  • "A lovely property in a stunning setting."

    The hosts are there if needed but in no way obtrusive. Definitely would recommend. A day out to Aberystwyth driving through the Elan Valley and via Devil’s bridge and Bwlch Nant Yr Arian forest visitor centre was delightful with amazing scenery.

  • "Clean and well appointed, friendly owners."

    even the weather was fine. lovely seeing the new lambs taking their first steps. Of an evening you cant see any lights from neighbors. Sitting in the hot tub and looking at the stars was an amazing and unforgettable experience. Its only a shame its so far to the nearest pub - but you cant have it both ways - Loved it and would defiantly come again

  • "We booked a small break (8 adults) to celebrate a birthday and cannot recommend Pentre Fawr enough!"

    It’s very rural which only added to the beautiful scenery and privacy for us. The cottage is beautiful, clean and the perfect place to relax in the hot tub under the stars. Value for money and will definitely be back, thank you so much again to the lovely owners x

  • "We had an absolutely fabulous time, cottage has everything you could ever wish for."

    And in such an idyllic place. Wonderful to sit outside with a brew and watch all the baby lamb's being so playful. Absolutely spotless clean when we arrived. Kitchen is brilliant for cooking (they have kitted it out fabulously) the seven if us has truly enjoyed every minute. It's a little far of the beaten track, but that's exactly what we wanted. And this cottage didn't disappoint. We will definitely be booking for next year xx big thankyou to the host's, the cottage is a huge credit to you, we loved it

  • "Hi, We had an amazing girly weekend, thank you so much for a gorgeous stay!"

    The house was clean, tidy and had everything we needed, a lovely little welcome pack was a nice touch :) Only downside was the hot tub, was lovely on night 1 but then after that it had an awful smell to it, not sure if anyone attended to clean/add chemicals as described. The shower also wouldnt turn to a normal temp and was very very hot so couldnt be used - owner was contacted and offered to come and fix but as we were leaving the next morning we didnt think it neccessary. Other than that a lovely stay and would recommend to anyone and visit again! Thank you :)

    There is lots of space and well laid out. We were very comfortable and everyone enjoyed the hot tub. Julie and Gareth had kindly given us goodies when we arrived and called in to check everything was ok. The setting is gorgeous. There is a pebbly “ beach” next to a stream a short walk from the house and kids ( large and small) enjoyed a welly paddle. Great situation for Llandrindod Wells , Rheidol Railway and the beautiful Elan Valley.

  • "A beautiful converted barn down a single track road through lovely secluded Welsh valleys and hills."

    3 holiday rentals in one place, but we couldn't hear the other guests at all, and when in the hot tub you couldn't be seen at all. Loads of lambs and sheep right outside and gorgeous views. Really spacious and well equipped, although some of the kitchen items really needed a clean. The surfaces and furniture were very well cleaned. Brief meeting with the owner who was lovely. Only saw the farmers once a day asode from that. A wonderful stay.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a stunning, peaceful location."

    It is very isolated which is wonderful for a quiet week but bear in mind it is a 40 minute round trip for a pint of milk so make sure you're stocked up. The owners are lovely, friendly people who don't impose on your privacy but they are there if you need them. We had everything we needed in the property, it has a well stocked kitchen and we easily catered for a family of six. full size dishwasher, washer and separate dryer and a huge cooker which is always appreciated for a larger family! My only complaint would be that the beds were a little too firm for us but that's a minor niggle and everything else was wonderful. The Elan valley was beautiful to visit, I'd recommend going after rainfall and we also enjoyed exploring the owners fields and the river and train crossing for a wander

    The old renovated barn was everything we needed and downstairs ideal for socialising. Beautiful views and comfortably isolated.

  • "I had booked this property for a surprise 30th birthday weekend for my friend for this weekend just gone."

    We wanted a place where we could host a girls weekend with food, drinks and fun. I can honestly say that this property blew us away! The views are absolutely breath taking, the property itself is so spacious, comfortable and homely - the pictures on the site really do not do it justice! The hot tub is a massive added bonus - again very spacious, fitting everyone in comfortably - again we were blown away on friday night, drinking in the hot tub with a sky full of stars overhead, it was truly perfect. The owners, Julie and Gareth, are also so welcoming. On arrival there was a welcome basket with their local produce which we thought was such a kind touch. Gareth came around to check on the hot tub and recommended some pubs for us to try (Have to also recommend "The Forest Inn" which was about 20 minutes drive from the property - food and service there was also outstanding!) They are very relaxed owners and even allowed us a later check out time due to the property being empty the next day. We would definitely recommend this property for any group of friends or family that wants to escape to the country and get totally lost in each others company and have a total break from the outside world. When we first arrived and realised there was no wifi, we were a bit unsure of being cut off from the outside world. However, we really enjoyed the break away from it all! And if you really needed to use your phone, the majority of windowsills picked up signal and outside on the decking area, there was plenty of signal for phone calls. Thank you Julie and Gareth for lending us your property for a weekend full of fun and memories - we definitely want to come back in the future!

There are some notable landmarks within the town, including architectural buildings in ornate styles dating from the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

Some people like to go-all-out and look the part in Victorian, Edwardian or other antique costumes, and many of the high-street shops dress their windows, in spirit of the event. There is a wide range of entertainment available in the town each year; hosted at The Albert Hall Theatre, Pavilion Mid Wales, which brings Live Music, Comedy and Theatre and Radnor Fringe Festival which is held within the Rock Park. The lake in Llandrindod Wells is part of the town's Victorian history and still remains a popular attraction today, it is a lovely location to bring a picnic with the family.
