Property code: BN168

This colourful, contemporary cottage sits in a majestic spot just half a mile from the River Usk. With an extensive garden and uninterrupted views, it’s the perfect venue for an artistic retreat

The house enjoys a secluded rural location on the edge of the pretty hamlet, Pennorth. From your door, you can set off on walks along the footpaths that snake into the hills. With stables beside the cottage, you can even bring your own horse and take advantage of the glorious riding trails here. Or if you fancy taking in some ancient history, hike 2 miles to Allt Mountain, home to an Iron Age fortress.

The cottage itself is a spacious home, architect-designed in the 60s. It retains the spirit of that era, with bright, colourful rooms and a celebratory feel. Make home in the large lounge, curl up on the sofas beside the TV and wood burner, or relax in the sunny conservatory which has uninterrupted views out on the Usk Valley. The kitchen and dining area are ideal for hosting group meals while enjoying the wide-ranging views. After a busy day, head to your peaceful bedrooms, from king-size to bunk beds, so everyone can find a hideaway to suit them. On the ground floor you'll find a super-king-size room (can be made into a twin) with an en-suite shower room; a twin room, and a bunk room. The latter two bedrooms share a bathroom. On the first floor, you’ll find a king-size bedroom, a double bedroom and another king-size room which can be made into twin beds on request, along with a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Outside the property has a magnificent garden with a sociable patio area and a long sloping lawn. Enjoy an al fresco meal at the picnic tables, a game on the grass, or explore the little orchard at the end of the plot.

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.
