It was lovely to receive such a warm welcome from Rachael and Paul on our arrival on Saturday. The house was just fabulous - spacious, immaculately presented, well equipped with 4 bedrooms (one on-suite and a large family bathroom) and everything you could want for a very comfortable stay. Shame we were only staying overnight! Would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday home to anyone. Thanks Rachael & Paul!

“So good we went back and stayed again!”
Reviewed 5 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The best review is that having stayed with friends in September when my girlfriend and I were in the area with other friends the cottage was the first place to check availability. Luckily it was and we received the same warm welcome and beautiful cottage as last time. It will be a place we stay many more times I am sure when in the Brecon area. Great value and location

“Well-appointed house in excellent situation.”
Reviewed 30 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Three generations gathered at Cross House to celebrate a family milestone. The house is very comfortable and well-appointed and Rachael and her husband could not have been more helpful or friendly, especially as we had a five-month old baby in the party. The situation is terrific for visiting Hay-on-Wye and Brecon and for riverside walks. The surrounding countryside is magnificent. The only reason for 4 dot rating rather than 5 is that there is no garden for sitting out or for children to play, which didn't really bother us but might be a downside for others. This is in part mitigated by the fact that there is plenty of car-parking space. Definitely worth a return visit.

“Lovely house in brilliant location”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I have just had a wonderful weekend away with friends staying in this very comfortable and well equipped house. We arrived to find bread, milk, butter, tea/coffee etc all provided and Rachel, the owner, on hand to give personal recommendations for places to walk, visit and eat. The house has been lovingly restored and was very clean and comfortable. Although it has two reception rooms we in fact spent our evenings sat around the farmhouse style kitchen table and with the good weather we made use of the outside seating area which was a sun trap. There was plenty of off road parking and it was a short walk across the road to a lovely cafe and The Griifin pub, both of which were very good.. Also recommend Wye Valley Canoes if you fancy a paddle up the river.

“Amazing place, had a relaxing stay, highly recommended”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed in Cross House during the Easter break for 3 nights with friends. Initially booked for 8 people, however 2 more friends decided to join later. Called Rachel to ask if Cross House could accommodate 10 people, and she delightfully confirmed it would be fine. The farmhouse is exactly as detailed in the description and perfect place for long weekend gateway. Rachel is extremely helpful and well stocked the kitchen with milk, bread, cake, tea, coffee before our arrival. We received a warm welcome from Rachel and her family upon our arrival. There was enough off road parking space for 3 cars we drove. The Brecon national park is only few mins drive from Cross House. There are cafe and pub within walking distance from the farmhouse. Rachel's expert local knowledge was very much handy and we had a good lunch at Tripple n tiffin.
If you are looking for a relaxing break in Brecon, I would highly recommend Cross House and can't wait to go back myself. Thank you Rachel!
