Property code: 48309

This property is set in the heart of the Black Mountains, a delightful detached family retreat, with fabulous games room.Settle in, pop a log on the fire and snuggle up, you’ll not want to leave.

Boasting views of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, escape the everyday at this brilliant cottage which sleeps six and one dog. Tucked away in a secluded position in the Brecon Beacons National Park, enjoy the peace and tranquillity whilst knowing that the bustling towns of Crickhowell and Abergavenny are just 5 miles away. Spend your days summiting the Black Mountains, hiking the Offa’s Dyke Path or treating your tastebuds before relaxing in style by the wood burner.

Bursting with natural light, fresh tones and an inviting ambience, step inside and take a seat on the bright sofa to settle in front of the TV/DVD. Perfect for quiet nights in, the open-plan space means it’s easy to be social – you can alternate between the kitchen and sofa with ease. Enjoy communal meals at the table or tuck into al fresco BBQ feasts during the summer months. Spend time in the games room which has a pool table, dartboard, Pinball machine, TV and games console before resting your head in one of three bedrooms located on the first floor. One of two spacious king-size bedrooms has a pull-out bed suitable for two children and there is a double room with additional single bed decorated in bright tones; just take care of sloping ceilings on this floor. Soak in the bath or freshen up in the shower when you wake. There is off-road parking for three cars.

A 25.5-mile trip will take you to the highest peak in South Wales, Pen-y-Fan, whilst a 14.5-mile journey brings you to the largest natural lake in Wales, Llangorse. Between them, both destinations are great for the adventurous with summits, kayak hire and zip lining. Treat the foodies among you to a meal out in Abergavenny which is 5 miles away. Visit during the day and climb one of the surrounding mountains: Skirrid, Blorenge or the Sugar Loaf.

Map
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.
