"Cottage was beautiful, surroundings were amazing and place was very clean."
Very much enjoyed our stay. Only small thing is to remember to bring toilet roll, only 2 rolls was left for 5 people for the 3 days. Welsh cakes and eggs was a nice touch. Owner was lovely and very welcoming
"Excellent place to stay."
So relaxing will be going back really soon.
"We enjoyed our stay a lot."
A lovely host and a cosy cottage with the most spectacular view. Would highly recommend.

Owners friendly nothing was too much trouble nice welcome from dogs too we enjoyed the eggs and Welsh cakes thank you for a lovely holiday
"Waggoners Cottage was lovely just as per the web site, the owner Jennifer met us upon arrival, and showed us around the cottage."
The cottage was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Absolutely stunning views from the patio, we had daily visits from Jennifer the check the Hot Tube and have a chat about the farm activities.
"We were greeted by Ivy/Vera and she was friendly and gave us a thorough tour of the cottage and showed us how to use the hot tub etc."
There appeared to be lots of rules around the hot tub, including only using it for half an hour at a time. We were asked to sign a contract agreeing to this also prior to using the hot tub . The positives are as follows: Fantastic views and the cottage is well located centrally to access most of Wales easily. Lots of wildlife - birds etc in the garden (as well as the sound of sheep and cows which added to the experience). Bed was comfortable. Cottage was well furnished - TV, kitchen and utensils, washing machine etc Negatives: The driveway was hazardous for us as it was all gravel (not good for motorbikes as we all nearly came off on several occasions - sliding about on it). As mentioned above - the hot tub and the rules. The shower was quite dated and not powerful although did the job. The upstairs bathroom had no lock on it. This is a simple job and I would have expected it to have been done to avoid any embarrassment when someone is using the bathroom - and someone else walks in accidentally. The owners had some farm dogs (Collies) and although they were very friendly, we noticed that they used our garden as a toilet (and on one occasion we almost stepped in some poo)!
"The host was very friendly and welcoming, the cottage was lovely and had everything that we needed for our stay with amazing views."
It's a great location for exploring the area and it was bonus to hop into the hot tub after a day of sight seeing. Would definitely come back again :)
"The place was just lovely."
The owner is super friendly and helpful. Hot tub and views were the real seller omg-wow. We will all be back again. Thank you so much for our wonderful time.
"Excellent rural setting, enjoyed it thoroughly."
"Had such an amazing time away mrs Tilsley was so welcoming and made our stay perfect!"
I will definitely be returning back!
"Met on arrival and received a very warm welcome and a tour of the property."
Exceptionally clean and seemed like entering home, very comfortable. The views were stunning and quite surprised us how love these were. Hot-tub fantastic and although unfortunately we were not there long we had a fabulous time. Would definately book again. Beautiful.
"Everything was perfect."
Owner went over and above to be helpful. Would definitely recommend and stay here again
"Lovely welcome on arrival."
Cottage beautiful and very clean. Views amazing. Enjoyed the hot tub. Will return again for a winter weekend away next to that log burner . Had a great lunch at the local the Nags Head.
"My happy place."
We having been staying at Waggoners Cottage for many years and it never fails to disappoint. Very comfortable cottage with amazing views. The addition of the hot tub is the icing on the cake. The owners are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We will continue to return!
"Had a lovely week in the cottage."
Everything we wanted for a relaxing time away. Will be looking at coming back.
"Lovely cottage, beautiful views."
Hot tub is amazing although we took our own gazebo for shelter against the rain. Highly recommended
"I have visited this cottage several times over the years."
I have always been impressed how clean and tidy it is and how good the facilities are. The views from the cottage are outstanding and to sit in the hot tub looking out over the hills is great. The owner is very helful and friendly and checks regularly to make sure all is OK. Finally the area us very good for walking ,Shopping and visiting historic places of interest.
"Wonderful place, owner really friendly and helpful."
Will definitely be back
"The welcome pack was minimal and no milk, no cleaning clothes to use, we had to buy some."
The log fire smoked so much we had to open all the windows and doors, needless to say we did not use again. The location was beautiful though and serenely peaceful, sheep and cows and lovely bird life. The hot tub was well looked after and it was lovely to sit back and enjoy the views of Wales.
"Amazing views,no noise to be heard peaceful relaxing great hot tub,lovely owners, kids enjoyed playing with the owners dogs,very secluded just what we wanted,clean cottage a few flies about but only opened windows in the morning and evening and had fan on during the day so only a few flies but it is a working farm so to be expected, powis castle and gardens was a lovely day out."
"We arrived at around 6pm Monday night and were greeted by the owner who seemed great."
