Beautifully converted traditional farmhouse offering excellent dog-friendly holiday accommodation with a hot tub in the heart of the Welsh countryside within easy reach of Hay-on-Wye and Builth Wells.

This beautiful farmhouse, located on the outskirts of the small hamlet of Rhosgoch, near Paincastle, is in a prime position to explore the Black Mountains, Wye Valley and the Brecon Beacons. Less than 4 miles away is the book town of Hay-on-Wye which hosts the world-renowned literary festival and within 20 miles are the historic towns of Brecon and Builth Wells, the latter of which hosts the vibrant Royal Welsh Show. Locally there are excellent opportunities for hiking, cycling, pony trekking, canoeing, fishing and much more. There is a 9-hole golf club within walking distance and the local pub can be found in the village of Painscastle, less than 2 miles away. Hay-on-Wye (4 miles) is a lovely town with independent boutique shops, bookshops, coffee shops and restaurants.

As you enter the property, you are welcomed into the open-plan lounge/dining area, separated only by the original farmhouse chimney stack, creating a beautiful focal point for the room. The lounge area offers ample, comfortable seating in the form of two sofas and two armchairs centred around the Smart TV and entertainment centre. A Nintendo Wii has been provided with a selection of games to enjoy together. The lounge has beautiful French doors taking you directly out onto the patio area. In the dining area, you will find a good size dining table for eight adjacent to the kitchen. It's the perfect space to enjoy a meal or a board game with family and friends. The country kitchen has been equipped with a range-style electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and under-counter refrigerator. There is a kitchen island provided for your morning coffee or for guests to enjoy the kitchen as a social space while preparing meals. Just off the kitchen, there is a good size utility room with a washing machine, sink and freestanding fridge/freezer. Completing the ground floor is a spacious downstairs WC off the utility room. Heading upstairs, onto the first floor, you will find all four bedrooms plus a family bathroom. The first bedroom is a king-size room with an en-suite shower room with a shower and WC. The second room is a good size double and bedrooms three and four are either super-king-size or twins rooms, whichever you prefer. The family bathroom has a shower over the bath and WC.

Externally, the property benefits from a large patio for entertaining with outdoor seating and a BBQ provided, should you wish to dine al fresco. There is a hot tub next to the seating area to relax in after a day of exploring the area. Above the driveway, there is a fully enclosed field to allow the children and/or dogs to stretch their legs in safety. Please be advised there is a small ravine at the periphery of the field and a stream will run through it during wet weather - children and animals must be supervised at all times. The field has a rustic seating area and a fire pit so you can take in the glorious sunset whilst enjoying a cold beer or a glass of wine and toasting marshmallows. To the rear of the property, a barn has been converted into a games room with a pool table and table tennis facilities - perfect entertainment for rainy days. There is also ample space within the games room to store equipment such as bikes (bring your own padlocks) and there’s also a dog cage for an outdoor kennel if required. The gravel driveway offers ample parking.

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.
