Brecon Beacons 4 star converted coach house. Peaceful location, panoramic views. All the comforts of home including log burner and good WiFi.
Vacation Home hosted by Valerie
2 Guests . 1 Bedroom . 1 Bathroom


Aberyscir Coach House is in the hills of the Brecon Beacons South Wales. It was the coach house for the rector of Aberyscir and sits behind our Victorian Rectory. Now converted into a comfortable single storey holiday cottage for two.

Aberyscir is a tiny hamlet just 2.5 miles outside Brecon, your nearest town for shopping and restaurants. There are uninterrupted views of Pen Y Fan, our tallest mountain, and the surrounding range. The river Yscir runs just below the property and you are surrounded by our fields where native breed sheep graze in the summer months. Our chickens give you free range eggs which form part of your welcome pack. Cradoc golf club is a short distance away and trout fising is available on the Yscir.

The Brecon Beacons National Park can offer a wide range of activites and places to visit for everyone young or old. To mention just a few:

Walk in the hills or stroll along the Brecon and Monmouth Canal.
Visit a coal mine or a Welsh gold mine.
Try riding, canoeing, caving or star gazing, the park has Dark Skies Reserve status.
Visit gardens, houses, castles or monuments all with a Welsh myth or legend to tell.
Food, literature,music or agricultural festivals happen throughout the year.
Try a wide range of restaurants from the traditional Welsh Sunday roast to the latest prize winning cuisine.

There is a lot of information in the coach house to help you plan your time and as a Brecon Beacons Ambassador I can offer you more information should you need it. My husband is a volunteer warden in the park and knows quite a few of the paths as he helps maintain them and can advise on the most suitable routes.

The property consists of the following:

Double bedroom
Double bed, wardrobe and bedside tables. Wool duvet with cotton bedding or if you prefer sheets and blanket.
