  • "The whole complex was beautiful, the hobit huts looked especially nice but not pet friendly which is a real shame."

    My pod was comfortable, but unfortunately the weather was not kind so I checked out 3 days early as the wind and rain was too much. Nothing to do with the complex but I couldn't keep the dogs dry when coming back into the pod. I would like to return but in the summer.

  • "I surprised my partner with a week get away for his birthday in November."

    We both absolutely loved our stay. Although some minor signs of wear and tear it did not detract from the cabins charm and beauty and we had an extremely comfortable stay. The cabin was immaculate and excellent use of space making th area feel cosyand romatic. We loved the hot tub once we figured out how to use it and get it warm. Fresh and clean and one of the staff came and discreetly checked it most days. There was only a 2 ring induction hob and microwave to cook with, but I was aware of this prior to booking, so took an air fryer with us to help cook meals. We loved that there was a wide range of pamphlets in one of the draws, of places to visit in the area and upon our arrival, there was a pint of milk in the fridge, tea, coffee, hot chocolate thoughtfully provided, which was very welcome after a long drive. The Local village and major supermarket were only a short drive away, as well as some local sights to see. Overall we felt the cabin was well situated to be a beautiful romantic escape, with lots of things to do and we have both said we would love to visit again.

    Lovely pod with everything you need for your stay. Bed a little difficult to get in and out of but very comfortable. Was lovely to be able to star gaze from the hot tub with a glass of wine. All in all a fabulous break and place to stay, will definatley recommend and will be visiting again.

    Very clean and tidy. Great little shed at the entrance where you can buy fresh eggs and cakes. Did not realise it didn't have an oven! Lovely large garden space but the dog could get out under the gate. Clean and inviting hot tub. Very close to Elan Valley, Rhayader and the kite feeding. You do need a car to get around.

  • "I was really impressed with the property and the little details you added such as the bottle of milk, and the little jars of coffee, tea and sugar."

    Gemma was also extremely helpful when I had a query. And the views was just incredible! My only critique would be in regards to the directions as phone reception up to the location wasn’t great, I would recommend amended the what3words as I used that and it took me about 2 miles further away from where you were. And I would also recommend maybe a mini site map as it took me about 5 minutes to find the cabin only because there were no signs. But overall was a great stay. Now I know where it is, definitely booking it again!

  • "Me and my boyfriend stayed here at Mountain View for 2 nights on Easter bank holiday 2021."

    It was the first time we had been away on a holiday since November 2019, before the world became engulfed by Covid-19. On arrival, there weren't any signposts for the site itself, nor was there any to indicate where our particular pod was. But it didn't take us long to drive around a little before we managed to find it. The hot tub was heated ready for our arrival and was beautiful to sit in with a glass of prosecco watching the sun go down over the mountains. The pod was clean and comfortable and had a hand sanitiser attached to the wall outside which was handy. The patio/garden area was really spacious and would be lovely for BBQ season at summertime! The only 2-3 negatives about our pod was that the shower was scorching hot and we couldn't stay in there for more than 3 minutes because it was so hot :( and the bathroom door didn't shut properly and didn't have a lock. Also there were no instructions on how to switch on the outdoor lights and we couldnt figure out how to turn them on (this didn't really matter much as the hot tub had lights so we put those on but would have been nice to have the outdoor lights on too). We didn't mind these issues so much as they were only minor - it didn't affect our enjoyment of the stay. It was peaceful, no traffic, everyone who was on site was quiet and the pods are spaced out generously. On our full day there, we went for a long walk along the resoirvoir at Elan Valley and that is an absolute must see!! I wish I could post a photo to show you the views it was beautiful!! Also the little town of Rhayader which is the oldest town in Mid Wales is literally a 4 minute drive away with good access for parking. It was an amazing few days away and it was the most relaxed we had felt in a longggg time, since before Covid-19! Thank you for a lovely weekend and we are already looking to book again! :)

  • "Beautiful place, and the lodge was lovely."

