What an amazing place to stay!

What an amazing place to stay! The cottage is an idyllic countryside location. The views are the best we’ve had from an AirBnb. The host is incredibly welcoming and was so helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The cottage is very well equipped, with lots of thoughtful touches (especially the welcoming hamper). We stayed with young children who enjoyed the space as well as the books and toys. There are gorgeous walks out from the cottage and nice market towns close by with good delis and bakeries. The cottage is very comfortable with lovely big beds and 3 good sized bathrooms! It was super clean and nicely modernised. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking too. A fantastic post-lockdown holiday and we would love to return.

Superb cottage in a beautiful location

What a brilliant stay – a superb cottage in a beautiful location. Jackie and David are wonderful, warm hosts with an eye for detail – fresh flowers, blankets every, a generous welcome basket of treats and plenty of lovely toys, games and books for our children. Nothing was too much trouble. We could barely get ourselves away from the terrace with the stunning view. We had most meals outside to make the most of it. The cottage itself is really spacious, very clean and fully equipped with anything you may need. The beds are huge and soooooo comfortable; combined with plentiful hot water and an enormous bath with fluffy towels made for a very relaxing stay. Our young boys (6 and 3) enjoyed running free, chatting to the chickens, feeding the fish and spotting the huge array of birds – especially the magnificent kites circling the valley. The location offers some great walks from the cottage and beautiful peaks and lakes nearby. Bliss – we’ll be back.

The perfect long weekend break!

The perfect long weekend break! The cottage is absolutely wonderful- we had everything we needed and more. The bed was the largest and most comfortable I’ve ever stayed in and an equally excellent bath!! The view was astoundingly beautiful and we were so lucky with the weather that we had all our breakfasts (and pre dinner aperitivo!) overlooking the valley. What more could you want! There were lovely walks in the nature reserve nearby and we even found a perfect (very cold!) spot for wild swimming not too long a drive away, near Llanwrtyd. Jackie and her partner were excellent with communication and went above and beyond making us feel welcome and creating a very special birthday. I would highly recommend and hope to visit again very soon!
