This remote bolthole sits 305m above sea level and consequently boasts spectacular panoramic views across the surrounding countryside.

Wind your way up a long private lane to find this charming cottage which sits on a farmstead with fantastic views. Gaze out at the Offa’s Dyke Path and plan your route on the 177-mile trail which hugs the Welsh/English border. A more relaxing day can be had in the pretty market town of Crickhowell, home to independent shops, ancient inns, arts trails and walking festivals. Access the River Usk from Crickhowell and try your hand at fishing and canoeing before returning home to this quaint dwelling for some peace and quiet.

Wooden features and rich colours flow through the open-plan living space where the kitchen/lounge/diner create the heart of the home. Settle down on the comfortable sofa and the armchair and while away lazy afternoons in front of the TV; sitting beneath exposed beams stay warm with the wood burner effect electric fire. The kitchen area is compact yet has everything you need to cook up a storm, plate up at the dining table and enjoy eating together. Alternatively, you could serve up al fresco and dine outside in the garden, reached by climbing steps, or fire up the BBQ for a sundowner feast. Upstairs, the family bedroom and bathroom are the last remaining rooms. Take care with the sloping ceiling and admire the exposed beams which line the ceiling as you drift off. Enjoy a refreshing shower before or after your explorations and rinse away any aches and pains.

Stepping outside, glorious views will whisk you into holiday mode right away. Take your morning coffee outside and sit at the table under the morning sun. To kick start the day with some exercise, chat to the property owners and take the plunge in the indoor heated pool which has a resistance machine. Onsite stabling facilities mean you can invite your horse on holiday too and head out for rides straight from the farm.

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

Owners were close by and were helpful and friendly. We felt safe and the cottage was clean and well equipped. The surrounding grounds were very pleasant and the view of the hills and mountains was outstanding .

Really enjoyed our stay here . We wanted to get away from it all and could not have picked a better place . The views are beautiful and the whole area is so peaceful and quiet . The cottage itself was clean and comfortable and is ideally suited for a couple who like nothing more than peace and quiet and appreciate the countryside and all it has to Read moreoffer . Also I would like to thank the owners who are more than willing to help you with anything you need know . Hide

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.
