A spacious cottage set on the edge of the Brecon Beacons and close to the popular towns of Crickhowell and Abergavenny. Nearby to a sweet country pub, making this a great retreat any time of year.

Make yourselves at home in this exquisite cottage at Glangrwyney, just 1.5 miles from Crickhowell. Sleeping up to four guests, and also welcoming a pair of contented canines, the two-bedroom holiday home could be ideal for a small family or two couples. Soak up the sunshine in the pretty cottage garden which features a stream, or unwind in the cosy glow of the wood burner inside the charming house. Explore the beautiful Brecon Beacons; walk by the famous River Usk and plan days and meals out in Abergavenny, which is celebrated for its food. Leave your outerwear in the boot room and make your way into the kitchen. With everything you need to help you prepare tasty holiday meals, and a breakfast bar at which to perch with a cup of coffee, this bright space also has a dining table and conservatory area, as well as doors on to the garden. Follow the hall and step down into the lounge, where you can watch the Smart TV as the wood burner crackles. Take the stairs up to the floor above to find a twin bedroom, plus a room with a king-size four-poster bed and an en-suite shower room. A family bathroom can also be found at this level. Relax outside as often as possible; watch children play on the lawn and look for wildlife in the open stream, and find parking for four cars at the cottage. Discover lots of walks and cycle rides from the house. Drive 13 miles to reach Talybont Reservoir, where you can fish and complete a 6-mile walk beside the water. Spend time at the lake at Llangorse too, 11.5 miles away, where you can canoe, kayak and hire rowing boats.

Location

Map
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.
