Located in a picturesque village in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, this adorable holiday cottage makes a wonderful retreat for a family or a couple looking for a secluded base to explore the region.

This lovely cottage is ideal for discovering the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Talybont-on-Usk has some friendly pubs and restaurants and makes a good starting point for walks including the Brecon and Monmouth Canal and the Brinore Tramroad, which begins opposite the cottage, or you can easily join the Taff Trail which leads down to Cardiff. The picturesque Talybont Reservoir is nearby (2 miles), as are the waterfalls of Blaen Y Glyn (7 miles), the Cantref Adventure Farm (5 miles) and Llangorse Lake (7 miles). The bustling market towns of Brecon (7 miles) and Crickhowell (8 miles) are within easy reach and have a welcoming and friendly range of pubs, shops, cafes and restaurants.

This cheerful, warm and bright holiday cottage features a spacious and welcoming lounge/diner which is an ideal space to unwind in at the end of a fabulous day. With a warming wood burner, TV, DVD and plenty of seating, you can snuggle up in the lounge late into the night with a good movie. The dining area is perfect for sharing a favourite family meal. A couple of steps lead down from the lounge/diner into the beautiful handmade wooden kitchen which is equipped with a double oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and washing machine. The ground floor also features a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC. An original, steep, cottage-style staircase curves behind the fireplace and chimney and leads up to the first floor where there are two light and cosy bedrooms, both tastefully decorated and attractively furnished. The first room is a pretty double bedroom, and the second, which is accessed via a couple of steps down, is a charming twin bedroom. This room has exposed beams and a very low sloping ceiling so is probably unsuitable for taller guests. This floor also features a stylish bathroom with a free-standing roll-top bath with hand-held shower and a WC.

Back downstairs, doors lead out to the lovely sheltered and secluded riverside garden which features a summerhouse, BBQ and outdoor furniture so you can sit back and watch the birds and the River Caerfanell in the morning. Please note the river runs past the garden so dogs and young children should be supervised. Bike storage is also available, and there’s roadside car parking.

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

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.