    However, there was no hot water for 2 nights, and it was 0 degrees over the weekend. We contacted the owners, they sent someone out Saturday afternoon, said they’d fixed it but when we came back it was still freezing. So another man was sent out and he was also unable to fix the water even after trying for 45 minutes. By this time it was 7/8pm. We were offered a shower but our two nights were pretty much over by that point. We had a lack of correspondence with the owner throughout the week especially when it came down to refunds, didn’t hear from them for 4 days. And then when they did, they said I’d have to go through Sykes for a refund anyway. £325 and not hot water in the middle of winter, just is very inconvenient.

  • "We had a fantastic couple of nights, a much needed break away."

    The pod was so cute and surprisingly more spacious than expected which was great! Plenty of room for the two of us without feeling cramped. The hot tub was fantastic and particularly great after our 21k hike on our full day there. Views were stunning and we felt very safe staying there in this strange Covid world today. We were gutted that we could not write in the visitor book as we didn’t bring a pen with us on the holiday! The only thing I can think of for improvement would be some basic instructions on use of the electrics eg. Hob, heater and exterior lights. Needless to say we will definitely be back for longer next time. Thank you for a much needed and lovely stay.

  • "Had a really good time at this location."

    The views where lovely and the lodge was cosy with ample outside space for our dog. We spent lots of time using the hot tub located outside the lodge (even in minus temperatures whilst it was snowing). The owners are very nice and was always a call away if we needed anything. However, the only feedback for improvements would be: 1. Better directions provided/ viable signs at the location. 2. The induction hob was very difficult to use at times with the touch screen controls not functioning well and food sticking to the pans and then burning. 3. Hot water within the property was not hot, it was just warm. Apart from the feedback, this is an absolutely amazing place to stay and we have recommended to many of our family and friends already. We look forward to returning again soon! :)

  • "The map of where the cabin I am staying is needs updating as it is actually on the opposite side of the road."

    Also arrived to find other people in our cabin who had been advised by Sykes the day before to move into that cabin. I was then on hold for approx 25 mins waiting to get through to someone who didn’t know what had happened and said that they would try to call the owner and then they would get back to me to update me. Thankfully the owner called me after about 15 mins to say that we had been swapped to another cabin and that Sykes has been made aware of this the day before. I didn’t receive a call back from Sykes to ‘update’ me for another 2 hours when they asked whether we still couldn’t get into our property. We should have been notified before we arrived that our lodge has been swapped and the communications at Sykes really needs improving. After a 5 hour drive this is not what you want to start your holiday, very disappointing.

  • "It was so much better than expected, more than enough space for the 2 of us, clean and so comfortable."

    Hot tub was incredible and such a good extra! The location is ideal for a quiet and peaceful break, it was close enough to the local town and there’s lots to do around the area. Garden was well maintained, and fenced off making it private. Because of the space between the other huts, you couldn’t hear any noise from other people. Super peaceful at night, on clear nights we could sit in the hot tub and look at the stars... lush! 2 hobs and a microwave was more than enough to cook on for a few days, dishwasher was useful but an oven might be more useful. Have already recommended it to friends and family and are looking at rebooking next year!

    However the one thing I would suggest is a oven instead of a dishwasher. To add to this, we had a slight issue when we found out we were in the wrong pod, yet we were not told any information prior to our arrival which pod was ours. When we arrived there was only one pod with the light on outside, so therefore we assumed it was ours. Perhaps put a welcome sign on each pod so people will know which pod is theirs, although after this was resolved there were no other issues. The place was spotless upon our arrival and exceeded our expectations, super cosy and comfortable and the hot tub was the cherry on top! Lovely in the winter and I can imagine even better in the summer. Perfect for a weekend break and a great selection of pubs near by with amazing food. The Elan Valley was around 10-15 mins away and a great place for a walk with spectacular views.

    With only the bleeting sheep for back ground noise it really is beautiful spot and prime location for exploring this gorgeous part of Wales ! The Pod was clean and very comfortable with its own Hot Tub which added a touch of luxury and a real bonus ! Each Pod has a secure garden, and accepts two well behaved dogs which was great for us as it’s not always easy to find places that take two dogs ! The only down side for us was no oven , we did however have a Hob , microwave and BBQ and we worked around not having one especially as the weather was good , but I think when the Pods are let out at colder times of the year it could be missed more ! Must mention that the nearest town Rhayader has some great shops and places to eat and we found everyone we met warm and very friendly ! Would we recommend Mountain View ? Most definitely!
