Plooney Cottage is situated in a beautiful setting and is very relaxing. We loved the quality of the furnishings and linens. The hot tub was a luxurious touch. The owners were very nice and helpful if you needed anything. We will happily recommend this cottage to friends and family.

The owners are incredibly welcoming and helpful. The hot tub is clean and we loved going in each night after dinner and watching the sun set in the valley. The location is brilliant, only a 10 minute walk to beautiful views on a ridge. I will definitely be returning to Ploony Cottage!

A fabulous cosy cottage in a remote area, ideal for dog walking. Lovely owners were on hand for any advice, they also let our children assist in lamb feeding which they loved.The Hot tub was amazing especially when it was lit up in the evening. Perfect!

A great cottage in a great location on a working farm, with farmland walks and a forest for cycling and dog walking nearby.

I particularly liked the remoteness of Ploony Cottage, the jacuzzi and that it was very good for the dogs especially as the garden was enclosed.

This was a nice quiet remote location. The hot tub was great, looking out over the fields watching the lambs, kites and buzzards. The owners were extremely helpful. We would definitely recommend.

The location of Ploony Cottage was perfect, quiet, remote and surrounded by open countryside. Local attractions were within easy reach. Decor was comfortable and homely. We will book again.

My husband and I run our own business, so peace and quiet was a must, and we got it! An amazing location and an amazing cottage. Highly recommend to couples and families. The hot tub in the garden was a lovely treat after a long walk. Will definitely return.

It was a lovely place to stay and the owners were warm and friendly. It was very much a home from home and we loved every minute. The furniture was of a very high standard and there was good quality crockery and decent wine glasses to name just a few things, 10 out of 10.

Well where do I start, I booked the cottage back in late 2015 as we wanted somewhere we could escape as a couple with our two English pointers. After trawling the internet for a rental property Ploony Cottage jumped out at me especially as it was pet friendly. The pictures looked fantastic and a quick phone call to Skyes cottages to check that the garden was enclosed, which it was we booked a week in July. Lindsey and her partner made contact with us a few days before we were due to arrive to check if we had any questions and to let us know how to enter the property, which I thought was really nice especially as she was just about to give birth to her second daughter the day of our arrival. So we arrived in the lovely village of Bleddfa and took the directions they had given us past the pub and started down a single track road. I really didn't think we were going the right way as we just kept going in to the middle of a valley completely isolated from the outside world. This to us was a dream come true as in the advert for the cottage I don't think you can quite imagine the amazing location the cottage is in. All of a sudden you see the small holding of Darren and Lindseys house and then Ploony Cottage next door surrounded by rolling hills. We entered the cottage to be greeted by lovely flowers, Welsh cakes, dog treats and a bottle of wine. A little touch that made a big difference. The cottage is beautiful, definitely my dream cottage. A huge kitchen with stable door style doors to the front and rear, and a bright and well equipped lounge with huge reclining sofas, TV, Wifi, DVD player and a stunning wood burner for those cold nights. There was already a baby gate on the stairs which was great as we had brought one just incase for the dogs so they couldn't get upstairs. Upstairs three stunning bedrooms, one huge master bedroom with gorgeous morning views over the fields when your laying in bed, two further rooms which were also spacious but we didn't use. Finally a bathroom/shower room. Outside the gardens are stunning, a large gravel/patio area for an afternoon BBQ or just a glass of wine in the evening watching the sun go down. Our dogs loved the space they have spend every day exploring and running up and over the small stream that runs through the garden. Again all totally enclosed, but perhaps a clever small dog might be able to escape. They loved watching the chickens and the sheep come up to the garden fence, definitely something they don't see at home. The walking around the cottage is breath taking, there isn't anywhere you cant walk. Obviously if there are sheep we kept ours on there leads but it wasn't a problem as just outside the cottage there are huge fields empty which we let them have a good run around. There are some amazing views if you have the energy to walk up to the tops of the valley, definitely worth it in my opinion, you can see for 20 miles. You honestly wouldn't need to leave the cottage if you didn't need any extra food. there is so much to explore right on your door step. But if you do go out there is a huge co-op in Knighton 15 minutes drive or a large tescos 30 minutes drive. We also drove out to the nearby Radnor forest and walked around there aswell, again great views from the top across the valleys. So finally last but not least, the HOT TUB a relaxing way to end the day and relieve those tensions from a days walking. I don't think there is much more to say other than what an amazing place and Lindsey and Darren are the most friendliest people you will meet and if their anything you need they are more than happy to help. Will definitely recommend 5* from the Potts family.

Well myself my husband two friends and two dogs and our six year old had a lovely relaxing stay at Ploony cottage celebrating my birthday , the directions given my Lindsey and Darren were spot on and it truly is a lovely drive upto the cottage and their home you really think you are going into the middle of nowhere , a beautiful welcome of local cakes , wine and flowers were a nice treat and the owners and their little family are lovely . The hot tub and lovely garden and patio was a peaceful retreat from civilisation , no light pollution to the beautiful night skies only the sound of the stream , birds and farm animals were to be heard . Plenty of walks and cycling can be done from the cottage and the local Radnor Forest is lovely too . There are plenty of places to visit like Ludlow ,Kington , hay on Wye and Elan valley and the town of Knighton for pubs and shops is just s short drive away . The cottage is lovely , spacious and set in a beautiful location with very welcoming owners , overall us as s family with our friends and the dogs had a lovely week and the weather was hot too

The owners could not have done more to make our stay comfortable, even with our 9 month old sold. They provided a travel cot, high chair, and even let us share the toys and swing belonging to their little daughter. The cottage was immaculately presented, lovely master bedroom. Very comfy bed and duvet. The local village pub was temporarily closed when we visited which was a shame, but lovely walks from the cottage regardless-within 15 minutes walk from the cottage the views are as good as you might get after an hour of climbing up a hill in another location. The hot tub was well maintained, and we loved it, we used it most nits after the little one had gone to bed, watching the sunset from the hot tub.

A picturesque cottage in a lovely, peaceful setting with wonderful views down the valley. There were plenty of maps and guide books in the cottage, which came in handy when planning walks in nearby Radnor Forest and along Offa's Dyke. Having a private hot tub felt like a real indulgence, especially after a 20 km hike! A thoroughly enjoyable week in a gorgeous, unspoilt part of the world.
