"Absolutely amazing holiday, beautiful cottage and amazing surroundings."
Owners are amazing hosts even took part of our group out clay pigeon shooting. We loved it so much we stayed an extra 2 nights .
"A lovely cottage but the master bedroom bed is rather low."
We particularly enjoyed watching the birds on the feeder especially the woodpecker. Scrupulous maintenance of the hot tub.
"Me and my group of friends had a lovely long weekend stay at middle hivron."
Beds where comfy the living room and kitchen where clean and inviting. Rachel and Andy couldn’t do enough for us while we were there. Would 100% return. My group chat has also been singing middle hivrons praises
It is extremely comfortable with stunning views.The cottages has been carefully designed and lots of extras were included, in fact everything that you may need during your stay. Thank you!
"A really lovely property, very much enjoyed ourselves, beautiful views and very quiet and peaceful."
Views from the bedrooms were stunning.
"As a group of 6 adults and 1 dog, we enjoyed our week at Middle Hivron."
It had everything we needed and a large living room/kitchen which was great for gathering. Bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely, especially the master bedroom with ensuite. The hot tub and outdoor space was fantastic, although could benefit from some more outdoor seating. We used the hot tub every night and also used the pizza oven which was great! I would say that the photos taken on the listing are quite old and outdated, the kitchen/lounge doesn't look like that any more! The hosts were doing building work up at the farm during our stay - they did apologise for the inconvenience and gave us a lovely gift, but being woken up at 7.30am by tractors/diggers the one day wasn't really ideal. The garden could have been made more dog-proof - my little dog had to stay on the lead as she could have easily squeezed through some of the gaps in the fence. The house has a fly problem and we had to put up fly paper during our stay, felt a bit unhygienic cooking and eating with so many flies around. WiFi was also awful and pretty much unusable, so don't expect to use your phones/laptops much during your stay!
"Whilst the lodge was lovely its actually very dated in comparison to the pictures available on skyes cottages."
Was clean and comfortable but lots of little things that need fixing and a bad smell from the septic tank. Internet connection very poor so when trying to work whilst away this wasn't possible. Lovely views and eveything we needed in the lodge.
"Absolutely loved our stay at the cottage."
It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed and more. The location is fantastic and the hot tub/relaxing atmosphere was everything we were looking for
"Amazing!! Well equipped and everything had been thought of (nice touches) Friendly and helpful"
. Loved the location and the views were spectacular. Would definitely recommend and would stay again without hesitation. Thanks Rachel x
"Great house for a group!"
Lovely views, big enough for everyone to eat, sleep and sit comfortably. All the utensils you could need and just a lovely place to stay. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and fire place. Many thanks!

"The cabin is set in a beautiful location away from towns which was perfect for a peaceful weekend."
The cabin had everything we needed, great space and the hot tub was gorgeous to sit in looking at the stars. Would definitely book again.
"Truly amazing definitely coming back"
"First of all I would like to say that Rachel and Andy were great hosts, we had a really lovely holiday and the cottage was very comfortable, we cannot find anything negative to say about it."
The hot tub and the petanque piste provided us with great entertainment and the scenery is stunning. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

"This was an amazing family cottage holiday!"
We really loved our stay, loved all the beautiful views through the windows and the friendliness from the owners. We arrived early and were let in early alongside the fact the owners allowed us to have the dog over for a visit (which was a highlight for us). Thank you for the amazing time and for the amazing memories that have been made.
"We had a lovely time at Middle Hivron."
The house was comfortable and like a home from home during our stay. Beautiful surroundings that we enjoyed walking our dog through. Highly recommend!
"Never wanted to review a holiday more!"
Perfect little getaway for those needing a peaceful break. Cottage was well equipped (even for children & babies), clean & cosy. Books, games, leaflets and some DVD’s. Kitchen had tea, coffee and milk on arrival. We didn’t need to use it but noticed they had a swinging cot, travel cot, baby bath and Bumbo seat in the bathroom cupboard and plastic bowls and cups in the kitchen. The views from the bedrooms were of rolling hills, breathtakingly beautiful. Plenty of space for a party of 7. Hot Tub was a great treat after some long walks. Fab position for trips - Elan Valley, Judges Lodgings, Fish-pools and Water Break it’s Neck Waterfall. We travelled with grandparents and a young adult as well as our children aged 8 and 10 and everyone had an amazing time. Rachel, Andy and their family made the holiday extra special by allowing our children to get first hand experience with their chickens, sheep, horses and dogs - Andy even took us out with his Lurcher at night which was so special for the children as they got to see a Barn Owl and a really clear view of the Milky Way! His local knowledge is second to none. We received a card from the owners saying we’d been lovely guests and we’d always be welcome back which was a lovely touch. Will recommend to everyone we know and we’ll definitely be back!
"The owner provided various types of basic food supplies and fruit and other goodies that we didn't anticipate."
The house was much better equipped than we expected.
"We had a lovely time in Middle Hivron, we’ve just left and we want to go back already."
We’ve made so many memories and we loved every minute of it. The views were incredible and there was plenty of space for the 6 of us. There were many local walks, we went to Elan Valley and completed a 6 mile walk and saw some lovely scenery. The resources which were in the cottage were great, lots of little touches which were highly welcomed. Wish we were back here xx
"We had a great time, very relaxing and the accommodation was really well equipped."
