Cantref Coach House

Cantref Coach House has recently been tastefully converted to an extremely attractive and comfortable cottage. The great beams, old style doors and  windows and the oak floor boards have been hand crafted using locally sourced old oak timbers giving the cottage a great deal of character and charm yet keeping a feel of modernity.  Cantref Coach House is set in the grounds of the Old Rectory beside the ancient twelfth century church of St. Mary's with views of the eastern Brecon Beacons. 

4 Stars because there is not a separate bath, otherwise the cottage has been awarded 5 Stars.

  • Customer Comments

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cantref Coach House.

    It was very comfortable, and the care and attention to detail that went into it is very evident. The garden at the back is delightful and secluded.

    We were very impressed with the whole Brecon area, and intend to take another holiday there.




    Thank you. We had a great time, the cottage was beautiful, a very warm welcome. A few little issues which the owner was dealing with and did not bother us at all. Definitely go back there. And booking was easy, e mails responded to swiftly, very helpful, a lovely little website - nice to find not EVERY cottage in the UK is run by Sykes or cottages4u or whatever!! And as we can never quite do a full week hol at Easter it was good to find a website still willing to find availability for us  for odd dates. Will use again.

    Location was great, and there was plenty of information about the local area provided in the cottage.
