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.

The cottage can be found along a quiet, grassy no-through lane close to Aber Village just a mile north of the beautiful Talybont Reservoir which is a wonderful spot for birdwatching. The property is also ideally situated for exploring the Taff Cycle Trail, the Brinore Tramroad and the Henry Vaughan Walk, with the Blaen y Glyn waterfalls nearby (5.5 miles). You can enjoy a meal in the local village of Talybont-on-Usk (1 mile), take a walk around the Pontsticill Reservoir (8 miles) or a trip on a steam train through the region. The popular town of Brecon (8.5 miles) has a cinema, theatre, historic cathedral and a number of great independent shops and places to eat and drink.

The cottage is accessed via a porch which has plenty of room for muddy boots and coats. The cosy and welcoming lounge features original exposed oak beams, a wood burner set in a stone fireplace and Welsh blankets adorning the sofas, making this a warm and peaceful space to sit back in at the end of the day. There’s also a TV and a choice of board games and jigsaws if the weather’s a bit wet. The light and attractive kitchen/diner is well-equipped with everything you may need including an electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, as well as a charming dining area perfect for sharing a favourite family meal together. There’s also a ground-floor utility room with a washing machine as well as a separate WC. Going upstairs there are three cosy bedrooms, two doubles and a twin. There’s also a family bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC.

The cottage sits within wonderful and extensive enclosed gardens which have been imaginatively tiered and provide plenty of space for children to play. The paved terrace provides a lovely seating area and there is also a BBQ and garden furniture. At the bottom of the garden, a gate leads out to a shallow stream which is perfect for children to play at building dams or sailing boats. Parking is available for two cars.

The cottage was well maintained and clean, reasonably comfortable with tv. The garden is beautiful and well maintained. The location of the cottage was a big draw as well. We had a lovely time.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
