It’s ideal for those who want the convenience of a town centre location, with shops and eateries on your doorstep, as well as easy access to the nearby countryside. Surrounded by the Brecon Beacons National Park, guests can explore the natural beauty of the area with leisurely strolls or more challenging hikes in the beautiful scenery. At the end of the day, return to relax in this four-storey property.

Original features and high ceilings add character to this Georgian home, whilst traditional furniture respects the heritage of the building. With steep cottage-style stairs leading up to the first, second and third floors, guests will enjoy the sense of space in this home.

Pen-y-Fan is 6 miles away and is South Wales’ highest peak; after the climb up, walkers are rewarded with amazing views of the whole area. Pen-y-Crug (1.5 miles) is also nearby and is a slightly less strenuous ancient hill fort which affords views of the Black Mountains. Cantref Adventure Farm (3 miles) is a lovely day out for families with its indoor and outdoor play. Alternatively, why not take to the water and enjoy a day of paddleboarding or kayaking on Llangorse Lake (7 miles)?

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!

Beautiful house, so homely and welcoming. In a fantastic location, we really didn?t want to leave and would definitely stay again.

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.
