Glamping experience set within rolling countryside with the added benefit of a hot tub to relax in after a day of exploring the area

Leave normal life behind and escape to this fabulous safari tent for a Welsh break. Tucked between the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, fill your days with walks, pub lunches and adventures before bubbling your night away in the hot tub and dining outside your tent. Sleeping six guests over three bedrooms and welcoming a pup, it’s the perfect destination for families and friends that love the great outdoors. One of three safari tents sitting on a family-owned farm beneath the Skirrid mountain, this home has a fantastic open-plan living space for you to enjoy. Ascend steps to the decked terrace where you can sit with a drink on warm evenings before heading inside to settle in. A wood burner warms the kitchen/lounge/diner and doubles up as an oven to use in addition to the single electric hob.

A trio of bedrooms consist of a king-size, a twin, and a double bed in a shed so you can enjoy peaceful nights. Freshen up in the shower room before heading out to explore. There is ample off-road parking and a play area for children. Treat yourself to a night off from the kitchen and make the 5.5-mile journey to Abergavenny where you can dine in the pubs. 11 miles away, Crickhowell has eateries and is a great starting point for a walk.

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.
