Vicky - September 2018:

A fabulous homely cottage with fabulous amenities in an even more dreamy location to explore the Beautiful Welsh countryside! Sophie was a fabulous host and so helpful! Would highly recommend.

Helen - September 2018:

Stayed for two nights to join in with a family party at nearby Aberglasney gardens. The house is very elegant and spacious and has lots of character. We really enjoyed the lovely lounge and wood burner and the beds are super comfy too. We were very sorry to leave. Thanks Sophie.

Mike - September 2018:

A wonderful, peaceful & cosy cottage. Perfect place to get away from it all. Great communication from Sophie from start to finish. We loved our few days there & will return one day. Mike & Joanna & the 3 amigos (pups).

Ryan - September 2018:

The house is immaculate and exactly as shown in photos if not better. We were welcomed with a little personal note, bread, milk and eggs and the fire set up ready to light. The beds are so comfy and the house warm and quiet allowing a perfect night’s sleep. Great welcome guide with everything you need to know and some great tips of things to do in the area which we followed and thoroughly enjoyed! Thank you Sophie for a relaxing getaway, we will be back in the future I’m sure!

Olivier - September 2018:

The cottage we stayed was just perfect, it is such a lovely place in a quiet and peaceful town. Sophie is a fantastic host with great communication and is happy to answer any questions even before arrival. The cottage itself is beautiful, with three big spacious rooms and a big bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked with all cooking utensils, and Sophie kindly provides some, milk, eggs and bread. There is a Co-op nearby in the next town to complete your shopping needs. I would highly recommend to stay here and if I ever find myself in Myddfai again I would definitely stay here again.

Jan - September 2018:

Who would not like this property right now? We would like to live in this way. Tasteful decorations, beautiful furniture and very complete. Located in a very quiet village. Excellent starting point for trips across the entire Brecons.

Eleanor - August 2018:

An excellent house. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable - especially the beds! The village is small but has a visitors centre with excellent cafe and gift-shop that opens daily. Close to Llandovery with a supermarket, pubs, takeaways etc. Good things to do locally plus good access to other attractions further afield. Sophie is an excellent host, great communications and lovely treats (cakes, bread, eggs and milk) for us when we arrived. Would definitely recommend.

Nicky - August 2018:

If you're looking for tranquillity in beautiful surroundings then this is the place. Sophie is a fantastic host who takes pride in her property and always responds quickly to any question. We arrived on a Saturday and were delighted to be greeted by a welcome note, cake bread,eggs and milk. Thoughtful essentials for our family’s arrival. The cottage is beautiful.  The pictures really don't do it justice. Although it rained all week the log burner and calming surroundings more than made up for it. We're already looking to come back next year.

Marianne - August 2018:

If your priority is a calm, clean, uncluttered and elegant setting in an old house in a picturesque little village in stunning Welsh countryside, then this is the place for you! Our family of four (children 10 and 7) had great days out exploring followed by relaxing evenings at home playing board games and chilling in front of the tv. Comfy beds, great shower and cool jacuzzi bath completed the experience.

Joe - July 2018:

Sophie's space is fabulous. Everything is as described and actually better than that! It's a lovely old place with stylish and useful updates where needed. Quirky levels, modern floor covering, and latches on the wooden doors gives you a nice feeling within the space.. :) Well located in a very welcoming village, you're ideally situated for anything you'd wish to do in this stunning part of Wales! Will definitely return.

Stephen - July 2018:

We had a lovely stay. The cottage is clean, spacious and well presented. There is plenty of space and the beds are very comfy. The area is peaceful and idyllic and it's a perfect place to escape and unwind. Sophie kept us well informed throughout and there were plenty of things to see and do in the area.

Alvaro - July 2018:

We enjoyed our stay at Sophie’s place. The bedrooms were impeccable, and the house was very clean. It has a cupboard full of plates and other dishes to use, which we really appreciated. Sophie also left some eggs, milk and cakes for us, and we loved the detail. We also enjoyed the board games available!

Rebecca - July 2018:

Beautiful cottage - we are so enjoying a restful break here - both the kids and the dog are exhausted from long days out at the beach - and we are sat in the beautiful courtyard garden enjoying the evening sun. Am torn between recommending this to all my friends and family or keeping it to myself so I can come more often!

