"I've stayed many times before at S21465. It's in an excellent location to literally escape to the country. The cottage is in a quiet and secluded spot on a hill and is equidistant between the Welsh borders and Welsh pool and the Snowdonia National Park and Cardigan Bay. If you're after some kind of holiday resort with lots of things to do on the door step, then this cottage would not be for you. There are no near neighbours so you will have the cottage and its immediate surrounds to yourself. It's a big and large house and has plenty of room for either family friends. The cottages offers a wonderfully quiet respite from all the stresses and strains of the modern world and it's fantastic for people who love to be immersed in the great outdoors. If you love rambling, mountain biking, bird-watching, running, cycling etc, then this would definitely be the perfect place for you.There's tonnes of walks in the surrounding area. It's an absolute walkers' paradise and the same could be said for fell runners too. There are a scattering of fairly vibrant small towns, all within around a 30 minute drive or so. Some may take up to an hour. Personal recommendations would include Welshpool, Clun, Bishop's Castle, Montgomery, Chirk, Dolgellau, Aberdyfi, Porthmadog, Portmeirion and the absolutely stunning Shrewsbury.Castles of note nearby include Powis Castle, Castell y Bere, Harlech Castle, Clun Castle and Montgomery Castle.Mountain bikers should head to the Coed-y-Brenin. There's also fantastic trails for walkers in there and lots of stunning waterfalls - Rhaeadr Mawddach and Pystyll Cain!A must on anyone's itinerary would be the Kerry Vale vineyard, near Churchstoke in Shropshire. It's opened within the last 8 years and is an English wine producing site. It has origins that date back to Roman times. There's also another English vineyard at Wroxeter, which still has impressive remains of a Roman settlement.Lake Vyrnwy is the nearest attraction, and is just a 10 minute drive away. There's a cafe and shop at the dam end of the lake and the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel offers more in the way of fine dining and so on. There's also plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants in Dolgellau, Portmeirion and to a lesser extent in Bala and Welshpool. For a wide range of places to eat, people should head to Shrewsbury. There's also some charming tea rooms in Harlech and Aberdyfi."

"S83052 cottage is very nice and well equipped and first impressions were excellent. We received a friendly welcome on arrival & welcome pack was much appreciated. Internet and TV were good.Sadly the cottage was let down by 2 things during our stay;1. Flies! (as mentioned by other guests) The owner did mention it when we arrived but we weren't quite prepared for the sheer number of them. There was fly catchers on the ceiling (one of which ended up getting caught in my wife's hair). Any time spent indoors was not enjoyable because we were swatting flies literally every 2 minutes then sweeping up all the dead flies twice a day. 2. The hot tub wasn't very clean when we arrived. It was very cloudy and there was a lot of residue (dead skin and fat I assume) arrange the edges which i wiped away. The water didn't have a reassuring chemical smell either. It looked like it required either a shock clean or emptied and re-filled. The booklet in the cottage mentioned that the hot tub is checked every morning but the condition of the water never appeared any better during our stay. We still used the hot tub but only a couple of times as it was a little off-putting. The booklet also mentions that if guests make the water cloudy then a £50 re-fill fee will be charged so with this in mind I wouldn't expect it to be cloudy when we arrive. We checked the hot tub the morning we were leaving and the water appeared to have been treated for the next guests - there was a strong smell of chemicals which was never the case for us. I assume perhaps it was not treated prior to our arrival, probably just overlooked but it was a bit of a let-down as the hot tub was one of the features of the cottage which we were particularly looking forward to.All in all, we wouldn't recommend this cottage during the summer months (unless something more effective than fly strips & swatters are implemented) but I can imagine that anyone would have an enjoyable stay here any other time of the year. Had it not been for the flies i'm sure we would have had a far more enjoyable experience. The flies were such an issue that it genuinely spoiled our stay, to the point that we wished we had stayed somewhere else. We stayed at a different cottage during the 2nd week of our holidays and had no such issues."

