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.

Settle in right away at this welcoming, eco-friendly home, perfect to enjoy with family and friends on your escape to the Welsh countryside. Stay warm by the wood burner or bask in the sun in the large garden where children can play on the swing at the bottom of the garden. Bright and light spaces make this home a real delight to relax in and it offers a welcome retreat as you return home from adventures each day.

Largely open-plan, inside you can keep an eye on little ones as you put your feet up in the inviting lounge where local artwork adorns the walls and board games are waiting to be played. The central wood burner promises to keep you warm and is a characterful feature which beautifully breaks up the space so you can grab a moment of peace whilst other guests enjoy a lively game of table football. The spacious kitchen/diner follows the curved wall and has ample work and storage space so you can whip up delicious feasts with ease. Dine at the table and enjoy a sociable meal with fantastic views across the garden or head out to the terrace for an al fresco evening as the sun sets. Four bedrooms are found on the first floor and are all calming spaces which invite you to rest your head and drift off. Two of the rooms have their own en-suite wet rooms, and the family bathroom is a lovely place to enjoy a soak.

Enjoy a stroll around the garden, taking care around the unfenced pond, before hopping in the car and exploring further afield. A 21-mile trip will take you to the National Botanic Garden of Wales, or a shorter 12-mile journey takes you to Crychan Forest where a host of mountain bike and walking trails are waiting to be explored.

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.
