Superb property. Beautiful barn conversion in a lovely setting. Owners on site, very pleasant and helpful but not intrusive. Equipment generous - we had three family members visit us and there was plenty of crockery and cutlery. Machynlleth market day Wednesday. Slate area of Corris interesting - drop in to Idris Stores for best coffee in Wales (so their customers claim). Jeffrey from Lancashire - 26th June 2018
Our hosts were lovely and were very kind and helpful. We had a great stay and would recommend the property for getting away from it all in a very beautiful part of the world.Ali from Portishead - 14th May 2018
