A lovely, clean and well stocked property in a Stunning location. Our host was very friendly and welcoming. The downstairs bedroom/bathroom was perfect for my 80 year old dad. We ranged in age from 12-80 and the games rooms and well kept gardens kept us all happy. Incredibly peaceful however only a short drive from Llanidloes where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. A wonderful week and we would happily return.

Mrs S,

Lovely accommodation and a very helpful owner.

mr B,

For a family get together where we cooked and chilled out together, it was ideal. Great space for a party of 7 without feeling on top of each other. Will consider booking again .

Ms D,

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely property. It is very well equipped, it had everything we needed. The beds were extremely comfortable with beautiful linen. Very tastefully decorated. The games room was great fun. We had a lovely week and would come here again.

Ms A,

Really lovely cottage and location. Everything we wanted for a fun family holiday provided by friendly welcoming host. Would recommend.

Ms S,

The property was the best equipped of any rental that we have stayed in. The location was quite isolated but the facilities were perfect for our visit with three grandchildren ages 5 to 11 so much so that the parents and grandparents could relax whilst watching the children busy with football, cricket and tennis. The property exactly suited our needs.

Mr W,

First family holiday after Covid and what a place to have it! We had a 15 yrd old boy and an 80 year old grandmother. House & location perfect for both. Stunning setting, walks from the door, tennis court used every day as was the games room. We have never stayed in such a well equipped and comfortable property. It was exactly the break we needed and in a beautiful setting.

Mrs B,

Wonderful place to rest and relax, cottage furnished to a high standard, it had everything you could want and more. I really appreciated the bedroom on the ground floor with wet room (which is not on suite but very close by) as I had broken my foot the day before we left. Local pub served a lovely Sunday lunch but unfortunately that’s all the food they served at this particular time, I do believe in normal times they do other food. It was friendly and very welcoming. Just a note that sat nav’s do not take you directly there so do read the instructions that are sent to you once you reach Trefeglwys.

mrs H,
