  • "Lovely spacious property with excellent facilities, four ensuite bedrooms was a real bonus with four 55yr + holidaying."

    There were a couple of maintenance snags, but we were told about them on arrival & they were being addressed. The owners were helpful & very friendly, yet unobtrusive, will definitely stay again if in the area.

  • "Wonderful place to stay, very welcoming owners with a lovely touch of a basket of goodies on arrival!"

    Could not fault the accommodation, with a large party the bonus of each room having their own en-suite was great! A well stocked kitchen with ample worktop space was like home from home. The bonus of a beautiful hot tub and games room gave the teenagers (and adults!!) hours of fun! Highly recommend anyone wanting to visit Wales to stay here, absolutely spotless and really homely! Thank you both, we will return!

  • "We spoke to Wayne about problem of heating in downstairs bedrooms and he already knew about it."

    He was very friendly and helpful and the welcome pack was second to none. We gave him a few suggestions which he seemed grateful for. Looking forward to going back there... especially as he's putting a games room in the garage. The grounds are pretty and peaceful and even tho there's a pubacross the rd and a bus stop outside the house it was very peaceful. Hot tub a big bonus. Ideally situated for Llandridnod Wells and it's wonderful Lake. Also Aldi and Tesco stores.
