One of two fantastic properties in a beautiful setting in the Brecon Beacons, with lots to see and do right on your doorstep. A lovingly presented home to return to and relax in at the end of your day.

Lying in the shadow of the Skirrid and the Sugar Loaf Mountain, this fantastic family hideaway is set in a beautiful location on the eastern edge of the glorious Brecon Beacons National Park. An imaginatively converted and beautifully decorated former henhouse, the property offers fabulous holiday accommodation for four guests. This attractive retreat is one of a pair of bright and friendly properties on-site. Offering stunning views over spellbinding countryside, this stylish property makes a delightful haven for eager walkers, cyclists, climbers and nature lovers. Stepping into this bright and fresh property you will find the spacious, airy and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a double-height ceiling and bi-fold doors. This is a relaxing living space with a Smart TV, plenty of comfortable seating, an attractive dining area and a fully equipped kitchen which is a pleasure to cook in. Exploring this single-level property further, there are two cosy bedrooms: a delightful king-size bedroom and an en-suite shower room, and a charming twin room with an en-suite bathroom. Going outside, the large, enclosed garden features a large lawn with a patio and outdoor furniture, perfect for a lazy afternoon, and there are extensive grounds to explore too. This refreshing and welcoming holiday home is a great base for keen walkers, cyclists and climbers. The Skirrid is nearby (4.5 miles) and the Sugar Loaf (7.5 miles), at the southern summit of the Black Mountains, is also within easy reach. The area has plenty of historic attractions including Keeper’s Pond (10.5 miles), Blaenavon Ironworks (11 miles), the Big Pit (12.5 miles) and Monmouthshire’s Three Castles: White Castle (4 miles), Grosmont (6 miles) and Skenfrith (10 miles). You will also find a wide choice of friendly pubs, independent shops and welcoming restaurants in the bustling market towns of Abergavenny (4.5 miles) and Crickhowell (10.5 miles).

Stunning location, a true natural beauty. The only sounds are geese on the lake and sheep, the property was lovely with obvious care and love in its preparation.

Very well (high spec) equipped. Lovely induction hob. Considering the premises are dog friendly and fully booked the place was spotless inside and out. We had a problem with a wasp nest in the garden, having spoken to shane it was sorted within 2 hours. Excellent customer service.

This is an excellent very modern cottage that we loved staying in. The very large living room with kitchen and dining areas was ideal. This and the enclosed garden was great for our pet greyhound who instantly loved it. What we also really liked were the long distance views which made the stay special. We visited Usk, Abergavenny, Crickhowell and BRead morerecon which were all within a short drive and found all really friendly (especially in these Covid affected times when everyone was being careful).

A note for small dog owners - We have two small terriers; one of whom is very inquisitive & she did make her way out of the garden on a few occasions; through gates & under fences, so we couldnt leave her unattended.

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.
