Overview of Mountain View, Underground House ..

If you are wanting to feel 'on top of the world' whilst vacating in Wales then this property really is quite literally this.

Mountain View is one of two brand new, immaculately presented Underground Houses with panoramic view of the Banwy Valley and is suitable for a couples getaway or a small family holiday.

The front facing view pans from Cadair Idris to the left across to Lake Vyrnwy and then right around to Rodney's Pillar to the right, and if you are into exploring, all of these places are well worth a visit!

The property itself nestled into the hillside really is delightful, the covered front porch leaves an excellent space to enjoy the panoramic views and also has outdoor storage for footwear with front door leading inside.

With an open plan space, Mountain View really does make full use of the space on offer. The full equipped kitchen comes complete with oven, two ring hob, fridge/ freezer, toaster & kettle with a breakfast bar for meal times.

If you wish to relax and watch your favourite series on the smart TV you can do this from the comfort of the delightful green sofa which not only adds a pop of colour but also doubles up as a sofa bed.

Further inside the property you will find the plush King size bed, the perfect place to get in an early night and gaze up at the stars through the spherical sky light.

In the bathroom you will find a walk in shower, wash basin, flushing WC & heated towel rail.

Impressed by the interior? Head outside and you will find a family size private hot tub, this really is the perfect place to take in the incredible view, and better still? It's completely undercover so you can make full use of this in all weathers! Outside there is also outdoor furniture, where better for alfresco dining!

This well-appointed, quirky property is ideally situated as a base to explore all of this beautiful area but there's a very good chance that you will not feel the need to stray very far. With hares looping over the flowery turf, red kites wheeling overhead and the only sound to be heard is the bubbling sound of the skylark, Hilltop Holidays is ideal for relaxing and recharging the batteries. If you want peace or adventure, activity or tranquillity, Hilltop Holidays provides the perfect location for a deeply relaxing getaway.

Looking for a stay for up to 8 people? Check out The Valley View, a neighbouring Underground House!

The best Easter break 5/5

Absolutely nothing negative to say. Everything is immaculate, the hot tub being undercover is perfect so you can use it regardles of the weather. The best weekend away to switch off and recharge and the views are stunning!

Pleasant for a couples short break 3.7/5

First impressions of The Mountain View were positive. Very clean and a bottle of fizz and Welsh cakes on arrival. We visited with our toddler and unfortunately found the space very cramped with little to no storage. This getaway would be ideal for a couples short stay - but would not recommend more than 2 people. The accommodation itself is also slightly cut off and there are no walks available without having to get in your car. Not great for holidaymakers wanting to ditch the car and explore the surrounding area on foot. Otherwise, a lovely little space with the added novelty of staying in a hobbit hole.

A great stay! 5/5

We had a lovely stay in the Mountain View for my daughter’s 13th birthday. The accommodation is very comfortable and the hot tub is great! The views are absolutely amazing!!

Laura Lodge | 25 March 2024

Perfect getaway 4.8/5

This stunning underground hobbit home was perfect for our break. It's in a very peaceful spot with outstanding views. Very modern inside and spotless. The covered hot tub was the big draw for us with our typical welsh weather. Perfect base for anyone who enjoys walking plus only a short drive from other lovely places. We would definitely stay here again to unwind.

Amazing 5/5

Amazing few nights away at mountain view. Clean, comfortable and relaxing from start to finish......

Paul Collins | 11 January 2024

Quiet and stunning 5/5

What a place! Beautiful views and quiet. Greeted with a lovely bottle, biscuits and a personalised note. Was great to be given a guide of amenities. Shame the pubs were not serving food this time of year but there was plenty to do locally and further afield. Sky light at night is absolutely stunning. Hot tub positioned really well to overlook stunning views.

Birthday Weekend 5/5

It was the most perfect weekend away for my birthday. The owners have thought of everything and it really made my birthday so special. A must must must go to! We will definitely be back!!

Natasha Holgate | 13 November 2023

Lovely couple of days away from everything. 4.3/5

We had a lovely couple of days away from everything, just what we needed. Location and views were perfect. Accommodation was exactly as described and a lovely welcome gift. If you want to get away from the world and recharge your batteries Mountain View is perfect as it is so beautiful and peaceful. The hot tub was great to relax in and look at the view.

