Set out for an unforgettable holiday in the Brecon Beacons at this warm and welcoming holiday cottage. It’s an enchanting retreat for a family escape or to get away with good friends.

Set in the centre of Brecon town, this captivating cottage is near pubs, shops and other amenities half a mile away. The River Honddu and Brecon Cathedral can be seen from the cottage while the River Usk is down the road and a picturesque setting for a riverside stroll. Art galleries and museums adorn the streets, while the Brecon Canal Basin begins just south of town – hire a canal boat for a lazy day trip on the water. The real reason many visit beautiful Brecon is to climb the highest peak in South Wales, Pen y Fan (6 miles) offering unbeatable views of this renowned national park.

Inside, one exposed stone wall contrasts with soothing tones in the sitting room, creating a relaxed space to unwind after busy days out and about in the Brecon Beacons. Wake up for the day over the morning news in this tranquil lounge space or settle in for a film night. Play a round of pool at the downstairs pool table, the ideal place for friends to enjoy socialising into the evening. The light and bright kitchen is complete with an electric oven and gas hob, a microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine and dishwasher. There’s a cooking area for putting together a meal or you could take a seat at the table and chairs while you plan your day-to-day adventures. A downstairs closet with WC completes the ground floor. Upstairs, there is a bathroom with a shower over the bath. When everyone is ready to retire for the night, there’s a choice of two contemporary, attractive bedrooms – one king-size and one super-king-size – both with skylights so on a clear evening you can enjoy the night’s sky. The super-king-size bed can be made into two full-size single beds on request.

Outside, an enclosed courtyard provides a wonderful setting for a morning breath of fresh air or al fresco lunch. The outdoor table and chairs can be found in the barn, which is lockable so you can safely store away bikes if you’re planning any cycling trips through this scenic region. There is also parking available for one car.

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.
