This wonderful red-brick property is the ideal romantic bolthole for couples wanting to explore the beautiful Mid Wales area but still enjoy a little bit of indulgence in the evenings.

Pack your bags and head to the Welsh countryside for a romantic break. This charming home has all you need, soak in the bubbling hot tub or stay dry and switch on the projector for the perfect film night. Less than a mile from the bustling Builth Wells, wander into town and grab a bite to eat or follow the River Wye for some fresh air and a stroll. Welcoming your dog too, leave no one behind on your Welsh adventure.

This humble abode is full of cosy spots to put your feet up and has a lovely outdoor space where you can dine alfresco on sunny days. The open-plan ground floor creates the hub of the home. Curl up on the sofa (which doubles up as a sofa bed), switch on the projector and lose yourself in your favourite film or throw open the doors to let the fresh air flood inside. The sleek kitchen is a great space in which to throw together meals which can be enjoyed at the breakfast bar or outside on the terrace. To relax before bed, hop in the hot tub and soak under the stars, raising a tipple or two as you gaze out over rooftops and rolling hills. Climb stairs to the first floor where you can find the snug bedroom with its own Juliet balcony. Freshen up in the spacious en-suite shower room which has a contemporary feel and lovely marble-effect tiles.

Wander into the heart of the town or travel further afield to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park. A 17-mile journey south will take you to the vibrant town of Brecon. Continue on for 5 miles to reach Pen y Fan, the highest peak in South Wales, where you will be rewarded for the climb with panoramic views across the gorgeous national park.

Wonderful relaxing week. From our pre visit telephone call and throughout our stay, Jill the owner was kind and helpful without being intrusive. The lodge was clean, well equipped and comfortable. A short easy walk (even on crutches) to Builth Wells high street. Would love to visit again and will highly recommend.

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.
