The location was great for days out and days in the garden. The local area had all you needed with a friendly welcome in the village butchers and then pub being a particular highlight. Mark was helpful at the start and end of the stay and was available for any queries/questions. I would stay here again in a heartbeat as this really is a fantastic house that I wholeheartedly recommend. Reviewed by ChrisAug 2022 "We spent two wonderful weeks at Red House." On arrival we were met by Mark who went through a few things with us. The property was beautifully clean which was a lot different from the last couple of homes we have stayed in with cottages.com which were filthy. The house is set on a side of a hill with stunning views and at times, a lovely welcome breeze from the very hot but lovely weather we experienced and lovely neighbours of sheep and cows. We were provided with a lovey cake baked by a local baker which was scrumptious. The hot tub was lovely, sitting in it with a beautiful view. We knocked the temperature right down so we could cool off in it during the day but unfortunately due to the hot weather the water was pretty disgusting towards the end of the second week so if staying for two weeks in hot weather ask Mark to change the water after the first week. As Mark was away and as we had a hot tub at home, I tried to clear it with chemicals that he had but it was too far gone and we were not able to use it the last few days We usually do an online shop for when we get there but Tesco only had a late night slot and as we were staying for two weeks and wasn’t sure what would be provided, as this hadn’t been covered in other reviews, we decided to do a shop in Welshpool Tesco after we had visited the property: You have the option as well as Tesco of a Morrisons and also a Lidl. To help future guests obviously all hosts provide different things and it is always difficult to know what to take with you, we were provide with some tea bags, sugar, salt and pepper, together with a few dishwasher tablets, cleaning cloths, cleaning products and bin bags. So you will need to purchase/bring with you things like milk, cooking oil (although we did leave some there for the next guests) foil, cling film which I highly recommend to cover absolutely everything in the fridge/cupboards) condiments coffee etc I know someone mentioned about the knives and they are right they are not sharp whatsoever so I took some sharp knives with us, including a knife sharpener but I couldn’t sharpen what was there so definitely pack some decent knives and an extra frying pan, as there is only one smallish pan there, if you like a nice cooked breakfast but lots of other pots and pans there. There is also loads of plates, cutlery, mugs etc so we never run out of anything The beds and pilllows were really comfortable although one of the rooms does have a zip up bed and you can feel it is two single beds. Also abundance of towels which were large and lovely and soft Due to being on a farm with cattle and sheep and next to barns and hot weather, we were absolutely swamped with flies which get in everywhere including fridge and cupboards and was a real nuisance especially when trying to prepare food or eat. What I tended to do is shut all the doors about 3/4 hour before I was due to prepare food and spray the area with fly spray. You will still have some appear as we think they came down the chimney that is in the kitchen but a few is better than the hoards we had beforehand: We wasted about £30 on citronella items which was a waste of money so a fly swat, which are provided, and spray are the only things that work. However if eating outside the 6 citronella candles worked if you had the umbrella up, most days. It was nothing to do with the property it has been a bad year for flies and if you want the lovely views and animals then you have to take the rough with the smooth but just be warned and stock up before you go as we ended up wasting time whilst we were there tracking stuff down We used the local butches a lot which are lovely. We had a T bone and sirloin steak which was so tender/. They also do goat and barbecue stuff, eggs, limited veg etc. In the local town you have the choice of Spa or Londis which is just over the bridge. Londis we found were much better quality of vegetables. Spar vegetables were really quite poor at times There is so much to do in the area, especially if you are into nature, as I am: We saw Red kite, buzzards several times a day around the property. We did the steam train ride from the village which was also nice but recommended going first class as the seats are soooooooo comfortable otherwise you are sat on a wooden bench for 3 hours. We visited this Osprey centre and red kite feeding station which I highly recommend. We had a fantastic time and would definitely return for 3 weeks next time Reviewed by BeverleyJul 2022 "Well where do l start ?" All l can say is Great, Great, Great and Great. From the moment we drove up the driveway to Red House Farm l was smitten. I even told Mark the owner that if my lottery numbers came up l would be back to buy it off him….. at a price. The view from the house is to die for looking out towards Snowdonia, made even more like paradise when sat in the hot tub ( which l did every morning) The house is magnificent, extremely clean and luxurious. It is the perfect place to stay and recharge your batteries. There is lots to see and do locally including the Llanfair steam train Highly recommended and thanks to Mark and family for making us feel so welcome. Reviewed by KarenMay 2022 "This property is spectacular, just on arrival getting out the car seeing the view we didn’t care what the house was like as the pictures did not do the beauty of it justice!" But after an easy check in with Mark, meeting us as we arrived with the keys and a chat, we headed in and soon realised that the house was just as perfect. It was completely spotless and had everything we needed for the week (mugs, glasses, plates and saucepans ext), plus we had been given a Victoria sponge cake as a welcome gift so a cup of tea and a slice of that looking out over the view made for a great start. As a first holiday with 4 generations, including a 5 month old and two dogs, I was a little nervous but the house just what we needed. Having 3 bathrooms was brilliant made getting ready to go out a lot easier with the 6 of us! The enclosed garden put our minds at ease for the dogs being allowed to roam without worry. The hot tub was just the best added bonus, we made use of it everyday, Mark also came half way through our stay to check it for us and make sure it was all okay. The only thing I will say about this property is you’ll definitely need a car to get back from local village if you are not super fit, although it is only a very short distance the hill back up is a killer! The local shop had all the essentials and a bigger shop for everything else was a short 15 minute drive away. We had food in the Red Lion, it was a hidden gem, it looked like just a local drinking pub! The goat also did delicious food and was slightly more up market. The Black Lion was just a drinking pub but the locals in there are lovely all had a chat and told us recommendations of things to do in the area. On departure Mark was there emptying the hot up and giving it a clean and ready with bags of fresh linen to replace ours. He very kindly gave us extra time to get out the property as our 5 month old was still feeding so we hadn’t managed to get everything out and gone by 9am. I can’t recommend this property enough, we hope to come back again one day in the future!

