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.

This charming cottage enjoys a position in the very heart of the Brecon Beacons. Pack your walking boots and head off on an adventure into the hills. Join the National Cycle Route 8 and tear down country lanes with the Black Mountains ahead of you. In less than a mile you’ll find yourselves in Bwlch, where you can pick up your fresh groceries at the farm shop and enjoy a pint at the village pub. A further two miles and you can explore the pretty, watery town of Talybont-on-Usk.

The cottage itself sits down a quiet lane. The main living space is an open-plan area, washed by light from dual aspect windows. There’s a entrance hall where you can leave dirty coats and shoes, and a downstairs wet room, so you can wash off the mountains before relaxing in the lounge. Gaze out at the rugged skyline as you relax on the comfy sofas beside the wood pellet stove. Rustle up a family feast in the amply equipped kitchen to power your next adventure. And when you’re all tuckered out, two light and tranquil bedrooms await upstairs.

Outside the property, there’s a patio garden with outdoor furniture and a BBQ, ideal for enjoying an al fresco meal, plus facilities for washing off and storing bikes ready for the next adventure.

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

beautifully appointed with lovely wood chip burner, very easy to use. Great views. Very good info on local walks. My dog was very happy there.

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.
