What our guests say about their group stay in the self catering cottages in the Brecon Beacons


Three generatios of the Wilson family spent a fabulous autumnal weekend at Cilwych Farm Cottages to celebrate Grandad's 80th birthday.  A perfect setting and very comfortable accommodation, with an excellent communal room The Wiilsons 

A wonderful sunny weekend celebrating Pamela's birthday.

Came to Cilwych Farm cottages to  celebrate a 60th birthday, 35th wedding anniversary, ruby wedding anniversary and 1st wedding anniversary.  Fantastic weekend had by all.  Visited Llangorse Activitiy centre for horseriding, zip wire, rock climbing - highly recommended.  Great accommodation - very well equipped and a lovely Welsh welcome.  The Stimpsons/Thompsons/hawkes/Williams/Hilliers

A great family gathering to celebrate 101 years of marriage and a very loving family. A great venue, highly recommended we would gladly stay again.  The Olivers/Stopyra/Batty family gathering

 We had a great time in Excellent surrounds - the accommodation was excellent for a family get together and the views are great.  Many thanks Hopefully we'll see you again next year! Lyon/Blake/Knoght familiies 

We've had an absolutely brilliant time the cottages at Cilwych are all amazing and the views are even better.  The locals all seemed friendly and helped us choose a really cool swimming spot along the river Usk.  The whole holiday was fun and even though it's a rural area, we found so much to do.  I can see everyone and anyone enjoying a stay at Cilwych Farm Cottages Thanks.  Mike and the gang 

Mid July we descended the mountain

Spectacular views after the miles we'd been counting

 Powells July


Ideal for our needs for a 40th birthday celebration with extended family of all ages.  Beautiful location great outdoor facilities.  The area is fabuluous - we'd love to come back to it.  Thank you very much The Whites July 

Our T'ai Chi group has been coming here for several years.  The improved facilities are great.  Despite the almost non stop rain, we've had a brilliant time.  Cilwych Farm Cottages  certainly suits our needs.  Hope to be back soon Midsummer Day 

We stayed for the weekend to celebrate a friend's wedding at Brynich Barn.  What an idyllic and relaxed location, perfect for a getaway with our nearerest and dearest. The combination of individual cottages and a spacious communal area couldn't be bettered; we will definitely be returning to Cilwych Farm Cottages!  PS  Can highly recommend the Nantyfin Cider Mill and Brecon Taxis.  The Nickolls 

Cilwych has been perfect.  We've walked and talked and laughed like drains and we've been to the Hay Festival, and done things intellectual and we've cooked and eaten huge meals and, after 4 days, we've decided we have to come back next year! Durham University Reunion, 

An ideal location for a weekend away in delightful surroundings.  The communal room and log fire made for lovely evenings.  Sunny weather and long walks, Brecon Mountain Railway and Big Pit Museum made for a great weekend.  Thanks so much The WEADS  

An excellent location and great pubs locally to quench the thirst after a long walk. (Coach and Horses Llangynidr, Red Lion Llangynidr, The New Inn Bwlch)  Don't let the rain stop you walking!  This is a place we all will tell our friends and family about. Well done!  James 

Thank you for a fantastic stay and all your help.  Cilwych Farm cottages was the perfect location and accommodation for the 15 of us and the birthday girl had a great time!  Luckily for us we have all had fire starting training and had no problem starting the fire whilst windy outside .....  

Thanks for having us!  Perfect location for a big group of friends.  Such character and well equipped accommodation.  Pobably worth warning guests about the difficulty of getting the fire going when windy outside - can become totally smoked out!  Jim

Thank you for such a warm welcome complete with hot water bottle, daffodils, birthday card and cakes.   We've made full use of the marvellously equipped main kitchen and not eaten anywhere else!  Beds beautifully comfy to return to after 2 days high in sunny snow.  All delightful cottages.  Margaret Driver 

Perfectly equipped cottages which are cosy and welcoming to return to after a day's walking.  It's a really beautiful location as well - we discovered a fantastic walk which starts at the cottages and takes you to a peak with spectacular views.  Thanks so much! Alfred Ireland
