Here in Wales it is January and not February that offers up the most romantic day of the year. On the 25th of January we celebrate our very own patron saint of Love, St Dwynwen, who was said to have had her wish granted (by an angel, no less) that she should forever be at hand to help others through the trials and tribulations of love.
With that in mind, Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages have a selection of secluded boltholes that are just perfect for lovers looking to spend some quality time together. Here’s our exclusive St Dwynwen’s Day offer to get you in the romantic mood…
Why not book a stay at Mary’s Cottage, a cosy 18th century bolthole complete with roaring fire and private terrace. Not only will you pay just £346 for a 3-night stay over St Dwynwen’s Day weekend, you’ll have exclusive use of Tomos the Twizy, as well as a bottle of bubbly waiting for you when you arrive. http://www.breconcottages.com/eco-car
Having said that, Mary’s Cottage is by no means the only romantic hideaway on our books – book any one of the following for St Dwynwen’s Day weekend and you’ll get a bottle of bubbly thrown in!
Gardener’s Granary – Hidden along the beautiful River Wye, in a quiet smallholding, you’ll find this converted granary. Imagine just the two of you, sat on the balcony patio, watching the world go by. Sleeps 2, from £297 for 3 days. http://www.breconcottages.com/cottage-details/GARDEN
Danyfan Railway Carriage – A little out of the ordinary it may be, but staying here means really spending some quality time together, plus the entire carriage is completely off-grid with a cosy wood burning stove providing the warmth… Sleeps 2, see web for details. http://www.breconcottages.com/cottage-details/DANCAR
Pip’s Barn – Both stylish and chic, this traditional stone and slate barn is ideal for a low-key honeymoon. There are countless footpaths traversing the surrounding hills, and you can walk right out onto Sugar Loaf mountain. Sleeps 2, from £297 for 3 days. http://www.breconcottages.com/cottage-details/PIPSB
