Patrishow is a fabulous house and fully deserves its reputation as the best holiday cottage in Wales.

Wonderful cottage with amazing views, lovely walks on hand. Plenty of space so comfortable for all 9 of us. Both staircases are very narrow and not suitable for someone unsteady on their feet like my 80 yr old father. Make sure you take additional toilet roll as little available & a long way from the nearest shop, make sure you have all your food wRead moreith you! A lovely cottage with lots of character & charm, very tranquil & you felt you had left the humdrum of everyday life behind and could relax Hide

Patrishow is very remote but more than lives up to its reputation as the finest holiday cottage in Wales. Highly recommended.

This is a stunning property that really does deliver on the promise of getting away from it all. Highly recommended. Just make sure you take everything you need with you as the owners dont provide anything in the way if basic essentials, spare loo paper or toiletries.

We had an amazing week with family and friends at Patrishow Farm. It is secluded, peaceful and has stunning views. The house is rustic and is full of character but also has modern conveniences for comfort. Lovely walks straight from the door and Sugar Loaf within easy reach. We would stay here again. Patrishow Farm a very special place.

Fab location and views for a completely away from it all restful break. Very quiet indeed, with occasional sounds of sheep, owls and birds. Great cottage for a family get together.

What an amazing house in the most beautiful location. If you love being outdoors, peace and quiet and long walks then you will love it here. So many things to do in the area for everyone in the family. The village of Crickhowell is picture perfect and has some lovely pubs and local shops. Highly recommended.
