  • "Wonderful location on working farm, in a very quiet field far from main roads and with outstanding views of Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains."

    Excellent hikes can be taken from the site without needing car. Llangorse lake nearby with water activities. Comfortable shepherd's hut and friendly owners.

  • "Really nice place to stay, with a beautiful backdrop of rolling hills."

    The area is gorgeous and we had a great time horse riding at Llangorse Multi Activity Centre. The lake has a nice walk around it and there is a good route through the fields to the village. The farm is lovely, the setup is very sweet and the hut and kitchen are very clean. Roy and his family are such lovely people and their dog Jess is very friendly and came to say hello a fair amount :)) There are a few things that could be improved: - There was no recycling bin so we took ours home with us but would be good to have facilities on site. - The kitchen is overall well kitted out but could do with a ladle or two (as we struggled with serving food) and more knives. We had a wonderful stay and can’t wait to visit Wales again soon! :))
