“walking trip”
Reviewed February 25, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

we stayed with large group of friends and family at the happy horse cottage over half term. The cottages are modern, clean and warm, with good facilities for a comfortable stay for all the guests.
The owners are friendly and helpful. Great location for walking in the Brecons. Highly recommend the walk to the waterfalls nearby. Thank you for the chocolate cake on our arrival!

“Breathtaking, Friendly, Accommodating & Chilled Out”
Reviewed February 19, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Myself, partner and 7 friends decided to go away for a weekend of walking, relaxing and a few beers on the night.

Happy horse was absolutely perfect for this, located next to a fantastic reservoir to walk around and within the beautiful Brecon Beacons.

Nicky was an amazing host, showed us around, gave us guidance and also ensured our stay was as good as it could possibly be.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a chilled out week/weekend away with fantastic views.

“Absolutely brilliant place to stay”
Reviewed January 12, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We hired the 3 cottages for a family get together for a week over the New Year period. Ages ranged from 2 years to 60 + we all had a brilliant time. Everything you could possibly wish for was supplied in the cottages. Beds where so comfortable. The location was idillic with plenty of things to do. I have already recommended this holiday let to friends.

“Great place for a Christmas break”
Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

11 of us stayed over christmas, including children and grandparents. The accomodation was perfect for a large mixed aged group. The interiors were robust enough to withstand young children. The underfloor heating was a revelation and kept us cosy and warm through out our winter stay.. Definitely on my wish list now. Having the separate places was perfect for when the grandparents needed time out from the little ones. The communal space was large enough to accommodate all 11 us comfortably and the beautiful, massive, old, oak table was a highlight, perfect for large family meals, playing games and drinking wine.

“perfect relaxation destination!”
Reviewed January 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Friends and I came here for a hen do and it was absolutely marvellous. All three cottages are immaculately clean with lovely decor and have all the provisions necessary. The surroundings are perfect and peaceful, plenty of room to 'hangout' outside and indoors depending on weather. Property is in the middle of nowhere which is blissfull but still a short drive from the town. Owners were wonderful and so accommodating.... everyone of us said we would go again. 10/10

“Ideal”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The venue was perfect for our 4 families. We felt we could all get together easily and also felt free to do our own thing. The owners and farm helpers were so friendly. They even got our grandchildren out horse poo picking which they loved. Amazing! Our grandchildren felt free and would go to the stables and have a chat to a horse over the gate. All in all ideal for a family get together.
