A wonderful cottage to get away from it all. Beautiful views of the mountains and plenty of walks from the doorstep. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We were two adults, two teenagers and a little Jack Russell and it was perfect for us.

Lovely views from the garden and kitchen, very quiet location and only a ten minute drive into crickhowell. The road to the property after leaving the main road is very narrow and the house could be better signposted to make it easier to find the property. Overall a lovely spacious house with amazing views and ideal for walkers to explore the BrecoRead moren Beacons. Hide

Cottage was in a lovely location but need to drive if you wanted to shop or go to pub. Beautiful countryside around although farm building was right next door and during our stay the farmers were doing repairs to another property across the way Cottage was generally clean and tidy, think sofa could be replaced and double bed had very soft mattress

This is a well equipped cottage with lovely views from the garden. The owners are very friendly and added some nice touches like kindling & wood for the fire. The local pub does excellent food & beer and is only a short walk away. An exterior picture of the cottage and better directions would have helped though (it's around 0.8 miles from the main Read moreroad if it helps anyone else). Would definitely stay again. Hide

The cottage comfortably accommodates 4; we used both bedrooms and the sofa bed in the snug. There is ample crockery and cutlery, a good sized freezer and fridge, and efficient dishwasher. A lovely large sitting area and dining area makes it feel very spacious. Views are magnificent, and it was very peaceful.

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.
