  • The cottage was perfect for us - however I would like to say that we received a complaint from a neighbour about parking - although we parked where we were instructed to do - however the foot path needs to be left clear - so I would recommend that more detailed instructions are given as it wasn’t clear this was a footpath- Also the cottage felt pretty cold and musty when we arrived - probably not used for a while I accept - however this could have been rectified by having the heating on for a bit longer prior to guests arrival - The microwave worked fine but I noticed there was a small crack in the glass door inside - which when used turned white - probably recommend replacing this before it goes pop!


    “Overall a lovely cottage and we would use it again - shower was brilliant Thank you”

The open-plan lounge area has a large sofa for you and your partner to curl up on of an evening and catch up with your favourite shows on the wall-mounted TV, while also boasting feature forest wallpaper, giving the room a wonderful rural and countryside feeling.

There is also a dining area, with ample space for you to enjoy your lovingly prepared home-cooked meals, cooked to perfection in the modern and well-equipped kitchen.

While there is no designated garden area, there is a bench to the front, where you can sit with a warm cup of tea and simply delight in the hillside views.

There are a number of nearby lakes, with opportunities for fishing and other watersporting activities, whilst the Brecon Beacons National Park offers jaw-dropping waterfalls and avid kayakers.
