Well, where to start? Please read to the end of this review, because I don't want the beginning to put you off! If you are looking for a modern, squeaky clean holiday home in the middle of a lively resort - don't come here. If you want all mod cons and don't want to live like a country bumpkin -... More

this was the worst holiday we have ever had. We visited in september 2014, with our family including our disabled daughter and family dog. once we had settled into the accommodation we realized it wasnt disabled friendly at all and not even suitable for an elderly infirm person. there were steps throughout the house and no downstairs toilet (there was...

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay in our Farmhouse 4 months ago. The Farmhouse is advertised as a self catering farm, in the peaceful and tranquil Brecon Beacons. Our website(s) clearly show photographs and describe the property as a rural farmhouse, literally in the middle of nowhere – something that many of our guests appreciate and return for... More

We stayed in the hotel's cottage situated about 3 miles away. It's an old farmhouse in the middle of the beautiful Brecon countryside. The cottage was lovely with 3 spacious double bedrooms - one has a 4-poster bed and a huge, well-appointed en-suite bathroom. We stayed for a week and visited many interesting sites nearby.

Well, I don't know where to start! I think the title says it all. Without doubt the best holiday I/we(including the 3 dogs) have ever had. Driving down the track to the farm, I was begining to worry, why? Set in 27 acres of its own land, the farm house is in the middle of no-where! No need to panic... More

Thank you for your review. Im glad you liked the Farmhouse - with its seclusion it really is somewhere to get away from the hussle and bussle of life! Im glad you ventured to the Castle, and hope the Ghost Tour was "not too scarey". We look forward to your return. M!chael More

We were a party of 3 adults, 3 children & 2 large dogs. More than enough room for us all. The rooms are massive, the beds are all at least double (with 2 spare single matresses in the bathroom cupboard) and the gardens are endless.
