One of three hideawaysenjoying a secluded location within a Herefordshire hillside, an ideal base for families or groups of friends to relax and get back to nature with acres of woodland and local countryside to explore.

If you can pull yourself away from the hot tub and fire pit, there’s lots to keep you entertained in the area. From simply admiring the views to strolling the woodlands and spotting local wildlife, you’ll not be short of an activity or two. There are walks aplenty with Offa’s Dyke Path on the Hatterrall Ridge (10 miles) offering a challenge, or even Hay Bluff (14 miles) and The Black Mountains. To slow it down a little, visit the market town of Hay-on-Wye (12 miles), the ‘Book Town’ where second-hand bookstores are at every turn and there’s even an annual literary festival. For those wanting to get on the water, head to the UK’s fifth longest river, the River Wye (7 miles), where you can hire a canoe or kayak, or simply enjoy a day relaxing or wild swimming on the Warren.

The Hideaways are set into the hillside, where you will get a glimpse above the fields as you approach the driveway. The site is traffic-free, and guests can enjoy the walk up to the hideaways via beech lined pathways that open into a private landscaped space. Small carts are provided for the luggage.

'The Hideaway' is a very well thought out place to come and relax. From the spectacular views to the design of the entire hideaway, this is a place for all to come, visit and enjoy. We were very fortunate to have very hot sunny days to enjoy this hideaway to all its glory. It was very peaceful and captivating. Service was exceptional, our contact KRead moreatie, was a star who welcomed with us with a huge smile and kindness and ensured our needs were catered for. Would highly recommend. 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.
