Get back to basics with a romantic trip for two, staying in this delightful cottage on the edge of bustling Talgarth. Set out across one level, this pretty bungalow is well-equipped for whatever your heart desires in the Brecon Beacons National Park, be it long days of hiking and cycling, outdoor activities and wild water sports or, perhaps, just a relaxing wander around some of the area’s pretty market towns including Brecon and Hay-on-Wye.

Lovingly presented with warm interiors and furnishings, you’ll feel instantly at home as you step over the threshold into this pretty cottage. A compact and cosy living space presents a sociable spot for spending time together, with well-equipped kitchen, dining space and lounge all together. Cushy sofas provide the perfect spot for putting your feet up on an evening, switch on the TV and lose yourself in a gripping drama. This bright room is flooded with light thanks to a set of French doors which lead out onto a private lawn and patio space, furnished for al fresco summer nights. Completing the property is an inviting bedroom with a snug bed and a family bathroom with a stand-alone roll-top bath, perfect for soak at the end of the day.

Walk half a mile into the centre of Talgarth for all the local amenities including shops, eateries and pubs, or head to Brecon (9 miles) or Hay-on-Wye (7.5 miles), both promising charming days out. For adrenaline junkies, the nearby Llangorse Activity Centre (6 miles) can facilitate activities such as climbing, water sports and pony trekking, or you can stay closer to home with a trip to the beautiful Pwll y Wrach Nature Reserve (1.5 miles) with its ancient woodlands and cascading waterfall.

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.
