  • "The most relaxing and scenic location!"

    ! The fox den was really modern and came equipped with everything you would need for a self catered holiday and more!! On arrival we found complimentary snacks and drinks in the fridge which was an extremely thoughtful and generous touch. The cabin and hot tub were incredibly clean. There’s so much in the area to visit also, so it was nice to have the option of a secluded retreat as well as the option to explore mid wales. Thank you so much. Would definitely return!

  • "We had an absolutely brilliant time, and it was such a lovely place and perfect for our needs."

    However, there were some missing features that were promised, including the WiFi, an oven and a dish washer. It didn’t ruin our holiday, but we had brought oven food that went to waste, and one of our party had to miss a work call due to the lack of WiFi. It was still a great holiday, but it would just be good if the listing appliances was accurate.
