  • "We have just had a fantastic family holiday here!"

    We were a party of 7, the place was very spacious and immaculate. The games room was fun and the large hot tub was popular all week. Nice large dining table, cosy living room, amazing kitchen and beautifully decorated bedrooms with very comfy beds, all en-suite. Every little thing has been thought of! Had a meal in the Severn Arms pub across the road which was delicious. We will definitely be coming here again.

  • "We had an amazing stay at the Old Post Office."

    We practically lived in the Games room and the Hot tub. The whole house is spacious, bright and well equipped. Each room has its own en-suite, and walk in wardrobe! The kitchen, living room and diner was another well used and loved space for us. The table in the kitchen was perfect for spending time together while cooking as well. The wii was a great hit with the kids as was the pool table and darts, we loved the magnetic ones for the smaller ones too. The place has so much, it’s only 10min to the nearest town where there is an Aldi/Tesco and local restaurants and pubs. There was so much thought put into the place and there’s something for everyone there! DVD’s, games, books, puzzles…hot tub, pool table and darts. We will be back! Highly recommend!

    Thank you for the lovely review We look forward to having you back to stay. Property Owner

  • "The Old Post Office was the perfect place to spend a family Christmas with fabulous festive decorations and lights adding to the 'home from home' atmosphere."

    The photos online did not do the property justice and it exceeded our expectations, being far more spacious than we imagined it might be. We particularly enjoyed the cosy living room with log fire, while the TV, kitchen and other facilities were all to a high standard. Its location is also excellent, being just minutes from Llandrindod and across the road from the welcoming Severn Arms Hotel. All in all we would definitely recommend this property.

  • "We were hesitant to book this property for few reasons like its right on road and it doesn't look big as per the pictures."

    But we went ahead and booked looking at other reviews and we don't regret taking the right decision. This property has an other entrance towards the side and it's massive and the images on the website don't do any justification for the property. The host has been really helpful and responsive. I would say if in doubt, go ahead and book it.

  • "The description and reviews of this accommodation meant we went with high expectations and we were not disappointed."

    We are a party of 4 adults, ranging from 86 to 22, who all need their own room and to find a property of this quality with an en-suite each at a price we could afford was amazing. We only have a small dog, so I was not sure the garden was 100% secure, but a a medium sized dog would be fine. The hot tub, games room and pub across the road added to the experience. We would recommend a stay.

  • "We enjoyed our stay, our only constructive criticism relates to the kitchen 1."

    The plinth below the dishwasher needs to be cut as when you open/close the dishwasher it bangs against it and sounds as if you are breaking it. 2. The knives really are not very nice to eat with, they are very thin and awkward to hold Lots of info available about the area and thoughtful bits left in the cottage for us thank you. Liked the games room but couldn’t work out how to put the heater on (it was pretty cold when we rented it). Plenty of room for a group of 8 to stay.

    Sorry about these issues, The plinth we knew about which has now been sorted. Will keep it in mind about the Knives, if it is brought up again we will get them changed. The heater in the games room is touch screen, which should come on Automatically but little fingers have broken the touch screen. Will get it replaced with a heater with basic controls .

    We were a family group of four adults and two dogs. There was everything we needed. The hot tub was brilliant and the games room was great evening entertainment. There was lots of walking in the area and plenty of routes from the house for lead walks for the dogs. The welcome pack was very much appreciated. We would definitely consider staying here again.

  • "The Old Post Office was a fantastic place to stay, we all thoroughly enjoyed our week here."

    There was plenty of room for our 7 adults including 4 bedrooms, each having their own ensuite, comfortable furniture for relaxing in and a separate, large dining area. The kitchen was large and extremely well equipped. Having the large utility room was very useful for storing supplies. Outside there was a large hot tub with patio furniture next to it, all under a wooden shelter - perfect if the weather isn't dry! The games room provided lots of fun too. I would highly recommend this lovely property.

    Thank you for the review. Property Owner

    There was plenty of space for cooking and socialising in the house, with the added bonus of the hot tub and games room (and a pub across the road). The welcome pack was very much appreciated and a great introduction to Welsh Cakes. Plenty of secure parking for our three cars and a great base to explore the region.

About the location

LLANDRINDOD WELLS

Builth Wells 7.6 miles; Hereford 41.3 miles

Llandrindod Wells is a lighthearted, friendly town situated in the county of Powys, within the historic boundaries of Radnorshire, Wales. There are some notable landmarks within the town, including architectural buildings in ornate styles dating from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Llandrindod Wells Victorian Festival, known locally as 'Victorian Week', takes place at the end of August, bringing many tourists to the lively town. 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. For all you bowling enthusiasts there is The Radnor Indoor Bowls Centre along with the Outdoor Bowling Club for an afternoon of local sports. If you fancy exploring some of the history around the town there is The Radnorshire Museum, The Rock Park & Heritage Centre and The National Cycle Museum, all for your discovery. The Thomas Jones Statue on Temple Gardens is also worth a visit as you stroll across the gardens. The town is situated in a very rural spot so there are lots of scenic walking opportunities; Beacon Hill is a nice 4 mile long trail whilst The Spa Walk offers gentle slopes and opportunity to try the waters at the Chalybeate Spring in Rock Park. Llandrindod Wells provides something for everyone and is a great place for a healthy break.
