  • Converted 17th-century barn nestled in the idyllic Welsh countryside
  • Spacious conservatory with glorious far-reaching mountain views
  • Large family garden perfect for outdoor living
Property code: BN214

Situated in a traditional courtyard setting, this lovingly restored 17th-century barn boasts charming mountain views. Perfect for families who love the great outdoors.

Explore the vast mountainous landscape of the Brecon Beacons right from the front door of this handsome converted stone barn. It’s less than 5 miles from Pen y Fan, the highest peak in South Wales, which you can hike up for incredible views from the top. The cottage is ideal for families with children as a shared games room has table tennis, snooker, pool, board games and a PlayStation 3.


Inside the barn, exposed wooden beams and stonework give the cottage a homely, rustic feel throughout. Snacks and morning coffee can be enjoyed at the kitchen breakfast bar but, for more substantial meals and social occasions with all the family, the spacious conservatory provides the perfect spot. Patio doors lead out to the garden from this room, so you can take your glass of wine outside to drink in the beautiful views that surround the property. On chilly evenings, warm up by the wood burner-effect electric fire in the lounge before heading upstairs to bed. You’ll find a super-king-size bedroom, twin bedroom and a family bathroom on the first floor, all with cottage-style sloping ceilings.


Discover the amazing wilderness of the Brecon Beacons National Park by land or on water. Whether you’re into mountain biking, horse riding, kayaking or white-water rafting, active families definitely won’t be short of options here. The pretty market town of Brecon is 6 miles from the property. Unique shops and tearooms line narrow streets where you can sit and watch life on the canal drift by. Elsewhere, walk behind cascading waterfalls and come face-to-face with life-size dinosaurs at the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (15 miles).

A very warm and friendly welcome from the owners. Lovely cosy cottage. Ideal for walking with walks straight from the cottage, including Pen-y-Fan.

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.
