Superb vantage point on side of Wye Valley looking across to Black Mountains ridge line (photos don't quite do justice). x3 cottages very well equipped for self-catering and abundance of great country pubs (x1 a meadow away) nearby. Can walk into Hay easily enough. Nearby Begwyns a lovely moor hilltop walk area and Black Mountains a real outdoor playground. Hosts Beth and Pete extremely friendly and helpful re local knowledge and tips. Perfect for all ages - newborns and up with plenty of safe areas on site for kiddies to play / see what a sheep looks like etc
We enjoyed a lovely week at Orchard Cottage. The view from the cottage is stunning.Beth and David were friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the walk across fields to the local pub, The Baskerville Arms. Their Sunday lunch was good value for money. The cottage is situated within easy reach of Hay and other amenities. Beth and Peter were able to help us with planning jogging and walking routes from the cottage. For any Park Runners the nearest run is at Hereford. As ever, a friendly crowd at this run. Altogether, a brilliant week and we plan to return..
We have just returned to London after a delightful week in Brunant Farm and can’t stop talking about our time away. My family (husband plus two girls under 10) and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Warren cottage. It was just what we were looking for to get away from unrelenting London.
The cottage is cosy and homely with all modern conveniences, including a choice of kids DVDs and a stocked kitchen. The setting is spectacular – wonderful views of the hills through the day and almost unreal starry skies at night. The playroom barn was a big hit with the girls who spent a fair amount of time entertaining themselves there. There’s no wifi at the property but mobile coverage is strong.
The property is ideally situated for the many long walks we did and within easy driving distance to Hay, Brecon and Abergavenny. Stumbling across the brooding ruins of Llanthony Priory was a real highlight – definitely worth a visit. Big Pit is highly recommended and there’s a heritage steam train there too.
Special mention as to how welcoming Beth and Peter were, including producing chocolate bunnies when they saw the children and taking the trouble to courier some personal effects left behind.
We would certainly recommend this property to friends and family and hope we get the chance to come back soon.
Just got home from a breathtaking and WARM stay here! We were rescued by lovely locals after being stranded thanks to a disgusting campsite a few miles away. Here we had all of our home comforts and a very welcoming and fun pair of hosts - we cannot express our thanks enough and will most definitely back to this treasure of a find!!!
We have just returned from a wonderful weeks stay in Bramble cottage. Peter and Beth make you feel so welcome and they made the house child friendly for our 16 month old toddler. The views are breathtaking with walks from the door. hay is only a five minute drive for restaurants, cafes and books! We will be back. Would highly recommend staying here.
