Lovely cottage
Stayed here Friday to Monday it's literally in the middle of a farm hardly any properties around its perfect if you want peace and quiet(which we did). The owners have catered for everything you may need in the property and the hot tub has amazing views. There are no local shops around you will have to travel so take essentials with you but for me that's part of the charm. Didn't want to leave.

Cosy cottage in a beautiful location
Me and 5 friends stayed in this cottage for 2 nights in April. The cottage was very clean (we were initially worried reading past reviews, but had nothing to worry about). The views were absolutely amazing of the surrounding countryside! The owner was very easy to reach by ringing their mobile if we needed any information. After reading reviews we were worried about drinking water from the taps - but the owner assured us that the water was safe to drink despite it coming from a bore hole. It had all been checked by Welsh Water etc. The only two downfalls I can think of is the jets on the hot tub were slow, and the lack of wifi (wifi would have been handy to get music in all parts of the cottage as some rooms you could not get any signal). The hot tub was very warm and is in a cosy little room which was ideal with the cold and wet weather we had. The beds were very big and comfortable! The cottage itself was lovely and warm also, with comfortable sofas. Didn?t get around to using the log fire - we didn?t need to as the heating was very warm. It was also great that we could leave our rubbish bags in the yard outside so we didn?t have to walk far (despite past reviews stating they had to walk a mile away?). The owners also left us separate towels for using the hot tub which was very helpful as we didn?t need to lug wet towels home with us. It is set in a very secluded place so do expect to have to travel to get to a pub or a supermarket (Tesco is a 20 minute drive away, and we travelled 30 minutes to a Wetherspoons in Newtown). It was lovely and quiet in the nights. We did have a visit from a dog from the farm below (after speaking to the owner we found out that the dog used to live in this cottage and visits from time to time). We all fell in love with him! It would have been nice to check out at a later time on the Sunday (we had to check out at 10am), but the owner said the cleaners were booked in - so maybe something to look at in the future - a later check out time? All in all we had a great stay and would definitely come back in the future!

New year break
Very disappointed with this cottage. Not up to a standard you would expect. We cleaned cutlery and crockery before using. The hot tub was just like sitting in a warm bath as the jets not working properly. The freezer had not been defrosted in a very long time and the cooker hood/extractor was dirty. One of the cushions on the sofa was stained and the leather sofa needed a good clean. Water is from a bore hole and needed to be boiled before drinking. It would have been nice to have at least a bottle of water and a pint of milk on arrival. You had to travel about a mile down the lane to the bins to take your rubbish. Many of the windows were condensated and the curtain rails at the bedroom windows were not long enough. Would not recommend this place. Lovely views, shame about the cottage.

Fab Family weekend
Booked for the weekend (Friday to Monday) for 6 adults, 1 minor and a dog. Was a little apprehensive and even concerned after reading the previous 1 star review. However there was nothing to fear. Superb location with what must be the best countryside view we have ever had from a cottage. Lovely quiet secluded rural location just the way we like it. Hot tub was great although I would agree that a new cover is required but having said that we don't sit on the cover we sit in the hot tub - which was clean, lovely and hot at all times. We were lucky with the weather so I cannot comment on the heating. I walked to the collection point with the general waste on the last day. It took me 4 minutes 30 seconds (I used my stopwatch) to walk there from the cottage so either I am a lot fitter than I thought or its a lot closer than less than 2 miles away!!! In short we all agreed we had a fabulous time and I would have no concerns in booking again.

Fabulous stay as always
Breathtaking views with only one dwelling in the foreground, on a clear day penyfan in the Brecon Beacons can be seen! Lovely cottage with all the essentials for a self catering holiday. We visited the Fforest Inn between crossgates and Kington - highly recommend for food! Also visited the Elan Valley damns which are 100% a must do for anyone travelling in the direction, each visit is different. Views from hot tub were great, we had bottled water but understand you can boil the kettle to allow you to drink the water when cool. Enclosed garden - great for the dogs to have a run around.
