The cottage is well equipped and comfortable but the Welsh covid restrictions do make any stay more awkward because even cooker instructions are not allowed. The hot tub is great but check that you can live with the opening hours and the sharing aspects of the tub. There is an issue with cluster flies which, although harmless, did cause some of ourRead more party to become compulsive swatters. None of the above would stop us staying again and the scenery around the cottage is stunning. Hide

We had a lovely time at Ketrel cottage, six adults and two children. The cottage was clean, the hot tub was available but was a bit too hot for the children. We were disappointed in the such late check in and early check out which cut our long weekend at the cottage short.

The most wonderful cottage, spotlessly clean, well equipped and set in the most jaw dropping country side. Our host Mrs Lloyd was delightful. We have the most amazing holiday memories, would throughly recommend Kestral cottage.

See above. We did wonder if normally (in non COVID times) there are a few books or other literature on shelves for reading (eg on the local area and attractions). That said, we did not really need them ourselves.

Wonderful stay. Owners especially Lucy were very friendly, who welcomed us to this beautiful working sheep farm and were very helpful in quickly addressing any needs we had. Kestrel Farmhouse is large, spacious, clean, fresh, warm and fully equipped with everything required to keep us more than happy. Having an en suite with every bedroom is great Read morefor our busy family of 2 adults and 4 children. The weather was great, the scenery beautiful, the environment relaxing, we couldn't ask for more. Hide

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.
