  • "Salmon Cottage was just as advertised and exactly what we wanted."

    The grounds are beautiful and it so lovely to be able to sit and listen to the river Wye bubbling along and to be able to walk along our own private Stretch. Its not a luxury property, but is well equipped, clean and fab for a base to explore the area and sit and enjoy the scenery when you get back. The owners were delightful, brilliant with suggesting places to visit and even providing us with presents of Runner Beans and Cucumbers. The Elan Valley and the surrounding areas, were new to us and are beautiful and totally central to so many things. It allowed us to walk in the Mountains, around Reservoirs and be able to visit places like Hay on Wye, where we hired Kayaks for the afternoon. We will certainly be back.

  • "Lovely chalet in a fabulous setting."

    Rural but not isolated with other guests around. Chalet is basic but very comfortable (including the beds)and provides everything you need. Owners are very helpful and friendly. Would we stay here again; most definitely! Had a great week.

  • "Property in a beautiful location on a well maintained private estate with historic art connections."

    Accommodation more chalet than cottage but spacious, well-equiped and with the welcome addition of wi-fi. Beds were very comfortable and spotless. Downsides were proximity to a busy road and a couple of cleaning issues which were resolved by the owner. In addition thought that property needs a bit of updating to include double-glazing at least for the double bedroom.

  • "Very good. Hosts excellent."

    Always nervous when hosts are on site or near on site. No issues, they wre brilliant - very helpful but not intrusive in any way. We shall go there again.

  • "The cottage was better than expected."

    All the equipment was of a very good standard. Although no WiFii, which we knew wasn't available, the phones connected well. The grounds were beautiful as is the surrounding area. The road running alongside one side is busy, for a Welsh road, but not intrusive. The owners were very welcoming and friendly.

    The scenery was amazing and it was lovely to look out and watch the bird visitors and wander down the track to look at the sheep on the river bank

  • "The listing should advise on how much fishing there actually is, for example 1/2 mile or 1 mile etc."

    On Monday we wet to Pembrookshire for the day and got back around midnight hence we had a lie in, only to be woken up at 9am by the cement mixers going. We were unable to sit out on the patio furniture by the back door as we had builders going up and down all day and they were also going past the patio doors at the front all day. We also had builders vans going back and forth all week. The patio doors looked like they had been wiped down with a dirty rag, there were dirty and chipped cups in the cupboard, a wine glass that had a crack in, the blind in the bathroom was dirty in one corner and there were cobwebs on it. The table and chairs were a mishmash as the chairs were to small and to low down for the table. There was no headboard in the double room and my husband banged his head several times and we ended up in the single beds. They expected the guests to respect their privacy in the main house but they did not respect ours walking past with the dog at all times of the day. We feel that we have not had a proper holiday due to all of the intrusions that we have had to put up with and are not happy and feeling low.

    Left totally alone with no disturbance. Had a very warm welcome from unobtrusive hosts and the accommodation was exactly as described. Thoroughly recommend to anyone else for a relaxing break. Rhayader was very near with some good pubs!

    The chalet was warm, dry and very clean. The surroundings could not have been better, very well kept grounds with wonderful walks by the river. We will stay there again in the future. We all loved it, please pass our thanks on to the owners.
