Really, really lovely hosts who looked after us throughout the stay and gave us lots of information regarding the location and the Eco friendly running of the farm. Gave us a guided tour on the tractor which the children loved. Magnificent location, within easy reach of local things to do including the show-caves, waterfalls, Brecon & Pen y fan. Highly recommend this property, it will not disappoint in any way!!
