Property code: 75217

Peacefully secluded within an established wildlife lake surrounded by farm woodland. This truly rustic cabin finished with vintage style is simply perfect for couples wanting to retreat from the real world.

You’ll find it hard to steal yourself away from the peace and tranquillity of the lakeside. However, when the time comes you can enjoy a wealth of walking from your front door, the Sugar Loaf is within walking distance and slightly further afield you have access onto the Black mountains. The traditional market town of Crickhowell is just a short drive away with great independent shops, pubs and coffee shops. In the market town of Abergavenny, you will find a Norman Castle, farmers markets and the fabulous Food Festival each September. Brecon, Hay-on-Wye, Cardiff and Hereford are all in easy reach, as well as Wales Industrial Heritage sites in Blaenavon.

Step through the gate and follow the wooden walkway across the edges of the lake where you will see Ty Coot secluded in the distance. This rustic cabin has been constructed with re-claimed materials in order to blend into the natural surroundings. Step inside where you will be pleasantly surprised by the high ceiling, traditional wooden cladded walls and floors that provide a feeling of real warmth. The lounge/kitchen/diner is warmed by a wood burner with an unlimited supply of wood from the farm. Sit back and relax on the vintage sofa and enjoy the views out onto the terrace. The kitchen area is compact and well-equipped with an electric two ring hob, combi oven and fridge. A colourful dresser finishes the space and is brimming with all you would need for preparing a simple supper. For dining a small table can be pulled out with wooden chairs that are neatly tucked away. So, when the day is done and you head to the bedroom, the double bed is furnished with soft bed linen and blankets, and set within a hand-crafted wooden frame. There is an en-suite shower room with shower and WC.

Open the doors and step onto the wooden terrace, enjoying the stunning array of wildlife on your doorstep, with an al fresco meal or drinks on the shaded garden table and chairs. There is parking for one car.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
