We stayed here in June 2017 as a group of 8 adults and 1 infant. The owners truly have thought of everything, from a fully kitted out kitchen to the hot tub and games room in the garden. Everything was to such a high standard and we had the best time during our week long stay. The owner Helen was fantastic and welcomed us to her holiday home. Will definately return for another stay! Cannot recommend highly enough!
We have just returned from a week after staying in Swn Yr Afon (Mill House) and what a place! It is set in a quiet area but only a 10 minute drive to Brecon if you need anything. There are plenty of walks from the doorstep and details of all of these are kept in a folder provided on arrival. Our Labrador loved the river running alongside the garden and went in for a daily dip. There was also some dog agility equipment in the garden which we made use of. Helen provided a welcome pack for both dogs and humans with some lovely touches including a dog tag in case your furry friend decided to go for an extra solo exploration. The hot tub was amazing and in perfect working order which made coming back from those long walks in the beacons ever more relaxing. The house itself was fully stocked with every utensil you could want and Sky was put to good use as we settled in every night and watched a different movie. We didn't use the games/movie cabin much however, if there were a few of you staying this could be a real asset. We found the TV so good in the main house we didn't need it. Helen was always available if we had any questions and she even helped us shift our booking so we could arrive a night earlier than expected.
If you want a garden and can afford paying a little extra, I would advise you to book Swn Yr Afon. We didn't need the three extra bedrooms but the house was gorgeous and we are so happy we booked it.
I cannot recommend this property enough and I'm looking forward to booking again for 2018.
Great location. We immediately felt at home in this lovely house, thanks to the welcome we received from Helen. The grandchildren loved the garden and it was easy to walk and cycle from the property. The facilities were first rate and we all enjoyed the hot tub, when the towelling robes were much appreciated. It is very close to Brecon so shopping was no problem.
We all thoroughly enjoyed staying at Swn Yr Afon in May. The house is beautifully finished, and Helen is such a friendly and welcoming host. The house is spacious and equipped with everything you may need, and more! We spent our time relaxing in the hot tub after walking for miles around the Brecon Beacons, and cooking great meals in the large, fully equipped kitchen. We would all highly recommend staying here, and are planning our return already!
We stayed here as a family of 7 for a four night break. We wished it could have been longer! The house is amazing and filled with homely, personal touches. Even the dogs and baby in our group were spoiled! Helen the owner has thought of everything, from detailed guides full of local info, to luxurious robes and slippers. We loved relaxing in the hot tub and playing in the garden. The setting on the edge of the river was so peaceful, with numerous walks on the doorstep. We can't wait to go back.
We had one of our best ever holiday breaks at Brecon Retreat!! Everything was fantastic including the weather! Mollie the dog just loved the house and fantastic walks straight from the door - all info on routes clearly set out! Hot tub was a big hit! We would love to return!!
We have just come back from a long weekend, staying at this wonderful house. Helen made us feel very welcome, the house is lovely and Helen has thought of all the little touches which make it so relaxing & homely. The hot tub & BBQ were both used each day & we even managed to sit out for one of the meals. The surroundings of the house are beautiful. We will definitely be back.
