Steeped in history and perfect for entertaining, this property promises a Brecon Beacons break that will live long in the memory of all who come. Located just outside the literature-lover’s town of Hay-on-Wye, this stunning property, which sleeps ten guests across five bedrooms, offers the perfect base for exploring all of the many adventures that this National Park has to offer. And, on returning home at the end of each busy day, provides an ever-comfortable holiday home with cushy beds, inviting wood burners and walled gardens ready to be enjoyed by children and dogs alike. Featuring stunning original features throughout, this converted medieval property proudly presents rooms with vaulted ceilings, flagstone flooring and original beams. Whilst updated to provide contemporary amenities for your stay, the decor reflects this traditional style and offers an instantly welcoming environment in which to unwind. Invite guests over to make use of the impressive dining room which seats 30, always retiring to the cosy lounge for an after-dinner tipple by the wood burner. Or, when blessed with sunshine and warmth, explore the private garden with BBQ, outdoor furniture and glorious landscapes. Venture out for walks right from your doorstep or wander to the nearest town, Hay-on-Wye, just 1.5 miles away. With the River Wye running through, this fascinating town boasts an annual book festival and an impressive selection of bookshops. Keen fishermen will no doubt while away a day or two on the banks of this river or the River Usk 15 miles away. The location of this river also gives way to the bustling town of Brecon (15.5 miles) which is certainly worth a visit. Whilst many flock to the area to explore the expanse of the Black Mountain Range, we recommend you make full use of this fantastic Dark Sky Reserve Status area and conserve your energy for a midnight hike under the stars.

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

Please note there is a refundable £350 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The Medieval Barn was full of character and the main hall beautiful. It was perfect for a family gathering with 5 double bathrooms and 4 lovely bathrooms. Sitting round the log fire with a G and T was very relaxing. Enormous dining table great for family meals and board games! The sunny, sheltered garden was stunning. Great location within walking Read moredistance of Hay. Hide

We were met on arrival by Will the caretaker who was very helpful showing us around. Milk, tea, coffee and biscuits were provided for us which was lovely. There was plenty of room for the 10 of us. All the bedrooms were nicely furnished and the kitchen was well equipped. The main lounge area was stunning with huge arched oak timbers and a large dinRead moreing table. The property was in a great location being about a 20 minute walk from Hay on Wye. We would definitely stay there again. Hide

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.
