Immaculately clean – could not fault. So comfy beds. Lovely views from property. Elan Valley a must. Claerwen Dam had a spectacular walk on the byway (top of dam). Old mountain roads are stunning. Powis Castle also lovely too. Brilliant walk from Pen Y Garreg to Craig Goch, really lovely to have a full size fridge/freezer, especially as staying for 2 weeks. Dressing tables us both bedrooms very nice too- thank you.
Alli & Rash.
Thank you very much for your hospitality, we can see you have thought of everything!
We have had a wonderful week here at the cottage.
The Elan Valley was absolutely stunning, had a nice day at Aberystwyth beach too.
Mike & Zoe.
Brilliant rest – cottage very clean and well equipped. Great hosts – we you every bit of patience with your new dog.

Thank you for such a lovely weekend. The cottage is perfect and we would love to come back again.
Lovely hosts very friendly & helpful.

Absolutely brilliant stay- thank you.
Discovered the wonderful nature reserve (out of here & turn left) and the skinny dipping site directly opposite entrance -over bridge and turn left!! Jet took her collar off for that one.
Mark & Jet.
It was a good stay. Enjoyed staying.
Nice place to stay and visit the places around.
Enjoyed. Very beautiful place.
A very lovely cottage, well equipped, clean and welcoming. We were here to attend a wedding, didn’t see much of the local area. But the views are stunning, So we must try to get back some time.
Thank you Grace.
Eric & Pat.
Really comfortable cottage and friendly welcome. Beautiful area! Thank you.
This has been the perfect base for our week’s stay The cottage has every amenity we could wish for and is warm, clean and comfortable. The owners were both really friendly and offered great advice on where to visit.
There is so much to do that a week wasn’t long enough.
Gary, Michelle & Hope.
Perfect base for all the walks we could ever want.
Clean, warm, comfortable, lovely owners.
Kate, Ian, Molly & Pete (+ Tess GR).

A lovely stay in a beautiful area. The cottages lovely and clean, well equipped and obviously thought about. We have had a wonderful time and would return in the future.
A great place to look after our grandson. Lovely view, very clean, comfy bed! We had a great weekend.
James, Rachel, Mark & Georgina.
So relaxing to stay somewhere clean (very)!
Thank you both for that. We know the area well and “day trip” here but its so nice to find somewhere clean, comfortable and central to all the walks we love.

Thank you for your kindness re Covid and our needs, it’s not over despite what Johnson says 🙂
(A comment left by one of our younger guests.)
Thanks for a lovely week at Elan Cottage. We thought it was lovely how there was hot chocolate, teas, coffee, sugar, cake, milk. The kitchen we thought was very well equipped. It was very nice how there was films, books and games to play.
It is a lovely view from outside looking across the fields, it was also spectacular view from the main bedroom. It was a relief not to have to take a bag of wet towels and flannels home with us because there was towels and flannels here.
There is stunning views from the top of the hill just be careful coming down as it is very steep and bumpy and you can very badly hurt yourself.
Louise, Charlie, Emily and Jess.
Great cottage! We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I loved the early morning display on the bird feeder outside the kitchen window. So many birds.
Red Kite feeding centre is well worth a visit. The Elan Valley dams are very interesting.
Took the kids to Zip World which gave us chance to explore further afield.
Thank you for a lovely stay!
Jonny, Niky, Holly, Ivy & Ted the GSD.
A beautifully presented and clean, comfortable cottage.
Had a great time visiting Devil’s Bridge, the dams, Bwlch Nant for Red Kite feeding time and the beautiful and restful Gilfach Nature Reserve. Thank you for all the little extras including eggs, biscuit and cake.
Anne and Stephen.
Well-presented cottage with stunning views from every window – superbly well located for mid-Wales; Elan Valley, Welsh west coast and Snowdonia. Information packs really useful and Adrian a font of knowledge on
local attractions, including shaded walks during a heatwave!
Elan Valley, Hafod Estate, Hafren Forest, Gilfach reserve and Aberdovey all worth a visit – enjoyed by the dog as much as the humans!
A wonderful stay – many thanks.
Claire, Richard & Pixie.
Day 1. Fabulous day at Red Kite feeding centre in Rhayader & visit to Elan Valley visitor centre to plan cycle trip.
Day 2. Cycled Elan Valley. One day not enough so will do more later in the week.
Day 3. Aberystwyth via Devil’s Bridge. Nice day and the cliff railway is essential. Or if you are energetic walk up the path.
