“Beautiful area, wonderful cottage ”
Reviewed 27 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed 3 nights & had a wonderful time. The barn is beautifully decorated, clean & has plenty of amenities. There were lovely extra touches like cupboards full of books& board games which I found really nice.
Martin was there (owner) when we arrived & made sure we got settled in but otherwise we were left to our own devices and knew where to go if we needed anything.
The hot tub was fantastic. It was lovely at night when outside was freezing but the water was hot.
Also we were able to take our dog - who loved the open space outside.
We popped into Hay on Wye which was okay - not really our thing but can see why others like it so much.
Overall we had a brilliant time, really relaxing & will no doubt be booking again next year.
In the run up to the trip Colleen & Martin were great with communicating with me & were very fast at responding to the couple of emails I sent.
Fantastic location, accommodation & service 5*

“The most perfect two weeks we could wish for”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Absolutely perfect.I can say no more than the previous guest comments as every thing was fantastic. We even had two weeks of wonderful sunshine enabling us to enjoy great days out as well as being able to enjoy the outside hot tub and facilities every evening until late.
Thank you Colleen and Martin.

“We Love Little Twmp Barn!”
Reviewed 5 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

It's actually quite hard to find enough words to adequately describe this gorgeous property. The location and views are absolutely stunning. We live in Devon near Dartmoor but it now seems pale by comparison! It was really great to be able to show off the best bits of Wales (where I lived during my teenage years) to my daughter and grandchildren. Brecon and the Beacons a short drive away and the Show caves, Cray Reservoir, Henrhyd Falls ... it was great to re-visit and then to come home to gorgeous Little Twmp to relax or have a dip in the hot tub. The littlies (and the biggies!) loved it. Elsie had her 10th birthday here - she loves drawing and we spent time outside drawing the views! Everything is perfect outside and inside, with fabulous thoughtful little extras - little touches like the fairy lights on the veranda outside ( the little girls loved that!), pretty ornaments, candles, pictures - all very tasteful and obviously chosen with love and care, visits from Alfie and other things like the reading material and toys for the kids. It was all really lovely. Thank you Colleen and Martin made us feel really welcome and were always on hand with useful information and advice. There is also a lovely atmosphere in this property - we really got the feeling that the owners enjoy making their guests' experience a thoroughly enjoyable one. Thank you so much. WE WILL BE BACK!

“excellent”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Had a great time. Accommodation was lovely and the views are amazing. Hot tub was excellent for the children. We have an 8 year old, 12 and 14 year old and they all agreed it was the best place we have stayed in. Plenty to do in the area for all the family. The owners are very friendly and helpful and we will definitely be returning for another stay.
