Property code: MAWRW

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.

Escape to the Brecon Beacons National Park to experience a new world of breathtaking scenery, leisurely walks, and a whole host of local cuisines and homegrown produce. This charming property is set on a working farm and sleeps four guests and two dogs, offering a peaceful base for families and small groups keen to explore the unique wilderness. Venture to the gently lapping shoreline of Llangorse Lake 11.5 miles away and perhaps charter a boat for a unique point of view, or prepare to dine in style with a visit to Crickhowell 6 miles away. Wherever your daily adventures take you, your welcoming retreat has everything you need to unwind after a busy day.

Oak beams, exposed stone and wood/tiled floors set the scene from the moment you step inside to discover the open-plan dining space, which features contemporary decor and a feature spiral staircase. The cosy lounge is ideal for film nights, and the kitchen has everything you need to whip up some treats. Upstairs, the two bedrooms are stylish and comfortable, and there is a generous bathroom with a shower-over-the-bath for long soaks. Outside, the enclosed garden provides beautiful views from its elevated position, complete with garden furniture and a BBQ.

Llangorse Lake is a renowned hotspot for those who love the thrill of sailing, kayaking or even paddleboarding, yet it is equally as popular for gentle amblers looking to soak up the scenery. The Georgian architecture and bustling streets of Brecon 15 miles away are a must for retail therapy and sampling local delights. The iconic Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal offers walking and cycling along the towpaths, whether you join it at its source in Brecon or further along the route at Crickhowell.

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

We have stayed at Mawr Well three times and absolutely love it. The cottage is comfortable and clean and the views from the garden are beautiful. The lanes up to the property are narrow but very quiet so dont let that put you off. Some amazing walks nearby.

The location was brilliant for walking and the cottage itself was ideal for us, as walkers with a dog. The dining room was perfect for being able to come back after a walk and take off boots and bags and not worry about being too messy. Everything about the cottage layout was perfect for us. Can't fault it and would definitely book again. Thank youRead more for the cakes too!!! 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.
