“Lovely cottage, welcome pack most welcome - a nice touch!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed for a week early in August with my husband and grandaughter,
Delighted with the cosy and welcoming cottage.
The welcome pack was perfect as we arrived late in the evening.
The location so close to the centre of Crickhowell was also perfect.
Plenty of places to eat, would recommend the Beaufort Arms,(dog friendly) very reasonably priced and generous portions (turn left out of the cottage, and left again at the top of access road.Cross the road and walk about 50 yards, just around the corner).
Plenty of walks and places to visit including Cardiff & Swansea just over an hours drive away.

“Delightful Cottage”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This cottage was exactly as pictured, with flowers and Welsh cakes waiting for us. It is in a great location for walking to shops and restaurants and a playground for children. It is comfortably furnished with a stove, fridge, and washing machine. There is plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults. Only thing that could have made the accommodations more comfortable would be the directions on how to work all the electronics and a few additional kitchen items (we bought a mixing bowl and measuring cup).

Liked best: The location to the shops and restaurants.
Liked least: Not knowing how to use the stove, washer, wi/fi, etc. (would be helpful to put all this info in the book left at the cottage. I had to search for all this information).

“Weekend away at Wedding in Crickhowell”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Lovely cottage in a back street in Crickhowell. Great communication on arrival. Lovely touches with leaving Welsh Cakes, Milk, Eggs, Butter and Bread for the kitchen. Robes in the bedroom great to. Two very, by small things, would be great to have some soap/hand wash for bathroom and more than half a loo roll. Could have been caught short!!! Haha. Absolutely lovely place though!!

“Super cottage in wonderful location for village and mountains”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed here for three nights with our 10 year old son. As soon as we arrived we were delighted, it was so clean, thoughtfully decorated and it was really kind of the owners to leave milk,eggs,Welsh cakes and bread to start us off. The village high street was a few paces away with a lovely bakery and butchers and a couple of good food pubs. Easy reach of beautiful mountains and scenery. The cottage was also lovely and warm with lovely fresh bedding and towels.

“The perfect getaway.”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I'm not usually one for reviews but after our stay here at caboodles I feel inclined to pass on just how wonderful it was.

A beautiful old cottage, in a prime location if crickhowell, ever so cute, brilliantly decorated giving you everything you could ever need.

Upon arrival we where surprised to the size, definitely bigger than the pictures would make you belive, lovely and warm with a lovely aura thanks to the lighting, arriving into the kitchen with fresh bread, milk, eggs, butter, OJ, all waiting for you was such a thoughtfull touch.

The bed was lovely, ever so comfortable and made elegantly with high quality bedding.

For me the only issue I had was headroom, being a an old cottage, the ceilings and doorways where low, which did catch me out on more than one occasion!

Car parking wasn't a huge issue, you can't park right outside, which may put some people off, however we quite quite enjoyed the morning walks to the car.

We hope you find this review helpful, and give this lovely little cottage some of your time.

“Perfect self catering venue for a couple at Christmas,”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

The owners of this stylish and spotless cottage had thoughtfully provided a Christmas tree, garlands and strings of lights to create a really festive atmosphere for our stay. They also provided a host of provisions including not only bread, milk and eggs but also delicious welsh cakes, mince pies and a bottle of wine. We were really touched by this generosity especially as this is not a remote place where supplies might be difficult but is within yards of one of the most delightful high streets in Wales with outstanding butchers and bakers. The heating is efficient, the beds are comfortable and other nice touches included free Wi Fi, towelling bathrobes and a real espresso machine in the attractive kitchen area.
