Fantastic long weekend at Beacons View Farm Cottages. We were 3 families and it was perfect setup for us with a family in each cottage. We all loved the hot tubs and the view down the valley is just spectacular.

Mr M,

What a fantastic place for a family holiday. A beautiful area with stunning views, comfortable cottages and all you need for a big family getaway. The hot tubs and games room were enjoyed by all and the owners very quick to respond, helpful and a lovely welcome basket of fresh baked goods provided. We all had a wonderful time and already looking when we can come again!!

Mrs S,

Fabulous hosts, wonderful location, stunning views, amazing space to spend time with family and friends.

Mr S,

The property is set in one of the most picturesque style location I think I have ever visited. A true luxury cottage break with a large amount of features for family or friends looking to get away from it all. The three cottages provide you a large number of room to make it incredibly affordable for a large group, 3 family’s or one large family with different cottages for the kids etc. Walks a plenty, locals shopping centre about 20 mins drive for the food shop and amazing access points to all of Brecon. The weather on our stay was 10/10 for heat and we truly used every inch of the complex for various outside games. Phone signal is non existent, so it is perfect for anyone looking to detach themselves for a break away from work and wifi is strong enough to stream movies in the communal room should you need it. Two different hot tubs provide a different aspect and heat depending on the time of day / temperature outside and allow you to select your vantage point. Kitchen fully kitted out with plenty of utensils and a BBQ outside provides great cooking facilities for all of the group. All in all my group had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. A++

Mr S,

This is the second time my family and I have visited Beacons View Farm Cottages. The name of the cottages is perfect as the views from the cottages are spectacular. The surroundings are peaceful and idyllic with lots of lovely walks on the doorstep. The cottages are clean and well kept and the owners are very accommodating. When we arrived, the owners brought us some delicious focaccia and some scones which were appreciated by everyone. A great time was had by all and it is perfect for children and dogs too. I couldn’t recommend the cottages enough and we will definitely be back again! Thank you.

Miss M,

What a wonderful place! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and it was a chance for our whole family, who are spread out across Wales, to meet up just as the lockdown restrictions were being relaxed a little. The accommodation was as described, with wonderful views, and family friendly facilities. The area offers excellent walks. We were well looked after by the owners who were readily available and responded to any problems immediately and appropriately. Should the opportunity arise, we may well look to Breacon's View for a future family gathering. Diolch yn fawr iawn.
