About Us

We would like to welcome you to the Far From Holiday Retreat website. Set in the very heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Far From is the perfect place to enjoy everything that this beautiful landscape has to offer. 

From hiking and walking, cycling to fishing, Far From is close enough to a whole host of activities and attractions – but just far enough away to allow you to immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of the Brecon Beacons.  

At Far From, everything we do is centred around taking care of our wonderful rescue animals. We focus on animals that are unable to be re-homed of working animals in need of retirement, who live out their days alongside us. 

Testimonials

Please see below for a small selection of our customer's experiences

We enjoyed our stay at the farm very much and our son (3 years old) loved seeing the animals. Felicity gave us a warm welcome on arrival and was happy to show us around the farm. The cottage is well situated for walks and bike rides in the Brecon Beacons with Bikepark Wales, Afan Forest and Cwmcarn all within 40 minutes drive. Very comfy bed in the big bedroom and plenty of hot water for a nice bath. When you look for a place away from it all, look no further.

We had a really memorable time at The Lodge and only wish we could have stayed longer! Set in an incredibly peaceful location, it was the perfect spot for long, undisturbed walks and dramatic views across the reservoir. We were greeted by a group of friendly hens and particularly enjoyed spending our mornings with the pony who lives on the paddock behind the property. The accommodation itself was clean, spacious and very well-equipped. All in all, it was very good value. Communication with Felicity and Morris was excellent

A gem in peaceful, beautiful surroundings. A fantastic place to get away from all the hustle and bustle of work life! Really pleasant and attentive owners who were able to direct us to lots of beautiful locations! We will be back!

Amazing location, stunning views. Felicity and Morris are so welcoming and hospitable. Mabel the sheep is great with people and the other animals were a pleasure to meet as well. What they are doing here, rescuing the animals whilst also opening up their home so that guests can meet them is such a lovely thing to do. Lovely people doing a fantastic job. A pleasure to stay!

The Lodge was gorgeous, it felt like a true break from everyday life. The views from the back decking across the forest range was beautiful, on a clear night the amount of stars we saw was unbelievable! It's location is brilliant for lots of stunning walks. The hosts we able to recommend places we should take a look at and they did not fail! Great accommodation for our dog also, a lovely touch to have her own bed and doggie blankets! Definitely a place to stay if you want to unwind and walk your socks off

This property in the centre of the National Park is a gem. It's got character and style, set in the beautiful Welsh hills. The view over to the reservoir is beautiful. The property has been really nicely decorated, it's super clean and the beds are really comfortable. We couldn't recommend this house highly enough.
