Fabulous location with amazing views, would highly recommend Ms V Fox - 25th April 2018
Very nice place, would go again.Alan from Cardiff - 21st January 2018
Absolutely amazing place to stay! The Asda delivery worked well too, as it's self-catering. Cannot recommend this accommodation enough!Bridgette from Surrey - 5th May 2016
Amazing, beautiful cottages and surroundings with great facilities. The owners made us feel so welcome and were always available and happy to help. Everything was perfect,Bethan - 30th November 2014
It was the one of the best times of our lives and can't thank Best of Wales and the property owners for the wonderful time we had

We found the cottage easily and impressed beautiful the cottage it is but most importantly how generous and kind the owner, Keri was. The accommodation was ideal for a nice break away and we are already planning on booking in the very near future

I'd strongly recommend booking for more than just the weekend - two days just flew by which was a real shame. The Usk & Railway Inn down at Sennybridge provided a lovely meal and the walk through the town was very nice.The Tanner Arms in the local village Defynnog - one we'll be looking forward to visiting next time.Louis - 19th November 2014