Everything & More!!! If you havent already, get booking!!!! 4.8/5

Wow. Where do we start!!! I booked Mountain View as me and my girlfriend are both HUGE hobbit/Lotr fans and have always dreamed of waking up to views similar to that of the Shire…. And Mountain View ticks all the boxes! First of all, the facilities are everything you need and more! Mountain View (& Valley View) come with a seating area that doubles up as a sofa bed, so even as a couple we enjoyed setting the sofa bed up for movie nights!! There are bar stools near the counter which we used to eat both first and second breakfast (IYKYK), which strategically slide under the counter to create a more open floorplan. The kitchen was kitted with everything you need to create some amazing meals, and hilltop holidays provide informative booklets so you know how to use the oven and hob! The kitchen sink tap is a bit strong so it does splash up onto the counter if you arent careful but its perfect once you find the perfect stream! Hidden inside the foot stool were some colouring books and crayons which i thought was a nice touch for those who may have young children with them! The bed area was so snug and cosy! With the most perfect skylight (which was perfect both with the sun and rain as the noise was amazing!) Theres a little light at the end of the bed which provides a nice light to fall asleep too! The bed also comes equipped with a bluetooth speaker (which filters throughout the whole home) which you can only hear inside the hut. Theres also 2 plug sockets and 2 seperate USB Ports! Alongside the bed is a hidden storage area which houses a broom and extra duvet which is perfect. The bathroom is everything, i wish there was a slightly bigger mirror, but other than that it is packed with everything you need! The shower has lights in it which i thought was so high-end and theres also a heated towel rail and underfloor heating! The hot tub was… something else… wow! We spent the majority of our time in here as the comfort mixed with the views was a dream come true! We fell in love from the moment we arrived and even extended our stay from 2 nights to 4! We will definitely be returning and will recommend hilltop holidays & Mountain View to anybody and everybody!!!

Incredible Stay 5/5

I cannot recommend Mountain View enough. From wonderful hosts, breathtaking views, spotlessly clean and everything you could need, it was just magical! The town has a fantastic butchers and all within easy distance. We will definitely be coming back, as soon as we can! Thank you Richard & Sylvia for letting us share a little piece of heaven!

Charlotte Banks | 11 September 2023

An amazing stay! 5/5

Thank you for such an amazing stay at Mountain View. We were welcomed with incredible views, a bubbling hot tub, Welsh cakes and bubbly! The hobbit hole had everything we could of needed and it was spotless! We will be back.

Gemma Lee | 12 August 2023

Idyllic perfection a break like no other 5/5

From the very thoughtful welcome with bubbly and Welsh cakes to the spotless quirky and just perfect hobbit house, we knew this was a great choice. Nothing can beat the view from the window (or top quality hot tub) we have just had 6 peaceful days here and can't wait to return. Everything is well thought out and well equipped. It is the most amazing way to just switch off for a few days. You can hook up your music to the inbuilt Bluetooth speakers and just relax. There are just 2 hobbit houses here which are perfectly positioned so you don't even know the other is there and both have absolutely stunning views. The hosts were not far if needed

Giuseppe Palumbo | 09 August 2023

Stunning Experience 5/5

Amazing from start to finish, place has spectacular views and was spotless. Short drives away from amenities lovely place for fresh walks in the morning and the view from the hot tub in the evening we could not have asked for a better experience. Would definitely recommend and will be returning soon!

Adam Kost | 31 July 2023

What a place to stay!! 5/5

The hobbit house was an incredible place to stay, from location and local places to go and visit, it truly was an experience i'd recommend to anybody. The place itself is tucked away so you feel peaceful and could truly relax in the evenings with an amazing view outside, with plenty of places to go and visit and activities to go and do within the local areas.

Alexander Zerbino | 25 July 2023

Lovely views 4.5/5

Well it was a lovely stay , views was stunning very peaceful… there’s a couple of shops and pubs and a chippy and in the village. We climbed Snowden it was a little far out to travel there . Blind needed on skylight !

Adam Ollier | 03 July 2023

Excellent weekend escape 5/5

Great location with amazing views! Mountain View was exceptionally clean and couldn’t find a fault with the hobbit hole! 10/10 would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing, peaceful weekend break! Loved the hot tub area and the wild grass surrounding the property!

Matthew Clarke | 30 May 2023

Lovely location 5/5

It's not very often you find a purpose built location that has been completed with pride in their work. Everything was completed to a high standard, lovely location with fantastic views. The only thing that was a draw back for us was the privacy during the dark. But due to the location and so far out the way it was soon forgotten about. Hot tub was fantastic quality as well, and the built in bluetooth inside was a nice touch. Well worth the money.
