“Lovely cottage, very child friendly”
Reviewed 26 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We have just got back from a fabulous week here, we didn't want to leave! The bed is blissfully comfortable (red room) and as I often suffer from backache, I was relieved to be able to sleep pain free.
The property is clearly geared up for families, they supplied us a lovely clean highchair and stairgates and the owners have thoughtfully included a large selection of games and books for children, as well as a draw full of videos and sky television so that even when it was throwing it down with rain, the kids were still happy.
The kitchen is well stocked, there is a dishwasher and a combined washer-drier. The fridge freezer is huge and even has an icemaker. I was so impressed with the attention to detail, we wanted for nothing - there is even a sandwich toaster. They have also included other items such as hairdriers and an electric fan to make such that all your needs are taken care of.
The owners are extremely attentive, we discovered a problem with a blocked sink when we arrived and it was immediately dealt with whilst we went out for the day and we had no further problems.
The cottage is surrounded by a little courtyard which as well as having a barbeque and lovely patio furniture, it is well away from any roads so very safe for the kids to play outside on their scooters. It was very nice for us to relax with a cup of tea and have some peace! The hot tub is great and is in a secluded position with a view out onto a large field and trees, you can nip straight out of the kitchen door so even in october, we never felt cold using it, a wonderful addition after a day sightseeing.
The property is just a short walk down a footpath into the local village of Bishops Castle where there are many shops and pubs. Our favourite pub for both value and good food was the Kings Head, they do a fab Sunday dinner with lovely fresh veg and homemade puddings.
I could write lots more, all of it positive but I will end by saying, if you are wondering whether or not to book here, do. I promise you will not regret it.

“Homely Cottage”

After reading previous reviews about this cottage we were a little concerned. However our fears were unfounded. We found the cottage spotless, well equipped, had a well maintained hot tub and the full Sky Package was a real bonus! The cottage was very warm and cosy with a lovely homely atmosphere. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Try the six bells pub and micro brewery, and the nearby Powis Arms for Sunday Lunch, very limited menu (Pork or Beef) but very good!

“Very Dirty both inside and out”

On arival told the washing Machine was broke and basically do with out or find a launderette, On having a look around we found dirt and dust everywhere, and the shower was totally disgusting, kids room was well battered and the dust on window sills and wardrobes not to mention on the four poster bed was at least an inch thick!! the garden was covered in weeds and the surrounding area was a scrap yard for the owners! Advertised as luxury and it falls way short of luxury! Hot tub was good but not working fully, owners not interested or overly helpful. Sky only in one room not all rooms, This property is in need of a good clean and some repairs made, Also in need of new or clean towels and bed linen.
