“EXCELLENT ACCOMMODATION, WONDERFUL SCENERY AND HOSTS”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed 60 nights in August/ September 2016. Hosts Alison and Stephen were so kind and helpful with advice on places to visit and many places to eat. The flat was self contained, with everything one needed, spotlessly clean with outstanding views from the living room.The area is open for all recreation, close to towns, beautiful country and beaches which we can vouch for having travelled to many of them. We recommend Llia Cysglyd to anyone wanting to spend time in a safe place with breathtaking views and amongst friendly people. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. Their neighbours were just as obliging. Altogether a holiday of a lifetime. Anyone wanting this experience would do well to book Llia Cysglyd.

“Five star annexe”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This cottage met all our expectations. On arrival the essential groceries were already in the kitchen, plus some welcome welsh cakes. There’s plenty of space for 2 people and enough crockery, chairs, etc to cope with any visitors.
We enjoyed the views across to the mountains, usually visible except on the worst of days.

We can recommend the New Inn for bar meals. It’s just a couple of minutes walk away. (closed Mondays)

Great place to stay the annexe had everything we needed and was in the perfect place to see all the things we wanted to.
There are so many waterfalls to see only a few miles away, we did a gorge scramble and Alison kindly dried are wet clothes for us, lovely people.

“Mrs”
Reviewed 12 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

What are lovely holiday we had. I booked this holiday cottage stay for my husband's birthday just based on the star rating and good comments that I saw on trip advisor. Guess what, got more than I expected and full five sparkling stars from me and my husband. The cottage is in a ship shape condition. Very very tidy, fully equipped kitchen, milk, bread, butter in the fridge, warm and pleasant interior decoration,  big spacious bathroom, power shower, nice bed and plenty of bedding with extra pillows, twoTV's, film dvd's, local info leaflets in abundance, absolutely stunning view of the snow capped mountains from the big bold French doors - WOW. The amenities are wonderful to have when on a holiday but I have to mention how amazing the cottage owners are.  Stephen and Alison have really put their heart into it.

We don't drive a car which is an inconvenience when it's comes to staying in this part of Wales. But we have been given loads of information about the local busses, trains to explore. Everyday we were given a to and fro ride from the train and bus stops. Stephen and Alison, thank you for your time, kindness and generosity. We managed to explore the Trehafod Heritage park hotel, Cardiff Castle,  The Gower, Caerphilly castle, Cyfarthfa museum castle, Penderyn distillery and the stunning waterfalls in Pontneddfechan, Nr  Glynneath. Llia Cysglyd is near to quite a few attractions and we made the most of it. We would surely come back again this year to explore more of beautiful Breacon's and the Welsh Valleys. Best part is the price is just right. Very affordable and the property has so much to offer. Must have self catering cottage holiday which is owned by the A-Team - Stephen and Alison, thank you.

Regards
Manish and Kiran

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 22 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This review is a tad overdue! We visited in early October as we had tickets for the rugby World Cup and wanted to stay outside of Cardiff, away from the hustle and bustle.

From the moment we booked the communication with Alison was great. We enquired about travelling into Cardiff and about local places to eat and Alison astounded us with an immediate offer of a lift to Aberdare train station and offers of booking tables at the local pub.

This was just the start of Stephen and Alison's amazing generosity. Words fail me when I try to describe just how lovely this couple are!

We arrived on game day and as promised Stephen was waiting to take us to the station and even offered to pick us back up after our return journey!!

The apartment itself is lovely! A home away from home with beautiful views! Stephen and Alison had bought us bread, milk and butter, left us two welsh cakes and there was plenty of tea and coffee. The apartment had lots of leaflets, guides and a guestbook which helped us decide what to do for the duration of our stay.

The four falls trail is a must if you enjoy the outdoors, and Stephen and Alison have lots of other recommendations which we will have to return to fit in.

We ate in the pub across the road and the food was great. We returned here for drinks a few times and the landlord and all the staff were so friendly, going out of the way to make us feel welcome.

We were in here on our last night to watch England vs Australia and were lucky to be joined by Stephen and Alison after the game for a 'few' strongbows and a lot of laughs! Perfect company and the perfect way to end our stay!

If you are thinking about staying here, do not hesitate to book. We will definitely be back! The apartment, location and views are stunning, but it was the lovely owners who made our break so special!
