We stayed at this cottage for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed for our stay.
The owners, Sue and Tony, were always very helpful. Sue and Tony have worked hard on their garden over many years and with our visit being May/June time we were able to appreciate all the effort they have put in. The garden was for us an area of relaxation and enjoyment - we greatly enjoyed our games of croquet whilst taking in the marvellous views of the surrounding hills.
A canal walk is about 5 minutes stroll away.
The cottage is secluded yet not far away from The Heads of Valley road making it an ideal place to go visiting from.
The Annexe is situated up a private drive in 4 acres of grounds. The views from the garden are superb and there are walks directly from the property.
The owners are very friendly and are very knowledgable about the area and the Annexe has an excellent choice of walking maps and information about what is on locally and local attractions.
The accommodation is excellent, well equipped and sparklingly clean. It is very comfortable and well laid out. There were beautiful Welsh cakes waiting for us and fresh milk, tea, coffee, sugar etc.
There is plenty of parking and the gardens are beautiful.
This little place attached to the owner's house is perfect for a couple who want to get away from it all. The owner Sue is really welcoming and had the place nice & toasty warm for our arrival. Everything you need is here, kitchen well equipped, nice lounge with sky TV & good wifi, and the king size bed is very comfortable.
The cottage is near the Brecon & Monmouthshire canal for those who like walking on the flat & at the foot of the Blorange for those who like a hill challenge.
We will definitely be back
A very well appointed accommodation. One feels at home as soon as one enters . Sue is a very good host that receives you warmely and ready to help. We enjoyed some small cakes that Sue made. Delicious !
The kitchen is so well furnished that there is nothing that has not been thought of. Lovely TV for those who enjoy it. Good wifi and plenty of books and tourist . The bed is excellent for you to sleep like a log.
The house garden is very large and very well kept. But I missed a proper private garden for the cottage itself.
Once again had a fantastic time at Sue & Tony's cottage it's a lovely little place and they are so friendly and helpful will definitely be staying there again soon !!!
Would just like to say to Sue & Tony thank you for a fantastic weekend at the cottage it very homely and a lovely place too relax !!! Will definitely come and stay again !!!
We booked this rental directly with the owner via email. The booking process was really easy, the owner, Sue Corfield, was wonderful to deal with and she held the reservation for 15 months (I'm an obsessive type A advance planner) on the honor system (no deposit required).
The location of the cottage was perfect for touring this part of Wales. It is close to a main thoroughfare so no time was wasted driving on little lanes to get the day started; yet, it's set in about 4 acres of beautiful landscaped lawn on a quiet road with only three other houses. We spent one lovely evening in the pagoda drinking beer and enjoying the birds and flowers and would have done that every evening if the weather had cooperated.
The cottage is a well equipped, comfortable, charming one bedroom just inside the Brecon Beacons. Although the cottage shares a wall with the owner's house there is a separate entrance and several distinct areas on the property for relaxing outdoors so privacy shouldn't be an issue. We had even more privacy because the owners were away during our stay. We were given the key and orientation by the owner's daughter who lives nearby. Conveniently there is a big Waitrose market and gas station an easy, under 10 minute drive away (right off the main road).
We highly recommend this rental with one small caveat. The WiFi only worked in one small area of the house. This wasn't' an issue for us because we only needed the Wi-Fi to download emails and do an occasional internet search. But, if you needed to do some work while on vacation this might be a problem.
