Full description
A handcrafted oak dwelling and a romantic railway cabin, blissfully set within the picture-perfect Brecon Beacons.

If you've always dreamed of stepping into a picture book for a fresh air-filled break that's as peaceful as it is beautiful, look no further than Crickhowell Railway Cabin.

Delightfully distinctive, Crickhowell Railway Cabin accommodation comprises two eco-friendly cabins. One is lovingly handcrafted from local oak and houses a lounge, diner and sleeping area, while the other is a restored railway cabin that provides innovative kitchen and bathroom space.

Sleeping up to 4 people, you'll find Crickhowell Railway Cabin perfectly positioned in 50 acres of private land within the breathtaking Brecon Beacons - a serenely scenic setting where you can remain undisturbed... well, unless the friendly neighbourhood donkeys decide to pay you a visit, of course!

Following your warm welcome from the donkeys, found grazing the neighbouring slopes (and often joined by a rescue pony), why not spend some time exploring your brand-new holiday homes, packed full of everything you need for a relaxing and reviving outdoor break? 

The oak cabin is a true testament to artisan craftsmanship; beautifully made and a pleasure to feast your eyes upon as you marvel at the way it blends with its natureful surroundings. You'll find a cosy living area that features a sofa looking right out onto the stunningly soothing scenery, together with a warming woodburning stove - ideal for warming those toes while you get lost in the pages of a good book! 

An oak table provides the perfect place to congregate and discuss holiday stories as you enjoy plenty of hearty feasts, though on sunnier evenings a fire pit and canopy area with comfy table and chairs provide the ideal setting for al-fresco dining with a view. 

When it's time to turn in, you'll sleep soundly under the stars in a hand-made oak double platform bed, dressed in Welsh blankets and fresh linen. Small-sized twin cabin beds are perfect if you're bringing the kids along, or for bigger kids why not simply pack a tent or a blow-up mattress?

Head to the railway carriage, and its welcoming, well-equipped open-plan kitchen and bathroom areas. A handmade kitchen area with gas hob makes preparing meals ridiculously easy, while a freestanding bath with plenty of piping hot water (not to mention a supply of fresh, fluffy towels!) is the perfect setting for relaxation, surrounded by romantic views of mist-covered mountains. With a flushing loo, you won't find any campsite-style composting toilets here, either!

Your accommodation is delightfully off-grid and perfect if you're kick-starting a digital detox; though still equipped with solar-powered USB charging sockets if you decide you need them!

With your location so stunning, and your accommodation including everything you need, you may decide not to venture too far away during your stay. Simply luxuriate in the views of rolling hills and mountains, perhaps taking a paddle in the babbling stream, or chatting with the donkeys for a while!

Yet if you do decide to travel, you can leave the car exactly where it is as you spend your days hiking, biking, or walking into the local town where you'll find plenty of friendly pit stops. 

Slightly further afield lies Hay-on-Wye, ideal for a day trip. Home to the famous Hay literary festival, you'll find it packed with independent shops... or for something slightly different, how about canoeing on the River Wye instead?

So for a magical, fresh air-filled fairytale holiday, head to Crickhowell Railway Cabin and get ready to relax!
