Perfect for a family exploring the Brecon Beacons, this Welsh stone-built cottage is set in idyllic surroundings with beautiful gardens, a stream running by the house and stunning mountain views.

Just a mile from Talybont-on-Usk, this pretty, white cottage is situated in an idyllic location tucked along a no-through lane. There’s a stream running at the bottom of the garden and stunning mountain views surrounding you, the perfect spot for a family getaway for six guests in the Brecon Beacons.

The cosy lounge is welcoming and retains some of the building’s original features such as exposed oak beams and the stone fireplace.

Outside is an extensive and tiered, enclosed garden, with plenty of space for children to play, teenagers to sunbathe and the adults to cook on the BBQ.

We had a great stay in the amazing Ty Watten. The cottage is very homely, with all the amenities you need. The real draw is the beautifully tended garden. If you're as lucky as we were with the weather, you can light up the barbecue, relax with the calming sound of the stream and watch the red kites circling overhead. Aber Village is secluded, but Read morenearby (25 min walk) Talybont has two good pubs and Post Office/general store. Loads of great walks on your doorstep or a short drive away. Hide

Fantastic secluded location. Beautiful cosy cottage with lots of character and charm. Useful large boot room / downstairs toilet. Wonderful patio area, leading to a stunning tiered garden, which was a real sun trap, with an abundance of plants and flowers, which attract a variety of birds.

Magical cottage in a fabulous location - we thoroughly enjoyed our first "escape" into the real world after all the Covid regulations. This was the ideal place to relax and watch the world go by - sun, rain, abundant wildlife and then a cosy log fire - perfect.

Clean and comfortable. Warm and cosy. Lovely garden with a lovely little stream.

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.
