Our 2nd visit to Basel Cottage. Such a beautiful cottage, well equipped. Hosts Sue and Jonah are so friendly and welcoming. Visited Dinefwr – beautiful castle and grounds, Mumbles – lovely beach walk, Hired a boat in Brecon – lovely cruise along the canal. Always a pleasure to stay here. Back soon, love Julie XXX😀
Great week despite rain. Warmest of welcomes and comfortable cottage. Thanks, Sue and Jonah.
Our 2nd visit to Sue and Jonah’s lovely cottage. We love this place and what a good week of weather we have had!! We have walked every day – old favourites and new routes: Castles, Forts, Roman sites, not forgetting the Gin Haus Deli in Llandeilo and The Castle Hotel in Llandovery . We are booking in for our 3rd visit Sue!
Our 2nd stay at this fantastic cottage. Sue and Jonah gave us a very warm welcome and looked after us well during our week. The cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the log burner gave it an extra cosy feel. We have really enjoyed our stay over the New Year and will definitely be back soon. Thanks Sue and Jonah! X
Great lazy stay, enjoyed being snowed in for 2 days! Max and Boyce did not mind that the walks were shorter this time. Thanks again for the warm welcome and all the support. Already looking forward to our next stay. Diolch yn Fawr!
Our 5th stay at Basel Cottage has been wonderful! Always such a lovely warm welcome from Sue and Jonah, who really are great hosts! Brenie has had a peaceful few days away from the fireworks and we have had a relaxing stay too! We will be back! Best wishes and thank you.
This was our 1st visit to Basel Cottage and hopefully it will not be our last! It has been an outstanding base to explore the Brecon Beacons. We have stayed in many cottages in the past but this is by far the best and most outstanding one in which we have stayed. Sue and Jonah are first class hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Many thanks.
Our 3rd visit! Wonderful as ever, see you next time!
Thank you Sue and Jonah for a wonderful ‘welcome home’ after 3 years and for the delicious Cream Tea on arrival. Had a great time in the woods with the dogs and roaming on Pembrey Beach ( the dogs not US!) Hope to see you again soon!
Outstanding cottage in a beautiful area. Congratulations to Sue and Jonah on creating such a tranquil holiday home.
Once again we had a really relaxing time. Great welcoming tea. Dogs remembered you and enjoyed the runs in the fields. See you both next year. Thanks.
Thank you Sue and Jonah! We have had such a superb week in your lovely cottage – a real home from home! Walking, pre-history, castles – nothing better! We would very much like to return.
Many thanks Sue and Jonah for a lovely week in your wonderful cottage. The Cream Tea on arrival was most welcome. Charley really enjoyed her day with Jonah and we do not think she wanted to come back to us!
Thank you for a wonderful relaxing week. Everything has been thought about in this cottage. The cottage is homely and beautiful. NESSA 🐕 and the girls enjoyed playing in the garden and the woods. We will be back!
We leave Basel Cottage reluctantly. The kindness of our hosts will be a lasting memory as will the comfort and elegance of the cottage and the beauty of the surroundings. Thank you Sue, thank you Jonah, for providing all that makes for a very enjoyable holiday.
Thank you for such a lovely time at Basel Cottage. I love the thought of having all that ground, it has been such fun staying here, I do not want to leave! (Isabel). I hope we can come again to stay in your lovely cottage (Millie). We all loved your woods, cottage, bird table and the ‘mountains in the woods’ (Percy). We do not think that Bruce the Dog wants to leave!
We have had a lovely week at Basel Cottage. Thanks to Sue and Jonah for the warm welcome and delicious Cream Tea! We have enjoyed watching the birds and exploring the woods and local area. Visited Hay on Wye, Brecon Car Show, Carreg Cennen Castle and Pembrey Beach – all fantastic! Hope to return soon! X
We had another marvellous week here in Basel Cottage thanks to Sue & Jonah, this beautiful cottage and terrace, excellent walks and a lot of delicious Brownies and cream teas! We hope to come back soon.
Thank you for such a lovely time! We have really enjoyed Basel Cottage, especially the scones!
We have had a great week and intend to return. Hope to go the National Botanic Garden of Wales again on another ‘Doggy Day’ in the Spring.
