We had a lovely stay in Riversounds. Overlooking the river and waterfall it is a beautiful location. Jacqui and John were amazing hosts, so friendly and knowledgeable about the local area and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was lovely and cosy with lovely touches - bread, butter, orange juice etc everything you need for a perfect get away. Thank you! Will definitely come back.

Had a beautiful 2 night stsy here for my 50th birthday, Jacqui was lovely and made us feel very welcome, filter coffee, cereal, milk, bread & butter, apple juice, ham, crossaints, sugar, 2 cans G&T all left in the apartment for us. Shampoo & bubble bath too. The views over the waterfalls were stunning following torrential rain the day before. Unfortunately, the telegraph pole by the accommodation had been hit by lightning so we had no wifi or tv for our first evening but sorted next day, no fault of Jacqui’s. Thankyou for a wonderful time👍😄 there is a pub within walking distance so we were happy in there and a short drive to the 4 waterfalls and reservoir at Talybont on Usk is a must😃

I booked RiverSound for my boyfriends birthday. Cute waterfall and beautiful accommodation. It had everything you could ever need… Posh coffee, brioche buns, cookies, bread, butter, milk, orange juice and more. There was an iron and and a hairdryer! There was no ‘Normal TV’ but there is a stick which has Netflix which they pay for for you which was amazing. The accommodation was SO clean! Not a bit of dust anywhere, plenty of logs for the fire and even a chimnea outside (we didn’t light it). There was a fridge with a freezer compartment which was handy for ice cubes for your little tipple at night! I almost nearly forgot to mention THE BATH! I now need a roll top bath as my ‘normal’ one just doesn’t cut it! The accommodation is a 20 min drive from The Hills (burger place) if you like burgers. And about 30 mins (don’t hold me to that) to Blaen Y Glyn Isaf a water fall walk! Which you can do even if you can’t walk for Milesss. Thank you so much for having us!

We really love this little cottage, the open plan layout with the spiral staircase feels really spacious and the fireplace is so cozy to relax in front of in the evening. Having a coffe on the terrace overlooking the river is so serene, you could waste the day there. The cottage is well stocked with everything you need for breakfast and lunch and there is no shortage of places to eat around the local areas and even a pub in walking distance. We loved the supplies left for us from cookies to little cans of gin and tonic. The bath upstairs was a real treat after a long day of exploring the Brecons. The highlight was the bat show in the evening, it was amazing to watch them dart up and down the valley with a glass of wine. Will definitely be returning and would highly recommend!

My husband and I absolutely loved our 2 night stay at Jacqui’s place! We really lucked out with the weather too, so we got to thoroughly enjoy the beautiful terrace overlooking the lovely little waterfall... The owner’s gorgeous dog would come and chill with us occasionally too, which was really nice. Waking up to the sounds of the river was just mesmerising. The bed is super comfy and we slept really well throughout. The place is wonderfully clean and looks even more stylish in real life. It has everything you need from champagne flutes in the kitchen to a basket full of toiletries in the bathroom. The barn is a 1 minute walk from a lovely pub (which has vegan options for anyone who might be interested). We spent our daytimes hiking in the Brecon Beacons, which was absolutely stunning. On one day we did the four waterfall walk (about a 40 minute drive from the property) and the next day we did the hike up to Pen Y Fan (which was about 25 minutes from the property). We spent the evenings relaxing on the dreamy balcony, drinking champagne and listening to the sounds of the river... Pure heaven! Do not hesitate to book this place - it’s the perfect retreat for a relaxing few days away! We will be back.

Just returned from a few days celebrating our wedding anniversary and my wife's 50th birthday. Jacqui and John were the perfect hosts and their property was the perfect place to celebrate. A gorgeous apartment in a beautiful and tranquil location. With many varied walks and a couple of really good pubs on the doorstep, we will certainly come here again. Can't forget to mention their dog Albus, the most chilled easy going dog you'll ever meet...thanks for a perfect stay.

We’ve just returned from a two night stay in this stunning apartment. Really peaceful, picturesque location. Jacqui and her husband couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful. Albus the dog was a big hit with my daughter! Lots of beautiful walks along the canal right on your doorstep and a short walk to the local pub and cafe. Perfect in every way, thank you so much 😊

We loved to stay in Jacqui's cottage. The location next to the river and the canal is great: calm, romantic but close to shops and the pub. We even had some sunshine to sit on the terrace and listen to the sounds of the river. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very cosy though we didn't light the fire. Communication with Jacqui was very easy. She provided us with lots of helpful information about what to see in the area. For breakfast we had more than we needed. We'd love to return to Jacqui's some day.

Generally unclean, food supplied unhygienic with 3 jars of jam or marmalade half used, sugar bowl unclean scouring pad already used and in poor condition etc . Lovely location spoilt by poor housekeeping. Shampoos promised were leftovers from previous guests.Under cushions on settee and chair were coins crisps and lots of dust etc. No bathmat in bath to stop slipping and no safety handle to alight from bath,no dressing table to put clothes in, just one small rail to hang clothes on.Cuttlery on crockery in poor condition.

Pictures do not do this beatiful place justice. It is a cozy cottage, thoughtfully stocked with a variety of groceries that are delicious. The hosts are incredibly kind. Pub and river are within a short walk. Internet and tv offer modern conveniences. Very romantic and well decorated. Large tub for soaking after long walks or runs. Wood burning stove for rainy days and big windows to let the sun in. We wish we lived closer to visit more than once a year! One of the best amenities is their pup who is very well behaved and a great replacement for those missing their own! Highly recommend for a perfect get away. Jacqui and John are exceptional hosts and make you feel that this is your home away from home (though it is far nicer than our home!) They will give you pointers about the area, great restaurants, great hikes, etc. We love this area. There is so much to do and we have met so many wonderful people in the town. This is our favorite place to stay when we travel from the United States to Wales and we look forward to relocating so that we can stay more often!
