  • "Stunning property & views , so peaceful We noticed when we arrived that the floors weren’t cleaned properly & the hot tub needed a really good clean out as you could feel the dirt when you got in, as we were there for a week the hot tub should have been treated whilst we were there as by day 4 every morning it had a ring of dirt around the side."

    We also noticed parts of the house had damage/windows wouldn’t shut properly All in all the house was what we wanted to celebrate a week away with the family for my 30th birthday. Not much too do local but if your happy to drive over an hour it’s lovely

  • "We had a lovely week here as a family."

    No problems with the cottage at all. Had all we needed. Would be good to have more hooks around to hang things, like coats, towels, dressing gowns etc and shelving in the showers. But a great week in beautiful surroundings with lots of beautiful places to visit.

  • "A beautiful house with everything you need to have a comfortable and fun stay."

    The garden with beautiful views and hot tub made it really special. The games room was also nice to have. Would like to return again.

  • "The outside space at this cottage is faultless, large enclosed garden and lovely hot tub."

    It is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, the inside really lets it down. Although it is spacious, it is very tired in some parts and really needs to be tidied up and thoroughly cleaned. There is plaster peeling off the walls in the kitchen and the kitchen is very grubby, particularly the floor, there was broken glass on the kitchen floor when we arrived, possibly from a beer/wine bottle but not great with kids and dogs. There were also broken utensils, like the can opener and the knives were either missing rusty or dirty. The most off putting thing is that there are strips of fly catchers hanging from the ceilings throughout the property, full of flies and the one above the dining table was so full that flies were actually dropping onto the table. The upstairs is better, nice bed linen and comfortable beds but again things are broken. It also states that towels are provided but the majority of these are hand towels. There were not enough bath towels for us all. We go away with another family in Wales every year and this is the most expensive so far, we have stayed in cheaper properties that have been cleaner and better equipped, so overall just feel disappointed as the property could be easily improved to a better standard with some upgrades and maintenance.

  • "We stayed in February and the cottage and its surroundings are absolutely beautiful, the beds were like sleeping on clouds."

    The cottage has everything you need for a weeks stay and to facilitate cooking etc. The garden is beautiful and a large size, the only downside for us was the dog could escape through the hedge by the front gate but the rest is very enclosed. Would definitely recommend others stay but you would need your dog to be very good as they cannot go upstairs which can be a challenge as the stair way is too wide to put up a safety gate to stop them. Lovely stay, so peaceful and quiet. I would definitely book to go here again

    Thank you for your feedback. We are working on getting a stair gate but as you are aware it is very difficult as it so wide. However, there is a door from the lounge and from the dining room so stairs can be shut off at all times. So dogs or children can be stopped going upstairs by using the doors. Once again thank you for the feedback and we hope you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    They were very helpful when needed and they even decorated the house with birthday banners and balloons as a request for a 30th birthday. The location was great for some fab days out and the house was spacious with plenty to keep us entertained. The whole family would stay again as they all loved it. Thank you.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at the cottage, the facilities were great and we had everything we needed for our time there."

    The welcome essentials were much appreciated! The cottage was always warm and cosy, the games room was well used by adults and children and provided hours of fun! My only negative comment would be that it isn't advertised as being a semi-detatched property. We only found out on the booking confirmation. This wasn't a problem but we would have preferred a detatched property -with so many people you don't want to be thinking about disturbing the neighbours! Saying that, we would still go back in a heartbeat!

  • "A beautiful cottage with tranquil surrounding views."

    Upon entering, it was warm and inviting. There were thoughtful gifts of bread, milk, and a lemon cake waiting for us too. We immediately felt at home and had plenty of space for us all to enjoy. Some areas of the cottage do require some TLC and attention. It's also worth noting that pets aren't allowed on the furniture or upstairs. This isn't mentioned in the description but is in the handbook upon arrival and may be helpful information to others looking to book. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bodaioch Cottage and would happily stay again.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your review, feedback is extremely important to us and helps us make any required changes in order to make any future stays for yourself more comfortable. We look forward to welcoming you back to Bodaioch Cottage. Property Owner

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your review, feedback is extremely important to us and helps us make any required changes in order to make any future stays for yourself more comfortable.

  • "Really lovely cottage in a beautiful part of Wales."

    Lovely private garden and secure for our dog. We did have a few issues which were rectified immediately when we raised them with the owners. We feel the information pack could do with an update, with more instructions for the cooker, dishwasher and tv. The games room was a great hit with the grandchildren and there was plenty of space in the property for our large family. A great time was had by all. Thank you

  • "Stayed at the cottage for a surprise for my partners birthday with his parents, siblings and their partners (and dog)."

    The cottage was very easy to find and was better than we had all expected! It was lovely and spacious and very clean and the garden/ garden furniture and hot tub was an especially big hit with everyone as we were so lucky with the weather! The dining room and kitchen was big enough for us all comfortably cook and eat and we really felt at home. We also really enjoyed using the games room too! Having come from a busy city to be able to sit in such a peaceful garden with sheep grazing in the field next to it was just amazing. Communication with Sam was brilliant regarding getting the keys and checking in/out. The little touches like welcome cake and bread was also fabulous! We all had such a brilliant weekend, can't fault it! We would all definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family and would love to return!

We did a lovely circular walk from the house in to the village and back by the river. Owners are contactable if needed, and really helpful.

Nestled in an extremely tranquil location, Bodaloch Cottage is a semi detached property offering a wonderful escape for a family or group of friends seeking a relaxing pursuit.

Boasting a characterful interior, with its countryside views, this calming retreat is a lovely space to call home while exploring the scenic splendour of Mid Wales.

Enter into the spacious lounge, complete with an electric fire and sumptuous arrangement of seating, giving you chance to unwind after a day of walking.

Carry the conversion into the kitchen where the chef of the group can get to grips with all the appliances, the main one being the AGA range cooker, while in the adjacent room is a large dining table where family mealtimes can be enjoyed.

Move upstairs to discover the bedrooms, including the master with super-king-size bed and en-suite shower, boasting a real sense of character with a curved ceiling beam that spans across the length of the room.

There is also a king-size with en-suite bathroom, a triple with three singles and a double with en-suite shower, each well-furnished and providing sumptuous places of rest.

The wonder of the property continues outside, with a hot tub sitting on the lawned area, you can sit here and truly soak in your countryside settings, with the farmer’s fields creating a calming essence to your tranquil retreat.

The local area is extremely idyllic, with the village of Trefeglwys hosting a friendly pub where you can replenish with a tasty lunch following an afternoon ramble, while a greater selection of amenities can be found in Newtown, including a range of attractions such as an art gallery, museums and the Theatr Hafren which hosts a range of shows from comedies to operas, there’s something for every taste!

Those looking to brush up on local history can visit the ruins of Norman Mott and Bailey Castle in Montgomery, the Grade I gardens at Cregynog Hall and also the spectacle of Powis Castle and gardens, where you might even spot Prince Charles.

If you fancy a day by the coast, head to the market town of Aberystwyth, where you can stroll along the promenade whilst tucking into a portion of fish and chips, before reaching the Constitution Hall, offering the best views of the town.

For a charming getaway to Mid Wales, consider Bodaloch Cottage.
