Property code: BN212

Low environmental impact woodland cottage in a magical setting by the river; both contemporary and traditional, this is a perfect base for bushcraft, birdwatching and exploring the charming villages nearby.

Tucked amongst woodland, this charming lodge sits on stilts so you can admire the views and treetops. Great for families and friends who share a love of the great outdoors, this humble abode sleeps six and also welcomes two of your four-legged companions. Less than a mile from your door is the bustling town of Hay-on-Wye where you can pick up local produce to fill your cupboards.

 

Step inside this wooden-clad, cabin-style home and find yourself in the open-plan living space. Perfectly arranged behind floor-to-ceiling windows are two sofas, perfect for putting your feet up on after time spent exploring. Underfloor heating flows throughout the lodge, promising to keep your feet warm as you cook up a storm in the spacious kitchen. Filled with natural light, and with doors leading out to the veranda, the kitchen is a lovely space to spend time in and has a large table so you can enjoy sociable evening meals. For al fresco feasts, fire up the BBQ and dine outside before heading inside to rest your head. Three bedrooms, one with sloping ceilings, are light, tranquil rooms so you can drift off with ease before waking and freshening up in the family shower room.

 

Stay close to home and wander the pretty streets of Hay-on-Wye with its plethora of bookshops, eateries and castle. For a day on the water, hire canoes in nearby Glasbury (5 miles), and paddle down to The Warren, a shingle beach on the riverbank, where you can stop for a tasty picnic and a breather. 6 miles from home, climb Hay Bluff which sits at the northern tip of the Black Mountains, or travel 25 miles to summit Pen-y-Fan, the highest peak in South Wales.

Wonderful, comfortable accommodation with incredible woodland views and an amazing location. The living area of the cabin was much more spacious than it looks in the photos, it was all very clean with good facilities. The farm itself is just lovely, as are the family who run it. We had such a great holiday and can't wait to come back.

We had a great time at Larchwood Bothy. Very peaceful, lovely walks. Nice walk into Hay Village. The cottage is in the perfect location for various activities or like us if you just want a quiet spot to switch off and walk the dogs.

This was a great space to spend some wet and windy days in. It must be really wonderful in the summer to sit out on the generous terrace, with the view of the river and woods.

Great stay at The Bothy. The views are great and the Bothy itself is fantastic. Ros was there to meet us as we arrived when dark. There is everything you need there and immaculate in presentation and cleanliness. Very easy to walk into Hay on Wye and there are plenty of easily accessible walks as well. The underfloor heating kept warmth throughout Read morethe Bothy. Would highly recommend. Hide

An idyllic peaceful location, simple but perfect accommodation with comfortable beds and a thoughtful, helpful host (thank you again, Ros). What more do you need? The Bothy was very spacious, Wifi reliable and Netflix available which meant the teenagers accompanying me were untroubled by wet weather spells. Short walks to town (which is lovely) andRead more down to the river through the woods. Everyone- including the dog - had a great time. Hide

Location

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.