The views and surroundings were stunning, especially in the evening and night from the hot tub. We used the hot tub everyday and never tired of the views. Mark , the owner, was very helpful and chatty filling us in on the local area and history. The house is stylishly decorated and very comfortable. Lovely log burner and lounge. Upon leaving we saw Mark completely draining and cleaning the hot tub for the next visitor. The whole family and dog had a great relaxing stay. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone. Reviewed by MattMar 2022 "Lovely large clean property." The road up would be challenging if there was snow but we were lucky in February! The hot tub was amazing with wonderful views. Every room was comfortable, easy to share with another family with two bathrooms either side of the house. Would definitely recommend. Thank you.

The house is in a beautiful rural setting with fabulous views, it’s very well presented and was just as described. I would definitely recommend it to those wanting a peaceful stress free holiday. Reviewed by PaulineSep 2021 "Positives: excellent location and most of the equipment/facilities were as promised." The hot tub is a real asset. Negatives: some of the kitchen utensils were poor - notably the knives in the wooden block - they were unbelievably blunt. We were only supplied with 4 dishwashing tablets, and the dishwashing clothes/towels/brushes wee inadequate. The beds are not king-sized ad one of our guests had to move beds as one of the beds gave him a very bad back after one night. Friday arrivals and departures are hopeless from a travelling perspective as we got caught up in rush hour traffic on both journeys (to and from the property).Expecting guests to leave by 9am on the departure day is a joke for groups of 6 or 8. Your note to guests on what we were expected to do in terms of leaving the property 'clean' is condescending and gives the impression that we ae doing you a favour by staying at your properties. We always leave any place we stay in for a holiday 'clean'. How you expect guests to do everything your list and still leave by 9am is a joke. We just about did it but it left a poor taste.

The breathtaking views that surround the property are simply stunning, you literally just sit back and breathe in the spectacular scenery, which even includes Snowdon. (We did this many times in the hot tub!) Welshpool is a short drive away and it’s a lovely little town with nice shops and cafes. We would highly recommend a day out at the British Ironworks Museum which is close by. But if you don’t mind the journey then definitely climb Snowdon we did and it was incredible. Difficult but brilliant!! I would recommend Red House Farm and we would love to go back again. My only criticism is one of the mattresses on one of the beds (my one) was quite lumpy and not very comfortable, which did effect our sleep. Reviewed by KatharineMay 2021 "This was a great stay!" I will definitely come back! Mark was a great host and very helpful. The location is beautiful and so many great views. We also really enjoyed the hot tub. Kitchen doesn't have a frying pan...other than that everything was perfect. 15 mins from the town centre. The dog also liked it too!

The bedrooms were well appointed with very comfortable beds, one twin and 3 king sized beds, one of which can be separated to two 2'6" beds. Three bedrooms face the garden and fields at the rear and one has wonderful valley views. The patio just outside the kitchen french doors was a great sun trap with generous wooden furniture and a bbq. The hot tub was greatly enjoyed by all and is sited near the lounge facing the valley. The house was beautifully clean and quite minimalist, we wondered about having hooks on the back of bedroom doors and possibly more drawers etc to unpack but Mark is really helpful and if you feel you need anything just ask as we did (a large saucepan arrived within an hour).
