“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