The hot tub and boules area was well used! Beautiful views of the countryside. Would definitely recommend it.
"A great peaceful place to stay in comfortable surroundings and in a lovely part of the country."
Friendly helpful owners that were there if needed but otherwise gave us the space we required. Would definitely recommend.
"Had a great time, fantastic scenery and relaxing hot tub."
the owner was always helpful.
"Amazing cottage with plenty of space, friendly owner and all those welcome items (tea, coffee, flowers, etc) that really make a difference."
Wood burning hot tub takes a while to get going but amazing addition to this gorgeous home
"Had a brilliant time with my loved ones everything was perfect thank you"
"The Hospitality from the owners was especially good, lovely setting, fantastic place to stay"
"A lovely property in a quiet location with fantastic views from the rooms and balcony."
Excellent facilities for the eight of us (including baby) all on one floor. Fab welcome from the owners who were friendly and helpful. When we mentioned this break was our early Christmas celebration, they put up the Christmas tree and decs while we were out. Hot tub was a real fun bonus, even in December. Our two dogs were made to feel welcome and were also well catered for. Overall, a great place. Would return.
"Excellent place with everything you need and more."
Hosts very friendly and helpful, and kindly showed us around the lovely donkeys and horses at their place. The hot tub was clean and hot and fun. The heating is unusual, warmer at night than the morning, but the open fire was a boost . Scenery stunning, plenty of walks to do and places to see. Not great roads if you suffer car sickness
"We had a fantastic time here, the cottage was beautiful and spacious, and had everything we could have needed."
The views from the balcony were beautiful, it was lovely to enjoy a coffee in the morning whilst watching the horses roaming around. We would love to visit again and plan on doing so next year.
"Lovely holiday for a birthday."
Will probably be returning! I did leave my raincoat that holds sentimental value, who can I contact? Thanks.
"Me and my friends had a great weekend at the cottage celebrating my birthday!"
The cottage is really nicely furnished with amazing views from the front room and the bedrooms. Rachel was very helpful and friendly, especially giving us a few essentials upon arrival. We really loved going in the hot tub, where you can admire the stunning view of the hills. Would highly recommend - and thanks for a fab birthday weekend!
"Lovely accommodation in a beautiful location, the rescue horses nearby were a lovely surprise as well!"
"We had a wonderful holiday at Middle Hivron, our children loved the hot tub and playing in the grounds on an evening."
The owners of the farm were lovely and friendly and took the children to see their horses. The views from the lodge were fantastic. The lodge itself was like a home from home....great furnishings and really comfortable beds...the ensuite is lovely.
"The house had lovely views and was very well furnished."
We really enjoyed the hot tub at the end of the day and it heated up really quickly. The location is quite remote so you do have to drive every day but there were plenty of interesting places to visit. We especially enjoyed Elan Valley reservoirs and Powis Castle.
"Middle Hivron was absolutely amazing to stay in the owners had thought of absolutely everything never have I stayed in such a brilliantly prepared place before."
The views from the property are incredible, the area is lovely and the property has absolutely everything you could need as well as owners who would help with anything they could. Would definitely recommend to others and would definitely stay there again, thanks Alex
"Absolutely beautiful location, lovely hosts; a perfect little holiday cottage"
"Warm welcome from Rachel and Andy and loved the tea/ coffee / milk / bread / fruit on arrival."
They really had thought of everything with local maps and suggested activities. Wood burning hot tub was easy to use and Rachel provided the wood. Lovely to sit on the veranda and watch the hawks and red kites in the valley and general wonderful scenery. Excellent location as base for walking, e.g. Elan Valley . Local pub in Bleddfa now closed. Local roads not suitable for walking on due to the speed of the traffic and lots of bends. Local Forestry Commission Fishpools trail was great for a 90 min walk. Ordered a veg box in advance from Rhos Gardens www.rhosorganic.co.uk/ which was delivered to the cottage. Certainly one of the best cottages we'd stayed in. Will definitely be recommending this to our friends.
"Lovely relaxing & peaceful holiday, owners really nice & welcoming."
"This was our first visit to a Sykes cottage."
We will now be looking at booking another. Great service from booking to leaving the cottage. The family who owned the cottage were very helpful and friendly. The views from the hot tub were amazing. There isn’t much locally but there is lots to do within a 30 mins drive.,
"Had the most amazing stay with a group of friends celebrating my birthday."
A beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting. The perfect getaway!
"Rachel and Andy were very good and attentive."
We would recommend their property to others. We will go back when in the area.
"We were made to feel so welcome by the neighbouring farm who went above and beyond to make us and our children feel at home Which really did make the holiday special."
"What a perfect, relaxing weekend away with friends!"
Middle Hivron is situated with some stunning views, no light pollution so an evening in the hot tub is just as clear as could be. Plenty of places to walk the dogs and Rachael and her family were always around if we needed them. We had perfect weather which of course helped but we would definitively recommend and would go back! What a perfect weekend break! Thank you :)
"Great place in the countryside."
The owners could not have been more helpful - they were brilliant despite some small unexpected issues. These were all sorted out quickly and without question which was impressive and made us feel in safe hands. We will be back soon.
"Middle Hivron was a lovely property."
The owner, Rachel Holman, made our holiday extra special. She left fresh eggs, flowers and fruit for us, had decorated the house for Christmas and was always available for help.
