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

Enjoy life’s simple pleasures – good food, the great outdoors and the company of loved ones – with a stay at this working sheep farm just outside Abergavenny. Sleeping up to six guests, this three-bedroom property is perfectly placed for families or friends to explore the Black Mountains area, and stands in the shadow of the mighty Sugar Loaf Mountain. If you’re up for the challenge, climb to the summit for amazing panoramic views.

The cottage is full of character and skilfully blends modern home comforts with original features including exposed beams, stone fireplaces and an ancient arched oak doorway. The kitchen is a wonderful social space for bringing the family together when you’re not out and about exploring. Catch up with the news on the TV over breakfast or gather around the large dining table for a roast dinner with all the trimmings cooked in the Aga-style oven. During your downtime, put your feet up in the parlour room, get creative in the writing room or play games in the sitting room. The three bedrooms are up cottage-style stone stairs that are steep and uneven in places. The garden, enclosed by a fence, is great for the kids and dogs to play outside.

The property is only a mile from Abergavenny, famous for its annual food festival and array of restaurants and coffee shops. At nearby Sugar Loaf Vineyard, also a mile away, the wine buffs in your party can take a tour of the estate and sample the local vintage. Families can enjoy a hands-on experience with a difference at the Big Pit National Coal Museum (8 miles). Travel deep underground to find out what life was like as a coal miner there.

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

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.
