  • 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

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.

The farmhouse is set in an elevated, remote position on the hillside, looking out on the mountains north of Brecon. Walks and hikes abound from your door. Head into the Eppynt mountains for a group hike or venture to the pretty village of Beulah for a pint in the local inn, 5 miles away. Try a bike trail around the Crychan Forest, 8.5 miles away, or head north 20 miles to explore the reservoirs around the Elan Valley.

The farmhouse was originally built around 1750 and retains many of its traditional Welsh features, including oak beams and a vast inglenook fireplace. Enter and you’ll find an open-plan living space. Sets of French doors lead out to the patio and garden. Enjoy cooking together in the chef-designed kitchen, complete with a Rangemaster gas oven and an American-style fridge/freezer, then settle down around the dining table for a family dinner. The living space is warm and cosy, with a wood burner for extra heat. When you’re all tired out, five large and luxurious bedrooms await upstairs off the galleried landing. Three of the bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom, and there’s another family bathroom in addition.

Add a competitive edge to the holiday in the games room which has a full-size pool table and TV, or head out to the delights of the garden. Soak in the hot tub in the hillside air or unwind on the terrace, enjoying the mountain views.

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.
