RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
Just had a 4 day break at the cottage very remote setting with not a lot around but ideal for our needs .Very quirky place and was spotlessly clean on our arrival .Kitchen has everything you need including dishwasher and washing machine ,lounge was comfortable and had sky tv and free wifi which was good as no phone signal.Power shower over the bath and main bedroom had a king size bed which was very comfortable and the window overlooked the farm next door lovely sight in the morning looking at the chickens and sheep wandering around yet very quiet .Outside the highlight is the hot tub which is under a roof cover so no matter the weather you can use it which we did everyday all in all nice little cottage to use as a base to discover the area but make sure you bring plenty of food and drink supplies as nearest shop is a 15 minute drive away .
Unfortunately the attention to detail was not good the bathroom was mouldy and the shower screen hadn't been cleaned. When we first walked into the kitchen we were greeted by 2 fly papers hanging up which had looked very old and needed refreshing. The beds were so hard you could feel every spring we had to buy a air bed as we had such a terrible few days sleep which ruined 2 days of our holiday. The house could do with secondary glazing as the windows were wet every morning and you can hear next doors dog. Living in an old property myself understand how much this helps. The hot tub was good hence why I didn't give this a 1 rating. We were too upset by the last day to contact the owner.
Will not return
We arrived at the cottage early evening and as described enclosed garden with steps leading to cottage.
On entering the cottage it was very clean and had everything you needed.
As we settled in for the evening we noticed a huge amount of house flies in the cottage, we went too bed and on getting up the next morning there were at least 30 flies especially around the fireplace in the kitchen. As the weather had been damp we thought this would be why. We went and got some fly spray and fly strips, it continued all week. We have spoken to James the owner who could not understand but said he would resolve this. Cottage does require a little tlc but overall is nice but we spent most of our holiday outside due to about 30-50 flies daily such a shame.
Great place to stay - very private and peaceful
Loved the place because it was so well appointed and quiet. Nice to just relax. Ideal for a couple with children perhaps. Space for 4 people. Front and rear doors, nice kitchen/diner. CH & HW: simple to use wood burning stove if you would like.
The place was nice and clean and welcoming. The neighbours were nice. Chickens and ducks wandering around. Friendly neighbourhood cat who took a shine. Local shop (main road, turn right) is excellent - even has a post office 1 day/week. Garage next door (cheaper than the supermarket) to shop. There are pubs and restaurants round about. Good for walking. Short drive to some stunning scenery Elan Valley.
Would I book again - yes, no hesitation.
All in all a well looked after cottage.
Weekend of relaxation
We have just returned from a fantastic stay at Preachers cottage!
The winter months really are a beautiful time to visit this hidden gem for complete relaxation.
The owner greeted us on arrival, had the hot tub up and running and the log burner lit ready for us! The cottage is in an idylic area surrounded by nearby walks which we went on daily. For short drives around varying between 4 minutes and 20 minutes or further if you wish.. there are some beautiful places to walk. All information is well stocked at the cottage. Upon return, we continued the relaxation in the dream hot tub which is extremely high quality with a back, leg and feet aqua massager... perfect for after those long walks. All towels were provided and plenty of them.
The cottage is situated in the countryside, the journey to it is breathtaking and the neighbours are equally adorable with chickens and ducks roaming. Their owl can be heard from the cottage and adds to the tranquility. The neighbour even gave us freshly laid eggs for our bacon sarnies, they were amazing too!
We are frequent travellers and prepared for this self catering stay well. The cottage is equipped for your cooking needs and really is home from home.
Take plenty of food, drink and be prepared with walking boots and warm clothing. We don't normally return to places we have already been to but this one is an exception and we will be returning. You wont be dissapointed!
Ps our 2 little dogs loved it and didn't want to leave!
