Long weekend in Kestrel Cottage By Guest Review

Reviewed on 02/05/2023

We booked the cottage to celebrate my 60th birthday.

The cottage was clean, comfortable beds and everything you needed from a torch and candles.

Check in was easy and Amy the manager was helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble.

Two bathrooms handy with 4 of us.

BBQ, Games room , swimming pool and Sauna all good and easy to use. The views were stunning and we woke every day to the sounds of sheep and birds it was so quite and remote / though 5 minutes off road.

We even played tennis and table tennis which got the competitive juices flowing.

The lake and stream were pretty to walk around and there was an abundance of information and walks to borrow and use.

We had a bbq overlooking the lake watching the sun go down which was a beautiful end to a perfect day.

We will be back as this is s complete switch off from busy lives as no WiFi and not much of a signal so you can really switch off completely from technology which was rather refreshing.

Great space for our family celebration 🎉

20 minutes from Builth Wells and reality!

Thank you for a fabulous stay.
