Roverside Barn was amazing, very spacious even with 6 adults sharing, we all had an amazing time. The games room was a great asset. Location was perfect for roaming around the Beacons.

The cottage was in a lovely countryside setting. The cottage was furnished to a very high standard, and in a central location to many attractions and places to visit. The cottage was very family friendly with a games room and lots of board games to keep them entertained.

Liked the space in the cottage and the surroundings - there was plenty of outside space and a ride on tractor for the grandson. Enjoyed being able to walk to the river. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners. There were excellent parking facilities and it was well equipped inside. It was very quiet, wonderful, in fact!

A spacious and quiet place, which had been decorated appropriately for Christmas, and was immediately welcoming. The owner was also very helpful. A walk across the frosty fields to the River Usk on Christmas morning gave us a good appetite!

There was a warm welcome with Welsh cake And fresh scenting flowers We loved the open plan kitchen/living room with the well equipped kitchen. Our boys loved to play with the Knex And the air hockey table in the play room. The area has lots to offer for families from nice days out in the Brecon Beacons national park (we also loved the short walk to the waterfall from the parking place along the Roda, just past the Tallybont reservoir, a visit to Cardiff tubing in festival parc, visit to the national showcaves and big pit.

Lovely property to base our holiday from. Beautifully presented, excellent facilities, including games, books and air hockey for the kids. The little extras like the flowers and cake were perfect touches from great hosts.

The property was fresh, clean and very well presented! The fresh lilies, the pint of milk and the chocolate fudge cake we found upon our arrival were a lovely, thoughtful touch. The hosts were friendly and informative, the location was very picturesque and near idyllic! With local amenities just a short walk away, lots of places to explore and other interesting things to do, it really is an ideal location for a holiday.

A very peaceful location and yet easy access from nearby main routes. The hosts were always available with suggestions and advice but never in an intrusive way. The barn is very comfortably furnished with quality bedding and towels, we were very comfortable.

We loved; the extensive grounds (and pond) for the children to explore, the welcoming and helpful owners and the lovely big open plan living area. We loved; the beautiful countryside nearby, the easy access to local facilities, the views from the windows and the quality of the furniture, bedding and kitchenware etc.

This was an excellently located cottage in pristine condition and all amenities were in perfect condition. The hosts were very friendly and made us feel totally at ease. The 90 acres of ground along with the stream and tree swing was an added bonus to what can only be described as perfect.

The site is beautiful, quiet and very secure, and extremely friendly and helpful owners. We were made to feel so welcome. The accommodation was immaculate and really well set out with an excellent finish and nice furniture and decor throughout. There was plenty of parking available and some really thoughtful little touches were in place by the owners. All that could be heard was the birds singing and the river water running close by - a perfect relaxing space for everyone.

We have been told by the owners that they would be around to greet us and that the barn would be open, but when we arrived at the property in the dark and cold aroudn 5 pm no one was around, the doors were locked and no one could be reached on any of the phone numbers we had. We had repeadetly tried to access the property and tried to reach the owners and finally gave up and left at around 9 pm. I find it horrifiying that anyone would leave a young family in the cold and dark for so long. We finally received a text with the key location at 0.40 am. I have no idea what the owners have been thinking that we would still hang around this late. For a first trip with our 4 month old, it could not have been a more horrible experience. Good that she won't be able to remember!

This is a fantastic open-plan cottage that has lovely furnishings. The kitchen is very well equipped and the owner starts you off with a pint of milk, tea, coffee sugar and a cake. There are also fresh flowers in the room. The three bedrooms, 2 doubles and a twin room upstairs, offer very comfortable beds and the location is great for getting around to enjoy the sites in South Wales. A car is necessary but the parking is free and secure. Very quiet, beautifully furnished and excellent service from the owner, who is on hand if you need them but are also happy to leave you alone to enjoy your break. Would definitely recommend and will come back. The WiFi is also very good.

We couldn't have asked for more. The cottage was beautiful and the location was perfect for exploring all the Brecon Beacons had to offer! We'll definitely be recommending Riverside Barn to friends and we'll more than likely be back to visit again in the future. The owners were very helpful and friendly.
