Couples can escape their hectic pace of life in this sympathetically restored cottage, which sits beneath some of the Brecon Beacons’ highest peaks and is surrounded by lush green countryside.

Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life in this 18th-century dairy nestled amongst 14 acres of tranquil countryside and beautiful woodland.

Inside, original features blend beautifully with fresh neutral decor and modern home comforts. Prepare tasty meals in the stylish kitchen, which opens onto the sunny conservatory. With a dining table and rattan armchairs, this is a serene space from which to admire the garden and its visiting wildlife in all weathers. When night falls, fire up the wood burner and settle in for a cosy evening of films or TV in the lounge before retiring to one of this property’s two elegantly decorated bedrooms. Outside, a pretty garden with BBQ is ideal for al fresco dining, with a further colourfully planted garden at the front.

Very comfortable chairs, sofas and beds. Very clean and well equipped. Only suggestion is to upgrade the bath room and conservatory lighting. The old energy efficient bulbs take a long time to warm up and even then are a little too dim. Have given 5 stars as we really enjoyed our stay and the cottage was kept warm and welcoming. Would consider retuRead morerning in the future. Hide

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.
