Rowan cottage is a well-provisioned cottage for two with spectacular views across the Brecon Beacons. It's nicely secluded - the owner's property is nearby but hidden behind trees. But one privacy gripe is that the bathroom has no door (just a wicker screen), so sounds/smells go throughout the cottage! Leave your car in the parking area and don't tRead morery to drive right to the cottage door - there's a steep gravelled slope down; you may not get back up (we only did after a lot of wheelspinning).

Rowan cottage is set in an idyllic location, a short windy path from the main road 10 mins from Crickhowell. It is very private and quiet. The view of the mountains is stunning and we enjoyed leaving the upper part of the front door open to enjoy the scenery. We loved relaxing by the log burner and star gazing. It is worth noting that that bathroomRead more is separated from the bedroom by a wicker divider which doesn't offer much privacy. Otherwise you are sure to enjoy a tranquil break. Hide

Great location. In our opinion does not warrant a five star status due to lack of five star extras that come as standard with other cottage companies, General overall condition jaded.

A lovely cottage in a idyllic setting overlooking fields and hills with only the sheep for neighbours. Dont take a dog that doesnt like sheep! Good facilities in the house and we made the most of it and cooked in every night. There are however plenty of places to eat out in Crickhowell, and a great bakery with amazing cake selection. Our dog loved Read moreit and there are lots of great walks close by, our favourite being Llangattock disused quarry, about 10 mins (steep) drive away. Hide
