<strong>Lovely Cottage with very helpful and friendly owners. </strong><br /> e hired an electric day boat on the Brecon canal. Enjoyed visits to the Big Pit and Caves and enjoyed driving the Mountain road for great views.

Family from N,

A great location for the views and walking and of course the excellent Shoemakers Arms. Janet and Hywel are perfect hosts very knowlegable and the cottage is perfect for a couple or family. Good outdoor facilities in the warmer weather

Mr C,

A lovely peaceful getaway, in a friendly village. All we heard whilst here was the babbling river and birdsong. There's also lots to see and do in the surrounding area, the Brecon beacons are beautiful and definitely worth a visit!

Mrs B,

We loved our stay in Abereithrin Cottage. The location is fabulous if you want to get away from it all. Outside the cottage all you can hear is birdsong and the sound of the nearby stream. The owners, who live next door, are lovely people and were extremely helpful. The Shoemakers Arms pub is terrific, with really friendly people, and is literally 70 yards from the cottage! We spent our first day walking the 4 waterfalls route in the Brecon Beacons, which was hard work but well worth the effort. On the second day we did the 25 minute trip to Brecon, explored the town and then hired a boat on the canal for 2 hours. We will certainly return at some point.

Mr D,


Located on the northern edge of the spectacular Brecon Beacons National Park, Abereithrin holiday cottage, adjoins the owner’s house in the quiet rural setting of Pentrebach, a  small hamlet including a country pub called The Shoemakers Arms where you can enjoy a home cooked meal, (book ahead).

This is a beautiful part of Wales with traditional market towns, stunning landscape, waterfalls, canal paths, castles and plenty of family attractions. The scenery here is both beautiful and diverse, ranging from rolling countryside and valleys, to the wild beauty of the waterfalls and caves. Wales is well known for its castles and perhaps one of the most dramatic is Carreg Cennen near Llandeilo. Brecon, Llandovery, Crickhowell, Tretower, Hay and Bronllys can also boast impressive castles.

The nearest shops and petrol stations are in Sennybridge, about 3 miles away. The traditional market towns of Brecon and Llandovery are both about 12 miles away. To the north is the upland moor of the Epynt military ranges. Within reach of Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark, a landscape sculpted by ice, then transformed by man, Porth yr Ogof cave system, Wales's largest cave entrance is within reach.To the south is Dan yr Ogof Caves, one of Wales’ premier family attractions and was also voted Britain’s finest natural wonder. The scenic Heart of Wales train line stops at Llandovery.

Cultural highlights include the Brecon Jazz Festival in August, the Hay Festival in late May/early June and the Green Man Festival held near Crickhowell in August. The Royal Welsh Agricultural Show in July and the Winter Fair in December both held in Builth Wells are highlights of the year for the agricultural community.
