Wonderful cottage, amazing views
This is a delightful, comfortable and homely cottage with amazing panoramic views of the Sugar Loaf and other Brecon Beacons. We'll appointed for anyone in a wheelchair, along with others.

Recharging the Batteries Another wonderful week at Penrose Cottage. Weather was 'iffy' but with views like this who cares about clouds. Cottage is very comfortable, as always. Rabbits, squirrels and birds in the garden. Lovely places to visit all around the area. Canal walks just down the road. Always a pleasure to see Keith and Diane who are really helpful. We'll be back later in the year if we possibly can.

The position of the cottage is just amazing. The views across the mountains are breathtaking and the wildlife all around the cottage is fascinating too. The cottage is well laid out and cosy.

Entertained by the Wildlife
Just returned from a lovely week at Penrose Cottage. Weather improved as the week went on and we had 5 days of sunshine. Just amazing views enhanced by all of the wildlife around the house. On one evening we counted 15 rabbits in the garden as well as squirrels and birds. Cottage is very comfortable and the hosts Keith and Diane do everything they can to make it an enjoyable stay. Again, the disabled person in our party had everything required on the ground floor. We will be back later in the year.

Had a very friendly welcome from the owners of the cottage, they were wonderful people who really made our stay comfortable and provided lots of local knowledge. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