Day 4. Gilfach nature reserve walk. Look for rock carvings, picnic at old farm building. Take plenty of water if hot, about 3.5 miles. Llandrindod Wells in afternoon for a relaxing cuppa and piece of cake and Victorian fronted shops. Call at Aldi for food and wine.
Day 5. Back to Elan Valley 20 mile circular cycle ride to top of valley and return via Rhayader. Lovely day and finished at Elan Visitor Centre for tea and a piece of cake.
A lovely holiday in a fantastic location. Thank you to Adrian & Grace – perfect hosts & accommodation is superb.
Carol & Greg.
Fun and challenging to climb up Snowdon and grateful to finish!
Anastasia, Alexey, Katia.
We had a really great stay – thank you so much!
This wonderful “home” – every detail above all expectation, comfort, décor, fittings & equipment, sparkling everywhere as if new. A welcome retreat to return to each evening after a hard day’s walking.
The locality, views, walks, nature reserves & above all the friendly welcome of Grace, Adrian & Ryan, made this a holiday to remember.
Mair & Joan.
Great stay and thank you for making us feel so welcome in this super cottage. Grace & Adrian went the extra mile, lovely eggs, dog treats & bara brith. Thank you.
We spent the week walking in Elan Valley & surrounds – stunning.
Grace suggested we visited Gilfach nature reserve – what a place – dog (on lead) friendly.
Take care if you attempt the walk at Llangurig out of the Kittiwake book – signs have gone & 3 farms with dogs.
Thanks again for everything.
Mike & Sue.
Great walks, stunning views and overall an incredible stay in Elan Cottage. Devil’s Bridge is the place to check out, lovely walk with a preceding flight of stairs and a curving bridge. And a beautiful waterfall.
Duncan, Kate, Barnaby and Nathaniel.
Stunning location, lovely cottage, very relaxing and comfortable stay.
We had a great new year which will have very good memories staying with good friends.
David / Scott, Richard / Pete.
We spent a very nice Xmas in Elan Cottage. Thank you Grace and Adrian for your hospitality. You made our stay really special with all the nice seasonal touches. Thank you, merry Christmas and happy new year.
Olga & Co.
Thank you for a comfortable stay in Elan Cottage . We found it very relaxing and a great base for exploring the area. Lester the dog loved the sheep outside.
Gareth, Hanna and Lester the Border Collie.
Thank you Grace and and Adrian for the welcome treats and for being so helpful.
We’ve enjoyed the the cottage, which is excellent. So well equipped; and and love the view thru our kitchen window and the daily visits of the sheep.
The area around is absolutely superb: the Elan dams spectacular, the Llyn Clywedog dam & lead mine ruins were very interesting. Lots of tearooms in the area. Lovely historical buildings in Llanidloes. We found people about were so friendly. Several trails on the Wye Valley walk, where we spotted a red kite soaring above us, were favourites.
Our last day here was spent at Gilfach Nature Reserve towards Rhayader & was unforgettable. Well worth a visit. The views from the top were superb! The weather has been unbelievably good for October. We’d definitely like to return to this lovely part of Wales.
Love – John & Marion.
Hey Grace and Adrian.
Thanks again for for a wonderful week on the craggy hillside in the middle of nowhere. We managed to survive against the odds and mostly by catching and eating our own fish. Dad and I will be back for another week of hillside survival skills soon…
You guys rock!
James & Geoff.
We had a wonderful restful time here at Elan Cottage. Beautiful area to explore. Cottage cosy & clean. Our second time at Wye View cottages and it will definitely be a place we will return to.
Rob & Loraine & Evie the dog.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at Elan cottage. Everything has been lovely. The cottage is cosy and comfortable. It is ideally day situated for exploring the local area.
We went to Gigrin to see the red kites being fed. We also went to the Elan Valley. On the last day we went to Brecon, then up in the National Park where we saw several more Red Kites, always an inspiring sight.
We shall return home with many happy memories, Maria to Plymouth and myself to the Staffordshire Moorlands.
By the way, we do have a very few red kites in the moorlands and hope they will increase in time.
Thank you for everything.
Mary and Maria.
Such a lovely Cottage in lovely surroundings. Thoroughly enjoyed our week here!
Very welcome tea, coffee, cake & milk provided on arrival. Beautiful fresh eggs too which were a treat. Buddy loved his doggy pack treats too!
We visited Elan Valley – stunning + very close, Hafod Estate, Hafren Forest and Gilfach Nature reserve. All beautiful with amazing walks and views to behold.
We had takeaways from Raj Mahal & Evans Fish & Chips – both delicious & stayed hot. Drinks at the Mount Inn of an evening were good.
