  • A large and hearty farmhouse with panoramic views on the edge of the Brecon Beacons
  • Relax in your own sauna or the outdoor hot tub
  • Set off on adventurous walks straight from your door, into the Eppynt mountain range
Property code: BN162

A luxurious and historic house fit for a party. Bring your family and friends to flit between the pool table, the hot tub and the Welsh hills.

This fantastic farmhouse, in a remote location on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, has ample room to accommodate ten guests. The property is packed with luxurious touches for an extra special stay, including a sauna, hot tub and games room. As you’d expect, the walking opportunities in the area are endless; stride out along the Brecon towpath (17 miles), wander the Crychan Forest (12 miles) or blow away the cobwebs on the common at Libanus (20.5 miles).

The 18th-century property, set high on a hillside overlooking the mountains, has many traditional Welsh features, including beautiful oak beams and a vast inglenook fireplace. Rich tones and dark wood create a warm and inviting atmosphere, enhanced by the roaring wood burner in the centre of the open-plan living space. After a long walk in the surrounding countryside, enjoy a hearty meal around the large dining table, before curling up on the plump sofas and armchairs. It’s easy to while away the hours in the games room, with its full-size pool table, or sipping on a glass of wine on the terrace.

If you want to escape from it all, head to Libanus and enjoy a walk on the grassy common, clad with bracken and gorse; it’s a particularly great place for dog walking. Don’t forget to look up, to admire the red kites soaring overhead. For peace and tranquillity, journey to Crychan Forest. Potter amongst the streams, glades and waterfalls on one of the way-marked trails. There are fabulous views of the Cambrian Mountains and plenty of places for a picnic. The bustling market town of Brecon is well worth a visit. Amble around the independent shops, marvel at the spectacular cathedral and tuck into a great pub lunch at one of the traditional public houses.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The Fron is an amazing property in an equally impressive location. The views are spectacular and the isolated setting allowed our group a wonderful week of relaxation, the tranquillity only ever broken by the occasional boom from the artillery range over the distant hills! We left with many amazing memories including our nights spent in the hot tubRead more, having a BBQ with a view and daily visits from the cheeky local farmers dog! We would definitely recommend and visit again. Hide

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.
