About Roger and Katie Smith

We live in Llanwrtyd Wells, running a bed and breakfast with our young family.

Roger and Katie Smith purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Roger and Katie Smith chose Llanwrtyd Wells

This area of the Cambrian Mountains is little known to the masses. The scenery is stunning, the crowds are non exisitant, and there plenty of activities and adventures to have in the area from wild water swimming in the rivers,Walking , Mountain Biking, Horse Riding, going down a Gold mine or climbing up the towers in spectacular Castles. Llanwrtyd Wells (pronounced clan-or-tid) offers three award winning restaurants, 3 pubs and micro brewery and a couple of well stocked convenience stores. The town also hosts the International Bog snorkelling Championships, Man V Horse race and many more original events, why not give them a go.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is located 1.5 miles from Llanwrtyd Wells. Set back from the lane, it has off road car parking a small dog proof garden and a bike shed. Cook on an oil Rayburn range, for those that are worried about this there is a recipe book available and we can give you a few tips. We've had guests go home and buy one they have loved cooking on it so much! Relax by the wood burning stove, all wood, coal, kindling are included in the rental.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bronfelin Holiday Cottage - I was pleasantly surprise that the cottage was even better than advertised. We had a wonderful holiday with my teenage/adult daughters & husband. The cottage was very cosy & was equipped with all we needed for a perfect retreat. the breath-taking views from the cottage windows were a wonderful welcome greeting ever morning. There is so much to do and see, 6 days was not enough, although I did get some time to paint and cook on the lovely Rayburn cooker.

'Even before we stayed at Bronfelin Roger and Katie were wonderfully warm and helpful, understanding perfectly what it is like to travel with a baby and accommodating everything we needed (and some things we forgot we needed!).' Sept '13

'The cottage is fantastic. Clean and modern decoration, very comfortable and furnished with everything you could really need. We stayed in winter, so relaxing in front of the wood burning stove with a glass of wine was th perfect way to spend an evening.' 12 Jan 2010

Cosy cottage in mid Wales, with everything needed for a great family stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a mid-winter get away for a week and had a lovely time in Bronfelin. It's just a great place for a family (up to 3 kids) to cosy up by the fire and get out into the hills. It has the winning mix of being nicely done out, but robust enough to withstand grubby little hands without having to worry too much. The location worked really well - no phone reception; hills; shops selling essentials but no crowds; gorgeous!

Cosy, clean, heartwarming cottage with incredible views.

  • 5 of 5

As a family of five - including teenagers - the cottage appealed to everyone. Views from the cottage windows are spectacular - perfect with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Beautiful walks from the door and if you fancy wild swimming this is your location. The owners are helpful, willing and knowledgeable about the area.

Although I grew up in the Elan Valley I did not know the cottage and what an amazing place to go and stay! Everything provided for a young family and a blissful break. If you want time out away from the rat race then look no further. The cottage was high spec, the owners friendly and helpful and we can not wait to go back. It was always warm in the cottage and if you are not used to rural living I would just advise preparing what your meals are going to be in advance but negatives at all.
