One of four beautiful lodges enjoying a great location within the heart of the Brecon Beacons, finished with a spacious and contemporary style and perfect for groups wishing to get together to celebrate.

The picturesque village of Talybont-on-Usk is only 0.5 miles away with its local stores, pubs, and eateries. The tranquil Talybont Reservoir offers gentle strolls around the water’s edge listening to the distant birdsong or enjoying the stunning cascades of the nearby Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls (7.5 miles). Take to the water at Talybont-on-Usk with a kayak adventure along the river, or why not enjoy a nostalgic steam train ride through the stunning countryside at the Brecon Mountain Railway (10 miles)? The cathedral town of Brecon is well worth a visit with its quaint streets and independent stores. Visit the famous literary town of Hay-on-Wye (20 miles) and browse the bookstores before enjoying a ramble along the riverbank.

Enjoy the views across the valley before you step inside this beautiful lodge, finished to a high standard and perfect for groups wanting to get away and enjoy the countryside. The open-plan living space has been well configured, offering guests a cosy space to relax and unwind in front of the wood burner. For dining, there is a table and chairs and for the chef amongst you, there’s a bespoke kitchen that is well-equipped to offer an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with an ice compartment, dishwasher and washing machine. A generously sized double bedroom with garden views offers access to an en-suite bathroom with a separate shower and WC. The twin room enjoys valley views, and a king-size mezzanine bedroom is accessed from the lounge area. There is also a family bathroom with a bath, shower, and WC.

Outside, the garden has an open aspect within sympathetically landscaped grounds. There is a hot tub where you can relax and enjoy the dark skies, as well as a table and chairs for dining and a BBQ. There is guest parking for two cars within the on-site car park.

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.
