Stayed over Easter, 18 of us in total and hired out all of the cottages (6 in total). We go away every Easter as a big group and this place is one of the best places we have hired out!
Me and my husband were the first to arrive therefore we were greeted by the owner. Unfortunately I didn't catch her name but she was so friendly and welcoming. She showed us round all the cottages and encouraged us to knock on her house if we needed anything. She was lovely.
All the cottages and rooms were incredibly clean! Considering how big it all was I was surprised at how clean and spotless everything was. Lots of cute little touches, for example each cottage had fresh flowers, a nice little welcoming note and chocolates. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need and all other rooms had everything you needed.
Pool area was also great, clean and the changing facilities were a lot better than most local swimming pool facilities.
Had no children with us on the visit but noticed lots of games, toys and other bits to keep children entertained.
The views are also incredible! And all the outside area is once again clean, tidy and welcoming.
I would seriously recommend the cottages and it was one of the nicest places I have stayed in.

“Such an A Mazing place!!! ”

We just came back from a weekend here & rented out all of the cottages for an extended family break 12 of us.

We visit Brecon regularly as we have family living close by, & as our family increases in number we have been looking for better options to stay close by.
We have 2 teens & a 9yr old

Vale Holidays is perfect, situated in stunning views & run by lovely people. Accomodation is so well finished.
Every detail was thought about & the kitchen facilities were home from home. & inc dishwasher.
Every bedroom has luxury duvets & comfy beds & lovely little nooks & crannys to explore.

the cherry on the cake is a private swimming pool for all to enjoy with washroom & washing facilities

The owners have really thought of everything!! and even brought feshly hatched chicks for the kids to see, the farm is fully functional but not part of the cottages so this was a great treat for my kids to see.

be warned thou the internet & phone coverage are neither very good in this location so its a proper take a break from everything place.

We will defo go back!!

We stayed at The Vale over a long weekend in June and had a wonderful time. The accomodation is incredibly comfortable and the location beautiful. The owners were incredibly helpful and couldn't have done anything more for us. A wonderful weekend for all of the family, adults and small children alike.

Don't know where to start... Best way to put it is "you won't be disappointed"!
Everything was fab fab fab!
All you need is your own personal items, outdoor games and food....
22 of our family members went to the vale and it has to be the best holiday I have been on to date and I have been to a fair few places and countries. ☺️☺️☺️. Keep up the good work... Will defo go again.
Thanks for catering for our every whim
