We absolutely loved Millbrook a cross between a medieval manor and French Manoir and we feel privileged to be allowed to share your home and lovely garden. The house is rustic by nature and has been restored with sensitivity to retain its character. We found it comfortable and warm with good facilities. The surroundings are beautiful and traveling Read morea pleasure on the Welsh main roads and country lanes. Hide

This place has character in spades. A genuine medieval cottage - but with wifi. Beds were comfortable and the bath is lovely after a day in the hills. There are great walks on the doorstep -including smaller ones for smaller legs. The kids loved the garden and the games in garden store. Pub is a short walk away (apparently Skirrid Inn is oldest in Read moreWales). Hide

A lovely, atmospheric house in a convenient location. One has to accept some idiosyncrasies in such an ancient property but perhaps slightly bigger beds might help after a day exploring this beautiful area. Something of a privilege to stay here but perhaps a few more home comforts as well as the quirky furniture and lights would be appreciated?

The cottage has a fabulous location to the Skirrid, Black Mountains and Sugarloaf mountain as well as Abergavenny being so close for shops. The cottage is full of charm and character. We thoroughly enjoyed the change of pace and being able to relax in the drawing room by the fire in the evenings, outside in the sun during the day and in the kitchenRead more while cooking on the AGA.

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.
