A fabulous little place, very clean, comfortable and well equipped with charming decor. Nestled in a quiet location, but close enough to all the amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thank the hosts for being so helpful and all the little touches that make the stay very special. We would highly recommend a stay at the Corn Store.

We loved our stay at the Corn Store. Mark (the owner) was really helpful throughout, with advice on local walks and activities. The cottage itself was a perfect size for the two of us and was spotlessly clean, with very up to date amenities including fast wifi, 2 TV's, excellent cooker and fridge freezer. We cooked in the cottage mostly which was vRead moreery easy with all the cooking equipment provided. The bed was incredibly comfortable, as was the bath, perfect after some long hikes in the beautiful Brecon Beacon national park. Hide

We?ve had a great time at The Corn Store. Everything was immaculate when we arrived, multiple safety measures were in place to ensure social distancing. Fireplace was a great addition too! For those who want to use this location to work remotely - wifi speeds were around 30mbps (even outside), which is more than enough for most work, zoom calls etcRead more. Highly recommended as a nice getaway! Hide

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.
