We stayed in the Honeypot cottage for two nights. The location is perfect for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park and only a short drive from Cardiff. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The cottage was clean and quiet.

Perfect little cottage in a great location for the Brecon Beacons. Knowing you were driving back to a nice warm cottage with a lovely hot wet room shower was a great feeling and having done the Winter Fan Dance a hot shower was definitely needed. Just a short drive from the cottage is an Asda and Tesco for all the...

Warm & friendly hosts. Clean, peaceful and central for the Beacons, Cardiff the Gower coast as well as the beautiful green valleys. Cottage comfortable and well equipped. The Brecon canal has boats for hire or a guided cruise with refreshments is available. Very relaxing. Good for walkers horse riders or cyclists.
