“Long weekend in Wales”
Reviewed 16 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The cottage is ideally located for the National Park and Swansea Bay. There are stacks of places to visit and information for them is provided by the owners. The cottage is clean, comfortable and homely. The owners are very easy to contact and are pleased to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We would definitely use the cottage again.

“Lovely homely Cottage next to the river”
Reviewed 25 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The cottage was very well equipped and nice and cosy. It is right by the river which can be viewed from the bedrooms. Lovely to sit in bed with a morning cuppa watching the river and birds. Ystradgynlais centre is in walking distance for shops. We visited the Henrhyd Falls a short drive away very impressive and a lovely walk. As it was raining one day we also visited the Dolaucothi Gold Mines. Very interesting and something a bit different. We also visited Cardiff and the coast so a great short stay. So much still to see so we will definitely be back to stay and will book this cottage again.

“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Stayed here for a long weekend, this is a very well equipped property, everything you could need is there. The cottage is very clean and well maintained. Lovely private garden and in a nice quiet street. The shops in the village are ample for your needs and the locals are very friendly. Bus service is excellent to Swansea and Brecon and reasonably priced. Plenty of beautiful views on your doorstep.

“"Just like home"”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Booked cottage to visit family in area and was pleasantly surprised how well equipped and clean the property was, the owners had thought of every necessity. Information books/maps better than library. Games brought back childhood memories and gave us lots of laughs in the evenings. Due to problem with stairs I slept on futon(very comfortable) in living room and had easy access to bathroom.. The village has improved since last visit with "nic nac" shops and variety of eateries - very continental looking. Easy access to local caves, Brecon Beacons and other places of interest. Have already recommended to other family members.

“Great Cottage”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Lovely cottage, clean, well maintained. The cottage is in an ideal location for the Brecon Beacons National Park with everything it has to offer. Shopping facilities close at hand. The cottage had a warm and home from home feel about it, which made our stay all the more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend this cottage to our family and friends. Well done Wendy M.
