“Wonderful”
Reviewed 18 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Diane greeted me and showed me around. The cottage was clean and inviting and very well serviced. The hot tub is a huge selling point but there is much more to the cottage than just this. A full kitchen and very comfortable beds, plenty of off road parking and local shops to boot. I had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay in this gem in the valleys :)

“A perfect bolthole in South wales”
Reviewed 25 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Diane and Bill made us very welcome to our new home, (for the week).
The cottage cannot be faulted. The design of the accommodation is very well thought out and it is extremely practical & comfortable. It is set in a good location and there are many attractions within extremely close proximity. Diane has very thoughtfully provided a guide to the attractions, and i think that we would need a year to visit them all!
i cannot recommend the cottage, (and the owners), highly enough and will definitely be back.

“Quaint cottage that is clean, tidy and has everything you need.”
Reviewed 10 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

When we arrived Diane was there to greet us, she was very friendly and took lots of time showing us where things were. Not just in the house but in the local area too, walking us through the information folders.
The property was very clean and tidy. The bedrooms were very nice and roomy. The area itself has something for everyone be it food or activities. If you don’t want to go out you can chill by the log fire and relax in the hot tub and BBQ your own food. We were down for a relaxing weekend with friends and partners with a day planned at bike park wales, plenty of lock up space for the bikes at 266 too!
We will be returning to 266 as there is plenty to do and we didn’t get chance to do as much as we liked last time as I spent 2 days in hospital to to the inability to ride my bike properly ;)

“Great Accommodation - Fab hot tub”
Reviewed 7 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Diane was there to meet us on arrival and went through how to work TV, cooker and hot tub, she was perfect hostess.
Accommodation great, hot tub fab after 11 mile walk in Brecon Beacons. Beds very comfy as needed good night sleep after all the walking.
Great location for walking and if want to do gorge scrambling-this fantastic but extremely cold and needed to wear 2 wetsuits.
Ate in Brewers Fayre-it was ok but did eat in The Red Lion, Penderyn which was fab, only 10 mins drive away but need to book.
Definitely recommend
