    It wud of been nice if u wud of popped down to say hello, how cum u said there was only 1 hut left wen theres only 2 stuck in a field in the middle of nowhere an it takes at least 2hrs to get to a town, an the other hut was empty.also if u need the toilet in the nite u have to climb over someone to get out the bed.I think ur criteria of the huts etc is very deceiving an i wudnt stay again or recommend it. I doubt if u will publish this

    The owners were very friendly and being on holiday on my own was nice they stopped to say hello. The accommodation was clean and very comfortable, have everything you needed. Being here with my dog it was nice to see a fence had been put up between the two as this made it very stress free time. The location is stunning and will definitely be coming back!

    I can’t thank the owners enough. I couldn’t fault anything and the little gifts were so lovely and much appreciated. It was so cosy and had everything we needed. Brilliant for the dog too with the enclosed garden.

  • "Great place to stay, a big selling point which should really be added is the night sky when it is clear, my wife and I stared at the stars for hours."

    The only gripe, which is very minor at best, the mirror provided in the bathroom was a little too high for a 5ft 3 and a half inch lady, as I said, Minor. Overall the experience was great, a lovely area to walk around and a fantastic place to stay, we would definitely come again.

    Extra touches really made the difference (Welsh cakes, bbq, oil, washing up liquid, tea coffee sugar etc). Amazing view from the hut which was so relaxing, the dog had a great time too! We had the most relaxing few days and can't thank you enough!

  • "Fab little hut, and really enjoyed the break."

    Many thanks. Water heating needs a little thought. Warm shower for 30 seconds, then remained cold. Not too bad in warm weather, but wouldn't be so keen after arriving back following a soaking day in the hills!

  • "Lovely, quiet place, very clean."

    Thank you for fizzy and biscuits as a welcome. Great view every morning and amazing place to observe the sky at night. Elan Valley is not far away (8 min by car) with beautiful views. You can rent a bike or plan whole day walking trip. You can also find other attractions nearby such as canoeing or red kite feeding.
