Reviews

The holiday property was excellent in a lovely, peaceful location. The hot tub was a real hit with the teenagers. Highlights of our visit were the trip to the Gigrin red kite feeding centre, Devil's Bridge and Carreg Cennen Castle. Mrs K Kissack - 20th August 2018
Had a great stay - owners welcoming, the cottage was lovely, comfortable and well equipped. Lots of thought gone into how to make the stay the best it could be! Lovely location a short walk along the lane to a good pub!Wendy from Mold - 22nd May 2018
Very welcoming hosts, lovely comfortable property in a peaceful setting. Would definitely recommend. Excellent food in local pub.Denise from West Midlands - 21st April 2018
Beautiful cottage, extra special with the gifts supplied by the owner, and the owners were so helpful
Recommends: Excellent Indian takeaway that delivered to property.Family from Cardiff - 26th June 2017
Quiet, relaxing, hot tub was fantastic, welcome pack was a lovely touch & the owners were very friendly, helpful & nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be going back. Food at the local pub was very good. Our stay was not long enough to see everything. Jane & Richard were more than helpful with information on places to go, which we will do next time.Family from Northamptonshire - 6th October 2016
The property was amazing, myself and five friends had the best weekend ever, It was like a home from home. We stayed at the property and chilled out in the hot tub. The owners and Best of Wales provided us with everything we needed.Friends from Caerffili - 19th September 2016
I loved it there so much I can honestly say it's the loveliest place I've been in this country. So relaxing, beautiful surroundings. Very friendly down to earth people who owned the cottage. Will definitely be going back. You don't need to go anywhere, the place itself has amazing views.Helen from Cardiff - 16th June 2016
3 night break in an area of Wales we did not know, allowing us to visit friends and to bring our dog with us. Seriously we had everything we needed. Our hosts were very friendly and the accommodation offered all it advertised, even a hot tub.
Tips - Drive over the Epynt as the view is fantastic.Couple from Warwickshire - 16th June 2016

A memorial stone to Llywelyn ap Gruffudd was erected on the site in 1956 and serves as the focal point for the annual remembrance day.

The cottage is situated close to the Royal Welsh Showground, the Elan Valley Dams and an excellent 18 hole golf course.
