Harp cottage was the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Spacious, clean and tidy with plenty of pots and pans in the kitchen, one could easily of cooked a three course meal and more. With easy access to The Offas Dyke Path, the location was perfect for our walking holiday.

This is a lovely place if you want peace and quiet. Its fairly remote and amenities such as shops pubs etc are a short drive away but the views are stunning and the walks nearby are great. The cottage is well equipped and we were very comfortable there. The internet is good quality so we had lots of online entertainment options.

Comfortable cottage with beautiful views, especially sunsets overlooking Welshpool. Peaceful location, handy for walks on the Offa's Dyke path. Road access narrow and quite steep in parts, could be an issue in winter months.

The most tranquil of places, great for walking but close to towns and places to visit. Every thing was spotless and the kitchen was well equipped. There is enough space for you to be on your own if you wish.

Our family of 4 had a wonderful time. The cottage was perfectly located, well equipped and a snuggly home away from home. Thoroughly recommend for those wanting a quiet getaway with access to beautiful woodland walks.

Lovely clean and comfortable cottage. The kitchen was very well equipped and it was useful having a utility to store items in. The views from the front of the cottage were stunning and the sunsets were amazing. The cottage is very remote but the peace and quiet is great. There aren't any shops nearby, with the nearest places being Montgomery or WelRead moreshpool which are about 6miles away. The approach to the cottage is up a very steep hill and narrow road. Hide

As a family of 4 with 2 teenagers we were very happy at the cottage. Used it as a base to combine some country walks with visits to places like Powys Castle, Porthmadog-Ffestiniog steam train, and nearby Montgomery (lovely). The Jubilee beacons appearing on the hillsides all around was a memorable sight and we were thankful for the views from Harp Read morecottage. Hide

This place is simply amazing. The location is superb, pitched above the valley with stunning 360degree views. The forest at the side is great for walks and exploring and the cottage itself is truly amazing. We will certainly be back here again soon.
