  • Spacious four-bedroom self-contained wing of an 18th-century manor house
  • Relax in front of the wood burner in the evenings

Property code: BN261

An impressive wing of a period property for families or friends set in 2,000-acres of mature grounds, with walking and cycling through the Irfon Valley straight from the door.

A paradise for walkers and nature lovers, this eye-catching holiday home is set among ancient woodlands and valleys in the Cambrian Hills. The River Irfon flows through the valley, with several spots for wild swimming if you’re feeling adventurous. The property is set in a self-contained private wing of a historic manor house owned by generations of the same family for more than 400 years. Remember to bring your rackets and balls for a game of tennis or your fishing rods to catch brown trout on the lake.

This reverse-level property is designed to make the most of the amazing views across the valley. Three of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, including a generously-sized double. Upstairs, you’ll find a large kitchen/diner which is a brilliant space for socialising and preparing homecooked meals. If you want to eat out instead, there’s a welcoming pub in the village of Beulah about a mile away. The cottage’s lounge, which overlooks the valley and lake in the distance, is an inviting space to unwind. Gather around the large wood burner for cosy evenings in front of the TV. There’s also a snug single bedroom on this floor. Outside, you have a private garden for BBQs and catching some rays. You’re also free to explore the walled garden and water meadow in the grounds surrounding the property.

If you want to get out and about, don’t miss a visit to Llanwrtyd Wells (5.5 miles), the smallest town in Britain. Not only does it have great pubs and restaurants, it’s also known for its unusual sporting events, including the World Alternative Games and bog-snorkelling triathlons. Further afield, the Victorian spa town of Llandrindod Wells (14.5 miles) offers boat rides on the lake, while avid readers will enjoy browsing the bookstores of Hay-on-Wye (29 miles).

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.
