A wonderfully converted barn, which retains charming original features whilst offering luxurious accommodation for a large group. An ideal rural retreat for escaping the everyday hustle and bustle.

For a group that wants a remotely located place to stay and socialise in, this spacious stone property offers a comfortable hideaway in the mountains of Mid Wales. Stock up on supplies and go for meals out in the small town of Llanwrtwyd Wells (1.5 miles). Walking and biking are very popular in the area with options to suit all ages and abilities. There’s everything from a ramble through local nature and wildlife reserves such as RSPB Gwenffrwd-dinas (8 miles) which you can reach on foot from the property, to the notoriously steep ascent of the so-called Devil’s Staircase (7 miles).

A 13-mile drive will take you inside the Brecon Beacons National Park, with its many natural beauty spots, and popular attractions.

Inside, the decor is elegant and all the rooms have been furnished with a wonderful attention to detail. You enter the property via a rear entrance, taking you into the lower ground floor, where you’ll find the first of the five bedrooms, a pretty twin. On the ground floor, step into the sitting room, an open room with a wood burner and large windows overlooking scenic views of the valley. Moving through to the main lounge, which is raised by a few internal steps, you’ll find sofas and armchairs gathered round the TV and DVD/Blu-ray, perfect for film nights together. Back through the sitting room, a few more steps will take you into the bright kitchen/diner, equipped with a range-style cooker, dishwasher, and a table seating ten. Completing the ground floor are two rooms which will come in handy after days out walking or biking in the countryside: a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer (plus fridge/freezer), and a shower room. Four further bedrooms can be found up the handmade oak staircase in the sitting room. Along the landing are three king-size bedrooms, two of which have an en-suite shower room, as well as a pretty double. Finally, there is a family bathroom with a bath, separate shower, and WC. The bedrooms feature exposed beams and sloped or vaulted ceilings, adding to the property’s traditional charm.

Outside is an enclosed lawned garden, where you can host a BBQ, dine alfresco, and enjoy a soak in the hot tub. Bike storage is available, as well as grazing for a horse or pony. There is ample off-road parking beside the property.

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.
