Pet-friendly holidays in the Brecon Beacons, Wales
The Brecon Beacons is one of two national parks in Wales. It is a large fish-shaped region of hills and spectacular views in south east Wales with its tail trailing down into Pontypool and the tip of the tail fin in Hay-on-Wye. Holiday accommodation of all kinds is dotted about the region; cottages and pine lodges competing with hotels, bunk houses and B&Bs. It is a wonderful place to go on holiday with dogs and the holiday lets shown on this page all accept pets, some just the one dog, others tow dogs or more.
Holiday accommodation in and around this beautiful area of wilderness is shown. If you would like to leave your dog out in the garden on holiday, do check that the garden is fully enclosed and dog proof. Barn conversions are popular holiday lets in this rural part of Wales.
Because of its elongated shape and size, it becomes necessary to explore a specific section of the Brecon Beacons at a time, perhaps by following a planned route or because of an interest in a place or landmark. Red kites soaring in the heavens draw visitors to the village of Llanddeusant beyond which lie the long flanks of the escarpments of Carmarthen Fan. Trails are fainter here, a less travelled region so anyone coming for a walking holiday should bring a compass. The rewards of plentiful wildlife, mountains and lakes make the journey to the Brecon Beacons worthwhile.
One style of building is of flint decorated cottages, often with hardwood window frames. Other local houses may be whitewashed or brick and there are plenty of secluded cottages standing in their own private piece of land which is a popular holiday choice for some.
For people who prefer the hubbub of busy places, the big towns of Brecon, Merthyr Tydfil and Abergavenny may be good places to find holiday accommodation although most dog owners would prefer a more rural setting where country lanes and woodland are close by. Once you have experienced a Brecon Beacons holiday, you will want to try another, perhaps during a different season or in another Brecon location.
The mood of the moors and countryside appears to change with shifting weather. It is somewhere that you want to arrive prepared for all seasons and a sturdy pair of walking boots if you’re going to take to the hills. The eastern edges of the Brecon Beacons border the English counties of Herefordshire and Gloucestershire where there are some amazing holiday homes to rent. It could be very tempting to stay in Hay-on-Wye with the Brecon Beacons on your doorstep.
