up maps and local information. Local pubs can be found in Libanus and Sunnybridge, both around 3 miles from the house, while the attractive market town of Brecon, 6 miles away, is a pleasant place to explore with a collection of shops and restaurants.

Shed the coats and boots in the entrance hall of this traditional farm worker’s cottage, and step into the fantastic country kitchen full of original features from the flagstone floor to the atmospheric beams. Enjoy family meals cooked on the range oven, at the circular pine table with views over the garden, and get the kids helping out with the washing up in the Belfast sink. Sink into the sofas after a day out in the wilderness and watch a family movie or get the wood burner going and warm the toes on cold evenings. Upstairs, the pitched roof and latched doors add a lovely character to the two bedrooms. An additional single bed in the double room, plus a twin room allows plenty of choice for families to settle in, and the family bathroom on the same floor has a corner bath that young kids will love a wallow in, as well as a useful shower.

Outside the enclosed garden has furniture for sunny picnics, and a rotary dryer to get those emergency washing loads turned around quickly.

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

Lovely cottage, beautiful location


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.
