  • "Excellent accommodation for a dog friendly holiday."

    It was doggy heaven with relaxed atmosphere, other holiday makers with dogs, two dog fields and a small wood for walks, and - best of all - plenty of dog poo bins provided. After a long day walking and enjoying (us and the dogs!) the beautiful forests, mountains, waterfalls, streams and nature reserves in the surrounding area, we (the humans!) could relax in the glorious hot tub while the dogs slept on the enclosed decking safe from harm. Some people have complained that the decor in the cabins is a little tired but I found that no problem. I would say it was well-loved and used by holiday makers and their pets. If it had been too posh, I would have been worrying all holiday in case my dogs did something to spoil it (even though they behave like angels). The cabin had everything we needed. We'll definitely be back.

    We needed a quiet countryside place to base ourselves so that we could visit various parts of Wales and this met our expectations.

  • "Barn Owl was basic in it's kitchen provision."

    Shower was great. Beds were comfortable. Sofas in lounge area need to be dumped - they are totally sagging and without any comfortable support. Hot tub cover was split and full of water and nearly crippled my husband and I trying to get it on and off. We were advised another was on order but staff did find an old one which covered it although not a good fit. Two days later a new filter was fitted and the old one was very brown !! We did leave a whole day and a half early because apart from the bird nest in the corner of the roof and the dawn crying of babies wanting to be fed (this however was tolerable) What was not tolerable was the 130 plus flies we had to look at on the three fly papers we had to hang up. The worst bit was when they were bombarding you while in bed. Had enough by Wednesday and went home.

  • "The site is lovely and the grounds are well maintained."

    The cabins need updating, they are looking worn and sad, the woodwork is pealing badly. Furniture is very old and scruffy, paintings faded, a dripping tap, the remote didn't work very well, probably needs a new battery, the coffee table was wobbly, the dining chairs covers all need replacing. On the plus side, the bed was very very comfy, the bedding and towels excellent. The bathroom and kitchen were satisfactory. We enjoyed using the hot tub which was very clean and maintained every day. It badly needs a new cover and instructions about how to remove it as it was damaged. Lots of good points and the area was outstanding, scenery top marks, good pubs, people fantastic......and the ever spectacular Red Kites everywhere. We enjoyed our holiday and would recommend to friends.

    Well equipped with just about everything you need. Only critique, and it is very minor, could have done with an iron and board, but overall a wonderful staycation..