We have really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage. We received a very warm welcome and a delicious Cream Tea. Our favourite walks were Four Waterfalls near Ystradfellte and the RSPB Reserve and Lake Brianne Dam. Can also recommend the train to Knighton to walk parts of Offa’s Dyke, where there is a very good Visitor Centre. We loved the local shops in Llandovery, superb choice of good food! Highly recommend No. 14 Coffee Shop for “to die-for” chocolate Brownies! Thank you Jonah and Sue for everything and all the best for the future.
Our stay in the Brecon Beacons was enhanced by your kind hospitality and your beautiful cottage. The morning drama at the Bird Table was great fun and set the mood for the day! Once again, thank you very much.
A very very warm welcome with tea and scones. The weather was not too bad. The cottage is very lovely and very cosy and the surrounding area is beautiful. Thank you both for all the care you take.
We have had two weeks here – what a wonderful place! There is so much freedom here, just open the front door and spill out. The first week the weather was wonderful, the second week mixed. The cottage is so well equipped and the Cream Tea on arrival was very welcome. Sue and Jonah are wonderful hosts, we will certainly be back. Llian and Logan enjoyed the mosaic workshop! Thank you both so very much xxx
It has been a real joy to return again to Basel Cottage, to your delightful and warm welcome. You are to be congratulated on keeping up your immaculate standards and personal warmth. With all our love xxx
This is a wonderful home from home – everything that you need for a relaxing break. Sue and Jonah are perfect hosts and the Cream Tea on arrival was a lovely welcome surprise. The grounds are lovely for dog walking and Kukki does not want to go home! We explored the area and went to the National Botanic Garden of Wales – Monday’s being Doggy Day! There are so many places to visit and we loved sitting on the decking in the sunshine with a glass of wine! We hope to come back soon xxx
Thank you very much for your friendly and warm welcome – not to mention the little touch with the slate ‘Welcoming Sign’ and the delicious Cream Tea. You can tell how much thought and love and of course hard work that goes into running this beautiful cottage! There is so much space inside and outside and the views and tranquility of the setting is second to none. It was absolutely perfect for us and Murphy enjoyed playing and exploring outside. To bring the motorbike and the car certainly paid off and the roads around here are great ‘biker roads’. There is still so much to do and see! Thanks again from all of us xxx
What more can we say about this lovely cottage! Perfect hosts, perfect cottage and what’s more PERFECT WEATHER all week! Looking forward to our 3rd visit at Christmas. Many thanks, Sue & Jonah.
Lovely, spotless Cottage with fantastic views! Thank you for being such good hosts – and for helping us catch Maisie!!! Kindest thoughts xx and of course ‘woof woof’ from Maisie!
Sundae and Fe (Brown and Black Labs) – Thank you Sue and Jonah – WE HAD FUN! xxx – so did we Alexia & Paul!
Basel Cottage is a lovely property, both inside and out. It’s well decorated and has everything you’ll need. The owners are lovely, leaving you in doubt that you can contact them if you need anything, but otherwise just leaving you to your own devices. They’re also genuinely dog-friendly and the grounds are great for keeping your dog amused. I would heartily recommend Basel Cottage!
We have had a lovely three days in Basel Cottage – always spotless! And today the sun is shining for us. Ruben had a great time, see you soon and thank you.
We all really enjoyed the cottage and the walks around your land. Issy and Oysha loved their playtime in the river on Sunday! We hope that we can visit again soon.
We had a fantastic week in this beautiful cottage. We could not have asked for anything more, probably the best one we have ever stayed in. Ellie and Jake loved the field and the woods. Many thanks to Sue and Jonah for being great hosts. Hope to be back next year.
Totally fabulous – Much love x
What more can we add to previous comments about how great this place is and the warm hospitality of Sue & Jonah. We stayed 5 days and highlights included Dinefwr Park & Castle, day trip to Tenby and a sunny walk around the National Botanic Garden of Wales. Really comfortable cottage, fabulous views – probably the BEST holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. BIG THANK YOU!
Our 4th stay at Basel Cottage, a home away from home in a wonderful setting with wonderful hosts! We will be back again next year! Thank you for the welcome – another great stay x
Our second visit to Basel Cottage. Great welcome, beautiful place, lovely cottage – We will be back again! Thank you.
