Lovely apartment in beautiful area with lots to do and see and ideal for walking. However it didn't have an information book so we had to Google recycling, local information etc and had no safety information. There was only 2 sets of crockery which was inconvenient, more baking equipment would have made cooking easier. The cafe was also closed all Read moreweek so we didn't get the benefit of that or to meet the hosts. Overall we were slightly disappointed in our stay Hide

If anybody is looking at the photos and is slightly concerned that headroom might be restricted by the eaves, we did not find this s problem. The apartment is more spacious that the photos allow.

Excellent friendly and helpful hosts. The cottage is close to many attractions and walks of varying difficulty. Easy walks in Abergavenny town and the Keepers Pond nearby are worth exploring. The food, cakes and icecream in the tearoom downstairs are very tasty.

Second time staying at the Skirrid Hideaway, and it was as superb as ever. It really is a unique experience staying here, with the brilliant Copper Kettle Cafe right below the accommodation, and the glorious Welsh countryside surrounding quite unsurpassable. The standard of the facilities is unbeatable. The property's owners and hosts, Tracy & MikeRead more, are patently two pf the nicest people you could wish to meet. Absolutely nothing to find fault with. Recommended without hesitation. Hide

The Skirrid Hideaway has been finished to a very high standard, and cleverly maximises the space above what is one of the cleanest, and best tearooms I've been in - fantastic full Welsh breakfast.

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.
