Rural cottage with play areas on an organic farm near Brecon, surrounded by peaceful countryside.

Holiday on a farm at the heart of the Brecon Beacons and take two of your special four-pawed friends along with you. Up to six guests can also stay at this delightful, three-bedroom country cottage, approximately 12 miles from Brecon. Explore the 220-acre farm or find superb walking routes to follow every day. Take your precious pets out with you to discover the dramatic scenery of the Black Mountains.

Enter this inviting holiday home to find an open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner with all the creature comforts required for an exceptional stay. Light the wood burner on chilly days and relax in here with your four-legged friends at your feet. Open the doors on to the garden whenever the weather is warm. Watch the Sky Freesat TV, listen to music on the Hi-Fi or simply take in the views. Prepare meals for the pups in the kitchen then whip up dinner for everyone else. 

For further comfort take yourself into the main lounge and tuck your feet up on one of the three large sofas and settle to watch some TV on the big screen.  Here you will also find the main dining table that seats six. Let the competitor come out in you, and challenge your family  or friends to a game of table football, or pass the time away playing one of the many board games available. There is also a good selection of puzzles for you to use. 

Just off the main lounge, three steps up, take you in to a comfortable and spacious bedroom, with a zip-and-link super king-size bed, which has a British wool mattress. All duvets and pillows in Bryniau Pell are made from recycled plastic. This bedroom has its own wet room style shower room with a double headed shower, WC and sink.

There’s one downstairs WC, while upstairs you will find a  traditional double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a nursery with two cots. The family bathroom has a shower over the p-shaped bath and WC.

Serve breakfast, lunch and dinner out in the garden on warm days, while the delighted dogs play on the grass. Light the BBQ, watch the birds during the day and soak up the starry skies at night. There is generous parking at the cottage. 

There are many walks to discover in the area to tire out energetic paws, including a 5.5-mile hike around the Cray Reservoir, which partly follows a disused railway line. Exhaust the pups with a trip to Fforest Fawr Geopark, about 12 miles away, where there are also lots of routes to follow. Drive into Brecon to shop for tasty local treats for humans and hounds alike then pause for a while in one of the town’s pubs that happily welcomes four-legged customers.

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

The cottage was immaculate. It has everything you would ever want or need. It even came complete with freshly baked Welsh cakes. Couldn't have asked for me. Will definitely visit again and can't recommend enough.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The play room was ideal for our kids and the cottage is lovely. Sustainability is everywhere, implemented in everything from choice of sheets to waste management. something we love! We would have enjoyed some more info about the farm itself, maybe a little tour or the chance to help with feeding the animals. But this Read morewasn?t offered and we didn?t (dare to) ask. We did enjoy collecting eggs and seeing the animals around us. Hide
