  • "We have just returned from a lovely week at The Alders."

    Beautufu bungalow/cottage in a peaceful location. Spotlessly clean and very homely. Equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lovely places to visit around the area too. Would highly recommend this letting to everyone. You won’t be disappointed at all. Our grandson and furry friend loved the freedom of the garden and was totally safe as it is all enclosed. Elaine was also very very helpful and answered a message quickly if we needed to know anything. All in all fabulous holiday, fabulous cottage and would highly recommend it

  • "This was our second visit to The Alders this year."

    It was really lovely to be back and it now seems like our second home. Elaine really provides all one needs and is always available if needed. The town of Llanfyllin was fully open this time, so we were able to enjoy eating out in very pleasant and friendly surroundings. The fact that this was our second visit and will return again speaks for itself.

    Absolutely spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need. Great size for families (we were 4 adults and 2 older children). The garden is beautiful and the location is idyllic. Will definitely recommend and look to book again

  • "We had a great week at The Alders."

    The cottage is very well equipped and in an idyllic location. Lots of great walks, as well as having Lake Vyrnwy nearby. The only sounds were the sheep in the field, birds and the church bells. The garden is beautiful and dog safe. We would love to stay again.

    Lovely peaceful location and within walking distance to the village that has a pub, chippy, butchers and Spar which has everything you need.

  • "The house was perfect."

    Lovely location, had everything you could want and the owner was great - nothing was too much trouble and she would go above and beyond to try and accommodate you. There are many places to eat just a short walk into the village and the beach was only just over an hour away. The only negative (which is our problem not the house), is if you’ve got a small dog or a dog prepared to jump a 3-4ft fence then really you need to keep a dog on a lead in the garden. Ours is naughty and tried to escape on a couple of occasions, and there are lots of lovely trees and bushes dotted around so you can’t keep an eye on them very easily.

  • "Lovely Tranquil Setting."

    A delightful bungalow, with lovely outlook. Warm, comfortable, exceptionally clean and well appointed. Very easy short walk into the small and friendly town. The owner was very helpful and close by if you needed any help. A great place to stay.

  • "What a fantastic cottage, it really ticked all the boxes and more."

    It’s quiet, comfortable, and thoroughly modern. On the doorstep of the village but without any hustle and bustle. Very cosy with the wood burner going in the evening. From the cottage there are many fantastic walks and I heartily recommend taking a hike up to the Lonely Tree and down around the river valley. The local butcher supplied us some amazing produce allowing me to cook one of the best Sunday Roasts I’ve ever managed and his prices were very good too. There’s also fresh garden produce readily available, we picked the right time of year as many local gardeners had harvested their crops and were selling or giving away excess so we had a lot of fruit and vegetables given to us. It really was a fantastic break and we are already looking to come back when time allows us.

  • "Good basic accommodation, with everything you want for a break in Wales."

    Property is an easy walk into Llanfyllin, with pubs restaurants all open and adhering to Covid procedures. Weather was exceptional, not a drop of rain all week a true Indian summer. We visited Lake Vyrnwy, a must scenery is epic, Lake Bala was worth a visit, the drive there through magnificent scenery is an experience not forgotten in a while. Powys castle gardens and Welshpool were great as well. The Llanfyllin workhouse is interesting (book before) you visit. Plenty of walks round and about, take your walking boots, very scenic. We will definitely return to wales again. Owners are friendly and helpful.

  • "Lovely Cottage in a wonderful spot."

    Plenty to see locally and further afield. Beautifully clean with everything we needed. We had sunsets every night and the peace and quiet was just what we all needed. The village of Llanfyllin itself has everything you need for day to day shopping and Welshpool, with its larger shops, is a short scenic drive away. We found the village to be very friendly and welcoming.
