Great holiday but some mixed opinions
A great holiday spent with an extended family - celebrating three birthdays. This is a lovely location, beautiful countryside, amazing character house and super outdoor heated pool which the children really enjoyed - the adults preferred the outdoor tub! Peacocks, geese and chickens in the grounds add to the atmosphere. Beautifully furnished as well with huge TVs. Despite it being a typical English summer the patio is well sheltered and we spent most evenings outside and had two barbaques - if it had been sunnier a patio umbrella might have been needed. There is enough grounds to satisfy the most active of families (we played rounders one evening). It's a really quiet location - though early morning chorus from peacocks may wake you! But don't come here if you need to log on to broadband. The broadband was limited to say the least - 0.025Mbs on wifi next to the router - drove our younger generation up the walls in frustration. Maybe the previous week's visitors used up their monthly satellite allowance but in my opinion if you advertise broadband as being available then it should be! That said it did mean more time was spent enjoying the other facilities and each other's company! Small asides: some beams are low so expect to have to keep ducking if you are over 5' 8" (it's part of the houses great character); the attic bedrooms are suitable only for younger family members, neither have curtains or blinds (so sleeping in is hard) and one has no door between it and the stairs / landing; there are only three bathrooms in the house (two on suite) plus a downstairs w/c and poolroom shower room outside. The master bedroom is amazing.

The accommodation was amazing and the location in Wales was beautiful

This is a beautiful property in a beautiful rural location. Having both a heated swimming pool and a hot tub made it very special.
Mr Morris

What an amazing family holiday we had. We couldn't have asked for more! As soon as we arrived, a beautiful feeling of peace and tranquillity resided and we all immediately felt 'at home'. From 1 year old to 80 years old, it was the perfect place to reflect, spend time with extended family and make memories. The owners are there if you need them but not encroaching in any way. The delivery of fresh, free range eggs from hens you can see running around in the field next to you, both on arrival and on our last day, was a lovely touch. And the peacocks are spectacular! The pool and jacuzzi are an added bonus.

We were blessed with good weather so the heated pool & the hot tub were in daily use. Fabulously secure grounds for our 2 dogs to roam. Big gas BBQ & lovely outside dining area perfect for our family to eat around. Would return & will definitely recommend. Thank you.
