Pen-yr-Heol is perfect for a large family or a group of friends for a weekend break or a week's holiday - this large farmhouse will sleep 20 people in 8 bedrooms.
This 17th century traditional Welsh long house with attached stone barn has been renovated and restored with much of the original character being retained. The house nestles at the foot of the Black Mountain on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park and is situated 3 miles north of Ystradgynlais in the Upper Swansea Valley. The house sits in a large garden with half an acre of its own land where you can listen to the burbling stream and birdsong as a mountain stream runs past one side of the property and a small river flows at the back (fenced off for small children). This cottage is an ideal base for a family or activity groups wishing to spend time together with easy access to both the sea and the mountains; and it is a very good location for visiting the new Geo Park. Palleg Golf Club 1.5 miles, fishing 7 miles. Great for stargazing due to no light pollution.

The Southern Brecon Beacons are a magical expanse of mountains, lakes and Ystradfellte's waterfall country of caves, rushing rivers and steeply wooded gorges. There's plenty to do here. Discover the mountains by foot, bike (this is the home of the fabulous Bike Park Wales) or even train on the Brecon Mountain Railway. Sample whisky (and gin) to rival even the finest Scotch at Penderyn Distillery, or have a day out at the spectacular caving system and dinosaur attraction at Dan yr Ogof. The acclaimed beaches in the Gower and Carmarthenshire are within an hour of many of the cottages. Read more about Southern Brecon Beacons
