Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Mid Wales & The Brecon Beacons

The Brecon Beacons form part of The Brecon Beacons National Park and cover a large area of Wales from Llandeilo in the west to Pontypool in the east. The Beacons sit in the centre of three central regions in Mid Wales: The Black Mountains, Fforest Fawr, and the Black Mountains in the East. The area is a must for intrepid walkers, many choosing to stay in handily located holiday cottages in The Brecon Beacons and Mid Wales. Many cottages allow guests to walk straight out onto miles of moorland footpaths where it is great to let the dogs run free, but keep an eye out for the Welsh mountain ponies that roam freely.

If it’s stunning scenery you’re looking for, then the mid-Wales county of Powys and the Brecon Beacons have plenty to keep you content with the wonders of nature and history for as long as you choose to explore this green and pleasant county. In the Brecons, the Henrhyd Waterfall drops 90 feet, and the falls at Ystradfellte are as impressive as any you’ll find in the world. For lovers of geological features, visit the caves of Ogof Ffynnon Ddu.

For those interested in outward-bound activities, the Brecon Beacons have something for adrenalin lovers, especially those desiring to mountain bike, canoe or wild walk the moors with far-reaching views across the Bristol Channel to the Somerset coast. Away from the Brecons, Powys is also a county of lakes, some natural, others large reservoirs, all suitably idyllic for a waterside stroll or a spot of boating from Llangorse to Crib Goch.
