Beautiful cottage with fantastic views of the Welsh countryside. Comfortable spaces and quiet location, making it the ideal place for a peaceful city getaway. The house is only three hours away from London and close to fantastic walks in the Wye Valley. Well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and excellent bed linen. I was concerned that it was a dogRead more-friendly cottage, but the house was clean with no traces of previous people or pets. I would love to go back again. Hide

You wont be disappointed. The cottage is warm, comfortable and beautifully furnished. Plenty of equipment in the kitchen to cook a feast if you wanted. Waking up to the sounds of only the birds and lambs in the surrounding fields was heavenly. I could have stayed a lot longer! Thank you

We had a wonderful week at the Fox & Hounds Cottage in October. It was our first outing since the start of the pandemic, and we were apprehensive, but it was a great choice. Very clean, quite isolated, and we managed to bring everything we needed with us. The cottage is super: well equipped with necessities, great for the dogs, with wonderful walksRead more both straight out of the door and within a short drive. We had lovely walks and cosy evenings in front of the wood burner. We'll be back! Hide

It's pretty, very characterful and nicely contemporary. The hosts are friendly and helpful. The location is very rural, offering walks from the door and good views of the valley. It's located quite away from grocery shops and any other entertainment. Great for dog owners. Couple of decent pubs within a short drive. Nice log burner in the colder monRead moreths. A good retreat, which could benefit from some more TLC and a few more personal touches to make it shine. Hide

Map
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.
