A wonderfully renovated white-washed stone cottage, enjoy both the bustle of town and the wilderness of the countryside during your stay in the heart of the town of Brecon .

Bursting with character, this charming Grade II-listed cottage is perfect for friends and families who want to relax and enjoy time together in a unique setting. Situated in the heart of bustling market town, Brecon, this property has the convenience of the town’s shops and eateries on its doorstep as well offering easy access to the rural beauty of the Brecon Beacons Natural Park. It is also a few hundred metres from the pretty Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, which is a lovely spot for a peaceful stroll.

Boasting a wealth of original features, this delightful cottage is like stepping back in time, but with the convenience of contemporary fixtures and fittings. Wonderfully renovated, the beauty of the flagstone floors, wood panelling, exposed beams and stone fireplaces is accentuated by the neutral walls that create a light and airy feeling throughout. A bespoke kitchen adds to the individuality, the dining room is spacious with a sense of occasion, while the lounge is cosy. Sleeping six people over three gorgeous bedrooms, there’s plenty of space for everyone, although there are low beams adding to the charm. Outside, there is an enclosed garden to relax in.

Situated on the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons, Brecon is packed with historical interest. There is also plenty of countryside to explore, such as South Wales’ highest peak, Pen-y-Fan (6 miles), which affords panoramic views of the National Park from the top. Slightly less strenuous is Pen-y-Crug (1.5 miles), an ancient hill fort which offers views of the Black Mountains. For families looking for a fun day out, head to Cantref Adventure Farm (3 miles), or take to the water and enjoy a day of paddleboarding or kayaking on Llangorse Lake (7 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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?
