Mary's Cottage

This newly refurbished pretty little 18th century stone cottage is situated in the village of Llanfrynach in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons. An ideal bolthole for a weekend away, with the newly re-opened The White Swan now serving excellent food.

The pretty town of Hay on Wye with its bookshops and independent boutiques is 35 minutes drive away. Excellent farmers markets in Brecon, Llangynidr and Abergavenny, 30 minutes' drive.

    We stayed in the above cottage between 21 and 28th March. The cottage was lovely and well located for our intended walks and kayaking. The cottage was well equipped and we enjoyed the comfort of the log fire. The garden was pleasant and would provide a nice seating area during summer months.

    We had a lovely stay in the Brecon Beacons. Mary's cottage was lovely. We found it very comfortable. The garden was lovely and we even had breakfast sat outside one day in the sunshine. We found everything we needed. It was a shame there wasn't a lockable shed for our bikes but we managed ok. The pub down the road was also shut. It's a great location though.
    We had a great stay and thoroughly recommend the cottage and your company to others.




    Just to say we had a splendid holiday at Mary’s Cottage from 21st July.  It was very clean, comfortable and well equipped and anything missing was replaced immediately.  The staff in the office were very helpful and friendly. The garden was a treat in the sunshine.  If we return to Brecon we will definitely book with Brecon Cottages again.


    Thank you again for a lovely holiday.
