A perfect rural retreat for families and couples alike.
Basel Cottage Holidays is located in the Cambrian Mountains in Carmarthenshire, Wales, on the edge of the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park.

Excellent stay. Sue and Jonah provided a delicious Cream Tea on arrival! Very welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. Walked miles! Llyn y Fan Fach and parts of the Brecon Way. It is worth visiting the National Trust Gold Mines. Ate at The Castle Hotel which was very friendly. Good to avoid the crowds so will definitely be back! Many Thanks.Allen and Jill - August 2019
Smashing break. Enjoyed every minute of our stay (6th time!) Max and Boyce were very happy to make new friends with Barney and Teddy 🐾🐾! Diolch yn Fawr.Marcel, Annick, Max & Boyce 🐕🐕 from Belgium - September 2018
We had the most wonderful week here at Basel Cottage. The cottage is pure luxury and the best equipped cottage we have ever been to. The views and walks were fantastic. Sue & Jonah are brilliant hosts and our Cream Tea on arrival was an added bonus. We hope to return in the future.Michelle, Joan & Beau - 12 March 2016
We’ve spent two glorious weeks here in this beautiful cottage and stunning surroundings. A great property for Flint and Ruby to run freely – can’t fault anything. Perfect hosts thank you!Moira, Peter, Ruby and Flint - September 2014
Thank you very much for the warm welcome and for making us feel at home in your perfect cottage. We had a great time and Sam had great fun with the cows! Thanks again for the Royal Welsh Show tickets and we hope to see you again soon.Luc, Tessa, Els & Sam from Belgium - July 2016
Our fifth visit and as always a fabulous stay! We hope to see you again soon!Leanne, Nigel, Isabelle, Hannah, Rosie 🐕 and Willow 🐕 - October / November 2019
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.Keith, Linda & Sheba the German Shepherd - May 2016
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 xxxPaul, Birgitt, Carmen, Scott & Murphy the Cockapoo - April 2017

By far the best cottage we have stayed in!! Sue and Jonah welcomed us with such warmth and have continued to be great hosts and company throughout our stay. We cannot wait to come back again!! Willow has loved the field and woods as well as sitting in the window watching the birds. Thank you for a relaxing break. This is a very special, magical place.Gemma, Ben and Willow 🐕 - Sept / Oct 2019
Sophie has loved the open spaces and enjoyed her walks to the river and the woods – Doggy paradise! Charlie’s first holiday with Grandma and Granddad – We cherished every minute. Thank you Sue and Jonah.Lucy, Peter, Charlie & Sophie the Dog from Bath, June-July 2014
The most relaxing half-term break. We loved the cottage and walking in the grounds. Llyn y Fan Fach and watching the birds from the Window Seat were particular highlights!Jen, Ben, Lizzie, Mary & Katie from West Sussex - February 2019
Fabulous accommodation and lovely surroundings. Sue and Jonah greeted us with enthusiasm and were keen for us to make the most of our stay at Basel Cottage. We were shown around the cottage, of which they are very proud and rightly so! The cottage was comfortable and very clean. The surrounding garden / land was fabulous with amazing views and superb walks. Our elderly dog Faith was made most welcome. A super location for a truly relaxing break. Would highly recommend!Sue, Glyn & Faith - September 2018
What a beautiful cottage! Thank you for such a lovely welcome including the Cream Tea!Dawn and Julian - July 2018

A wonderful cottage in an amazing setting. The dogs love the gardens and forest and their own private river!! Taking two very tired dogs home but hopefully be back soon!Lynn & Alastair and Dougal & Finlay the Dogs from York. August, 2015
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.Anne, Catherine & William from Cardiff and Paris - August 2017
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!Irmi & Keith - November 2016
