  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cabin."

    It is situated in a beautiful place with a mountain view. It felt cosy and private. Hot tub was a massive bonus after returning from our days out. Finding a fresh bottle of milk, marshmallows, Welsh panckakes and wood for the fire was a beautiful gesture from a host. Loved fresh delicious eggs available to buy daily! The only criticism- sofabed needs an update- the sprungs on a matress feel really uncomfortable :( Other than that we had a great time and I would definitely recommend this cabin for anyone visiting Mid Wales.

  • "The accommodation was a good size, lovely area in general and close to amenities when needed."

    Nice sized holiday site neither too crowded or too remote like some, the lodge was clean and tidy. There were great facilities, shower and water pressure was good, bed was comfortable upstairs. The outdoor area was great and there’s plenty of room, the site is maintained very well and clean/tidy, great fresh eggs to purchase on site. We didn’t use the fire pit but lovely addition for families! My only negative feedback’s would be some of the sheep around the cabin looked in a sorry state which was hard to watch, the hot tub was set a but too high for such warm days so we couldn’t spend long in there and we struggled to find the bins after the second cattle grid behind a fence as written on the sheet on our way out early on the last morning, we ended up taking it with us. Would definitely return, great communication from Claire and amazing area to get some Astro photography due to the lack of light pollution in the evening.

  • "Absolutely faultless customer service!"

    Hosts were welcoming and helped us on many occasions throughout the stay but equally left us to enjoy the property in peace. The facilities in the property were excellent. The kitchen was adequately stocked, could do with a measuring jug in the kitchen is the only constructive addition to the kitchen we could suggest! Loved the welcome basket. The whole trip was superb. We would definitely return given half the chance!
