Ideal for small families, this character cottage is perfectly located for adventures across the countryside surrounding Powys and Monmouthshire, welcoming guests with a crackling fire and soothing home comforts.

Set amongst the spectacular wilderness of the Brecon Beacons National Park within easy reach of the River Usk and the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal, this Victorian cottage is an idyllic base for exploring. Ideally placed in rural splendour yet close to the A40, you can venture near and far to take in your majestic surroundings at leisure. Cast your line to catch salmon and brown trout on the Usk, or hop on your bike and scale the rolling hills and scenic trails from a new perspective. Talybont-on-Usk is 2 miles away, where you can visit the reservoir and sample locally-brewed beer at one of the welcoming pubs.

Escape the elements as you step inside the cosy lounge, kicking off your boots and settling down on the sofas with a glass of wine. An open fire warms the room throughout, and you’ll be kept entertained by the selection of DVDs, games and books. The bijou-style kitchen/diner has everything you need to whip up light snacks or more elaborate suppers, best enjoyed around the table. Next, the downstairs shower room and a delightful twin offer a quiet sanctuary after the day’s adventures, and there are two further bedrooms on the first floor - choose from a snug twin or an elegant double.You’ll find an array of DVDs, games and books in a small attic room accessed by an additional steep flight of stairs.

Take your meals outside for dinner with a view, relaxing on the patio with a few drinks. Fire up the BBQ and sizzle up something special whilst the children play on the lawn, or sip your morning coffee and savour the peace and quiet. There’s ample parking for two cars, and a plethora of scenic walks leading from your doorstep. On the nights you don’t feel like cooking, the nearest pub is a short 1.5-mile drive away, and you can pick up a few essentials at a small shop and post office just 1 mile away.

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.
