We have just returned from a very enjoyable week's stay at The Workshop. The house was exceptionally clean on arrival and is comfortable, well equipped and very spacious. Our party consisted of two couples and the comfort of both double bedrooms was perfect. The location is brilliant for visiting the Brecon Beacons with easy access to all main routes around the area. Just one word of warning about the mobile reception in the area if you are booking through Brecon Cottages who describe the signal as "good" ... it was actually awful on the four different networks we were using. There is a landline in the property for incoming calls which is a credit to the owners and enabled our elderly relatives to contact us if needed.
A clean and very well equipped spacious cottage in a quiet location in a small village. very good pub restaurants in nearby villages and also nice walks along the nearby canal. We enjoyed our weeks stay even though the weather was a little damp.
We were two families staying at the cottage - my twin sister and I - with our respective husbands and children for an early birthday celebration. The Workshop is a wonderful cottage in an ideal location for those of you who wish to walk/hike or cycle in the Brecon Beacons. It is amazingly spacious with plenty of storage space. Whilst we couldn't find fault with it whatsoever and would not hesitate in recommending both this cottage and Brecon Cottages to our friends, I would like to offer the following suggestions. A tumble dryer would be the "cherry on the icing on the cake" especially as the cottage is located in a walking/cycling area. We did a lot walking and cycling throughout the course of the week and at times we felt that a tumble dryer would have assisted us in our laundry! Whilst the cottage was warm (once it heated up), it would have been nice to have arrived with a little warmth in the property. We can't fault the helpfulness and friendliness of the caretaker in assisting us with our arrival/departure times and directions together with the helpful staff at Brecon Cottages. We would not hesitate in staying in this cottage in the future.
