Set within 500 acres of scenic countryside and near to the Epynt Way walk, spend the day walking, hiking and biking over mountain and valley before returning to this cosy farmhouse to relax in the hot tub.

This charming dog-friendly country cottage is set on a working farm in Powys, with two additional holiday properties on site. It’s ideal for families or a group of friends who enjoy being at one with nature and making happy holiday memories together. The friendly owners also live on site and are there to help when needed. If you’re planning a special birthday, or a reunion, all three properties can be booked together. There are fantastic shared facilities here, including a games room, a bubbly hot tub, a garden with a children’s playground, and ancient farm woodland to explore. And you’ll find shops and pubs within 5 miles.

Step inside your spacious country-style property, featuring charming oak flooring, original barn windows and exposed timber beams using wood from the farm. Sink into squishy seating in the living area and relax by the electric effect gas wood burner while watching favourite sports and films together. Slumber falls easily in the cosy bedrooms upstairs - there are two doubles (one en-suite), and a twin, plus a family bathroom. Dine alfresco in the seated BBQ area, while children and pup pals play on the lawn.

Stroll into Merthyr Cynog (1.5 miles) where you’ll find a Norman church with connections to St Cynog in 500AD. Lower Chapel village is also close by (4.5 miles), while the small riverside market Talgarth ‘the jewel of the Black Mountains’ is within reach (17.5 miles). Mountain bikes are available for hire on the farm, so pack a picnic, hop on two wheels and head for the hills and valleys of the spectacular Brecon Beacons National Park (6.5 miles). Be inspired by the market town of Brecon (9 miles) where you can enjoy theatre and cinema nights or source delicious Welsh food produce in artisan shops and markets.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