We spoke and she almost immediately mentioned about flies and said to keep the windows closed. We understood that there might be a couple of flies as it was by a field, but we were a bit concerned about leaving the windows closed on the hottest day on record. Anyway we left the windows closed and had fans blowing hot air all night so we all sweated buckets and hardly slept. The next morning we went down stairs to a mass of flies. Anytime you opened the doors the flies would creep in. We told the owner who tried to hoover them up, but she ultimately blamed it on the weather, which we thought was untrue as there was fly buckets around the property, fly zappers, fly strips and also fly spray that she told us to spray around the property even though we had small children (we didn't want them breathing in the fumes)We were told to open all the windows and put the fans on downstairs to get rid of the flies, this inturn caused more flies to come in, they were evetywhere, in the cupboards in the fridge and on any crumbs of food that were left behind. We decided to leave after the first night as we just couldn't relax. There is clearly a fly issue in the property, if we would of know before we would not of booked. If you have to have fly zappers, fly strips, fly sprays ect in a property then there is a fly issue in there. We received a 1/3 of our money back which she thought was fair, how can that be fair when we have lost money and a holiday due to no fault of our own. We have 4 small children and can't afford to book another holiday. The owner is unfair and clearly only cares about the payment you make. This place is FLY INFESTED. Also had to pick up dog poo that had been there a while as it was white.
I am sorry that you were unhappy with your accommodation. When you received the keys to the accommodation, the property was 100% clean and fly free. It is your responsibility to manage and maintain the property during your stay. As you mentioned, in your review, you arrived on the hottest day on record for this country. I can only advise you on how to keep the property cool and fly free. I gave you a generous 'good will gesture' against the advice of the booking company. Although we are unable to totally prevent flies, we are here to advise and support our guests and supply preventative measures, if required. We pride ourselves in making sure all our guests have an enjoyable stay. Property Owner
"Beautiful cottage situated in some of the most beautiful countryside."
..none of the pictures can do it justice! . Had everything you could need in the cottage and the hot tub was lush!. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming..cannot recommend highly enough
"This was a second visit for us after staying in 2021."
The cottage has spectacular views and is set in a calm and peaceful location but is in easy reach of Newtown and Welshpool with the coast being around an hours car journey away.The only noises likely to be heard are the baaing of the sheep and the mooing of the cows along with birdsong..This is so lovely to listen to. Sunsets and sunrises are beautiful. The cottage was spotlessly clean and has benefitted from new comfortable lounge furniture and a new dining table. Their is a dishwasher and a washing machine although it may benefit from a dryer which would be useful if weather is inclement and the outside line is not able to be used. There is however a drying rack provided and clothes will dry on this in the lobby . The cottage is equipped with plenty of utensils, cups and even plastic glasses if needed whilst sitting outside . Hand and bath towels are provided and there was liquid hand soap in both bathrooms.The hot tub is an added benefit with lovely views to be seen whilst relaxing in it. The owner , Jen is extremely helpful and friendly with nothing being too much trouble. The lettuce and radishes she gave us from her garden were delicious . We also met her husband and daughter who were also very friendly .We benefited this week by having lovely weather and we were able to sit in the garden enjoying the scenery frequently. We will definitely be returning again and are so pleased we found this gem of a holiday cottage. We would highly recommend.
"Beautiful, stunning, welcoming, clean, amazing place to stay, we loved it there and will go back as soon as we can xx"
"Absolutely fantastic cottage, incredible location especially if you have little ones for walks etc."
Views are sensational from the cottage looking over the beautiful hills of wales (and also from the hot tub which was also amazing) The owner lives just across the way from the cottage but gave us full privacy and mrs Tilsley was absolutely lovely. We will definitely be returning. Simple sensational ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Great cottage, amazing views, lovely hosts"
"The most beautiful views, perfect location for a relaxing getaway."
We had everything we needed and felt like home almost straight away. Mrs Tisley was the most perfect host and made us feel so welcome and we didn’t want to leave. Such a lovely place to stay and will home to return! Recommend the canal walk to the Nags Head for Sunday roast dinner.
"We had a lovely weekend away, the Cottage is well equipped and comfortable."
It is very clean and mostly modern, the bathroom and shower room are tired and and there was only small towels (not bath towels) to use. We had everything to make a fire left for us on the first night but no matches or fire lighters to light it. We enjoyed it the next day when we bought some. The fridge wasn't turned on which took us a while to realise. No big deal but our food wasn't straight into a cold fridge. Aside of those little things, the hot tub and the views were fantastic, there are walks straight from the door on the farmland ( we didnt get to go as it was the weekend Eunice and Franklin arrived which made it very windy and wet) but we didn't go for the weather and the cottage gave us an enjoyable family weekend away. The Nags head 1 mile away provided us with a fantastic lunch too. Thank you
"I came here with 3 of my friends to celebrate my 30th birthday and could not recommend this location enough!"
