A picture book cottage for couples or small families set beside 2,500 acres of forest, perfect for exploring the South Wales countryside and coastline.

This traditional-style cottage boasts a contemporary decor inside, perfectly presented with all the home comforts required throughout your stay.

Dog owners be aware of the road passing the cottage with cars driving at high speed. The garden is not properly fenced off as have gaps in the gate and dogs can get through. There is a shooting range nearby and our dogs were petrified by the continuous gunshots for 3 days. We did not know. The bath is small making getting in and out a task.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here. The location next to the wood was ideal for walking our dog and we were in easy reach of the Brecons and other places of interest. The cottage was warm and comfortable and we look forward to returning.

Beautiful little red cottage, isolated but so close to shops and villages. Walk in the woods from doorstep. Garden is gorgeous. Everything we needed was provided. Well placed for trips into the Brecon Beacons, around Gower and the Valleys. Owner lives local and available if needed. Would recommend.

Loved the quietness of the cottage and location. Owner Mr Hopkins was very accommodating nothing was too much trouble. Would stay there again. Wouldn't suit anyone who wanted to be in the middle of a bustling atmosphere. Lovely countryside around, not far from Swansea and the beaches of the gower and beaches towards Cardiff. Heads of the valley Rd Read morenot too far away if you wanted to visit further afield like we did. Would definitely go back there. Hide

Cottage was comfortable and ideally located. We had one small issue in the cottage, which was dealt with immediately and we also received follow up messages from the owner to make sure that all was well. Couldn't ask for anymore from the owner.

Location

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.
