Unique artist's facilities
The cottage's veranda makes the perfect location for visitors to sit and sketch or paint the view of the Brecon Beacons. The seasons and the Welsh weather will provide an ever-changing landscape.
Artist's View sits right in the heart of a very special landscape. Make sure that you visit Pen-y-Crug whilst in the area. This impressive hill fort offers a wonderful insight into the struggles of early Welsh people to defend their lands and the views from the site are breathtaking. Access is also relatively easy so even the least keen walker can take in the history and the surroundings without too much effort.

We had a great time thanks. Everything was great from booking to leaving today. Give our thanks to the owners as their property was lovely in a great location.
We had an absolutely fantastic time thank you and were amazed at the cottage, quality of the premises and general facilities. It was a real treat to stay somewhere so lovely and with such fantastic surroundings. The views were awesome and being able to see Red Kites flying over the fields each morning was spectacular. We hope to visit the cottage again at some point. Thank you for the excellent service, pleasant staff and value for money.
We enjoyed our stay at Artists View. The cottage is most comfortable and it was lovely and warm. As many previous guests have noted in the visitor book, it is well equipped and cosy. The views from the terrace are great, especially as we come from rather flat East Anglia. Lovely walks from the lane, up the hill and through bluebell woods. We came for the Hay Festival and it is a good location for visiting Hay, only half an hour away on good roads (once off the single track lane leading to the cottage!) Thank you for your excellent service.
