“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed September 12, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed it. Phil and Karen were brilliant. They welcomed us with homemade bread and cake which were both delicious. They advised us on places to visit in the area. The Waterfall walk is amazing and well worth visiting and also the Brecon Mountain railway. The accomodation was very clean, comfortable and spacious with a lovely conservatory with superb views of the Brecon Beacons. Lovely big washroom with a walk in shower and everything you need in the kitchen. Karen kindly washed our clothes for us after we got a bit muddy on a walk which I thought was very nice. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area!

“Home from home”
Reviewed June 19, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Can't fault this accommodation. Had a wonderful stay. Phil and Karen very welcoming and only too happy to impart information on what to see and do. Lovely touch to bake us a loaf of bread and chocolate cake (both of which were delicious). Good central location to use as a base. Look forward to returning (hopefully in the near future).

We are staying here now for one week and almost about to end our stay. The cottage is exactely as stated on the site. Karen and Phill gave us a warm welcome with homemade bread and cake. They are very helpfull and available in case we need anything. We love the annex and the unexpected visits from the cows.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed February 23, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We only stayed one night at Sŵn y Gwynt Holiday Annex but wished we could have stayed longer. We were warmly welcomed by Philip and Karen who showed us our accommodation. The annex is beautiful - modern but cosy and immaculate. It had a brand new bathroom which we were the first to use. Everything worked beautifully! It had everything we needed for our stay. Karen had made us a lovely chocolate cake and a loaf of homemade bread. There was milk, butter and jam in the fridge. All delicious! Our son slept on the sofa bed and he was very comfortable. There was plenty of room for the three of us and the apartment would suit a small family or two couples. We would have liked to use the bikes provided but the weather wasn't too good. Next time!

There is a nice conservatory to sit and see the view (hidden by clouds unfortunately). In better weather it would have been lovely to sit outside with a drink looking over at the Brecon Beacons in the distance.

We had a lovely brief stay and we would thoroughly recommend Sŵn y Gwynt.

“The accommodation was very clean, warm and stylish and the hosts were very welcoming.”
Reviewed January 4, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

I wouln't hesitate to recommend this accommodation. Everything about it was excellent and the owners couldn't do enough for us. It is also a lot more spacious than the impression the photos give. Our favourite room was the conservatory with fabulous views to the Brecon Beacons - so relaxing. We wished we could have stayed longer.
