    We were a little hesitant following some of the reviews about damp. The cottage is over 200 years old and yes showing signs of damp, but no smells at all. The owners were very welcoming and answered any queries promptly. The cottage is lovely, we visited with our 4 children (aged 10-15) and had plenty of space. Beds were comfortable and bathroom was big. 2 log burning fires were lovely but not needed as the heating was more than adequate. The cottage is based at the back of the owners pub, with plenty of grounds for the children and a surprise of a mini zoo which the children loved, absolutely loved. Hot tub also very useful. The kitchen has everything required to cook. Cottage also has a dishwasher and a washing machine. If you like walking, then plenty available - even walk to the highest waterfall in South Wales which is stunning - it's a jaunt so only advisable to walk if u don't mind walking up and down hills for over an hour each way - but very scenic. 20 minutes drive to the beacons national park - -again a lovely place to visit. A spar just down the road for anything that's needed or big supermarkets 10 minute drive. We would def look to stay again and don't be put off by the reviews of damp - it isn't a problem.

    great location and the hot tub was good. What let this place down was the beds that were very cheap and saggy and half the lightbulbs were missing so you could hardly see anything, not great for winter. For the price I would expect a comfy bed. They have scrimped so it negates all the advantages

    Quaint, 'away from it all', well equipped cottage in a lovely location with views of hills. Animals on site and hot-tub makes for a very relaxing stay. Lovely, friendly & helpful owner.

    This cottage really didn't live up to expectations. From the strong smell of damp to the dirty toilet and everything in between it really wasn't a great place to stay. The floors were so think with hair we had to buy a vacuum cleaner whilst there to try and tidy up a bit. We were staying as a family, and had planned to use the three bedrooms, but had to put both children in the same room together as the room with bunks was very damp and we worried about their health if they stayed in there. Our bed, although looking good, was actually very uncomfortable. As was the sofa and chairs in the living room. The bath has no shower attachment to enable hair washing at all. We need up having to get a large jug to try and rinse clean. The floor covering in the bathroom is also coming apart. Probably something to do with the lack of bath mat. We booked a cottage with a washing machine and tumble dryer, turned out it was a washer dryer, however nothing I could do would get the dryer part to work. Very irritating given I like to wash on holiday to keep in top of things. The kitchen was well fitted out with oven, job microwave etc. However nothing was clean. Another major disappointment was the hot tub. We only ever stay in cottages or lodges with tubs. It's our luxury when on holiday. However this wasn't a luxury this time. All previous places have told us not to worry about chemicals as they sort it and also make a point of telling us its all fresh and they change the water for each set of guests etc. However I doubt the water had been changed in this one for a while, it. Smelt and looked quite grim. We were also given no instruction on use etc like most places. The cottage has potential, it just needs some proper attention and eye for detail. Unfortunately I will never see it as I certainly won't be returning.
