I stayed in Arian cottage for 1 night. The cottage itself was self contained, practical and had all the amenities needed. It was clean, quiet and provided just the tonic needed for a quiet relaxing night away. The under floor heating worked well and the cottage was warm and cosy. The log burner (when lit) made the cottage feel very...

Very disappointed. The shower door was Dangerous(other guests complained about this in the guest book) you had to lift it to close it, and the corner of the shower was dirty and the base was split. The Toilet Brush was a health hazard! completely disgusting. We had to lay on top of the Duvet of the bed because the mattresses...

We are unable to get spares for the power shower cabin so have been carrying out admittedly temporary repairs, but Dangerpous with a capital 'D'? We will be installing a new shower cabin in September when we have time for planned maintenance. We have never had a compaint about the comfort of the beds, in fact quite the reverse. Apologies...

We stayed in a studio apartment 'Gwynn' very compact and cosy with underfloor heating and comfortable beds. Not far from the Brecon Beacons national park. Fabulous views.to the front and a hilly rear. Great walk though.

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....

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...

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...
