Probably the best cottage we have stayed in - beautifully finished to a very high standard. Marjorie and Evan have put a lot of thought into the design and we lacked for nothing. A perfect location for walking.......

Hannah and Tony, London

We have stayed in a beautiful part of the country in the most excellent accommodation and our hosts, Marjorie and Evan, made us most welcome. We intend to return.

Dorothy, Frank and Keith, Southend-on-Sea

The return visit for us-in fact No. 6-we just love it here. Brecon Cathedral was wonderful on Remembrance Sunday. And also very good concert in Sennybridge. Stable Cottage five star is usual, Marjorie and Evan always the kindest of folk. We hope to return next year.

Thank you for the wonderful stay at the cottage. We loved the extra touches-cakes etc.. The cottage was by far more than we expected. The Jacuzzi was perfect for returning from long days out! We will be recommending and will return next year!

Thank you, Marjorie and Evan, for the wonderful holiday accommodation provided by the Coach House. My Daughter chose the house for its charm, location and cleanliness. She wanted the best for her "Wedding home" and she had it here! She had many photographs taken (indoors unfortunately as the weather was not so good) and we had a party fun time getting ready for the wedding. After the wedding, my family enjoyed our restful time recovering and walking in the hills. Thank you.

R & S July 2012

What a lovely cottage-it certainly has the X factor. The attention to detail, decorations and comfort are excellent. There aren't many places where you can sit outside and hear nothing but the birds twittering and the occasional sheep baa-ing. We had a lovely time and the Jacuzzi bath was particularly good after a mountain bike ride. We still have plenty of places to visit if we come this way again.
