“Wonderful, home from home, cozy cottage”
Reviewed 16 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I felt instantly at home when I walked through the door of Ramblers Rest. It is warm and cozy and has that something that you can't quite put your finger on that made me feel relaxed and content. Thanks Christina for being a great host, look forward to returning sometime.

“Perfect for our young family”
Reviewed 11 November 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed at Ramblers Rest with our 5 year old and 3 year old back in Feb. It was perfect for us. Fantastic location down by the river with a short walk into town. The cottage was VERY clean and warm and VERY well kitted out. Little touches like plastic beakers for the kids and kiddies outdoor chairs made our two feel welcome and relaxed, and the Cider and biscuits on arrival made us feel welcome too! Having lived in Crickhowell I know how parking can be there but it was never a problem. The garden was ideal for our little ones, very sheltered and very, very safe and secure. Thank you Christina and sorry for the very late review (maybe I was trying to keep your lovely place a secret!!).

“Fantastic cottage in a fantastic town”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cottage is a lovely place to stay. A great garden, it's a perfect place to read in the sun. It's a very relaxing setting. We really enjoyed our stay. There's the slight issue of wifi but with a hotspot just outside the front door it's a very minor one.

“Total Perfection”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I stayed at Ramblers Rest for 4 nights but this was not long enough as it is without doubt one of the loveliest cottages we have ever stayed in. Its spacious, beautifully maintained, so well equipped there is nothing that has not been provided. The garden is beautiful and a real bonus to the cottage. The owners are a lovely couple and are there if you need them and if not you are left alone. If you are looking for the perfect accommodation in one of the loveliest towns in the area then stop looking as you will not find anything to compare to Ramblers Rest.
