Perfect family retreat to relax, enjoy activities and explore the heritage, culture and countryside in Wales and its borders.

This spacious property, in the heart of Carmarthenshire, sleeps 13 guests and has an open-plan layout, ideal for large get-togethers and celebrations. The property is set in 60 acres of countryside and boasts uninterrupted rural views. There is an enclosed garden, laid to lawn, where children and dogs can play. The area is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, with walks from the front door and Crychan Forest less than 1 mile away. The property is also just 8 miles from the north-western fringe of the Brecon Beacons National Park. A warm welcome awaits you inside the impressive stone building, with wooden floors running throughout and a russet-themed decor. The vast kitchen has ample room to cook meals for the whole group, to enjoy together around the large dining table looking over the countryside. In the evening, retire to the spacious lounge, which has seating for everyone and a roaring wood burner to create a cosy atmosphere. Chat long into the night over a bottle of wine or watch a film on the Smart TV. Heading outside, discover an enclosed garden with a lawn and patio, again benefitting from far-reaching views. You’ll also find picnic benches for al fresco dining, as well as a BBQ. Crychan Forest is a brilliant place for kids (and adults!) to burn off steam, with a huge network of waymarked trails to explore on foot, bike, or horseback. There are also picturesque picnic spots dotted throughout the forest. The historic market town of Llandovery (8 miles) is well worth a visit. Full of Welsh culture and heritage, it’s a great place to pick up local crafts and produce. From here you can access the Cambrian Mountains. Often overlooked by tourists, it’s the perfect location to switch off from it all, surrounded by nature and stunning scenery.

Located on a working farm so a little bit off the beaten track but well worth it being surrounded by beautiful countryside and wonderful views. The cottage is stocked with practically everything required for a comfortable and enjoyable stay,we all particularly loved the hot tub.

Rhydins Fawr is absolutely perfect. From the warm welcome to the warm waters of the hot tub everything was exactly as you'd wish for. The pictures don't do this property justice, and you have to see the views for them to be believed. Enjoying a glass of prosecco looking over the fields and hills whilst easing aching muscles in the hot tub is not toRead more be missed. You can walk/bike straight from the house. Hide

Really lovely stay in the cottage, very well equipped and everything you need. Beds were super comfy and the decor was beautiful. We were a family of 12 and the open plan lounge was perfect. The views were to die for and the complimentary items were very much appreciated especially the huge Victoria sponge We would definitely return one day.

We were very pleased with the food starter pack and there was plenty of crockery, glasses, cutlery & utensils for my party. The cottage appeared very clean on arrival although one toilet could have been a bit cleaner.

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.
