Offering stunning panoramic views over the Brecon Beacons and towards the Malvern Hills and the Black Mountains, this light and spacious property makes a relaxing family holiday home.

Just beyond the property, there’s some open common land with wild grazing ponies and the beautiful Brechfa Pool – a nature reserve with an abundance of waterfowl and rare wetland plants (1 mile). Set on the outskirts of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this is a great base for a range of activities including climbing, hiking, horse-riding, cycling and canoeing, with local attractions including Talgarth Mill (4.5 miles), Pwll-y-Wrach Woods (5.5 miles) and Llangorse Lake (7.5 miles). The popular and historic market town of Brecon (8 miles) lies on the banks of the Rivers Usk and Honddu and has a variety of great shops, pubs and restaurants as well as a cathedral, theatre and a 1930s-style cinema.

Entering this bright, colourful and airy property up a step you will find the attractive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The charming lounge is a delightful space to unwind in at the end of the day, with comfortable sofas so you can curl up with a good book or watch a movie on the TV/DVD. The pleasant dining area is perfect for sharing all your favourite family meals. An additional second lounge has further seating and a picture window offering another glorious view over the countryside. The stylishly designed kitchen is a pleasure to cook in and is equipped with everything you may need including a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. Exploring the ground floor further, there’s the first of the property’s three restful bedrooms – a spacious and relaxing twin room. There’s also a large shower room complete with WC. Going upstairs, there are two further twin bedrooms with sloping ceilings, each with a pair of 2’6” beds, a dressing table and a built-in wardrobe. Each of the rooms also has an en-suite shower room complete with a WC.

Heading outside, the cottage has an enclosed private garden with a lawn which is perfect for children kicking a ball around. There’s also a wide terrace with garden furniture and a BBQ so you can sit back with an al fresco meal and enjoy the magnificent country views which surround the cottage, and which are perfect for a night’s stargazing.

The MOST amazing views from this clean and well equipped property. Well located to visit the Black Mountains, the Brecon Beacons and all that lies inbetween! Waking up to the incredible views and the wildlife every morning was wonderful! Jen, the owner, is very welcoming and helpful. A perfect place to breathe and unwind.

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.
