This is the third time we have stayed and it is always perfect. The location is stunning and Helen has thought of everything to make your stay amazing. We all relax from the minute we walk in including the dog.
What a beautiful place!! The lodge was perfect and cosy with everything you need. As soon as we walked in we felt welcomed. As we were here for my Mam and dad’s birthdays it was so lovely to see some little birthday touches around the lodge. Once you got in the hot tub it was pretty hard to leave and even thought we had a flurry of snow we all kept toasty by the awesome log fire.
The best thing about our break was that we were able to bring along our cat! Helen was incredibly accommodating to our feline family member and he certainly felt like a VIP during our stay.
If you are searching for a relaxing and peaceful break in the beauful Welsh countryside then Brecon Retreat is perfect.
We have just had a lovely long weekend in the beautiful swn y nant lodge which was very well equipped and was spotlessly clean. There was a lovely little hamper with goodies in which was lovely and the dogs also didn’t get left out. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and enjoyed the walks in the beautiful countryside and then coming back to the lodge and sitting beside a cosy log burner. Thank you :)
We stayed in “Swn Y Nant” for a family celebration at the end of January, with other members of the group staying in the larger “Swn Y Afon”. On arrival, Helen was on hand to show us around and explain how to make the most of the hot tub, log burner etc. There was a hamper of goodies for us to enjoy, as well as tea, coffee and milk. Even our two dogs were well-catered for with beds, blankets, towels, bowls and treats!
It is impossible to find anything to criticise: everything was immaculately clean; towels, bed linen and toiletries were of a very high standard; rechargeable torches were provided for the dark evenings (invaluable for us when we were going to and from the other house across the road); the WiFi connection was excellent; the peace and quiet, with only the sound of the stream, were very relaxing .... I could go on and on! Helen has thought of everything.
We visited Brecon, Abergavenny and Talybont on Usk during our brief stay, but also spent a lot of time enjoying the facilities on after within both houses.
We are definitely planning a return visit.
Helen has thought of everything to make this a luxury 5 star experience for humans and doggies alike.
Memory foam bed, fleece, towel, goodie box and outside warm running water for our dog , Fudge and fluffy white towels, luxury robes, walk-in shower, hot tub, goodie box and a bottle of champagne with sparklers for the humans.( New Years Eve break)
Great location and perfect for people who want a great place to go with dog who loved the peace and quiet. High spec cottage with all you need for a self catering time away.
What a wonderful stay, we couldn’t of had a more relaxing stay. We genuinely wanted for nothing and would have loved to stay longer.
The lodge was so welcoming on arrival (we arrived late in the evening due to work schedules) the fire was roaring the lodge smelt amazing the wonderful play list was inviting and immediately relaxing !!!
It was spotlessly clean and the best pet friendly place we have ever stayed.
Helen and Isobella are wonderful hosts and so friendly and welcoming - we left today and already trying to arrange our next stay.
I’ve alsways loved Wales and thanks to this stay I love it a little more.
