Westcombe House was perfect for our special family trip to attend a wedding nearby. The layout of the cottage is very good with the kitchen, diner and lounge on the top floor offering great communal space and fab views of the hills too! There is plenty to do in Crickhowell and the surrounding area, hiking to the Table Mountain is highly recommendedRead more. Tower Street is very narrow but luckily there are 2 private parking spaces outside the cottage. Very well equipped and plenty of fridge/freezer space Hide

A lovely spacious conversion that was ideal for our party of 8 ranging from early 20s to 80+ . Being situated in the middle of the town it was great for going out and not have to worry about driving. It is also quiet being in a small street off the main area of town, although Crickhowell is not a wild place!! The property was very well equipped; ifRead more we'd stayed longer would have tried out the pasta machine. Would definitely book again. No problems with parking 3 cars. Hide

Great accommodation and the perfect base for exploring. The property is clean and has everything you need and more for a great stay. We enjoyed the table tennis and darts. Crickhowell is lovely - we enjoyed coffee (and ice cream) from Latte Da and the cafe at Bookish and had a nice meal at The Bear. It has a good selection of shops too. Laurence isRead more a very friendly and helpful host. Table Mountain, Sugar Loaf Mountain and Pen Y Fan are all within easy reach and well worth a visit. Hide

Location

Map
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.
