  • "Loved our stay in View Point cottage!"

    Mrs Scott is lovely, met us at her drive as we got lost. The cottage is gorgeous and the views are amazing. Lovely place to stay for a nice quiet relaxing holiday or if you love walking, you can walk for miles.

  • "Beautiful house which looks out across fields and hills and is really isolated, just what we were hoping for."

    We arrived at about 10:30 on a Friday night, it was very dark and wet. Alarmingly sat nav told us we'd arrived when we were in the middle of nowhere on a single track road with nowhere to turn around. The owner had helpfully told me to lookout for a blue digger and pond on the edge of the drive (the house not being visible from the road), which thankfully came into view just around the next corner. I should have had more faith, the What Three Words we were given by the owner worked perfectly! We did a click and collect for shopping on the way and I would advise getting at least some basics (tea bags, milk etc) on the way in as there was nothing at all in the house on arrival, presumably a COVID precaution. The house was lovely, it smelled and looked really clean and was well maintained, it had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen had a small freestanding freezer too which was a bonus because I don't think this was mentioned in the details. Quite a few books and puzzles/games for wet days or just staying in of an evening. Plenty of walking in the area for us to tackle but footpaths were sometimes a bit tricky to follow on the ground with numerous farm gates being tied shut or barbed wire along them (watch your waterproofs!). There are numerous places to eat, most are a good 30 mins + away by car though. We tried a few places, but would thoroughly recommend The Lime Kiln near Oswestry, very welcoming and the food was lovely with a good range of veggie options too. All in all a lovely relaxing week in a lovely house, thank you!

    The cottage was spacious, comfortable, quiet and located in a very scenic area. To get up each morning and enjoy the view across the valley from the living room window was the icing on the cake.

  • "The cottage was absolutely stunning, set in a very secluded spot."

    The owner lives just infront but we seen her on the first evening and that was it. So even though its on the same land you are not on top of one another. The cottage itself was beautiful, very picturesque. Grest facilities, the local shop was only five minutes away in the car.

  • "This part of Wales is beautiful."

    If you want peace and quiet this is the ideal place, very much off the beaten track. But the owners Rita and Mark are very friendly and on hand not too far away if you need them. If you like hiking the surrounding area and places that are within an easy drive are ideal (Lake Vyrnwy), Llangollen (for canal walks or narrow boat trips)and Llangynog (walk to Pistyll Rhaeady -waterfall), this can also be reached by driving through the village of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant. The cottage is so peaceful and the stars at night can be breathtaking especially when it is a clear sky.

    Thank you Mark, Rita, Alex & Georgia for renting your beautiful house to us, for being so helpful, friendly & hospitable. The house is simply lovely. Clean, very warm with lovely decor. Views from the front of the house are breathtaking. Gorgeous surrounding area with lovely walks. We had a very relaxing stay so thank you. We also would like to thank you for allowing us to use one of your fields so that Lucy (our energetic Lab) could run free. Weather was abit poor but that is expected when holidaying in the UK.

  • "View Point Cottage is a beautiful former farmhouse located in a peaceful position on a smallholding overlooking the Tanat valley."

    There are extensive views of hills and mountains and relaxing in the garden recliners watching the sun set over the mountains is a particularly exquisite experience. Rita and Mark, the owners, live nearby and are happy to convey their knowledge of the locality. The cottage was very suitable for the two of us and our two dogs with plenty of places available to exercise them nearby. The cottage is ideally located for visiting the Snowdonia National Park and the surrounding countryside which is equally unspoilt. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would highly recommend View Point Cottage as a base for visiting North Wales and the Borders.

    Perfect for a peaceful week away. The owner was very helpful and even brought a toy tracker for my son to play with while we stayed.

  • "Walking from the door was not great as its a narrow lane."

    However, the owners were great. Came to find us, when we could not find the cottage. A regular occurrence I believe, as the lane looks like coming to a dead end and we turned away, rather than going down a bit that looked like it would be dodgy to reverse out of. Not necessary as it turned out. Would certainly return.

  • "This was a very comfortable and cosy cottage."

    It was warm and generally quiet. On arrival everything looked exceptionally clean and tidy, there was loads of storage and lots of kitchen equipment. It was a great place to relax, which was exactly what we had wanted. We felt that the lovely owners, who are on site, were available should help of been needed whilst they werre not intrusive. The scenary surrounding the cottage was stunning and there were plenty of good walks, some flat alongside rivers, others more challenging in hillside. Something to suit everyone. Locally we found really good places to eat at reasonable prices. We felt it was reasonably priced and we had a lovely holiday. .