Overall a great time had – thank you so much! 🙂
Anna + Marc + Buddy.
We have had an absolutely fantastic stay at Elan Retreat & have fallen in love with the cottage. The cottage is lovely & clean and has everything you need.
We enjoyed exploring the local area & can recommend visiting Merlin Meirion Mill, Bryntail Lead Mine buildings, a highlight was visiting all of the Dams! Amazing views! Devil’s Budge & waterfalls is also stunning… not far on is Aberystwyth and is well worth a visit to see the Castle & have some lovely seafood.
Thank you so much Grace and Adrian for a lovely peaceful stay and we hope to see you again some time soon.
Jez and Rachael & Daisy 🐾
Thank you for a comfortable stay in Elan Cottage. We appreciated the lovely details and having the sheep & birds for company.
Places we explored were: Elan Valley, we will have to return in the winter to see dams overflowing. The open day was interesting, thanks for the tip, Adrian! Great biking and play area.
We loved the gardens at Powis Castle and the interiors are very impressive. The Yew Walk is amazing.
The Centre for Alternative Technologies near Machynlleth was an interesting diversion for half a day – great vege café and the kids loved the funicular. We stopped at the beach at Borth at low tide to explore the petrified forest.
Gilfach nature reserve was beautiful today with heather and harebells at their best.
Two mad Marilyn baggers enjoyed a good holiday at this cottage. Thanks to Adrian and Grace for a comfortable and well equipped cottage to rest our weary legs. Some excellent walks in better than expected weather. A highlight being the ascent of Pumlumon Fawr from the Nant-Y-Moch reservoir. A recommended walk for moderate level hiking (small amount of navigational skill could be required in poorer conditions). The ill-advised extension to Banc Llechwedd-Mawr only recommended to those of stern disposition and a high threshold for pain! For those who enjoy a full body-taxing fight through waist-high bracken, tackling Carn Gefallt will tickle that particular urge. More sensibly an ascent of Garreg-Lwyd gives nice views of both the hills and valleys and for wind turbine enthusiasts (I joke not – it was quite interesting and a straight-forward road most of the way). Overall a very enjoyable holiday and unusually for Wales, no requirement for waterproof trousers!
Peter and Angharad.
Fabulous cottage, very well equipped., Great days out locally – don’t miss Elan Valley.
Lion Royal do great pony treks.
If you like Indian food the Spice Hut was delicious.
Dogs & kids happy 😀
Wonderful couple of nights in your gorgeous clean cottage – we loved just being here, enjoying the views & the added bonus of amazing weather. Thank you so much.
Usha, Fiona, Olive.
We’d wanted to thank you dearly for our wonderful cosy stay with fantastic views from the windows!
It’s a great location for visiting central Wales, but also close enough to explore places further afield like Snowdonia and Aberystwyth. We’ll remember this place for a long time.
Isabela & Archie
What an amazing cottage! Well equipped and very cozy. Beautiful views framed from the windows.
Lots to see and do in the surrounding area. Really pretty countryside, even in the rain – so much better in the sunshine!
Elan Valley a must, and a great day in Aberystwyth.
Thanks to Grace & Adrian who are the perfect hosts.
Millie our border collie enjoyed her stay and thanks for the treats left.
Jenny & Allan, & Millie 🐾
Great week stopping @ Elan Cottage. Warm welcome from Grace with a bowl of freshly laid eggs – a superb cottage with everything clean & comfortable.
A great base to explore – days out @ Aberystwyth, Elan Valley & the Dams. Great food @ Red Lion Llanidloes and Lamb & Flag Rhayader.
Great views from the cottage window on a relax day.
Andy, Maureen, Riley.
Thank you for a great week at Elan Cottage – we felt very well looked after and really loved the eggs!
Beautiful surroundings ad amazing field to the side, and gorgeous flowers around the cottages.
We loved Rhayader – very nice pool, park and shops (and ice cream!) The kites were great.
Aberystwyth not far away with lots to do, and pony trekking was a highlight (Lion Royal Inn).
A quiet relaxing break (and to celebrate a birthday) away from Birmingham. Weather has been mixed although oddly our best day was probably our first tour of Elan Valley when it was pretty miserable. We are very Covid conscious so brought all our food with us and didn’t eat out anywhere although we had an ice cream at Ynyslas (Borth) and got a delicious wholemeal loaf from the PO + shop at Llangurig.
We’ve had a lovely stay in a warm, comfy home from home with everything we could need. Thank you Grace & Adrian for the delicious eggs! I’m going to miss the clean air!