Crystal - July 2018:

Sophie’s place was absolutely wonderful. We got slightly lost but a local from Myddfai walked us over to the home. The home is charming and has everything you will need for your stay. Sophie has a book of information for you as you walk in which was very helpful. The house is beautifully decorated and cozy. I sincerely hope one day I can return on another visit.

Heather - July 2018:

Llangoedmor House is a wonderful oldey worldey cosy home with everything you could possibly need. The beds are extremely comfortable with top quality bedding. There is a cosy garden to relax in with non stop entertainment provided by the many birds who call daily. Myddfai is a rural peaceful village, but there are plenty of walks on your doorstep and a good supply of shops, pubs and eateries in Llandovery. Sophie is an excellent host who left us a welcome gift of cake, egg and milk. I would definitely recommend a holiday there.

Lynne - July 2018:

Wow what an absolutely lovely cottage and village. So quiet you can hear the birds all day long. Enjoyed the cottage so much we hardly left it ! Having the Visitor’s Centre on the doorstep is a real treat wonderful food, crafts and staff so friendly. We were a bit restricted in what we did as Millie our dog is in recovery after a serious operation on her leg, but having said that we still enjoyed every minute and hope to return again soon.  Thank you so much Sophie & family.

Marcus - June 2018:

Just back from a stay in this lovely cottage. Wow, what can I say, set in the village of Myddfai this is one of the most if not best places I have visited in the UK.  Stunning views walks places to explore, red kite feeding show, the list goes on. The cottage has everything you need plenty of room lovely courtyard fully enclosed the for your pets. Also a big thank you to Sophie who was extremely helpful in sending me information if I requested. I will definitely return.

Simon - June 2018:

As a family of 5 + 1 dog the house was ideal for us. The kitchen was well kitted out, the large dining room was great and the lounge very comfy, loved the wood burner! All the bedrooms were very stylishly made up and the beds were also very comfortable. A thoroughly enjoyable place to stay.

Nicola - June 2018:

Perfect for our stay in wales for the Man vs Horse event. About 25 mins to the village where it starts and 10 min taxi to the nearest town with plenty of pubs. The house is fab with everything you need and great communication from Sophie. I would recommend.

Chrissie - May 2018:

A beautiful house. Beautifully decorated, everything we needed for our stay was available, set in a stunning location. Well worth a visit.

Jess - May 2018:

We have just got back from our stay this weekend - we had a lovely visit! The cottage was fabulous and everything we needed was clearly laid out for us, even down to maps of the local walks! We will definitely return again!

Nicola - April 2018:

Went for my mum's 60th birthday (who stayed in a cottage nearby) but my boyfriend , brother and his wife (who visited from Chile) stayed with us. Such a spacious home and felt exactly that - homely. Everything you needed in the kitchen including eggs and bara brith! Fireplace was lush in the evening and everything beyond expectations. Was far, far better than the cottage my parents were staying in locally ! Top marks for everything. We had some lovely Brecon walks and great local pubs! Would definitely recommend and stay again Xxx x

Erwan - April 2018:

Jolie maison située dans un tout petit village à l'ouest du parc de Brecon. Il faut prévoir l'approvisionnement du frigo dans un village proche car il n'y a quasi pas de commerce à Myddfai, mais la maison est bien située pour sillonner sur le parc. Maison très bien équipée et très chaleureuse. Grande réactivité et anticipation de Sophie pour que notre séjour se passe à merveille !!

Ben - April 2018:

Lovely cottage, great location.

Anna - April 2018:

We’ve just returned from a 4 night stay at this beautiful house. From the very moment we booked Sophie was incredibly helpful and always prompt with email replies. The house itself has a lovely cosy feel to it combined with small luxuries such as the super-king bed and jacuzzi bath. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. We all thoroughly enjoy our stay (even our dog loved it) and would highly recommend a stay in this gorgeous house and location. Thank you! x

Kirstie - April 2018:

We had a lovely week at Llangoedmor House just before Easter. We were delayed by the snow, but Sophie could not have been more friendly or helpful in all respects. The cottage is beautiful. So peaceful, spacious and comfortable.. It's very tastefully furnished and had everything we needed for our stay, in fact it's the nicest cottage we have stayed in in a long while. The walled courtyard garden was a godsend for our little dog who is such a calm and well behaved dog in all respects apart from being an escape artist - but no chance of this happening here, phew ! We really enjoyed watching the blue tits whilst washing up and the Red Kites are in abundance all around the quiet hamlet of Myddfai. We came home feeling very rested after our stay. Thank you Sophie

