An excellent cottage in a quiet and scenic location. The cottage is well placed to access many places in central Wales. I would highly recommend this cottage to any party of 6-8 people who want to holiday in mid-Wales.

Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. Cottage provided all we needed for a lovely visit and the extra homely touches were very much appreciated. Games room was a major bonus for extra space and entertainment.

Perfect relaxing environment in a secluded and private spot, with plenty of space for a family. The games room was excellent, with a good choice of games and things to do. The table tennis table was our favourite. The outside space was absolutely beautiful and we really enjoyed relaxing around the large table and chairs on the large patio. The owners have thought of everything. It felt like a home from home immediately. Thank you for a memorable holiday. Everyone enjoyed it tremendously!

A really homely place, a lot of thought has gone into making it welcoming. There were comfortable places to sit and look out onto the fields, or watch TV. The games room is great, perfect if it rains or for an evening in. It is a really warm property with lots of hot water and three wood burning stoves. It is a great base for walks, cycling or driving around the beautiful countryside. Loved our stay there.

This was our third visit to the cottage and we still enjoyed the holiday as much as ever. The games room and the large garden is a bonus for a family because it enables everyone to have their own space when they need it.

We loved the location of cottage and the wonderful views. Had great gardens for the dogs and the games room was a hit with all the family. We will recommend to friends and we will return in the near future, the cottage was lovely and warm.

The cottage was perfect for two families with four small children and the games room was perfect for the rainy days.

It was in an idyllic setting, and the cottage was up a farm track away from it all! Perfect for a proper family holiday. The games room was a hot favourite with everyone.

Perfect getaway, the cottage was cosy and everything we expected. Would go again, and recommend. Great base for loads of walks and close to the beaches.

We had a great time chilling out and relaxing, as well as exploring the surrounding area. The games room was fantastic, loved the garden and being able to walk in the surrounding fields. The water tasted lovely! We enjoyed cosy evenings in front of the wood burner, the location was away from it all but accessible. Would certainly be happy to return anytime.

We confirmed this cottage for our group who were based at the Royal Welsh for the week. The location was within 15 minutes of the Show ground which was ideal for the daily commute. The owner went out of her way to welcome all who were staying at the cottage. A great welcome and a great service throughout their stay. Many thanks.

It was such an idyllic, secluded location with beautiful views. We loved watching the red kites flying overhead, and the bats in the garden at twilight. A lovely house, we would definitely come back.

Just sheep and birds to listen to, lovely! Not too far from anywhere really and everyone very friendly. Will definitely consider going again and recommend to friends. FABULOUS !!!!!!

Loved the setting, the house itself and the games room. Very well furnished, with enough space for us all to not feel cramped. Brilliant holiday retreat and everyone that joined us has asked that we visit again in the future.

The quiet and tranquil setting of the cottage. Lots of room for parking and for the children to play. The games room was fantastic - not only for the children.

Fabulous welcome with cake and drinks on arrival. Cottage best equipped we have ever been to, even managed to bake a cake. Games room a big hit with everyone, great array of games. Hot water available all the time, all facilities brilliant. Log burners lovely, although only used once as we had gorgeous weather so not really needed. Will definitely consider going again. Brilliant! !!!!!
