Offering wonderful self-catering family accommodation, this spacious and friendly Grade II-listed Georgian townhouse is ideally located close to the heart of the historic market town of Brecon.

The property is set just a short walk from the centre of Brecon, with a wide range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, many of them within half a mile. Nearby attractions include the cathedral, the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh, Theatre Brycheiniog and the Canal Basin where you can join a boat cruise or enjoy a pleasant walk along the towpath of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. There are plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling, canoeing, pony trekking and fishing. Landmarks and attractions away from the town include Llangorse Lake (6.5 miles), Talgarth Mill (9 miles), Pen y Fan (6.5 miles), Tretower Castle (11.5 miles) and the Storey Arms Activity Centre (8.5 miles).


At the front of the house is the classic and ornately furnished dining room with ornamental fireplace which is an ideal space for enjoying a special occasion. The bright and spacious kitchen is equipped with a range of appliances including an electric oven, hob, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, coffee machine and a fridge/freezer. A steep flight of cottage-style stairs leads up to the first floor where you will find the light and cosy lounge with ornamental fireplace. This is a delightful space to relax in at the end of the day, where you can curl up on the sofa with a good book or watch a movie on the TV/DVD. The stylish bathroom is also on the first floor, with a bath, separate shower and WC. A second flight of steep cottage-style stairs leads you up to the second floor which is home to two attractive and lightly decorated bedrooms, both with king-size beds. The final flight of stairs leads directly into the large attic room with no door. This has been turned into a fabulous second sitting room which offers views across the Brecon rooftops and towards the Beacons.


The door from the kitchen leads out into a small but charming enclosed courtyard with patio furniture and one step down. Parking can be found in the nearby long-stay car park.

Fantastic townhouse, great location, decoration. Really comfortable, you do have to walk up and the stairs, but it is a town house. Can?t wait to go back!

The cottage was very well equipped and an excellent location. Nice extras like a foods cupboard with lots of basics and a large supply of coffee.

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.
