Savour local treats from the welcoming hamper as you find a cosy corner to settle down in. This dwelling sits in ‘The Garden of Wales’ and has been designated by UNESCO as part of the Fforest Fawr Geopark where adventure awaits.

Head to this beautiful Welsh village and marvel at the abundance of exploring there is to do. 21 miles from your door is the National Botanic Garden of Wales or stay closer to home and make the 11-mile journey to the Dinas RSPB Nature Reserve or the 12-mile journey to Crychan Forest where a host of mountain bike and walking trails are waiting to be explored. Enjoy spending time out and about and look forward to returning home to the comforts of the lodge.

Enter this glorious dwelling and admire all of the quirk and character it has to offer. Largely open-plan the downstairs floor is great for spending time together as a family as the wood burner throws heat into the space. The lobby is a great spot for muddy boots and outdoor coats to reside throughout your stay. Local works of art adorn the walls in the sitting room where comfortable sofas invite you to unwind and switch on the TV. For livelier evenings challenge fellow guests to a game of table football or choose from a whole host of exciting board games. The beautifully spacious kitchen/diner has ample work and storage space so you can rustle up delicious feasts with ease and dine in style at the table where views of the garden can be admired. There is a downstairs toilet for convenience but head up the first floor to find the family bathroom. Four bedrooms invite eight guests to rest their heads and find some peace and quiet. The king-size with en-suite wet room, double with en-suite wet room, double and a bunk room are all decorated simply with calming tones so you can wake up feeling fresh and ready for the day ahead.

Head out onto the large lawn and bask in the sunshine before sitting on the terrace with a glass of something cold. The herbaceous borders line the garden and are full of native plants and herbs. The wildlife pond is a great feature but please take care as it is unfenced. Keep your bikes safe in the lockable shed and make the most of the parking for three cars.

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.
