Property code: BN324

Inviting guests to escape their daily responsibilities, this superb farmhouse near Abergavenny is all about location, relaxation and exploration.

Sleeping up to six guests, this three-bedroom property is only 1 mile from the foodie hub of Abergavenny. The perfect retreat for those looking to enjoy both outdoor pursuits and the up-and-coming status of this modern town, it ideally balances leisure and play. Pick up one of the many walks from your doorstep; you can even have a go at a conquering the mighty Sugar Loaf Mountain if you feel up to it! Dominating the skyline, it’s a little more of a challenge but rewards summiteers with jaw-dropping views at the top!


Dust off paws and shoes in the spacious cloakroom just outside the back door before heading inside. Immediately inviting, the first place to visit is the kitchen. With a quarry-tile stone floor, radiant AGA, plenty of home comforts and large dining table as its centrepiece, this is very much a family space and great for relaxing throughout the day. Switch on the wall-mounted TV and settle into one of the sofas with a brew as you plan your Brecon adventures. For post-walk relaxation, you can lap up the ambience in the property’s parlour room, a beautiful time-trap with a ancient arched oak doorway, stone fireplace with an enormous stone lintel and great oak beams. Sink into one of the sumptuous sofas that tastefully juxtapose the period etchings and pop the TV on (complete with Freeview). For extra choice, there is also a second fully equipped sitting room with lots of games and, if you’re feeling particularly creative, a writing room too. When bedtime rolls around, you will find the three bedrooms located up the stone stairs – steep and uneven in true cottage fashion – which consist of a king, a double and a twin.


When the sun is shining, the property’s large garden will be a real favourite. Accessed via the backdoor, its enclosed space lends a reassuring sense of security as children and dogs play outside, while its incredible views are a real treat whatever the weather.


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

Location stunning, cottage beautiful. Owners had cleaned and provided for covid guidelines. Can't wait to go back.

The cottage is ideally located in a beautiful rural spot yet only about a mile to Abergavenny so truly the best of both worlds. Beautifully clean on arrival with a really cozy farmhouse kitchen (with electric Aga) which we all enjoyed enormously including Megan our Welsh Springer Spaniel. We didn't actually use the lounge or TV room at all - thereRead more was no need! Nice enclosed gardens with super views at the back. Really friendly, helpful owners. Hide

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.
