A friendly welcome from the owner within an hour of our arrival to check everything was ok. We were left a chocolate cake and lemon curd :). The beds, bedding , cleanliness was all fine. Plenty of crockery, cutlery, pans etc Good washing machine and dishwasher which we made use of.The dining area was spacious and comfortable as was the main lounge - a nice space for us all to relaxThe outdoor area was lovely to sit and have breakfastThe showers could do with updating which is why I have given it 4 out of 5. Also the attic twin room was very warm

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.
