Property code: BN294

Situated adjacent to the historic farmstead and the only surviving water-powered corn mill on the river, this charming former granary has been beautifully converted into an inviting hideaway fit for romantic escapes.

Find complete relaxation at this tranquil getaway for two next to the owner’s farmhouse and watermill. It’s set beside the River Honddu, regarded as one of Europe’s most important rivers for its rare wildlife including otters, salmon, British crayfish and kingfishers. You can walk along the riverbank to the historic Georgian town of Brecon, just half a mile away, which has vibrant galleries, boutique shops and a 1930s-style cinema.


You’ll enter the property up a flight of stone steps, and be welcomed by a cosy living space. This former granary has bags of character, with exposed beams, slanted ceilings, solid oak flooring, oriental rugs and a traditional Welsh dresser. Prepare romantic suppers in the bespoke oak kitchen, or dine alfresco in the garden, perhaps with your faithful canine companion by your side. On cosy nights in, pick a book from the collection provided, play music or curl up on the comfy sofa to watch TV. The main bedroom is a cosy place to drift off at the end of a busy day, or you can enjoy a long hot soak in the cast iron bath.


When you’re not strolling through ancient woodland surrounding the cottage, you can spread your wings further afield. The ancient hill fort of Pen y Crug (2 miles) has wonderful views from the top, while Pen y Fan (7 miles), the highest peak in South Wales, offers an even more challenging climb. Travel further into the Brecon Beacons to go underground and walk behind cascading waterfalls at the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (19.5 miles).

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

Lovely place which has been restored with care and skill by Noel & Susie. Everything a couple could want in a holiday cottage all within a single floor. Located in a peaceful spot yet handy for main roads or a walk into town. Susie and Noel are great hosts - welcoming, friendly and helpful. Always available if you need them. We will be back for morRead moree of this cottage and there is lots more that we'd like to see and do in the area. Hide

An amazing place, the flat was beautiful in its decoration, we had everything we needed. It was lovely and clean. The whole mill was so interesting, loved the chickens and Noel and Susie were really interesting to talk to.

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.