Laurence, Heather & Jo.
Lovely stay, Grace & Adrian super hosts, relaxing and much needed restful break. Bird song & green fields food for the soul.
Cottage beautiful catering for every need.
Ozzy enjoyed the free treats – one happy dog.
Us from Manchester.
Thank you Adrian & Grace for your warm welcome. The cottage is very well equipped and spotlessly clean with such attention to detail, we so enjoyed the welcome pack especially the bara brith – yum!
We enjoyed exploring the local area , we loved the Elan Valley, Gilfach nature reserve, river walks to Rhayader and the beautiful gardens at Powis Castle. There’s loads more to explore and we would have to come again as the cottage is perfect, even having its own wildlife with birds feeding by the windows all day – fabulous!
Paul & Wendy.
P.S. Thanks for the eggs too!
We had a week of excellent weather (tho’ not the best for fishing!) in this lovely cottage. The lovely views & most helpful hosts have helped make this an enjoyable visit.
Geoff & James.
A very pleasant surprise to find a gem of a cottage, everything perfect and really appreciated the beverage tray & fresh eggs – had great days out in Elan Valley, the kite feeding park and Aberystwyth. Hope to return in the future.
Lee, Bev, Grace & Ty.
How fortunate I was, to discover Wye View and Elan Cottage was open to visitors after a long spell of going nowhere:- what a perfect place to spend some time away from ‘it’ all and in the most hospitable of circumstances.
Myself and my 2 grandchildren (10 & 5) have thoroughly enjoyed EVERYTHING that Adrian & Grace have to offer here. Thank-you both so much, for such a warm and heartfelt welcome.
I am fairly certain we will visit again.
Linda, Mackai & Aran.
Perfect, what more can we say, weather not the best!! but loved coming “home”. Really appreciated how clean everything was, that takes hard work – so
“Thank you very much.”
The [removed for privacy] sisters.
Thank you so much for a wonderful cottage. Elan is comfortable and cosy and very well equipped.
We’ve had a fantastic stay, exploring the Elan Valley, Devils Bridge and walks along the Wye river.
The views from the cottage are amazing and we loved seeing the birds whilst we washed up.
Jenson loved the doggy treats you left for him.
Fiona, Matthew & Jenson (the cockapoo).
Thank you very much for a wonderful cottage to enjoy our stay in Mid Wales. Walk to the source of the Severn, Gentleman’s Walk and a long walk around one of the reservoirs made the stay memorable. The fantastic weather helped. But returning to a cottage was the icing on the cake.
It was the small things in the cottage like the torch which made it extra special.
John & Karen
And Izzy (I loved the garden and field and the biscuits you put out for me. XX)
Thank you for all you have done to make our stay so enjoyable. Arriving at a spotlessly clean cottage immediately made us feel at ease. Everything you could need is here and extras like milk, biscuits, cake etc. were a lovely surprise and so tempting we ate them all!
We will definitely recommend Wye View Cottages to anyone who asks about accommodation in Mid Wales. Thank you for housing our bikes in a safe place too.
John and Veronica.
Thank you both for a wonderful stay at Elan Retreat. The cottage is lovely, clean and comfortable with everything you could need. A nice touch is to have a few basics on arrival like milk, tea, coffee, biscuits etc.
We have not been to visit Mid Wales before but we have had a fabulous time exploring Elan Valley, Aberystwyth.
Our dog Ralphy has also had a great time exploring Wales. We would definitely recommend Wye View to our friends. A great choice for all!
Thank you once again!
Louise, Iain, Elanor & Ralphy – cockerpoo!
We all fell in love with the cottage, well-equipped and absolutely spotless.
Enjoyed The Devil’s Bridge and Gilfach nature reserve – the dog trotted up the hills and steps like a mountain goat!
Our favourite day out was the Aberdyfi beach; a real unspoilt gem and we even had some sunshine whilst watching a storm at sea.
Good meal at the Crown Inn Rhayader and also a tasty takeaway from Mirchi (but huge portions!)
Had a windy kayaking tour at Elan Valley, hard work but well worth it to get so close to the dam.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Wye View.
Rebecca, Neil, Isabella & Noah (and Nettles the dog)
What a great place! Very comfortable, well-equipped & great views & wildlife.
Thank you for all your tips on places to visit (& the eggs were fab!)
Maggie & Pete.
We’ve had a fantastic stay. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. We really enjoyed watching the sunset behind the hills. We’ve done lots of walking and cycling and even had a dip in the sea!
Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable, it was just what we all needed.
Helen, Tony, Sam & Hazel.
