Return to this immaculate holiday cottage in the west of the Brecon Beacons National Park, after a day exploring vast mountain wilderness, moorlands, woods, towns and villages stretching across Powys and Carmarthenshire.

Lying on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons, this scenic holiday home for four is a fabulous base for exploring Fforest Fawr. This extensive geopark offers fantastically diverse countryside, including mountains, woodlands, gorges, lakes and rivers. So, if you love being outdoors, you’ll love it here. You’ll be able to get plenty of fresh air at the cottage itself. The enclosed garden is a safe environment for children, who can play while you watch the sun set over the fields.

Inside, the roomy living space doesn’t feel cramped, and on warm days you can fling open the French doors that lead to the garden to let in more light. If there’s a chill in the air, switch on the wood burner-effect gas fire in the lounge to keep warm and cosy. Family meals cooked in the range-style electric oven can be enjoyed around the kitchen dining table. There’s a handy power shower and WC on the ground floor, and you can store your wet and muddy outdoor clothes in the utility room. Upstairs, you’ll find a family bathroom and both bedrooms – a double and a twin. Outside, relish in the peace and tranquillity as you sit back with a glass of wine on the terrace or enjoy a leisurely al fresco breakfast.

Put on your walking boots for a hike around the Usk Reservoir (10 miles), hire electric mountain bikes at Sennybridge (8.5 miles) or blaze a trail through Crychan Forest (6 miles). Alternatively, go underground at Dolaucothi Gold Mines (12.5 miles) and the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (16 miles), which also has a dinosaur park where you can get up close and personal with a life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex. Visit the nearby market town of Llandovery (2.5 miles) for shops, pubs and a historic castle.

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.
