“Very peaceful setting - beautiful scenery”
Reviewed 7 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Very clean cottage with everything you need and Richard very friendly and non invasive which is important - their dog Mollie is also lovely as are the horses. Richard had a log fire going for us when we arrived and the every day supplies were great. Cottage is of a high standard and very comfortable although sadly we were only down for a few days. Having a king size bed is also a huge bonus from most other places that have only a double and the linen is prisitne and plenty supply of towels. The shower is powerful and decent size and also the luxury of a bath. The garden is private to the cottage and has a hammock and seating areas although we didn't get the chance to use it. Every window has a different view and all have good views. We will def us it again should we be back shooting in the area.

“Dogs and owners in perfect harmony”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A perfect place to stay in every way. 2 couples and 3 dogs had a totally stress free weekend. Beautiful location to explore from and after a walk up Pen y Fan what better than to relax in the hammocks in the garden.

We were looked after and left alone by the owners- who could not have been more helpful and welcoming.

We will be returning......possibly the best ( and we have stayed in quite a few) dog friendly accommodation ever.

Thank you.

“Everything you need”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was our second stay at Apple house in a year, so it's fair to say we like it here!
The cottage itself is beautifully and tastefully appointed, with all the home comforts you could need, whilst the garden is spacious and enclosed with fantastic views across the countryside.

The owners are as friendly as they come and can't do enough to help.
Also the location is fantastic - Close to Brecon and Hay on Wye, making it easy to get anywhere in Mid Wales and the Brecon Beacons,

If you are looking for a holiday in this beautiful area, do yourself a favour and stay here!

“Perfect family holiday”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just returned from the beautifully appointed Apple House with its' idillic views and will definitely be returning.

The cottage has everything you need from milk, butter, eggs and Welsh cakes on arrival to the welcoming owners who are keen to share their knowledge of the local area. The quality of the furnishings and attention to detail makes this place a home from home. Topped off with stunning "picture perfect" views from every window including the Black Mountains. Our 1 year old toddler had a great time wandering around the cottage and its' grounds (there is a stairgate at the bottom of the stairs and a play pen /stairgate that you can use upstairs).

The enclosed garden was a real hit with our border collie and we enjoyed a few evenings outside with the warmth of the fire pit.

The location is good with two pubs within walking distance. And a few more just down the road in Glasbury and Three Cocks. Ideal location for exploring the Black Mountains and the rest of Brecon, including castles, caves and forests.

All in all a fantastic holiday - there was so much to do that we couldn't do everything and so will have to go back!!
