Property code: BN174

This stylish safari lodge is ideal for a glamping getaway with friends and family. Discover the working farm and explore the Brecon Beacons National Park, then return to soak tired limbs in the hot tub.

With the lodge as your base, you can make the most of what the National Park has to offer, including its many walking routes. As well as gentle rambles, keen hikers can head to Pen y Fan (15 miles), the highest mountain in South Wales and a popular peak to climb. Talybont village is 1 mile away, with a selection of friendly local inns and a shop for replenishing your supplies. Further afield, visit the market town of Brecon for its museum, art gallery, and 11th-century cathedral. History lovers will find a number of castle ruins in the area, including Tretower Court (6.5 miles) and Crickhowell (9 miles).

From the veranda, a step up takes you inside the main lodge and straight into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. There are two comfortable sofas either side of the wood burner, so you can curl up on cool evenings. The rustic kitchen area reflects the outside environment with its natural wood units and comes complete with a gas hob, fridge and microwave for home-cooked meals. Eat at the dining table or take your food onto the veranda and the pretty picnic bench overlooking the valley. Also in the living area is the double cabin bed, fully self-contained in its own raised wooden unit and accessed via a four-rung ladder. Continue to the back of the lodge, where you’ll find the remaining two bedrooms, a double and a twin. Both have colourful throws for a warm night’s sleep, and bedside tables with reading lamps. The twin also boasts a large wardrobe with drawers for handy storage space.

Venturing outside, a few metres from the lodge is your private ‘Pitch Pod’ containing a shower and WC. On the grass surrounding the lodge is a fire pit and at the side of the property is the wood-fired hot tub. In the next field is a lake where you can either go for a swim, or paddle around in the rowing boat, and guests are welcome to explore the farm. Off-road parking is available in a neighbouring field.

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

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.
