Property code: BN275

This beautiful property is self-contained wing of a large Grade I listed house situated on a 2000-acre working rural estate, perfect for a family or friends’ get together in a fabulous part of Wales

Let the good times roll at this spacious cottage set on a vast country estate 6 miles from Brecon. The area is a walker’s paradise, and there’s plenty to do on the estate itself. Play tennis on the all-weather court, cast your fly-fishing rod (for a fee) or wander among the blooms of the old Victorian rose gardens. You can also buy fresh organic vegetables grown on the estate. Sleeping up to 14 guests, the property is a fabulous base for a large family celebration or friends’ reunion.

Inside, this private wing is a perfect blend of old and new, with exposed beams contrasted by warm lighting and contemporary touches. It’s also eco-friendly as it runs on biomass central heating. In the large kitchen/diner, while washing up you can gaze out into the garden at the Belfast sink after rustling up a hearty meal in this pretty space. Take the curved staircase up to the lounge, which has fantastic views of the River Usk. There are two bedrooms on this level, as well as two bathrooms, so queues can be avoided. The four remaining bedrooms, plus another two bathrooms, are on the second floor. On warm summer evenings, tuck into a BBQ feast in the pretty courtyard.

In Brecon, go for a leisurely stroll along the canal towpath or step up the pace on the challenging Taff Trail, which stretches 55 miles along the River Taff to Cardiff. Young ones can enjoy animal encounters and outdoor escapades at the Cantref Adventure Farm (8.5 miles), while the thrill-seekers in your group can go rock climbing at Llangorse Multi Activity Centre (13 miles). For slightly gentler pursuits, enjoy a scenic bike ride through the Brecon Beacons National Park.

We had a wonderful break, the owners and people who lived on the Estate were so friendly and welcoming. The Farm Shop was fabulous and used daily. The river swimming was an added bonus along with the vast estate walks for exploring. Thank you to all for your great hospitality, our family loved every day of the holiday. We will absolutely be back.

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.
