Property code: BN345

This charming stone-built holiday cottage makes a lovely holiday base for a family visiting the idyllic town of Hay-on-Wye and is within easy reach of the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park.

Just a short stroll from the cottage will take you to some of Hay-on-Wye’s most popular attractions including Warren Beach on the River Wye where you can enjoy a picnic, or go fishing, canoeing or swimming. The town is famous for its numerous second-hand book and antique shops, and there’s also plenty of pubs and restaurants to sample. Beyond the town, there are numerous walks and cycle trails to follow, including Offa’s Dyke Path, with destinations including Hay Bluff (5 miles), Golden Valley and Llanthony Valley (both 12 miles). Other attractions include the Small Breeds Farm Park and Owl Centre (12.5 miles), Tretower Castle (20 miles) and Llangorse Lake (13 miles). Brecon is also nearby (16 miles).

Although built as recently as the 1980s this delightful cottage is created from the old stone and timbers which characterise the older cottages in the town, giving this property a quaint and appealing appearance. The light and welcoming lounge is an ideal space to relax in, with a Smart TV, DVD and plenty of seating to enjoy a movie or a good book at the end of the day. The bright and stylishly designed kitchen is equipped with a range of useful appliances including a double oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dining table. There’s also a ground-floor WC and a utility room with a fridge and freezer. Heading upstairs you will find two cosy and attractively decorated double bedrooms and a family bathroom complete with a bath, shower and WC. The final flight of stairs leads you up to a large twin bedroom with sloping ceilings and a separate WC.

Stepping outside, the private and enclosed garden provides a lovely spot to sit in the sunshine and enjoy a BBQ, with enough space for children to play. Storage is available for mountain bikes or canoes, and there’s parking for one car outside the cottage.

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.
