Quintessential and charming, the village of Llangynidr is the ideal destination for those with a love of the outdoors and good food, not to mention a keen interest in local history. Set within the grounds of the owner’s property, this restored stable is within 11 miles of Crickhowell and Abergavenny, two excellent destinations for stocking up on local delights, accessing scenic trails and admiring historic landmarks such as castle ruins and medieval remnants. Comfy yet practical, the property sleeps four guests across two bedrooms and there’s even a welcome pack of goodies to kick-start your stay.

Single-level and cosy, your holiday accommodation features an open-plan living space for relaxing and dining at leisure, whether you are tucking into delicious meals at the table or watching TV from the comfort of the sofas. Mealtimes are a breeze thanks to the country cottage-style kitchen, and there’s a handy outside utility room shared with the owner’s cottage. Escape for some pampering in the shower room with its double-sized shower compartment, and retire to your sleeping quarters for a restful night’s sleep. You’ll have two bedrooms to choose from; one king-size which can be made into a twin on request, and one double with French doors leading outside. Fire up the BBQ on the patio, or wander into the village for supper at one of two local pubs.

Don your walking attire and discover the iconic scenery of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, a spectacular waterway interspersed with pretty lochs and resident wildlife. The River Usk is popular for catching salmon and brown trout and keen golfers will be able to play a round of golf at one of three courses within 12 miles.

Friendly and helpful owners. No drawbacks to the cottage: exactly what we wanted. We would visit again.

The owners are lovely and so helpful. The cottage itself was beautiful and the area surround is peaceful so you can get some tlc while exploring everything South Wales has to offer. I would go back in a heartbeat.

We had a lovely week staying at Hen Stabl. It is a beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. It has been thoughtfully well appointed by the friendly owners who made us feel really welcome. We'd definitely like to come back again!

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.
