“Simply the best”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

One word would be enough: perfect.
We certainly made the best choice. The hosts, Sue and Jona are wonderful: We felt very welcome, They could give us a lot of suggestions what to do in the area and they really made us feel at home at Basel Cottage.
The cottage is very spacious and very well equipped - there was nothing we were missing. We really liked the way the rooms were furnished and decorated and everything was high-standard and selected with great care.
Our favourite place was the window sill in the living room: best place on a stormy or rainy day to watch the birds outside or just to sit and read.
There are a lot of activities in the area (Sue has prepared folders with lots of information!): national botanical garden, castles, walking etc. Basel Cottage is a very quiet place, with lots of green space around, but in car it takes only a couple of minutes to the next little town (Llandovery) with shops and some pubs.
Would definitely recommend Basel Cottage!!! and hopefully we will be back

“Perfect”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Just returned from a week at Basel cottage.
What can I say? Was a perfect holiday for us, thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Sue & Jonah were great hosts, my teenage boys loved the archery & shooting which Jonah put on for them, Reggie our dog had a great stay & was thoroughly spoilt. The cottage was spotless, everything had been thought of, lovely views & a great area for a family holiday.
Thankyou

“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A wonderful cottage in a picturesque setting! Beautifully clean, brilliantly resourced with very kind and friendly owners. This really was a very homely stay, even the dog came home refreshed and relaxed. We were greeted with a tasty cream tea and nothing was too much trouble during our stay. You will have difficulty finding a better holiday cottage than this one!

What a wonderful cottage ! We have just returned from our third stay and have already booked again for next year. The cottage and surroundings are beautiful ; extremely clean , tastefully decorated and well equipped. The attention to detail really does go a long way. The welcome tea and homemade scones from the wonderful owners really were appreciated ! The cottage is a great base for visiting attractions but also a relaxing retreat which is like a home from home.
A real five star property! Well done ..

“Fabulous Cottage in beautiful countryside”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have just returned from staying a week at Basel Cottage. We all had a wonderful time.
Upon arrival Susan and Jonah gave us tour of the house and grounds and presented us with a delicious cream tea. We felt 'at home' straight away.
Our Dog Max loved the extensive enclosed gardens enabling him to run around off lead. We even had our own woods!
There are plenty of walks on the doorstep and even more a short drive away.
The accommodation was very spacious, comfortable and very clean with excellent Wi-fi which pleased the children!!!
Susan very kindly looked after Max one day so we could visit the Caves in the Brecon Beacons.
We would highly recommend this holiday and we hope to return again in the future.
