The owners were so lovely and accommodating nothing was too much trouble for them and went above and beyond to ensure you were catered for. The piggery is very comfortable and modern with a lovely garden area and lots of scenic walk paths. The only thing was the location of the hot tub.

We stayed at the Piggery for 5 nights. The self catering apartment/cottage has everything we needed, even little cream eggs in egg cups to greet us. Lovely quality furnishings and just enough space for us. Just outside was a little table and bbq so we did that most nights. And the hot tub is bliss after a long hike up the pen y fan horseshoe. The lRead moreocation is lovely and feels secluded, yet close to local amenities. Plus, my boyfriend proposed to me after 11 years so it definitely had good energy! Hide

Lovely property. Clean and modern refurb of a quaint building. Hot tub was a welcome extra. Take shoes for the hot tub as it is a walk across the driveway. Owners provided robes to wear. Owners on site but left us to our privacy. Property 2 mins from Brecon and Monmouth Canal, so ideal for those who love walking or cycling without jumping in a car.Read more We would revisit again.

Wonderful stay! Both hosts were so welcoming and helpful and the property is perfect for a romantic escape. Loved having private access to the Hot Tub and we made good use of the BBQ too! Lovely walks along the canal are right on the doorstep and there are pubs/shops within walking distance too.
