We had a wonderful time at Old Orchard, it is ideally placed for exploring the area and we couldn't get enough of the views. Communication from the owner Tim was top notch via email a week or so before our stay outlining everything we could possibly need to know about the property. The property itself is well equipped with the kitchen having prettyRead more much everything you could possibly need for cooking. Plenty of tourist info leaflets to browse through. Great for walking, cycling & horse riding. Hide

There is a fantastic view of the mountains from this peaceful, clean and well presented property and we thoroughly enjoyed our week here. Near to Brecon and lovely Crickhowell and Abergavenny, plus a short drive to Pen y Fan and Llangorse Lake. The house had everything we needed and very comfy beds. There were a lot of instructions from the owner aRead morend we didn't ever really master the heating/hot water situation but it was fine. Really needs some better garden furniture and a barbecue, though. Hide

A lovely bungalow in a beautiful location. Has nearly everything youd want. Only spoilt by the confusing instructions for the heating /hot water and the completely incorrect password for the wi fi and lack of comfortable garden furniture.

We had a thoroughly relaxing time at Old Orchard made even better with the glorious weather! The views from the garden of the Beacons and river Usk are amazing. The property is comfortable and spacious, all conveniently on one level, with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Old Orchard was a perfect location close to many trails (Llangorse lakeRead more or the Allt) & places of interest within an easy drive (Brecon, Crickhowell, the canal, the beacons & its many reservoirs). We would love to return! Hide

An good property with fantastic views over the hills and valleys. Well equipped kitchen and utility room catering for all necessary requirements for an enjoyable stay, if you get the weather. Village residents are friendly and appreciate you driving slowly down the lane as children may be visiting, take time to chat to them. Excellent shops within Read morea few miles and plenty of eating establishments although not all open at the moment. Lots to see and do and a week is not really long enough. Hide

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.
