History and tales of years gone by fill this wonderful village. The Big Pit, Heritage Railway and many more wonderful spots will keep you entertained before you return to settle down in style each evening.

A holiday in Blaenavon puts you right at the heart of Wales’ industrial landscape. The village is a World Heritage Site thanks to its well-preserved collection of ironworks and mines, and is a fascinating place to visit. The countryside around Blaenavon provides you with a wealth of walks, cycle trails and scenic views, especially in the Brecon Beacons. This welcoming cottage is well-suited to small families looking for days out with a difference.

Inside, the open-plan living space offers a comfortable place to relax after exciting adventures. Put your feet up and unwind in front of the TV and stay warm on chilly nights by turning on the wood burner-effect electric fire. At mealtimes, get creative in the kitchen or stroll down to a pub or restaurant in the village, less than a mile from the property. Alternatively, you can take your grub outside and savour it on the property’s patio. The views of Coity Mountain will make it an occasion to remember. When it’s time for bed, climb the stairs to the bedrooms; there’s one double room and two singles. With all that fresh Welsh air in your lungs, you’re likely to fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow.

With loads of attractions on your doorstep, you’ll never be short of things to do here. Go down a coal mine at the Big Pit (1 mile), where former miners will lead you on a fascinating underground tour, and discover 18th-century blast furnaces at Blaenavon Ironworks, just half a mile from the property. Hop on the Blaenavon Heritage Railway to Pontypool or jump in the car and drive to the popular market town of Abergavenny (7 miles) on the scenic mountain road.

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.
