An excellent holiday property in a truly magnificent location!
We have just returned from our second visit to the Old House Holiday Cottage which for us was a first as we have never before returned to a cottage we have previously rented. So many aspects make this an exceptional property to rent for a holiday. Firstly, the location is perfect with magnificent views across the valley, the imposing Llyn Clywedog dam and is ideally situated for a peaceful relaxing time. The cottage is located on a working Welsh Hill Farm, and we were there towards the end of the lambing season. Our granddaughter spent early mornings watching the lambs skipping in the surrounding fields, actually the adults did as well! Secondly, and just as important, the owners, Kayleigh and Stuart, are extremely welcoming and pleased to help with nothing being too much trouble. The property is of a very high standard, there is plenty of space, the beds are very comfortable and the large galley kitchen is well equipped. All aspects of the Old House reflect Kayleigh?s attention to detail and perfection. Thirdly, there are plenty of outdoor places and activities to pursue. Llyn Clywedog, Hafren Forest trails, the Red Kite feeding station at Bwlch Nant yr Arian, the Vale of Rheidol Railway and the Elan Valley were particularly enjoyable and are all within an hour?s driving from the house. We would thoroughly recommend this as a rental property and holiday location.

Everything you could wish for in a holiday home and more.
This holiday " cottage" is exceptional. It is more like a home that has been made available to you by a friend. Immaculately clean, 2 bathrooms plus downstairs toilet, enormous kitchen with loads of seating and comfortable beds. The views from the house are superb.....watching the red kites soaring over the hills. Lots to do and see in the vicinity we visited Aberystwyth with it's amazing views, Dolgellau, the Devil's Bridge and waterfall is a must ...as long as you have strong knees. Machynlleth is a thriving little town, with so many interesting shops and great on market day.The hill road from Machynleth to Llanidloes is an absolute must, the vistas are amazing. Cader Idris and the nature reserve are beautiful and those younger than us can climb to to the top.So much to see and do we only scratched the surface. Kayleigh and Stuart are kind and friendly hosts. Lovely relaxed peaceful holiday.

The Old House was very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The location is exceptional with views across to the Clywedog Dam and down the valley towards Llanidloes. Being located on a working sheep and beef farm provided additional interest, as the sheep were being sheared during our stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again. There is plenty to do and see in the area, with forest trails, reservoirs and dams, narrow gauge railways and spectacular scenery. We highly recommend this property and the local area.

The cottage was beautiful and we really enjoyed the log fire. The view from the cottage was breathtaking and definitely needs to be made more of in the cottage details! We had everything that we needed and the owner was more than helpful. I will be recommending the cottage to everyone.
