“Most relaxing, dog friendly place we have ever atayed”
Reviewed 16 December 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Helen has done something truly amazing - she has combined a truly relaxing experience with the best dog friendly facilities we have ever experienced.
The lodge itself is stunning, beautifully decorated and equip with everything you need. Helen has thought of every detail and her kind personality add the cherry to the top of this getaway.
The addition of both the hot tub and spa facilities meant that there was no possible way not to relax - not to mention the sound of the stream itself.
It wa my birthday whilst we were here and I opened the door to find not only a card but a bottle of bubbly to enjoy in the hot tub.
Helen had also secretly arranged with the OH to get a birthday cake for me also. It's the added touches that make this place a perfect dog friendly get away.
All 5 of us - including Thor our pup- can not wait to return in the near future.
Don't hesitate - book today!

“The most dog friendly place we have ever stayed - a little piece of paradise”
Reviewed 10 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We had a wonderful time - the most dog friendly place we have ever stayed. Our dog Jasper has a welcome pack and his own bed - he loved it. It is homely but has all of the modern conveniences like underfloor heating, hot tub, spotify etc. It is also a stunning part of the world. Helen and Chris are great hosts - couldn't wish for more.

“Most wonderful relaxing experince! 5 star!”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My family and I had the best time ever. We even took our two red setter dogs and they appeared to settle and enjoy it as much as us. Helen really made it welcoming and the dog basket was just lovely. All the finsihing touches were great, and made the break just perfect. Nothing was too much trouble.
The lodge itself was cosy and comfortable. The log fire kept us all warm and was very easy to use.
The hot tub was bliss, sitting in it and listening to the stream, was just heaven!
The location was great, just ten minutes from Brecon. This lodge is 5 star all the way and we can't wait to go back.

Thank you for having us x

“Perfect little getaway”

We booked Swyn-y-nant for a little mini-moon after our wedding. We just wanted some where we could relax and unwind after a hectic few weeks and Swn-y-Nant didn't disappoint. We travelled with our young daughter and two playful dogs and were greeted by Helen when we arrived. She is incredibly warm and friendly and helped us to settle in to our home for the week. The cabin is beautiful and so well though out. Every little detail is thought of. It's the little touches that make this place and Helen provides plenty of them.

The cabin is located close enough to Brecon town to nip in and out but far enough away that you get perfect tranquility. We made good use of the hot tub even in the autumn weather and coming back inside to the log fire was just perfect! This is a great little place to either spend a week relaxing or to use as a base for the many attractions of the Brecon Beacons. We absolutely loved it and are likely to book again.

Arrived for a long weekend Helen popped over to show us how things worked,everything was clean and to a high standard,all fixtures and fittings top class.The log burner was a welcome addition and made the lodge nice and cozy,beds comfortable bathroom gorgeous and loved the rainfall shower.My children loved the hot tub and even wanting their own one at home. The tv surround sound and iPad with spotify were also a fab addition,as was the heated floor.The hot and cold tap,round the back was a godsend washing the dog off after a walk.we found the location great and had numerous walked nearby,the guest folders were fab with walks and info regarding the appliances,was great not having to wash up also the dishwasher was a welcome addition. The boys went and fed the alpacas which was fun! Matthew enjoyed it lol.
Thank you Helen we will be back

This is our second weeks' stay at Sound of the Stream and yet again I can't wait to book next year! Helen is the perfect hostess and maintains a meticulous standard at the lodge and is always keen to know that everything is ok and that you have everything you need. From the crisp White Company bedding to the super fluffy towels and dressing gowns ( also The White Company) standards are exceptionally high. It is also great to see somewhere striving to carry through their green credentials wherever they can. Extra touches like the welcome basket containing morsels of local produce, the dog bed, towels and bowls and the doggie treat box are a real delight. Roll on next year!