Tanya - March 2018:

Just back from our 4 night stay at the cottage. From the moment we walked in we knew we would love the place. Cosy cottage full of character, big open fire and comfortable furnishings. The upstairs of the cottage was gorgeous, the bedrooms and beds were brilliant and the bathroom was lovely, big spa tub..great! The area was peaceful and beautiful, the locals were so friendly and welcoming. Llandovery itself was a fantastic little town with great places to eat and drink. We will definitely be staying again as we really enjoyed ourselves and so did our pooch Stella. Thanks for the opportunity Sophie. Xx

Maggie - March 2018:

Beautiful home in an idyllic location. Excellent communication from Sophie. We could not have asked for anything nicer. We will be definitely going back and would highly recommend. Thank you so much we had a really nice break. Your hospitality was second to none.

James - March 2018:

Our stay here was fabulous. We stayed an extra day because of the weather (snow). Sophie was very understanding and flexible in this situation. A lovely part of the world, great landscape. Kids loved the jacuzzi bath. Thanks for a great stay.

Ian - February 2018:

Love the personal communication from Sophie, and the nice gift awaiting our arrival.

A - February 2018:

What a treat! Such a lovely, comfortable stay. From the blankets and stove in the living room to the jacuzzi bath, soft towels and really comfortable beds! We had a great long weekend, ideally situated to explore the area and not too far to the coast. Really homely comfortable place, the milk and eggs were welcome too. Would definitely recommend, thanks again Sophie!

Simon - February 2018:

Very clean and comfortable home! The bedrooms felt newly furnished and the house warm throughout. Exactly the same as the photos. Host was contactable throughout our stay and even messaged us when there was news of earthquake in wales to check on us. Great place for family/friends. The park is right at your doorstep too.

Anna - February 2018:

Sophie is an excellent host. Very helpful and friendly. The cottage is an amazing place, simple luxury surrounded by beautiful scenery. Thank you for such a lovely stay Sophie.

Natalie - February 2018:

Such a lovely little house in a beautiful location. Perfect for walkers and the house is great for dogs too with an enclosed garden and stone floors downstairs. Sophie was a great hostess and had quick responses to any queries. The house was lovely and clean, with lovely soft fresh bedding and towels. A warm, cosy, secluded house perfect to get away from it all. Highly recommend. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely little house, it was everything we hoped for.

Laura - January 2018:

Lovely clean and comfortable house.

Joanne - Christmas 2017:

Sophie was an excellent host. Communication was easy and all information about the property was clear and thorough. We stayed here over Christmas and really appreciated everything Sophie did to make the experience extra special for us. The area was beautiful and everyone we met in the village was friendly and helpful. We went on some excellent walks and enjoyed visiting the local red kite feeding centre. The property was lovely and quiet due to the village location. I would definitely recommend if you want a relaxing countryside break. The cottage had everything we needed and was true to the photos provided. The house was lovely, clean and cosy with wonderful extras like the hot water bottles. We couldn't fault anything in the property.

Raisa - December 2017:

LOVED this place! Perfect location, clean, cozy and fully stocked with everything we needed! The house is in a lovely little village, in a beautiful countryside setting. It was exactly what we wanted for a relaxing weekend in the Brecon Beacons. Sophie has been incredible right from the start! She was always very quick to respond, kept us updated on anything we needed to know (including very useful information we hadn't even thought to ask!). Detailed instructions were provided as well as very useful recommendations of things to do in the area! She even left us a little Christmas treat under the tree! She is a very thoughtful host and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. There wasn't a single thing to fault about this wonderful home and its lovely hostess! Would visit again in a heartbeat :) Thank you Sophie!

Natalya - November 2017:

This is a beautiful and tranquil house in a lovely village setting and is perfectly located for exploring the surrounding area. I highly recommend staying here.

Carolyn - November 2017:

What a find..... such a superb home from home accommodation. Sat on a comfy sofa in front a roaring fire with a G and T! I would recommend this stunning house to everyone, so well equipped and welcoming with the most comfortable bed and silky soft linen. Thank you Sophie for all your help in hosting me and my darling grandmother. We will go out of our way to return and stay here again.

Charlie - November 2017:

Great location to sit back and unwind! The house has everything you could need and is very well thought out. Amazing walking in all directions and Sophie’s instructions and support were second to none! Thank you!!!

