Lovely cottage with everything you need for a week away. Two good local pubs within walking distance and good local takeaways too. Near M4 to get to Cardiff or Swansea. About an hour away to get to the lovely beaches around the Camarthenshire and Pembrokeshire coastlines.

This was an ideal location for exploring South Wales. It was very comfortable, finished to a high standard, very well equipped, and the welcome basket was a generous gesture.

Perfectly placed cottage which was very clean, cosy, comfortable and well equipped. Although in the grounds of the owners house we did not feel like we were intruding or being spied upon. Very close to two pubs serving excellent food as well as other local amenities. Highly recommended.

We had a very friendly welcome to a beautifully designed and thoroughly equipped cottage, and it proved to be a great base for a week in this gorgeous part of Wales. We enjoyed trips out to Brecon ... but also loved relaxed evenings tucked up in the cottage. High recommend.

Great cottage in a convenient location. only a couple of miles from the M4. The cottage itself is excellent and just the right size for a couple. The raised lawn at the back of the cottage was visited by a number of different birds and playful rabbits.
