  • "A wonderfully quiet place to spend at least a week exploring North and Central Wales."

    Nice and welcoming owners on a working farm in a tiny village surrounded on all sides by hills. During the day some disturbance by motorbikers testing their skills on the narrow and winding country lanes, but at night an absolutely quiet paradise. Lots of animals (chickens, cats, pheasants, birds), all of which are amazingly tame and trusting. If you sit out in the resting area around midnight to do all the stargazing you can't in a city/urban area, one of the cats will find you within minutes and demand cuddling.

    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.

    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.
