A real farm...
It's in the middle of a farm and as an animal lover I expected to love this however, as a real working farm, you are going to see sheep thrown about onto trucks outside your kitchen window, you are going to see dead sheep if you walk around the farm.
The barn itself was nice, could've been cleaner but was alright, simple things were broken like the chain on the bath plug had been replaced with a bobby pin, upstairs toilet flush had something wrong with it, it also lacked some basic items like a scissors ect...
The hotub was lovely, stayed clean all week with 11 people jumping in and out.
All in all, it was alright.
Just returned from a weeks stay at this holiday let... as a party of 11 of us we found this location to be a good base for surrounding activities and sight seeing.
When we first saw the reviews we were sceptical and slightly worried at what we may have booked altho on arrival had no problems with the owners infact we saw a few workers who all seemed pleasant. Work on the farm did start around 8:30 but we are all early birds anyway and quite enjoyed watching all the activity from the house..
House/barn is large and spacious and the hot tub is lovely and was maintained daily or every other day..
The property does have signs of wear and tear but most holiday lets do..
Rhayader is 3 miles away and we enjoyed a sunday carvery in the lamb and flag pub... a chippy tea and a nice Chinese, the town also has free parking and a spar supermarket.
The house photos can be misleading but you are on a working farm and do have 3 other farm buildings/barns around you... we found this no issue and still had a good view of the hills..
The house inside was minimal but did have most things you need, our only issue was no tumble dryer so we had trouble drying the kids clothes and a shortage of cutlery seen as their was 11 of us.
All in all we had a good time and kids loved the wifi speed and the tub...
Thank you for our stay

Not as expected
Looks great at the pictures, however, in reality this cottage is in the middle of the farm. Tractors around, farm with animals on the left hand side and piles of cow dung everywehre. House is spacious and could fit a big family or group of friends. Two cleaners came in the monring to check on the jacuzzi, we didnt like the fact that people come over to the property without any notice. Host is quite rude and we didn't feel welcome there.
A very bad experiance. Absolutely awwful Owner. Useless Sykes cottages agency.
Booked a cottage for our wedding anniversary. Had a very bad experience. Simply horrified the way we were treated by Sykes Cottages and the Owner. After first night we stayed we had argument with the owner. He became extremely aggressive leading the threats against my husband and I. Our daughter was frightened and would not move from room. We feel so let down and poor little girl heartbroken that she couldnt spend weekend as it had been planned.
House clean enough. Nor sure about beds though as it looks like they had bugs. Every morning my daughter and I would wake up with rash all over our bodies.
Sykes "customer service" and management team have been completely ineffectual and just wasted our time on the phone having done nothing to help us. I believe they need some training or, they are in the wrong profession.
DO NOT stay here, even if its the last cottage on earth. Better to go join the homeless down on the corner of the street, than to deal with such an Owner or Sykes Cottages.
