The cottage is lovely but goodness the roads in and out of the village are rather scary and because of the major road works on the A465 you definitely cannot rely on your sat nav! The locals were lovely and the scenery fabulous with lots of nice walks with the dogs especially along the canal at Gilwen. Highly recommended.

Beautifully equipped cottage. Everything we needed and of a high standard. Warm friendly greeting with a bottle of Prosecco and sweet biscuits. Thank you for that.

We had a lovely time at the cottage which was very clean and comfortable and steeped in history. Everything was catered for, including the dogs. The village was delightful and the locals were very friendly, especially the key holder and neighbour who was particularly helpful due to road closures.

Lovely little cosy cottage. Very homely with lovely welcome treats on arrival. The key holder is extremely helpful and a font of local knowledge. There are even lamas in the field behind. W will hopefully be back once the weather improves to enjoy all the local walks.

Lovely week in Wales, cottage was well equipped and comfortable, nice to have the fire to keep us warm, it's well located to the main road so easy to travel around and visit places, great place for dogs lovely front garden and a little inclosed one to the rear, parking for up to two cars

Reviewed by Alison, 2nd February 2018

It is a very nice cottage inside but the many steps leading up to the front door and its general location made it difficult to get to and to make visits from. The fact that the A456 had massive road works along the area nearest the cottage of course made matters much worse while we were there.

Reviewed by Maike, 29th December 2017

We had a great stay. The cottage was really comfy and the host went the extra mile with a very thoughtful welcome package for us and our two kids. The location is ideal if you want a rural setting and tons of peace and quiet, as well as for visiting the Brecon Beacons, Blaenavon and other South Wales sights.
