This lovely, stone-built cottage sleeps four people.

The generals Cottage is a first floor, detached stone cottage in Penallt. With two bedrooms, a double and a king-size double, as well as a family bathroom, it sleeps four people comfortably. There is also a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a woodburner and dining area. Outside is a small garden with patio and furniture, and off road parking. There is also access to a woodland area, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, making The Generals Cottage a great base.


The Generals Cottage was beautiful and in a beautiful setting and the views were amazing. We loved the woods which were at the end of the drive.

Visited August 2015. Approach was accessed down long deep pot-holed drive. Stone steps up to accommodation had no hand-rail - a must when steps wet, and outside-lighting dim so precarious to climb when arriving back at night. Lounge very small for 4 people.TV small with free=view box. Dining table in corner very difficult for 2 people to sit comfortably, let alone 4. 5 bar ceiling pendant in lounge with only 1 of 5 bulbs working, Welcome tray consisted of tea bags and vinegar sachets! Outside space very small - table for 2 under washing line/overlooking large green tank - little view and dark due to being in wooded area. Very remote and quiet. No flowers on table as depicted on web site - indeed no welcome except a reminder that you signed to leave the place in good order and the consequences of not doing so, in a typed sheet on the dining table! OK for 2 people for a long weekend, but the drive approach to the cottage was very, very poor. Wifi signal was good.

The peace and quiet and the wild life
Mr Bateson

Lovely cosy cottage. Peaceful and quiet, with an abundance of wildlife and stunning views from the property. Lots of walks from the front door, beautiful countryside and local quality pubs.
Mrs Long

We seldom leave reviews, but thought it worth leaving this one as we loved our stay. Lovely location in the valley with beautiful views from all the windows. Short drive to a good local pub and the cottage had all the things you need to make the stay relaxing & comfortable. Hosts were helpful and intrusive.
