Tidy and very comfortable with everything needed for a lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Myself an partner stayed with 2 kids and a dog. Lovely garden and outside area all safe and contained for the dog to run around. Karl is a really nice guy and the house was very homely with the large dining table in kitchen.

Snowy mountains looked awesome and will certainly return in the summer months

Ideal base to explore the local area, clean and comfortable home from home.

  • 5 of 5

A friendly and welcoming host, clean and comfortable cottage, warm and cosy with all we needed for our short stay. Located close to local beauty spots, not too far from local shops and town but nicely tucked away. We will be back. Thank you.

A real find with the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on the weekend for two nights and couldn’t fault it. The cottage is attached to the Main house but you feel like it’s your own little haven. Karl the host was fantastic, giving us information on places to walk with our little terrier. We walked into town and back which really wasn’t that far at all. The cottage was spotless when we arrived and extremely well equipped. The open fire was a highlight and we felt totally at home. Already planning a week away here next year to explore more of the area! Thanks Karl!

A hidden little treasure for the ideal get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely, cosy and private cottage, lovely location where the scenic views are a delight! Lots of birds and wildlife to enjoy and still close enough to the village and Elan Valley. Super for walking dogs and the nearby woodland walks are a pleasure- host Karl was really friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend and hope to have a return visit soon. Thank you once again!

Car: necessary

The cottage is 1.5 miles from the town of Rhayader and a short drive from the Elan Valley with its dams and reservoir, there is a Red kite feeding station just outside Rhayader and plenty of footpaths and bridleways to explore the surrounding hills.
