This delightful farmhouse is perfect for groups to enjoy a taste of Welsh countryside living. Sitting 20 miles north of Brecon, adventure the day away then kick off muddy boots in the utility room where you can also hang coats and jackets. The kitchen/diner is a large space which is naturally bright and a wonderful space in which to communally cook up a storm. Serve up at the table where plenty of room means all guests can dine comfortably. Exposed beams line the ceiling of the lounge, sit down and relax in front of the warming wood burner or head into the snug and choose a book or a board game to keep you entertained. Four bedrooms are located on the first floor. Climb the stairs and watch out for sloping ceilings as you get ready to settle down to sleep. All rooms have twin beds, three of which can be made up as doubles and of which are treated to en-suite bathrooms. The family shower room resides on the first floor, too.

Head outside to make the most of warm days and relax in the unfenced garden. Sit with a glass of something cold on the terrace and wait for the BBQ to fire up or lounge on the lawn.

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.
