Lovely holiday cottage, really comfortable and clean. The small secluded garden has the most amazingly beautiful views. Wonderful wildlife to watch from your garden chair and the stars on a clear night were the icing on the cake. Could have stayed forever!

This was such a lovely cottage, it has everything in it that you would need. It has the most amazing views. The cottage is well looked after with some lovely little touches! The information book that is left for you is a great help. Would definitely recommend it and would love to stay here again.

The cottage is in a lovely peaceful location with spectacular views. It is comfortable and spacious but the dog did have a problem with the spiral staircase. We were greeted with a lovely cake on arrival which went down really well with a cup of tea. We had a visit from the owner to make sure everything was OK (which it was). There are some lovely Read morewalks around and we would recommend Pen-y-Fan and the "4 Waterfalls Walk" at Ystradfellte, although they are both hard going! Hide

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.
