Escape to this glorious barn conversion where contemporary features complement the rustic charm of the original building, the perfect home to return to after exploring the surrounding cycle paths, trails and mountains.

Boasting fantastic views from every window, of which some are maintained originals with quirky shapes, this bolthole sits in the shadow of the ancient fort, Castell Dinas. Less than 0.5 miles from the Black Mountains Gliding Club, ditch your hiking boots for the day and try your hand at something more airborne. The open-plan living space creates a welcoming space to gather up post adventure with plenty of room for all guests to settle down in style.

Sink into comfortable sofas and chairs in the lounge area and switch on the TV for a moment of relaxation. Fire up the wood burner for warmth and then wander through into the kitchen to pop the kettle on. Plenty of workspace means mealtimes are easy and the abundance of storage space also comes in handy when catering for large numbers. The dining area boasts lush views through the large double doors. With four bedrooms set over two floors the ground floor rooms consist of a twin room and a double with en-suite shower. Soak in the bath in the downstairs family bathroom or freshen up in the shower over the bath. Climbing the feature staircase to the first floor you will pass the ‘floating’ landing with beautiful exposed beams. Find the remaining two bedrooms and family shower room on this floor; both have Velux windows so you can kick start the day with incredible views. Take care with the sloping ceilings in first floor rooms.

Enjoy a summer feast on the BBQ and sit down at the garden furniture in the large grounds. With off-road parking and plenty of bike storage this property is great for outdoor lovers.

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.
