Upper Bettws Farm Cottages

Lovely cottages in a stunning and secret setting

We are pet people and enjoy looking after our retired livestock on the farm and our elderly sheep dog  Lil. We are more than happy for you to bring any of your pets on holiday with you. We have lots of people who do bring their pets on holiday and have accommodated all sorts over the years including cats, parrots, ponies etc.


People especially love to bring their dogs and explore the wide open spaces around us together and our old dog loves to make new friends as well. We do not make any supplementary charges as can be the case in other venues. So why not bring you dog for a dog friendly holiday or any other pet you many have for that matter.

Very comfortable cottage with amazing views and exceptional walks close by, we all loved it (lazy terrier included!) The weather could not have been better, who’d have thought sunburn in March, in Wales! Would love to come back to this beautiful part of the country.

Lovely cottage, amazing view – the countryside around Paris will look VERY flat.  We had a very nice time here and we’d love to come again.

A lovely, cosy and comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting.  Have enjoyed country walking and driving into the mountains in search of the Red Kites and we even saw a few!

Best Of Both Worlds – Rest And Relax Or Out And About Best Of All We Are Pet Friendly

Driving out from Abergavenny up into the Black Mountains of the Brecon Beacons National Park you quickly reach the beautiful and secluded Bettws Valley one of the secrets of this special area – you won’t find it in tour guides.


A narrow road takes you up past Cap Glas and drops into the valley whose steep sides have a scattering of traditional properties – you could be back in Victorian times. The valley’s small hedged fields have some sheep and cattle and little else. This is the territory of buzzards, kites, foxes and badgers who thrive in the unspoilt environment.


Follow the only road along the valley floor and then turn down the private road that climbs up the valley side to reach Upper Bettws Farm and the cottages which nestle on the flanks of the Bryn Arw Mountain.


We are open all year for you to enjoy the scenery.

Upper Bettws Farm

Upper Bettws was first established in 1640 and some of the original building still forms part of the main house. As the name suggests it is one of the highest local farms at about 1000 feet and has outstanding panoramic views across the valley towards the striking Sugar Loaf – a flat topped mountain resembling an extinct volcano.


Sitting in the Welsh holiday cottage garden and looking out across the valley the quiet is broken by the bleating of distant sheep or occasionally shepherds chatting from across the valley as they go about their work.


You could well be in deepest Wales yet the charming and vibrant market town of Abergavenny is only 15 minutes drive away and the area is littered with fantastic restaurants and pubs.


The farm is also handy for numerous visitor attractions within the National Park and surrounding area which are within an easy drive on quiet roads.


The cottages have been converted from very old farm buildings with 2 foot thick stone walls and oak beams. These would have originally been used to provide accommodation for the farm’s livestock over the winter and to store hay.


The holiday cottages still have original features such as the oak beams but also have a range of modern adaptations to provide homely self-catering accommodation for couples or small families.


Each Welsh holiday cottage has a patio leading onto an enclosed garden with uninterrupted views over the Bettws Valley towards the Sugar Loaf Mountain.


Both holiday cottages can be hired together for bigger groups at preferential rates.


Dogs, cats and other pets are most welcome and stop for free.


Two stables are available to hire should you wish to bring your horses to ride the miles of hacking accessed from the farm.


Please note our Welsh holiday cottages are NO SMOKING.
