 Set within the grounds of a country house, this sizeable 18th-century barn conversion is the perfect choice for a multi-family holiday or friends’ get together.


Located close to the village of Llandefaelog Fach, this peaceful property provides rural walks right from the door. For a gentler workout, Cradoc Golf Club lies less than 1 mile away, or you can head for Brecon, a little over 2 miles south. With local shops, eateries, a leisure centre, and more, the market town is also your gateway to Brecon Beacons National Park, where you can up the ante with mile-upon-mile of hiking trails, mountain biking and pony trekking through the striking South Wales landscape.

The heart of this property is a beamed kitchen/diner, where you and your guests can gather around the large dining table to plan your days and enjoy a meal cooked up on the AGA-style oven . After dinner you might choose to wind down in the study/library, where you will find a fabulous collection of books and a writing desk, plus some comfy chairs and a TV. Alternatively, head up the steep stairs to the first floor to relax in the spacious sitting room, which boasts some fine pieces of period furniture and wood burners at either side of the room to ensure a cosy night in. As with the living accommodation, the bedrooms are split across two floors, providing a sense of separation and privacy for multi-family occupancy: on the ground floor you will find a king-size room and twin room, with a second twin room and a double room located on the first floor. Each floor benefits from its own bath/shower room and WC, while the ground floor also has a useful utility room, with a large fridge/freezer and washing machine.

From the king-sized bedroom on the ground floor, patio doors lead out to the property’s private garden area. Here, four-legged friends can run off any unspent energy, while you enjoy a BBQ or simply relax at the end of the day, relishing in the peace and quiet.


Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Great cottage, lots of space inside the cottage and fantastic to have a large garden to relax in watching the sunset after a busy day exploring the Brecon Beacons. Very friendly, helpful owner and delicious raspberries from the garden! Thank you.

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.
