With its nearest neighbours almost 1 mile away, this peaceful cottage provides larger or extended families with the perfect secluded getaway in the Brecon Beacons.

Nestled amidst the trees, this charming 17th-century Welsh longhouse is perfect for explorers of all ages, as well as those with four legs. Boasting panoramic views across the majestic Black Mountains, this bolthole sits to the west of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Adventure the days away before returning home to light the wood burner and curl up beneath old oak beams.

Make your way through the entrance hallway – perfect for leaving muddy boots and coats – and into the farmhouse-style kitchen. Rustle up delicious treats which can be plated up at the breakfast table or in the sociable dining room where a flagstone floor, traditional ornamental fireplace and beautiful cabinets exude warmth and character. For a moment of peace and quiet, step down from the kitchen to find yourself in the handy utility room which houses a comfortable pair of armchairs sitting in front of the original bread oven and kitchen range. Spend lazy evenings in the lounge cosied up in front of the roaring wood burner or step out of the French doors and bask in the sunshine on the patio where you can fire up the BBQ for an easy feast. When it’s time to rest your heads, make your way to the first floor where three bedrooms with quirky sloping ceilings await. Freshen up in the walk-in shower or enjoy a soak in the tub to start your day.

Head straight from your door and tread well-trodden tracks, being sure to keep your eyes peeled for red kites which are known to reside nearby. A 30-mile trip will take you to the highest peak in South Wales, Pen-y-Fan, or stay closer to home and visit the nearby town of Llandeilo where you can visit the Heart of Wales railway line. Travel 4 miles to Carreg Cennen Castle which is steeped in history and boasts breathtaking views.

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.
