Vale Farm Cottages are traditional barns that have been recently converted into stylish cottages combining character with modern luxury living. Nestled deep in the heart of Wales with-in the picturesque Hamlet of Lower Chapel, these beautiful cottages are surrounded by scenery that could not fail to impress.
Situated on the Edge of the Brecon Beacons amongst beautiful countryside on a traditional working farm which is close to Brecon, Builth Wells, hay on Wye, Crickhowell and Abergavenny. Located on a traditional working farm with cows, sheep, hens, pigs and our donkey called Star. Our farm tours are very popular with the all the family and our play area with swings, slides, sand pit and football goals are situated by the cottages.
Vale Farm Cottages cater from 4 – 11 guests all feature original oak beams in all the rooms and have spacious living rooms with French doors opening onto views of Pan-y-Van and the Black mountains in a farm court yard setting, ideal for al fresco dining or a barbeque. A great location to meet up with family and friends, large enough to cater for groups and business trips and with the optionally of having The Coppice function room with kitchen area onsite for parties, conferences and group meetings.
We stayed here as a family of 4 with two young children just after the two week Welsh lockdown. The cottage is in the perfect location with incredible views from the grounds and the balcony. Its "upside down" layout lets you take full advantage of the views. It's also really well equipped with kitchen utensils like a pizza cutter, plates, bowls, children's cutlery etc. Also had tea, coffee and sugar included which is always very helpful. There was a stairgate across the stairs, and a highchair. There was also a baby bag in the pool area.
It's a 10 minute drive into Brecon with its nice shop...more
So relaxing loved the pool and hot tub .Emma very helpful with my husband who is disabled . My family came up for weekend and loved it. Enjoyed all the animals around us loads of squirrels pheasants also spotted red kites flying near cottages a lovely break in these difficult times.
We enjoyed a few days away at Vale Farm. This is our 4th time here and Emma and team never fail to make our stay wonderful. Relaxing, welcoming and the perfect location. Thank you. We look forward to our next stay.
Excellent location. Very tranquil and serene. The Walnut cottage was very cosy and ideal. Fully facilitated. However, I must say, the cleanliness was a bit of a downfall. Pots, pans etc, very sticky and far too much dust especially in the high areas such as beams. Could do with a really good clean. The pool and Jacuzzi were a plus in the whole stay.
Stayed here for 3 nights and was lovely! Cannot fault anything about the cottage. Beds were comfy, kitchen well equipped and nice large bedrooms. Due to Covid, the pool & hot tub were on allocated 1.5 hour time slots which suited us as we had these to ourself during this time. (Be up for 8am to get down and reserve your slot) The wifi and signal is very weak inside the cottage but this was no issue for us! The play area and animals around the cottage were lovely & the kids enjoyed these very much! Thanks for a lovely stay!
Beautifully located on a working farm, in the middle of the countryside. Best part of this stay was the pool and hot tub! Lucky to have almost private use of both for most of our stay. The cottage we stayed in was warm and comfortable but would benefit from new mattresses on the beds. A bit dusty too, but out of season so maybe not so frequently cleaned. We'll equipped with everything needed for self catering. WiFi is a bit hit and miss, but not unexpected due to the location. Emma was very friendly and helpful without getting in the way of our stay. Readily available on the phone too. Would s...more
