Enjoying a rural location with far-reaching views across the valley, this spacious farmhouse is great for families and groups that want to get together and make the most of the outdoors.

Set high in the uninterrupted Llanover Valley and surrounded by farmland, you will find plenty to do here. There are well-marked footpaths from the door which you can follow to explore Blaenavon Common or head to the local country pub. This is also a great spot for discovering the breathtaking scenery and exciting attractions of the Brecon Beacons National Park, with The Big Pit at Blaenavon, Brecon Mountain Railway, Zip World Tower, and Raglan Farm Park all within 30 miles. For walkers, you can enjoy the Black Mountains (19 miles), Blorenge (5.5 miles), and Pen y Fan (32 miles). The area also serves cyclists and water sports enthusiasts well. The rivers of the Usk and Wye Valley are 5 and 30 miles away respectively, whilst Llandegfedd Reservoir is 8.5 miles away and Llangorse Lake is 22 miles.

Enjoy the views as you climb up the valley towards the farmhouse, set within its own grounds and bound with traditional stone walling that further adds to its charm. Step into the porch where you can leave your boots after a day in the hills. Step onto the original stone slate flagstones which leads you into a cosy lounge that is perfect for getting together in front of the large wood burner, here you’ll also find board games, books, and a TV. From here you can access the spacious kitchen/diner, the hub of the house, with a well-equipped kitchen for the chef amongst you, which includes an electric oven and hob, microwave, coffee machine, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. There is a generously sized table and chairs that are perfect for a hearty supper. There is a twin bedroom on the ground floor and a shower room with WC. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, all of which benefit from king-size beds. There is also a family bathroom with a walk in shower and a separate bath plus WC.

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.
