Perfect for families or couples with four-legged friends, this delightfully refurbished character cottage boasts homely accommodation, an enclosed garden and a wonderful location close to many excellent walks and mountain bike routes.

Stay in this fantastic period property situated in a quiet hamlet in the Brecon Beacons. The cottage sleeps four guests and is a great set up for families or couples, and three dogs are also welcome. The local area, known as ‘Waterfall Country’, is a spectacular place to stroll around and enjoy the pretty sights.

This double-fronted stone cottage is brimming with period charm. It has its original timber flooring, traditional windows and a stone inglenook fireplace which houses a wood burner to keep you warm on chilly evenings. The house is finished with decor to match the style, such as a Welsh dresser, farmhouse table and tasteful linen in the bedrooms. There is also an enclosed garden for you to enjoy, with two chimineas and a BBQ to relax beside with a glass of wine in the evenings. Better yet, the views from the garden are stunning, taking in the rolling, open fields surrounding the property.

Spot wildlife, enjoy a picnic or simply take a gentle walk around the picturesque Usk Reservoir (4.5 miles). Dan-yr-Ogof Caves (13 miles) is a 17-kilometre-long cave system formed over 350 million years ago by an underground river, a great place to take the family. Don your walking boots and take on the highest peak in the area, Pen y Fan (14 miles). If you are less encouraged by the daunting peak, there are plenty of gentler walking routes in the area including the Epynt Way Footpath in nearby Sennybridge (3 miles). When you’re ready to tuck into a pleasant evening meal or a few drinks, visit Brecon (12 miles) with its eclectic mix of independently run amenities.

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.
