Very enjoyable stay. Great location for walks and to discover the area. Good chats whilst having a delicious breakfast. Alex recommended going to 'big pit' a heritage coal mine site. It was an amazing experience, which our 12 year old daughter loved.

Lovely location for a short get-away in the Black Mountains. I visited with my parents, who enjoyed the chance to see something different, as well as an excellent meal at a local pub recommended by our hosts.

Rob and Alex were very welcoming and attentive hosts, happy to offer suggestions for walks and pub trips in the area. The annex as our own space was lovely and rustic which offered the facilities we needed (kettle with selection of teas and coffee, bath with selection of toiletries). The amazing views of the Welsh valleys were most certainly the highlight.

My stay at this B&B was amazing. Rob & Alex are excellent hosts and they have an absolutely lovely dog :) The annex was very clean and it has a very nice intererior. Outside of the annex is a private sitting area with a absolutely amazing view on the hills. The breakfasts that were served in the mornings by Alex were great as well. Several good restaurants can be found in the area within 10 minutes of this B&B. I'd certainly recommend considering this B&B; it's totally worth the money.

We really had an amazing time at Alex and Rob's place in Wales. The scenery and location are unbelievably gorgeous. Alex helped us arrange reservations for dinner at an authentic local pub which we loved. We took an early morning walk on the local roads and enjoyed the incredible views. This is the first time we have stayed in an Airbnb with shared a common spaces and it worked out fine. The private annex has two bedrooms and a bath all decorated really tastefully and simply. I especially liked the framed art. Mattress, bedding and sheets were extremely comfortable, the best in all of our trip which included five other Airbnbs. Alex made us a delicious breakfast in the kitchen of the main house with fresh eggs, sausages, bacon, yogurt, muesli, fresh bread, etc. etc. etc. It was enough food to last us the whole day. In short, we loved it and if you're on the fence definitely give it a try!
