Property code: 83076

This spacious three-bedroom accommodation with warming wood burner and far reaching views across to Pen y Fan is just perfect for exploring the mountains, lakes, canals, places of historic interest and vibrant market towns.

Immerse yourselves in the dramatic rural landscape of the Brecon Beacons National Park with a stay in this charming country cottage. Enjoy a morning coffee on the patio, whilst planning the day’s big adventure, and soak up the breathtaking view of Pen y Fan overlooking the rolling green hills. Whether you’re keen walkers, cyclists, climbers or canoeists, the area is packed with opportunities for you. Despite its rural location, shops and eateries can be found in the small village of Sennybridge or the larger market town of Brecon, which are both 6 miles away. Part of a larger house on a working farm, this delightful self-contained accommodation is perfect for friends or families. Bright and airy throughout, pops of colour and pattern add character to this welcoming home. After leaving your muddy shoes in the hall, head into the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where you can cook, dine and relax together in front of the roaring wood burner. Upstairs, there are three spacious double bedrooms, all of which have far-reaching views. There is one bathroom and an en-suite. The best thing about this property has got to be the outside space. You can dine alfresco (if the weather permits) against a backdrop of the unbridled Welsh countryside. There are a wealth of walking and cycling trails from your door, with even more routes available if you’re willing to travel further afield. Pen y Fan, the national park’s highest peak, is 7.5 miles away and offers stunning panoramic views of the area. For something a little different, head 16 miles to the National Showcaves Centre for Wales and enjoy an underground adventure. Brecon has lots to offer visitors, including its attractive canal, an annual Jazz Festival and its beautiful cathedral. Venturing further afield, you can visit other attractive towns such as Hay-on-Wye, home of the famous Hay Festival.

We had an amazing holiday. The view from the cottage is breathtaking. I loved watching the sheep from the window. Sally was so kind and took us to the farm. My son loved visiting the farm and feeding little lambs. He would love to go back there again. Highly recommended for families with kids. Agnes

We had such a lovely time. The house is spacious, warm and comfortable with everything you need for a stay. We took all our own food, and managed very well with all the kitchen equipment. There are many lovely walks close by, as well adventure activities.

Lovingly presented Cottage in the heart of the Welsh countryside. Perfect for our family of four. Lots of walks and activities not too far away. The Cottage was memorable for the little touches that made us so comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely recommend.

Fantastic location for walkers. Just a 10 minute drive to Brecon town, and within an easy drive of superb walks. The owners could not have been more helpful or friendly. The cottage has everything you need, and if the weather is on your side, then sitting in the garden admiring the view is time well spent. We would recommend this cottage, and wouldRead more happily stay again. Hide

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.
