Escape to the Brecon Beacons for a memorable getaway for two with this unique and enchanting hut just a short walk from the local pub, shops, walking and cycling routes.

Escape to the gorgeous Welsh countryside for a romantic retreat and snuggle up in this cabin-style bolthole. Spend time relaxing in the mezzanine bedroom where you can gaze for hours out of the Velux window before heading out to explore the local villages with their welcoming pubs, waterside walks and scenic spots.

Though compact, this home feels spacious and light and is perfect for romantic evenings in after days exploring the Brecon Beacons. The kitchen is home to a fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle so you can warm up easy meals and enjoy a steaming cup of tea. Outside, sizzle up tasty treats on the BBQ for sundowner evenings where you can dine alfresco on the patio. Watch the sun set with a tipple in hand before retiring inside to curl up on the sofa in front of the SkyTV. Climb the ladder to the mezzanine-style bedroom where you can spend peaceful mornings lazing in bed before soaking in the tub for a relaxing start to the day. If you fancy a quick freshen up, then there is a shower over the bath.

Stroll into the local village of Gilwern and follow the towpath, which runs alongside the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, for a gentle walk. Head to Gilwern Wharf to hire a boat and make a splash on the water before tucking into something tasty at one of the village pubs. Travel 11 miles to the majestic Sugar Loaf Mountain where you can admire views across the Usk Valley and River Usk or make the longer journey of 30 miles to Pen-y-Fan, the highest peak in South Wales.

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?
