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.

Set in Monmouthshire, between the peaks of the Skirrid (3.5 miles) and the Sugar Loaf (3.5 miles) on the Black Mountains of South Wales, this quirky cottage lies in the peaceful hamlet of Pantygelli with the main accommodation on one level. It’s perfectly placed for couples or families with canine companions who love to be surrounded by nature, wildlife, and beckoning hilltops for bracing walks together. There’s a popular pub with food opposite the property and shops within 3 miles.

 

Enter this charming holiday property, a sympathetic conversion with spacious open-plan living retaining original wooden floorboards, an elegant front porch, and wood panelling. Cook up a storm in the stylish well-equipped kitchen, and catch up on the day around the dining table. Unwind on the cosiest of seating in the living area by the wood burner effect gas fire. Sleep easy in peaceful surroundings; both bedrooms have spacious en-suite shower rooms. Head down a few steps outside the hall where there’s a convenient boot room and WC. Outside, your hounds can recharge after hilltop hikes in the enclosed paddock. And toast marshmallows on the fire pit for an evening of banter under the stars on the long decked balcony.

 

Step out and find numerous country trails and heather-clad moors and hills from your doorstep. Trek the 177-mile Offa’s Dyke Path (9 miles), and look out for skylarks, buzzards, and red grouse. Discover ancient landmarks nearby from Llanthony Abbey and Priory (8.5 miles) and Grosmont Castle (10 miles), to Raglan Castle (13.5 miles). Find independent shops, pubs, and eateries in the food-lovers town of Abergavenny (2miles) where there’s a popular annual food festival. Hop on the Brecon Mountain Railway at Pant station (20 miles) for a spectacular train journey through the dizzy heights of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

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.
