A cosy retreat set within the banks of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, perfect for two. Enjoy endless walks from the doorstep and plenty of welcoming country pubs nearby.

Tucked away in the pretty village of Llangenny, not far from bustling Crickhowell, this charming cottage offers the perfect base for a romantic walkers’ retreat. Sleeping two guests and a dog, the property comes equipped with everything you may need for a comfortable stay in the Brecon Beacons, including the additional luxury touch of a sauna for easing those aching muscles after a trip up Sugar Loaf mountain. Discover nearby Abergavenny or simply make yourselves at home in Crickhowell, always returning to the cottage’s comfortable surroundings wherever your day’s adventure may take you. On arrival, you’re met with a cosy lounge that’s perfect for two, complete with a love seat sofa and a TV to keep you entertained. Continue through into the spacious kitchen which offers an ideal sleeping spot for your four-pawed pal. All of the appliances have been thought through to take the load off throughout your stay, including the addition of a dishwasher and a coffee machine. For dinner, you have the option to step out via French doors to dine alfresco from the pretty lounge or settle at the dining table indoors. Also on the ground floor is a bedroom with a zip-and-link super-king-size bed for versatility. As they’re often on hand to offer advice on the local area, you may perhaps ask the property’s owners which walking routes they’d recommend. Located in the foothills of Sugar Loaf mountain, you’ll even find a waymarked pathway leading to the summit from the cottage’s back garden. Should you wish to try out a less taxing hike, Table Mountain is close by (3.5 miles) and offers a great view of Crickhowell (2 miles). Head to the top and admire the view whilst planning which Crickhowell or Abergavenny (5 miles) restaurant you wish to frequent that evening.

The woodpecker apartment was lovely and spacious. The views from the higher BBQ area were stunning and with the goats and pigs in the field it was very idyllic!

The lodge is in a beautiful, magical location with lovely views from the gardens. It is very nicely furnished and well equipped, with outside seating on a small terrace. It is attached to the owners' property next door and they are very helpful but do not impose on your privacy. The car park is reached by a fairly steep slope but it is possible to Read morepark by the lodge if necessary. The spotty pigs and pygmy goats in the neighbouring fields add charm to the lovely setting. Hide

The lodge is comfortable and extremely spacious, set in beautiful gardens, in a lovely part of the country. I loved looking at the cute pigs and goats in the field. I would just warn anyone who is not an early riser and/or is a light sleeper (I am both.), that the other two lodges are above this one, and you may be woken up by noisy residents.

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.
