About Lise Chesters

We bought Llwyn Llwyd farm in 2001 and moved our 3 children down from Watford in Hertfordshire with anticipation and excitement. We have never looked back. Originally from the welsh valleys, Pontypridd , I was keen to return to my roots. We are now very proud Grand parents and all 3 of our grown up children live nearby. Ian is a self employed Accountant and works from home and I am a qualified Nurse and work in the local hospital part time. Our dream was to own and run holiday cottages and we are so excited to have welcomed our first guests in the summer of 2012. We now run 5 rentals in the Brecon Beacons and happy to give you a personal quote. Sleeping from 1-15

The perfect new year break

  • 5 of 5

4 adults 4 kids and 2 dogs all stayed for a lovely short break. The cottage was absolutely perfect. Fairy lights and Christmas tree was a lovely unexpected bonus. The kitchen diner and the lounge very comfortable and spacious and had everything you need. Bedrooms again were comfortable and beautifully decorated. Going out the back gate and up onto the hills and being able to walk for miles and not needing to use the car was the icing on the cake. Will definitely being coming back and I would have no reservations in recommending a trip.

Eight of us stayed at Lise's cottage this weekend, and we had a brilliant time, starting off with a very warm and friendly welcome from Lise on the Friday evening. The cottage was perfect for us. Very good and spacious car parking which was handy as we had a large mini van. The cottage was very warm and cosy, and spotlessly clean and well maintained, and the layout of the rooms was great and user-friendly. Masses of hot water, and we loved the wood burner! The listing description was 100% accurate, and I would highly recommend the cottage to family and friends. We hope to able to come back to the Brecons for another walking weekend early next year and will certainly book with Lise again.

Ideal Family Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was ideal for our family vacation. The setup was great for our extended family of 8. Lise welcomed us upon arrival & provided all the information we needed. The driveway was a little tricky but not too bad. The views & walks were all we could of hoped for. We would definitely recommend this cottage & return in a heart beat.

A beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed out 3 days in the cottage. It is beautifully decorated and homely, spacious and so well equipped. It was rather damp and cold when we first arrived and the wood burner in the living room was a real treat and very easy to light and use. On the last morning it was warm and sunny so we ate breakfast at the outside table. The views from the top of the hill behind the cottage are just stunning.

Lovely big rural cottage

  • 4 of 5

Just back from a three night stay with three couples and a toddler. The cottage was great and there was loads of space for all of us. We loved the little extra touches such as flowers, wine and soaps The wifi also worked in the cottage! Our only issue was the adults having to keep the chatter and laughter down once the little one had gone to bed. Also great communication with Lise!

Great Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely lovely. The size was perfect for 6 adults two older teenagers a toddler and 4 dogs. Not once did we feel like we were under each others feet. The garden and walks from it were wonderful for the dogs. Ian and Lise provide everything you need for your stay so all you need to bring are yourselves, something to wear and eat for the week!!! They were also extremely helpful with anything extra we needed or any questions. Only negative was you need a little skill to negotiate the driveway but once you have been up a couple of times it gets easier. Also the televisions could probably could do with updating. That didn't matter to us as we were so busy going out or playing the plentiful supply of games we didn't watch it as much as some visitors might want to.
