The Brecon Beacons National Park is hundreds of miles of protected, untouched countryside dotted with pretty Welsh villages, waterfalls, pubs and some amazing places to stay. From cottages to cabins, here’s where to hunker down in style.


A five-star luxury 16th-century stone cottage with an outdoor hot tub, stunning decor, aga oven, pool table, open fires, wood-beamed ceilings and unobstructed views of the incredible countryside. You have everything you need for a delightfully comfortable stay and the perfect set-up to explore the area. The space is set over three floors and is big enough to sleep up to eight people.

Damson Cottage

This traditional well-equipped cottage is a dreamy place to stay. Sheep, ponies, ducks and chickens are all kept on-site, and there are magnificent valley views that can be seen all around. It sleeps two and has a wood-burning stove, French doors opening out onto a private orchard and a barbecue.


Wanderoo is a truck that has been converted into a dynamic living space, parked in a part of the park with stretching views over Pen-y-Fan and the Black Mountains. There’s a king-size double bed, a wood burner, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and even balconies. Wanderoo’s most special feature, though, is the hot tub which you can soak in whilst admiring the landscape or stargazing at night.

Peterstone Court

A luxurious hotel, historic house and spa all in one. Bedrooms have mountain views and all the trimmings, including bathrobes and slippers. Treatments at the on-site spa use only natural organic products. There’s also a sauna, jacuzzi, outdoor heated pool and gym to help unwind after exploring the Brecon Beacons.

The Hobbit House

Buried within the footholds of a grassy hill is this adorable bungalow for two that replicates the home of Bilbo Baggins. Equipped with a wood-fired cooker to keep you warm, this cosy cabin only contains the bare essentials but makes for an unforgettable and authentic rustic experience. Plus, it is near the small market town of Hay-on-Wye for any necessary provisions – or maybe for a trip to one of the local traditional pubs like The Blue Boar.
