The Brecon Suite

Large Dog Friendly Apartment with PRIVATE Hot Tub

Read More

The Brecon Suite is a large, dog friendly apartment with PRIVATE hot tub (PRIVATE = NOT SHARED, FOR YOUR USE ONLY) within 'Woodlands', a substantial 19th Century Vicarage.

Offering adult only, self catering accommodation, Woodlands occupies an elevated position in the Aeron Valley, with stunning views of surrounding fields and woodland.

We run Alpaca Experiences on site - please contact us for more information on the packages available and how to book.

The Brecon Suite has a large lounge, double bedroom, kitchen/diner and bathroom and is furnished to a very high standard with everything you need for your stay. On the ground floor of the property is a large laundry room offering washing machine and ironing facilities, as well as a boot room for storing outdoor/walking gear and the library, with a large selection of books and dvds.

Included in the price:




Book and DVD Library

Welcome Pack for you which includes homemade bread, milk, orange juice, freshly laid duck and chicken eggs, cereals, tea, sugar and coffee (instant and cafetiere)

Welcome Pack for your pet which includes a water bowl, luxurious bed, treats and toy

For a little bit extra:

Paw Holding Service if you want to go out without your dog/s (details in information pack on arrival or contact us in advance)

Outside, the upper garden has a PRIVATE (for your use only) hot tub which is enclosed and gated. There is also a picnic table with parasol, gas bbq, coffee table, armchairs and sun loungers and enjoys uninterrupted views up and down the valley.

The lower garden is fully enclosed (fenced and gated), providing a safe place for your dogs to play off the lead. In the lower garden you will find a picnic table with parasol, coffee table, bench, armchairs and sun loungers. There is also a paddling pool for your dog as well as a large comfy dog bed with sail shade, for those hot, sunny days. Relax and enjoy the beautiful views up and down the valley, whilst listening to the birds singing and watching the Red Kites circling overhead.

With walks from the doorstep, as well as (year round, dog friendly) beaches, forests and the Cambrian Mountains just a short drive away, Woodlands is the perfect 'get away from it all' location. Peaceful and secluded with an abundance of wildlife, particularly birds, Woodlands is a little slice of paradise here in West Wales. And if you've never explored this area before, you'll be staggered by the beauty and diverse scenery at every turn.

We love animals here at Woodlands - we automatically accept 3 well behaved dogs and will consider more, depending on size and breed. We also welcome cats and what's more, your furry friends stay with us completely free of charge, regardless of the length of your stay.

We have walking right from the doorstep, taking you across the river and up into the woodland on the other side of the valley.

Situated in an ideal position for sight-seeing, Woodlands is a 20 minute drive to the nearest (year round dog friendly) beach in one direction, and 15 minutes into the Cambrian Mountains in the other. This makes Woodlands the ideal location for walking, cycling and climbing enthusiasts. There is so much to do in the local area, you will never be short of places to go or things to see.

Perfect...just perfect ?

Excellent property, superb location and great facilities for humans and pooches alike!

Probably the most dog friendly property we have ever stayed in. The owner Mandy and her two labradors made us very welcome. We used the apartment as a base to explore the area and went for walks on the beach (20 min away) visited the Cambrian mountains and just spent the most relaxing time. The views from our apartment were serene and we couldn’t have asked for more.

A gem of a find, such an amazing place.

Super dog friendly apartment with super dog friendly owner. We were made so welcome with fresh homemade bread waiting for us with milk, freshly laid eggs and orange juice. As we were stopping for Christmas Mandy also kindly left us some lovely gifts, not only for us but also the dogs. Muddy paws not a problem as dog towels available. Great location with loads of peace and quiet, will definitely be booking again. Thank you Mandy for such a wonderful Christmas it was just what we wanted.
