This was the perfect spot to unwind and enjoy some birthday celebrations. The hobbit hut itself was just amazing, well designed, fabulously furnished with everything you needed. They has every appliance we could’ve needed, making it an easy and stress free stay. The location is stunning, with highland cows and sheep in the field opposite and red kites flying above – great to watch whilst sitting in the hot tub.
There’s plenty to do around the area, but as we only stayed 2 nights we made the most of the hut itself with a quick visit to Elan Valley which is just a 10 minute drive away. We enjoyed so much we’re already planning our next trip back, an amazing trip – highly recommend.

What a lovely stay! Burrow view was just what we needed! The views were great, the kids and the dog thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything was so clean and tidy, the skylight (although fun for the kids to peer in) it wasn’t great at night/early morning. It could do with a blind. Make sure to take an eye mask!
Overall fantastic stay and we will return.

We had an amazing time staying at Burrow View this weekend. The setting is beautiful and tranquil, providing a private getaway with plenty to do. The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and with all the amenities you need for a short stay. The hot tub was the cherry on top! We loved watching sunrise and sunset from the hot tub each day. Thank you for a fantastic stay! We will definitely be back.

This was our first visit to Burrow View and it did not disappoint. The location is beautiful and looks over the valley with red kites circling above whilst we sat in the hot tub it really was idyllic.
The accommodation itself was clean and warm and well furnished. The bed was very comfortable and it was well laid out with the table by the windows so you could look at the scenery whilst having breakfast. We had a breakfast hamper which was lovely local produce and more than enough for the two of us for both mornings we were there.
We will definitely be returning.
