Description from owner


Bwthyn Pen Y Fan has been given 4 stars by the Wales Tourist Board. In the heart of the valleys of Wales, just a few miles south of the Brecon Beacons.

It is a quaint stone terraced self catering cottage in a semi-rural setting. Refurbished in a traditional style for the era in which it

was built (for miners and their families in the late 1800's).

All the usual mod cons for todays living, (no dishwasher). We are Eco-friendly also all linen and towels are Organic.

On your arrival a pack for you to enjoy a true welsh afternoon tea.

It has spacious accomodation for a total of four adults, plus one child (rooms include a double / twin / small single).

We are child friendly, providing high chair, travel cot, stair gates and bed rail.

We would welcome one well behaved larger dog/ two small dogs. We would appreciate it if all pets could be kept off furniture and downstairs.

Enclosed garden with secure shed and bike washing facilities. Direct access from the garden onto the adjacent mountainside.

This area is an ideal location for those who enjoy the out doors e.g. Walking / Cycling/ Mountain biking/ Fishing etc.

We were there for a kayak polo weekend, so didn't see much of the area apart from the lakes 10mins away.

“Beautiful cottage”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2018

The cottage was beautiful, very homey & welcoming. We had everything we needed for a family of 5. The location is perfect & very close to loads of beautiful & historic places, also close to Cardiff & local cinema for rainy days. We would 100 % stay here again, and the children were so happy here.

“Wonderful weekend”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2018

What a lovely last minute getaway! The cottage had absolutely everything we needed and was so comfortable and homey. The beds were amazing! We had great fun visiting Caephilly Castle and the Showcaves and Dinosaur Park-perfect for our children aged 3 and 6! Thank you so much Jane for being so accommodating.

Owner's reply: Thank you Katherine for again another lovely review. Thank you too, for being long suffering with the heating system, thankfully it was sorted quickly.. Best wishes, Jane

“Excellent Service Throughout - Great location for Bike Park Wales”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2018

We cannot pick any faults with the service we received throughout, Jane was excellent and couldn't help enough. Prior to our visit I was in touch and received information on things for us to do and see. Once we arrived Jane was not quite ready for us which was not an issue but she gave us some of our payment back which really was not necessary but we were very grateful for. There was a welcome pack for us containing essentials such as tea and coffee and also a bottle of wine on top of that, this was a really nice touch. We were down there with our bikes to go to Bike Park Wales, the location is great for this. Jane was happy for us to store our bikes in the cottage but there was also a shed out the back if needs be. Would recommend this cottage to anybody and will be staying again if we can when next visiting. Such a great host and lovely cottage.

Owner's reply: Thank you Josh for such a lovely review, it is much appreciated . Will look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Best wishes, Jane
