About this Holiday Cottage

Craig Y Nos is a beautiful 16th Century farmhouse offering self-catering accommodation, set in 23 acres of land, just one mile up the lane from Craig Y Nos Castle Hotel.  The earliest parts of the farmhouse date to pre 1700 with later additions through Georgian and Victorian times.  Accommodating up to eight people the cottage offers excellent self-catering accommodation in the Brecon Beacons National Park.  Rooms are available on a bed and breakfast or self catering basis.  Dogs are welcome free of charge.


  • Spacious and comfortable sitting room with three sofas seating 8, a cosy fireplace with free logs available and Satellite TV with Sky Free-to-view channels (around 50 channels). 
  • A door to the right of the fireplace leads into a separate self-contained annexe accommodating additional guests.
  • Well equipped galley kitchen with a microwave, oven, a fridge and all self-catering essentials.
  • At one end of the kitchen is a utility room with a washing machine.
  • Hallway and entrance off the kitchen.
  • Separate dining/ breakfast area off the hallway with a stove.

Bedrooms / Bathrooms

  • Our cottage can accommodate up to 8 people in comfortable, tastefully decorated bedrooms.
  • Bedroom 1 - a luxurious Four Poster master bedroom with a spacious modern en-suite bathroom containing a shower and a roll top bath.
  • Bedroom 2 - a large double room with ample floorspace for a mattress sleeping children if required and attractive traditionally styled furniture.
  • Main family bathroom adjacent to the second bedroom.
  • Bedroom 3 (ground floor) - a spacious double bedroom backing on to the kitchen.


Breakfast is a 'help yourself' continental breakfast freshly prepared and delivered by the castle, though guests are welcome to have a full cooked English breakfast at the castle.


The cottage is approached by a steep farm track, to the front is a garden which is very suitable for children to play in and has a high 'wire' slide.  Please note that there is a stream a little lower down.  At the rear there is plenty of outside seating and dog running areas. The local award winning gastro pub is only a mile (down the track).
