A quirky meeting hall built in 1926, which has been transformed into a delightful holiday home, creating a super base for exploring the stunning Welsh countryside.

Located in the hamlet of Pantygelli almost opposite a popular local gastro pub, this delightful property has all the ingredients for an enjoyable rural break. Walkers on two legs and four will be in their element here with numerous trails to follow from the front door. There are some fascinating ancient monuments and castles to explore nearby, including Llanthony Abbey and Priory (8 miles), Grosmont Castle (9 miles) and the spectacular Raglan Castle (14 miles). Head into the thriving town of Abergavenny (3 miles) and meander around the shops before picking a great place to eat.

Upon entering this unusual property, you’ll arrive in a spacious open-plan living space with original wooden floorboards and wood-panelled walls. Set along one wall is the stylish kitchen with electric cooker and ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer, ensuring you have all you need to rustle up everything from breakfast to dinner. The dining table can seat all your guests, while the comfortable sofa and chairs offer a welcome spot to rest after a busy day of walking and exploring. The wood burner-effect gas fire adds an extra dash of cosiness to this lovely space, ensuring everyone is nice and warm on chillier evenings. The pretty and inviting bedrooms are to be found either side of the main living area. The first is a king-size with an en-suite shower room and the second is a twin, which can be made up as a king-size, if required. This room also has its own en-suite shower room. Accessed from outside the hall, and down a few steps, there is a spacious room with a separate WC and washing machine, which is perfect for storing coats and boots and drying off muddy dogs.

Heading outside through the double doors, soak up the impressive views over to the Skirrid and Black Mountains, as you take a seat on the long, decked veranda. The dogs will love running around the two enclosed paddocks, which are situated beside the house and perfect for exercising them. On chillier evenings get the fire pit going and sit back with a glass of bubbly. There is also ample parking for several cars.

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

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.
