“Amazing!! Highly recommended!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We visited the cottage for 4 nights and had a amazing time! Diane is such a great host, when we arrived she had bought us some milk and loads of biscuits for the kids. She has literally thought of everything you would need whilst away. The hot tub was a plus for the adults and the kids they didn't want to get out! The park is a bonus the kids spent hours playing in there keeping them quiet . Diane also gave us vouchers for restaurants in the area for money off which was really nice of her. Will definitely be visiting again and will highly recommend her cottage to friends and family

Hi Katie, It was lovely to welcome you and your family with the children to our Cottage. It's especially encouraging to see our playground doing ''what it says on the tin'' - keeping the children quiet!! haha . One essential for mums and dads on holidays is a little bit of peace and quiet - chill time for the grown ups! Hope to welcome you all again as we loved your Liverpool accents! - and need to hear them again soon.
Our very best wishes to you all
Diane, Bill and all the 266 Team

we spent six nights at the property and we couldn't have asked for more. everything was as advertised. the hot tub was a joy after a day walking in the Brecon's. the terraced area was private clean a good size and next time I will bring my grandchildren who will love the play area. inside the property was Fab the beds were comfy and the rooms were a good size. the whole cottage had a warm homely feel to it. Dianne was really friendly and provided lots of information to make the most of our stay. I don't give praise lightly but from the 5 stars awarded I really encourage anyone wanting a mix of places to visit to stay here. within 40 mins of the front door we were in the mountains walking or in the distillery. at the beach in Barry Island. Tuesday good Market in Abergavenny again 40 mins.

Thanks for your encouraging review Paul. It was so lovely to meet you after we'd corresponded so well. I know you'd have liked to bring the grandchildren, but hopefully you'll have good timing for school holidays the on the next visit. Was thrilled to hear you'd enjoyed Barry Island, I know you're a Gavin and Stacie Fan! We all enjoyed Barry on Sunday School outings when we were kids, love the hot doughnuts and candy floss... ooooww and EVERYTHING that makes Barry Island special. We really hope to welcome you all again soon Paul. Best Wishes, Diane and all the "266" Team

“Our Honeymoon”
Reviewed August 30, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We came for our honeymoon as we had already had an abroad holiday before we got married 12.08.17.
We did not expect it to be this beautiful. It looks even better in person. Diane was amazing and lovely and really made it honeymoon feel. The hot tub topped off all the walking in the beacons we done during the day. Perfect way to relax. We didn't feel the need to spend evenings in the pub as we had everything we needed right there. The cafe over the road had some lovely food and George (a lady) was so nice and helpful. Definitely visit the beacons the Italian "dave" and the Indian up near freya fish bar. It was amazing! Thanks for everything. Will definitely return when we can. Jade and Chay x

Thank you for your special review ''Mr and Mrs Brooks'' yeyyy! What an exciting time for you both, we were so privileged to host you for your Honeymoon. Thank you for mentioning the local cafe, Indian and Italian Restaurant, our local business also appreciates a good report. it's an encouragement to them also. We certainly do hope you will return soon, there's so much to do and see in South Wales and I'm sure the ''Beacons'' will call you back.

We came to 266 totally and utterly stressed, and boy what a beautiful surprise we got, the pictures certainly dont do this place justice. The owners were there to greet us and what a wonderful welcome we received. We feel they thought of everything, from leaflets and email info about everything to do in and around Aberdare and South Wales, places to eat.. The owners surpassed themselves giving so much wonderful helpful information.. 266 is central to everything you need for a wonderful stay.. We loved the jacuzzi every night, and the beautiful log fire.. Our 8 year old daughter fell totally in love with her own private play area in the garden..The house was spotless and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. We cant recommend this house and the owners enough.. They found out it was my birthday and made it extra special. They also helped us out with a wheelchair which was so kind of them and a great help.. Diane and Bilgin really go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need to have a great stay.Above and beyond the call of duty.. We cant recommend this place enough and we'll be back.

“Amazing cottage with perfect hosts”
Reviewed July 22, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed in the cottage for 3 nights and it most definately wasn't long enough!! The cottage was much bigger than expected well equipped with everything you could possibly need, really tidy and very clean throughout, the beds are very comfortable and bedrooms really spacious.
We wouldn't have asked for better hosts Diane and her husband are 2 of the most friendly bubbly and loving people I've ever met and definitely made us feel at home. We will definitely be returning for another stay soon! Thanks again Diane!

“Lovely house, great hosts”
Reviewed June 10, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

266 is a lovely holiday house in a location near loads of amenities and lovely places to visit. The whole house is well thought out with loads of added extras that you don't get in other places I've stayed - really good wifi, access to tv and films, extra blow up beds for kids, you name it they have got it! The outside space is so well though out and the hot tub and play area make it a wonderful place to stay for both adults and kids. Diane is a great host who really goes out of her way to help guests out, we were here for my sisters wedding and she really made it possible for my family to enjoy with all her help - above and beyond the call of duty! Thank you!
