An October holiday in the Brecon Beacons requires somewhere warm to return to at the end of the day. This property is ideal. It is well furnished, spacious and has free wi-fi. The location is very rural; car ownership is essential. Steps leading to the front door from the parking area would make access difficult for disabled visitors.
a quiet romantic luxury cottage on a quiet farm!

Excellent cottage , very well stocked for 2 people. Very comfy and warm!
Would be more tricky for 2 couples as bathroom,, loo an en suite to main bedroom.
family very welcoming.
Even the peacock displayed his tail fan for us twice in the week.
Fantastic Christmas Getaway !

Can not recommend this property highly enough - Great quality of fixtures and fittings and the best equipped kitchen, a couple of amateur cooks could ever wish for.
Being set on the farm with Skirrd Mountain in the background made a great base for walking and exploring the best the Brecons have to offer.

What a lovely week!

We had a very friendly welcome to a beautifully designed and thoroughly equipped cottage (at a very reasonable price too!), and it proved to be a great base for a week in this gorgeous part of Wales. We enjoyed trips out to nearby abergavenny, Blaenavon, through Golden Valley and on to Talgarth, Hay-on-Wye and Brecon ... but also loved relaxed evenings tucked up in the cottage. As an extra bonus the tiny village has an unpretentious Michelin-starred restaurant, The Walnut Tree, which serves extremely tasty, locally-sourced food. Any downsides? None for us but don't expect a local shop, and watch out for the peacocks! Only hesitation in our recommendation is that we don't want to make this so popular that we can't re-book!
A warm welcome to a lovely cottage

Our unseasonably warm and sunny week in the Black Mountains was more than equalled by the warm and generous welcome we received at this newly opened property. The cottage itself is well furnished and equipped, and well located for days out by car along the Heads of the Valleys, Black Mountains, and the borderlands along the Wye Valley. The walk up Skirrid Fawr is easily achieved directly from the cottage. There are a couple of very nice restaurants within a short drive from the cottage; but we found we had to go a bit further to find a pub. All this at a very reasonable price - highly recommended!
