  • "The location was fantastic and tranquil, the cabin itself was also fantastic, had everything we needed and was clean and tidy with a lovely warm hot tub waiting when we arrived."

    Lovely waking up to the sound of sheep and then going out exploring. We can't fault anything, the owners provided contact numbers if anything was needed and left us alone which I personally like rather than a knock on the door a few times which we have had in the past.. We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend... Thank you to the owners for a pleasant relaxing week..

    Aw this is wonderful to read, thank you so much, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Ploony and will be returning. Thank you so much for coming. We really appreciate your kind words. Many thanks Take care. Lindsey and Darren. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cabin!"

    We loved everything about the setting and the cabin its self. It had everything we needed, iron, washing machine, hair dryer, well equipped kitchen, towels, games and good WiFi. We used the log burner which made the evenings even more cozy. The outside space was securely enclosed for our dog which meant we could relax and our dog had plenty of space. The cabin was warm and clean and we loved the bottle of wine which was left for us along with some essentials such as milk, tea, laundry detergent and dishwasher tablets. Beds were comfy and the hot tub was lovely with nice views over the farm and fields. We enjoyed watching the sheep and the wildlife from the patio. The cabin was a perfect base for exploring The Elan Valley , some nice pubs close by for food too. Arrival Instructions were clear and we had details on who to contact if we needed any help. Absolutely perfect break, will definitely book again! Thank You Lindsey

  • "We had a wonderfully relaxed and chilled 4 days at Ploony Cabin in October."

    Its well equipped and had everything we needed, the beds were very comfortable so a good night's sleep was easy and watching stars from the hot tub was amazing. The views are delightful and we had a few walks along the river (which was quite high due to the recent heavy rainfall). We also enjoyed trips to the Elan Valley reservoir for a scenic walk and watched the Red kites being fed at Gigrin Farm about 30 mins away. Overall we would highly recommend this property for a comfortable stay and a great base to explore the mid Wales countryside. Lindsey the owner was on hand and provided great support and instructions on how to get there. We'll be back but next time in the summer so we can try the bbq and pizza oven and sit in the garden

  • "An excellent and very spacious cabin in a truly idyllic rural situation which is bliss for those seeking exceptional tranquility and privacy."

    The magnificent panoramic farmland and woodland views, literally in every direction and from the hot tub ( ! ) are a delight to behold and put Ploony Hill Cabin in a league of it's own in terms of holiday accommodation locations. Ploony Hill Cabin does however lie three quarters of a mile off the road along a rough farm track which steepens at the end (vehicles with good ground clearance best suited) but lands you on a large level hard surface parking area directly in front of the cabin. Ample turning and parking space is provided. The cabin itself would feel more homely with some pictures on the walls for example whilst another dressing mirror somewhere and a caddy of some sort in the shower would be beneficial. One or two other minor improvements could also be made. Sadly the electric footrests on the settee were not operating either and looked as if they may have been like it for a while although the settees themselves were extremely comortable. The very generous bedrooms and lovely bath/shower room, which is the largest we've come across for some time, are accessed direct from the lounge area although we didn't find same to be disadvantageous. The cabin was pleasantly warm whilst we were there at the end of September and felt like it would be even in harsher weather conditions. Despite a few shortcomings we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Peaceful (sorry .... Ploony !) Hill Cabin and would go again. Be prepared however to drive a mile or two to places of interest including your nearest shop and local ! Steve and Cheryl

    Thank you for your review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and want to return. Many thanks Take care Lindsey and Darren Property Owner

  • "What can I say about Ploony Hill Cabin."

    .. for a start, the photos simply do not do the accommodation justice! Lindsey contacted me a couple of days before our visit to confirm access details and was on hand if we needed anything. The accommodation was incredibly clean, very well equipped and generally perfect. One huge positive was the canopy over the hot tub. Even when it was chucking it down with rain, we were able to sit out and enjoy the view. It was so peaceful and was wonderful to wake up to such beautiful views. The only 2 things we noted (and did mention this when we were leaving) it would be nice to have a little shelf of sorts in the shower and then other (is more a warning to other visitors than a comment) the road leading to the cabin is rather tricky so make sure you're in suitable vehicle. Loved every minute there and will definitely be returning!!

  • "The setting is beautiful!"

