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.

Abandon your everyday routine and head to this charming bolthole for a romantic retreat in the gorgeous Welsh countryside. Boasting fantastic views across mountain peaks and more, this converted stable is brimming with natural light and the welcoming interior invites you to switch right into holiday mode as soon as you arrive. With plenty of well-trodden trails close to home, head out for days exploring before returning to cosy up for the night.

Nestled in the ground of the owner’s property, blossoming flowers and tall trees create beautiful surroundings for this welcoming abode. Step inside and find yourself in the galley kitchen. Plenty of worktop space, the electric oven and hob, and microwave mean you can serve up a feast or pop an easy meal in to warm after long days exploring the local area. Plate up in the lounge/diner and enjoy beautiful views or dine alfresco and serve up in the garden under the setting sun. Throw treats on the BBQ for an easy sundowner meal. Head back inside and put your feet up in the light lounge where you can laze away in front of the TV before retiring for the night to the tranquil king-size bedroom. Enjoy a soak in the tub or a refreshing shower in the en-suite to start your day before heading out for an adventure.

Just 1.5 miles from the pretty literary town of Hay-on-Wye, spend your day browsing the abundance of book shops, enjoying a pitstop at a welcoming eatery or hopping on the Wye Valley Walk or Offa’s Dyke Walk for a spot of exercise and excitement. A 24-mile trip will take you to the highest peak in South Wales, Pen-y-Fan, where the panoramic views are well worth the climb.

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.
