Beacons Rest Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
Beacons Rest is a welcoming first floor studio apartment in a quiet location in Fennifach, two miles from Brecon. There is one open plan studio room with a double bed, kitchen area, dining table and armchair. There is also a separate shower room. Outside is off road parking for one car, along with a private balcony with furniture, and shared use of a lawned garden. With both the amenities of Brecon and the countryside of the Beacons on the doorstep, Beacons Rest makes a wonderful year round retreat.

The town of Brecon, on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park has Georgian and Jacobean architecture, a cathedral, museums, a theatre, a cinema, shops, restaurants and pubs. The stunning Brecon Beacons National Park is a haven for walkers and cyclists, with breathtaking countryside, waterfalls and caves. Also with the National Park are market towns, castles, and monuments, plus relaxing activities, such as pony trekking, and a ride on the Brecon steam railway. Within driving distance is the town of Hay-on-Wye with its many book and antique shops, plus the towns of Abergavenny and Builth Wells are well worth exploring. Brecon is an ideal base from which to explore the area.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in NorthWales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

The accommodation was exactly as described and perfect for a quiet, peaceful getaway for two and for exploring the local countryside. The riverside walk was pretty and abundant with wildlife. Our hosts were helpful and friendly throughout our stay without being intrusive.

We particularly liked the peace and tranquillity made for a perfect relaxing break and an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Brecon Beacons,also the very friendly welcome on arrival.

Studio-size unusual-format accommodation, this little hideaway gem is excellent. Discreet, helpful owners on site. Tucked away down a lane with fields above and river below, it has charm and calm to chill out. The nearby town is blessedly free from the high street, the surrounding beacons, waterway and villages almost mysterious! A one-off quality experience but one you will hanker after returning to. Curiously addictive.

We would certainly recommend this well appointed property for a lovely relaxing break. Set in a wonderful quiet location and an ideal base for walks and visiting the surrounding areas. It was well equipped with everything you would need in the kitchen, bathroom and living area. On arrival we not only received a warm welcome, but also fresh flowers and freshly made home baked bread. We would definitely go again.

Excellent cosy accommodation for two, with good access to Brecon Beacons, and other attractions in the area. Overall a great location.

It was our first trip to Wales, and we were amazed at how beautiful it was. Beacons Rest is perfectly located for full access to Brecon and the surrounding area. Whilst small the apartment is perfectly organised, and has everything you could need. It was also incredibly clean.

The owners were helpful. We felt comfortable and welcome and found a high level of cleanliness in the property. It was a useful and peaceful base from which to attend the jazz festival.

I had such a lovely stay at Beacons Rest. The facilities were clean, comfortable, homely and perfectly adequate for my stay.

The cosy accommodation space complemented the whole feel and was very nice indeed for a couple. The bed was very comfortable with feather pillows and chocolate on arrival. The area was fabulous and walking is definitely recommended. The owners are very personable and friendly if you need any help. Would recommend the flat if you like it cosy and just right for two.
