Stay in a lavish castle-style property on your next romantic getaway in the Brecon Beacons. This cottage is well located to explore and enjoy the area.

An astonishing fairy-tale bolthole, perfect for couples looking for a romantic Brecon Beacons getaway in a unique property. Surrounded by landscaped gardens and on the edge of the Black Mountains, this is a superb location for you to enjoy the great outdoors. From here you can access many wonderful walks which take you through Wales’ unique landscapes such as the popular walking route, Offa’s Dyke Path. It passes through the village just 300 metres away.

This stone house looks like a stunning castle straight from a storybook. Decorated and finished throughout with traditional furnishings such as a four-poster bed, oak panelling and oak cabinets. The magnificent octagonal living room has a Knoll sofa, original chandelier and superb open fire, ideal for your cosy evenings in, winding down after a busy day exploring the area. You’ll also love the elegant bathroom, with a fabulous roll-top bath and marble washstand. Outside is a shared garden with a wooden gazebo and BBQ for when you wish to dine alfresco or simply enjoy the sunset.

You’ll stay in the small, historic village of Llanfihangel Crucorney. It has a few amenities such as a shop and a pub which is considered to be the oldest public house in Wales. The Black Mountains and its walks can be accessed directly from the property, though you can travel just 5 miles to the Usk Valley to visit the imposing mountain, The Skirrid, and The National Trust Skirrid walking route. If you’re looking for a selection of shops, restaurants and bars, the market town of Abergavenny is 4.5 miles from the property.

Lovely stay in the tower. Just 1 hr drive away from Pen y fan & Corn du for hiking or the more local, easier hike is Skirrid just 15min drive away. Cosy evenings by the fire and the hosts we lovely. Historic building with lots of interesting design. Would recommend!

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.
