Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I was born, grew up and worked in Builth Wells until I married. Work commitments meant that I moved with my husband and 3 boys to the Leominster area. I manage and have successfully run this holiday cottage for the last 20 years and in that time have met many satisfied visitors, the visitors book confirms this. Over the past 9 months I have been engaged in updating and extending this cottage for future lettings.

Why the Owner Chose Brecon:
I fell in love with the location of this cottage as it was quiet private and close to Builth being my home area. It also meant that this was a project for my 3 boys in their professional fields to work on with me to update in 1995 and again this past year. In consideration of all the work done I consider this to be a well worth project.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is a converted barn having stone and oak beam features, has excellent expansive views from kitchen, lounge, dining room and bedroom windows.
