Property code: BN336

A pretty and romantic cottage covered in ivy and tucked away in the Black Mountains. This is the perfect spot to enjoy walks, bike rides or just admire the views, ideal for two people to escape the hustle and bustle.

This picturesque barn sits just above the village of Talgarth. You can reach the small farming town in 2 miles with shops, pubs and restaurants. The Talgarth Mill and bakery are a must for those with a sweet tooth or a love of bread. Woodland walks and bike trails surround the property, and you can see grazing sheep and ponies at Rhos Fach Common. The town of Brecon is 11 miles from here, or head to the historic book town of Hay-on-Wye in 10 miles.

Step back in time when entering this property through the low door - the barn is thoughtfully decorated and designed. The galley-style kitchen features all the equipment you will need to cook a delicious meal, and a Belfast sink is a nice touch. The living area is bright and spacious with exposed beams; it also has a wood burner and one basket of wood will be provided for you. Downstairs you will also find the shower room with electric shower. Head up to the mezzanine floor via steep stairs to the bedroom and its white-painted stone walls. There is a king-size bed, as well as a single bed in the corner.

A garden reaches from the side of the property round to the back and has garden furniture and a BBQ with exceptional views across the Black Mountains. The pretty cottage is covered in ivy and the garden is kept very nicely. There is also a separate enclosed area, which is ideal for dogs to roam free. Plenty of parking is available to the front of the property.


Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
