  • Relax in the gorgeous bedroom with its own balcony

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.

Whether you’re a busy couple looking to explore the many cycling trails in the area, or simply looking to relax in a country pub, the cottage is ideally placed. Local pubs are plentiful, the closest a mile away and several others within 3 miles too. It’s 2.5 miles to Llangorse, which has two riding schools and an excellent activity centre with climbing walls and high-rope courses inside. It’s 5 miles to shops and restaurants in Brecon and about 7 miles to the start of popular routes up Pen y Fan.


Enter the house from the private drive within the grounds of the owners home. The open-plan downstairs has a bright airy feel and great views through the French doors to the garden. Relax in the elegant armchairs or on the sofa, where a wood burner will warm you on chilly evenings and there’s a TV for lazy nights in. The well-equipped kitchen has an electric cooker with induction hob, microwave, dishwasher, a washing machine and a stylish Belfast sink, as well as a rustic table to eat at. The shower room downstairs also has a stylish finish with an antique dresser and terracotta tiles. Enjoy the last of the evening sun with an after-dinner coffee outside before heading upstairs to the double bedroom. Nestled in the eaves, the spacious room is flooded with light from both low-level windows and French doors that open onto a balcony. Sit back with a morning coffee or an evening drink in this very lovely private spot overlooking the leafy garden.


The pretty garden has an unusual layout, wrapping itself around the house from the French doors downstairs up and around to the opposite side of the house. Edged with mature trees and shrubs, there are steps leading from the highest point down to the driveway, and two differently located benches to make the most of the sunshine.


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

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!

We wanted a break in a peaceful location with the countryside on our doorstep in a cosy, comfortable, clean property and that's exactly what we got! It was clear the cottage had been cleaned to an exceptional standard (important consideration these days!) The lovely owners were on hand to offer assistance and advice as needed. The cottage had everyRead morething we needed and is well equipped, especially the kitchen. There are plenty of outdoor spots around the cottage to enjoy and many walks on the doorstep, including by nearby Llangorse Lake, where you can also hire boats. 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.
