Cottage with 5 bedrooms, 2 en-suite, to sleep 9/10
About Jayne Symons
We are a family of four grown up children, our parents bought the property and we now share it between us. As children we spent many summer holidays playing in the stream just below the cottage and enjoyed cycling in the forest. Now we let our children play in the stream when the weather is suitable obviously watching them ! There are lots of walks to be discovered using the trails in the woods or up on the Brecon Beacons.
Jayne Symons purchased this Cottage in 1960
Why Jayne Symons chose Llandovery
The lay out of the property is very social with the kitchen dinning room and the fact that there is a soft sofa in the kitchen means people can easily chat to the cooks whilst relaxing with a glass of wine. Meanwhile in the lounge you can get away from everyone if you want to read a book by the wood burner.
What makes this Cottage unique
As the house has always been used for holidays rather than a house for living in full time, and therefore its been set up to cater for groups of people or equally just 2 people can feel at home.

Dogs and baby
Great property in a fantastic location,easy to find with lots to do locally.
Wonderful cottage and location couldn’t fault it
Had a lovely long weekend with all the family, we all were impressed with the standard of accommodation and it’s facilities. The location was perfect for us nicely isolated from other properties yet close enough to Llandovery to pop into for a meal or shopping. Would recommend this cottage to anyone. Hopefully we will return one day
Lovely property great setting
The house was easy to find and comfortably accommodated 4 adults 6 teenagers
and two dogs.
Great being able to walk straight out of the house and into the forest or taking a car to explore the magnificent Welsh countryside.
Nice touches such as a bottle of prosecco and fuel for the fire on arrival were appreciated.
The house is very well equipped providing you can live without tv phone signal and fast wifi.
Despite some initial complaints we actually found it enhanced the holiday as more time was spent together playing games or watching films or just relaxing with a book and glass of wine.
In summary would recommend for any largish family group which enjoys outdoors activities and a little light rain.

Large, modern, comfortable cottage on the edge of the forest.
Just spent a lovely week here with family. A great fit for all ages; ours ranged from 5 to 78 with a few inbetween, not forgetting our dog. Loads of space, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, all the kitchen stuff you could wish for.
Set in beautiful surroundings, on the edge of the forest with its own stream, and a field which was great for walking the dog and kids! The walks into the forest are lovely (and good enough paths for some lovely runs). Worth noting that younger children need an adult with them in all the outdoor space as the stream or open forest surrounds the property. Lots of local wildlife; birds, bats, and of course the famous peacock.
Located in an area near loads of things to do, the national showcase caves are definitely a good day out if you have young or older children, the goldmine also a good trip, obviously the Brecon Beacons including Pen-y-Fan, and it's about 50 minutes from the beach.
It's only a 5 minute drive into Llandovery with a good Co-op, a great bakery, a few little gift shops and a great cafe/restaurant at The Bear.
We are on the door step of Crychan forest and so it is possible to walk straight to the forest for many interesting and attractive walks. This forest also has mountain biking and horse riding routes marked up. It is also a good place for bird watching. If you walk opposite the cottage and up the footpaths you reach the Brecon Beacons National Park a 2 hour hike will get you to the reservoir .