! The owner Mrs Tilsley is very welcoming and a lovely lady who made sure everything was perfect for us. The kitchen it fully equipped with all you need, even down to baking equipment!! The hot tub was unreal too with the most scenic views to sit in front of! I will most definitely be returning! Xx
"We were thoroughly impressed with Waggoners Cottage."
The view is outstanding and the cottage had everything we needed for a chilled and comfortable weekend. The beds were comfortable and the hot tub was such a treat! The cottage was really cosy and the Owner was fantastic. Will definitely be returning.
"Lovely views, hot tub was relaxing and really clean and comfortable"
"It was a beautiful well kept cottage."
Very tranquil. Would definitely be going back
"The cottage and hot tub were both clean and the host was close by so if any issues arose we were able to speak with her immediately, for example we had a small issue with wasps in the upstairs bathroom that got sorted within a day of two of our stay."
The cottage had ample kitchen supplies and bedding. The farm itself offers great views and walks and is located close to local tourist sights such as Powis castle. It is a nice place for a getaway.
"Had a fabulous stay."
The owners were really lovely. Our cottsge was absolutely fantastic, with stunning views. We had amazing views and with the hot tub too, it was quite perfect. Only thing that let it down for us, due to the hot weather, there was quite a few wasps and flies that got in the cottage, which was annoying. The owners tried to get rid of them, but that was a temporary measure until the cottage was empty for 24 hours . Other than that a perfect place to stay. Thankyou for an awesome holiday Mr & Mrs Tilley xx
"Just returned from an amazing weeks stay at Waggoners Cottage."
The host Mrs Tilsey was lovely,gave us lots of information about the local area.The cottage was spotless and had the most amazing views with the added bonus of a hot tub which was checked everyday by the owners.If your looking for a beautiful cottage in the hills of the Welsh countryside with cows as your neighbours and and hot tub with a view then this is the place for you ,can not recommend it enough.
"This amazing Holiday started off with easy to follow directions and a warm welcome from the lovely host Mrs Tilsley on arrival."
The cottage was perfect, exactly as described! Every comfort catered for. Fabulous well arranged kitchen, all the gadgets you could need were there. Externally the views of the countryside and the farm took our breath away. We 100% enjoyed a fortnight of comfort and perfect peace. The private hot tub was checked daily by Mrs Tillsley which we found most reassuring. We loved watching and learning from our friendly hosts about farming, their animals and the wildlife. We will absolutely stay here again, one of the best Cottages’s by far for a warm welcome, excellent standard of facilities, stunning location and absolutely loads of places to visit as well as a great restaurant close by. Sunday lunch at the Nags head was delicious! This holiday was exactly what we had hoped for and so much more, we were truly sorry to leave.
"Beautiful setting , calm and peaceful location with a spectacular view."
Owner was very friendly and checked hot tub on a daily basis to ensure it was running correctly. It was lovely to relax in the hot tub just looking at those views .Would definitely consider returning
"A lovely cottage with a spectacular view."
All COVID cleaning procedures are adhered to. All amenities available within cottage. Cottage situated next to a working farm, the owners are very helpful and friendly. A good launch point for days out either via car or walking. The hot tub is very clean and a good experience.
"The owner was helpful and friendly, and happy to engage in conversation, with great ideas for sightseeing and walks in the local area."
Views from the cottage were incredible and we will be looking to stay here again.
"Waggoners cottage is in a beautiful position on a working farm with wonderful far reaching views to the rolling hills of Wales."
All facilities were top knotch and the hot tub wonderfully relaxing after a busy day sightseeing. Mrs Tilsley is a lovely friendly host with lots of suggestions of places to visit and helpful if we needed any help with anything. We would love to visit again sometime.
"Great owners, lovely greeting and beyond amazing view."
"We had an absolutely wonderful weekend at Waggoners Cottage."
Greeted on arrival by one of the owners we were made to feel very welcome and the cottage and hot tub have the most amazing views. I have already recommended Waggoners Cottage and sent details to friends and we only got back yesterday!!
"The scenery and the silence was outstanding."
Saw the milky way whilst soaking in the hot tub such clear skies. Awoke to pheasants in the garden and young cows in the field next to the cottage, beautiful. Mrs Tilsley was a lovely lady and couldn't have made us feel more welcome. The cottage was immaculate and everything there that you could possibly ever need. Simply put... Perfection.
"This was such an amazing place to stay, and would definitely recommend it to everyone."
Me and my mates can't wait to go back. Its on a lovely farm run by some lovely people. You wake up to some amazing views and the sound of animals. It is truly beautiful.
. Wow.... Day after day I was transfixed with this view, I want to live here. The cottage is great and the master bed is very comfy. The hot tub is superb and has that view. The farm is lovely and is about a mile from the road, so it is very quiet. The owner is truly lovely and their farm dogs are a delight. The cottage is situated between 2 towns which both have large chain supermarkets and there is a National Trust house minutes away. We had been due to go to spain for our break but 2020 happened so we booked here. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, chilled out place, we were not disappointed.
