Nestled beside the Clydach River within the natural beauty of the Clydach Gorge (itself an SSSI) the cottage is close to an abundance of trails and paths to explore, so pack your hiking boots and escape to the country.

This charming bolthole is the perfect home from home for families and friends to enjoy together. The large patio is great for dining alfresco and basking in the sun or you can cosy up by the wood burner which keeps the heart of the home welcoming and warm. Arranged over one level, you can enjoy a relaxed family holiday together.

 

The open-plan living space consists of a light kitchen with a dining table, and the inviting lounge area. Sprawl on the sofa and bask in the warmth of the roaring wood burner or pop the kettle on in the kitchen where you have all the equipment needed to cook up a storm. Plate up at the dining table or serve up a sizzling BBQ on the patio. Sitting in the grounds of the owner’s house, the garden spaces are beautifully kept so you can enjoy the outside space just as much as the inside. Both bedrooms are decorated in sumptuous tones and have en-suites so you can freshen up for the day with ease. Filled with natural light which floods in through floor-to-ceiling windows, the bedrooms are tranquil and calming spaces in which you should have no trouble drifting off.

 

Located in the charming village of Clydach, hop on the Clydach Gorge Walk straight from your door, or travel 2 miles to the neighbouring village of Gilwern where you can tuck into a tasty meal. Book on a Brecon Beacons Tour which leaves from Abergavenny Station and takes you past panoramic peak tops, tumbling waterfalls and majestic mountains.

Very clean and well appointed cottage. Easy starting point for many day trips, even made it over to Rhossili within 90min. Particularly enjoyed having a gas BBQ and well appointed kitchen to enjoy meal times.

This cottage has been converted from old stables into a very comfortable cottage with two bedrooms, one at each end of the cottage, each with its own en-suite. The kitchen has everything you need including dishwasher and washing machine. The cottage is set in the owners garden and the whole area is very secluded. There is a river just behind the prRead moreoperty but its all fenced off. No danger of falling in! Across the river is the old iron works and worth a stroll around in the evening. 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.
