About michelle martin

The Forest Country Cottages is owned and managed by ourselves Paul and Michelle Martin. Both of us are keen to promote environmentally friendly facilities and we have installed a biomass boiler, solar thermal and solar PV. Michelle is a vet and looks after an ever increasing number of animals at The Forest. We have a number of pets which include Libby our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, 3 ducks and 5 Badger Faced Sheep in the paddock. Organic produce is very important to the Martin family so we have free range chickens for eggs.

michelle martin purchased this cottage in 2007

Why michelle martin chose Powys and Brecon Beacons

Since moving to Kerry we have fallen in love with this beautiful area of Wales and for us and many of our guests it as a real gem of a place. Although in a quite and rural location we are close enough to a major to town not to feel isolated. Kerry itself has a wonderful community spirit and we have been made very welcome here.

What makes this cottage unique

The Forest comprises of 4 cottages plus a log cabin and a luxury bed and breakfast with 5 bedrooms. Its rural location makes it a peaceful and restful and a safe place for children as there is hardly any traffic. Forest Cottage and Forest Keep can be opened up to form a large cottage which is very useful for multiple families looking for a shared holiday. Other cottages are Forest Byre and Forest Lodge.

Dogs may stay subject to £15 fee, Wifi is FREE. Logs are £5 per basket.

"Thank you so much for a such a lovely stay in Forest Keep. The cottage was superb and we were delighted with the quality and finish of everything provided and it was great to have a downstairs room for my mother. Thanks again " Cathy
