4 Star self catering holiday cottage offering a rural retreat for two in the Brecon Beacons Wales
The Coach House
Our converted Victorian Coach House offers you a rural retreat for 2 in the hills of the Brecon Beacons. Dating from the 19th century it served as the coach house and stables for the vicar of Aberyscir who lived at the Rectory. Aberyscir is a small hamlet on the river Yscir, a tributary of the river Usk, a few miles to the west of Brecon.
There are panoramic views of the mountains and glorious dark night skies to view the stars. Native breed sheep graze our surrounding fields during the summer months and our chickens supply you with free range eggs when available. There is a log burner to curl up in front of after a long relaxing hot bath.

Brecon Beacons Guide
My personal guide to the Brecon Beacons has been compiled from my visits over the years including those as a Brecon Beacons Ambassador. It covers mountains castles monuments lakes and rivers. It includes a selection of the many food literature and music festivals and of cause a selection of restaurant reviews that I have tried out on behalf of my guests.
Hopefully it will help you to enjoy the Brecon Beacons during your stay. I am happy to share as little or as much of this as you like.
It always amazes me how many more places I have yet to visit and I will update this blog as I do.
Brecon is the nearest town with shops, restaurants and in August the Brecon Jazz Festival whilst the famous Hay Festival in the town of Hay on Wye is just 17 miles away.
There are golf courses at Cradoc and Brecon; Brecon has both a leisure centre and theatre; there is fishing on both the Yscir, Usk and Wye rivers and of course some of the best walking, cycling and riding anywhere.
The Brecon Beacons National Park was the first Dark-Sky reserve in Wales making it the perfect destination for stargazers.
"Thank you so much for a warm welcome and a perfect end to our honeymoon. Ideal surroundings, beautiful views and back to being one with nature."

We have had a wonderful holiday staying in your coach house. It was so comfortable and homely and had everything and more we needed. The little extras including rhubarb fresh from the garden - we made a lovely crumble.
Alison & Andrew
John and I can only endorse everything that has been said before. The weather was very kind to us. Valerie and Peter have a wealth of knowledge of the area and the welcome pack was very much appreciated. Couldn't think of a better place to celebrate John's 80th birthday.

We have really loved staying in the coach house. Although here primarily for the Hay Festival we have enjoyed the scenery and countryside. The cottage itself is just perfect and is so well thought out, it has everything you need and lots of thoughtful extras.

Our second stay in this lovely 'home from home'. We appreciate the extra thought that has gone into making this a perfect place to spend time. We also love the wonderful setting so close to lovely places to walk and enjoy the countryside. Thank you to our hosts who are a font of knowledge about the locality.

By good fortune we found ourselves the most comfortable and well equiped holiday home in this lovely coach house. Such a delightful setting and well positioned to see all that the Brecon Beacons has to offer. Valerie's knowledge of the area is impressive and been very helpful. We will return to this cosy cottage.

We have had a delightful week enhanced by superb weather. Everything at the cottage has been very good and we filled our week with walks.
Val & Alan Cottingham
A place so obviously developed to be at one with nature, and an example we should all follow to reverse the ongoing exitential threat to our 'tree of life'. Well done Valerie for creating such a wonderful oasis. Five stars!
Enjoyed our stay in your cosy cottage. Great hosts with lots of tips and information. Thank you.
