Property code: BN305

Traditional cottage set in a beautiful village location , with open fire for cold winter’s evenings in and a beautiful garden set to lawn for enjoying brighter weather outside.

Treat your loved ones to a relaxing staycation in a cottage that’s straight out of a fairy tale, swapping the stresses of modern life for roaring fires, hearty pub lunches and walks in the countryside. Based in the chocolate-box village of Llangynidr, your holiday accommodation sleeps six guests across four bedrooms, placing you close to the village’s popular pubs and a plethora of footpaths.

This attractive cottage has beamed ceilings, glorious outside spaces and an open fire set in an original stone fireplace. Escape blustery cold days by hunkering down by the crackling embers with hot chocolate, and wake up to delicious breakfasts in the cheerful galley-style kitchen/diner. Stairs lead from the lounge to the first floor where you’ll find two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a bathroom with a shower-over-the-bath. Due to the age of the property, the bedrooms are at various levels, and some have stepped access. The remaining downstairs bedroom has a low door, a single bed and an en-suite shower room. Sip your first coffee of the day in the front garden, and of an afternoon, the rear garden has a terrace with garden furniture and a BBQ so you can sit back and listen to the stream that runs alongside the property. Stone steps lead to a stunning rocky gorge and pool, which is an enchanting place to sit and reflect.

Stroll along the towpath of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, spot kingfishers on the ethereally pretty River Usk, or bring your bikes and set off on an adventure. Keen fishermen can catch salmon and brown trout in the meandering river, or perhaps you could venture to Llangorse Lake 7 miles away to catch pike, perch and eels. The lake is a popular location for water sports, offering kayaking, paddleboarding and sailing.

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

Well positioned, near but not too near main roads, plenty of walks of varying degrees of difficulty nearby, a cosy house with ample equipment in a long galley kitchen, including a supply of large teddy bears and toy cars, and a big library including John Le Carre. The welcome pack was much appreciated

A few things need attention. Upstairs bathroom has insect problem. The pit in the garden should be safely covered. There should be recycling containers and a wheelie bin.

Well equipped, great location, good outdoor furniture, plenty of guidebooks and maps etc. Recommended

Beautiful comfortable and well equipped cottage nestled right next to a river. We were fortunate to have sunshine all week and sitting in both the front and back garden was bliss. We would also like to note our thanks for the huge amount of extra cleaning, it was very much appreciated as we're the Welsh cakes and chocolate!

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.
