Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Clean and comfortable room and bed in a quaint farm/inn located just outside the southern border of Brecon National Park. Secluded in a rural setting (with impressive scenic views from common lounge/sitting room) coupled with two local pubs in a tiny hamlet. We tried the Red Cow Pub and found the food tasty and the patrons friendly and informative. The farm/inn provided a very good Welsh breakfast and has ample on site parking. The bathroom has a combined tub/shower that provides plenty of pressure and hot water.

We were looking for a one night stop around the Brecon area after visiting family so found this B&B by chance on the internet. We received a very warm welcome from Anne and the house is scrupulously clean. The B&B is a short walk from two pubs and from the reservoir which is beautiful and a great walking route. The breakfast was fabulous with home made preserves. Just like staying with your favourite Aunty!

Very olde worlde bnb, the Penrahdw farm is located deep inside the country, in a nice little village with a couple of good pubs, and many walks around.
The most experienced hikers can even reach the Pen Y Fan from there (it's a very very long walk). But also you will be fairly close to many other places like the 4 waterfalls walk or bike park wales.

The rooms are so nice and cozy, very clean and very big too! The breakfast is decent and won't leave you disappointed. I will almost definitely come back next time I'm around there! Great value for the money.

Everything positive reviewers have said about this place are true. Clean., frendly staff, great rooms. Unfortunately, tired and with a long day ahead, we got absolutely no sleep due to the noise from the plumbing. The boiler fired up every 15 minutes or so, triggering noisy pipes, intermittent dripping and running water and a banging ballcock opening and closing. At 3am, desperate for some rest, I called the owner to be told he would call a plumber in the morning. Not much use to me unfortunately. Avoid Room 1. Nice room but directly above the boiler and beneath the water tank in the attic. The pipes run thorugh the linen cupboard next to it. But you will know that if you stay there. A great shame as it really let the place down.

Our family of 6 stayed in Cottage 1 last week and I can’t praise the whole experience too highly. Our hosts Kath and Mike, together with all the rest of the staff, couldn’t have been more friendly and welcoming. My wife Joan was born in the area and her brother lives nearby so the rapport was instant! The cottage was warm and comfortable and was well provisioned when we arrived. Breakfast was first class with plenty of choice. There was plenty of parking and you’re in easy walking distance of 2 pubs.
Thank you for a lovely stay!
Joan & John

Just on our way back from a lovely weekend. This B&B comes highly recommended. Set in a beautiful peaceful setting. Immaculately clean and comfortable rooms. The ladies that run it are so warm and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. A bit like staying at your favourite aunty’s house. The breakfast was delicious. Would go back in heart beat. Really enjoyed it!

What a lovely B&B! The hosts are so lovely, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are huge and so are the bathrooms. Lovely location and views. It's a bit like staying at your favourite Nan's house - warm, welcoming and relaxing. Thank you :)

Well ran B&B we were made to feel welcome on arrival. the cottages are perfect for family’s or couples. Just a 5 minute walk from 2 pubs which are both really good. Ideal location for walkers and bikers. Plenty of choice for breakfast!

Had a fantastic one night stay here after climbing Pen Y Fan. The room was extremely comfortable, very clean and Denise (who welcomed us) got us a jug of milk to have with our coffee in our room. The bath was a joy to soak in after our climb, as well as the toiletries which I'd forgotten to pack. All of the staff were exceptional as was the breakfast. Would highly recommend.

My friends and i have literally just arrived back from at stay at Penrhadw Farm and we've already decided to go back next year.

just so you know the type of standards i go for, beachy hols 4 to 5 star and uk and city breaks 3 to 4 star...everyones standards are obviously very different.

We stayed in the Harris Cottage, a 3 bedroomed, 3 bathroomed house which is extremely large...i emphasise extremely! the kitchen is massive with an aga cooker and electric cooker, lots of units, fridge, freezer, dish washer, microwave...need i go on. all utensils catered for ie cups plates cutlery...and all very clean, even the cutlery draw which the ladies know can get dirty very easily with crumbs etc.

Bathrooms also extremely clean, including grouting etc...yes i do look at that which shows how high my standards are. bedding and towels also lovely and towels plentiful.

In the living room 2 couches and a single chair and little tables dotted around, nicely decorated to fit the theme. The big windows give views of the most beautiful scenery..even if we had a rainy weekend!

Breakfast is as everyone else described...amazing!!! a table with fruits, yoghurts, cereals and cakes. toast, and either full english or eggs,porridge etc. This isnt the best part though which i think is missing a bit from the other reviews. Its the kindness of the ladies who run the place which is wonderful...my mother is Welsh so i felt extremely at home!!! nothing was too much and they made sure everyone was ok. i couldnt go for breakfast one of the days and they we're so kind to say they'd make something up for my husband to take to me. they gave him a little cake in the end (ladies if you read this the cake was beautiful, thank you very much). They even offered us food to take for the day, such generous caring people.

Would agree with other reviews that the pub close by, the butchers arms is a definite. we ate 2 nights and had a number of meals as there were 6 of us. the staff were friendly, prices amazing and food quality and taste divine. didnt try the other pub but will next time. down the path from the cottage are some donkeys...very cute and thats where some of the walks start.

we stayed in the area to go to the penderyn distillery..a must, but was too windy for the train which looks great.

overall the ladies deserve the great reviews they have!!!! enjoy if you go and ladies see you next year hopefully for a week next time x
