Property code: BN276

This exceptional property (originally an 18th Century farmhouse now modernised for 21st Century living), combines the traditional and the contemporary, and is perfectly situated for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Ideal for families with children and friends, walking groups, cyclists, artists’ groups, or for those just chilling out at home in some of Britain’s most beautiful countryside. All the high ground of the National Park is within easy reach, Drostre Wood nearby (2 miles) is a great place to explore, and there is a bedroom with three single beds, great for sleepovers.

This house has style and country charm; relax in the comfortable sitting room with its oak parquet floor, original fireplace and new wood burner, comfortable sofas and chairs, and 43” Sony TV. Eat in the spacious, bright, and well-equipped kitchen/dining room, or barbecue and dine alfresco on the sheltered terrace on warm sunny evenings. Admire the views along the length of the Usk Valley, from Carmarthen Fan in the west to the Black Mountains in the east (one of the longest ridge views in Great Britain). Enjoy the quiet, and the night skies (the area has night sky status). And if it does rain, your muddy walking boots and wet clothes can dry in the adjoining boiler room.

With 4 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a separate shower room, this much- admired house can accommodate 8 adults or 6 adults and 3 children.

So, summit the peaks (try the highest mountain in southern Britain, Pen-y-Fan, for breath-taking panoramic views), take canal walks, visit Llangors, the largest natural lake in South Wales, with many activities for a family day out, or drive to the bustling market town of Brecon (3 miles), to visit the new cultural centre (Ÿ Gaer), the Cathedral Church, and the Brecon and Monmouth Canal Basin. And, for serious artists’ groups, an adjoining fully equipped studio with dark room and third bathroom, is available on request to the owner (supplementary charge).

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.
