Customer Reviews

We had a lovely relaxing holiday. We saw the heron and the little dipper. Hope to be back again soon.

Diane & John Horns, nr Torquay, Devon

A lovely cottage in a lovely unspoilt village. Very well appointed with everything we needed and a very welcome bottle of wine! Loved watching the dipper from the upstairs, and a potential heron sighting. Countless red kites and lots of other bird life. Very friendly people - lovely river walks - and Battle Hill not to be missed for the superb views - but above all somewhere to come and switch off. A lovely week.

Charlie & Ariane with Cecile, Aurelie & Alexander (& Napolian!), Cattistock, Devon

How can this be Wales? A wonderful dry week! Day after day of walking up hill & down dale - Pen y Fan climbed by us all (even Woody at 13; part sighted & very deaf!). We loved the wild part of the N.P. in the Black Mountain area. The cottage is delightfully comfortable, beautifully furnished & with some lovely treats on arrival - thank you. So lovely to fall asleep to the sound of the babbling stream.

Nick, Ruth & Woodstock Sandan, Lincolnshire

Our first visit to this part of Wales & we will be back. Beautiful spot, beautiful cottage. Who could ask for more. Thank you for the wine & flowers.

Susanne & John Treacle & Flynn, Hatfield Heath, Essex

We think this is our 5th visit to the Mill House and , as always, we have had a wonderful week in this part of Wales. The weather has been so warm & sunny - made good use of the balcony! As usual we have had greawt walks, with breathtaking views, and had sightings of the tree creeper, dipper and a couple of ducks while sat (with glass in hand) on the balcony - what more could you want!! Thank you for the 'special' card and treats, and for the lovely new towels!!!

Chris & David Pedrick, Bovey Tracey, S. Devon

Really enjoyable cottage. Good touring base too. Thanks for bringing the Tour of Britain Cycle Route to Talgarth - great spectacle.

Andy & Sarah (& Aggie Thelbey), Devizes, Wiltshire

We had a lovely few days and thoroughly enjoyed staying in this comfortable cottage. Thank you for the very thoughtful wine and flowers.

Giles, Sophie & George Thomas, Upton Hampshire

We spent a week in this lovely cottage. There was wine and flowers to greet us, milk in the fridge, tea and biscuits and even treats for the dogs. The cottage has been completely modernized. It is comfortable and spacious and delightfully furnished. There is a balcony over looking the river and when the weather is kind you can watch dippers bobbing and grey wagtails feeding on the rocks. There are plenty of walks from the cottage (although the footpath signs tend to vanish just when you need them most). The bird life is amazing - you wake to a cacophony of birdsong from first light. We saw almost 90 species in a week. The cottage has wifi which is just as well as there is no phone signal (although there is a land line with an honesty box). The wifi is a bit dodgy and slow but better than nothing. The only downside is the lack of any pubs within walking distance. It's a 5 mile drive down a windy lane to Brecon for food or drink. But a small price to pay for a beautiful place
