We stayed here after the Green Man festival and it was a very welcome retreat. I loved the back garden- sitting under the tree in the evening sunshine, looking at that stunning view is definitely good for the soul. The studio offers so much more than a normal B and B. The breakfasts were incredible especially because we could sit... More

this was just the perfect BnB for us, Booking and email communication was easy and efficient, On arrival we received the warmest welcome we have ever received. The accommodation is different in that it is a studio detached from the main house which gives a sense of independence yet served and pampered by Cathie who is a delight. The breakfast... More

We have just spent 4 nights at The Studio and were really pleased with our choice. It was very comfortable and the view from the room is stunning. Cathie could not be more helpful. She is a lovely warm hostess who cooks a delicious breakfast served piping hot and spot on time. The Studio is well stocked with tea/coffee/milk and... More

Having discovered the studio, I'm a bit reluctant to give it a good review in case there is no availability when I want to stay there again - and I know that we will want to stay there again! Cathie and Jeff give you the best of both worlds, the privacy and space we normally associate with self catering accommodation... More

Having read the reviews, I was really looking forward to my stay here. However, having just returned from touring, this was the least impressive of similar priced accommodation. There is no doubt, the location is stunning. Upon arrival you are greeted with a driveway you can't use, but the owner uses and it looks untidy. There are steep and narrow... More

We spent 3 nights here to go walking in the Brecon Beacons. We received a very warm welcome from Cathy and were instantly made to feel welcome. The separate accommodation is cosy and comfortable. The cooked breakfast is delightful and delivered hot to your door; with the bacon, sausages and eggs all being locally sourced. Cathy is a great hostess... More

The location of the studio is amazing with spectacular views and scenery. Cathie was a delightful host, offering us lots of helpful advise about the local area, and we had a delicious breakfast in the morning. Easily one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in.

The Studio is the ideal spot for exploring the Brecon Beacons. It's also the perfect accommodation for people like us who don't enjoy sharing a breakfast table! Having somewhere to sit comfortably in the evening and plenty of space for all our gear is a real plus too. We were made to feel very welcome and feel that the facilities... More
