"We had a fantastic stay at Lichen Barn. The owners were very pleasant and helpful, and the cottage was even better than we had anticipated - we were very impressed with the facilities and sympathetic development of the barn. This property is in a beautiful setting and represents extremely good value for money. We'd definitely book it again if we were visiting the Brecon Beacons, and we'd definitely recommend it. The service we have received from your organisation has been extremely efficient, and we have no comments to make for improvement as there isn't anything to improve! Thank you very much." Linda
