“Spacious and in a good location at a great price.”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My husband and son used this apartment as a base for a motorcycling trip. There is off-road parking for the bikes (and for cars too. Having two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom was a big bonus. It was good to find a welcome pack of basic foodstuff, and the whole accommodation is clean, comfortable and well equipped, quiet but just a short walk from the main street.

“The best place to stay if you like a spacious, quit, clean en very well equipped apartment in central Wales!!”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a perfect time in this very nice apartment. The hostess is very kind and helpful. I never had an apartment so very well equipped. On google maps a bit difficult to find, but Builth Wells is not that big. A perfect location to make walks and tours. Nice places to visit close. In the village itself are a few places to have a good meal.
So..... Treat yourself on this very nice and well priced holiday home.

From the moment we walked in, we loved this house. It's nice, spacious and quiet. The garden is pretty. The shops in the village are just a couple of minutes away. We loved our visits to Elan Valley (30 minutes), Hay On Wye (30 minutes) The Red Kite Feeding Centre (Gigrin Farm) in Rhayader (18 minutes), Brecon (30 minutes), Devils' Bridge Falls/Aberystwyth (1 hour) and Llandeilo (55 minutes).

“Very happy”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Very good property, partly underneath owner's property, with a lovely garden. Although within walking distance of town centre, this is a beautifully quiet location. Two good ensuite bedrooms; comfortable living area and well equipped kitchen.
