We had an amazing stay at the farm for 10 girls on a relaxing chilled weekend! The farm house was spacious, clean and very well equipped.

The surroundings of this house are absolutely beautiful, the location is perfect. The house was very clean and felt very homely. The space in the house is great for big families and children. The games room and hot tub are great added extras and made the stay very enjoyable.

A beautiful house nestled in amongst the rolling fields of Wales with many good walks and pubs nearby. . Lots of space for the seven of us who went as it would happily accommodate ten and the hosts were nice but not intrusive.

This is a lovely property in lovely surroundings. We had great fun using the hot tub and games room, the kitchen was the most well equipped we have been in and the bedrooms were nicely done and very comfy. It was nice to meet the owner and know they were nearby if we needed anything. You can walk all around and its only a short walk into Knighton if you need anything. I think we only took the car out to fill it with fuel for our return journey! All in all an excellent property, we came home relaxed and refreshed and would encourage anyone looking at it to just book it - you won't be disappointed!

The house was perfect. Warm, comfortable, quiet and relaxing. It had everything we could need. The hot tub and the games room were fantastic and used every day.

Absolutely everything was wonderful. It is a really spacious property and despite it's size, lovely and warm, and with plenty of room for the children to play. There were TVs in almost every room and the children made good use of the games room. Despite the gales and the winter weather, the hot tub was a great success and we all used it, and couldn't keep the children out of it! The lovely big cooking range made cooking for all 10 of us a breeze. Honestly I cannot make one negative comment. We hope to return for another family reunion next year.

This was an excellent house to base our weekend. It is very large and immaculately turned out. The kitchen was perfect for a family holiday and the view/position of the house was amazing.

The farmhouse had everything we wanted for an early Christmas for a large group of friends from all over the UK. When booking, the hot tub and pet friendly rating were deal-breakers, but the games room was an added bonus, providing great fun along with walks from the doorstep. It was warm and spacious, the showers were great and there was plenty of space for wet and muddy walking gear. Easy trips out to Offa's Dyke Path and Elan Valley, and forestry walks for the dog. A great week had by all (and all wanted to return!)

Stayed here for a week with my girlfriend and her family, arriving on the Friday teatime to a welcome basket including a bottle of wine, butter, eggs and much more as well as a box of homemade scones. The house was clean and perfect for a family holiday. The games room including a table tennis table, pool table, darts and table football was used by everyone on a daily basis and provided us with loads of fun for everyone aged 6-80. The rooms were spacious and very well decorated, with 2 single rooms, 2 double rooms (one with an ensuite) and a king sized room, as well as a main bathroom, toilet room and a shower room downstairs. The hot tub was used by most and as we had nice weather we were able to sit and enjoy the views. The cottage is far away from the town, even though it says it is a mile walk, it is a lot longer meaning we had to drive. The town itself is run down and there isn't much there apart from a few cafes and a supermarket as well as a couple of pubs.

a group of 10 of us booked this cottage as a little get away from the city and to enjoy the seclusion of the country side, the cottage is beautiful located in the middle of a valley sounded by rolling welsh hills, we where greeted with a lovely welcome basket with fresh eggs laid on the farm and freshly baked biscuits and a bottle of wine. every room was nicely decorated and the beds where very very comfortable! The hot tub was amazing there isnt a negative comment i could make about this holiday cottage!

I stayed at Cwmgilla Farm for a week at the end of June with my husband, parents, sister and her family for a three generation family holiday. The accommodation was excellent and perfect for our needs, with lots of space to spread out and plenty of bathroom facilities for us all. The house is in an idyllic location, not far from Knighton, but very peaceful and the views from the house are breathtaking. The house is very comfortable, well decorated and appointed and was very clean. The kitchen was well equipped with nice crockery and everything we needed to cook large meals and to bake. The games room was a real hit with both the younger and older members of our group and the hot tub was well used, even in the rain. Amanda and Mark were really kind and accommodating and very responsive. The very generous welcome hamper was a lovely touch and included fresh flowers and wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, in spite of the weather not being great, and would definitely recommend this lovely holiday home. We booked an online Asda delivery in advance, which worked very well and had an evening meal at the Red Lion in Knighton which was excellent and the pub is dog-friendly.

fantastic rural property, lots of room for the seven of us who stayed for a long weekend. Definitely a home from home, with everything you need if you decided to eat in rather than pop to one of the excellent restaurants/pubs in the village. Amanda and Mark were very welcoming and the basket of goodies was very welcome, especially the homemade flapjacks. We made good use of the games room and despite the weather even used the hot tub. You will need a designated driver if you do go to the village pubs, We will definitely be back and highly recommend Cwmgilla Farm.

We stayed here last weekend, and it was absolutely amazing! The owner was lovely and more than accommodating. There was a really thoughtful basket waiting for us with all the staples we would need (including wine :) ), The games room was a huge plus, especially with the weather being so bad. Spacious, clean, and plenty to do. If I had to critique something it would be that maybe a cover over the hot tub would be beneficial as it was raining for a large amount of the time we were there. We had a fantastic time and have all decided that we would rebook for 2016!
