Property code: 58393

Nestled into the rolling countryside between two villages with magnificent views across to the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons, this cosy retreat is just perfect whatever the time of year.

Situated on a hillside overlooking the spectacular Brecon Beacons National Park, this character cottage is perfect for couples and young families. Sleeping up to three guests and an accompanying hound, you’ll soon be exploring the range of footpaths leading from your doorstep. Fill your itinerary with adventures near and far, visiting the bustling market towns of Brecon 6.5 miles away and Hay-on-Wye 10.5 miles away. Return with armloads of local produce and prepare a feast, best enjoyed over a glass of wine outside in the fading sunshine.

Beneath the charming exterior is a comfortable property peppered with cosy details such as character beams, snug furniture and an inviting wood burner crackling in the fireplace. Step into the warmth and settle down to relax, enjoying meals lovingly prepared in the handy kitchen area. Cottage-style stairs lead to the first floor, where you’ll find a bathroom and two bedrooms with views across the horizon. Outside, the pretty garden has a patio and garden furniture for al fresco dining, and there is a BBQ for treat suppers in the summer. Parking is available for one car.

Follow the narrow winding trails to descend the hill, marvelling at the views of Pen y Fan en route. There is a friendly pub at the bottom serving delicious food and local ales, ideal for a pick-me-up after an exhilarating walk! The mountain itself is a challenge for adrenaline enthusiasts 14 miles away, but nestled amongst the foothills 9.5 miles away are the fabulous Nant Sere waterfalls, a great spot to try wild swimming surrounded by ethereal woodland. Change pace and visit Brecon for shopping and sightseeing, visiting the museum to soak up some history and sampling some delicious fare at one of the eateries.

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

SLEEPS: There are two bedrooms, one is a double and the other a single. Bedlinen and towels are included.

RELAXING: A wood burner is the focal point of the living area and a complimentary basket of logs ensures a cosy and relaxing ambience for all. There is a TV and Wi-Fi is included in your stay.

COOKING & DINING: The kitchen has an electric oven and hob, a fridge with full size under counter freezer and a washing machine.

KEEPING CLEAN: There is one bathroom with a shower over the bath and a toilet, plus some storage space.

OUTSIDE: Outside there is a pretty garden and a charcoal barbeque. Parking is allocated for one car and the nearest pub is one mile away. The nearest shop is three miles away.

PETS: 2 dogs are welcome.

Just returned from a weeks stay in this beautiful accommodation. I loved the view you woke up to each morning looking over the field of cows. Location is not to far from the village and other attractions. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and we will be returning. Sad to leave.

The cottage is lovely and the location fantastic but there was no wifi, which was a real problem as I needed it for work. The owner said the router (which is in the adjoining cottage) would be fixed, but that didnt happen.

This cottage is in a wonderful location. The views from the garden are really special. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. it was easy to get to Brecon, we walked up to the top of Pen Y Fan, we walked from Hay On Wye and to Llanover Priory. While TV viewing is not what we do on holiday, we did want to watch England in the Euro's and the tiny TV was notRead more ideal. As it is a small cottage there is not a great deal of space for your stuff. The Griffin Pub is amazing, but more than a mile away. Hide

We had such a lovely stay here with our two small children (3 and 1) great location for exploring, lots of lovely walks and the national cave centre was an excellent day out.

We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable and cosy cottage. There are great views from the cottage garden of the surrounding countryside. Walks up nearby mountains of Pen y Fan and Pen y Fal are less than an hour's drive away. We can also recommend walking/cycling/running along the nearby Brecon Canal, starting from Brynich Lock going southwards.

Absolutely amazing location with clear views of the mountains. We were very lucky with the weather and it was absolutely stunning. The house was warm and has everything you need.

A great location to 'get away from it all'. Easy reach of Brecon National Park which we really enjoyed exploring. The Griffin was a good pub to have a quick drink on the way home - and dog friendly.

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.
