“Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location, so well equipped for children”

Having just stayed in the Lower Bullpen for a week whilst we went to the Welsh Show, I have to say the cottage was wonderful so clean and well equipped and the added addition of the small park was ideal for us having 4 young children. I will definitely be going back and would fully recommend this to anyone, the owners Bryan & Fiona were so friendly and made our stay fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended

“Fantastic Farm Stay”

The Bull Pens is a fantastic place to stay. We stayed at the the Upper Bull Pen and it was beautiful. The cottage is extremely well decorated and maintained and they have everything there. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. The main attractions for us were the wood fire place, the hot-tub and the BBQ. Fiona and Brain and very friendly and extremely nice people. We did not where to go and what to see and they gave us detailed information about everything. But the best part of trip for us was the tractor ride with Brain. It was very exciting and educating at the same time. We had a 2 year old kid with us and she thoroughly enjoyed the stay as well.

just got back from staying at The Bull Pens had an absolute wonderful stay. Fiona and Brian are such wonderful hosts...the house is beautiful and well equipped, the view stunning :) so much peace and on a clear night you can almost count the stars :) we had traveled 6 countries in 20 days...and coming to the bull pens felt like coming home...all i would recommend guest is,do not forget to carry some food or you would end up emptying Fiona and Brian fridge like we did hehehe.... also we all would like to thank Brian for the wonderful ride up the hill we have some lovely memories for little Eva.

“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

What an absolute delight this place is!
If you are looking for peace and quiet in a rural setting then this is it. The pens are newly built to an extremely high standard and everything inside has a very luxurious feel. Plenty of cutlery/crockery and loads of space. We couldn't think of anything they didn't already provide, even down to handwash in all the loos and dishwasher tablets!
The nearest town, Brecon, is about 15-20 mins drive away through some of the most breathtaking scenery i have ever seen. There you will find a large morrisons supermarket and lots of other little shops.

“Stunning Accommodation & Views”
Reviewed 24 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Had an absolute fabulous three night stay in the Lower Barn with access to the hot tub and would definately return again. Away from it all break would be ideal for artists, studying and total relaxation. The owners Fiona & Bryan are so lovely and live next door and respect your privacy but are friendly and contactable if needed.
