This is a truly lovely part of the world that I hadn’t discovered at all. Top notch accommodation, with a great bathroom.

Such a warm and friendly welcome from David and Helen. So helpful throughout the whole of our stay. Once inside the apartment the one word that came out of mine and my husband’s lips was STUNNING! ! David and Helen provided the most luxurious accommodation for their guests. All very modern, exceptionally clean. My husband, our son and myself had the most peaceful nights sleep. Very comfortable. The apartment is ideally located to walk or ride out to the beautiful countryside surrounding Ystradgynlais. Very safe area outside of apartment. We loved it!! Parks near by..our 8 yr old was and riding happily for ages.

Absolutely amazing! Apartment is incredible, tastefully decorated, spotless, spacious but cosy at the same time. Location is great as well, very close to centre of town where you can find local shops and places to eat. The most amazing views on the doorstep! Short drive from mountains – highlight of our stay. But also not far from the beach. Helen and David were amazing host providing us with useful information of where to go, very welcoming people. Also recommend checking out gallery and workshop – David kindly showed us around. Will be definitely coming back, can’t recommend enough!

A wonderful place to stay. Lovely hosts who were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The apartment is lovely. Although it is just as it appears in the pictures, actually staying there is even nicer than expected. The bath was amazing as was the bed and bedding. Location meant we could explore brecon beacons and the nearby waterfalls. Highly recommended.

The perfect base for exploring the national park. The pictures do not do justice to how lovely this apartment is, very spacious & everything you need for a very relaxing get away. David the host gave us great tips on where to eat & places to go! Cannot fault.

We have had an excellent experience with David and Helen. The apartment is extremely clean, has pleasingly contemporary decor and all facilities as described. A special shout out to the walk-in shower and the underfloor heating! We had complete privacy with our own private access and key to the place. David and Helen also served as our guides, giving us tips to visit in the Brecon Beacons and in Swansea. I highly recommended the apartment to visitors.

The place is amazing, located at the foot of the brecon beacons perfect for walking and exploring the area. The house itself is immaculate, very clean and modern but with a lot of charm. David is helpful and informative of the surrounding area. All round a great place to go.

What a lovely, extremely well furnished property located in a lovely quiet little village a stones throw from the Brecon Beacons. Would definitely recommend this as a stay for others, David was most helpful and informative. Thank you for having us! Elliot & Alex.

We had the most wonderful stay at David & Helen’s apartment, we were very sad to leave! The apartment itself is beautiful – very modern and spacious (the photo’s don’t do it justice!) – and it is perfectly located, both within walking distance to shops and a great base to explore the Brecon Beacons from. David & Helen were fantastic hosts and always on hand if we needed – we will definitely be back and recommending to family and friends! Many thanks again, Sophie & Tom

The accommodation was outstanding. Very spacious and clean. Our hosts helped out with everything we needed and gave us many ideas on what to do and where to go. The accommodation had very comfortable beds and a fantastic bathroom. It is in a great location to some beautiful walks and tourist attractions too. Will be back very soon.

Our stay at David and Helen’s beautiful apartment was fantastic. They made us feel so welcome when we arrived even though it was late at night!! Our stay fell over Christmas and David and Helen had organised a small Christmas tree to be set up in the apartment which made our stay even more special. The apartment is very modern and very well equipped which was great! The location of the apartment is fantastic a 5 minute drive to some beautiful waterfalls in the nature reserve!! Thank you again for a wonderful stay I would definitely recommend this apartments to others!!

Thank you again David for a fantastic holiday!! We really enjoyed ourselves!!!

We had a great stay at David and Helen’s place – we chose the apartment for its location, and the cleanliness and decor were just an added bonus. Highly recommended for those who want to explore the Brecon Beacons or the coastal path – such a beautiful part of the world. David and Helen were both very helpful throughout our stay, thank you for having us!

The apartment exceeded all expectations, David couldn’t have been more helpful from the booking stage to our leaving and the activities we picked just all contributed to a fabulous three night stay. We visited the Mumbles and walked the 12 mile coastal route taking in the beautiful bays, Bracelet, Langland, Caswell in the morning and onto the Three cliffs in the afternoon. The day was topped off with a suburb meal at the Chameleon, (tapas superb) and with a tip off from David during the day, a toe tapping folk group provided the entertainment. Next we planned the Pen y Fan pilgrimage but it was too foggy so after coffee in Brecon we zipped back to the Ystradfellte , Four Waterfalls Walk, great for getting the heart rate up, lovely scenery. Would recommend proper boots and kit as we saw plenty of others struggling underfoot with the slippery conditions steep climbs, this 6 mile walk (according to a fit bit!) was topped off with with well needed pint at the New Inn and on the final day with the mist/fog clearing we are walking up Pan Y Fan before unfortunately heading home. We would recommend David and this Apartment, but not too much to ensure availability for a return visit!

Such a beautiful apartment; spacious, comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen facilities are great, it’s always nice to have the option to eat in. David was extremely welcoming and very helpful. He suggested lots of places to eat and things to do in the local area. We would not hesitate in recommending the apartment to our friends. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the near future.

It was very easy to find the property and David gave use a very friendly welcome when we arrived. The apartment was lovely and much more spacious than we had gathered from the photos. It was great to have the option of eating in, with all the utensils and kitchen space provided, or eating out at the Chameleon cafe down the road. The local pub also does a lovely pint! The bath was a Godsend! Especially after a 5 hour hike in the Brecons, getting rained on in the last hour. It was lovely to come back to a warm apartment and hot bubble bath. David left us lots of helpful tips and recommendations which was great. The bed was soft and comfortable, the apartment clean and area very peaceful and calming. I wish we had been able to stay longer, but we hope to return! Thank you David and Helen.

This Place is immaculate, and the hosts are friendly and welcoming. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer experience, the house is spacious and comfortable, and the under floor heating was so luxurious! David regularly texted us events that were happening in Ystradgynlais, the cafe/pub 2 mins down the road was fantastic. What a lovely stay.

Aug 2016

We had a fantastic time staying at David’s apartment. The apartment was so modern, fresh and clean with everything you could need and a lovely luxury bathroom! David was an excellent host, gave us all the information we needed and we knew he was available should we have had any further questions during our stay. Wouldn’t hesitate recommending this place and returning ourselves in the future. Thanks David!

Well presented, clean and spacious accommodation. Host was prompt to respond to any queries we had. Looked forward to coming back each day to our accommodation at the end if a long day. Quiet neighbourhood, good access to nearby tourist attractions. Access to local supermarket. Good kitchen facilities. Enjoyed our stay very much.
