    • “Fantastic”

    • “The house is brilliant. Has everything you need for a good family getaway. The games rooms is great for kids and the views are breathtaking. O2 does not work here which was perfect for me. The wifi is good if you need to use it. But to be honest if your away why would you want to. Highly recommended. Give it a go”

    • “The house is quiet and very rural so the fact it is so well equipped is great. We were all adults and had two sensible but large dogs. There was lots to discover round and about as well as the hot tub and games room plus so many TVs that even in bad weather you wouldn't be bored. Huge circular dining table suitable for deaf guests too. The property is very well maintained and linens, China etc are good quality. Highly recommend. Lounge furniture not the most comfortable but dining area superb.”

    • “As a party of 12 which consisted of 10 adults we spent the Easter break at Grevodig. It was fantastic and very spacious. Plenty of room for all of us. Waking up to a beautiful view of pure country side was fantastic. The hot tub went down a treat after a long walk around the country side. The games room was also great with plenty of things to do such as snooker, pool, table tennis, air hockey and darts. A special thanks must go out to the owners. Mrs Lewis and her family Let us walk around their grounds and also get up lose and personal to new born lambs. A short 1.5 mile walk away is The Lion hotel. There we were greeted with open arms and made very welcome. We would definitely think of returning to the cottage in the new future. If you like the great outdoors and the sound of farm animals then book up!!”

    • “I went with a large group of friends to Grevodig, house was lovely and very big, plenty of space for all of us. As soon as we reported a problem the owner was down the same day. The decor around the house was gorgeous and it was very clean. Views were amazing of countryside hills, especially from the master bedroom and the hot tub. Although there is not much close by the local town (Llandrindod Wells) has some nice walks and is only approximatly 10 miles away. We went to the local pub The Lion Hotel, food was really good and a very reasonable price. We used the hot tub every day and the owner came down to check on it and clean it every few days. Couln't have asked for a better holiday or a more fantastic location at such a good price”

    • “We had a lovely stay at this amazing cottage. It definitely had the wow factor. The kitchen is more than perfect. The owners were very welcoming and we didn't arrive there until late on a Friday night but the owners still answered there phone to help direct us because we got lost in the dark and then came to welcome us. Alough the hot tub room hadn't been finished when we stayed it was still really nice and the hot tub was amazing! Would love to stay here again and the price was very very reasonable. Recommend to anyone. I have no bad things to say...”

    • “Great family cottage, with lots to do!”

    • “We stayed last week at Grevodig cottage, and we has such a great time. I traveled with my wife, adult children and the family dog. The cottage exceeded our expectations, it's in a lovely location, looking out over open countryside and rolling hills. The cottage is well equipped for a large group. The owners were very welcoming and stopped by on our first night to welcome us. It was a lovely touch. The cottage has a large games room with Pool Table, Table Tennis table, Air hockey table and Dart Board. This kept us all amused, along with the bog selection of games. There is also a lovely hot tub just outside overlooking the fields. There is so much to see and do in Mid Wales, make sure you check of the Kite Feeding Centre at Gigrin Farm - a spectacular site! The Lion Pub in Llanbister isn't far from the cottage and has lovely homecooked food and allows dogs. Overall the stay at Grevodig was great. we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend the cottage to friends and family. We hope to come back soon.”

    • “The property was high standard set in a beautiful location, with breath taking views.”

    Mrs Johnson, Willenhall, October 2015

    • “Lovely house with fantastic views. A really good hot tub set under cover with the front open to views is fantastic. Must not forget to mention the very, very comfortable beds and the owners are so helpful.”

    Mrs Goulding, Lichfield, June 2015

    • “A stunning property with stunning views, the hot tub and area could be used any time with the views. There was plenty of parking and the games room was well equipped.”

    Mrs O'connor, Spilsby, June 2015

    • “It was a truly exceptional property which made our trip away really special. The property is a one of a kind, the hot tub is amazing and the kitchen table made dinner times so social. We can't wait to go back.”

    Mrs Saighton, Market Harborough, May 2015

    • “The house was well equipped and in a fabulous location. The beds were very comfortable and there were loads of games, children's books, adult books and the kitchen was equipped for baking. A lot of thought is put into people's stay by the owners, ensuring there is something for everyone. We would definitely recommend to friends or revisit ourselves!”

    Mrs Lowe, Newark, April 2015

    • “The amazing location with panoramic far reaching views made for a very relaxing break. Grevodig is without doubt the best equipped large property we have stayed in - 2 toasters, 2 kettles, enough crockery and cutlery for many meals, plenty of cooking pans, etc. The round dining table is superb. When you stay here you need not bring any books, games, jigsaws, outdoor games, children's toys, DVDs etc. As the owner has thought of it all and brilliantly stocked up on these. Had very comfortable beds. Sitting in the hot tub any time of day is incredible as it is sheltered from weather and the views are outstanding. Games room in an integrated room was ideal and well used as had games for little ones as well as the adults. Will certainly try to return as wonderful holiday was had by all ages.”

    Mrs Johnson, Tenby, April 2015

    • “It was wonderful from start to finish. We hardly spent any time in the sitting room as the kitchen, games room and hot tub were the places to be. Brilliant.”

    Mrs Ward, Droitwich, February 2015

    • “We arranged a weekend away with friends for my 50th birthday and it didn't disappoint. The cottage made the day even more special as it was in an amazing setting and very clean and spacious. In fact the pictures don't do it justice.”

    Mrs Crane, Runcorn, November 2014

    • “Grevodig is a very well equipped family/friends home with excellent facilities for all weathers. We were blessed with sunshine all week but the games room would have been more used otherwise. The hot tub and TV facilities are excellent.”

    Mr Solly, Reading, September 2014
