    My wife and our two young kiddies stayed for a week in this lovely scenic part of mid Wales at the end of May. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by the owners Clive and Janice who made us feel more than welcome for our entire stay. The kids loved it and they even let our son Alfie ( 7 ) help out with the resident chickens every day of which he loved. The cottage was very clean and cosy and the log burner just made it even cosier in the evenings. It came equipped with everything you would need for a weeks stay and the bedrooms were all very cosy and comfortable. The cottage is situated in the middle of a valley on the bend of a road - which although not busy still has a few vehicles going past which to be honest you dont really notice after the first few hours and this never interfered with our sleep - what with busy family days out and mountain biking at some of the nearby dedicated mtb trail centres we always slept well. Our hosts Clive and Janice were always on hand to offer any advice and info about places to visit all over Wales. The nearest pub is around a mile away but you do have to walk along the road to reach it which would'nt usually be a problem but there is not always a footpath on some parts of that road and we did'nt fancy taking the kids along that road on foot. All in all we had a fantastic time and at the end of the week did not want to go home which is highly unusual for me anyway. I cant recommend this place enough, its a great place in a stunning location owned and run by the really friendly and helpful Clive and Janice.
