One of four beautiful lodges set within the grounds of a traditional working farm, it’s perfect for enthusiastic walkers, with farm trails and access to the Brecon Beacons Way and Usk Canal.

Set within the grounds of a traditional working farm, you can enjoy plenty by foot from this lodge, with well-marked farm trails and wildlife ponds where you can take a dip or enjoy the wildlife. It’s a short walk into Talybont-on-Usk which is well served with two pubs and shops and ideally situated for exploring the Taff Cycle Trail, the Brinore Tramroad, and the Henry Vaughan Walk. The Blaen y Glyn waterfalls are nearby (7.5 miles), or you can take a walk around the Pontsticill Reservoir (8 miles) or a trip on a steam train through the region. The popular town of Brecon (8.5 miles) has a cinema, theatre, historic cathedral, and several great independent shops and places to eat and drink.

Enjoy the views across the valley before you step inside this beautiful lodge, finished to a very high standard and perfect for couples wanting to get away and enjoy the countryside. The open-plan living space has been well configured offering guests a cosy space to relax and unwind in front of the wood burner (first basket of logs included). For dining, there is a table and chairs, and for the chef amongst you, there’s a bespoke kitchen that is well-equipped to offer an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher and washing machine. A generous king-size bedroom with garden views offers access to a luxury bathroom with a free-standing bath, his-and-hers sinks and a WC.

Outside, the garden has an open aspect within sympathetically landscaped grounds. There is a hot tub where you can relax and enjoy the dark skies, as well as a table and chairs for dining and a BBQ. There is guest parking for two cars within the on-site car park.

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.
