Property code: BN434

Enjoying a lovely position at the top of a private garden, this welcoming holiday property is located close to Hay-on-Wye at the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Accommodating two guests, this cosy wooden cabin provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway to South Wales.

Escape to the gorgeous, undulating Welsh countryside for an idyllic romantic retreat in this cosy cabin. Nestled amongst the trees with views across the majestic Brecon Beacons, make the most of the outside spaces, of which there are many. Spend chilly evenings inside by the TV and relax before the adventures continue. Close to the peaceful hamlet of Clyro (less than a mile), wander into the village for a delicious meal or head further afield to the literary town of Hay-on-Wye (2 miles) and peruse the plethora of quaint book shops.

Sitting atop the owner’s private garden, boasting fantastic views, this pretty lodge is filled with natural light and floral furnishings. Climb a short, wide staircase, cross the decking and step inside your home from home. You’ll find the open-plan living space where the bedroom and lounge area fit together perfectly for cosy evenings in front of the TV. Sitting at the front of the cabin, this area benefits from the beautiful views and easy access to the decking where you can enjoy a cold tipple at night or a warming mug of coffee when you wake. Step through to the kitchen which has a fresh, contemporary feel and houses a small table at which you can dine together. You won’t need to travel far for a romantic evening; light the firepit or swing in the hanging chair and enjoy each other’s company in this picturesque setting.

Roam the acre of garden with its small orchard or hop in the car and make the 24-mile journey to the highest peak in South Wales, Pen-y-Fan, where the climb rewards you with panoramic views. From the highest peak to the largest natural lake in South Wales, visit Llangorse Lake (13 miles) for a waterside walk.

Cabin was beautiful, clean and peaceful - just what we were looking for. Close enough to pop into Hay on Wye and the Breacons. Jodie, the host, was very friendly and quick to check if everything was ok or anything else was needed- which it wasnt. The bottle of chilled wine was much appreciated

A very nice cabin and well equipped for two if you just want to sit and watch the world go by, or a base to go out and explore what Wales have to offer. The owner Jodi is a very nice lady to talk to and very helpful.

The cabins at Forest Escape are tranquil and offer a relaxing home from home. Theyre a great base to explore the Welsh countryside or a great place to chill if youre after peace and quiet.

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.
