  • Elegant country cottage, perfect for hikers and cyclists
  • Relax in the gorgeous bedroom with its own balcony
  • Delightful garden that envelops the house
Property code: BN157

This beautifully presented one-bedroom cottage with country charm, enjoys a quiet spot at the edge of the national park with easy access to the many walks and trails.

Escape to this romantic cottage for two, tucked away in a picturesque location, near Pennorth, and set within the grounds of the owner’s property. Drive 2.5 miles to Llangorse Lake, with its opportunities for water sports and outdoor activities. Take a contented canine with you and set his tail wagging with long walks straight from home. Return to the cottage to light the wood burner and bask in its glow or to sit out on the balcony or in the garden as the sun goes down.

 

Open the front door to this pretty cottage and step into an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Throw open the French doors on warm, summer days. Fire up the wood burner when it’s chilly and settle down in front of the TV. Wander through to the kitchen area at mealtimes to find it has an electric cooker with induction hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. Dine together at the table or outside in the fresh air. Find the shower room at ground-floor level and the bedroom, with its king-size bed, on the floor above. Discover this enchanting room, with its sloping ceiling, benefits from a door on to the balcony. Take your cup of tea out here in the morning. Spend time out in the lawned garden, where you can enjoy a few pages of your book as you soak up the sunshine on the bench.

 

Explore the Brecon Beacons from your location right on the edge of the national park. Walk for either 1 or 3 miles, depending on your energy levels, for refreshment in a country pub. Drive 7 miles to walking routes up Pen y Fan, the highest peak in South Wales, or 5 miles to amble through Brecon, with its many colourful shops, and perhaps to dine out in a café or restaurant.

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

Lovely cottage in good location to explore Brecon Beacons area, we were lucky to have glorious weather and enjoyed sitting in the beautiful garden and on the balcony. Llangors lake and reservoir nearby and worth visiting.

The cottage is lovely and perfectly located to explore the Brecons and surround. There are routes to walk from the cottage so you don't always need the car. We had the most amazing time. Follow Janets advice about what to visit whilst you're there and won't go awry - in particular Hay-on-Wye for the market on a Thursday and the Venison Centre Farm Read moreShop. I'd recommend the Penderyn whiskey and local ales go down a treat. Hide

Did we have a lovely time in south Wales? Absolutely. Did the cottage provide a great base? Overall, it certainly did. In most ways the cottage is ideal for a couple. Probably ideal for certain dogs, too. The cottage is a lovely space in a wonderful area.

Excellent cottage. Provides everything you need. Very comfortable and cosy. Really nice little private garden. Nice local walks out of the door and within easy reach of other walking locations and amenities. Lovely helpful family. We would definitely go there again and would recommend it to others.

Finch Cottage was extremely comfortable and well equipped. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. If there was a downside it would be the lack of WiFi and no bath but they were not major issues. We would definitely like to visit again ... in the hope that the weather was a bit drier next time!

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.
