Property code: BN248

A spacious two-bedroom bungalow enjoying a peaceful location beside the owner’s farm with easy access to the attractions of the southern Brecon Beacons.

Situated in a truly scenic location, adjacent to the owner’s farm and opposite Craig-y-Nos Castle, reputed to be the most haunted in Wales, this charming two-bedroom bungalow is ideal for families seeking to explore South West Wales. Step out of the front door for wonderful walks through the spectacular landscape, with the imposing Carreg-Goch mountain less than 500 metres away. Lace-up your walking boots and go in search of the wreckage of the crashed World War II Wellington Bomber high on the mountain. The National Show Caves of Wales (1 mile) are not to be missed with a tour of the three magnificent caves, including the chilling Bone Cave where 42 human skeletons dating back to the Bronze Age have been found. The cosmopolitan city of Swansea (22 miles) is well worth a visit and can be combined with a trip to one of the many stunning beaches of The Gower Peninsula (26 miles).

Park your car on the driveway and step through the gate leading to the bungalow’s garden. Follow the pathway to the front door and step through into the spacious entrance hall where there is plenty of room to remove shoes and outdoor clothing. Immediately to the right is the generously sized living room, a bright and welcoming space decorated in pastel tones with artwork adorning the walls and a large bay window offering lovely views. After a long walk, sink into one of the plump sofas and relax in front of the wood burner effect electric fire as you catch up on your favourite programme on the TV. From the hallway, head through to the kitchen/diner where you will find everything you need for your stay including an electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Enjoy your meals at the large dining table that comfortably seats all four guests. Off the kitchen is also a useful airing cupboard. There are two comfortable bedrooms within the property. The master bedroom is decorated in soothing tones with a large bay window looking out across the garden. There’s a double bed, and a dressing table and wardrobe for your belongings. The bright twin bedroom also benefits from views across the garden and comes with ample storage. Completing the accommodation is the family bathroom with electric shower over bath and WC.

Venturing outside, the bungalow is encompassed by a fully enclosed garden with a patio area with table and chairs for al fresco dining. Younger guests will enjoy playing on the lawn or spread out your blanket for a picnic beneath the trees. There is ample parking.

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.
