    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.

Basel Cottage Holidays is feeling sad.Sunday, November 28th, 2021 at 5:47pm
Storm Arwen visited and has ripped through our lovely woods 😭 We have lost at least one large tree and there is debris throughout and remains of a number of large bird nests that have fallen to the ground. Miraculously though all our newly planted trees appear to have survived which we are so thankful for 🤗 Take care everyone and stay safe😘

We have now added some lovely Dunoon Fine Bone China mugs to our collection called ‘Birdlife’ by Jane Fern. What better reason do you need to put the kettle on, make a cup of tea ☕️ and do a bit of bird spotting whilst relaxing on the cosy window seat! ❤️ #birdlife #britishbirds #birdwatching #birdspotting #cupoftea #relax #quiettime #bonechinateacups #binoculars #birdbooks #windowseat #baselcottage #holidaycottage #cambrianmountains #autumn #cosy #peaceandquiet #breconbeacons #visitcarmarthenshire #llandovery #familyholidays #couplesretreat #solotravellers #dogfriendlyholidayaccommodation #bookdirect #thisismywales #comevisitus

Today we had to say ‘cheerio’ to gorgeous Tan! He has just spent his 7th holiday here at Basel Cottage and as always enjoyed his daily walks with Barney and Teddy. The 3 boys even had a night-time rendezvous 🔥 at the Cabin in the Woods which went down really well! We miss you already Tan and look forward to seeing you, Angie and Alan again next year 🐕🥰 #dogholidays #fourleggedfriend #dogfriendly #dogsstayfree #baselcottage #breconbeacons #visitcambrianmountains #walksfromthedoor #awardwinning #holidaycottage #familyholidays #couplesretreat #peaceandquiet #woodlandwalks #holidayinwales #bookdirect #comevisitsoon

Barney and Teddy proudly wearing their poppies on Remembrance Sunday ❤️ These boys accompanied us to this morning's service in Llandovery, the first one since Jonah has retired from the military so even more poignant and they behaved themselves impeccably. 🥰

Well, that was a Halloween to remember! Thrilled to be able to host Ex Welsh International & Lions player Mike Phillips on one of the last legs of his Book Launch & Signing! Mike was great fun and enjoyed his time exploring what we have on offer here at Basel Cottage - he even put his golf skills to the test with a round or two on our 'Agricultural 4 Hole Pitch & Putt Course! Thank you La Patisserie, Llandovery for providing a fabulous Breakfast Feast and Nellie for making it all happen!
