December break
This is our second visit to the cottage this year, first trip in June for a quiet weekend to celebrate a birthday and this time for a full week to enjoy a festive family retreat tucked away in the Valleys! On arrival the cottage was spotless, lovely and warm & the fire had been lit with plenty of additional fire wood and everything you would need to attend to the fire - extra wood also available in the shed if needed. Lovely walks on the doorstep with the dog and perfect for tiring out our busy 3 year old with scenic river walks and farm animals to spot along the way. Despite the -2 weather the cottage was toasty our entire stay and views were utterly picturesque coated in a layer of frost early mornings. We made some really special Christmas memories this week, with a scenic drive out to Aberystwyth for a frosty walk on the beach and a festive visit to Powis Castle to enjoy the magic under the twinkle of the lights, roaming reindeer and mulled wine in the courtyard - both places were really easy to get to from the cottage but what a treat it was to return to the log fire, put a film on and enjoy giant hot chocolates tucked away from the world! As far as the facilities go there was nothing we were short of, a really comfortable stay if you embrace the cottage and all it has to give. The owners, like our last visit were really helpful and went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed and feel really approachable if you do need anything at all. There's no doubt about it this lovely little cottage has stolen a place in our hearts and is our perfect retreat away from the busy way of life we are used to in the Midlands.

A peaceful weekend tucked away
A last minute google bought us to Preachers Cottage, desperately needing a weekend away from the stresses of life and somewhere to celebrate a birthday together - we couldn't have found anything more perfect. It had EVERYTHING we needed and more, a little slice of heaven tucked away from the world. We explored the local walks with our dog, enjoyed fresh eggs from the (lovely) neighbour across the road and completely switched off to recharge for a few days with the added bonus of the hot tub. A welcome platter greeted us - lovely touch and so appreciated. Directions were clear and the cottage was spotless. Can't wait to return for another weekend in the future! 100% recommend!

Peaceful break
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 .

Not good
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.
