Sleeping up to 22 guests, this spacious farmhouse in the heart of Brecon Beacons National Park is ideal for a multi-family vacation, or a group of friends looking to spend time together

Nestled away in the upper reaches of the Swansea Valley, this charming period property beckons for family adventures in the Welsh countryside. Sleeping up to 22 people and four dogs, it lends itself perfectly to special occasions and group gatherings, uniting family and friends under one roof. With lots of amenities and things to do throughout the Brecon Beacons National Park, you’re sure to find something for everyone.

As soon as you arrive, soak in the property’s wonderful views over the wooded river valley and surrounding hills. Inside, authentic period pieces like oak beams and exposed walls sympathetically aligned with modern furnishings and homely touches create a welcoming atmosphere. A social hub, the large kitchen with its array of appliances and kitchen island is ideal for cooking family meals, while the spacious dining room seats the whole party for mealtimes together. A place to relax and socialise, the beamed lounge features a large inglenook fireplace and wood burner, especially atmospheric in winter. Elsewhere, a converted barn houses a second lounge/diner, an additional kitchen and a conservatory for somewhere quiet to wind down or keep the kids occupied. Completing the ensemble are nine bedrooms and four bathrooms.

Outside there is a garden with its own BBQ and outdoor seating, as well as a wild play area with trampoline, rope swings and Wendy house. For rainy days, the games barn is the place to be, while many great walking and biking trails can be picked up directly from the doorstep too. The highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons, Pen y Fan, is only 13 miles away. For local shops and eateries, visit Defynnog (3 miles), Sennybridge (4 miles) and Brecon market town (12.5 miles).

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.
