The perfect place to unwind after a day exploring the mountains, lakes and steeply wooded gorges of the southern Brecon Beacons, enjoy the sounds of the river at this charming stone cottage.

The southern Brecon Beacons are a magical expanse of mountains, lakes and Ystradfellte's waterfall country of caves and rushing rivers. Discover the mountains by foot, bike (this is the home of the fabulous Bike Park Wales) or even train on the Brecon Mountain Railway. The city of Swansea is just 15 miles away and is an excellent destination for keen shoppers, as well as those who might like to visit the city’s castle or the National Waterfront Museum. There are even beaches within easy reach, either on Swansea Bay, or a little further away on the beautiful Gower Peninsula. From the cottage, walk in beautiful countryside to the Diamond Mine Heritage Park along the river with meadows full of wildflowers.

Overlooking the River Tawe, this delightful stone cottage has been lovingly renovated, creating a cosy yet elegant holiday home. Light and spacious, accents of colour pop pleasingly against a neutral palette. The kitchen has an electric oven and halogen hob, microwave oven, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, dishwasher and Belfast sink, whilst the separate utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and a small freezer. With ample room for boots and coats, there is also space for a dog bed too. A small sunroom leads off the kitchen, the perfect place for a coffee to catch the early morning rays. The dining room seats six so make meals a sociable affair before retiring to the delightfully comfortable living room to play a board game or catch up with a good book. On chilly evenings cuddle up on the sofa to watch a film as the wood burner flickers. A shower room completes the downstairs whilst upstairs there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a super king-size bed and lovely views across the river, whilst the second bedroom has a double bed. Two further single rooms and a bathroom with a shower over the bath completes the upstairs.

Outside, the large, unenclosed riverside garden has a mass of daffodils in spring, and a lawn perfect for enjoying the sun. Take a stroll up the road, which winds behind the property to The Crychan Valley. There is off-road parking and a shop, pub and restaurant 1.5 miles away.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Everything you need for a great holiday. Very clean and comfortable. Lovely location on the riverbank. Every detail has been thought about. Plenty of space for 6 people and a dog. Would love to stay here again.

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.
