The lovely village of Bwlch is perfect for lovers of the outdoors with horse-riding, cycling and hiking to ramble around the splendour of nature.

    Very clean and helpful owner. Beautiful location. We went to a wedding so only there for a short time.

  • Sam

    We loved particularly the crooked walls and floor in the main bedroom and the amazing fire place. It was very well equipped with all we could need for cooking a Christmas dinner. Location was perfect. Not too rural but nicely placed for both Brecon and Abergavenny. We had some problems with the heating but were able to manage with the wood burner and didn’t find out until afterwards that we could have had the thermostat turned up remotely by the owners. It would be handy for that info to be made available in the excellent cottage info book provided. The only other thing is that the three piece suite needs replacing. The base appears to have failed and having an elderly relative with us she had a distressing incident when first sitting on the sofa and realising that it had no support and she couldn’t get up. We all had quite bad backs after sitting for any length of time. Overall, this is a lovely cottage and we would definitely stay again.

    There was plenty of everything- towels, logs, toilet paper and comfy throws. The bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen had everything you could need. The Welsh cakes and milk were much appreciated. Ceri thoughtfully texted to see if we needed the external light on to help us when we arrived. The location is wonderful for access to Crickhowell, Tretower and Brecon for sightseeing and walking. The weather was terrible, but we curled up in front of the lovely log burner. We had a great meal in the New Inn which is just steps away - no need for a designated driver. We thorough recommend Talworth.
