Sitting in a Dark Skies Reserve close to quaint waterside towns and beautiful landmarks, escape to this pretty dwelling with family, friends and your dog. Perfectly located for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park, its wood burner, open fire and bath make this bolthole a great place to unwind, cosy up, and soak the day away after hours in the great outdoors.

Step inside the flagstone hallway and through to the bright, spacious kitchen. Light and airy, the kitchen has a sleek yet characterful interior and is warmed by the wood burner which keeps the chill at bay. Sit down for a cup of tea at the breakfast bar or head into the lounge where a second traditional fireplace houses an open fire. If the sun is shining, enjoy some peace and quiet in the conservatory, home to two telescopes for stargazing, or make your way through the French doors and relax in the garden. The garden will keep guests of all ages entertained, a trampoline is great for little ones, and the patio is perfect for al fresco meals and cold tipples. When the evenings are cold, the dining table comfortably seats all guests so you can enjoy a sociable dinner before heading up to bed.

We stayed for a week at Tower House but wish we could have stayed longer as it is a beautiful house and felt so welcoming. It is in a great position for exploring the Brecon Beacons and we have walked in some absolutely stunning countryside. All local amenities are within a fairly short drive. We have stayed in some excellent cottages but this is dRead moreefinitely one of the best. Hide

The cottage is extremely cosy, clean and spacious. We particularly enjoyed spending the evenings in the conservatory to watch the beautiful sunset, as well as in the the large kitchen. The cottage has everything you need and more, and is well stocked with board games and garden games. Vivien provided detailed information on the cottage and surroundRead moreing areas prior to our visit, and was very lovely and kind. Overall we loved our stay there and would've loved to have stayed a little longer! 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.
