The cottage had everything that was required to make you feel really at home. It is ideally located as a base to both walk and tour in the Brecon Beacons. There is an abundance of wildlife in both the area near the cottage and further afield.

Cottage is rustic, peaceful and quiet, idyllic setting. It was lovely to wake up to the sounds of cows and sheep in the fields. Very well equipped kitchen. Beds were so comfortable which was very welcome after a day of walking round the beautiful countryside. If you want a relaxing holiday in a gorgeous location I recommend this lovely cottage.

Lovely oldy-worldly cottage in the most magical setting with fantastic views. Lots of walks on the doorstep, lots of animals for the kids to interact with and only 25 min to Pen Y Fan- we had a great time and cant wait to go back.

Lovely cottage with great attention to detail. The beds were very comfortable and we especially enjoyed the fire on the cold nights. The location is fabulous. Hard to imagine how close we were to different attractions / towns because we could not see any other houses from the cottage. It was very private and isolated. I highly recommend!!

Lovely cottage in beautiful setting. Was perfect for our large family as we rented both cottages and there was plenty of space to congregate in the one cottage. Very friendly owners who were there if we needed assistance, but otherwise we did not see them. Altogether, I would really recommend these cottages.

Beautiful home with gorgeous views of the birds and sheep from your window. We couldn't be closer to wildlife. Beautiful farm setting set away from the main farmhouse. A real hideaway. All amenities provided for so we could even do some baking whilst we were there with the children on rainy days. I was particularly impressed with it's Green credentRead moreials, with a washing Eco egg provided, it has inspired me to look into what else I can do at home. Hide
