“Fantastic !”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed at Pentwyn Cottage from 29.12.15-02.01.16 with my husband and 22 year old daughter. The cottage was well-equipped, cosy and inviting. The Christmas tree and tasteful decoration gave us a warm welcome as soon as we stepped over the doorstep, despite the terrible wet weather. We could not have asked for a better place to stay to see in the New Year. Managed a walk along the canal towpath to Talybont-on-Usk on New Years Eve, during a brief respite in the weather during the morning. Had a lovely lunch at The White Hart, at Talybont and the wonderful landlady Sue gave us a lift back to Pencelli in her own car when the local bus failed to stop for us at the given time. What hospitality ! I would thoroughly recommend this well-equipped wonderful cottage to anyone whether for use as a romantic getaway or family break. The owners have thought of everything to make the stay special.

“Gorgeous place”
Reviewed 20 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I visited with three friends early this January. The cottage was perfectly equipped for us. It allowed convenient access to the rest of the Brecon Beacons. Linda and her husband were also very cordial.

“Beautiful Cottage in a Great Location”
Reviewed 15 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

We saw the other reviews of this property and thought we'd try it and very simple to communicate with the owners and book the cottage - I was extremely impressed at how quick responses came.
The property was perfect, a good size and just what we were looking for for our winter get away. Great farmhouse style kitchen and cosey lounge, the fact that the owners are happy for some dogs meant that we could take our little puppy with us and it was a great holiday for him. The only negatives for us were that we did struggle to find the cottage as there are no signs and it felt like we were going up someone elses driveway and the electric shower was a bit disappointing, but that's just our preference of good showers over a bath.
We had a great holiday and being close to the canal and many of the walks around Breacon was just what we wanted! It rained constantly whilst we were there, so hope to go back at a different time of year and see some sunshine.

“What a gorgeous cottage & location!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My husband and I spent a much needed break in the Brecons and it was my first time in Wales. I was stunned by how beautiful the area is and Pentwyn Cottage was absolutely lovely. We drove up the the lane to be met by a gorgeous farm cottage and a wonderful view of the Brecons surrounded by fields of sheep and ponies. The owners were on hand if we needed anything and were so friendly. The cottage had all the amenities we needed and we were lucky to have one of the sunniest and warmest weeks of the year which made it even better. I highly recommend this accommodation and we will definitely look to stay again. Try the Bear at Crickhowell for great food and also the cafe in Talybont on Usk for great sandwiches.
