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.Howard & Linda from East Sussex - June/July 2017

We had a wonderful time! Thank you so much for your warm welcome, your help when we had a flat tyre and all your efforts to make our stay a wonderful time. Sven and Elin really enjoyed being invited to walk with you and the dogs and play with them. We will come back next year (something we never do – go back to the same place) because our stay felt way too short and we felt so at home in the cottage and felt so welcome here! See you next year!Joost, Samula, Sven & Elin from The Netherlands - August 2020
