Property code: BN208

A detached contemporary former farmhouse set in an idyllic 80-acre estate, for impressive landscape views and a range of trails into the forests from your doorstep.

This part of northern Carmarthenshire is famed for its cycling routes both on and off-road, including the Cwm Rhaeadr, Gap Mountain Bike and Elan Valley Trails to name but a few. The farmhouse is one of a cluster of cottages on a farm 5 miles from Llandovery, which are great for a gathering of up to 29 guests, and around which North Country Cheviot sheep graze, kept for breeding and meat production. Outdoor activities from this tranquil base include a walk 3 miles up the valley to Cynnant hill. Walk through the forests with your canine pals, or enjoy bird watching (the owner is a keen ornithologist). Maps are provided for you to explore.

Inside, the property is a bright and spacious open-plan living/dining area, furnished with comfortable sofas to sink into while you unwind in front of the TV. A long dining table is perfect for catching up with all the family over a meal. A large country-style kitchen welcomes you with a large breakfast island, suitable for the whole party to plan the day’s adventures over morning coffee. A super convenient ground floor twin bedroom is spacious, with a handy en-suite shower room and WC. Upstairs are three more generously sized bedrooms, some with sloping ceilings: a charming twin room has beautiful views out to the nearby grazing fields, and an en-suite shower room with WC; two more king-size bedrooms each come with an en-suite shower room, and one even has a walk-in wardrobe for an extra touch of comfort and style.

Housed on location is a large hot tub, seating up to nine people and perfect for sipping bubbly as the sun sets. The farmhouse has a charming separate walled front patio, perfect for sitting out in the mornings, while the gravelled outer yard provides ample off-road parking.

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.
