Set deep in the rich countryside and offering a rugged landscape within the Brecon Beacons National Park this detached farmhouse with spacious accommodation is just perfect for family and friends.

Set deep in the countryside just a short distance from the peaceful hamlet of Merthyr Cynog in Powys, where there’s an ancient Norman church with connections to St Cynog dating back to 500 AD. This area is a haven for enthusiastic walkers so leave the car behind and follow the many waymarked footpaths. You are well placed to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park and try your hand at one of the various water sports available such as kayaking on the River Wye, paddleboarding on Llangorse Lake (18 miles) or pony trekking within the foothills. The traditional market towns of Brecon (12 miles) and Builth Wells (10 miles) are also within easy reach, with Builth Wells being home to the Royal Welsh Show and many other seasonal events. Set within its own grounds and approached from a small lane, this stone farmhouse is in a great rural location for catching up with friends and family away from the stresses of everyday life.

Step inside the generously sized entrance hall where there is space for coats and boots. From here you can access the main lounge where you can relax in front of the oil-fired stove set within the inglenook fireplace after a day of exploring. From the lounge, you have access to the kitchen which is well equipped with oil fired Rayburn, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. There is access to a dining room where you can enjoy entertaining around the table which accommodates eight. There is also access to a utility room that offers a further fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and a ground floor WC. There is also a sun lounge/games room with a pool table where you can relax and enjoy the views. So, when the day is done, climb the stairs to the first floor where a mezzanine landing awaits and you can sit and enjoy a chapter of a good book. There are three bedrooms all accessed from this landing: a double bedroom with en-suite shower and WC, a further double room, and one twin room. There is a bathroom with a handheld shower over the bath and WC. From a separate staircase accessed through the sun lounge there is a king-size bedroom with an en-suite double walk-in shower and WC.

Fantastic place, loved the quiet location with no overlooking properties. Beautiful house, very well equipped, incredible night sky, would suit stargazers too! This is the real deal getaway from it all yet only approx 20mins from Brecon.

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.
