Reviewed by Stephen, 3rd November 2018

The property was warm, comfortable and well equipped. The views are lovely looking down the valley. Crickhowell is the nearest little town and the people are welcoming and friendly. Excellent food at the Dragon Hotel. The property is well situated with plenty of walks nearby. We had a lovely time and will certainly book again.

Reviewed by Keri, 22nd September 2018

Beautiful area and views. Very comfortable and we'll equipped. As others have said, road to cottage is very narrow with not many passing places but we never met anyone coming other way! Spiral staircase is tricky with suitcase. It didn't put us off and we had a nice stay.
