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.

Retreat to this delightful, one-bedroom cottage near Pengenffordd, in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Enjoy the romance of this exquisite former barn, which sleeps up to three guests and captures views out towards the Black Mountains. Take two happy hounds with you to enjoy long walks and to run free in the enclosed exercise area close to home. Follow footpaths, visit local towns and villages or simply soak up the serenity of the setting.

Make your way into this gorgeous stone holiday home, which has been beautifully converted to create an enchanting hideaway. Find the enticing lounge/diner, with its white-painted, stone walls, wooden floor and beams, is very much the heart of this magical Welsh country property. Fire up the wood burner then bask in its glow as you watch the TV, which has Freesat, or settle down in front of a DVD. Cook up tasty treats in the charming, galley-style kitchen, with its electric cooker, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, then enjoy them at the table or out in the garden. Discover the shower room, which has an electric shower, is also on the ground floor. Climb up to the mezzanine level above the lounge to find a bedroom, with both a king-size bed and a single bed. On warm mornings, enjoy breakfast in the garden and on balmy evenings, fire up the BBQ and dine against the beautiful, mountainous backdrop.

Walk 2 miles into Talgarth to browse in its shops, book a table in one of its restaurants or to visit its famous mill and bakery. Head a further 10 miles into Hay-on-Wye, famous for its annual literary festival, for more independent outlets, including numerous bookshops. Follow woodland walks and cycle trails from the cottage or drive to Llangorse Lake, 4 miles away, for fishing and water sports.

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.
