Property code: MAEFS

One of three beautifully furnished properties in the Wye Valley, holding a perfect position to enjoy stunning scenery.

Envisage your perfect staycation at the heart of the countryside, swapping the daily grind for scenic walks, roaring fires and all the delicious local fare you can eat. Brimming with history and set against a rolling backdrop of beautiful grounds and courtyards, this stone barn sleeps five guests across three bedrooms. A short 5-mile drive will bring you to Hay-on-Wye, known for its array of bookshops, friendly hospitality and independent eateries.

Laid out in a reverse-level style with a bathroom and two bedrooms on the ground floor, the property is a pleasing combination of traditional charm and contemporary convenience. The lounge/kitchen/diner is the heart of the home, where you can kick back and relax with a glass of wine and plenty of treats. There are comfortable sofas, tasteful cooking and dining spaces, and pretty views of the garden. The remaining bedroom can also be found upstairs; a delightful master suite with an en-suite shower room. Outside, the surrounding grounds are ideal for evening strolls, and there is a shared table tennis table for some light evening entertainment. Off-road parking is available for three cars.

Adventure to your heart’s content, accessing the River Wye for a riverside walk, or perhaps try a spot of fishing for trout or grayling. Canoeing and kayaking are popular activities on this stunning stretch of river, but you can also take things easy and enjoy gentle ambles across the Brecon Beacons National Park. Pwll y Wrach Nature Reserve 6 miles away is a glorious place to investigate with waterfalls, woodland and scenic trails, especially in the spring when the bluebells create vast blue carpets throughout the trees. Further afield, Llangorse Lake 10 miles away offers water sports and shoreline strolls in equal measures, best enjoyed after a pit stop at the cafe.

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

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.
