A deceptively spacious glamping lodge with wood burner, for couples seeking a rural bolthole in the heart of the Mid-Wales countryside with walks from the doorstep.

Situated in front of the owner’s traditional longhouse, this quirky 18-foot lodge enjoys glorious views across the fields towards the Epynt Mountain and the valley below. There are wonderful walks straight from the door through woodland and fields, offering plentiful wildlife spotting opportunities. Situated in a remote location, the lodge offers an escape from the stresses and strains of modern life. The village of Cilmery (2.5 miles) has a well-regarded traditional inn and there is a request-stop train station for the Heart of Wales Railway Line. Take time to see the stone monument to Prince Llewelyn, slain on the banks of the river. Shops and a choice of cafes and restaurants can be found at nearby Builth Wells (6 miles) where you can ramble along the banks of the River Wye. Explore the Elan Valley (8 miles) where you will find scenic walks and picturesque picnic spots. Further afield, the popular towns of Brecon (20 miles) and Hay-on-Wye are well worth a visit.

Set in the grounds of the owner’s property, this comfortable cedar-clad lodge offers well-designed accommodation on one level. Follow the pathway and take the three steps to the lodge’s door. Enter into the open-plan interior with wood-panelled walls and colourful soft furnishings. At one end of the lodge is the comfortable king-size bed, dressed in a hand-crocheted bed cover with co-ordinating handmade cushions. There is a compact but well-equipped kitchen area with a two-ring hob, microwave/oven and fridge with freezer compartment. Dine at the pull-out table and chairs as you enjoy the views across the valley through the lodge’s double doors before curling up in one of the cosy chairs and chatting in front of the flickering flames of the wood burner. A shower room with WC completes the accommodation.

Outside, dine alfresco on your private balcony where you will find a bistro-style table and chairs for romantic sunset meals. The garden area is equipped with a BBQ and firepit, perfect for evenings spent stargazing under the clear skies. Bring your binoculars as the wider surrounding gardens have been designed to attract wildlife and you may spot the barn owls and woodpeckers which are visitors to the garden. There is ample parking available. Yoga classes and textile courses can be arranged with the owners upon request.

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.
