My family spent 7 nights here in January/February 2018. The cottage was clean and cosy and sheets and towels were a very good quality. The beds were all very comfortable. The Wi-fi worked well. The kitchen was well equipped and staying in to cook was easy! Although the owner, David was away communication was good especially when we discovered the fridge was not working. Hugh, David's son-in-law was extremely friendly and helpful but the fridge could not be fixed during our stay. This made life difficult for us as we had to shop daily for supplies and a lot of pre-purchased food we had bought with us, had to be thrown out. Another night, the boiler broke and there was no heating in the evening. Thank goodness for the endless supply of logs for the wood fire as we would have frozen to death otherwise. Once again, Hugh tried hard to help us but I guess these things can go wrong in such old properties. Although it was frustrating, it did not ruin our stay and we would recommend staying here. The area is lovely, with plenty to do and the Brecon Beacon National Park is stunning. Hopefully that fridge was fixed or replaced before the next guests arrived!!
Beautifully renovated cottage in the grounds of (though not overlooked by) stunning stately home. The cottage is modest in size but spotlessly clean and has everything you need. Incredible views of the Welsh hills form all rooms.
Plenty of walks straight from the front door for all ages and abilities. Make sure you visit the thatched hide at the lakeside, and the impressive village church.
Our dogs were welcomed by the owners family and the resident dogs. The groundsman was really friendly and informative.
Having 3 dogs we always carry our own 'animal' vacuum cleaner and mops etc, but it is still difficult to find somewhere that accepts all of us, and with such genuine warmth. I will definitely be going back.
This is a beautiful conversion in a very quiet and scenic location. We stayed early January so really appreciated the log burner, the Christmas tree was a nice touch too. The owner was very helpful and we visited two of his recommendations - the Mill at Talgarth and Ghurka corner. Both excellent. We were also supplied with a highchair and travel cot for our 8 month old baby which was very useful. We hope to come back to enjoy the splendid isolation and explore the stunning scenery again.
We stayed as a family and we had a fantastic time. The cottage is lovely with everything we needed, and we found some great walking in the local area as well as a fantastic roast at the nearby Castle Inn. The hosts were very welcoming and very kindly gave us a tour of the main house which was fascinating. I truly recommend this place, my Dad (who is hard to please!) has asked if we can come back next year- no higher praise than that!
We stayed at The Saddlery Cottage for 5 days at the end of July and we loved it! The cottage is beautiful, the beds are so comfortable and the environment is idyllic. David and his family were really helpful and friendly from my initial enquiry through to the end of our stay and what was lovely was how close they were if you needed something but how remote from everything you also felt - a perfect combination! I would really recommend this cottage and we are hoping to visit again next year.
Stayed here with my family for a week in July. The accommodation was superb and suited all of our needs! The grounds were stunning and beautiful to wake up to.
There are a number of lovely pubs in the area and plenty of places to visit.
The owner could not have been more helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed without being intrusive.
I would highly recommend this beautiful house and would most definitely return.
