Easter Dog Friendly Break 4.8/5

We had a really enjoyable 3 night stay in Mountain View Pod, perfect for us as 2 adults with 2 dogs (one large, one small). The pod has everything you need for a short break. Fully kitted out kitchen including tea, coffee and milk. Bed & sofa were both very comfortable. Bathroom was clean and the shower was really powerful which was welcomed after long walks. Absolutely huge garden with amazing views and of course, a spacious hot tub. Just two minor comments from us re the garden; our sausage dog could escape under the gates. We found a large, heavy plank of wood behind the pod which we dragged across to block the gap. Not a major issue but we had to do this each time we wanted to go out in the car. Second slight annoyance was that the previous guests didn’t clean up after their dog. I felt compelled to clean this up as I didn’t want this to reflect badly on us, as respectful guests. The area was ideal for us. We wanted a break away in the middle of no where away from our usual, very hectic lives and this was just perfect. The local town was a 2 minute drive away which has everything you need but I wouldn’t fancy walking to it as (I think) the only way is to walk on the roadside down a fast, dark country road. Also great location if you’re wanting to find different places to walk, like us. Lots of to choose from. Our second time staying with Holiday Wales and it definitely won’t be our last. Highly recommend.

Amazing stay! 5/5

We had an incredible stay here our second stay first we stayed in a shepherds hut and this time we stayed in a Mountain View - it’s such an incredible and relaxing stay with Rhayder just a short drive away Definitely recommend

Lucy Horton | 17 March 2024

Absolutely loved it!! 5/5

I booked this stay to get my puppy away from the fireworks this year and it was the best decision I ever made. It was isolated enough to be away from the bangs but close enough to the town for anything we needed. The property was perfectly cosy and Pedro had the best time and had complete freedom in the large garden, the hot tub was an added bonus . Thank you for a wonderful stay, I’m already looking to book for the same time next year ??

Review for Mountain View 5/5

Lovely comfortable accommodation with beautiful views of the countryside. Safe enclosed garden for our dog. One of the double doors to the pod requires attention as the bolt was not secure at the top and needs repairing.

Sandra Humphreys | 18 June 2023

Second time staying 🙂 ! 5/5

My partner and I absolutely love coming here to stay. Customer service is great! Everything is just so perfect up there for a little get away! 100% recommend for a little romantic stay 🙂 10/10 !?? Thankyou

Billie Jo Lloyd | 24 March 2023

Amazing stay 5/5

We stayed here for 3 nights. The pod was was spotless when we arrived and to make the stay even more special it snowed the whole time we were there. The Hot Tub was on ready so constantly warm. The bed was so comfy I want to find out where they get their mattresses from. The shower was powerful. Even comes with a dishwasher Wonderful views and the walk into Rhayader is around 20-25 minutes. We will definitely be coming back… hopefully soon! We both agreed it’s been the most peaceful perfect stay we’ve ever had. Thankyou so much Holiday Wales for the great communication and experience
