This was perfect for us. Very cosy. They welcomed us on arrival and allowed us to bring our dog. Ideal location for the Brecons and would recommend the Waterfall Walks for spectacular views, but leave yourself at least 5 hours. Has beautiful views!

We stayed in Glas. Location for our needs. Car is definitely necessary, we liked that most things we wanted to do were within a half hour drive. It's at the top of a steep hill but this was ok for us...easy to find even in the dark. Log burning fire-kept us cosy as we went for a quiet NewYear getaway.... More

We stayed here for one night on our way through the Brecon Beacons. It was an ideal base to explore the area. The cottage is very cosy with all the amenities you could need. The only negative is the noise coming from the upstairs cottage but that didn't stop us having a fantastic sleep.

Stayed here for a few days, couldn't ask for a better place, lovely cottage, picturesque views, perfect hideaway. Great walks nearby, ideal for couples and families. Only criticism is that mobile phone reception is very poor. Will be returning for another visit soon.

This was my second time staying at these cottages this year. The view is spectacular of the valley between the hills. The owners are wonderful, accommodating and laid back. The 17th century cottages are beyond charming with just the right amount of rustic and accommodation. We stayed in Merlyn and had a downstairs kitchen, table and living room. Upstairs has... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, beautiful surroundings, set at the end of a lane. We stayed in the studio which was lovely, a really good size compared to others we have stayed in before. We went out exploring the surrounding woodlands before ordering in a takeaway although there is a kitchen in a cupboard, it has no oven which... More

Thankyou so much we stayed in melyn on a two night break and was perfect. Cottage was clean and beautiful, kitchen was great. Amazing beds sooo comfortable! Views were charming and so much to do in the area, all the info was there in our cottage so we had plenty to do. Friendly cats!!! Will 100% recommend.

We stayed in the Glas studio for a couple of nights with our 6 yr old and infant. I had stumbled upon it whilst looking for last minute accommodation for our short stay in Wales. I was utterly delighted with it. The apartment is part of a large building that is flooded with flowers, which I imagine gives additional privacy... More

We booked our room for two nights but only stayed for one because of the location of this place. It is in a residential neighborhood,up a narrow road. There was nothing of interest in the immediate area and we could not find a decent restaurant nearby. However, the unit itself was quite nice and the property was lovely, with a... More

The cottages are situated at the top of a hill, giving access to beautiful views, and an easy drive from both the coast and places of interest in the Brecon Beacons. The cottage we stayed in, Arian, was just the right size for a couple, and had all the amenities we needed. We met the owners, who were lovely -... More
