Cantref Coach House has recently been tastefully converted to an extremely attractive and comfortable cottage. The great beams, old style doors and  windows and the oak floor boards have been hand crafted using locally sourced old oak timbers giving the cottage a great deal of character and charm yet keeping a feel of modernity.  Cantref Coach House is set in the grounds of the Old Rectory beside the ancient twelfth century church of St. Mary's with views of the eastern Brecon Beacons. 

4 Stars because there is not a separate bath, otherwise the cottage has been awarded 5 Stars.

Cottage accommodation

      Service rating : Alles is goed gegaan. Alle informatie ontvangen die wij nodig hadden voor onze reis.
      Informatie over de eindbetaling goed op tijd ontvangen
      Reisinformatie is goed ontvangen, ook de informatie die wij hebben ontvangen was ruim voldoende
      Misschien 1 puntje, bij de reisinformatie, naar de cottage. Misschien een klein kaartje erbij zou handig zijn, voor mensen die voor het eerst in de Brecon Beacons op vakantie zijn.
      Product : Zeer goede woning, zeer schoon en goed onderhouden!!
      De eigenaren zijn zeer aardig en willen ook bij alles helpen, zover dat in hun macht ligt.
      Prijs / kwaliteit verhouding is boven modaal.
      Vooral de lekkernijen die de eigenaresse voor de mensen neerzet, is ZEER te waarderen!!
      Ligt in een zeer mooie locatie, dichtbij de Brecon beacons zelf, op loopafstand van Pen Y fan.

      Service rating : Booking was simple, although I would have preferred to see what the Changeover Day was for each cottage on the list which came up after the search. We only wanted a Saturday Changeover but I had to go into the detail of each cottage to find out the Changeover Day which was time-consuming.
      Product : The cottage was superbly equipped with everything you could possibly need, plus many other extras including a wonderful and very generous welcome basket. The owners were very friendly and attentive throughout our stay and were on hand to resolve any minor problems. We would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a quiet holiday in a beautiful area of Wales.

      Thank you for your lovely feedback, we're glad you had an enjoyable stay.

      Kind regards

      Service rating : Excellent, efficient service - all parts of the process backed up with confirmation emails and text reminders so nothing would be forgotten or overlooked. The directions to the property were also very clear. Brilliant service all round.
      Product : We had a fantastic holiday. Cantref Coach House is a beautiful cottage, without doubt one of the best we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean, wonderfully comfortable and so peaceful - we really could not ask for better. We had a very warm welcome when we arrived and the welcome basket was very generous - home made bread, jam, Welsh cakes... happy days! If you need a place to hide from the hustle and bustle of life and recharge your batteries, this is the place to stay. Thank you so much for a lovely holiday - we hope we will return soon!

      Thank you so much for your lovely comments.  We are very proud of our customer service and I will pass on your praise to the team.
