Splashes of colour sit aside the muted and elegant interiors, with the contemporary styling complemented by the rustic and traditional touches such as the exposed stonework and wooden beams. The modern kitchen has a cooker and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The dining table has plenty of seating, and with the double doors opening out into the garden, enjoy the fresh air every mealtime. The bright yet cosy living room boasts a large corner sofa and a further two-seater sofa and rocking chair, so there is no shortage of places to stretch out and relax. As the evening draws in, light the wood burner and snuggle down in front of a good film on the Smart TV, or perhaps catch up with a good book. Come nightfall, retire to the two delightful bedrooms. The master has a solid oak king size bed and a door opening out onto the terrace. The twin room has a floor to ceiling window, so it is lovely and bright.

Absolutely fantastic! Spacious, clean and tidy! Perfect mix of luxury in the cottage mixed with rustic charm and character. The wood burner was definitely the highlight of the day after returning from a walk. Nothing to dislike at all. All perfect! Well equipped, perfectly positioned in the countryside, modern, very clean & tidy.

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.
