A Scandinavian-inspired lodge tucked in the foothills of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, boasting panoramic views and easy access to an abundance of scenic walks.

Discover the beautiful landscape and exciting trails throughout the Usk Valley from this unique vantage point on the slopes of the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Encircled by mature gardens, this cosy property sleeps four guests along with one dog and is perfectly located for scenic walks and leisurely evening trips to the well-renowned pub half a mile away. It is an ideal choice for couples, small families and friendship groups alike, especially if you are keen to tantalise your taste buds with local delicacies at one of two Michelin-starred restaurants or the array of gastropubs that are also easily reached within 9 miles.

 

Homely and comforting throughout and accessed via a gently stepped path, your humble abode has character beams and vaulted ceilings, featuring a country-cottage decor and comfortable furniture. Relax in the lounge with snacks aplenty, and rustle up a feast in the pretty kitchen ready to dine in style. You’ll have a choice of sleeping quarters at bedtime, whether you opt for the elegant double bedroom or the handy twin with zip-and-link beds that can be converted into a continental double or king-size bed on request. Completing the property is a useful shower room, and there are shared laundry facilities on-site. On balmy summer evenings, you can settle down on the terrace in the hot tub with a glass of wine in hand, or explore the shared gardens looking out for the resident pheasants that frequent the patch of woodland.

 

Bring your camera and walking boots and prepare to take in the scenery from your doorstep, scaling the mountain or wandering down into the valley itself. The market town of Crickhowell is a short 2 miles drive away offering a plethora of independent shops, inns and interesting historical landmarks including a motte and bailey castle and a pretty walk leading to an Iron Age fort at the top of Crug Hywel.

Fabulous location! Right on Sugar Loaf with stunning views all around. Wood fired hot tub took a bit of getting used to but was lush after a hike up the mountain. Less than 5 minutes walk to the local pub serving delicious home cooked food. Cottage itself is spacious and comfortable. We had a fantastic weekend and will definitely return.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
