Great place for family
What a lovely home! So spacious. So well appointed. Enough of everything from spoons to large dishes. Fab sized fridge/freezer with very handy chilled bottles drawer! The hot tub and covered swimming were used a lot. Ours was a large family get together with a wide range of ages from 8 to 71 but filled our criteria for great get away house. Thank you Lisa and Anthony

Plenty of space and great facilities for a family gathering
Peaceful location above the village within a short drive of Abergavenny and local attractions. We had an enjoyable stay enhanced by the fully covered swimming pool (not obvious from the photographs that it's fully enclosed) and the sunny conservatory. The children loved the separate garden conservatory that they used as their own space! Good mixture of beds for our family group with a mix of doubles and twin rooms which suited us well. Owner quickly responded to emails whenever we had an issue. No deductions from the Bond at all (but no inventory at the property on arrival). Reasonably clean premises and all towels and bedlinen good quality. Kitchen items could do with an upgrade but otherwise facilities were generally good. A few lightbulbs and batteries needed attention but nothing that seriously inconvenienced us. It was a well-maintained and spacious property which we enjoyed using.

Lovely location, nice large house, but the property needs a deep clean.
Treetops is set in a beautiful location, and with a swimming pool and hot tub we were looking forward to a treat. However, the house itself needs a deep clean. Crumbs inside the sofa, dirty kitchen drawers and the bin lids were absolutely filthy. The garden also needs weeding and the decking could do with a deep clean too. It's a shame as the property is lovely, but it does need some attention paying to it. The boiler let out an awful screeching noise most of the time ( which affected the quality of sleep of our party). When we looked at it, it clearly said the annual service was overdue. Surely this is a safety issue?.

Easter at Treetops
We booked Treetops for a family get together with adults and children ranging from 2 to 13. The cottage was clean, extremely spacious and very well equipped. Everyone had an amazing time both in the cottage and especially outside using the fabulous pool, hot tub and garden areas for games. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

Lovely big house ... Perfect for big occasions and exploring Brecon Beacons!
17 of us stayed here for my 30th birthday over a weekend in the beginning of March. Sadly it rained all weekend but that didn't stop us enjoying ourselves and walking up the Brecon beacons! The pool and hottub were great fun and enjoyed by all. We cooked numerous times in the kitchen and it fitted all of us in and it was well equipped. There was some lovely walks near by and we found some little pubs which are worth a visit. I was a little apprehensive on booking as some of the reviews mentioned they didn't get their bond deposit back but we had no problems with this at all and the whole process of booking and communication with owner was perfect. She explained that the sat nav will not get you the .... Listen to this advice! It's hard to find. Anyway I Would visit again as I imagine on a sunny weekend this place would be even better!
