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.

Set within the small and peaceful village of Trecastle in the Brecon Beacons, this property is within half a mile of the local pub and antique centre. Set out on foot with four-legged friends to explore the spectacular local area, taking in the Waterfall County and Dan-yr-Ogof Caves along the way. For a more challenging walk, take on the mighty Pen Y Fan (14 miles), the highest peak in southern Britain, which offers jaw-dropping views from its summit. Head west to reach the picturesque Usk Reservoir (4.5 miles), a wonderful spot for cycling, stone skimming, picnics, fishing and walking. Or, for amenities, head east to reach the market town of Brecon (12 miles).

This recently renovated double fronted stone cottage is brimming with charm both inside and out, with its original timber flooring, pretty windows and a stone inglenook fireplace. Prepare and enjoy delicious family meals in the traditional kitchen/diner, where you will find an electric oven, gas hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, together with a farmhouse table and Welsh dresser. Stepping through to the welcoming sitting room, inviting sofas and chairs surround a fantastic exposed stone inglenook fireplace with wood burner, with a large Sky TV. There is a WC on the ground floor. Upstairs are two delightful bedrooms, both of which are finished with goose and down duvets, quality linen and calming neutral decor. A king-size bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom and shower over the bath, plus a TV with Blu-Ray and CD player, while a twin bedroom has an en-suite shower room.

Outside, a pretty garden with a BBQ and two chimineas boasts wonderful views across open fields. There is off-road parking for two cars.

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.
