  • "Our only complaint concerns the gross inaccuracy of your directions to the cottage, which caused us much waste of time, fuel and frustration."

    The directions should be amended to read: From the A470 about 5 miles south of Brecon, take the A4215 signed Defynnog (also signed Sennybridge & Heol Senni). After 2 miles take the road on the left signed Heol Senni & Ystradfellte. After about 1/3 mile the private road to Blaenbrynich is on the left.

  • "Thanks for a great holiday."

    We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location, access to the hills and footpaths, and have never played tennis on such a scenic court! We were very comfortable in the bothy and would come again.

  • "A small cooker would have been good, not just a micro oven."

    The shelfing in the kitchen for plates etc was a little high found difficult but I can only use one hand. Hope this is helpful. i

  • "This is a delightful cottage in a beautiful location, with access to the Beacons from the front door."

    It was such a pleasure to have the full-size tennis court for when we returned from our walks with a bit of energy to spare, and the bedrooms were very comfortable, with lots of hot water and showers that actually work. Having one each was a luxury we don't have at home! It is a bit of an exaggeration to describe the kitchen as a kitchen/diner, but there is a perfectly good table upstairs. Might be a struggle to get four people round it though. On the plus side, the stairs aren't steep at all and any reasonably abled person could manage them easily (we are in our seventies). The kitchen was certainly under-equipped - surely with a bit of re-arrangement there's room for a conventional cooker? But we were warned by previous reviews and we managed. The Visitor Centre (a couple of miles down the road) does good meals and excellent ice cream. The directions to the cottage are just plain wrong. Stupidly we had turned off our satnav and attempted to follow them. The turning off the 4215 is left, it isn't a private road, and it's signed Heol Senni. The turning to Blaenbrynnich is off this road, on the left. But all in all we were very happy at Blaenbrynnich and had a very enjoyable week. Thank you!

  • "Beautiful location, kids loved the whole experience of being away from the hustle of the city life, felt calmed and relaxed."

    Kitchen facilities are limited but we managed with a few eat-outs as didn't want to cook the entire time while on holidays.

  • "The kitchen is definitely not suitable to cook a proper meal in."

    You can either have the hob on or the main oven, not both, the “dining” bit is a very cramped metal breakfast bar and the kitchen utensils are extremely limited (no veg peeler, one small knife etc). It’s camping cooking, really. The bedrooms are very comfortable but the living areas are really not up to much. If you had bad weather and could not escape the house you’d struggle.

    Thank you for your feedback its important. We have taken onboard your comments and will look to make improvements, kind regards Sykes cottages Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous stay at Shepherds Bothy."

    The hosts made us very welcome and shared some very useful local information. The views are absolutely stunning with fabulous walks on the doorstep. The beds were extremely comfortable after a days activity. Access to washing machine and dryer was really helpful. My only suggestion may be to have a little more in the kitchen.
