Wonderful lodge on the banks of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, boasting instantly welcoming decor, endless walks from its doorstep and plenty of welcoming country pubs nearby.

Escape to the serene landscape of the Usk Valley and stay in this cosy property on the slopes of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, a destination that’s ideal for couples, families and small groups. Whether you are tempted by the area’s gastronomic reputation, the abundance of scenic walks or the pretty market towns scattered near and far, you’ll find an activity to suit you. Return to relax in style on your private terrace with a glass of wine, or take the 0.5-mile stroll to the nearby pub for a slap-up meal to round off your day.


Accessed via some stone steps and surrounded by beautiful, shared gardens which offer views of the countryside beyond, your comfortable single-storey retreat is a delightful home away from home. Settle down for film nights in the lounge, or plan a laid-back evening of delicious food and board games around the table, using the handy country cottage-style kitchen for whipping up tasty treats. Two identical bedrooms provide a welcome sanctuary after a busy day, both featuring double beds and sharing a contemporary shower room. Outside, the terrace leads to the sauna, gardens and a small patch of woodland that’s often occupied by resident wandering pheasants, and you’ll be able to access a footpath leading to the mountain from your doorstep. Shared laundry facilities are also available on-site.


Explore on foot, by bike or even by the medium of your taste buds thanks to the myriad of gastropubs and restaurants located within 9 miles of the property. Crickhowell 1.5 miles away is a market town brimming with potential for interesting day trips thanks to the motte and bailey castle, independent shops and eateries. Further afield, Abergavenny is 5 miles away and boasts a popular annual food festival as well as a castle and museum to tempt budding historians and foodies alike.

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

Nice, quiet location with everything you need for a short break. Great location to explore the Brecon Beacons and very close to sugar loaf and Crickhowell.


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.
