What A Fantastic Place To Find
We spent 2 lovely weeks at Sied Yr Ardd in the lovely town of Ystradgynlais. It is very dog friendly and we found loads of lovely walks nearby. The owners Pat and Mike are a lovely couple and nothing is too much for them to do, we loved them. The local "hostelliers" were even more appealing. We found a lovely Cafe in town called The Loaf which made us very welcome, so much so we went back and back. We will be going back again next year to sample the delights of the local area. In our mind this is the far best rental through Sykes for 2 people we have had. Many thanks again for a lovely break.

Brecon break
We have two dogs and this cabin was ideally suited to our needs for a break in the Brecon Beacons hill walking and visiting local attractions. Best of all there are such great walks right next to the property for the dogs including a river. The property itself is extremely well equipped including a much needed electrical fan for the summer. The owners are very welcoming but stay out of the way unless needed. I would recommend this for a short break.

Great cottage in a great location for exploring South Wales
The 'garden room' was a fantastic place to sit, unwind and reflect on the day's activities; whatever the weather, sitting in the garden room was relaxing and comfortable - a great addition to the cottage. Hosts were very friendly and helpful and on-hand if/when needed. Cottage was very clean and comfortable with a small garden area for the dog to stretch his legs. Location was perfect for exploring the Brecon Beacons, Carmarthenshire and South Wales in general. Highly recommended - we had a brilliant week here in May 2018.

Amazing stay!
Such a shame only 3 people have written a review of this beautiful holiday home so simply had to contribute our own. We had such a lovely time staying here. Fantastic facilities, comfy bed, awesome sort and so much to do nearby. Loved the fire being lit for our arrival and Pat & Mike were so friendly. Loved the hamper left out for us - a welcome of bread, eggs, butter, milk, strawberry jam and welshcakes what's not to love? Just the ticket when arriving on a Sunday afternoon! We followed Mike's advise for local dog walks and places to go and all recommendations were spot on. Particular highlights were the nearby caves and also our walk/climb up Pen-Y-Fan - amazing views! Also worth mentioning how accommodating the home is for dogs. Fresh water and doggy treats left out for our arrival plus 2 beds to choose from in the garden Room - our little pooch was spoilt for choice! We'll definitely be returning here one day. Thanks Pat & Mike
