Bothying In Style, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book Bothying In Style now: from £184 per night If you’re looking for a peaceful escape to the Brecon Beacons with a few luxuries thrown in, this is the cottage for you. Set within 12 acres of estate grounds, there are plenty of walks for dogs and humans alike. If you’re seriously into your hiking, then the trails right from the cottage’s front door into the peaks of the Brecon Beacons (including Pen Y Fan) won’t disappoint. For the more sedate option, follow the flat canal path into the charming town of Brecon for cafés and shops. On returning, treat yourself to a complimentary massage at The Treatment Studio in the estate. The cottage itself radiates history from its old stone walls and low, timber-beamed ceilings. A little library of books and wood-burner in the living room adds to that away-from-it-all feeling. In the kitchen and living room, the flagstone floor is heated underfoot so there’s no sacrificing comfort for aesthetics here. Upstairs, the master bedroom comes with a glorious sleigh bed to send you off to sleep. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Spread out across a single floor, this bungalow is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway. The exterior makes use of the quarryman's slate, iconic to this area of Wales. Use this cosy bolthole as a base for exploring Snowdonia National Park, one of the last truly wild spaces in the UK. The village of Trawsfynydd is right in the centre of the National Park, close to a large reservoir where you can walk, cycle or fish. There are plenty to do in the wider area, from hiking Mount Snowdon to visiting the Italian-inspired Portmeirion village. Once you're back from your adventure, snuggle up in front of the TV with a glass of wine or enjoy a barbecue on the patio. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Squeaky Clean

Squeaky Clean, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book Squeaky Clean now: from £184 per night This cottage was once the laundry in a manor house built in the fifteenth century and the original castellated archway remains. This is where the large glass doors lead through to the interior, which has been given a contemporary makeover in recent years. Oodles of natural daylight and the bright yellow walls give the space a sunny disposition, while a standalone log-burner will keep you toasty during the colder months. The sleek white kitchen is plenty large enough to make a mess in, while the honey-coloured bathroom looks like it could belong in a spa. Speaking of which, there's a treatment room on the premises where guests can book massages, manicures and pedicures. Beyond the twelve acres of private parkland that surrounds the property, there are plenty of walking routes in the surrounding Brecon Beacons National Park and the quaint town of Brecon is only ten minutes away in the car. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

The Gatekeeper, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book The Gatekeeper now: from £135 per night Just outside the picturesque village of Llanfrynach, on the grounds of a grade II*-listed Georgian mansion, this one-bedroom cottage is all about rest and relaxation. This former coach house has been converted into a stunning contemporary space. Downstairs, the sitting room boasts sky-high ceilings and ten-foot-tall French doors leading out onto a private patio. The wood burner and deerskin rugs on the floor add a cosy feeling that's perfect for the colder months, while during the summer, you can throw open those doors and let the outside in. The cottage actually has two patio areas – one facing east and the other west – so you can always catch the sun no matter the time of day. Upstairs, the bedroom welcomes you with exposed oak beams and a natural stone wall that perfectly complements the black wrought iron bed frame. Step across the hall to discover a beautiful bathroom with a double-ended tub and a walk-in shower. If you can tear yourself away, there are plenty of leisurely walks and challenging hikes directly from your front door. There are options for all levels, from high peaks to gentle canalside strolls and everything in between. Despite the secluded location, plenty of pubs and restaurants, as well as a supermarket, within a ten-minute drive. After a hard day of hiking in the hills, why not treat yourself to a relaxing massage in the on-site treatment room. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
