Super converted barn of distinction close to the delightful town of Crickhowelll. Walks right from your door making the most of the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.

Escape to the Welsh countryside and unwind amid exposed beams, country style and quirky features at this homely barn. If you need entertaining after days in the great outdoors, the garden games room is a top hit with competitive guests whilst the river veranda is a great place to sit on a warm evening. Sleeping eight guests over four bedrooms, bring two dogs along to this property and have a ball together with family and friends. Head inside this converted barn and enjoy dining together beneath exposed beams. Family dinners are a real treat and, with plenty of room, you can sit for hours in the kitchen/diner which has a simple country style. The kitchen area is spacious with room for more than one pair of hands to prepare meals. In the summer months, tuck into BBQs and make the most of your large, enclosed garden with a decked area, table tennis table and riverside terrace. Relax in the cosy lounge which is warmed by a wood burner and underfloor heating or challenge fellow guests in the garden games room. Quirky, original features such as lights and sewing machines add character and charm throughout. Two staircases lead to the king-size bedroom with a Jack and Jill bathroom, the bunk bedroom and two doubles. There are two pull-out beds in the garden room and off-road parking for two cars. From your fantastic location, head out to explore. Climb Llangorse Mountain, hire kayaks on Llangorse Lake (10.5 miles) or summit the highest peak in South Wales, Pen-y-Fan (21.5 miles) for views to remember. 6 miles south, picturesque Crickhowell has lots of walking routes and a bakery where you can pick up delicious treats.

Excellent cottage that caters for children of all ages. The farm has friendly dogs who love to play in the nearby stream. The games room is fantastic for older children and the garden is a good size for younger children.

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.
