We are a family with two small children who live in Oxfordshire. We have been coming to the Beacons for many years, and the kids love the mix of activities on offer, whether it's walking in the hills, playing in mountain streams, or visiting the many attractions of the National Park.

I would definitely recommend a stay at this cottage. Very well presented, well situated for hiking straight out of your front door. Even though you’re sharing the farm with a few other properties it is extremely quiet and very private. Only one slight negative in that the drive on the country lane to the property is a bit stony and uneven. I imagine it would be a little tricky in poorer weather conditions. Though this is clearly stated in the property description. On the whole a very relaxing stay and I would book again.
We enjoyed our stay at Holly Tree Cottage so much. The cottage was almost like a hotel, good beds, soft towels, kitchen with extensive appliances. Just perfect. We would really advise staying here.

Very comfortable, in a wonderful setting
We had a lovely stay. Everything was well appointed and the area itself is amazingly beautiful. Very good communication with the owner.
Thank you very much for your kind review. I'm really glad that you enjoyed your stay, and hope that you were successful in finding out more about Leslie Norris. Would love to welcome you back one day!
lovely cottage in a great location
Holly cottage is a great find. We loved the wood burning stove and the cottage was very cosy. It was clean, comfortable and very well equipped and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. We felt at home.The setting is also great, having easy to access to lovely countryside, the canal, and a pub. All communication with Jonathan was easy. We had a lovely time. Thank you.
We're delighted that you felt at home at Holly Tree - that is very much our intention! We'd love to welcome you back one day!
Beautiful cottage, extremely well equipped and comfortable
Would highly recommend - everything from beds to kitchen equipment was fantastic. Amazing location for a break in a beautiful cottage. Perfect for walking or exploring and a delight to return to at the end of the day, especially to a roaring log fire!
Hi Heather, thank you so much for your kind review, and your lovely notes in the guest book. We're really glad you and the family had such a good weekend, and would love to welcome you to Holly Tree again in the future!
Amazing location and cottage - home away from home
We've been coming to Wales nearly every year with the kids since they were born and this is by far our most favourite cottage. If you like walking, you can't beat this location. My husband enjoyed doing his morning runs following the walking path that literally goes past the front door and takes you all the way to Fan Y big - if you want! The kids (aged 7 and 4) really enjoyed exploring forests, streams, and waterfalls and even managed a few hills. The cottage is not only well equipped but has lots of 'home' touches like hot water bottles, a washer dryer (perfect for sorting out muddy kids clothes) and Netflix (a big relief for keeping the kids amused in the evenings). The nearby town of Brecon has everything you need if you fancy a little shop - and yes we got dragged into a toy shop but we also bought farm eggs and welsh lamb. You get it - we loved it. And, just to add, we personally found no issue with the car park, which literrelly was just a few footsteps away from the cottage itself. Have I mentioned the amazing views from the master bedroom? I think this was my highlight - waking up each morning to a breathtaking view of sunrise of brecons from the comfort of my bed on full view through the amazing windows was breathtaking and truly wonderful . I would highly reccomend this cottage to friends and family without hesitation. And, we really hope to come back very soon! Thank you - it was one of our best trips and we've come home with lots of love for the Brecons and their unique spledour.
Monika - thank you for the lovely review. It makes us very happy when guests appreciate all the things that we enjoy so much about the house!
And thanks to your husband for setting me a great target for the Fan-Y-Big run... got a few more weeks before February half term to get in shape...
I hope very much that we are able to welcome you back to Holly Tree, perhaps when the days are a bit longer.
Holly Tree Cottage is accessed along an un-made up farm track. This is perfectly accessible for a normal family car, but you may not want to bring a low-slung sports car.
Pets are not allowed, as there are free ranging chickens, and sheep often pass the front door.
Holly Tree is a non-smoking property.
