Magnificent Manor House, near Brecon (VALEBR)

Vale Farm Cottages are an exciting new holiday properties made up of six cottages in a beautiful rural setting, which we believe would be perfect for large groups wishing to holiday together. The converted barns are just a ten minute drive out of the market town of Brecon, but feel a million miles away from the hurly burly of everyday life.
Set in stunning countryside with panoramic views of the Brecon Beacons and surrounding farmland, a peaceful holiday is guaranteed at Vale Farm. Whether you choose to stay in the spacious three-bedroom Vale Oak or the cosy one-bedroom Vale Wild Cherry, you will find everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay.
Vale Farm is perfect for families with every need catered for. The owners provide everything from cots and stair gates, toys, books, a play area and acres of space to run off all that energy!
The old and characterful stone buildings are located on a working farm with cows, sheep, hens, ducks, pigs and a donkey called Star. They are situated around a little courtyard near the owners' farmhouse.

There's ample car parking, BBQs for guest use, a shed for storing bikes, canoes and other outdoor equipment.

What I love best is the fabulous indoor heated swimming pool.

The Coppice - Meeting Room

There is a newly converted barn just across the court yard that now will seat everybody with catering facilities if needed for large family gatherings, special occasions, meetings or for a Conference.

A children's play area with swings and slides and masses of room for safe outdoor play.

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.
