Set within the heart of the pretty village of Grosmont and steeped in history, this cottage is perfect for couples wanting to relax and enjoy the best of the surrounding countryside, castles, and bustling market towns. Located in the heart of the pretty village of Grosmont you will find the newly and lovingly restored Baker’s House. The village is served with a great pub The Angel that offers a varied menu of fresh local produce, a post office with all the essentials and historic landmarks of Grosmont Castle and St Nicholas church right on your doorstep. The Bridge at Kentchurch is another good pub which also serves meals and is within walking distance with a country riverside setting. Grosmont is a fantastic base for exploring the nearby market towns of Abergavenny (11 miles), Monmouth (12 miles), Hay (21.5 miles) and Hereford (18miles), as well as having the Wye Valley in one direction and the Brecon Beacons National Park in the other. Cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the variety of activities this location offers, in view of the Black Mountains, with spectacular routes including the Offa’s Dyke footpath which you can join at Pandy (7 miles) and which will guide you up onto the Hatterrall Ridge (9.5 miles). This area of the Welsh border is peppered with Norman Castles, in particular the famous Three Castle walking trail, a 19 mile circular route taking in Grosmont, along with Skenfrith and White Castles, an absolute must-see.

Steeped in history and once the home of the village baker, the property is well-positioned within the heart of the village.

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.