"S21465 is somewhere I've stayed on quite a few occasions. It's certainly worth booking for the surrounding views of the unspoilt countryside. If you want quiet seclusion with no near neighbours then this is definitely the place for you.Bala, Welshpool and Dolgellau are three of the nearest towns. They're usually buzzing with people and tourists. There's plenty of pubs and cafes in all of them. Dolgellau is perhaps the nicest of them all with its pretty old brickwork and narrow ancient streets. It's very close to the Cardigan Bay coastline and the beaches and water are clean and safe. Welshpool is good for supermarkets and shops. There's a large Tescos which stocks most of what people will need. There's a large Aldi, B&M and Morrisons too.There's lakes aplenty near the cottage. Lake Vyrnwy is a 10 minute drive and has a shaded, flat road to walk along. Bala Lake is impressive as are many others close to the Cader Idris, near Dolgellau. The Coed-y-Brenin forest is fantastic for walks, mountain-biking and for all of its waterfalls (Pystyll Cain, Rhaeadr Mawddach).Walkers will have masses of trails to explore. It's a walkers' paradise around the cottage and beyond. Southern Snowdonia is perhaps one of the most beautiful parts of all of the United Kingdom. Sites well worth checking out are Castell y Bere, Harlech Castle, Mary Jones' Chapel and Home, Portmeirion, Porthmadog, Criccieth Castle, Aberdyfi, the Centre for Alternative Technology, Coed-y-Brenin Visitors' Centre and so on.But Shropshire is also a powerful draw and there's plenty of wonderful small towns to explore such as Clun, Bishop's Castle, Much Wenlock, Chirk and Ironbridge. Shrewsbury is always a delight and has masses of cafes, restaurants and shops to explore.People should also head to the ruins of the nearby ancient Roman town of Wroxeter - it was the subject of a Channel 4 show and a replica of a Roman villa was built there. A local hotel, near the local vineyard also does authentic Roman type banquets (The Wroxeter Hotel) or good afternoon teas - whichever you prefer.There's also a small local shop and post office in the nearest village of Llwydiarth. The owner is very pleasant and amenable. There's also a small petrol station there."

"What a treasure. Holidaying with six dogs and mobility issues is never easy - cue S83098.This is a little slice of heaven for a break away from the norm. From the time you drive in and close the gate you are in a proper home complete with all the creature comforts.Positioned on a hill, the views are beautiful. The garden is big and fully enclosed and our dogs loved it. We were also lucky enough to be there when the apple tree was bearing fruit so had the added bonus of fresh cooking apples!Inside, the property is spacious and extremely well equipped, and the kitchen made cooking a lot easier with plenty of equipment, and although work space is limited, it still works very well.An excellent utility area not only allowed for us to come home without dirty laundry, but also provided a great space to feed all the dogs.The furniture is comfortable and plenty of it, so no arguments on who gets the ‘best’ seat!The bedrooms are beautiful and the beds are amazing. As a group we have never slept in such comfortable beds on holiday before. Two of our party have back issues and neither were aggravated during our two week stay. The linen is beautiful quality and the duvet and pillows clearly also excellent quality.A bathroom and walk in shower room provide for all abilities.To be fair it is a very easy place to write about hence the review!The owner, Alison, is a lovely lady and extremely efficient at responding to queries. Very obliging and the welcome gifts were superb.For those who have read previous reviews, yes you do have to drive along a country lane, but if you avoid the route direct into Crickhowell it is a lot easier. The route into Llangenny was our preferred option. There are passing points and the locals all seem very sensible driving down the road. Plus one of the local farmers sells eggs from a shed on this route!If you want a well maintained, well equipped property with superb outlook, and the option for exploration or solitude, then this is the place.Suffice it to say we rebooked for next year before we left!Thanks a million Alison."

"On arrival at the cottage there was no one to welcome us so we had to ask a neighbour who got the owner to tell us key was under log but no one came to welcome us and to let us no how everything worked also there is only a cattle grid at the opening of the cottage so if you take a dog you will have to carry them over it but you would have to be very careful as we were we did find a gate and open it that lead you onto the walk way for the dog but the owner closed it without any explanation !now the worse is FLIES we spent all week swatting them it was disgusting every time we made food you had to be quick to cover it as flies would just land on it the owner must no about this problem as it’s bern reported in previous comments but we were left nothing to tackle it It’s ok saying we’ll all we had to do is ask but If there is a problem then you have to address it we are booking the cottage we are the guests ! There is one local pub and the shop is about 3 miles down the road the other pubs are a good few miles away not a lot to do around the area but there are some nice little towns a good drive away but the FLY problem really spoilt our holiday we left a day early as we just got fed up swatting them I can’t imagine what it would be like in the summer ! The hot tub is nice but we only used it twice this is a true review of our stay and how we felt .The cottage is nice but with the problem with flies just lets it down i think like a couple of The reviews window and door screens are needed very very disappointing stay would never go back"
