Lovely secluded house
We stayed here over the Feb half term with two young boys and extended family. It's obviously very thoughtfully looked after by the owners, we had no problems and the complimentary basket, alongside the excellent stock of plates, utensils, herbs, spices, gravy etc really did come I'm very handy The location was perfect for us, very quiet with only a 5 minute drive to Knighton. There's a lot of space in the house, and we used to two living rooms, 2 games rooms and grounds quite a bit. The boys and dog loved playing in the grounds and stream at the bottom of the garden (supervised of course). A good indicator to the thoughtfulness of the owner is how we found towels specifically for the dog after coming in. We didn't try many of the walks due to the age of the children, but did travel a little and what we saw looked interesting! We will definitely be returning to here, thank you for a lovely stay.

don't judge a book by its cover!
My husband booked this for us & family for my 30th in February, pulling up to the cottage I was sceptical and thinking it's not going to be nice inside.. as the saying goes "don't judge a book by its cover" inside was spotless I fell in love! very spacious. the welcome basket was lovely with wine, bread, Welsh cakes, tea bags, coffee even flowers left on the table was so thoughtful of the owners, we did meet the owner as the shower was leaking which we didn't know so when we arrived he popped down with someone else to put some filler in.. we asked about the cottages history and he told us it was very interesting and lovely that it has been kept in the family. the decor is nice.. with comfortable beds and bathrooms were of good size, games room and hot tub was an added bonus also the washing machine was much needed.. I would definately recommend this to others and will be back again soon!

Excellent Holiday home and location
Very peaceful location, excellent facilities, lots of space and lots to do. I would recommend visits to the Judge's Lodging in Presteigne as well as Ludlow and Shrewsbury in particular. Owner's extremely helpful and they left us a welcome basket which was very kind of them. Great place for a family holiday.

Fantastic Cottage
We have just all returned from a lovely week away in this beautiful cottage. I cannot recommend this cottage enough. Loved the welcome hamper, which included a bottle of wine, eggs, Welsh cakes, bread, milk, tea and coffee and lots more. All the little touches were brilliant like the washing up liquid, hand soap, dishwasher tablets etc... Thank you very much. The cottage was spotless and very clean. We all loved the hot tub and the games room especially the table tennis. We look forward to staying again.

Great farmhouse
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!)
