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.
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.
Service rating : Although Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages initially didn't appear to be aware that the landlord had changed. Other than that, the property was excellent, the directions were good and we had a thoroughly enjoyable break.
Product : Lovely cottage, clean and comfortable and quiet. Would definitely like to go there again.
Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry for the confusion - we were aware of the change of ownership but it was down to an administrative error.
Many thanks for your lovely comments following your stay at Artist View. I hope we will have the opportunity of welcoming you back sometime in the future.
