  • "Poor lighting in the kitchen, spotlight in bathroom ill fitting, shower not fit for purpose as curtain sticks to you when using shower and glass shelf drained water off either end of shelf so water ran onto floor causing damp and black mould."

    We are both saddened to read such a poor review. As previous reviews have shown our feedback is normally very positive. We always provide information on how to contact us should there be any issues and would have gladly provided extra lighting for the kitchen area, one of the several spotlights in the bathroom had just been replaced but was not screwed back in securely, we would have been able to rectify this for you within a few minutes if given the chance.

  • "Talkhouse Cottage is beautifully equipped with everything we needed."

    It was very comfortable with lots of space to move around and oodles of storage options. The kitchen was well laid out with cupboard space to put our food supplies in. The bathroom is spacious and well lit with the most luxurious towels ever. The bedroom was light and airy with 2 wardrobes and a set of drawers for our clothes. We slept very well in the comfortable bed although it was a little too warm for us. The proximity of the road and railway never disturbed us, apart from the one car with a noisy exhaust, even though we are light sleepers. Tim and Jackie are excellent hosts and were very quick to attend to our one issue, a wobbly chair. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise, hubby loves Welsh cakes. Did not make use of the coffee pods as I am dairy intolerant, but the thought was there. Basic supplies like the tea, coffee etc and milk in the fridge all go to show how attentive these hosts are to details. We love the area with its hills, lanes and driving trails, as hubby is limited mobility we rarely walk anywhere but the amazing scenery nearby was amazing.

    Dear Carole & Allan, We are delighted with such wonderful feedback and that you enjoyed the cottage and surrounding areas so much. We hope to see you again in the future. Kind Regards Tim & Jackie Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyed the stay, comfortable and cosy, welcome pack was very nice and appreciated."

    Only drawback was the proximity of a busy road which was a little noisy. Otherwise a lovely place to visit, will definitely recommend it.

    It was lovely to meet you and thank you for your feedback. It’s appreciated that the road can be busy during the day especially as it was during holiday time. The traffic does quieten down during the evening and hopefully does not interfere with sleeping. The building is part of a historic road side coaching inn and has character and charm accordingly. We are so pleased that you would recommend us and would love to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards Tim & Jackie Property Owner

  • "I'd like to start by saying how much we loved our stay here and how much we appreciate the added amenities we received on our arrival!"

    The Easter egg, champagne and dog treats were a thoughtful addition and they really enhanced the experience. The cottage will be forever etched in my mind since it's where I popped the question to my fiancé. Apologies for filling up the hoover bags with petals, I did try to look for more hoover bags to replace it but had no luck! I would give 4.5 stars if I could but its not possible on here. The reason for our rating is down to the cob webs we found in a lot of the property. We also found a bit of broken glass by the sofa. Lastly, it would've been nice if we were provided with some basic toiletries like shower gel and shampoo. Besides those small things we had an amazing time! Thank you so much!

    We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and that this is now your special place. We would like to wish you both every happiness for the future and congratulations on your engagement. Tim & Jackie x Property Owner

  • "Lovely, comfortable cottage."

    Well equipped set in a lovely area. Unfortunately didn't get out as much as we liked as it was quite wet the week we stayed, but luckily the cottage was warm and cozy. Dog was safe in enclosed garden and enjoyed the pack of treats kindly supplied by the owners. We also enjoyed the chocolates etc left for the humans. Would recommend chip shop in Caersws if you don't feel like cooking. We had our first and last supper from there. Would also recommend the Bull and Heifer just outside Newtown (probably 15-20 minute drive from cottage). Had a lovely meal there and Dog friendly. Would certainly recommend this cottage to others and would certainly stay again ourselves if staying around that area again. Thank you to the owners for providing such a high standard property.

  • "This cottage is beautiful, the owners have thought of everything and also include a few extras - we have had a wonderful few days in Wales as the location is also great for getting about and seeing a bit of mid Wales."

    .the walks just by the cottage are also brilliant- there’s a quaint little open church in the village near by which is worth a visit to and the shop in town is very well stocked of everything you may need. We had dinner at the Mawr Hall near by which was lush. Can’t fault the cottage or wales…the only one critic if i have one is the road by the cottage is very noisy…not so much busy but the lorries that go past are very noisy and this starts early in the morning- it’s not a constant but it can disturb your sleep a little as they are going most of the day and some in the night…wouldn’t put me off going again but needs a mention…. Thanks again Wales

The property

Caersws 1.8 miles.

Resting in Pontdolgoch near Caersws, Powys is this romantic, single-storey cottage, The Talkhouse Cottage.

With open-plan living, rural surroundings and a bedroom with en-suite, this is a wonderful, pet-friendly cottage for two guests to explore Mid Wales.

Off-road parking is available in front of the characterful, stone-walled converted stable with a gorgeous oak porchway beckoning you inside.

The open-plan living space has been lovingly decorated with farmhouse furnishings and charming décor; the spacious, well-equipped kitchen area is a foodie's dream with a gas range cooker to rustle up home-cooked meals.

Set the table for a candle-lit dinner for two before snuggling up on the sofa by the warmth of the gas fire, with a TV and DVD player for evening entertainment.

You'll find a pretty king-size bedroom with vaulted ceilings and ample storage space to make yourself at home; turn on the TV for lazy mornings catching your favourite shows, before getting ready in the stylish en-suite.

Sink into the bubbles in the roll-top bath, complete with a shower over and heated towel rail for added comfort.

The front garden is a peaceful little sanctuary to enjoy the sunshine from the outdoor seating and plan the day's adventures; head into the nearby village of Caersws to stock up at the local butcher, delicatessen specialising in Welsh produce, or dine at one of three traditional pubs.

Further afield lies Newton, a larger market town with parks, museums and the nearby Pwll Penarth Nature Reserve; pack a picnic for a scenic walk up to the ruins of the 13th-century Dolforwyn Castle!

Surrounding The Talkhouse Cottage are a range of footpaths and nature reserves, including the unspoilt Llyn Mawr; further afield lies the spectacular Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park and the Shropshire Hills AONB.

Treat your loved one to a romantic holiday in Wales at The Talkhouse Cottage.
