Open Fire /



A beautifully refurbished and unique 250-year-old remote Welsh farmhouse perched on a mountainside in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

This rustic cottage in the Brecon Beacons has far-reaching views, wild landscapes, with no immediate neighbours, and the perfect place to come and get away from it all. Snuggle up by the fire in the snug or gaze upon panoramic views of the Brecon Beacons from the double-height converted barn.

Entering from the front door into the first of two living areas. Snuggle up in an armchair in front of the fire and enjoy a drink before moving over to the rustic dining table to eat together or play family board games. Heading down some steps, there is a stunning full-height living room with large glass sliding doors with far-reaching views. There is a second log burner in this spacious room, along with a wall-mounted TV, and comfortable leather sofas. The living space extends to a mezzanine above the living room where children can play. There is a ground floor double bedroom off the main living room.

The well-stocked kitchen, just off the dining area, has everything you need to cater for your break away. There is a breakfast table in the kitchen and all the mod cons including an espresso machine for ground coffee (not supplied). There is a handy utility room off the kitchen with a washing machine, and a boot room/conservatory for extra storage, and some wellies for guest use. Finishing off the ground floor is the family bathroom with a curved freestanding bath and a large walk-in shower.

The first floor master bedroom has mountain views, with a four-poster bed bed. It benefits from a prive en suite, with a shower over bath and wc.

Externally, there is a large enclosed garden which has fencing, with fields beyond and the rolling countryside with spectacular views. Relax with a book or dine al fresco in the fresh mountain air at one with nature.

Brecon Beacons

With mountains and moorland, standing stones and castles, lively waterfalls and vibrant communities, the Brecon Beacons National Park has masses to offer visitors. From horse riding on the mountain bridal paths to gliding through the sky. The Brecon Beacons are full of adventurous walks to explore the country and to admire the beauty of Wales.


The larger market town of Llandeilo approx. 15 mins drive, is well worth a visit, attractions such as Heavenly Ice Cream shop, Ginhaus Deli, The Cawdor Arms Hotel, and many more.

The National Trust Property of Newtown House, Dinefwr Park, and Dinefwr Castle are also located in Llandeilo.

There are several castles along the Tywi (Towy) valley, from Llansteffan at the estuary (also an amazing beach) to Carmarthen, Dryslwyn, Llandovery.


Stop and take time to visit this ancient Drovers' Town, and enjoy the small shops and cafes that share some of the spirit of the town, its people, and environs. Located on the River Tywi stands the remains of the Norman Llandovery Castle, built-in 1110.

Places of interest include the town's famous public school Llandovery College and the Old Printing Shop that was once one of Wales' most important printing centres. Also near at hand is the famous Llyn y Fan Fach with its legend of The Lady of the Lake and her magical cattle.

A little further away is the impressive Llyn Brianne reservoir, standing in the mountains above Rhandirmwyn, a beautiful valley that once throbbed to the beat of the lead mines in the area.


The ancient town of Carmarthen “the oldest town in Wales” is home to many large retailers but has many local independent shops and an indoor market.

The town has a Roman Amphitheatre, castle, a museum in the old Bishop’s Palace, and several churches.

The Carmarthenshire museum is in the old Bishop’s Palace in Abergwili just north of Carmarthen on the main Llandeilo road and is worth a visit.


Take a walk along the Mumbles and enjoy an award-winning ice cream at Joe’s or Verdi’s who also do good pizza.

The Marina and SA1 have a good selection of bars and restaurants and the sweep of Swansea bay is also good, with views across the Bristol Channel. The indoor market is considered the best in Wales, try the Welsh cakes, cockles, and laverbread.

Swansea is considered the gateway to the amazing Gower Peninsular (Gower never “The Gower”) with its many spectacular beaches and coves, as well as the award-winning Beach House Restaurant at Oxwich Bay. Gower has many good pubs and pretty walks.

West Wales

All parts of West Wales are accessible from the property - amazing beaches and country park at Cefn Sidan (Pembrey), 7 miles of sand at Pendine, Tenby an ancient walled town Saint Davids, with its mighty cathedral, Pembroke with its castle, Manobier, and of course the estuary town of Laugharne with its castle and links to Dylan Thomas and the famous Browns Hotel where you can enjoy a drink and a Dexters at Brown's farm to fork steak.

For thrill-seekers there is a Theme park at Oakwood.

For the younger guests, you have many attractions in neighbouring Pembrokeshire, such as Annas Welsh Zoo, the Dinosaur Park in St Florence, Heatherton, and Folly Farm.

We had a very enjoyable and relaxed time at the cottage.
The place is full of character, clean, comfortable and cosy. Spacious and nicely furnished and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is super equipped with everything needed to feel home away from home.
The best feature of the house is its location. The house is in a remote location deep in the Welsh countryside with the most amazing sunsets. Wonderful for us who needed some tranquility and rest.
We will definitely come back for a longer stay.

