Property code: BN172

A charming converted Welsh longhouse, with accommodation to suit families or a group of friends. Make the most of warm days out in the garden, then enjoy the elegant and stylish decor inside.

Situated just outside the Brecon Beacons National Park, the property is surrounded by some of the area’s most stunning natural beauty spots and popular attractions. All ages will love a visit to the Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary (7 miles), while there’s plenty of adventure to be had at the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (9 miles). For a scenic picnic spot, make the climb to the romantic ruins of Carreg Cennen Castle (11.5 miles). Further afield, plan a day trip to see the spectacular waterfall Sgwd Yr Eira (23 miles).

Stepping inside the property, head to the stylish kitchen. With rustic brick detailing and a neutral colour scheme, it’s the perfect environment for relaxed cooking, and comes equipped with an electric Range Master cooker with ceramic hob, a dishwasher, microwave, fridge, and freezer. Moving through into the dining room, the mahogany dining table is perfect for family meals, and there’s a matching sideboard for extra crockery space. Exploring further, you’ll find the elegantly furnished lounge. Here you can choose from the soft seating on offer to settle down in front of the wood burner to watch TV. There are also French doors which open onto the patio, affording the room additional natural light. Completing the ground floor is a handy utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer, plus a drying space for coats and boots on a wet day. Leading up the wooden stairs, you’ll reach the property’s three bedrooms. The first of these is a double boasting an en-suite shower room, followed by a second pretty double with a wrought iron bed, and finally a colourful twin. They are served by the smart bathroom, with a shower over the whirlpool bath, and WC. All the upstairs rooms are in the eaves, and therefore have sloping ceilings and low headroom in places

Venturing outside via the French doors, you can sit out and dine alfresco on the patio furniture. There’s a BBQ provided, to enjoy during warm summer afternoons, and the enclosed lawned area is a wonderful space for adults and children alike. Off-road parking is available at the front of 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.
