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.

Pretty market town Builth Wells is 0.5 miles walk away, and visitors will have no trouble finding something to do there. Try the Wyeside Arts Centre or Groe Park, which has great views of Wye Bridge. Further afield but still within easy reach is the Brecon Beacons (23 miles), perfect for both two- and four-legged walkers, while Cwm Rhaeadr Forest (26 miles) has some fantastic mountain biking trails. Hay-on-Wye (19.5 miles), on the cusp of the Welsh border, boasts independent bookshops, Hay Castle and the Globe at Hay, which hosts an array of performances. For some peace and solitude, visit Elan Valley (17 miles), where you can bird watch, fish, or simply stroll.


Stepping into the property, a bright and airy open-plan living area awaits you. The contemporary kitchen has shiny cupboards and appliances with everything you need to cook up a storm, including an electric oven and microwave; eat at the delightful breakfast bar in the mornings to prepare yourself for an exciting day ahead. In the living area the sofa, which can be made into a double bed, and comfy chairs surround a huge cinema screen TV that has Freeview and a DVD with a selection of films to choose from. Doors lead out to the terrace from this room. Upstairs, a tranquil double bedroom adds a boutique feel to your stay; enjoy your morning coffee on the Juliet balcony that has a table and chairs and offers fabulous views over a small farmyard and to the hills beyond the rooftops of Builth Wells. The spacious en-suite shower room with WC has dazzling marble-effect tiling that makes it a pleasure to freshen up in.


Outside, the decked terrace has garden furniture and a chiminea, making it ideal for al fresco meals whatever the time of day. Look out across spectacular views from the private hot tub after a long day exploring the area.

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.

Absolutely loved staying here. Was so quiet and perfect for what we wanted. Amazing welcome package when we got there and everything we needed. Owners were so helpful if we needed them. It was perfect for us as we like to be left alone to just chill out and do what we want to do and that?s exactly how we had it.

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.