Such a beautiful, peaceful and perfect place. The photos on here don't and probably can't do the place justice. I planned to checkout early but i couldn't bring myself to leave!

Wildhaven is a wonderful place to pause and reset. This was our second stay, and hopefully not our last! It really feels like it's in the heart of the Beacons National Park with nothing around by sheep, beautiful scenery, and wild horses. I can't recommend it enough.

We had a couple of hiccups with the house, but the hosts communicated well and they were resolved efficiently.

Amazing place to stay if you love being away from the hustle and bustle. Perfect location for walking and exploring! The house itself is also amazing inside and out can't wait to go again!

We had a wonderful week. The cottage was beautiful and we felt right at home straight away. The kitchen had everything we needed. Nice to have a place with full sized fridge freezer. The whole place was very clean. It is very remote. Only a few cars drive by during the day. Ideal spot for local walking. Had a great time at the local castle. The lawn was cut a few days into our stay which made enjoying the garden easier. Would definitely stay here again.

Lovely farmhouse located in wonderful and peaceful location in the Brecon Beacons. Great surroundings and view. It has a nice big garden that is good to relax in and watch the sun set on an evening. It is very quiet and peaceful that is perfect to get away from it all.
Very comfortable furniture to relax in. Nice and functional kitchen with great electric cooker that is easy to use and gets the job done.
Had a few house spiders inside but that is to be expected with the location in the countryside and they were easily removed and put back into nature.

Overall, really nice stay and would go back and stay again.

Wildhaven is truly the best cottage we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many! The views take your breath away and the cottage itself is large and beautifully decorated. The beds are comfortable and the bedding excellent quality. The kitchen is well equipped and both bathrooms luxurious. The Wi-Fi worked well for us, although the television reception was sometimes a little patchy. The microwave made some very odd noises (perhaps the internal light is failing) but still worked when needed. The garden is lovely and although fenced, it is not secure when you have a very determined Cocker Spaniel. There is a rather large hole developing when you turn off the mountain road which may cause problems to some cars. It is genuinely isolated and so peaceful with only the sounds of the local sheep and an early morning wake up call from the crows. Our host was there when needed and it was lovely to get regular texts. We will be back next year and already miss those magnificent views.

What three words is very useful. Walking boots and all weather jackets are good things to keep.
It is recommended to buy things before checking in as Superstore is few miles.

Fantastic location with wonderful walks from the front door. Fantastic landscape away from it all. Lovely home from home, warm and cosy inside with great bathrooms and lounge space. Would love to come back.

Another lovely break at this gorgeous cottage! Perfect place for a quiet, relaxing get away! The cottage is very cosy and comfortable and has everything you need. Highly recommend.

Georgia Stayed in Wildhaven 26.02.2023

Absolutely beautiful property in a breathe taking location. A real 'off the grid' feel without feeling like you are completely isolated. Incredible walks on the door step and a lovely cosy but very private property. The wood burners were a real highlight. Great proactive and very responsive communication from the host. We felt right at home and enjoyed the thoughtful touches and masses of local information provided. We will definitely be returning (asap I hope)!

Karly Stayed in Wildhaven 19.08.2023

Such a comfortable and welcoming home in the most beautiful location. We felt right at home instantly and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the local area. It is relatively remote, so you do need a car and some things take a little while to get to, but it's worth it for the amazing peace and beauty of the location. Also the cottage is so well equipped and we got a Morrisons delivery the day we arrived, so not that remote! We can't wait to come back.

Zak Stayed in Wildhaven 30.11.2020

We had a great couple of days at Wildhaven. It was an ideal combination of remote, long walks from the door, quiet, yet an easy 20 minutes drive from a few villages with pubs and shops. The dogs loved it too! The house itself was fantastic, really great facilities and furniture. Everything was perfect!

David Stayed in Wildhaven 18.08.2020

Stylish rustic presentation; thorough and thoughtful amenities; cosy and comfortable courtesy of the fireplaces and furnishings - all trumped by the even more stunning setting and views. With a few trips under our belt, this accommodation outstripped the lot!

Veronica Stayed in Wildhaven 03.05.2021

This place is an absolute treasure. Very spacious, tastefully decorated and in the most beautiful setting. We loved that we could just walk out the door and could tramp around the Brecons. Our labrador loved the choice of two fireplaces and the garden is very dog friendly and secure. Do yourself a favour and have a bottle of bubbly on the hill watching the sunset go down - just magical.

We loved how isolated the property was - but it is best to come prepared for for your trip. Whilst the kitchen is well kitted out with crockery, kitchenware etc - no basics such as oil, sugar etc are provided (?due to COVID) and we got caught out on the first night. However, all in all a wonderful weekend away.

A beautiful home in the stunning Brecon Beacons national park. The perfect spot to use as a base for walks or to simply enjoy the space and relax in the serenity

Some hosts can be pushy or OTT but Great Welsh Escapes weren’t like that at all.

