Tucked away behind the charming village of Glasbury, pack your bags and escape for a lovely break on the outskirts of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Full of charm and cosy corners, this inviting home welcomes you to put your feet up and unwind in style after days spent out and about exploring your surroundings. Welcoming your canine companions too, leave no one behind and enjoy some of the area’s best walks together.

Step inside and make yourself right at home at this humble abode. Sofas and chairs are perfectly arranged around the warming wood burner so you can curl up and relax after a busy day in the fresh air. The galley-style kitchen has a sleek finish and contains all you need to cook up a storm. Dine at the table in the lounge for sociable mealtimes or plate up outside on the patio for an al fresco treat. When it’s time to rest your head and revive yourself for tomorrow’s adventures, climb stairs to the first floor where you will find three lovely bedrooms. Two doubles and a twin await weary heads and are calming spaces in which to drift off. In the morning, freshen up in the family bathroom where you can enjoy a soak in the tub or a shower in the shower over the bath.

Head into the local village of Glasbury for a tasty bite to eat, a coffee stop, or to follow the banks of the winding River Wye. Hay-on-Wye is a 5-mile trip from home and is a great destination for a day out. Home to a plethora of bookshops, browse the independent shops for a calm day or travel 4 miles to the activity centre for a day of family fun.

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.
