  • "The cottage was very good and the views spectacular."

    Only thing is it should be stated is that the access is up a very steep and narrow road. The toilet seat needs looked at it kept coming loose. The extractor fan in the toilet was noisy after a few minutes.

    Thank you Dave for your review. I appreciate your suggestions. so glad you enjoyed the view as we do. Andrew Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay very much."

    The cottage was comfortable, nicely furnished, had everything we needed. The conservatory with views east over the valley was especially appreciated, and the lawn in the garden. We also were very glad that the cottage stayed cool during some very hot days! A great area for walking: the Taff trail, the 'Alt', the walks from the top of the reservoirs up the valleys towards Pen y Fan etc. Talybont a nice little town, useful post office/cafe/shop and the Star Inn did very good meals.

    So glad you enjoyed Ty Twmp, Thank you for your feedback. It means the world to us. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed the stay, great remote location up a steep hill from the village with a couple of pubs."

    Some of the furniture is a little dated but it's warm, clean, comfortable and has a decent shower, and as its an outdoor activities location which is frequently wet and muddy you do not really want to stay in a 'showhome'. The only bugbears were no dishwasher (I loathe washing up each time!) and no outside tap for washing muddy things down. Will we return - highly likely.
