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.

Boasting the best of both worlds in the beautiful Welsh countryside, this holiday cottage puts local amenities at your fingertips as well as endless walking, hiking and cycling routes accessible close to home. Enjoy the calm atmosphere and welcoming local pubs in the village of Talybont-on-Usk before heading out to explore the surrounding Brecon Beacons. On an evening, make yourselves at home in this contemporary property which comfortably sleeps four guests.

Pairing contemporary décor and original features, this stylish property will feel like an instant home from home from the moment you arrive. Head inside to discover a cosy lounge with functional wood burner, cushy sofas and a TV, perfect for curling up on a cold winter’s evening. Here you’ll also find a modern mid-century dining table with space for four to dine, ideal when cooking dinners in the well-equipped farmhouse-style kitchen. Unique cottage stairs curl around the fireplace to take you to the first floor, where two cosy bedrooms invite you to spend the night. The first is a generous double equipped with antique furniture, whilst the second is a twin bedroom with sloped ceilings and original beams, the perfect sleeping spot for two younger visitors. Completing the property is a private riverside garden, a great place for summer BBQs and evening drinks.

Wander into the village to find plenty of pubs, shops and eateries, or step out a little further to discover the towns of Brecon (6.5 miles) or Crickhowell (8 miles). Those hoping to summit some of Wales’ most impressive peaks will find themselves in luck, with Pen y Fan just 10 miles and the Waun Fach peak just 16 miles, along with the much easier going Table Mountain which overlooks Crickhowell town (10.5 miles).

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.
