It was our second stay at Hollyfield and we absolutely love it. We've stayed in a lot of cottages and by far Hollyfield is the best quality. The standard is just on a different level. The location and setting is fantastic. We noticed that it was already very busy for next year so have booked again for next year. Booking is very straightforward and we've never had any problems.
We booked the holiday cottage, Hollyfield cottage, due to the pictures on the website and were not disappointed. It is a lovely cottage, fully equipped with modern accessories, and ideally located for exploring both the Beacons and Black Mountains. Our Labrador, Poppy, thoroughly enjoyed the large garden and watching the nearby chickens. The caretaker, Atia, was most helpful, very welcoming, and kept the grounds of the estate beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were not surprised to find that it is fully booked for most of 2015 and intend to book again for 2016
The cottage was fantastic - probably the best place I've stayed in the UK. We'll hopefully be back there again sometime soon.
I had an amazing time; the cottage is beautiful and so homely. The owners/caretaker left a welcome basket containing milk, eggs (fresh from the chickens behind the cottage), bread and welsh cakes - it was a fantastic surprise and extremely tasty too! The wood burner with a basket full of logs was great and warmed the cottage up very quickly (I went beginning of November). The enclosed garden was perfect for my dog, it's a great size and he loved to stand and watch the chickens in the next field. I will definitely be booking another stay there next year!
Absolutely loved our stay at Hollyfield, we had high expectations as the pictures are stunning, and it's totally lived up to them. We fell in love with the place, ideal for us and our dog, fantastic walks and views. Everything inside is lovely, and has everything you need to feel at home. Thank you for helping us find such a gem!!
Service rating : Very straightforward and quick. Always booked online very easily
Product : We've been to Hollyfield three times now and we love absolutely everything about it and the Crickhowell area. This year the cottage was starting to show some understandable wear and tear which could be easily resolved. We really hope that Hollyfield maintains its high standards that set it apart from other cottages.
Thank you for your constructive comments following your recent stay which we will forward to the owner. We look forward to welcoming you for visit number 4. Kind regards Edwina
Service rating : Very easy purchase any questions answered quickly
Product : Light bright cottage in a stunning location..everything we could need
Delighted to hear you had an excellent holiday.
Service rating : Good website and quite easy to book. Only downside was needing to proactively make later payment. Would have been happy for this to happen automatically.
Product : Beautiful cottage in a fantastic setting with lovely garden space. This cottage is the perfect base to explore the Brecon Beacons and we would highly recommend it. Fantastic facilities, particularly in the kitchen - real pleasure to cook with Le Creuset pans! Lovely welcome pack was a nice bonus, and we would definitely book here again.
Thank you for great comments of the very popular Hollyfield. I do hope we will be welcoming you back in future.
Service rating : Very impressed with the service received from booking arrangements to details for the property.
I would recommend this company to friends and family.
Product : Very comfortable and with a clever and user friendly layout.
Some of the furnishings could have been more appropriate to the style of the cottage but the kitchen in particular was very well designed and all rooms were spacious.
The enclosed garden was superb, the dog spent many a happy hour enjoying the large, safe garden.
Thank you for your lovely feedback.
Service rating : The booking procedure is very straight forward, the best and quickest company that I have dealt with.
Product : Excellent location, lovely cottage, maybe the furnishings are not so 5 star quality and the television is quite difficult to operate. Saying that, it would not stop me booking again, overall we had a fantastic stay. You can not fault the location and Aita, the caretaker and his family, are some of the nicest people you could wish to meet, and of course, his dog.
Thank you for your great feedback following your recent stay at Hollyfield. We look forward to welcoming you back to the area again soon. Regards Edwina
Service rating : Excellent information provided and very easy to use service
Product : Beautiful cottage and location. Great welcome from caretaker and his dog! Wouldn't change a thing, perfect!
Thank you for your lovely response.
Service rating : Service from Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages was excellent as usual.
Product : The cottage was exceptionally clean and fully equipped, there was everything you would need for a holiday or short break. The cottage is gated so one of us had to walk down to the road to let the other in if we were off in separate jaunts, I'm not certain it mentions about being a gated property in the write up but it should. Very peaceful setting nice to be able to see the stars :-)
The under floor heating was very warm and constant which was great in the daytime and the water was constantly hot which was lovely but a little overwhelming at night for us and there didn't appear to be a way to turn it down.
Thank you for your feedback and constructive comments - I hope we can welcome you back to the Brecon Beacons in the future.
Kind Regards Ceri

Always good to be close to good food! Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Service rating : Cottage was excellent. Communication with company all by email. Would have preferred a letter of confirmation, but that's how it is these days! Have just booked another Brecon Beacons holiday with them, so that says it all, really!
Product : Lovely cottage, all excellent quality. Excellent view from living room - good for viewing sunsets.Comfy bed and setee, great kitchen and shower...the first time we have scored with all 4 in 20 years. Enclosed garden great for dog...but no signs of other pets having been in the property! Very helpful caretaker. The only ovenproof dish would have held a meal for 12...and it was a two person cottage and no grillpan were our only very small niggles, I'm sure if we'd asked for them they would have been found.
Thank you for your lovely feedback for Hollyfield. We look forward to welcoming you back to the area.
