Mr B,

This little cottage touched us with its rural charm and beauty offering peaceful and quiet rest in the heart of Welsh farmers’ region. We spent a week there and truly love it. This location offers close access to lovely woodlands areas with amazing views suitable for walking, running or mountain biking, a good distance (40min) by car from Pen y Fan peak near Brecon town. The accommodation was clean and kitchen equipped with everything you need for self-catering accommodation. The owners take care of everything for your comfort. We met Ian, the farmer, who is such a charismatic person and being very helpful with local information. There is no wi-fi but very good 4G network cover. Big thank you to Wendy and Ian offering their cottage for holiday makers and make us feel home from the time you open the door.

mr A,
