“Heavenly home from home”

Stayed for 3 nights with our 2 dogs. The cottage is easy to find and sits neatly behind the owners house. The garden is huge with hammocks, fire pit and bench. Overlooking fields with grazing sheep. The house is equipped with everything you need including a lovely wood burning fire. Garden fully enclosed and their lovely dog Molly comes to greet you! Overall a fantastic stay with many long walks and national parks around. Was sad to leave but shall return again. Thank you Richard and Caroline for having us. X

“very confortable house with stunning views around”

The accomodation is well-equipped, especially when you are tall. It's an ideal place to stay with the dog as there's an enclosed garden and the river is nearby. The house is very clean and modern with very confortable beds. We have spent a lot of time in the garden as we took our breakfast over there and in the afternoon we enyoyed relaxing in the hammock.
The owners are very friendly and recommended us which places were worth visiting.

“Fabulous, tranquil, picturesque ..... why can't we live here permanently?”

Just spent a great week at the Apple House in Llyswen, slap bang inbetween the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons, with Hay-on-Wye just a short drive down the road.

Richard and Caroline, wonderfully friendly and helpful owners, have created the perfect get-away from the hum-drum of the rat-race. The property is presented beautifully and has everything you'd need on holiday.

There are so many activities and places to visit nearby that you don't have to spend much time in the car in order to find a variety of things to do. Alternatively, you can take it easy in the tranquility of the secluded garden and spend lazy afternoons lying in a hammock (or making a fuss of Molly and Cooper if you're dog lovers).

Apple House felt like a home-from-home and we really didn't want to leave!
