Red Cow House is a beautiful stone cottage set in the Brecon Beacons National Park. We are pet friendly ( at no extra cost ).

The cottage has a log burner, so you can put your feet up ( or paws ) and enjoy a real fire.

This detached cottage has beamed ceilings throughout with parts of the building dating back 300 years.

Outside you will find a large garden, a river and a kitchen garden.

Wildlife enthusiasts don't have to leave the garden to see the other residents of this area. Red Kites are always soaring above, while birds from the surrounding mature woodland help themselves to the feeders. At night you can here the owls calling to each other and see the bats circling the river.

If you enjoy stargazing, come to Red Cow House. The Brecon Beacons National Park has been awarded 'Dark Sky Reserve' status, only the fifth place in the world, and to celebrate we have provided a telescope for your use.