    Within a 200 acre farm with great views across the surrounding countryside. If you want to get away from it all, Ploony Hill Cabin offers a quiet idyllic retreat. We enjoyed the numerous short walks from the cabin with our two dogs. However, in my opinion the cabin itself is quite sterile. It is definitely clean, but offers the basic in comforts and I do feel it’s lacking in some touches that would enhance the feel of the cabin, such as additional home decorations. It is extremely sparse, without cushions on the couches or pictures on the walls etc. Maybe it is just me and the minimal interior would suit others. There was a DVD player, but no selection dvd’s offered. It was fortunate that we bring everything with us as there wasn’t any tea, coffee or milk available when we arrived for that all important cuppa after travelling. I will also have to mention the NUMEROUS reminders for us to clean the cabin! Okay, a booking confirmation with a request for you to hoover and leave the cabin as you found it or will be charged was acceptable, but an information booklet, a laminated sheet AND a picture framed reminder within the cabin, as well as an email sent a day before the end of our stay, in my opinion (again) is definitely too much!

    Thank you for coming to stay at Ploony. I’m sorry you felt the cabin wasn’t to your taste. We like to keep things minimal for cleanliness reasons as well as for ease of keeping the cabin clean as we enjoy being able to offer guests to bring their dogs or pets on holiday with them. The majority of guests leave the cabin as they found it which is all I ask. The emails etc that you have received do not come from myself, they are from sykes but I will contact them to understand what exactly they send to customers. I would hate to think guests felt hounded. As I state in my welcome pack, please message me if you have any questions or problems and il help if I can. Also when you spoke to Darren he would have happily explained to you that we only ask that the cabin is left as it’s found. Many thanks Lindsey. Property Owner

    Track to cabin definitely not to be attempted in a low-slung car! Wifi speed seemed to vary greatly depending on time of day but that there was any at all was amazing. A couple of small maintenance items need addressing - broken slab on edge of path to front door and the rusty concrete mixer in the next paddock didn’t add anything to the overall ambience but it is a farm so no big deal. Great to get away from it all with all the comforts of home and more.

  • "Cannot fault the location or cleanliness of the cabin."

    Situated in a beautiful location overlooking the valley and the cabin was spotless inside. However we have stayed at several Sykes cottages and this is the first instance where the owner hasn't taken the opportunity to check whether everything is ok, had we settled in, needed anything etc. Not a huge issue as we just got on with things, but surely just out of courtesy maybe a short 'hello' text would have been nice, if the owner felt they might have been intruding if they came up to the property. Unfortunately during our stay a glass was broken in the dishwasher, and because my partner is very conscientious she left a small note and some money to replace the glass and there hasn't even been a thank you from the owner yet. An amazing holiday cottage for the location and cleanliness but sadly let down by the attitude of the owner which came across as a bit uncaring. Surprising as we read other reviews before booking and the owners were praised for being so helpful and friendly.

    Hi Emma and Darren, I am so sorry you feel i have been uncaring to you during your stay. I did pop up to test the hot tub and check everything was ok on 3 occasions and unfortunately you were out on each occasion. I try to leave my guests in peace whilst on holiday. There is info in the welcome pack with all contact details for myself if guests wish to contact me. Many guest often message to say they have arrived safely, to which i respond as soon as i can. I really am sorry that i totally forgot to message you regarding the money for the broken glass. Fridays are very very busy for me and it slipped my mind when i finished cleaning. You really didnt need to pay for the glass but thank you very much for your honesty. Thank you for coming to stay at Ploony. Take care Lindsey Property Owner

    With fields all around you. We loved it. Had everything you need. Very comfortable. Jacuzzi was great. BBQ and pizza oven. Our 2 dogs loved it. You Can let them roam about outside as it's all fenced off. Some nice walks too. We went to lower fishpool forest which was amazing, and it's only a mile away. The only cons were the Wi-Fi was very slow but your out in the middle of nowhere so didn't care too much. The road upto the cabin isn't great. So takes a while to get to the cabin.. But you can enjoy all the lambs jumping about on the slow drive up which was lovely. And the Jacuzzi had loads of hairs stuck to the filter. On the last 2 days hundreds of flys came from nowhere and swarmed the cabin outside. Would definetley return and recommend. Loved the views sitting out having a coffee watching all the red kites swooping around. Owners are great and leave you to it.
