Property code: BN289

Enjoying a quiet location set back from the main village, this spacious cottage offers comfortable accommodation for up to six guests, acting as a peaceful base for exploring the surrounding village and countryside.


Glasbury-on-Wye is a delightful town on the banks of a winding river, home to a popular restaurant, a friendly cafe, and a welcoming pub. The winding River Wye with its long, shingled beach offers a variety of activities such as swimming, paddling, fishing and birdwatching, or you can simply relax with a picnic in the sunshine. Hay-on-Wye is a 5-mile drive away, famous for books and its vibrant festival that takes place every May. It is also an ideal place to visit for some retail therapy or to challenge your inner thrill-seeker by booking an activity at the outdoor adventure centre, 4 miles away. Venturing further afield, the Brecon Beacons National Park is easily reached within 12 miles, where you can walk, cycle or even pony trek across the beautiful landscape.

Step inside to discover a homely and inviting property, which has been thoughtfully equipped with everything you could need for a family holiday. A cosy lounge provides the perfect setting for relaxing evenings curled up on the sofas for a family film night. Gather around the dining table for meals, or perch with a pot of tea and a few board games on blustery, cold days. Pick up delicious produce from one of the local villages, transforming it into a hearty feast in the galley-style kitchen which is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, electric oven, hob, microwave and fridge/freezer. Climb the stairs to find the elegant bedrooms – two doubles and one twin – and a family bathroom with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Outside, the large garden has plenty of lawn space for younger guests and the family dog to let off some steam. Wake up to the sound of birdsong, stepping outside for an al fresco breakfast before the day’s adventures begin.

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.
