This stylish cottage is peacefully tucked away from the vibrant market town of Crickhowell, beautifully finished with spacious accommodation that is well suited to families wanting to enjoy the National Park.

Crickhowell is a picturesque town nestling in the beautiful Usk Valley and lying to the south of the Black Mountains, the eastern range of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The town offers a good mix of shops to include a baker and butcher where you can take advantage of the local produce along with restaurants and pubs. For walkers, you can leave the car behind with routes that will guide you into the park onto some of the peaks to include Table Mountain. There are activity centres that offer kayaking, climbing, mountain biking and horse riding throughout the area. For the more easy-going guests, there are some lovely market towns such as Hay-on-Wye (known as the town of books), Abergavenny and Brecon, all within easy reach.

Peacefully tucked away just off the bustling high street, step inside to a small lobby where you can remove your boots after a day exploring the national park. From the lobby, you will access the lounge; here you can relax in front of the wood burner and catch up with friend, with two large sofas and a traditional rocking chair placed by the fire. A few steps will take you through to the dining area, a perfect space for entertaining with a large table with chairs and a wooden bench. For those wanting to enjoy courtyard views, you can snuggle into the armchair with a good book.

Amazing cottage, scrupulously clean, well equipped and very central. Crickhowell is a lovely little town with a friendly vibe, lots of wonderful walks, pubs and restaurants. It is very dog friendly everywhere. We loved the cottage and its position and will return soon

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.