James - October 2017:

This is a cosy and thoughtfully renovated property in a peaceful and beautiful location. Sophie has provided everything you would need for a stay, including a clearly written and helpful house manual. Communication from the host was excellent. The decent WiFi connection is a big bonus for those who still need to stay connected to the outside world. Thoroughly recommended!

Sara - October 2017:

We've just spent a wonderful week in Sophie's house. The house was beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and warm and welcoming. The location is fabulous having the National Park right on the doorstep but near enough to local amenities/shops and good pubs. Sophie is a great host and went the extra mile to provide a lot of thoughtful extra touches to make our stay perfect. After a long drive from London, it was wonderful to find milk, teabags and wood for the fire. Thank you for little treats on our arrival - very much appreciated. We slept so well in the very comfortable beds and on days when the weather was wet, the house is so relaxing that we enjoyed the peace of sitting by the fire with a good book. There is so much to see and do in the local area and we left wanting to return again soon. Thank you for sharing your lovely house with us.

Yves - October 2017:

If you need to relax in a warm and cosy cottage, then Llangoedmor House is the place you're after. The house is welcoming, Sophie provides you with all information you need either for running the house or for the places to see and visit in the area. Myddfai is a quiet little village. Everybody make you feel welcome thanks to their kindness (we recommend a visit to the village center). The area is really beautiful. Perfect choice for a family stay!

Daniel and Gwawr - September 2017:

The house was idyllic! Perfect for our needs and exactly as described in the listing. Even though it's a very old house it's still very cosy and homely. Would definitely recommend a stay here and wouldn't hesitate booking again.

Rachel - September 2017:

A lovely place to stay for anybody considering a break in the Brecon Beacons. We would highly recommend, the hosts made it feel like a home from home.

Gordon - September 2017:

We had a lovely time at Sophie's beautiful house. It's been recently renovated with a lot of care and thought and had everything we could need. The village is lovely with lots of great walks close by. The visitor centre and red kite feeding centre are both worth a visit. Sophie gave us lots of good information prior to the trip. We'd love to visit again in the future …

Jenny -  September 2017:

If you are looking for peace and tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle, this is the place for you. An immaculate house which is full of character. Sophie provided a host of information regarding both the property and local surroundings. You can't fault it nor the host. My best Airbnb stay, it'll be a hard one to match let alone beat.

Andy - September 2017:

We had a brilliant time, Sophie's house is lovely and we particularly enjoyed the cozy lounge and having a quiet drink in the courtyard garden. We used the stay for a walking break on Pen Y Fan in the Brecon Beacons and its location was good. We didn't explore our surroundings, but reading the visitor book suggested there was plenty of interesting things to do outside of walking the hills! After a tiring day’s walk, the bed was comfortable, beautifully presented and clean. Thanks again, Andy.

Shuli - August 2017:

Our first Airbnb adventure was to Sophie's beautiful retreat. Cottage is traditional and beautifully styled to feel luxurious and tranquil. Crisp bedding, fluffy towels and well-stocked with kitchenware and books. Sophie could not have been any more helpful before or during our stay. Loads of stunning walks, adventure activities and interesting sites within driving distance. Thanks so much!

It was a wonderful stay in a wonderful village in your wonderful cottage. We loved the way you've done it up and all the little touches. And thanks for being so attentive in communication before and during our stay.

Rayne - July 2017:

If you're wanting to stay in the Brecon Beacons, this is the perfect place. In a quaint Welsh village, people are friendly and the staff in the visitor information centre (right behind the house) are so happy to help. We arrived to a selection of eggs and Welsh cakes (which we fell in love with). There was enough coffee pods for one morning, And also instant coffee and tea. The beds are comfy and the house is super clean. Plenty of parking right outside the house!

Janet - July 2017:

Fantastic cottage. Welcomed with a gift of milk, fresh eggs and Welsh cakes, what a lovely surprise! Beautifully decorated interior, lovely soft muted shades in every room. Comfy furniture, and a woodburner in the lounge, complete with a basket of logs! What more can you ask for? But there is more.... 3 bedrooms, all simply furnished with comfy beds and pristine white bedding. Large bathroom with shower over the bath, and fluffy white towels to wrap yourself in. Kitchen opens onto a lovely courtyard, with picnic table and umbrella, fully enclosed, so great for the dogs, no worries about them escaping. Beautiful large dining room with pine table and chairs, slate floor and gorgeous rug.

