Property code: MAWRN

Situated on the owners’ 400 acre farm, this attractive cottage nestles on the edge of the Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons National Park and has stunning views down the valley to Crickhowell.

Prepare to relax and unwind in the beautiful Brecon Beacons, choosing this charming property that’s set on a working farm. Sleeping eight guests and two dogs, you’ll be within 11 miles of Llangorse Lake, a hotspot for water sports. Get back to nature exploring the wilderness, or enjoy a gastronomic experience in pretty market towns such as Crickhowell 6 miles away, renowned for fine cheese, locally reared meat, and a home-grown speciality, cider.

Light-filled and spacious, the property is an elegant mix of tradition with a healthy dose of contemporary convenience. Kick-off your boots at the door and escape the blustery weather in the lounge; the lack of signal is a superb chance to reconnect with your loved ones over family films and popcorn. Cook up a storm in the kitchen, utilising everything you need to prepare hearty meals and feast together by the dining room wood burner. There’s a downstairs shower room for taking care of any muddy mishaps, and there are four bedrooms upstairs comfortably styled for a restful night’s sleep. Completing the property is a first-floor bathroom with a shower-over-the-bath. On balmy summer evenings, the patio is a tranquil location for drinks in the sunshine with a BBQ.

A short drive will bring you to an array of market towns brimming with historic architecture, independent shops and numerous eateries. Abergavenny 11.5 miles away has a range of cuisines on offer, and the annual food festival is excellent if you time your visit to coincide with the event. For those who simply wish to wander at leisure, you’ll be spoilt for choice of where to explore first. Follow a footpath from your doorstep, or venture to Crickhowell 6 miles away to join the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, a route that is famed for its mesmerising beauty.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

It's a great location. The directions to the property could be clearer and a 'pin-drop' to google maps would help. There's little signal so you can't call if you get lost. The cleanliness of the kitchen and kitchen wear was non-existent. The bedding was fresh and clean though. There is a leak under the sink which had been noted in the visitor book Read morea year ago, but hasn't been resolved. Great views, big house. Great base for exploring. Be prepared to spend a good hour cleaning the kitchen first. Hide

A lovely warm and well equipped traditional farm cottage set in beautiful scenery ideal for a large family or families. Great location for a get away and place to relax which has stunning walks and great pub close by but easy to visit other parts of the Breacons.

Lovely big cottage perfect for 4 adults, 3 teenagers and a dog. It is in the middle of nowhere so very peaceful. The teenagers got over the disgust that there was no phone signal in the cottage lol!! Us adults loved that we could get no 4g or phone signal with our Virgin phones. Great that it had 2 showers, 2 toilets, washing machine and dishwasherRead more in there too. The local pub is a 25 minute walk away. Crickhowell is about a 10 min drive away and has some lovely traditional shops and restaurants. Hide

For peace and quiet this is a great location. Amazing view of the mountains with no road noise. Great for relaxing. Unfortunately the cottage could have done with a good spring clean. The cottage was spacious and fitted myself , children and my parents easily. The garden space was lovely with plenty of seating. Unfortunately the DVD players did notRead more work at all and the dishwasher was missing the runners on one side. The WiFi was a bit pricey and didnt last 24hours ( purchased 10GB for 10 ) Hide

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
