Steeped in history this cottage was built in the 19th century and maintains its rustic charm with many original features including exposed beams. Escape to the mountains from footpaths that twist and turn close to your door.

An easy trip to the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre can be made on foot as it lies less than a mile from home. Visit the tea rooms here for a pre-adventure energy stop or treat yourselves to something tasty after you have spent the day exploring. Fun for all the family can be had 15 miles away at the Llangorse Multi Activity Centre; try your hand at caving, abseiling or rock climbing amongst a whole host of other exciting activities.

Leave muddy boots in the entrance porch and head inside for the evening. Fire up the wood burner in the spacious lounge where plenty of sofa space means everyone can unwind with ease. The space is light due the cottage windows and is dotted with homely comforts such as pictures and plants. Head through to the kitchen/diner where plenty of worktop space means mealtimes are easy and you can designate more than one chef for the night. Cook up a storm on the gas oven before plating up at the table and enjoying a feast together. After dinner climb the stairs from the kitchen to reach the bedrooms on the first floor, both of which are delightful rooms. The bright family room and snug yet light twin room sit by the family bathroom. Enjoy a soak in the tub before bed or rise and shine and freshen up in the shower over the bath.

Make the most of sunny days and evenings and dine alfresco in the garden. An enclosed paddock provides a safe space for dogs and children to run around to their hearts content.

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

Could have done with a freestanding towel rail in the bedrooms as nowhere to hand damp towels. A charming cottage which I think would benefit from a few antique touches in keeping with the property. That said I?d book it again.

Lovely homely cottage

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.
