Compact and beautifully formed, return to this cosy retreat after days exploring the mountains, lakes, waterfalls, moorland and woodland in the wildly rugged Brecon Beacons.

Conveniently situated on the main road, providing easy access by car or public transport, whatever the season or the weather. Ideal for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park, Brecon is 7 miles away and the picturesque small town of Crickhowell 6 miles in the opposite direction. Llangynidr is 1 mile away with canal walks, a tennis court and two excellent pubs. Try the outdoor activities available at Llangorse Activity Centre with its climbing wall and Cantref Adventure Farm, both with pony trekking centres. Hire a kayak and paddle along the Brecon and Monmouth Canal, or walk along the River Wye and the River Usk. The Henry Vaughan Walk along The Brinoyre Tram Road winds through the scenic and historic Talybont valley or immerse yourselves in Welsh cultural history with a visit to one of many historic houses, gardens and castles.

This delightful cottage is much loved and full of character, with oak beams and exposed stone walls complemented by fresh cream interiors and comfortable furnishings making this a welcome retreat. The neatly fitted kitchen has a gas hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine. The dining area has a lovely, original quarry-tiled floor and a table perfect for romantic mealtimes. Upstairs, the lovely and light living room has large skylights to make the most of the fabulous far-reaching views across the valley. Large oak beams and exposed stone walls featuring little nooks with the doors all ledge and brace, a nod is given to the historic design of this lovely cottage. Snuggle on the sofa with a good book or a film and a glass of wine, before retiring to the attractive double bedroom for good night's sleep. Completing the upstairs, the wet room style bathroom has a powerful shower.

The property has a small enclosed yard area with seating and a portable BBQ. Cars can be parked outside the cottage for unloading and then moved to the designated parking area just over the road. A popular dog friendly pub serving meals is within walking distance, as is a shop with post office.  A farm shop with café can also be found within a mile.

Great location. Well equipped and comfortable

Cosy accommodation but on a noisy road, and outside space a bit disappointing.

Reviewed by Mrs Hooper September 2020

A nice comfortable cottage with most things you would want while on holiday. The bread, milk, butter and homemade jam were very acceptable. Lots of cleaning products provided too which is always good. The only thing I would say is that I would have like a couple more baking dishes as I only found one small one and more than four mugs would be useRead moreful as there was a dish washer. But otherwise the kitchen was well provided. Hide

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.
