"I have found this place a perfect spot for a couple to use as a base to explore the outstanding scenery of both the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. It is very well equipped, warm and comfortable and occupies a perfect location. Very hard to fault."

David and Robina, September 2020


"Lovely, well-equipped cottage in beautiful setting. Very comfortable bed, so peaceful with lovely views from all the windows, we wish we had stayed longer. Easy to get to shops, pubs, walks etc. We tried pony-trekking for the first time at the Llangorse Activity Centre which was a wonderful experience. If you want a get-away-from-it-all stay Crab Apple Cottage is the place to come...special mention must go to Biddy, Nick and Sue's black Labrador who was such a sweetie! We hope to be back one day."

What a wonderful stay! The cottage is in one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed in and we were really fortunate with the weather.

The cottage itself was immaculate, with all the facilities we needed - a comfy bed, decent shower and a modern kitchen area.

Looking forward to staying again, hopefully we'll be lucky with the weather again next time! Thank you Nick & Sue!!"
