Charming Holiday Home, near Brecon (BUCKCBR)

This delightful Victorian cottage, restored with style and flair makes it an exceptionally welcoming and comfortable place to stay. Sleeping 6/8 guests in 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms, overlooking old parkland and set in a secluded, sheltered spot (rather like a Hanzel & Gretel Cottage). The cottage has woodland behind with bluebell woods in spring and miles of walking up to Bwlch Common, Llangorse mountain and beyond.

The cottage is set high on a bank with some stone steps in front leading up to a lovely veranda. Here you can sit out in the evening with a drink or a BBQ and watch the sun go down, the sheep grazing peacefully in the fields and the birds swooping over the old parkland with its beautiful specimen trees and old tennis courts. The cottage which was once part of The Buckland Hall Estate has been very beautifully renovated with wooden floors, lovely carpets, luxurious beds and good quality fabrics and furnishings. From the cottage there are walks through the forestry tracks up to Buckland Hill and across to Bwlch Common and Llangorse Mountain, all part of The Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains National Park.

LocationMid Wales

This is the go to place for outdoor enthusiasts to make the most of the fantastic walking, riding & cycling opportunities, especially in the Cambrian Mountains National Park. The Ceredigion Coastal Path features numerous trails to choose from depending on how far you wish to travel. Whether for a full walking holiday or just a stroll along the cliffs to a village pub, this unspoilt route is perfect and has views out across the famous Cardigan Bay which is home to the UKs largest pod of dolphins.

Dotted along the Wales-West England border are lots of lovely market towns, many of which have their own castle. This disputed ground has a large number of Roman and Norman medieval fortresses, today some are only ruins or just the earthen works remain however there are plenty which have restored to their former glory and are open to visitors.

Mid Wales also just touches on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, a popular mountain range for exploring caves, forest activities and other more extreme outdoor sports such as rock climbing and abseiling. A number of historic railways mean other regions of Wales are easily accessible for a day trip, and make for an enjoyable way to travel and take in the sights.
