A real woodman's cottage set in the tranquil woodlands, wake in the morning to the symphony of birdsong and wind down at the end of the day in front of the crackling wood burner.

This beautiful cottage nestled amongst magical, Welsh woodland is a delightful rural retreat for couples or small families. If you’re looking to escape the hectic pace of everyday life and immerse yourselves in the beauty of nature, this is the property for you. Situated on the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to walking/cycling routes or picturesque picnic spots. Enjoy a relaxing end to the day by lighting the wood burner and snuggling up on the sofa before heading up the steep staircase to bed.

Brimming with character, this charming property has been sympathetically renovated to create a welcoming home. Original features such as exposed beams, stone walls and the fireplace are the stars of the show, whilst underfloor heating and a contemporary, but traditional-style bathroom make it suitable for modern visitors. Traditional furniture has also been used, in keeping with its heritage, while neutral tones make it feel light and airy throughout. Guests have acres of woodland to explore, but there is also a small terrace, which is perfect for a morning coffee or an al fresco meal.

Despite its tranquil location, surrounded by Welsh countryside boasting walking and cycling trails, this cottage is only 2 miles from the bustling market town of Brecon. Here, you’ll find shops and eateries as well as places of historical interest. For a walking challenge, head up Pen-Y-Fan (8 miles), South Wales’ highest peak, which offers breathtaking panoramas from the top. For something more leisurely, take a stroll along the pretty Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. There are also wonderful caves, waterfalls and rivers to discover nearby, including the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (21 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A perfect location tucked away in the solitude of the woods, but with the market town of Brecon on the doorstep.

The most delightful and magical place you will ever visit. We were there for Christmas and the owner added some really special touches to make it so festive. We have already booked a return.

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.
