Enjoying a peaceful location in the grounds of the owner's house, this charming stone bothy is surrounded by mature gardens, located on the hillside on the edge of the medieval village of Clyro.

Set into a hillside on the edge of the quaint village of Clyro, this cute stone bothy enjoys a peaceful location in the grounds of the owner’s house. Sleeping two people in one bedroom and welcoming one canine companion, it’s the ideal rural retreat for a romantic couple who yearn to spend their days hiking the Offa’s Dyke Path or browsing the bookstores in Hay-on-Wye, and their evenings BBQ-ing in the bothy’s garden or snuggling in front of the TV.

Step inside and you’ll find a bright space, with vaulted ceilings and Velux windows that allow plenty the natural light into this open-plan living area that has been cleverly designed by the owner. Kick off your boots in the hallway and make your way through to the galley kitchen to rustle up a romantic meal for two, or head outside into the private garden to fire up the BBQ and enjoy an al fresco dinner. After dinner, crack open a bottle of something cool and crisp and watch the stars come out. As night falls, return indoors to snuggle up in front of the TV, or choose one of the books or boardgames. When the day is done, there’s a double bed to the rear of the studio.

Pack up a picnic, grab your swimsuit and make your way to The Warren (3 miles) – a great wild swimming spot set in a lush green meadow. Afterwards, enjoy a peaceful 0.5-mile stroll into Hay-on-Wye to spend some time browsing its famous bookshops and treating yourself to afternoon tea. Or for some breathtaking views of Brecon Beacons, hike the 2-mile National Trust trail at The Begwns (4 miles).

The studio is well designed open plan accomodation. It is within a short distance from Hay. An ideal spot for exploring the beacons.

Very friendly helpful owners. We felt at home welcome and at ease right from the very start. The enclosed garden and patio area a real bonus. Allowing us to enjoy a relaxing first break with our 9 month old puppy. We loved it.

A small studio on the owners property in a quiet and beautiful location. You can walk straight into the countryside. Plainly furnished, perhaps rather sparce. It has it's own garden, which is overlooked. We had a relaxing stay - and great weather so were outside most of the time.

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.
