  • "An amazing place."

    Extremely peaceful with very little farm activity during our stay. The ‘Shed’ was well equipped, even to the extent that they provided sticks for toasting your marshmallows over the fire pit should you wish to (wood for the fire pit also provided). When we arrived, there was milk in the fridge and some local treats, which was a nice touch. The hot tub was set up ready for use and was especially welcome after a day out around the dams or visiting various nature reserves. All in all an extremely comfortable, clean, peaceful and relaxing place to stay with the added attraction of Red Kites flying overhead. We would highly recommended the Tin Shed.

  • "Everything was fantastic, the whole place was immaculate when we arrived, the location was perfect for the walks we wanted to do, and we felt very welcomed when we arrived - the locally sourced snacks and drink were a great touch, along with buying eggs from the egg shed which were delicious!"

    We had a fantastic stay, the only thing that let it down was the bed, either it was an incredibly soft mattress or the bed was broken (it was incredibly creaky just from rolling over), but my other half and I have come away with pain in our backs from it. Otherwise it was an absolutely brilliant trip for us and we’d definitely come back and stay at the Tin Shed again

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Tin Shed with our two dogs."

    Very cozy, loved the hot tub! Great location for walking, we went to the Elan Valley on one day (about 15 minutes drive), and Pen Y Fan (about 50 minutes). The Tin Shed is set on a farm, it’s nice and quiet, private. The interior is very nicely decorated, the underfloor heating is lovely, everything you need for a kitchen, a cozy bed, sofa, and a smart tv! The outdoor is fully enclosed for the dogs, it’s not visible in the photos, but the fence does have wire mesh also, so they cannot get in between the slats. Took us a little while to find it as the map location on Sykes cottages website was wrong. Would definitely recommend, and would definitely stay here again. The only minor inconvenience was the WiFi wasn’t working when we visited, but luckily there was phone signal so we were able to hotspot the tv from our phones. The outdoor bath tap has also burst (presumably from freezing), however we just used the hot tub which was great

  • "Where do I even start."

    The nicest lodge we have every stayed in. The cleanliness is incomparable to anywhere we have ever stayed before and had absolutely everything we needed. The hamper on arrival with marshmallows and treats was such a nice, thoughtful touch. This place definitely made mine and my boyfriends New Year’s Eve the best we’ve ever had, especially going into the new year in the hot tub stargazing! Absolutely incredibly place, that felt like home away from home. I will definitely be recommending this place to friends/family and we will certainly be back! Thank you!

  • "We had the most amazing 8 days at The Tin Shed with our two dogs."

    The property is stunning - amazing views, extremely clean, perfectly furnished and well equipped. The isolation from the outside world is exactly what we needed - there was nobody around the entire time we were there. The surrounding area is ideal for people with dogs are there are so many stunning walks just down the road. The little touches such as the welcome hamper full of supplies, the dog treats, the dressing gown and smart TV really made the visit even better. The hot tub is fantastic for relaxing in after a long day walking - we were even treated to a meteor shower. We will absolutely recommend to all our friends and family!

  • "The Tin Shed was a wonderful experience, quiet, warm, cozy and well presented."

    The lady that comes and put chlorine in the jacuzzi are very professional and ensure you know they’re there before they come round back. I would give this a 10/10. Even though we did have issues with WiFi not being findable at all, this does not affect the score at all, it was fantastic and will 100% book again at some point.

    Fantastic views, very quiet. The hot tub and the outside bath are both a great bonus and much needed after the long walks round Elan Valley. Will definitely be booking to come back. Xx

  • "Our stay was absolutely wonderful!"

    ! We didn’t have a pen to leave feedback In the book however, might be good to leave one in the lodge! Tin Shed was glorious, so clean, tidy and EXACTLY like the photos, and couldn’t have asked for better weather, the hot tub was amazing, but they had thought of every detail and had some lovely gifts left to us by the owners! Thanks so much, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back, only thing to note is that the instructions to get actually get to Tin Shed were really vague, might be a good shout to put a sign on the A44 with an arrow pointing to it :) Many thanks!!!!
