The perfect base for outdoor enthusiasts, walk straight from the door of this charming cottage along a footpath onto the rugged Black Mountains.

Escape to this magical hideaway, nestled in the Black Mountains, at Pengenffordd, within the Brecon Beacons National Park. Sleeping up to four guests, the former barn has been transformed into a character-filled, two-bedroom, holiday home. Take a delighted dog with you to the single-storey cottage. Plan hill walks; hire bicycles from the village or head 7.5 miles into Llangattock to follow a stretch of the Brecon and Monmouth Canal.

Find your way into this comfortable holiday cottage, which offers an exquisite balance of character features, such as revealed stonework and timber beams, with contemporary decor. Find the lounge to be the perfect place to unwind after your busy day: stoke up the wood burner in here during the winter months and perhaps watch the Smart TV, which has Freesat.

Prepare food in the farmhouse-style kitchen/diner, with its cooker and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Serve up at the large dining table and open the large windows on summer days to bring in a cool breeze. Find both the bedrooms are close by, one with a king-size bed and door on to the terrace, the other with twin beds and a huge window. The shower room, which is shared, has a walk-in shower, WC and handbasin. Enjoy outdoor living at this delightful property, with its enclosed garden, where you can relax on the lawn, light the BBQ and dine out on the decking.

Enjoy being just 5 miles from the market town of Talgarth, with its independent shops, cafes and restaurants.

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.
