Property code: BN276

This fabulous property has the perfect mix of the traditional and contemporary and is perfectly placed for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park, with room for the whole family.

Just 10 miles from the Brecon Beacons, this cottage is a walker’s delight. Nearby Drostre Wood (2 miles) is rich with wildlife and is the perfect place to take little legs if they can’t quite manage a hike, as is Garwnant Forest (17 miles). Take a canoe out on the water with Celtic Canoes (12 miles), who run guided sessions as well as canoe hire and experience the Welsh countryside from a different perspective. And when you’re worn out and need a little indulgence, book a table at the nearby pub, less than 1 mile down the road, for some fine dining.

The cottage is deceivingly spacious and has beautiful decor that is sympathetic to this 18th-century property. Rich parquet flooring and cosy rugs in the living room welcome you to sink into the sofas in front of the wood burner while you enjoy some TV. You’ll find everything you need in the bright and airy kitchen/diner that has fantastic views from the window; sit and enjoy meals around the large dining table while you plan your day together. There’s a utility room with a sink, washing machine and drying area, making it the perfect place to store muddy boots after a day out walking. You’ll also find a separate WC on the ground floor. Heading up a flight of stairs you will find three large bedrooms; a tranquil double bedroom which has a spacious walk-in wardrobe, while a beautiful king-size bedroom has the best views in the house. The remaining room has three single beds, making it the ideal den for the kids. There’s also a separate shower room on this level as well as a peaceful family bathroom.

Head out to the garden where you’ll find a large lawn and a sheltered terrace with garden furniture. Look out across the most wonderful views across to the Beacons’ ridge from the Carmarthen Fan in the west to the Black Mountains in the east. There’s also a BBQ out here so you can enjoy an al fresco meal, watching the sun set behind the mountains. If you’ve got bikes with you, there’s a lockable barn next to the property.

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.
