Nestled on the edge of the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park is the hidden holiday gem that is Derwen Coach House of Brynderwen Holidays.
Finding dog friendly accommodation for a holiday can sometimes be difficult when you have multiple dogs - not the case here, they're happy to welcome multiple dogs - in fact they welcome them FREE OF CHARGE!
Dog owners themselves, the very lovely and accommodating Phil and Emma have thought of literally everything when it comes to holidaying with your hound. The usual dog accessories are on hand - dog bowls, blankets etc... but this place has the ULTIMATE dog garden attached to it. Fling open the door on the porch and be safe in the knowledge your dog can happily run around to its hearts content in a HUGE lawned and securely fenced paddock.
Feed RAW? no problem, a chest freezer is at your disposal and theres a local pet supply store to purchase it from too! If you've never been to the area before, they have very kindly given you an amazing folder full of dog friendly places to visit, and local walks to get your adventure off to a flying start! There's even a dog first aid kit in the cupboard should your pup get into mischief while you're out!
Not content with providing your pooch with everything they might need on their holiday, they also provide them (and you!) with some yummy welcome treats to settle you in. The on site free range hens also provide you with a few complimentary eggs, and if you're lucky like us, you might even end up with a double yolker - these were very much appreciated by our little monkey who was also holidaying with us as you can see!
The coach house itself is beautifully presented. Rustic tiles throughout, with fresh, clean (and sometimes dog themed!) decor. You enter through a sizeable porch - ideal for drying off the dogs after a wet walk. Immediately inside is the very adequately size and well equipped kitchen, through to a cosy living area with attached conservatory, double bedroom and stylish well sized bathroom - everything you require for a self catering break in comfort. There is a TV in both the living area and bedroom (incase you want to watch different channels!) and a washer dryer is installed in the kitchen should the welsh weather catch you off guard!
If mother nature is kind during your visit, providing you with the glorious sunshine we've had of late, then theres even a lovely outdoor area for you to enjoy alfresco dining and a fire pit to sit around to roast marshmallows in the evening.
The Coach house does come with NEIGH-bours though... The gorgeous Nelly and Piper. A super friendly young horse and her little pony buddy who are happy to say hi to the dogs and people alike.
