Pony trekking through the area is also available and the Elan Valley Lakes offer numerous activities for a great day out.

    Mr Chris Carter, Stafford, Staffordshire
    "Super cosy comfortable accommodation, which lacked for nothing! Had very helpful owners who made sure we had everything we needed."
    Miss Ruth Ball, Newcastle upon Tyne,
    "Really lovely owners, a beautiful bed and spectacular area."
    Mr John Goddard, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk
    "This property particularly suited us, beautiful surroundings with good walks straight from the door. Perfect for exploring Rhayader and the Elan Valley. We had complete privacy if we wished, but the owners were friendly and helpful."
    Mrs Lynda Toms, Newton Abbot, Devon
    "We particularly liked this holiday because The Loft is located quite central to many lovely locations to visit within easy reach, so you're never short of somewhere to go and places to see, an absolutely stunning area to stay in. The accommodation was adequate for our needs, and liked that they accept our dogs to stay as well. The owners of the property were extremely helpful and lovely people."
    Mr Paul Thomas, Newport, Isle of Wight
    "The perfect retreat for a quiet couple wanting to get away from it all. The cottage is exactly as the photographs show it and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The surrounding Elan valley is a walkers delight with lots of good walks for all abilities and just the right amount to see and do in a week. We're not sure if we want to tell everybody - we want to keep this location secret for ourselves! Seriously though, we will be going back."
    Mr Smith, Northampton, Northamptonshire
    "A really relaxing holiday in a really beautiful area. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful. Will certainly return."
    Mrs Jurd, Exmouth, Devon
    "The Loft was just how my husband and I imagined it would be - a little piece of heaven. Peaceful and quiet, and the walks and countryside were unbelievable, the weather was just what we wanted . The owners were very welcoming and friendly but left us to ourselves with the understanding that if we needed anything at all to let them know. That also meant a lot, we were very comfortable as The Loft was well furnished, clean and had everything we could possibly need."
    , January 2012
    " The owners were very welcoming and helpfull on arrival. The accommodation was warm and comfortable despite the weather outside a real home from home. "
