There are so many things to do both on the doorstep and within a short distance that we are delighted to welcome guests back year after year.

'I don't want to leave! Gorgeous views everywhere you look, comfortable modern accommodation in an older setting. We got the children to walk every day and even admit they liked it! Discovered a waterfall walk in the village which was a surprise.' November 2012
'A wonderful cottage in outstanding location and a scrumptious welcome pack. Went down Big Pit and visited Talgarth Water Mill. Enjoyed walking over the fields to Llanelly Church. We have driven through this area many times but now we really know its charm we shall be back to stay at the Loft for another holiday. Thank you Hilary and Graham for sharing this lovely property.' October 2012
