Beautiful cosy cottage in tranquil setting
We travelled as two families and two dogs to this beautiful home in the middle of farm fields. The cottage is spacious, inviting, cosy and beautiful - the games room is fabulous for the children. The log burner was a massive hit considering it was snowing and - temperatures outside. The setting is beautiful, fields and hills as far as the eye can see. The owner is welcoming and accommodating. Wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely be returning.

Superb Family Getaway
We travelled as two families consisting of 4 adults and 4 children with Buddy the dog. The cottage is spacious, warm and in the most picturesque of locations - away from it all! The owners are friendly and helpful and keep the place beautifully, providing lots of added extras to make your stay enjoyable. The games room is huge and a real bonus for cosy nights in as a group. I would gladly stay at the cottage again and was sad to leave to go home.

Lovely, homely cottage
We stayed over October half term with friends, four adults, four children. First impressions on arrival were excellent. Beautiful tucked away location, very clean , tidy and welcoming. The fantastic homemade cake was amazing! The huge separate games room was a real bonus and spent many hours in here with the kids. the property is spacious and it never feels like you are on top of each other. The only downside is having the one bathroom as it makes for slow progress getting out in the morning! The extra cost of £5:00 for towels per person seemed an unnecessary extra expense especially given the fact they are waiving this from 2017! No wifi or 4g/3g but that was good as the kids couldn't use their gadgets! Surrounding area truly lovely, well worth visiting the Elan valley, great pub, the Triangle in town.

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.
