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.

The bothy is set into the hillside on the edge of Clyro, a small settlement situated on the Welsh border, and just 1.5 miles from the popular town of Hay-on-Wye, where you will find cafes, restaurants, and the world-famous bookshops. Enjoy rambles along the banks of the River Wye and seek out The Warren, a pretty spot for wild swimming. Browse the craft shops set within the grounds of the ancient castle and pick up a souvenir. Discover the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park by foot, with access to the rugged landscape of the National Trust’s The Begwns, where you can enjoy spectacular views or take on the Hay Bluff and Twmpa where you gain further access into the Black Mountains. Both the Wye Valley and Offa’s Dyke trails run through Hay-on-Wye, offering traffic-free walking.

Located up a quiet lane, this lovely retreat enjoys a peaceful location within the owner’s grounds. Step through the front door where you will be pleasantly surprised with the vaulted ceilings and Velux windows enjoying the natural light. The studio offers open-plan living that has been cleverly configured by the owner. The hallway offers space for coats and boots and then continues to the main living area where you have a lounge with Smart TV, a small collection of books and board games, a dining table, and chairs for two. The galley kitchen has been well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, and fridge with ice compartment. There is a washing machine and drying room available on site. To the rear of the studio, you will find a comfortable double bed with reading lamps and a storage area. There is a shower room with a shower and WC.

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.
