The views are amazing. Waking up to sheep not far was brilliant. The kids loved the hot tub. Just what we needed to get away from Birmingham for some relaxing time.

We stayed for a long weekend over the Bank Holiday and it was perfect. The location is absolutely stunning, with breathtaking views for miles. These were especially enjoyed whilst in the hot tub! The secure garden was perfect for our dog, making the stay as relaxing as possible knowing that he couldn’t get up to mischief. The owners had thought of absolutely everything, from salt and pepper to twinkly lights around the hot tub at night. The welcome gifts of daffodils, Welsh cakes, eggs and milk were a lovely surprise. The bed was very comfortable and the shower powerful and hot – both essentials when staying away!
We couldn’t thank the owners enough for making our stay so perfect.
Excellent little spot

Just returned from a fabulous stay in the horse lorry.
The lorry has been equipped to the very highest of standards, spacious and very cozy.
The outside area is incredible with stunning views all around, very tranquil and peaceful. Lovely to sit and relax in the hot tub, gazing out at the beautiful scenery.
Wonderful walks Right from your doorstep, where you can see wild ponies roaming.
Lovely food in the local pubs, particularly the Castle inn at Knuckles, which is dog friendly.
The host we’re very attentive answering any questions that we had, providing any extra equipment that re-required.
Perfect place to unwind !
We thoroughly recommend this property and definitely will be returning again.

Internally the accommodation was spotless and myself and my partner felt at home the minute we arrived! Our two dogs loved the enclosed outside space and the addition of the hot tub was a real bonus to relax and enjoy the far reaching views .

Wow! What a beautiful place!
Celebrated my 30th Birthday in the converted horse lorry and loved it! The views were incredible, especially from the hot tub. The accommodation was lovely – so modern, well styled, well equipped and super clean.
Thank you to Gareth & Rhian for the Birthday Hamper and decorations, added touches to make our time away even more special.

This place was so lovely. The setting and views were amazing and the cabin was well arranged and never felt small. The hot tub was a bonus, even in the colder weather.
We were able to cook most meals easily as the kitchen is well equipped. We mostly enjoyed our walks up the hill with our dog Blue, the views were stunning and the wild horses were pretty cool.
So much right on your doorstep staying at this place. We highly recommend this place and will hopefully be back!

What a beautiful property, inside and out. There has clearly been a lot of attention to detail and love put into making this place so special and cosy. Stunning views over the Radnorshire Hills and plenty of lovely walks to explore on the doorstep. We were looking for a property that was secluded and allowed us to relax and unwind, which we totally did – the hot tub was amazing and the outside fenced space was perfect for our dog to explore and enjoy too. We’d definitely love to return and I will definitely recommend this gem of a place to anyone. If you are thinking of booking, do it!
