The first thing to notice about the cottage is that it is extremely pretty. With a Lovely garden and the river passing by and beautiful hills beyond, i wont ask for more. They have a good parking. Also very well located, just behind the station, highstreet, walks and pont-y-pair is just 5 mins walk around. The hosts are great and...

Absolutely Amazing! I could not fault our stay at the Court House AT ALL. Having mentioned to Richard and Tanya that it was my partner's birthday, we arrived to a decorated room, and 10 minutes after we arrived Richard brought in a lovely birthday cake- complete with candles. The room itself was thoughtfully decorated, whilst keeping it's historic roots (we...

Richard and Tanya are your hosts in this riverside B&B in the centre of the village. Just a short walk will get you into the village where there is many shops, pubs and visitor attractions. The B&B was the old police station and it still retains the features. The reception room has a collection of police helmets etc. When we...

Tanya & Richard, couldn't have been more helpful, arranging a change to a larger room, providing routes for local walks and filling our flasks. The room was very comfortable, with plenty on storage and very well stocked tea/coffee making tray. Breakfasts were fantastic, loads of choice and very well cooked and presented.

We had a lovely night's stay in one of the "cells" as we were obviously convicted felons! Quirky room full of artefacts, but a treat to stay in. Tanya was very helpful and brought us tea and cake on our arrival whilst we sat by the river in the garden. Absolutely fabulous full Welsh breakfast for us both in the...
