Comfortable house, great location.
We travelled with friends and their 2 children. The rooms were comfortable, 2 bathrooms made it much easier with 6 of us in the house, the kitchen was well equipped and we ate in most nights. If the weather had been kinder the garden would have been a great place to sit and read. Care required with low ceilings and beams. This house is well placed for the Brecon Beacons, Hay on Wye with its many book shops, and even a day trip to Cardiff, which we loved. There is a shed, just past the village hall, which sells fresh eggs. A great lace for walking and chilling!

A lovely cosy cottage you can relax in. It was within easy reach of local town and shops. Ideal for walks, with lovely landscapes and the local pub has excellent food.
Mrs Harris

We had a most enjoyable stay in The Old Post House. The cottage was very comfortable with plenty of room for us all. The village was quiet & an ideal place to chill out if you wished. For us it was nice & central for the parts of Wales we wanted to visit. In the evenings the pub was a great place to eat & chat with the very friendly locals. We had an excellent week!
Mr Jackson

A wonderfully relaxing home-from-home in a pretty village.
Mrs Strain

The Old Post House was well maintained, comfortable furnished and had a lovely 'feel' to it. Our group consisted of 6 adults and there was more than adequate sleeping and living space. The village pub, literally across was a great bonus - good beer, very good food and an excellent welcome.
