Really well equipped cottage in a great location in the centre of Brecon and within walking distance of plenty of good places to eat. Furniture etc is of high quality (all Cotswold and new) and bedding etc lovely quality again. Clearly the owner has spared no expense in renovating this place. Only minor points were no washing machine which may bothRead moreer some but not us. Would recommend the Clarence for dog friendly and good food and the Thai takeaway was excellent albeit a bit pricey. Hide

Really well situated property in the heart of Brecon. Close to shops and restaurants and easy to get onto the Beacons. The property itself is stylish, clean and a comfortable size. One of the nicest houses Ive stayed in. Some good modern features and has everything you need for a homely stay.

The cottage is tastefully decorated. The blinds and curtains are lovely. Very well equipped and modern, yet it retains so much original character, especially the beautiful sash windows! Let's hope they will always remain. The two bedrooms are a good size and there is the added bonus of a second toilet/sink.

This was the most delightful holiday cottage we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in quite a few).

The cottage is absolutely perfect! The owners have thought of everything. Its based in the centre of Brecon town and its great access to the Brecon Beacons. If you like a long walk, you can walk directly to the top of Pen y Fan and back. I cannot recommend this place enough!

Our stay was fantastic - The Stables has been renovated and furnsihed to a really high standard. The only reason I deducted 2 stars from a possible 100% was due to the parking arrangements - which involved requesting a neighbour move his car each time we returned home to access the drive. Getting out without disturbing him was doable in a few tightRead more turns, but entering same way was impossible. The cottage may not have a view but is ideal for accessing the Brecons, pubs, shops and take-aways . Hide

Location

Map
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.
