“ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Canal Bridge as a large family group , as we were staying for a wedding in Brecon. , We have stayed in cottage and self catering stays many times over the years , with our 4 children friends and our dog , and we have never stayed in a property that has had so much thought put into the furnishings and facilities!
Everything was spotlessly clean , beds were comfortable , towels generous and of a lovely thick quality , lots of powerful showers.The kitchen was huge , and was really well equipped , so feeding the masses was fine!

Lovely little courtyard garden with a great BBQ, large table and chairs , so perfect for summer evenings.The lounge was cosy , with plenty of comfortable seating , a nice big T.V. and lots of thought put into providing appropriate side tables etc.Games room a great addition for young and old , which meant we could split into smaller groups too.
So all the basics well and truly covered!!!
What makes this property stand out from the crowd for us was all the extra touches that make all the difference .
Plenty of toilet roll [ how many times have we been to self catering houses where there's barely enough to get through the first night before the shopping arrives]. A welcome basket of fruit bread butter tea coffee,and milk, together with HOMEMADE welsh cakes! dog bowls and some little treats for Poppy . Some spare dishwasher tablets , foil , bin bags etc ,to get us through the first day . Liquid soap in all the bathrooms, and I could go on and on .This is in my opinion is how self catering should be done !Thank you so much , we had a superb time , and now we have discovered how beautiful The Brecon Beacons are , we will be back !

“GREAT HOLIDAY LET”
Reviewed 4 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

A short note to say that Canal Bridge proved to be a great location for our group stay. The owners were very accommodating, putting extra beds in where required and the Welsh Cakes were extremely popular! Excellent facilities and rooms. We are looking to see whether we can return for a Club trip later in the year.

“Brilliant holiday house”
Reviewed 28 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

This house is brilliant. Owner, Kate, very nice, very helpful. We rented it for the weekend, for 10 female friends, inc 2 sisters.
Beautifully and thoughtfully equipped, including loads of books and games. Only one bath, if that's what your group likes, but loads of showers, and most rooms have ensuites. If you have mixed age children, the separate games/TV/Wii room with bean bags would be perfect. It was great for us as only some of us wanted to watch Andy Murray playing in Oz.
Beds v comfortable. Kitchen beautifully equipped, although the dishwasher didn't wash that well - check the arms aren't clogged up if you're in a holiday home with lots of people staying and using it. We had to clear the little holes, and run again. And take AAA batteries so you can play Pass the Bomb! Perfectly placed a few yards from the canal to do canal walks, hill walks, amble round town, eat out, etc. You can get everything you need in Brecon. It has small familiar, big-chain shops and loads of lovely little independents. Go to The Hours, have coffee and buy a book.
We got VERY muddy on our walk up hill/down dale through snow and mud, and house has good drying room for coats/boots.
Go see Brecon Cathedral. You won't believe it's a cathedral till you go inside.
No Wifi, some of us got 3G. But, hey, you can do without this for a weekend.
