We have thoroughly enjoyed our long Bank Holiday weekend in Elan Cottage. It is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. We were made to feel so welcome with coffee, tea and biscuits. Even our dog got a goodie bag. 🙂

Thank you for your advice and suggestions for things to do in the area. Our favourites were Brecon Beacons, Devil’s Bridge and Elan Valley.

After a warm welcome, we settled in to our cosy cottage. Beautiful views all mod cons we needed. Thanks for babysitting our dog Robbie, he says woof! Would come back in a heartbeat.

Thanks very much,

Michal, Mahan, Alex, Jamie and Robbie.

Adrian and Grace were very welcoming and we really enjoyed the eggs!

The cottage was spotless and had everything you could possibly need.

We would recommend Hafren Forest walk to the source of the river Severn. Elan Valley walks are also nice.

Also recommend Roberts Coffee shop is Dolgellau, a bit like stepping back in time. Gret cake selection.

For a great meal go to The Brigands Inn at the junction of the A470 & A458 near Mallwyd.

Wow! We’ve had the most fantastic few days.

Elan Valley was gorgeous and worth a visit.

Harry’s birthday request was to climb a mountain – so off we went to Pen y fan. We got to the top and the views were stunning.

Snowdonia is also amazing and worth the drive.

Adrian & Grace are so very kind and helpful and the cottage is gorgeous.

We’d love to come back 🙂

Thank you so much for your lovely welcome to us, cake, eggs & treats for Bailey & Milk. We had a lovely week staying here. The cottage has been so comfy (home from home) with everything we could have needed + such a wonderful spot + amazing views.

Bailey made a new friend with Ryan & looked disappointed if he wasn’t in the garden to say hello.

Thank you Grace & Adrian for a lovely stay.

David, Pip, Zoe & Bailey.

Elan 7th July 2017

Arrived on a sunny afternoon to this lovely cottage and beautiful part of the world. The views from the cottage are stunning! We were made most welcome by Grace & Adrian, such lovely helpful people. Our week remained dry and mostly sunny. We were so lucky with the weather and managed some great walks with our dog Macey – Elan valley & reservoirs, Hafren forest and Hafod are all worth a visit.

Would recommend these holiday cottages to friends.

Thank you both and a big thank you for our welcome pack – and Macey’s too, such a nice touch!

Very nice stay in your cottage even it is was for one night.

Elan 10th June 2017

Clean & cosy cottage – didn’t miss home at all!! Loved the welcome goodies, especially the dog treats. Bara Brith was delicious 🙂 Cracking views!!

Weather not ideal, but sunshine when it mattered. Glorious Elan Valley – once in the rain and then on bicycles in the sun!! Complete with ‘baby’ trailer for the dogs!!!

Devil’s Bridge and Mynach Falls were a great day out and it was good to see the sea at Aberystwyth – as well as a little shopping!!

The Hafod Estate has some wonderful walking, waterfalls too. Powis Castle, Mansion and gardens was a real treat.

Lovely part of the country, would definitely come back.

Sue & Mike with Scoobie & Millie.

Elan 2nd June 2017

A great short break in a very beautiful part of the country. Great walks on the Wye Valley trail and in the Elan Valley.

The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, everything necessary for a home from home.

Thank you.

Sandra & Steve.

Elan 21st May 2017

As everyone else has already said in varying words, Elan Cottage is a pure delight. We did the “home from home” sigh when we first stepped through the door. The biscuits and bara brith for us humans was a lovely touch and ‘Chin’ our dog was made up with his own goodie bag!

There are so many nice places to visit. Our most favourite place was Hafod. The walks are just magical with surprises at every turn. Definitely a “I wasn’t expecting that” place. Remember to take some supplies with you.

Aberystwyth is a brilliant town and for a driving experience the mountain road after Staylittle from Dylife to Machynlleth is pure bliss. The best road in the UK by far!!

Thank you Grace and Adrian for making our stay so memorable.

P.S. If you have a dog, don’t forget to visit Sophie Bach Coffee shop in Aberystwyth. Biscuits galore and they photograph your dog and put it on the wall.

Elan 7th May 2017

What a peaceful yet dramatic part of the world. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The ride through Elan to Machynlleth and back over the mountains was world-class! The kites … the dams … the views … the lovely people. Thank you for letting us use your lovely place as a base.

Tom, Dan, Tim, Jack.

Elan 1st May 2017

Lovely, warm, cosy place to stay.

A big thank-you to Grace & Adrian – your attention to detail is second to none! Everything we needed in terms of household facilities plus more. It felt like home from home.

Will definitely be here again, thanks again. Just perfect.

Thank you for your hospitality, especially the 2 visits to the chickens and help with our luggage in the rain!

We loved the views and had a very enjoyable stay in this clean, well-equipped, comfortable cottage.

Thank you for the recommendation to visit Elan Valley – we had a fantastic cycle round the reservoirs. We also enjoyed the waterfalls and stories at Devil’s Bridge.

We’ll have to come back to this beautiful part of Wales – still lots to see and do.

Hafren 10 September 2016

Thank you Grace & Adrian for your lovely warm welcome, and helpful advice on places to explore in the area. There are lots of nice walks through Hafren Forest, and Elan Valley, which is beautiful, and the visitor centre at Elan village has a lovely choice of cakes!

Viewing the feeding of Red Kites was a fantastic experience. Our short break went very quickly, so we will definitely come back, as there are more things we would like to see and do. Hafren cottage is very nice, cosy and well equipped, and a good central base for the area.

Stan and Jocelyn.

Elan 18 August 2016

We had a lovely stay in Elan cottage.

Arrived to biscuits and even biscuits for Cooper! This was a lovely touch. It was lovely and clean as soon as we arrived.

Grace & Adrian were very friendly, even telling us nice places to walk the pooch!

Even our baby (7 months) must have enjoyed it, having no trouble sleeping in the cot provided!

Wouldn’t hesitate to return. Thank you.

Jamie, Vicky, Spencer & Cooper (the dog).

Elan 17 July 2016

A great place to explore the area. Very friendly and welcoming.

I’m very impressed with the clean and very well laid out cottage. Kiar (dog) loved his treats and the carton of milk was the finishing touch that will make me return as you are very guest satisfaction orientated.

Thank you for a comfortable and welcoming stay.

Ciaire, Adrian & Kiar.
