The cottage was very comfortable and well presented, the fact that all bedrooms were en suite was fantastic and we really liked the the lovely farmhouse style kitchen. The friendliness of the owners and their generosity was humbling. An absolutely brilliant holiday in a fantastic part of the country. It was a good central base for exploring scenic Wales.

We really loved the location of Tailor's Cottage, especially having the pub next door with such friendly owners. It was great to have an en-suite bathroom for each room. We also really appreciated the bara brith and flowers on arrival. Overall an excellent cottage!

My wife, myself and two friends stayed at this lovely property during the week of the Royal Welsh Show and were overwhelmed by the friendliness not only of the owners, John and Karen Jones, but of the local people who frequented John and Karen's pub at night. The property is very well set-out and has everything you might need. The furnishings are comfortable and in very good condition. We had excellent weather during our stay and managed to sit out in the garden. This also gave us a chance to talk with the occassional passer-by, and walkers tackling Glyndwr's Way. The pub, which opens at 8:00p.m., Monday to Saturday, is a 30 seconds walk away from the house. The house is attached to a post office, operated by Karen, and opens two days a week. As you can see, this is a very rural retreat. It is, however, a short drive to local towns Rhayder, Builth Wells, etc, and lies in, and near, superb scenery, including the Elan Valley. There are also frequent sightings of Red Kites over the house. If you want somewhere to stay on this area you should consider Taylors Cottage as one of your options.
