    “Overall an enjoyable stay at a great location just inside the south side of Brecon Beacons national park.”

    There were just four of us and so we had plenty of room. The cottage is well equipped but would benefit from a bit of maintenance to keep in good working order. The neighbouring Penderyn distillery is well worth a visit if you like or would consider trying Welsh whisky. Issues 1. Cleanliness - the cleaning was only superficial with dust/debris still in corners and under beds, the stair carpet was covered in dirt/debris, the dining table separator covered all sorts of food and other debris. 2 ...

    There were just four of us and so we had plenty of room. The cottage is well equipped but would benefit from a bit of maintenance to keep in good working order. The neighbouring Penderyn distillery is well worth a visit if you like or would consider trying Welsh whisky. Issues 1. Cleanliness - the cleaning was only superficial with dust/debris still in corners and under beds, the stair carpet was covered in dirt/debris, the dining table separator covered all sorts of food and other debris. 2. The blinds and curtains had almost no effect on lowering the sunlight entering the rooms. After 6am it was almost impossible to remain asleep - I hate to think what summertime would be like. Inaccuracies 3. There are two pubs in the village, neither of which is within a 5min walk. The Red Lion (good food but expensive) is about 8min up a very steep hill. The Lamb Hotel is about 12min along the main road and has a small bar with well-kept and cheap beer and a friendly landlord (no food). Improvements 4. The mattresses in the room next to the main bathroom should be changed - it caused back pain to the person using it. 5. Even though there were only 4 of us, there were not enough quantity and variety of glasses to use. 6. The shed lock was difficult to open and should be cleaned/replaced. 7. The property would benefit from a proper shower. 8. Even though I am reasonably fit, I struggled to get out of the bath in the main bedroom. 9. Only five coffee capsules were left with the coffee machine. This made it only a gimmick as it could not be used each day. 10. The sliding cupboard in the kitchen would not close properly and made access to the plate cupboard annoying. 11. Some of the door handles/catches for the bedrooms and bathrooms need maintenance/replacement as these often stuck.

A second sitting room offers a retreat for quiet reading or catching up.

With five spacious bedrooms, two superb bathrooms and a delightful garden, you will be more than happy to return after lovely days out exploring this beautiful part of Wales.

The location in the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons) makes it perfect for walkers while others may enjoy a steam railway ride through the Beacons.

A visit to the Penderyn Distillery beckons, just down the road, while fishing and cycling at the renowned Glyncorrwg Mountain Bike Centre are close by.
