A private bolthole in beautiful surroundings on the edge of the Clyro Village, in the heart of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Enjoying a private location in the grounds of the owner's house, this charming stone cottage is surrounded by lovely mature gardens with fragrant flower beds and shady trees to picnic under. Located on the edge of the medieval village of Clyro, the popular town of Hay-on-Wye (1.5 miles) is a short drive or walk away 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 of your stay. Discover the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park by foot or cycle with the peaks of Pen y Fan (26 miles) and The Skirrid (23 miles) within reach. Both the Wye Valley Walk and Offa’s Dyke Walk runs through Hay-on-Wye offering traffic-free trails. Not to be missed is the ancient city of Hereford with its imposing cathedral, ruined castle and cider museum.

Reached up a quiet lane, this lovely retreat enjoys a peaceful and private location tucked away in the mature forest garden. Step through the front door and into the galley kitchen where you will find everything you need to prepare meals for two. With an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and freezer, unpack your provisions for a home-from-home stay. There is a washing machine and drying room in the adjoining utility room for your convenience. Step through into the generous lounge/diner where you can dine with a view at the cosy table set next to the large window. This is a bright and airy room with local landscapes adorning the walls. Snuggle up on the sofa to watch a film on the TV or listen to music on the CD player as you chat late into the evening. When it’s time for bed head through into the restful bedroom and drift off to sleep in the king-size bed. The bedroom benefits from a spacious en-suite bathroom with corner bath and separate shower cubicle.

Stepping outside, dine alfresco in your private seating area enjoying the views across to the Black Mountains or light the BBQ for a relaxed evening meal. There is secure bike storage and ample parking at the property.

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.
