We have enjoyed our time here. The house is very comfortable. The surrounding area is beautiful. We visited the Sugarloaf, Pen y Fan, the Walnut Tree restaurant and rode horses at Brecon. A visit to Hay on Wye was worthwhile for books, tapas and a walk along the river.

David and Sue Aston

We've had a wonderfully relaxing week in your comfortable home and found it an excellent location for all the places we wanted to visit so thank you!
