Stayed for three nights with our two dogs. This cozy cottage is well equipped and comfortable. we couldn’t have wised to be in a better location. High up to see the beautiful views with amazing walks on the doorstep and close enough to the town if we needed anything. Didn’t want to leave!
What an amazing find, very welcoming hosts who could not do enough for us.
The Cottage is very well equipped with log burner and central heating, spotlessly clean!
On the edge of the woods convenient for walking and hiking locally or exploring the Brecon Beacons. Our dog absolutely loved it there.
The views are to die for especially in the morning when watching the sunrise.
Very much looking forward to going back soon!
Thank you to Sandra and Chris.

Lovely setting and great views from the cottage.The location is good for visiting Brecon Beacon area: a local canal trip from Brecon, a walk and watch the boats at the cafe at Goyre Wharf and walks on Sugar Loaf .We also had days out to Aberfan( visit the site of the 1966 disaster- very moving), Cardiff, Portcawl, Barry Island( Gavin and Stacy) and down The Rhodda Valley ( visit Tom Jones birth place) with its rows and rows of former mining houses on the steep valley hillsides all the way down the valley.
Abervagenny itself has much to offer with its Castle Gardens and Linda Vista, local shops, supermarkets and eateries of all kinds.
However, cute and clean with comfy bed as the cottage is, we were without running hot water and no central heating for over a week of our 2 week stay.
This meant we had to make up the log burner nightly after a day out if we wanted warmth in the cottage in the evening( log burners do not give out instant heat and will take over an hour to even to start to warm a room) No running hot water meant boiling the kettle for a wash or to clean dirty dishes. We did this for over a week!
Personally I found the owners ( Chris) attitude very blase and uncaring, even indifferent.
We were not even offered any real apology or recompense for the inconvenience or lack of basic services that we had expected and paid for. Overall very poor client service and sadly disappointing.
We would certainly visit the area again but would not risk staying at the cottage again
