The Farmhouse

The Cottage

Maerdy Holiday Cottages, on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, are ideal for group accommodation, short breaks, B&B or a holiday in rural Mid Wales. In one of the loveliest valleys in Wales surrounded by woods and farmland, the 300-year old farmhouse and its original stone buildings have been beautifully converted into 6 cottages sleeping between 3 and 10 people. Two are totally wheelchair accessible.
Enjoying a tranquil setting amongst mature wooded gardens with a stream, they are furnished with many antiques and well equipped throughout. Warm, welcoming and cosy retreats ideal for a holiday at any time of the year and perfect for relaxing winter breaks. The grounds offer plenty of space for children and dogs, and lovely walks straight from the cottage doors will delight country lovers, bird watchers and serious hikers alike. Wood-burning stoves, patios with sitting out area and furniture, some with private gardens. Mountain bikes for hire. Meals and baby sitting by arrangement.
Prices from £265 per week. Low season mini-breaks.

Self Catering Suite and Yurt

The New Inn is situated in the tiny Herefordshire village of Brilley on the Welsh borders. This 18thC stone house, with its extensive grounds and stream running through it, enjoys stunning views of the Black Mountains, the beautiful Wye Valley and the Brecon Beacons.
A former rural inn, the main house is adjoined by a self-contained suite sleeping 6.
The suite consists of a kitchen with an oil-fired Rayburn, bathroom and 1 double bedroom on the ground floor. Upstairs are 2 further double bedrooms. Please note, the suite is furnished in a very simplistic way with futon-style beds on the floor and basic facilities and can be used as a retreat by those seeking a more contemplative break. Wi-fi available. Shared garden, BBQ and parking.
The Fresh Spring Yurt, sleeping 4-6 is a comfortable outdoor experience and an alternative to indoor living, complete with wood burner to make it cosy and snug.  There’s a shower room nearby, and the old ‘Cow Shed’ for preparing your breakfast and snacks with a pleasant sitting space. The Yurt is in its own grounds in a totally private setting. As Yurts are, the dome is very high, this gives a sense of spaciousness, the cap being transparent you have the view of the sky, the clouds and the stars. Ideal for kids and pets.
Prices: Self Catering Suite £200 - £300 per week all year round, depending on number in party. Short breaks subject to  availability.
Yurt from £410 per week/£70 per night, minimum 2 nights.
Evening meal and packed lunches by arrangement. If you are walking the Offa’s Dyke Path or the Wye Valley Walk, we can collect and deliver your luggage to your next destination.
