    We stayed for a week in the Fern pod. As soon as we arrived we were greeted with fresh milk, flowers & eggs, prosecco and even some treats for our chihuahua who we brought along for the holiday which he obviously loved. The pod itself was really cosy and super clean! It was great having all mod cons such as a microwave and hob, fridge freezer, which helped the self catering aspect of the holiday. We ordered a Tesco delivery to arrive at the pod and it came promptly and with no issue. The views from the pod were incredible and the peacefulness of the surrounding countryside was breathtaking - with the exception of course of the sounds of wildlife. The dark nights with no light pollution allowed us to also do a bitof stargazing with our telescope that we brought with us which was a real treat! The hot tub was huge and again was super clean and easy to use. The complimentary dressing gowns were great for getting out of the hot tub and chilling on the decking in. It made it feel as though you were in your own private spa. The fire pit and barbecue were also great additions with a private space at the side of the pod to enjoy these. We had toasted marshmallows on the fire pit and a good few barbeques throughout our stay. The welcome pack that was in the pod had loads of useful info in it (much more than you get in most other places) and some great local walks which we did. We took one walk down the Radnorshire arms which is a lovely country pub with excellent home cooked food. Definitely recommend a visit! Another positive about the pod is that you are left to your own devices with no interuption from the owners - unless of course you wanted their advice / help on anything. We happened to meet Lin and also Llew on one of our walks and they were really welcoming and friendly offering advice for things to do and where to eat / walk. In summary this place was a real diamond find and we absolutely loved our stay. We were really lucky with the hot sunny weather but regardless of weather the place itself is beautiful. We will definitely be returning in the future. Thank you Lin and family for making our holiday special!

    It was cosy and had every and more that we needed. Whilst we enjoyed our time there,and the walks are beautiful, it is however a little too rural for us. And to cap it the local pub had closed for the week.
