Property code: BN166

The ideal retreat for an adventurous family or group of friends. Relax in chic rooms before heading into the great unknown of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

A walkers’ delight, pack your bags and head to this charming abode which sits in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Your dog is invited to call this cottage home too, so you can harness up and go in search of the best stick-chasing spots around. You can gaze at the highest peak in South Wales, Pen y Fan, from the comfort of your own home, and enjoy walks straight from your door to the quaint village of Bwlch (1 mile).

Step inside the entrance hall, a great place for leaving muddy leads and boots when you get back from adventures. The open-plan living space is flooded with natural light and is home to a wood burner which will keep any chills at bay and make sure you’re comfortable and snug. Relax on the sofa and admire far-reaching views through the patio doors, or switch on the TV and lose yourself in your favourite programme. If you’re not heading out for dinner, cook up a storm in the airy kitchen where there’s plenty of space to rustle up something delicious. Plate up and tuck in either at the dining table, or outside on the patio for an al fresco dinner. Outside, there is storage for bikes so you can rest your head knowing they are safe. Climb stairs and make yourself comfortable in one of two light, tranquil rooms. In the morning, freshen up in the shower over the bath, or soak in the tub for a relaxing start.

A 3-mile walk will take you to Talybont-on-Usk, a pretty village with two rivers and a canal flowing through it, a handful of waterfalls nearby, and dog-friendly pubs where you can grab a bite to eat. Hop in the car and make the 15-mile journey to Pen y Fan, a climb rewarded with spectacular views.

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

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.
