    About this property

    Stunning, stylish and luxury cottage with phenomenal panoramic views, featured in Conde Nast Traveller's 'Best of British Houses - Back of Beyond 2013", The Daily Mail "Top Ten Perfect Holiday Cottages", and also The Sunday Times, "Cottages with Style". Wonderful for groups and families wanting to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

    Old Crofftau is one of our favourite cottages. This stunning holiday home for 8 people is just 3 miles from Brecon, but you're tucked away in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons with a footpath from the door straight up Cribyn and Penyfan. It's dog friendly, and child friendly, with lots of space, an enclosed garden and Cantref Adventure Farm and Riding Centre just a mile away. The house is comfortable and charming with a 1960s jukebox and plenty of antique furniture. The friendly owners live just next door and are happy to help you plan your trip.

On the upper floor of this beautifully converted farmhouse is a long galleried room with comfortable deep squashy sofas and chairs; a long dining table and chairs, a large very efficient woodburning stove,  TV, CD, DVD, Wi-Fi and video, as well as a classic 60's Wurlitzer juke box. The views from all the windows are phenomenal, straight out onto Cribyn and Pen-y-fan and in the other direction to the Black Mountains.

    Mr B Lewis
    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Old Crofftau over the Easter period, as usual. We appreciated the improvements that had been made since we last visited in 2013.The generous supply of towels is always useful. Kim & Sue made us very welcome, as they always do. We would like to ask you to put a hold on Old Croffau for the Easter week 2016 (25th-31st March). That would be for 8 adults and our young grandson. The put-you-up bed in the large room worked well this year. Last year, as Old Crofftau was booked early, we stayed at another property. That was very comfortable too but Old Crofftau has a magic about it that can't be beaten! The booking process through your company worked as smoothly as usual. "
    Mrs C Durham
    "We had an excellent weekend at Crofftau (and even know how to pronounce it now!). The property was superb, the owners very friendly and helpful, and even though the weather was cold it wasn't rainy and we were able to get out on good walks from the property. The new "dragon" in the garden was a great hit with the 4 year old and 2 year old."
    Mr P Wolfe
    "We had a great time, and a great stay (2nd time for us). Booking was convenient and everyone was very helpful"
    Mrs C Barnes
    "We returned today after a week at a fantastic house in a fantastic location! Old Crofftau was everything I hoped it would be. We had a mixture of friends and family at the house to celebrate a significant birthday of mine! The owners were so wonderful, they were helpful & really went the extra mile to ensure everything worked for us with our plans, even putting up bunting in the garden when they knew all my Welsh family were coming for a BBQ! They were very friendly but not at all invasive. The house is just great, beds very comfortable, lovely linen & towels. Having hand soap & cream available in each bathroom was a nice touch as was the bottle of wine & cake left for us. Everyone commented on how fabulous the location and house was. The gardens were beautiful too. I really can't fault anything about the property or owners. Thank you so much for all your help whilst booking and afterwards. We would love to visit the property again."
    Mrs L. Whitnall
    "We had an absolutely wonderful time at Old Crofftau. Loved it. Will definitely be returning there but having a tug of war with our friends at the moment as to who goes for it next Christmas ha ha.Service from start to finish was fantastic, one of the best Christmases ever."
    Ms L Warden
    "We REALLY enjoyed our stay at Kim & Sue Brook's farmhouse south of Brecon (Crofftau). The property and the setting are both gorgeous, and the Brooks are a wonderful couple. It was so nice to be able to take our two dogs with us and have such a lovely place to stay. We would like to go back again sometime in the summer."
    Mrs E Blessitt
    "Old Crofftau was a fantastic base for our holiday. The owners were warm and welcoming and the accommodation was fantastic. The setting was amazing. No complaints whatsoever and very likely to recommend to others in future."
    Mrs T.E Woodland
    "We had a fantastic time as usual at Crofftau- booking easy and Sue and Kim just wonderful. The barn is delightful and so comfy."
    Mr R Mccammon
    "Loved Crofftau. One of best holiday cottages that we have ever stayed in. We are really looking forward to booking again. The owners were so lovely."
    Mrs S Kilgour
    "Excellent experience with Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottage, with Old Crofftau and with owners Kim and Sue. Nothing could have improved our experience. Thank you to all involved"
