Overall the location could not have been better, and the hot tub was outstanding. So many different birds came to feed on the bread we put out. It's only the second time we have ever seen a Nuthatch, and we did see a Kingfisher briefly. Brilliant.

Enjoyable stay at Lily Pond Lodge. Despite some truly awful weather during our stay, including Storm Ellen (!) we had a lovely week there, enjoying walks from the door. We enjoyed the company of the 'neighbours', Rosie, Daisy and Lily and are told they enjoy digestive biscuits! The draw is the peaceful setting, the covered veranda on which we couldRead more sit and eat outside and the private hot tub. All in all, a very refreshing week. Hide

From the moment we arrived the Lodge felt like home. We had a lovely welcome pack, which we enjoyed very much! The Lodge was very clean and Debbie and David had left clear instructions for us on how to leave the lodge in regards to COVID. Debbie came everyday to check the hot tub however you would never of known, when we did see her she greeted us Read morewarmly and was very friendly. Overall Lily Pond Lodge was the perfect place for our honeymoon. The location is stunning, it?s quiet but there is plenty to do nearby should you want to venture out. Personally we were happy to stay in our little bubble! Thank you Debbie and David for a wonderful stay, we really didn?t want to leave! Hide

Super clean accommodation . The lodge is well stocked with absolutely everything you need and beautifully private and peaceful. The views were fabulous and there were lots of lovely walks on the doorstep. One of the best places I have ever stayed in. Thank you!

Reviewed by Mr Smith February 2020

The place was incredible! Small but very cosy and even a welcome basket when we got there! The hot tub was really good and Debbie came to check it every day. It was also so perfect for the dog as he had the whole field to run around. We will definitely be returning and hopefully when there isn?t a storm this time.

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.
