Wonderful location for a family walking holiday. We visited Glasbury and Tal-y-bont as recommended for dog and family and had great days out. Crickhowell is lovely and the Bear a perfect dog friendly pub. The cottage was a perfect refuge after a full day of activity and kids enjoyed having their own space to watch movies.

This is a beautiful and comfortable home brilliantly located for a family and dog friendly holiday in South Wales. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and the welcome basket and fresh flowers were gratefully appreciated. We plan to return!