Went to the Visitor Centre just around the corner for a light lunch, which is well worth a visit.

Great communication from Sophie and brilliant instructions for everything we needed to know about the cottage.

Used taxi to go the 3 miles into Llandovery for a fantastic evening meal at The Bear, a really homely, quirky restaurant, which was brilliant value for money.

All in all, a wonderful holiday cottage which is well worth a visit. Thanks for sharing it with us! Xx

Xavier - July 2017:

Super cozy place! The house design was beautiful and we enjoyed it a lot during the two days we spent there.

Kimberley - July 2017:

Absolutely lovely house in a tranquil and beautiful location. Loved the little courtyard garden!

Margaux - July 2017:

Incredibly charming house in Myddfai! We used this as a "home base" as we toured various parts of Wales and it was perfect. There are tons of walks near the house and many within a twenty minutes drive. (Our favorite was the hike up to the "Lady of the Lake" glacial lake! Perfect for photography, walking, and sheep-sightings). I highly recommend this place and Sophie-- she was quick to respond with suggestions about where to go and answered all of our questions. The house is also very comfortable and beautiful (most comfortable beds ever!) and includes a kitchen area you can use and even an outdoor patio in the garden. Would definitely return for a longer trip (ideal place for a week + type of rental).

Ash - June 2017:

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and we really appreciate the little touches. Having a stair gate and extra kids bits made for a much more enjoyable stay, the house was extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable with good quality bedding and comfy mattresses! Communication was great and we had a truly lovely stay, in fact we were very sad to leave! The location could not have been better for the wedding we attended at the local community hall and all in a stunning setting. Highly recommend!  Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and we really appreciate the little touches.

Jamie - June 2017:

The house was well equipped and immaculately presented the was no negatives only positives to our break away.

Jon - June 2017:

What a lovely home from home!  Nice enclosed patio for dogs and children, nice walk for the furry just up the road at Coed Letter (Be aware of the sheep). Nice quiet friendly village and not far from the beautiful Brecons. Beds and bed linen were excellent.  Well worth staying here for walking holidays. It was hard to drag ourselves home.

Alexander - June 2017:

The house is really nice and comfortable and ideal to start your exploration of Brecon Beacons.

Debbie - June 2017:

The cottage has very high standards with everything you could need for your stay. There was milk, eggs and Welsh cakes provided for us. The cottage is clean and well set out. The beds are so comfortable and the bathroom is fabulous. We were able to cook our own food and all equipment was supplied. Will definitely book again and would highly recommend others to book as Sophie is friendly and helpful. Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage.  OMG the cottage is amazing we were so sorry to leave. It was way above our expectations. Hope to visit again.

Emma - June 2017:

This is a beautiful, spacious house. We had four people but it would be equally comfortable with six. Sophie left fantastic instructions for the house, including a list of things to do and see while in the area. We went to see red kites being fed - can't recommend that enough, it was the highlight of our trip. The village of Myddfai is very small, but has a neat visitors center/ cafe/ gift shop which is worth a visit. Llandovery is a ten minute drive away and has some lovely pubs as well as a co-op for groceries.

Tracy - May 2017:

The moment we stepped through the doors of this property we felt at home. It was delightful, warm and comfortable. We looked forward to returning to it each day of our stay! Relaxing in front of the wood burner every evening! The beds were extremely comfortable with clean, fresh and soft bedding. The kitchen was very well equipped. It was a shame the weather wasn't kind enough for us to enjoy the quaint courtyard garden. Throughout the house the standard of decoration was excellent. The quiet and still village that surrounded the house was idyllic, with only a church and a community hall, which was the hub of the village. The staff there were very welcoming, serving light lunches, tea and coffee. There was a small gift shop too! The property was a perfect location for us to visit our relatives who live in the neighbouring village of Llandovery. The owners of the property were very attentive, receiving a telephone call a week before to confirm our arrival arrangements. We very much look forward to returning to Llangoedmor House.

Anne and Rob - April 2017:

It has been a pleasure to be your first guests. We have spent a lovely week in Llangoedmor House with a busy weekend with a family wedding in Myddfai church then a relaxing few days exploring. If you travel as far as Glasbury, River Café is a great place to eat alongside the River Wye and a stroll along the canal in Brecon is a good, peaceful walk.
