Property code: 81465

This traditional stone bothy set in the heart of a working farm offers a cosy base that is perfect for couples wanting to enjoy the rugged landscape and many market towns of the Brecon Beacons.

Tucked into a hillside surrounded by wide open countryside, this secluded farm is just the tonic for an outdoor-loving couple and their beloved canine. Enjoy walks from the doorstep of your romantic bolthole or head off for epic adventures in the natural playground of the Brecon Beacons National Park. On days when you don’t want to stray too far, amble 2 miles to Painscastle for a refreshing pint or cosy meal in the dog-friendly village inn.

Scamper up stone steps to the front door of the cottage, and step into the welcoming open-plan living space. With exposed ceiling beams and a feature brick wall, it has bags of traditional charm while still feeling coolly contemporary. Enjoy simple homecooked suppers and sink into the sofa to watch a rom-com on the Smart TV, with Rover curled up beside you in his dog bed. When it’s your own bedtime, you’ll access your double room via a pull-down ladder with rope rail. During your stay, you’re welcome to dine alfresco and mooch around the garden, which is shared with the owner.

Breathe in spectacular panoramic views across the Brecon Beacons with hill-top walks on The Begwyns (3 miles). The route is classed as easy, so you don’t have to be super-fit for the climb. Literature lovers won’t want to miss Hay-on-Wye (7 miles), famous for its second-hand bookshops and arts festival. It also has several pubs that welcome muddy paws. If you’d rather have a picnic, walk to The Warren for lunch beside the River Wye. Further afield, at Llangorse Lake (17.5 miles), hire a boat or take your pup for a scenic walk.

I stayed at The Granary with my dog. We found it a great location for lots of walks. Some 30 mins away some 50 mins but the drives were quiet and easy. The cottage was comfortable with everything I needed for the stay. The owners greeted me and were very friendly, they left a welcome basket and milk for much needed coffee. For a farm it was lovely Read moreand quiet, no early morning noises. I would stay again if they would have me perhaps in the spring. Hide

We had a fantastic stay. It was in the perfect location and the cottage was ideal for our needs. We had an amazing welcome and ongoing communication with Andrew and Sarah who made us feel like we were part of the family. Living on a working farm was amazing. We cooked at the cottage most days and the facilities were good, there wasnt anything that Read morewe felt was needed in addition to what was supplied. Just the perfect week. Hide
