The Flat is not really suitable for very young children due to the staircase - but from 10 years old should be fine. Ask for details. Parties are not allowed and if noise could be kept to a minimum after 10pm will be appreciated. Sorry No Smoking, No pets.

Lovely accommodation for visiting Brecon Beacons
Top Floor at Cantref House is a really lovely place to stay for a visit to the Brecon Beacons National Park. Located in de country side with the Pen y Fan almost in the backyard, you can really relax. Sheila and her husband make you feel really welcome, the welcome basket on arrival is very nice. The accommodation has all amenities you could wish for, with the charm and character an historic building can have. Beautiful place for Brecon Beacons and surrounding areas. For us the question is not if, but when we will return!

Wonderful peaceful stay
This is a really lovely place to stay. You are right in the countryside and can see pen y fan across the way. Had all the facilities needed to make the stay comfortable and Sheila was on hand if there were any issues. It is a really old building with some history which made it even more charming. We managed to see the beautiful dark sky with so many stars and even had a few bats fly past. Would recommend.
