An impressive 18th-century property studded on the banks of the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal boasting roaring fires, a private hot tub and a large garden with beautiful views over the Brecon Beacons.

Gather family and friends and head to bustling Brecon for an adventure-filled getaway. This riverside bolthole exudes charm and character and boasts a private hot tub, just perfect for relaxing in under the stars. After spending your day in the great outdoors, sink into comfortable sofas, warm up by the wood burner and cook up a feast on the Range cooker in the beautiful farmhouse-style kitchen.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of this pretty market town, make yourself at home in this delightful dwelling on the edge of the Brecon Canal. Step inside the house and find yourself surrounded with original oak beams, traditional-style furniture and lap up the warm, welcoming atmosphere. Pop the kettle on in the characterful kitchen, then make your way into the cosy lounge where you can pluck a book from the case and delve in by the roaring wood burner. This dwelling is set over varying levels so take care as you move between rooms. When it’s time to hit the pillow, find one of four bedrooms sitting over three floors and snuggle up for a restful night’s sleep. Wake up and enjoy a coffee in the garden to kick start your day. Once you’re ready to head outside, you don’t need to jump in the car to explore, step outside and follow the River Usk or wander down to the canal basin nearby.

Sitting on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, there are magnificent beauty spots in every direction. For panoramic views, summit the highest peak in South Wales, Pen y Fan, a 6.5-mile trip from your door. From the highest peak to the largest natural lake in South Wales, Llangorse is 7 miles away, where you can try your hand at water sports or stay dry and plan a walk.

Really well kitted out - we were really happy with the indoor and outdoor space!

Reviewed by Mrs Hickley August 2020

Everything was of a very high quality. It was bigger than it looked on the photos. Garden is big, private and lovely. Canal boats gliding past the windows at the front. A short walk along the canal into town - and all the beauty of the Brecon Beacons close by.

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.
