Reviews

Lovely property, very helpful and friendly ownersMrs Amanda Baker - 18th August 2018
The property was well equipped and very comfortable. It suited our needs perfectly. We managed two barbecues while we were there.
Tips: Get good ordnance survey maps and a compass and you'll be fine for walking. There aren't many signed footpaths. Brecon and Hay on Wye - very nice towns.
Liz from Wade - 4th June 2017
