Lovingly decorated barn conversion boasting home comforts for a family of four in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, with further properties hosting additional guests on this working sheep farm.

With its Dark Skies Reserve status, varied landscapes and unforgettable walking and hiking routes, the Brecon Beacons National Park boasts everything you need for a stay in rural Wales. Head out and find endless walks from the doorstep, summiting Pen y Fan (14 miles) or travelling to the region’s Black Mountain range (30 miles). Fishermen will rejoice with fishing on the River Crai available on the estate and the Usk Reservoir (7 miles) not far for salmon and brown trout fishing, whilst younger guests will enjoy tending to the sheep on the owner’s farm or taking a trip to the nearby National Showcaves Centre for Wales (8.5 miles).

Reached via some steps, head inside this stylishly converted 200-year-old stone barn to find plenty of contemporary and original features, including exposed stone walls alongside modern and homely furniture. On arrival, step into the spacious kitchen where electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine offer everything you need to make yourselves at home. This room opens out into an open-plan living and dining room, where a table set for four is the perfect place to enjoy meals together. The cosy lounge boasts comfortable seating, TV/DVD, CD player, a selection of books and games for you to enjoy together. Continue onto the first floor to find two bedrooms, both with stunning views of the surrounding countryside and sloping ceilings. A spacious master bedroom has an en-suite with shower and WC, whilst across the hall, the twin bedroom has an en-suite with shower over bath and WC. Both bathrooms benefit from heated towel rails and the bedrooms are well-equipped with handy storage and antique-style furniture.

You will find a small patio area to the side of the property, where an outdoor dining set and BBQ offer a great spot for an al fresco evening outdoors. Be sure to make use of the shed to store bikes and sports equipment, and feel free to roam the surrounding farmland.

A beautiful and well appointed cottage/barn - remote with stunning views but with the benefit of two other lets and the owners on site. Very friendly hosts. Well appointed kitchen and cozy dinner area - a log burner in the lounge would make it totally perfect! Perfect location for Pen-y-Fan, waterfall walk and the Beacons in general.

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.
