A sympathetically restored cottage set within the grounds of a heritage site and former ironworks complex, perfect for couples wanting to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park.

A beautifully decorated cottage with a restored terrace, this is a lovely getaway for two guests exploring the south-eastern edges of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Set on a working farm which is itself situated within the grounds of the historic Nantyglo Ironworks, this pretty Grade II-listed cottage makes a relaxing couples’ escape. One of three properties on-site, the cottage has a view of the 19th-century roundhouse towers by the gates, and makes a fabulous base for long rural walks or for heading into the Black Mountains to the north. Entering this delightful cottage, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner features some exposed stonework and stone flooring, and has been tastefully updated and decorated to provide a charming living area. The lounge is perfect for snuggling in front of the Smart TV, while the dining area is ideal for a quiet romantic meal for two. The kitchen to the rear has a wide range of useful equipment. The solid wooden staircase curves upstairs to the first floor where you will find the relaxing double bedroom with rural views and wooden flooring. There’s also a stylish shower room. Outside, the small front terrace makes a delightful spot for a morning coffee, and there’s a shared area in the farm grounds with a fire pit. Lying in the Ebbw-Fach valley, the cottage is just a mile from the village of Nantyglo, where you will find a choice of places to eat and drink, as well as a vintage cinema and golf course. Nantyglo was once home to a major ironworks, remnants of which include the farm’s roundhouse towers. Local attractions include The Big Pit National Coal Museum, Blaenavon Ironworks, Festival Park Owl Sanctuary and Cwmtillery Lakes (all within 7 miles). The town of Abergavenny is also nearby (9.5 miles).

Fantastic cottages. We booked all 3 for a family break. The cleanliness was superb, the decor is modern and fresh. The equipment is adequate. The location is perfect for a base for days out. We used the enclosed garden for Henrietta in the evenings with the chiminea. William and Mary don't have a private garden, they share a patio across the drive.Read more There isn't a washing machine which wasn't a problem on this occasion but with young children it's usually a must. Highly recommend these cottages. Hide

A very clean and modern holiday rental. Mary had everything we needed for our stay - everything was in full working order and the owners had thought of everything to make our stay carefree. Major supermarket is just a few minutes drive and its location close to the A465 Heads of the Valleys Road mean its perfectly located to explore the many walks Read moreand sights Wales has to offer.

Location

Map
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.
