This stunning property is ideal for friends or families looking to soak up some rural tranquillity, relax in beautiful surroundings and explore the area on foot or by bike.

Set above the sleepy hamlet of Merthyr Cynog, this property occupies a fantastic vantage point with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and the Brecon Beacons National Park in the distance (10 miles south). Closer to home, guests can explore the Mynydd Eppynt Ranges, which offer varied routes and trails for cyclists and walkers alike, such as the newly appointed Eppynt Way, a 90km waymarked bridleway. Attractive market towns Brecon and Builth Wells are both within 10 miles with a range of independent shops, eateries and other amenities. When you return home of an evening, head to the games room for a spot of friendly competition, or soak in the hot tub (available on a rota basis).

The property is well-presented with a blend of contemporary and traditional fixtures and fittings, including 'home-grown' oak beams, doors and windows throughout which add character and warmth. On entering the property, you’ll find yourself in the large, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. It’s the perfect size to allow everyone to spend time together, but still have their own space. At one end is the well-equipped kitchen which has everything you’ll need. To the middle of the room is the large dining area, which will comfortably seat up to 15 people. At the other end is a comfy lounge with a electric effect woodburner as its focal point, making it snug and cosy. Completing the ground floor is a utility room with a second fridge, a freezer, washing machine and toilet, and a good place to discard muddy boots and coats. Upstairs, there are three immaculately presented and comfortable bedrooms: two family bedrooms each with a double bed and a single bed, and one twin bedroom. One of the family bedrooms has an en-suite shower room, there is also a family bathroom with a bath and large double shower.

Double doors lead out from the living area to a terrace with garden furniture and a BBQ, making it an excellent place for al fresco dining against a spectacular backdrop. There is a shared hot tub and games room, which is available on a rota basis, and a secure lockable shed for bikes and other equipment. Younger children will enjoy the climbing frame with swings and slide, as well as feeding the lambs on the farm during March and April. There is ample off-road 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.
