Had the best time staying at this wonderful home!

Would highly recommend if you want a chilled, relaxed vibe in the Welsh countryside!
Peaceful with stunning views

We loved our stay in this large, spacious house that really had everything we needed, with a very well equipped and large kitchen, great dining space in the kitchen. Very clear instructions on housekeeping etc. I think the photos don’t do justice to the size and space available. The area is remote, quiet and peaceful with stunning views of the country side which is just what we needed. Our hosts were very helpful when needed.
Loved our stay!

Just arrived back home after a great week away in this fabulous accommodation. Property is full of character and the surroundings are picturesque. I literally hit the reset button and the whole week was very relaxing. The hot tub provided many hours of fun for the adults and children. Lin the owner was great and communication via email / WhatsApp was spot on.
For sure we would return and will be making recommendations.
Thank you Lin & James!!
Thank you Lin & James!! Right from the off, the whole experience has been wonderful. Flowers, prosecco, eggs and doggy treats as a welcome. Thanks for the tips about where to go. Enjoyed Rhayader, Elan Valley, Aberystwyth and some of the bigger towns North.
Barn 1 comfortably slept four adults, our two year old & dog with plenty of room during our 7-night stay. Great facilities. Hot tub fully prepped and also topped up regularly throughout our time. BBQ also came in handy.
Views across the valley hugely relaxing and walks from the barn ideal for walking Ozzy. Highlight for our Ethan was being allowed up in your tractor whilst owning several miniatures.
We will be back for sure. Thank you guys.
Highly recommend & will be using them again.
Fantastic spacious rooms, excellent facilities kept at a very high standard. Owners very thoughtful and pay attention to detail to make sure your stay is perfect. Highly recommend & will be using them again.
We have just come back from a long weekend and We loved it!
We have just come back from a long weekend and We loved it! The house is incredible, nestled beautifully in a very isolated part of Wales. The walks with the dogs were invigorating and inspiring as we roamed around the perimeter. Returning back to a dip in the hot tub, fabulous log fire and a few drinks. If you want to unplug and just get away from it all then this is the place for you. The house is stocked with everything you need and Lin gives you the warmest welcome. I have already recommended it to several friends and will be returning in the not so distant future!
Thank you for letting us stay.
Fabulous few days away in this beautiful isolated home. No phones or TV just good friends to relax with.
This is a perfect place to visit when you want to get away from everything.
The house is amazing and has everything and more, it’s beautiful.
Thank you for letting us stay.
Worth the 7hour drive from Scotland for sure.
We have just returned from a long weekend in this lovely cosy house(which we were lucky enough to win!!) which is set in the Welsh hillsides. Spacious and well equipped the house made for a very comfortable stay with incredible views and a hot tub to enjoy them from. The owners were warm and friendly and had left some lovely goodies for us and our dogs on arrival. We enjoyed some lovely walks from the house with the dogs and children who loved seeing the sheep and cows so close up! Worth the 7hour drive from Scotland for sure.
Would highly recommend.
Had a lovely week here with 5 dogs, 4 kids and 5 adults. Great house with everything you could possibly need inside. Would highly recommend.
Fab and immaculate cottage and a great place to relax.
