We loved our stay here. Beautiful location and very peaceful. Its a great base for exploring the Wye valley and the Brecon beacons.

This is a lovely cottage in idyllic surroundings. Perfect for a couple (plus dog). Would recommend keeping your wellies in easy reach if it's raining as negotiating the path through the orchard and sheep can interesting. Would highly recommend this cottage for a peaceful getaway.

Wow, what a lovely relaxing and tranquil place to stay. We only wish we had booked it for two weeks. The layout was brilliant, bed comfy, cottage spotless. Ideal for a dog. We had ours on a long lead as he could get through the fences and gates and it is a working farm. Owner very helpful and interesting. Will stay again.

Beautiful little cottage in the picturesque Welsh countryside. Stunning scenery, close to a small town with everything you need but far enough away to feel secluded. Loved every minute of it.
