“Comfortable and cosy cottage with stunning views”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2013

Had a lovely week in Bod-Llawen. Cottage accommodated 5 of us very comfortably, and the fire and heaters kept it cosy and warm. Very well situated for Cardiff which was the reason for our stay, but we enjoyed some nice walks around the lanes and a good meal at the local pub! Excellent amenities all a short drive away. Wonderful views!

“Excellent”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2013

A wonderful cosy cottage with spectacular views. Took elderly mother with us who thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Watched the Brecon steam train puff its way past during the day from the front door of the cottage. Cottage was well equipped and warmed up quickly with the wood burner on late cooler evenings. Beds were comfortable and views from front bedrooms were lovely. Very peaceful place.

“Paradise in the Brecon Beacons”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2013

Bod-Llawen is the most delightful cottage in a small village in the Brecon Beacons. It was spotlessly clean and had all that we needed for a weeks stay and the beds were comfortable which is important when you are 'getting on'! The village has two pubs, both serving adequate food, within walking distance. Our stay was wonderful and we will no doubt return but I know that we will never have such good weather again, surely a week in Wales with no rain is a record!

“Great Place to Stay”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2013

Had a wonderful holiday in Bod-Llawen, excellent place to stay very comfortable, with all amenities. Great views from the house and very accessable to many places of interest such as the Gower, Brecon and Cardiff. Peaceful and lots to do especially walks.

“Perfectly situated typical welsh cottage with amazing views”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2013

We loved everything about Bod-Llawen. It is perfectly situated in the village of Pontsticill with fantastic views across the valley from the terrace. We loved to watch the Brecon Mountain Railway steam engine puffing its way up the valley each day. There is so much to see and do within easy driving distance - there are castles, coal mines, waterfalls, forests - something different to entertain you every day. The reservoir walk is wonderful, and there are some great running routes as well. The cottage was extremely comfortable, and very cosy once the log fire was burning. Great time had by all, especially our two golden retrievers.
