A homely cottage perfect for four, with a quaint enclosed garden situated in Brecon town centre and close to the River Usk for walks.

This charming cottage, less than a 5 minute walk away from the bustling market town centre of Brecon, is perfect for families looking to explore the natural beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park. With the convenience of the town’s shops, eateries and facilities on your doorstep, you are still only a stone’s throw away from long picturesque walks in the countryside. You can also enjoy peaceful strolls along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, which is only 200 metres away from the property.

 

Clean and welcoming throughout, this property has everything you’ll need for a comfortable stay. Neutral tones create the feeling of light and space, whilst the odd pop of colourful artwork adds warmth and character. With one spacious double bedroom and one twin, families will have plenty of space to relax, and a shower over the bath in the bathroom offers guests the chance to have a relaxing soak at the end of the day. The addition of an enclosed family-friendly garden also provides more space to enjoy on warm summer days and evenings, with a decked area for al fresco dining.

 

Situated on the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons, Brecon is packed with historical interest, from its cathedral to its art deco cinema. If you fancy a challenge, head 7 miles south to South Wales’ highest peak, Pen-y-Fan, which has impressive views from the top. For those who prefer cycling, you can head along the Taff Trail or the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal towpath, which is also a great location for a rural stroll. There is also the opportunity to hire mountain bikes nearby. Other outdoor activities are also available such as paddleboarding and kayaking on Llangorse Lake (6.5 miles). For something a bit different, why not visit the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (20 miles).

Great cottage in a great location. It was well-equipped and comfortable - and the garden was a real bonus - so many birds to watch! It was in walking distance of the supermarkets, restaurants and bars, as well as the canal and river, to go walking

Very well placed to walk to the numerous pubs and restaurants. It is a real home from home and well equipped and comfortable. The gargen is very pleasant and can be quite a sun- trap in the late afternoon.

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.
