  • Beautifully restored holiday home for eight overlooking the River Senni
  • With gorgeous views and set in the heart of the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Ideal for the Pen y Fan and Cribyn peaks, and the Brecon Beacons National Park Mountain Centre
Property code: BN151

A carefully renovated Welsh house, perfect for a group holiday and set close to the River Senni, with surroundings that are perfect for hill rambling and peak climbing.

Close to towering peaks, winding rivers and welcoming pubs, this inviting cottage is the perfect bolthole for reuniting with friends and families. Sleeping eight across four rooms, and with cosy spots for your canine companions to snuggle up in, adventure the days away before returning home to get comfortable and enjoy time spent together. Bubble away your evenings in the relaxing hot tub whilst you gaze out over your verdant surroundings with a glass of something cold in hand.

Roll up at this welcoming home from home and make your way into the kitchen to stock up the cupboards with your provisions and local produce. Spacious and light, spend time perfecting your flavours to serve up to your eagerly awaiting fellow guests. Underfloor heating will keep your feet warm as you slice, saute and serve up a storm, and the breakfast bar is a perfect spot for a quick break and a cup of tea. Plate up in the pretty, adjoining dining room, or take dinner outside for an al fresco evening basking in the last of the sun. Spend time relaxing in the garden or cosy up by the wood burner and put your feet up in front of the TV. A great space for leaving muddy boots and leads, the utility room houses a handy fridge/freezer so you can prepare picnics ahead of adventures and pick them up after lacing up. Four tranquil bedrooms invite weary heads to drift off and dream. One sits on the ground floor and has an en-suite wet room, whilst the remaining three lie on the first floor. Children can enjoy fun-filled sleepovers in the bunk room and the family bathroom invites you to start the day with a soak. There is ample on-site parking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

When visiting the Brecon Beacons National Park, picnicking on peak tops is a must! Pack your rucksack and travel 11 miles to climb the highest in South Wales, Pen y Fan. Cribyn and Corn Du are also an 11-mile journey from home so you can complete this trio and reward yourselves with marvellous, magical views and a tasty snack. Closer to home, wander to the bottom of the garden (taking care of little ones) and paddle in the River Senni which winds its way past this dwelling. For more waterside walks or even some sailing, paddleboarding or wild swimming, head 16 miles east to Llangorse Lake. Not only is Llangorse the largest natural lake in South Wales, but it is also home to the only Crannog in England and Wales.

Absolutely brilliant cottage for a trip with a family of 7 and a dog. Very well equipped and the owners were super helpful and friendly. Great location for access to Brecon Beacons. The hot tub was fantastic and we were pleased it was covered as we had a bit of rain. Would recommend this place.

Lovely cottage in a great location. It is well equipped, family focused, and spacious, with some key amenities for families with small children. There is currently no stair gates for very small children, but hopefully something that could be sorted on request. Fab stay, and wonderful outdoor area - would definitely stay again!

The Old Factory House is a treasure. It met our needs perfectly. So many bathrooms, all of which are well fitted (the wet room downstairs was a life saver for our father who uses a wheelchair).
