A charming stone cottage sleeping up to six guests with many retained features, perfect for families seeking to explore the Carmarthenshire countryside.

Enjoying a central location in the sleepy rural village of Cilycwm, only steps away from the welcoming village pub, this attractive coach house offers spacious accommodation blending original features and contemporary style. Stroll around the village to see the medieval church and Dolauhirion Bridge, considered to be one of the 12 most beautiful in the world. Enjoy wonderful walks through Cwn Rhaeadr (1 mile), the valley of the waterfalls, where there are trails for all ages and abilities. The bustling market town of Llandovery (4 miles) has a choice of independent stores, cafes and pubs. Visit the Norman castle and picnic at picturesque Llyn y Fan Fach, reputed to be the home of ‘The Lady in the Lake’. Hop in the saddle for a mountain bike adventure through the waymarked trails of the Brechfa (18 miles) and Crychan (10 miles) forests. Well worth a visit is the Dolaucothi Gold Mines (8.5 miles) where you can journey underground deep into the drift mines.


Situated on the ancient drovers' road through the village, park your car in the courtyard and step through the front door into the cottage where most of the accommodation can be found on the ground floor. The bright and airy kitchen with flagstone floor and whitewashed original stone walls, is filled with natural light from the three roof lights. It is fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable self-catering stay, including an electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, and a washing machine. Share meals at the large dining table which easily sits up to eight guests. After supper head through into the cosy living room where sofas are arranged around the large traditional wood burner. Relax in front of the TV or watch a film on the DVD after a long day of exploration. When it’s time to retire, two of the bedrooms can be found on the ground floor, both comfortable double rooms, tastefully decorated with bright soft furnishings. The master bedroom is full of light from the French doors leading onto the courtyard garden. The second double bedroom is an inviting space with exposed brick walls and ornamental fireplace. There is a shower room and a family bathroom with bath and separate shower on this floor. Climb the steep loft ladder to the mezzanine level that overlooks the living room. Here you will find twin bedroom with one double and one single beneath the sloping ceiling.


Venturing outside, there is a lovely patio garden where you can enjoy your meals alfresco at the patio table or light the BBQ for a relaxed evening meal. There is secure bike storage in the lock-up shed. Parking is available for one car in the courtyard. Extra parking can be arranged with the owners of the neighbouring pub.

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.
