Interesting days out at Blaenavon Iron Works and The Big Pit or perhaps try star gazing at the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre. There are plenty of activities to enjoy including riding, golf, kayaking on the Usk and Wye or a visit to Hay-on-Wye, the town of books, which is within easy reach.

Entering into the property, the interior is a marvellous surprise with a light and airy feel, achieved with a contemporary finish following a conversion in 2017. Step into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, the double height ceiling adds to the spacious feel of this impressive room. There are two leather sofas alongside a large coffee table to play games or just watch the Smart TV. Beyond, there is a kitchen with electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher, the washing machine.

All laid out across the ground floor there are two bedrooms, a master king-size with en-suite shower room with WC and a twin bedroom (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request) with an en-suite bathroom with WC. All in all, a fabulous and warming environment, with the benefit of underfloor heating, making this a super family or couples’ retreat at any time of year.

The cottage was very spacious and spotlessly clean and the garden was a lovely size and safe for the dogs. The area was very peaceful and not far from a lot of the surrounding beauty spots and lovely walks.

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 very well equipped property with super comfortable beds. 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.
