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.

Surrounded by beautiful gardens that are rich in wildlife, this charming lodge is one of three properties set opposite the owners' home, and simply perfect for exploring the various trails and footpaths that will guide you onto the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Weary from your adventures, the local pub 0.5 miles away has a fine selection of real ales and hearty meals to save you from cooking. The local area is renowned for being popular amongst foodies, with two Michelin-starred restaurants and celebrated gastropubs within 9 miles. If you time your visit to coincide with the Abergavenny Food Festival in September, you’ll be in for a treat.

Accessed via a gently stepped path, the property itself is a cosy retreat that sleeps two guests. The comfortable lounge is bright and spacious with natural light that streams in through the French doors and the room is equipped with a snug sofa and armchair, and a TV/DVD player. There is a spacious kitchen diner where you can enjoy home-cooked meals from the well-equipped kitchen complete with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, toaster, and coffee maker. The bedroom is spacious with a super-king-size zip-and-link that can be made into twin beds at the time of booking. And, for total relaxation, you can take advantage of the electric sauna. There is a shower room with a shower and a WC off the bedroom. Shared laundry facilities can be found on-site. The friendly owners can also be approached to ask about the best routes for exploring the area.

Outside, you'll find a sunny terrace with seating, alongside 3.5 acres of attractive gardens and a small area of woodland, home to a few curious pheasants that wander throughout the area. If you want to explore the local area, there is a path to Sugar Loaf Mountain right from the sun terrace.

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

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.

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.
