This former game keeper’s cottage is brimming with lavish home comforts such as roaring fires and elegant interiors, providing an enchanting base for special staycations.

Full of character and home comforts, this historic cottage provides an enchanting base for exploring the Wye Valley with family and four-legged friends. Trek through ancient woodland and stunning valleys or take to the water as you visit beautiful Llangorse Lake, the largest natural lake in South Wales (11 miles). Afterwards, return home to dine alfresco in the garden, relax beside the roaring wood burner or indulge in a long hot soak in the roll-top bath.

Inside, this former gamekeeper’s cottage is brimming with charm throughout. The lounge/diner is cosy and welcoming with its inglenook fireplace, Welsh dresser and exposed stone wall – the perfect place to warm up after long chilly walks. The kitchen, meanwhile, is light and bright with modern units and views over the garden. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms – two double rooms and a single room – as well as a luxurious bathroom complete with a roll-top bath. Stepping outside, the pretty terraced garden with a large lawn area offers a safe haven for dogs and children to play and explore, while grown-ups enjoy a cup of coffee on the patio.

Studded within the Wye Valley, this picturesque property enjoys a peaceful position within easy reach of the popular towns of Brecon (12 miles), Hay-on-Wye (10 miles) and Builth Wells (9 miles) – each of which boasts a quaint selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. A haven for walkers, the ancient woodland at Llangoed Common is just 1.5 miles away, while the wonderful Brecon Beacons National Park begins just 6 miles to the south. Continuing south, Llangorse Lake is a popular destination for walking, fishing, boating, picnicking and even waterskiing.

Beautiful cottage, very well equipped. We enjoyed the walks in Brecon, food at the Griffin Inn and the Thursday market in Hay on Wye. Our daughter really liked Cantref adventure farm. The road is noisy as mentioned in other reviews but didn't affect our holiday.

Amazing cottage in lovely surroundings. We had small kids and they enjoyed playing in the garden. All mod cons while still having that lovely cottage feel. Would definitely return again in the future

Cottage is beautiful inside. Owners really have thought of everything. Garden really is a doggie paradise. Lovely welcome basket when we arrived. For ourselves its just too near the road. The noise from the traffic is a nuisance.

Jasmine Cottage was absolutely beautiful. It is ideally placed for travel to Hay on Wye, Brecon and Abergavenny. The garden was a delightful sun trap. The kitchen is very well equipped and there were games and books available although we didn't get the opportunity to utilise them as the weather was so good. Beds were very comfortable and the bathroRead moreom was beautiful and had a great shower. An added bonus was the alpaca spotting in the neighbouring field. Simply delightful. Hide

The cottage is lovely, garden superb. The only downside was it is so close to the busy main road but with the help of triple glazing we got used to the noise.

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.
