The only down side to this property is having to leave! Everything is so well thought out, Helen the owner has put lots of thought into all of the amenities within the property - its spacious yet homely, pet and child friendly is almost an understatement we were made to feel so welcome with our dog and children, has the most amazing garden and surroundings, the hot tub is divine. I simply couldn't fault it! Thanks Helen!!
country location was wonderful and Brecon town 10 mins away, and fab hot tub.
plenty of stunning walks nearby.
We booked Swn Yr Afon for my husbands 60th birthday, staying from Friday to Monday. We were 7 adults and 2 excitable flat coated retrievers. And my goodness what an amazing place this was. We all immediately fell in love with the house, the garden, the facilities and the location. Our dogs love the water so to have a large enclosed garden with its own running stream flowing alongside was paradise for them. We also had our own personal paradise in this beautiful house which is spacious, warm and immaculate. Everything was first class, every small detail thought about. The dogs even got there own little beds and fluffy towels! The human beds I found extremely comfortable, the linen luxurious and the bathrooms modern and clean with relaxing showers. The hot tub was perfect after long walks. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need and more.
The location was also good, we went on some lovely walks, the brecon beacons showing us it's exceptional beauty. There are many dog friendly pubs around meaning we could have a lovely meal and have the 2 dogs with us - who were extremely well behaved probably due to the fact that they were shattered after all the walking.
I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone. We certainly fell in love with the place and will be returning again soon. Everything was just perfect!
This is truly a wonderful property, that you would not be disappointed in booking. It has a spacious kitchen / dining area making it wonderful to dine as a family, a cosy lounge with Sky TV, and the house is just so spacious, that even as an extended family group and 2 dogs, we never felt cramped. The bedrooms are spacious and luxurious with plenty of space for your belongings, the hotel style hangers and luxury bath robes, and spa slippers make it feel more like a 5 star hotel rather than a self catering house. Little things like the plug socket being near a mirror to style your hair, have not been overlooked, as well as supplying a hairdryer and hair straighteners - tiny things that do not matter to most, make the stay more comfortable - a real home from home.
If you have a dog in tow, there is no better place! An outdoor kennel with enclosed area, or just to take them down to the stream to play, plus the huge garden area, and even agility equipment!! My dog did not want to leave either. A huge dog crate was provided, as I can't trust my dog not to chew :) and the memory foam mattress was just ace, and she would just take herself off to it during the evening - testament that they are comfy!! An outdoor shower with hot water and doggy shampoo and conditioner meant that I could return home with a wonderful rhubarb-smelling pooch :) If you have a dog that runs off and can fit through hedgerow, you will need to supervise, as the garden is not fenced, this was not a problem to us, but having previously owned a houdini terrier, this would have posed a challenge!
For the grown ups, the entertainment cabin with large screen, Sky, and wood burner, was ace, and the hot tub was just awesome. The canopy above, meant we could enjoy it in a rain shower!!!
A lovely playroom with board games, puzzles etc. kept my 4 year old entertained.
The owner is lovely and nothing was too much trouble for her. She came out several times during our stay, and was super helpful. She really has thought of everything you need.
Weighing scales so I could weigh out my dog food, and corkscrew for the wine - there was nothing that even my critical side could find fault with :)
We will be returning Summer 2017, and can't wait.
A beautiful location, with fabulous dog walks, and the town centre of Brecon is a 9 minute drive away, so you can get all your provisions.
