Just perfect for a large family with absolutely beautiful scenery all around. The house is very comfortably furnished and has every facilty you can need. The garden is very spacious with plenty of room for games and relaxation. Very well planted with a nice mix of wild plants, perrenial cultivars and lovely trees. Brecon just less than 10 minutes dRead morerive away with supermarkets and plenty of shops. Nearby walk to the top of Allt Yr Esgair well worth the effort with great views from the top. Hide

Perfect quiet location and ideal accommodation for our group of ladies on our first visit to the Brecon Beacons. Plenty of outdoor activities in the vicinity, good local pub, Brecon a short drive away. Views from the house stunning, very relaxing and lots of wildlife. External door from kitchen needs attention as difficult to open.

This was a very comfortable property, very cleverly designed to take maximum benefit from its position and the fantastic views. With plenty of space in the communal areas, we never once felt cramped even though there were 11 adults staying there. Excellent value for money.

This house has good and bad points. Its very comfy - nice settees and beds and lovely views from the upstairs living area. Showers are fantastic and hot water plentiful. Big tv in lounge. Kitchen well equipped but lacking sponges to clean crockery and only a used piece of Brillo pad left despite lots of non stick pans! Also to note there is no log Read moreburner or orchard and the bbq is unusable as encrusted with previous peoples food. No welcome pack or condiments so need to bring everything. Hide
