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.

Sitting in the bustling literary town of Hay-on-Wye, this welcoming cottage boasts character and charm and is perfect for families looking to explore the Brecon Beacons. Ideally located to visit the local restaurants, bookshops and well-trodden trails such as the Offa’s Dyke Path and Wye Valley Walk, you don’t have to hop in the car to enjoy days out and about.

Though it was built in the 1980s, this cottage was constructed using the old stone and timbers which characterise the older cottages in town, creating a traditional feel throughout. Make your way into the light lounge where you can choose your seat and put your feet up after days spent out and about. Pop the kettle on or cook up a storm in the beautiful, spacious kitchen where there is plenty of space to store delicious local groceries and prepare a feast. Serve up at the table or head outside to dine alfresco and enjoy the blossoming flora and fresh air; for an easy summer meal, fire up the BBQ whilst children play in the garden. Leave muddy boots in the ground-floor utility room before heading upstairs to freshen up in the family bathroom where you can soak in the tub or take a shower. Also on the first floor are two double bedrooms whilst the twin room, with sloping ceilings, can be reached by climbing a further flight of stairs.

For a fun, family day out, travel 12 miles to the Small Breeds Farm Park and Owl Centre or 13 miles to Llangorse Lake (the largest natural lake in South Wales), where you can find activity centres and take a stroll. Closer to home, The Warren, where you can find a park and shingle beach, lies less than a mile from your door and is a great picnic spot.

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.
