Fall in love with this whitewashed cottage on a quiet country lane from the moment you arrive. Inside, the ground floor boasts a cosy space for four guests to make themselves at home. Despite traditional surroundings, the kitchen is a well-equipped and modern room with everything you need, whilst a generous dining table welcomes celebratory meals together. In the evening, throw some logs on the wood burner and settle into the lounge, making the most of Sky TV so that you don’t miss your favourite shows. Upstairs, find two bedrooms hidden in the rafters, with low sloped ceilings and timber floors adding to the authenticity of this delightful cottage, or step into the family bathroom with a luxurious roll-top bath for late-night soaks.

Despite its solitary location, the village of Cwmdu promises a local pub and cafe for effortless dining, both found just 0.5 miles away. Put on your walking boots to take in the countless routes around you, with the property benefiting from a central location in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

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.
