Sitting in a spectacular, secluded spot, this fantastic farmhouse and beautiful barn provides larger groups with a wonderful base from which to explore the borderlands of England and Wales.

Explore the borderlands of Wales and England from this 18th-century farmhouse and converted barn annexe, sleeping up to 10 guests, near Hay-on-Wye. Take two dogs with you if you wish and follow one of the many footpaths in your surroundings. Return home to immerse yourselves in panoramic views across the Wye Valley and the warmth of a roaring wood burner.

Enter the charming stone property to discover accommodation that is brimming with character. Make your way into the traditional farmhouse kitchen, complete with electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, as well as a wood burner. Take two steps down into the lounge to find a second wood burner and comfortable seating, where you can relax and watch TV. Find a bathroom, with bath and shower, also on the ground floor. Head up the main stairs to discover three bedrooms: a king-size room, a bunk room, and a room with small twin beds that can be pushed together to make a double. Find a second twin room located at the top of very steep ladder stairs at the other end of the property. The barn annexe, with its own lounge/kitchen/diner and shower room, could be perfect for two guests seeking privacy. Climb very steep ladder stairs here to find a gallery bedroom with double bed. Spill out into the generous garden on sunny days and perhaps light the BBQ. Find plenty of parking at the property but access via the shared track is steep and some drivers might prefer to park in the lower off-road parking area and walk up.

Venture approximately 4 miles into Hay to potter about in its famous bookshops, browse in its independent outlets or dine out in a restaurant. Find fabulous places to walk, including Offa’s Dyke Path, which you can pick up in Hay.

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

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.
