Set within beautiful extensive grounds, this fantastic Victorian country house is on the outskirts of the Brecon Beacons and makes a wonderful holiday base for a large group or a family celebration.

Sitting on the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this bolthole is perfect for large groups on a search for adventure. Sleeping 21, and three four-legged guests, whisk family and friends away for a trip to remember and make yourselves at home in this welcoming abode. Explore by day and return home to the entertaining games room and pair of cosy lounges.

Step inside through the porch on the veranda and find yourself in the grand entrance hall filled with light and an extravagant sweeping staircase. Make your way into one of two lounges, both of which house a warming wood burner for cosy nights in, and put your feet up for some peace and quiet or enjoy a sociable evening. Home to two light kitchens, step down and make use of the range oven, American-style fridge/freezer and the dishwasher to cook up delicious meals and clean up with ease. If you’re dining inside, the dining room has two large tables which comfortably seat all guests between them so you can enjoy communal meals and raise a glass to good times. If the sun is shining, sizzle up the BBQ and take a plate outside for an al fresco feast in the large garden which leads to an orchard and woodland. After a game of table tennis in the games room, head to bed in one of nine tranquil bedrooms set over three floors.

Just 2 miles from the fabulous market town of Brecon, head here to browse independent shops, grab a bite to eat or to visit the canal basin or cathedral. A 6-mile trip will take you to the largest natural lake in South Wales where you can enjoy a stroll or take to the water and make a splash at one of the nearby activity centres.

A wonderful stay at Tyn Y Cae for a family of 20! Excellent service from Ruth, the owner, pointed me to floor plans which made it easy to assign bedrooms. Mattresses were super comfortable and duvets extra warm. Clean and spacious accommodation. Highly recommended and will definitely be booking again in the future!

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.
