Sleeping two people, this cosy first floor studio apartment is in a quiet location two miles from Brecon.

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.


Beacons Rest is a delightful bijou studio apartment.
It is ideally situated to explore the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.There are some excellent walks that can be done from Beacons Rest. These start with a lovely riverside path which leads to the town of Brecon. My favourite was the ascent of Pen y Crug. The view from the summit of Brecon and the Pen y Fan range with half a dozen red kites and a couple of buzzards soaring overhead was marvellous. A walk description is in the apartment, although this can be considerably shortened by doing the walk direct from Brecon. Beacons Rest is very well equipped and sunbathing on the balcony, even in September, with the beautiful views and sightings of rabbits, squirrels, red kites, buzzards and ravens was very relaxing. The owners were most welcoming and presented me with a delicious loaf of newly baked bread on my arrival. The narrow access road is rarely a problem, because very little traffic uses it. Provisions can be obtained from Morrisons or the Cooperative in Brecon. I enjoyed my holiday at Beacons Rest so much, that I have already booked for September 2019!

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.
Mrs Goodeve

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.
Mr Shaw

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.
Mr Elliott

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.
