Hard to imagine a cottage in a more spectacular location in the park. Very well situated too for exploring. Our dog loved it there, and the bed was extremely comfortable!

A cosy little cottage, which we found clean and well presented. The location was perfect for exploring the Brecon Beacons and the Wye Valley. The views from the front door of the property across the valley were stunning, and will stay with me for a long time.

Enjoyed a short stay on a quiet little farm with a great view south over the valley and Tretower court/castle. Sheep, lambs and cows in the surrounding fields plus a cool looking bull in the barn next door. The garden / patio is a really nice place to sit and enjoy the view and sun with an added bonus of buzzards and kites drifting past.

A wonderfully situated cottage with superb views. Very well designed to make the maximum use of the space, and lovely and warm. Spacious bedroom with comfortable beds, good en-suite.
