Great location and good value for money.

Idyllic location, surrounded by fields and mountains; very remote and tranquil. Lovely cottage, equipped to a very high standard (dishwasher, washing machine, DVD player, reclining sofas, payphone, amongst other things). Owners were very helpful and accommodating. Would certainly come back here if we were looking to stay in mid-Wales again.

The cottage was lovely and the location also lovely. We had a lovely Lemon drizzle cake on arrival which was great. The DVD player was not working, which the farmer very nicely replaced the following day, however the replacement did not work very well. The property would benefit from Internet connection through the phone line that is on site.

We really enjoyed our week's stay here over the early May Bank Holiday. The cottage is well maintained, spacious, nicely furnished and well equipped. We walked and mountain biked from the cottage and there is lots more great walking and biking within a short driving distance. We loved the peace and quiet of the countryside location and the views ofRead more the hills. Nearby Crickhowell is a lovely little bustling town with everything you could possibly need in the way of shops, cafes and pubs. Hide

A beautiful retreat in the Black Mountains. Second visit as good as the first. Cottage very comfortable with everything you need and views of countryside from every window.

The cottage looked nice and comfortable on the website which looked really reassuring and when we arrived it did not disappoint. It was lovely. It was warm and homely and with a nice, fresh Drizzle cake waiting. The facilities were superb and we didn't want for anything. The wife even done all the washing prior to leaving so she was happy not to reRead moreturn from a nice break with a large bundle of washing. Basil the border collie had a fantastic time with access to the adjacent field. We will return. Hide

We were disappointed that thee oven was dirty. When turned on it caused a lot of burnt smoke and odour. we mentioned this to the owner who seemed to ignore our complaint. Overall we were happy. We wouldn't choose that cottage again as we though t the spiral staircase was dangerous but everything else good and perhaps we would pick one of the other Read morecottages Hide
