Brecon Beacons

We say
The Brecon Beacons is one of the UK's most beautiful National Parks, but only gets a quarter of the visitors of the Lake District. Located within easy reach of many large population centres, it's superb for hiking, mountain biking, stargazing, caving, fishing, rock climbing and horse riding. Find your own little slice of wilderness at one of these rental cottages.

Sykes Cottages says

From the imposing Black Mountains and Central Beacons to the great sandstone massif of Fforest Fawr, the Brecon Beacons is one of the most beautiful National Parks in the UK.

  • Stunning countryside
  • Walking trails
  • Activities nearby

It’s a great favourite amongst walkers – with more than 1,200 miles of public rights of way, charming villages and ancient castles – and there’s a wealth of outdoor activities on offer. To whet your appetite, options include caving, gliding, climbing, fishing, golf, pony trekking, mountain biking, water sports, wildlife walks, bushcraft and star gazing.

A day trip on the beautiful Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal is a treat on a fine day and you can go down a coal mine at Big Pit, part of the Blaenavon World Heritage Site. All the family will love the Dan-yr-Ogof National Showcaves and Dinosaur Park and a ride on the Brecon Mountain Railway.

When it comes to a place to stay, what better than the space and freedom of your own cottage. We have selected more than 60 properties from one up to 8 bedrooms. All are fully equipped with everything you need for a self-catering holiday and we will arm you with information on places to eat and more to make the most of your holiday.

The Coach House is packed with character and has two bedrooms. Located near Abergavenny, there’s a pub and shop in walking distance.

If expansive views are on your wish list, the three-bedroom Caecrwn barn conversion is the perfect choice. For couples, there’s Penllan Granary, located on a working farm with endless walks on your doorstep.

Many of our cottages in the Brecon Beacons accept dogs – it’s hard to think of a more wonderful place to walk with man’s best friend.
