Pet friendly Sunnyside Farm Cottage is a lovely and very spacious cottage to rent for up to 12 people at the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, one of the, if not the, highlight of any journey through rural south Wales. The farm is an award winning sheep and cattle farm which you are welcome to walk around, and to watch, or take part in, different seasonal activities such as bottle feeding spring lambs for example or wool rolling during shearing time.
You’ll find plenty of nice field & woodland walks, and mountain bike trails, around the immediate area too, and of course for more serious hiking there is the magnificent scenery of the Brecon Beacons just a few miles away.
The cottage is large, it has seven bedrooms in total and can sleep up to twelve quite comfortably, but it still retains a nice cosy countryside cottage feel. There is a large living room with an adjoining, spacious, dining room and also a kitchen well enough equipped to cater for any occasion and which includes a washing machine and a dishwasher.
The lounge area has digital TV and DVD player and there is WiFi throughout the house. Outside there is also plenty of space to enjoy with a patio and outdoor seating.
As mentioned previously, you are free to wander all around the farm and to join some of the farm activities and you can take off on hikes or mountain bike rides in the surrounding area where you’ll find plenty of scenic trails to be explored.
The friendly farm owners stay nearby and will always be at hand with help or advice and they can arrange things such a local bike hire and grocery deliveries etc. Pets will be welcomed at the farm but be aware it is a sheep farm so dogs should obviously be kept well controlled!
The farm is just six miles from the village of Brecon, the gateway to the Beacons. It is a deeply rural area of rolling green hills, farms, woodland, winding country roads and quaint little villages, the most well known being Hay-on-Wye which hosts a world famous annual literary festival in late May-early June. The nearest cities are of course Wales’ three main urban centres; Cardiff, Swansea and Newport, all of which are a around an hour away by car and with some very lovely scenery to be enjoyed along the way.
