“Small but perfectly formed”
Reviewed 27 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Crabapple cottage is just a few mins from Brecon and has just about everything you need for a few days away. Quiet, well furnished and clean, the hosts have done a great job in creating a comfortable and welcoming feeling. Will be coming back.

Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review and particularly for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy after a full week's stay.
All the best for the rest of your tour.

“Near perfect cottage retreat”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A wonderful little cottage - self-contained, peaceful and homely - in a great spot for exploring the surrounding area. In just a few days we enjoyed some lovely walks in the hills and visited several charming towns and villages. All in all, very relaxing and highly recommended. Nick was such a friendly and helpful host, whilst also being respectful of his guests' privacy. Hope we can return again some time soon!

“Delightful rural idyll”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This compact cottage is next to the owner's house, situated down a narrow but very quiet lane on a former farm. There is still farming adjacent to the property, with cattle and sheep.

The property consists of three rooms - a kitchen and dining area together with a living-room area with up-to-date televsion and DVD player. The kitchen is well equipped and has pretty much everything you'd need. The place was spotlessly clean and looked to have been recently decorated. The bedroom has a comfortable double bed and the bathroom is warm with a convenient shower and bath.

Car parking is off the road behind a gate, alongside the cottage.

The wifi is reliable with good speed. Mobile signal for both my wife and I was non-existent, but we could make and receive calls through a phone app connected to the wifi.

The geographical situation is excellent, with an outlook over fields and an area for sitting and eating outdoors. It is only around five miles from Brecon and the Beacons are nearby. Great walking country abounds.

For two people it's a lovely little hideaway for a break in a most picturesque area of Wales.

Nick, the proprietor, is very polite and helpful.
