  • "The Orchard House was the perfect setting for our University reunion weekend and Kate, the owner, could not have been more welcoming and kind."

    The house was spotless, beautifully decorated and furnished with everything obviously carefully thought through. We were greeted with a generous hamper of local produce and Kate checked in with us over the weekend to ensure we had everything we needed. The hot tub was fabulous and the wood provided for the fire ample. The rooms were all beautifully decorated, the sheets and towels luxurious and soft. It was, in the words of Strictly, FAB-U-LOUS!! We would love to return. As busy women, with hectic working lives, the views from the large windows of the most stunning Autumn countryside immediately calmed and welcomed us. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will be back.

  • "Wow, what a place!"

    Orchard House is everything you need for a break from amazing views and walks to relaxing hot tubs and fire pit. Our stay we had 6 adults (friends) and an 18 month old. We had everything we needed and more. Provided were plenty of toys inside and outside for our daughter which was very much appreciated. We were greeted by a fantastic welcome hamper which everyone enjoyed and hot tub towels were provided. Not only was this a beautiful accommodation with amazing views the hosts were extremely friendly and were very welcoming and helpful. Thank you Kate for your amazing hospitality, we throughly enjoyed meeting you, your family and your farm. We would 100% stay here again. We will miss our morning cuppas talking to the sheep (with my daughter of course).

  • "It was my first time using Sykes holiday cottages and it happened by chance."

    I came across Sykes them when searching for a last minute family break. The profiles are great with loads of pictures to give you a good idea of the properties. It was really easy to book online and then since I have downloaded the App which is very user friendly. The App is great with places of interest local to the property. I have given a 5-star rating because I need to change the booking twice and the lady in customer services was on both occasions very helpful, professional and friendly. Everything you need under stressful circumstances. We are already looking to book our next break with Sykes.

    The house had everything we could have wished in a holiday let. Extremely clean. The selection of toys were fabulous for our toddler. He also loved seeing the sheep out of every window!! Outstanding views. Couldn't recommend enough. Very helpful owner.

  • "Such a lovely place to escape to for a holiday."

    Peaceful with lovely picture postcard views all the way to the Brecon Beacons on a clear day. Orchard House was spotlessly clean with lots of outdoor space for the children or to while away a few hours listening to birds singing and sheep bleating. The hot tub was a fantastic addition and enjoyed after a day out walking. The house had everything needed for a self catering break plus a wonderful hamper of local produce which even my fussy eaters tucked into. There are some lovely towns, gardens, parks and castles to visit, lots of walking routes. Utter bliss.

  • "Orchard House is everything you could ask for and more."

    There is so much thought put into your stay and such a personal warm touch added on arrival with a beautiful hamper full of local produce and goodies. I celebrated my 22nd birthday here with friends and the location, house and garden area made the weekend for us. The hosts were quick to respond throughout the booking experience and continued to be extremely helpful throughout the holiday. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who’s looking for a get away in the country side. If you enjoy being in the hot tub, sitting around the fire pit, enjoying a BBQ in the sun and finishing off around a log fire on an evening then this is the place for you. We will all most definitely be returning. Thank you !!!
