Cottage Set in 17 acres of glorious Welsh Countryside, Award-Winning 5 Star Basel Cottage is the perfect dog friendly, romantic or family getaway, sleeping 4 guests.
Located in the Cambrian Mountains on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Basel Cottage is the perfect central location to make the most of all that Wales has to offer.
A beautiful find for a last minute booking. Enjoyed the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and the British Birds of Prey Centre on the way here. Agree with other guests that the RSPB Walk is well worth doing. Stunning views all around Llyn y Fan Fach and Llyn y Fan Fawr. Both Dinefwr Castle and Carreg Cennen Castle are well worth doing.Jeremy and Fiona - July 2018
Third stay, as good as the previous two. The warmest welcome again by Sue and Jonah. Will be back again. Diolch yn Fawr.Marcel and Annick with Max and Boyce - October 15.

Thank you so much for your warm welcome and hospitality.

Thanks for a holiday to remember.Michelle, Raymond, James, Conor & Rocky the Dog from County Down, Northern Ireland, July 2014
Stunning cottage in an amazing location. Thank you for the wonderful scones on arrival. Rebecca had never tried them before and she is now a big fan of them! We had a fantastic time visiting Hay on Wye and museums in Swansea after travelling on the Heart of Wales Railway. Also went on the lovely Gwili Steam Railway. Took in the wonderful scenery this area has to offer and recommend the roads around Lynne Briane Reservoir. Also recommend Pengawse Tea Rooms in Llandovery – lovely food and large portions. Thanks for a fantastic week, we will be back again!Stuart, Julie & Rebecca from Wokingham - August 2019
A wonderful week in a perfect cottage. Sue and Jonah are wonderful hosts – helpful but not intrusive! We walked Pen Y Fan and Llyn Y Fan Fach – great to explore an area of Wales we don’t know well. The gardens and woods, hills and river are great for children and dogs; especially beautiful with the bluebells in bloom! We would love to come back one day.Humphreys Family and Bertie 🐕 - April 2019
Can only repeat what previous guests have already said – a GEM of a cottage with the perfect hosts! Thank you!!!Kate & Richard - April 2018
