We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this well equipped and cosy cottage. It was wonderful to sit in the garden in the evening with the sites and sounds of the river at the bottom of the garden.

Beautiful cottage, spacious, well decorated and very comfortable overall (unfortunately we found the beds and mattresses too soft). The kitchen is extremely well equipped for its size and the garden is delightful and very safe for dogs. The location is perfect for local amenities, walks and sightseeing.

All I can say is the pictures do not do the cottage justice. The cottage was beautiful, tranquil, clean and had everything I needed to enjoy a lovely holiday. You could spend you days in the cottage and enjoy it every bit. But for those that like to venture out, this cottage has everything on its door step, from lovely walks with the dog, sea side,Read more waterfalls, horse riding, quad biking and for those that love hiking...heaven. The locals are really friendly and I would definitely return. Hide

Lovely dog friendly cottage and garden. Well equipped and cosy. Great location for exploring South Wales. Only niggle was the parking, which, as others have said was a bit hit and miss as to how close to the cottage you could get parked. All in all highly recommended.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful area. Had everything you needed especially in these current times when there wasn't much open, so cooked more than on usual stays. Garden was lovely and dog appreciated the freedom of outdoor space. Only downside was the parking but we usually got in somewhere up the road. A good base for walking and beach days.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
