  • "Great cottage, hot tub was great treat!"

    Occasional cars go past on the road just outside and bathrooms are small, but overall we had a lovely stay. Would recommend.

  • "This is a cottage of 2 halves, on one hand it’s one of the most well equipped , homely place I’ve ever stayed literally Almost everything we needed was provided for including a tumble dryer."

    The bathrooms are far too small In the ensuite there is a 10’ space between the sink and shower enclosure and the shower has no facility to put any shampoo etc. The main bathroom is also tiny with an over bath shower the bath gets slippery so take a bath mat if you have kids or mobility issues. I think the cottage would work better if the small bedroom upstairs was turned into a bathroom especially considering having a hot tub equals more showers. The kitchen seemed clean enough but the cottage on inspection was very dusty and hairy. The smell of dog was evident from the moment we entered and the sofas also smelt of dog, this is more down to the dog owners allowing there pets On the furniture. Overall the cottage was homely and the hot tub was a great bonus but the shower situation spoiled the experience.

  • "The nicest place we've stayed."

    Love the area. Hot tub was great. Cottage was well appointed and lovely and clean. TV signal wasn't great in bad weather. Lots of free firewood. Owners very friendly and helpful.

    Very lovely cottage with the added bonus of a private mini gym and a hot tub, very well placed for a very relaxing holiday, tranquil setting with beautiful scenery as far as the eye could see, about a mile and a half away from shops, an absolute must consider for any family looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life in a beautiful cottage very well presented

  • "Brilliant location for a getaway and the cottage was lovely and clean."

    It was well maintained everything worked as it should. Overall very happy with the service and quality of product. One significant downside was that the hot tub (definitely it’s USP) was not up to temperature for the first evening and when your only staying for two this made quite a difference. It was stated in the handbook that it should be ready 8 hours after it had been cleaned. Even eight hours after we arrived 11:30 it was still not warm enough to use. Very disappointing on this side.

    We really enjoyed it. Only down for us were the bathrooms were small. And the busy road outside. But apart from that everything was spot on we would recommend to friends and family. The hot tub is a really nice touch..

    .clean comfy and well equipped. Hot tub is a great addition and makes for a very relaxing break...especially when weather not so good. Good location and central so a great base to see everything on offer in this beautiful part of the UK.

    ..... the cottage is beautifully presented. The only thing missing was a hair dryer !!!! Thank you so much to everyone who had worked hard to make our stay just perfect. We wish them good luck for their future success.

  • "Had a fabulous time at rock cottage."

    Comfortable, clean and very homely. The hot tub was amazing and great at the end of the day. The surroundings are beautiful and we found apart from the farm traffic it was peaceful apart from the noise from the copious amounts of wildlife. Plenty excellent books to read and the wood burner made a lovely added bonus. Lots of interesting things to see and do locally. Ideal base to visit lots of wonderful attractions. Space centre, break neck falls and our favourite was Hampton Court Castle. Lots of great places to eat as well. The village of Presteigne is 5 mins away and has all you need. Can highly recommend this delightful well presented cottage. Dog safe too. Thank you.

  • "Lovely cottage in a lovely quiet setting."

    It's about a mile or so from the village, but this wasn't a problem. The decor in the cottage was lovely, although we did find the lounge and bathrooms a little small for a cottage that can sleep up to 7 people. The beds in the downstairs bedroom were rather uncomfortable, hence the comfort rating being a

    Really great to relax in the hot tub at the end of the day,the only drawback was there is nowhere to play with the dog due to the gravel

  • "It was in a good location; quiet and had wonderful views."

    Just close enough to the Royal Welsh Show to commute to and from the Show ground each day. Would use the accommodation again; either for work with colleagues or as a holiday base with the family.

  • "The cottage was lovely though felt very remote."

    I wasn’t able to walk the dogs as the roads were very busy outside the cottage. The owners did try their best to help when the washing machine didn’t work but it wasn’t the end of the world. I’d like to pick the cottage up and put it in a village / town. They have made a fab job renovating it though The bathroom & ensuite are very small . I would say it accommodates 4 or 5 well but not really 7 as limited seating in the living room.
