  • "Had a wonderful stay."

    The cottage was a great place to use and provided everything we needed for our stay. Talgarth is a lively and engaging place - even at the beginning of February! With cafes, pubs, shops and even a museum, it has enough to keep you occupied locally, and it is excellent walking country, but it also made a great base for frequent visits to Haye-on-Wye to shop for books.

  • "Such a lovely cottage."

    Cosy and well-equipped. Lots of great books and the cottage was really well decorated. I enjoyed the whole week away and it was a lovely base for exploring the surrounding area.

    So glad you had a lovely stay. We would love to welcome you again ! JO & Martyn x Property Owner

  • "We didn't want to leave!"

    Quirky, well-placed cottage in a friendly town. Felt very much at home with the well-stocked book shelves and comfortable beds. Appreciated the welcome pack after a long journey fron Devon.The shady plant filled courtyard garden was alive with insects and swifts flying overhead was a smashing place to relax in after long walks during the day in the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.

    It was warm and cosy and the 4ft 6in bed was very comfortable. We look forward to another visit.

  • "A neat and tidy little place licked out in tastefully muted tones of Farrow and Ball, carefully curated with an eye for the aesthetically pleasing, from beautiful oval Shaker boxes in the bedrooms , period ceramics, to delicately placed feathers on the mantelpiece, which I am guessing were gifted from the wheeling red kites we regularly saw above the bijou courtyard garden to the rear."

    A literary nod to nearby Hay-on_Wye with a broad selection of reading material for those wet and windy days, ranging from Alan Bennett's Talking heads to John Cooper Clarke. The characterful kitchen with its stone floor is kitted out with all the practical basics. The beds and linen were perfectly fine The bathroom (toilet/sink/shower } is very compact and does the job. Some points that would significantly improve the experience for us: Ramp up the lighting in the bathroom - especially around the mirror . Upgrade the telly to a Wi-Fi enabled flatscreen and relocate it on a hinged arm on the wall, so it can be tucked out of the way in the recess when not in use, thus releasing much needed floor space in the sitting room. We met friendly Martin, one of the pair of owners who suddenly appeared through an opening in the wooden fence when we were sitting in the courtyard garden, surrounded by potted Hostas and ferns. He seemed to require regular unobtrusive daily access to the adjacent barn while we were there - renovation work in adjoining properties I think. Overall, a really nice quiet and pleasant home from home.,

  • "The cottage is perfect for two (and probably one child) with a small, cosy living room, a spacious kitchen and a bedroom with one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in."

    We appreciated the extra heaters during some cold and rainy days. Every room has super nice touches by well picked vintage finds, making this place unique. The bathroom is tiny and a bit dark and one of the two small sofas could be more comfy but these are just minor details. Jo was always quick to respond and we had the chance to check in earlier than anticipated. Talgarth was a perfect base for hikes and we especially recommend the Deli just around the corner for take-aways.

  • "This was a great base to spend a lovely few days in the Brecon beacons."

    The rooms are quite small but in a cosy way, and I must say I thought the attic room was the perfect place to spend a few hours with a book - of which the cottage had many! Was a bit worried about leaving my car in the village car park but actually it appeared a lot of residents do the same and it was fine - walk to cottage was then just under 5 mins.

  • "The property is small but cosy and with a nice homely feel with a location which suited us really well as it was very central in the village with cafe, pubs and restaurants close at hand but in a quieter side street."

    There was water ingress into the kitchen during our stay from the heavy rain which the owners sorted very quickly and professionally.

The town has plenty to do in the way of gliding, pony trekking and plenty of walking opportunities through the well-known Black Mountains. The rivers Ennig and Ellywe run through the town, it is also home to the Pwllwrach Wood, said to bare a lake where witches were drowned many years ago. Talgarth has two gastro-pubs, a cafe and shops to enjoy at your lesure. The Tabernacle venue hosts many events such as musicals, plays, talks and book launches, the town really does cater for everybody. The popular town of Builth Wells is within easy access and is certainly worth a visit, as is Llandrindod Wells slightly further north.