"Everything was as described."
The owner(Jen) was there to meet us and explain everything including the procedures they had put in place in respect of COVID. The property is lovely and ideal to use as a base for exploring this beautiful part of the country. The cottage has everything you could wish for and was perfect for us. Thanks to all concerned.
"First time to Wales but won't be the last."
The cottage was lovely and the surrounding views were beautiful. Mrs Tilsey was a lovely host and made us welcome the Welsh people were so friendly to us and enjoyed the food at the Dragon hotel at Montgomery and the Nags Head. Lovely holiday.
"This cottage is lovely - the rooms are nice the views are nice and the owners are really nice."
I will be coming back to this cottage
"The cottage is amazing, beautiful location, friendly greetings by the owner, so happy I booked here."
will be booking here again
"My friends and I just came home from a fabulous weekend celebrating a 30th birthday."
It was a last minute booking due to a late cancellation with another company but everything was smooth and stress free. The facilities were perfect for a cosy weekend in, the views were fabulous and the family who run the cottage are super friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend for a weekend away
"This is a wonderful cottage in lovely surroundings."
the owners were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us, even allowed us to wonder around and see the animals. lots of wild life to be seen and the near by Nags Head served us a lovely lunch. the cottage was clean and well equipped and the hot tub was spotless. I came for a weekend with my friends and it was a fab way to enjoy some girly chat x I can’t wait to go back x
"We loved it !"
The views were incredible! It was lovely and cosy ! And lovely pubs within short distance! Hosts were lovely and accommodating!
"A couple of things need mentioning: on arrival in dark the signage is wrong as still have on a property they no longer own so you don’t actually know where their property is as no instructions given on email etc ."
Freezer not turned on when we arrived so couldn’t use it straightaway and hoped that it would reach correct temp overnight in order to put our groceries in next morning after food shop. Instructions say should be put on 24hrs before use.Hot tub didn’t maintain heat it should have. In children’s garden/play area on property several areas with dog poo from their dog. No visitors book with comments in or to write own. Though the property was clean , comfortable etc lovely location, there was something lacking from owners , when we mentioned some of the above they were quite dismissive “ oh we don’t put freezer on as some guests don’t use it, when you take lid off hot tub obviously the temperature will go down(we’ve never had this problem before), signage on old property:” oh yes we’ve been meaning to put an arrow to tell you carry straight on ,a few people have said same but we’ve just not got round to it” we felt there was no point mentioning the dog poo!
"The location of the cottage was outstanding with some of the nicest views."
The owners were very hospitable and friendly, checkjng ro make sure that everything was ok with our stay. The cottage itself was small but ideal for what we needed and had all the amenities that we required.
"Just to say there is also a games room with pool table, table football and ..."
Just to say there is also a games room with pool table, table football and table tennis free to use, the cottage is fantastic and so quiet but has the convenience of welshpool town only 15 mins drive to morrisons all in all a great place to stay with brilliant local pubs I will definitely be going back again''
"The views are fantastic, and the host was so friendly and couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome."
Would definitely visit again.
"Can’t thank Mrs Tilsley enough, she was a lovely host and gave us some beautiful blue fresh eggs, which were so tasty."
Photographs don’t do this property justice! Lovely atmosphere being on a farm with lambs outside our window in the morning. Lovely and relaxing in the hot tub with the views. Lovely little games shed and a little playground for the children. The only comment that I would make is as it is a working farm ask for fly spray as a lot of flies get in the property! I would love to stay here again!
"The pictures and the description of this cottage don't do it justice!"
My partner and I had a fantastic week here, the hosts were brilliant and so lovely and definitely went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. The only thing I had an issue with was the hardness of the pillows and because I suffer from chronic pain it caused me an issue but it was easily resolved. The weather while we were here topped off an absolutely amazing holiday. We would definitely stay here again in a heart beat.
"Outstanding location with beautiful view , great host ."
Loved it . Hot tub terrific . Will definitely be back . One of the nicest if not the nicest cottages I’ve stayed in .
"Pictures do not do this property justice."
Views were amazing and the property was lovely and very clean. Owners were friendly and even gave us eggs from the farm. Very relaxing stay. Highly recommend.
Fantastic host and brilliant property
"Such a lovely cottage and place to stay!"

"The Cottage is really relaxing."
.beautiful views..great host..peaceful location if you looking to chill from the noisy city life. Hot tub icing on the cake for me. Would definitely go back.

Mrs Tilsley was a fantastic host.
"This was an unexpected surprise and we will be definitely going back to stay at this cottage."
Very accommodating, brilliant with our children and outstanding views. 10 Out of 10
