The views of Hay Bluff and the Black mountains from this rural converted farm house are lovely. There was lots of open countryside nearby and the towns of Hay on Wye and Brecon provided plenty of amenities - including a brewery. Would definitely recommend for families with children and/or dogs. The owners are very friendly and had a wealth of local knowledge.
Just returned from a 3 night stay in Warren cottage with my wife and 2 kids (and our dog!). What a fantastic place this was to stay. We were looking for a break that got us away from everything and Bruanant Farm cottages certainly gave us that. Amazing views and wonderful cottage which had everything we needed. Spotlessly clean and with little touches which made us feel completely at home. The beds were so comfortable it was hard to get up!
Pete and Beth couldn't have been more helpful. Not intrusive but always available and able to give us advice on some nice walks and places to visit and they even sorted out great weather! We walked to to the local pub one evening and had lovely meal and were able to bring the dog in with us.
Couldn't fault anything.
Superb vantage point on side of Wye Valley looking across to Black Mountains ridge line (photos don't quite do justice). x3 cottages very well equipped for self-catering and abundance of great country pubs (x1 a meadow away) nearby. Can walk into Hay easily enough. Nearby Begwyns a lovely moor hilltop walk area and Black Mountains a real outdoor playground. Hosts Beth and Pete extremely friendly and helpful re local knowledge and tips. Perfect for all ages - newborns and up with plenty of safe areas on site for kiddies to play / see what a sheep looks like etc
We enjoyed a lovely week at Orchard Cottage. The view from the cottage is stunning.Beth and David were friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the walk across fields to the local pub, The Baskerville Arms. Their Sunday lunch was good value for money. The cottage is situated within easy reach of Hay and other amenities. Beth and Peter were able to help us with planning jogging and walking routes from the cottage. For any Park Runners the nearest run is at Hereford. As ever, a friendly crowd at this run. Altogether, a brilliant week and we plan to return..
We have just returned to London after a delightful week in Brunant Farm and can’t stop talking about our time away. My family (husband plus two girls under 10) and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Warren cottage. It was just what we were looking for to get away from unrelenting London.
The cottage is cosy and homely with all modern conveniences, including a choice of kids DVDs and a stocked kitchen. The setting is spectacular – wonderful views of the hills through the day and almost unreal starry skies at night. The playroom barn was a big hit with the girls who spent a fair amount of time entertaining themselves there. There’s no wifi at the property but mobile coverage is strong.
The property is ideally situated for the many long walks we did and within easy driving distance to Hay, Brecon and Abergavenny. Stumbling across the brooding ruins of Llanthony Priory was a real highlight – definitely worth a visit. Big Pit is highly recommended and there’s a heritage steam train there too.
Special mention as to how welcoming Beth and Peter were, including producing chocolate bunnies when they saw the children and taking the trouble to courier some personal effects left behind.
We would certainly recommend this property to friends and family and hope we get the chance to come back soon.
