A magnificent stone Welsh longhouse that sleeps up to five people, this cottage offers total peace and tranquillity with scenic rural surroundings.

Situated on a 220-acre farm in a remote and untamed area of the Brecon Beacons National Park, you will find plenty of walking routes directly onto the Black Mountains and Fforest Fawr Geopark. The village of Sennybridge is 5 miles away with a shop, café and a couple of pubs. Just 8 miles away is the National Showcaves Centre for Wales, which is a fabulous day out for all the family. You can also explore the market towns of Brecon and Llandovery, both of which are 15 miles away or head further afield to Swansea in 27 miles.

This remarkable and spacious cottage has a wide hallway with slate-tiled floor through to a downstairs wet room with a disabled WC. The gorgeous country-style kitchen is well equipped with a large dining area and a solid oak dining table. To the end of the kitchen is a cosy area with comfortable sofas facing the window with views across the surrounding farmland. A living area has a large inglenook fireplace with wood burner and plenty of room for all the family to sit and relax after a long day exploring. Downstairs, there is also a garden room with large French doors that let in the sunshine. Upstairs are three bedrooms: one double, one twin (with one single and one pull out bed) and one single, as well as a family bathroom.

Head through the French doors into a sheltered and enclosed garden where there is garden furniture and a BBQ. Organic farmland surrounds the property with streams, wildlife pools and woodland nearby, and plenty of opportunity to spot red kits, buzzards, deer and the neighbouring Welsh ponies.

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.
