Boasting International Dark Sky Reserve status, escape to this charming cottage for around the clock adventures; perfect for a romantic retreat or an escape from the hustle and bustle.

Walk out of your door and onto well-trodden paths along the canal for a gentle stroll towards a handful of tasty eateries. Or jump on your bike and take to The Taff Trail which runs for 55 miles between Cardiff and Brecon. When you run out of steam head back home and fire up the wood burner as you settle down in the lounge area. Two and four-legged guests can sneak out into the enclosed garden for a breath of fresh air or take a moment on the balcony for some peace and quiet.

Walk the pretty garden path and enter this terraced cottage through the kitchen/lounge/diner. Set in an ornamental fireplace the wood burner throws heat into the space so you can curl up on the sofa and switch on the TV in comfort. The well-equipped kitchen is a bright space with natural light flooding in through the patio doors. Perfect for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts you can throw off muddy boots and hang up your coats in the entrance porch; if you get caught in the rain make use of the electric clothes drier, too. The first floor is home to the master room, bathroom with shower over the bath and access to the balcony space, ideal for a morning brew. Head up to the second floor and find the single bedroom with sloping ceiling and far reaching views across the valley to The Allt Mountain.

Welcomed by blooming florals on entry, the charm continues to the rear of the property as you step out into the enclosed garden. Take a seat on the patio furniture in the sheltered area . A BBQ provides a welcome treat in the summer and the onsite bike storage is a great extra for those looking to cycle their way around the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The cottage was exactly as described. It was extremely clean and tidy and very comfortable. Books, videos and jigsaws were provided and the kitchen stocked with equipment for a fully self catering holiday. The location was perfect for local pubs and as a base for exploration. With a canal running through it it was also perfect for short strollsRead more along the river bank. Very friendly little village. Hide

A lovely cottage in an excellent location. The cottage was very pretty and well equipped. A lovely garden too. Some of the outdoor furniture could do with replacing but apart from that very good

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.
