Had a great stay at this lovely cosy cottage for a week. Fabulous location for a getaway. Cottage was homely and comfortable. Lovely hill walking and great pubs and shops only a short drive along the A40. Fascinating UNESCO world heritage site on the door step at Blaenavon, thoroughly recommended.

Good location, comfortable inside, good facilities - utility room with outside access, washing machine & additional fridge very handy. We tried to use the open fire but the living room became smokey so the chimney may need some attention (owners informed). Outside areas were quite unkept, grass overgrown, weeds (not like photos online) which was quRead moreite disappointing on arrival. The A40 runs next to the property and the garden is not secure, dog owners note. I probably would not visit again. Hide

Lovely cottage in a location which is good to get to lots of places. The garden is not secure so not good for dogs to roam in as backs onto busy road so didnt use like I was expecting too which was a shame. The water pressure is very low in the property but apart from that all lovely.

Comfortable accommodation in a fantastic location just a shame about the road close to the perimeter which is fast and quite noisy. However, a good base for exploring the Brecon Beacons.

Lovely cottage, not great WiFi, if you have kids, grass really needed cutting, & patio needed sweeping. We could not let our dog in the garden off the lead, as the garden is not secure, & backs on to a 60mph road. We were unable to use Netflix for some reason, just got a black screen, & the DVD gave very poor picture/sound quality, due to scart leaRead mored connection. However very close (not safe walking distance due to road) to 2 very good pet friendly pubs, & a short drive to the Beacons. Hide

Great location, arrival and entry easy. Property as expected, cosy, fire was great. Enough space for a family of four. The separate utility space was useful for the dog to sleep, muddy boots and coats. Overall perfect for what was the childrens first visit to Wales and introduction to walking in the mountains.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Talybryn Lodge, cosy and well equipped. It might be a squash with 6 though. It's just off the A40, but not overlooked and any traffic noise was not a problem. Easy to get to many places of interest, walks, canals, waterfalls and good places to eat and the Wi-Fi and the smart tv a definite advantage with teenagers! GetRead moreting the optimum angle to get in or out of the driveway took a few days as angles a bit tight when reversing, but would recommend this cottage. Hide

Myself, husband, 2 young children and pooch throughly enjoyed a week at this beautiful little cottage set in a huge garden that surrounds property (ideal for children and dogs). Gates mean you can relax knowing that no one will escape!! Brilliant proprietors who are at hand on phone if you need them but don't bother you otherwise. Little Jem

This house was okay, but it is difficult to enthuse about it. Apart from the foraging ants in the kitchen and the tv aerial not working the worst thing about this property were the deceptive photographs used in the ad to make the dining area look considerably bigger than it actually was. In fact the table actually has to stay against the wall and nRead moreo more than 2 people can comfortably sit at it at one time. If the photos had accurately represented the property we would not have booked it. Hide