Beautiful 5* cottage in a fabulous location. We had a wonderful week that went so quick. Lovely Cream Tea on arrival. Paul & Kieran loved Bike Park Wales. Great days out at Newquay, the Waterfalls and Usk Reservoir. Lots of good food at The Bear Inn and Castle Hotel in Llandovery. Merlin, the Red Setter, will miss the garden and the woods. Thanks Sue & Jonah for being wonderful hosts.
A lovely week. Cottage great as usual – weather was kind to us. Yolande loves Wales, but this was her first time back since she was a child. Hope to see you again next year – Our week to relax! Thank you.

Our stay in Basel Cottage can be described in one word – ‘Perfect!!’ Thank you.
Dear Sue & Jonah, Thank you for making our stay in Basel Cottage so enjoyable. The cottage is fantastic and we loved the area. Tyler is really going to miss you both and really enjoyed the archery and spending time in your company – maybe Jack will be walking when we return! Lovely cottage and grounds, such a fab family holiday! Thank you xxx
Dear Sue & Jonah, We had an amazing week! We were lucky enough to have beautiful and sunny weather almost the entire week! The hiking tour of the two lakes – Llyn Y Fan Fach and Llyn Y Fan Fawr was our personal favourite, really exhausting but absolutely worth it! – The view is breath-taking! But best of all was coming home to a lovely cottage in the evening, which obviously had taken a lot of work! So much love has been put into it and it really felt like home – Thank you for that. Hopefully we will come back again!
Dear Sue and Jonah, Thank you very much for the lovely stay in your beautiful cottage. We all enjoyed it very much. What a special place!

Mixed weather but some good sunny days. Lovely cottage, has all you could really want. Thanks to the hosts for being so kind. Countryside marvellous on this the west side of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Birdlife exceptional.
Basel Cottage is now firmly our No.1 ‘Go to’ cottage when we need to recharge our batteries! Despite awful weather Sue and Jonah create the most perfect spot to enjoy the peace and quiet. The antics at the bird table can keep you amused and entertained for hours! Thank You.
Sue and Jonah thank you for a lovely stay. Cottage is very lovely with great views and all a great holiday needs. We hope to see you next year.
Thank you Sue and Jonah for a lovely welcome and a very hospitable stay. Cottage the cleanest and the best-stocked we have ever stayed in! Lots of lovely dog walks despite the weather – rain, rain and more rain!! – Will return! xx P.S. Thanks for the dog-sitting, much appreciated!
Not many words needed, just a brilliant stay – 4th time! Asked the dogs Max & Boyce what they thought of it – wagged their tails and started to bark, full of excitement!!!! – Guess they agreed! Diolch yn fawr to Sue & Jonah.
We have really enjoyed our week at Basel Cottage. The welcome with scones and tea was much appreciated. Sue and Jonah have been great hosts, making sure we had everything we needed. The standard of accommodation is first class and very comfortable. Sheba certainly enjoyed her walks! Watching the wildlife from the lounge window-seat was brilliant and we have many photos! We have been quite lucky with the weather apart from the storm on Friday! We have had several cottage holidays but Basel Cottage has been the best by far – Thank you Sue and Jonah.
It was our second time here in Basel Cottage! All we can say is: In more than 10 years of holidays all over Great Britain, this definitely is the best cottage we have ever stayed in! The location is fantastic, so peaceful, so quiet! Thank you Sue & Jonah for everything – we will miss Wales and Basel Cottage! You are fantastic hosts! We do hope that we can come back again one day!!
We have been to Wales many times and as ever it is good for the soul! Walk around Usk Reservoir STUNNING and Crychan Forest (Blue Trail) tranquil. Returning home very relaxed and refreshed. Thanks!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Basel Cottage. The cottage is extremely clean, well equipped and there are many leaflets, books and ideas for trips out and walks. Our dogs loved the enclosed field, stream and woods and we loved the rustic benches / picnic tables around the property – especially the seats on the decking. Sue & Jonah were brilliant, friendly and knowledgeable hosts, always on hand for advice, help and ideas. Thank you for a lovely week!
Thank you for a lovely week, well done with the weather!!! The cottage was wonderful and the views from the window seat were stunning. See you again!!!
A superb week, the cottage is comfortable and welcoming. The location ideal and the weather was kind to us. We walked every day and had some good walks around Llandovery.
We feel deeply privileged to have spent another unique & wonderful week here in Llandovery at Basel Cottage. The sun has enhanced and embraced our stay.

When going on holiday its everyones desire to arrive at your destination and feel at home.
