“Waw what a beautiful weekend!”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2016

Please get a sign at the front of the layby! The satnav took us further down the road to another layby which totally confused us! We stayed at little twmp barn on 4th November for the weekend. We were all desperate for a relaxing family weekend, with two kids with additional needs we were all exhausted and really needed to recharge!! And boy did we! The kids spent Friday afternoon and night with us at the barn and went off to nannies for Saturday so we could have some kid free time on the Saturday, all in all the kids spent around 20+ hours in the hot tub, they absolutely loved it. As did we on the Saturday night we were star gazing and firework spotting and before we knew it it was midnight. We braved the frosty air and stoked the fire, snuggled up on the sofa and watched Austin powers! As cheezy as it sounds it was absolutely amazing!the kids came back on the sunday and we had loads of board games and hot tub fun! the kids loved the owners little dog and were really upset to leave. We would love to come back again! Everything supplied was amazing, loads of board games and a good DVD selection. Perhaps to many mugs for the amount of people who would be at the barn and we needed to empty a cupboard to put our food into.The WiFi was very sporadic, and there was no tin opener (cooked breakfast nightmare!!) Almost not enough loo roll and we ran out of kitchen roll. The whole place was extremely clean! Thank you :)

“Wonderful Place, views and the hot tub was the icing on the cake!”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2016

We arrived at Little Twmp Barn to the most amazing weather (always helps), the cottage was decorated to a very high standard and was even better than in the photographs, brilliant views were almost out of every window. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of seating outside. The hot tub was a big hit. Lots to do locally. A real gem, we hope to return.

“Gem of a cottage”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2016

This was our first stay in this part of Wales and we couldn't have picked a nicer cottage to stay in. It had everything we needed and more. Coleen & Martin were great hosts, close at hand if needed but not at all intrusive. Their attention to detail in the decoration and soft furnishings was fab. We loved relaxing in the hot tub in the evening after days out exploring. Alfie the dog is a little treasure and we're sure our dog Sammy will miss seeing him each day as much as we will. We hope to return some day.

“Beautiful, spacious barn in stunning location”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2013

This pretty barn has been decorated to a very high standard, with lots of homely touches, that made our stay very enjoyable. My family and I found this an excellent location from which to travel to Brecon, Talgarth (with it's newly renovated mill), Abergavenny, Builth Wells and the wonderful Hay-on-Wye. We were also happy to just relax at the barn, where, rain or shine, we could sit outside to eat and enjoy the view, as the owners have thoughtfully built a fantastic glass-roofed terrace. We would also recommend the Honey Cafe, down the road from the barn for lovely lunches, and by night it becomes a Tex Mex restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definately recommend it.

Thankyou for a lovely review, as your family were our very first guest's to come and stay at The Little Twmp Barn it was very reassuring to receive such a positive response, hope you will come and stay again. Colleen Johnson
