Property code: BN266

A traditional period property with many retained original features, perfect for families and friends seeking a comfortable base from which to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Set in the heart of the village of Llanfrynach and close to the beautiful Church of St Brynach, this spacious cottage is perfectly positioned for exploring the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. There is a myriad of walking opportunities straight from the doorstep with the River Menascin running through the village for riverbank rambles and a lane leading straight into the Brecon Beacons. The Taff Trail Cycle Route passes through the village for traffic-free bike rides across the scenic landscape. The cathedral town of Brecon (4 miles) is a short drive or pleasant walk away where there is a choice of independent shops, galleries and eateries. Discover the town’s military history at The Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh and admire the architecture of the medieval cathedral. Boat hire is available on the canal or why not step onboard a narrowboat for a guided barge trip along the water. Get busy at Llangorse Lake where there are activities available both on and off the water. Hire kayaks, pedalos and sailboats to skim along the water, or sign-up for a water-skiing lesson. Test your head for heights at the climbing centre or fly like a bird on the zip wire trail.

Enjoying a central location in this peaceful village, pull up into the parking space of this traditional stone cottage and step through the front door into the warm and welcoming property. There is plenty of space for provisions in the light and airy kitchen, which is fully equipped with an electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and a freezer. A short flight of internal steps leads to the elegant dining room where all eight guests can sit in comfort to share meals at the polished table. An archway leads through to the inviting sitting room, a generous space with exposed brickwork and neutral decor. Sink into one of the comfortable sofas and relax in front of the wood burner watching a favourite programme on SkyTV or listening to music on the iPod docking station. There is a stylish shower room with WC on this floor. Take the stairs to the first floor where there are four well-appointed bedrooms, all tastefully decorated in soothing tones with bright soft furnishings and sloping ceilings. The family room has a king-size bed and a single bed, making this ideal for those with younger children. There is a further double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a cosy single bedroom, all with ample storage. On the landing is a quiet reading nook, the perfect space to escape for a peaceful moment. Completing the accommodation is the bathroom with corner bath, WC and separate walk-in shower.

Comfortable lounge, just about adequate heating for cooler autumn days but too little when raining, good bedrooms. A little tired decor, and some damp issues evident as holiday proceeded. Outdoor space not well provisioned worn out table and poor terrace surface (crushed rock). Owners instruction book did not properly cover the heater controls.Read more Towel rail fuse was missing why? Hide

The cottage was well equipped with everything one needs when away on holiday. A nice family room to relax in when not out enjoying area, the kitchen is well thought out including the wine as a welcoming gift. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. The internet was good enough for using email and hooking up our Prime Fire Stick. The loRead morecals were all friendly and made you feel like being a tourist was not such an intrusion on their community Hide

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.
