Our second visit here for our family. A beautifully secluded cottage, clean and well equipped. Although we have yet to meet the owners Bertie is always on hand via text to sort out any issues immediately. We love the location, the walks from the house are sensational and the peacefulness of the location is fabulous. Did I mention the views? StunninRead moreg Hide

We had a lovely weekend away at Nantywen! The location was beautiful and the house was cosy. Bertie was very helpful upon arrival, and gave us a warm welcome. The barn is just next door to their family home, but you wouldn't know it - it was incredibly peaceful and actually reassuring to know the owners were nearby if we needed anything.

Overall a great location if you like steep walks and amazing views. Crickhowell was lovely and great for good local shops. Would recommend this cottage. The lane is single track for 2 miles so youre reversing skills are sometimes tested. Brecon is close and worth a visit as is the Coach & Horses for lunch.
