Lovely cottage, clean, well equipped and comfortable. Views are outstanding and location great for accessing either the Brecons or going further up towards the Elan valley. We loved our stay here and couldn't have asked for a more peaceful location.

The cottage is tucked in a quiet valley with a really lovely view (constantly changing in the sun, mist and rain) and there are fantastic places to visit in every direction. A comfortable, homely place to stay and a chance for complete relaxation with only the next-door sheep for company!
