Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Talybryn Lodge, cosy and well equipped. It might be a squash with 6 though. It's just off the A40, but not overlooked and any traffic noise was not a problem. Easy to get to many places of interest, walks, canals, waterfalls and good places to eat and the Wi-Fi and the smart tv a definite advantage with teenagers! GetRead moreting the optimum angle to get in or out of the driveway took a few days as angles a bit tight when reversing, but would recommend this cottage. Hide

Myself, husband, 2 young children and pooch throughly enjoyed a week at this beautiful little cottage set in a huge garden that surrounds property (ideal for children and dogs). Gates mean you can relax knowing that no one will escape!! Brilliant proprietors who are at hand on phone if you need them but don't bother you otherwise. Little Jem

This house was okay, but it is difficult to enthuse about it. Apart from the foraging ants in the kitchen and the tv aerial not working the worst thing about this property were the deceptive photographs used in the ad to make the dining area look considerably bigger than it actually was. In fact the table actually has to stay against the wall and nRead moreo more than 2 people can comfortably sit at it at one time. If the photos had accurately represented the property we would not have booked it. Hide

We loved this little cottage, great cottage for the dogs, we found the garden to be secure enough. The utility area is useful after a days walking to dump wet gear and wet mutts! The living room area is spacious and cosy. The kitchen is compact! Beds were comfy bedrooms bigger than expected. The only down is the main road is next to the cottage.

We had a lovely holiday. The garden is amazing and the dogs loved it. The lounge is comfy and was brilliant for sociable evenings. The location is next to none. If you have dogs, just check beforehand about blue green algae nearby, it was everywhere and so the dogs never managed a walk around llangorse lake, Talybont reservoir or in the surroundingRead more rivers, which is a shame. But its a common issue all over the country. Cottage was comfy enough, minus the beds-I'm used to memory foam at home. Hide

This cottage is very pretty and in a great location with fabulous views and good for getting into local towns as it is on the A40. It is quiet at night with just the wildlife to keep you company. It is fairly well equipped with 3 bedrooms and has a fireplace which would be lovely to use when it is cold. A fabulous base to explore the Brecon BeaconsRead more. Hide

Nice little cottage which gives the option of downstairs bedroom. Stairs are a bit steep especially if you have to negotiate them during the night to access the downstairs w/c shower room.

The cottage was easy to find and in an excellent location for exploring the Brecon Beacons. Brecon and Abergavenny are both very close as are a number of lovely villages. We had two spaniels and found the enclosed garden ideal for them. There is also a great walk from the cottage ( from the adjoining lay-by ) that provides stunning views after a shRead moreort climb. The cottage itself was lovely and cosy and had everything we needed. Was also very private. Carole & Ian Hide
