  • "Easy booking process via Sykes online; all went as stated."

    Pleasant, well presented cottage with lots of space for two in lovely area on working farm (cattle/sheep). Host Riahn and family very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Access to accommodation through farm yard but not a problem - plenty of parking space. Well located for exploring the area. A very peaceful, quiet spot with lovely views. A very short drive or 9/10 minute walk to Penybontfawr village, but no footpath for most of the walk and little grass verge in places. Small but well stocked shop in village. Village pub, The Station Inn, good pub food and very welcoming landlord/lady.

  • "Sykes did what I would expect - no more, no less."

    The cottage was superb and Rhian is the perfect host. It has everything you need and the location is perfect with great views from the cottage and the outdoor seating area. Slight mark down on comfort only because we would prefer a bigger bed but, other than that, ideal.

  • "Ideal location away from the tourist hot spots."

    Lovely and peaceful farm set on the hillside above the village with ideal views down the valley. Friendly and helpful owners... will definitely like to stay again just so we can try the home-made pies on offer.

  • "I was quite concerned about staying in any cottage in light of the current situation with Covid."

    But as soon as I spoke to the owner and stepped into the cottage I was happy. The house was spotless, sofas and especially the bed very comfortable. Clean crockery and cutlery. Nothing looked like it had been there for years (except the beautiful antique Welsh Dresser!) or bought from a second hand shop, it was obvious the owner had gone out of her way to make the cottage look good. We would definitely recommend.

    There is plenty of good walking country and attractive landscape. The steep driveway into the farmyard, from the main road, could be daunting for nervous drivers, but there is ample turning space in the farmyard, and parking adjacent to the holiday cottage. Wifi surprising good for such a rural area. The farm owners were welcoming and promptly dealt with all questions, etc. A most enjoyable stay.