We were given all the info we needed, before we needed it and knew who to contact if we needed to (which we didn’t).

Elizabeth Stayed in Wildhaven 16.07.2021

Beautiful, tranquil location and fantastic views. Lovely welcome touches of fire wood and some local treats on arrival. Kitchen really well equipped and a number of books and games available. Would absolutely stay again.

A point of note if staying here with a dog, the garden fence is not secure so let them roam freely with caution - ours got out on a number of occasions.

Great holiday!
The accommodation was just what we wanted for a relaxing break with our dogs, just perfect.
Lots of walking from the door and only a short drive to lots of different areas including the coast.
Perfect location for us, we would definitely return!

Aaron Stayed in Wildhaven 20.07.2020

Located among rolling fields, with free-roaming sheep and winding mountain roads, Wildhaven offers complete tranquility from everyday living - quiet nights save the sound of local wildlife: unpolluted night skies to gaze upon the stars; and plenty of hikes, trails, forests, and mountains to enjoy all no further than an hour’s drive away.

Coupled with its charming features and modern comforts, and superb, communicative hosts, it had everything we needed for a perfect trip away from it all.

(FYI stores and amenities are likely further away than you’ll be used to (especially during lockdown, nearest supermarket is about 25-30 min drive), and WiFi and phone signal really is intermittent and poor around Wildhaven. Come prepared for a digital detox!)

Marius Stayed in Wildhaven 23.07.2021

Stayed at this property for a week - amazing location with lots to do and to see around. The description and pictures are accurate, I could even say reality exceeds expectations. You can find all you may need in the house - kitchen is well equipped, plenty of board games to play and movies you can watch if/when tired to explore outside.
Internet connection not the best, but this was a big plus - you can detox from all social media, news etc. - and you can enjoy yourself and have a great rest.
Communication with the host was great, they are very responsive, we sent some comments/suggestions to the host how to make this place even better.

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage in the Brecon Beacons; a perfect place to escape the world for a little while.

Natalie Stayed in Wildhaven 10.10.2022

An absolutely stunning farm house in a magical setting. Myself and my partner have stressful jobs, and live near Manchester, so to come here for absolute peace and tranquility was well needed, and couldn’t be faulted.

The farm house is kept to a high standard, with everything you needed within. Check in was easy, and we were contacted to ensure we knew who to turn to should we need any help.

The location is right on the Black Mountain, and weather conditions naturally can make the property a bit difficult to navigate to and from, however the road isn’t too bad, but we were glad for our 4x4!

The views and remoteness you get for this however are well worth it!

We will 100% be staying here again, and look forward to our next trip here. We already miss it terribly x

Lauren Stayed in Wildhaven 09.06.2021

We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing stay at this beautiful cottage. The property is surrounded by rolling hills and, with mainly the sheep for company, you can really enjoy a feeling of escapism! The property is very tastefully furnished and feels cosy and homely. It also has nice comfy beds and modern bathrooms (with plenty of towels!) and a well-equipped kitchen. There are some beautiful walks within easy reach and the house has lovely views from the huge doors in the lounge. It is worth stopping off for some supplies in town before you arrive as the nearest shop is a 20 minute drive or so and there are no ‘leftover’ basics at the house. We brought our dogs and the property was great for them - although we were not 100% sure the garden was all secure so kept a close eye on our spaniel who has rather a penchant for sheep! Would recommend for those seeking the solace of an ‘away from it all’ hideaway. A special thanks to the two delightful and very friendly ladies who came to clean the house who were a joy to meet. Lauren and Barney

Amazing stay. The farm house is beautifully restored and elegantly furnished. We particularly loved the fireplace next to the big window in the lounge. Our guest experience with Great Welsh Escapes was excellent. Highly recommend

Great Welsh escapes was wonderful!! It was so nice to get out of the city and have a break. The location was beautiful as was the cottage.

The team were always very speedy with their responses to any questions I had and they made sure I got to the location okay and that I had everything I needed.

I had an amazing birthday and would love to revisit in the summer to hopefully go stargazing! :)

Natalie Stayed in Wildhaven 17.03.2023

We had a fantastic stay at Wildhaven - the remote location was exactly the break we needed.
The house is as lovely as the pictures, well equipped and extremely peaceful.
The weather wasn’t great the week we stayed but it didn’t matter! We had one clear night and the blanket of stars in the sky was magical. The WiFi was good and phone reception ok. We’d recommend staying!

Rhea Stayed in Wildhaven 01.07.2021

So great we tried to extend our stay! Comms from Michelle were great throughout too.

Beautiful and tranquil with gorgeous views. Sheep that come to your window to say good morning! Perfect for those wanting a quiet and relaxing getaway.

The house itself was stunning. A real dream holiday home, just wish we’d been able to stay longer! Thanks so much.
