  • "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

  • "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.

    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.

  • "The view..."

    . 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.

  • "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!

    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!

    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.
