Lovely Stay

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage in an idyllic location. Located on a working farm with another holiday cottage alongside it. The owners were very hospitable and offered great advice on the area. If it had a washing machine and a better fridge and I would give it 5 stars

This cottage is all about location easily accessible but well placed for all sorts of holiday activity.On the doorstep of the Brecon Beacons, within minutes of a World Heritage site, 10 minutes from the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean and 40 minutes from Cardiff the capital city of Wales. Yet when you return to our cottage your back in the peace of the countryside without a stressful journey down endless lanes we are very easy to find!