Thank you Grace and Adrian for a lovely week. Cottage delightful, area amazing – a perfect place to stay. Will be back!
Jean and Colin.
Wonderful cottage, area and hosts. The welcome pack was much appreciated, especially the bara brith.
So many places to explore, but the path around sugar loaf and the Elan Valley drive were outstanding.
For a snack we would recommend the Swan Tea Rooms in Rhayader.
Diolch yn Fawr, Grace & Adrian.
Christine & Bill
Thank you Grace & Adrian.
We had a very enjoyable stay in Elan Cottage again, as we have stayed here several times.
This being our 40th Wedding Anniversary was a very special stay, revisiting places like Elan Valley, Gilfach nature reserve and Corris Craft. Loved to see the chickens outside the kitchen window, and they lay fantastic eggs which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Elaine & Phil (+Breeze & Wilfred).
Thank you Grace & Adrian. Perfect place to stay while we have been supervising a Girl Guide DofE Gold Expedition.
Everything we needed in the cottage. Have discovered non-existent footpaths and been to places I doubt few have ventured! Apart from that we all have enjoyed the magnificent scenery and red kites.
Hope to return again.
David, Rachel & Rachel.
Dear Grace, Thanks for the nice stay. Lovely place. Will come again. Thank you.
Stephen, Caroll & friends.
Thank you Grace – what a perfect place to stay! Your attention to detail left us wanting for nothing. We used this lovely cottage to explore the Elan Valley + will certainly recommend Elan Cottage to our friends and family. The level of quality was spot on, lovely comfortable beds, nice linen, carpets + towels. Kitchen has everything needed for a 3 night stay.
We really enjoyed the Vale of Rheidol train to Aberystwyth – spectacular views through the stunning countryside. This was matched by the scenery and views through the Elan Valley and the 5 reservoirs / dams – another MUST SEE for all.
Ate at the Triangle Inn twice for dinner and LOST ARK cafe for lunch – both highly recommended. All in all a perfect 3 days despite all the rain in Mid August.
Will be back!
Keith & Val.
We had a great stay in the cottage. Grace gave us a lovely welcome and information about the area. We had a great walk at Elan Valley, with a nice lunch at the tearoom. The kite feeding at Bwlch Nant Yr Arian was impressive, the birds stayed for a long time after the feeding. Grace suggested Hafod for a nice walk and great views and it was fabulous!
Thanks for everything.
Wil, Sjaak, Jan & Gianne.
It’s been a lovely place from where to explore the beautiful countryside. Grace made us feel very welcome and we have had everything we needed. Thank you very much. The dogs agree. Woof woof.
Julie, Alexander, Rosie, Tilly & Archie
Very pleasant, fully enjoyable week.
Last minute booking for the weekend. Grace and Adrian were so welcoming! Amazing location and views, cottage very cosy and beds wonderfully comfortable.
Would definitely stay again!
Jodi, Martin, Sylvia & Ian.
Stunning views, welcoming owner. Sheep through the kitchen window kept us company while we cooked!
Lovely cozy cottage, would definitely stay again.
Stephen & Alec.
Lovely, comfortable stay in Elan Cottage. We saw lots of blue tits, great tits and robins from the perfectly placed windows. Beautiful views too, of course.
Philippa, Michael, Ciaran and Josie
Thank you so much for having us in your beautiful cottage for the weekend. It’s a fantastically furnished little place and if we are back fishing this way I’m sure we will be booked back in here. Shame about the weather making the fishing poor but waking up to the snowy Cambrian Mountains was wonderful.
Thank you once again,
Peter and Nick.
Great base for exploring Mid Wales and the coast. The walk by Llyn Clywedog (as per leaflet in folder) was lovely – about the right length for our 7 + 10 year olds.
Elan Valley visitor centre was a warm haven in between nature trails. Aberdovey beach was busy on New Year’s Day. It was bright and relatively warm, even mild enough for ice cream.
Elan is cosy and well equipped – thank you for your hospitality.
Gill, Jimmy, Anna, Zeb.
Old Swan Cafe in Rhayader really good for food and cakes. Nice curry at Raj Mahal. Glengower Hotel at the North End of Aberystwyth was great. We only went in because we were so cold but good food & beer. Druid Inn at Goginan on the way to Aber is a good pub. 43 years in the Good Beer Guide!
Here, the kitchen is the best equipped of any self-catering place I’ve stayed in.
Super stay in Elan cottage comfy beds and great places to explore. The Triangle in Rhayader does the best hot chocolates. We also went to Rhayader swimming pool which was great fun and walking around the dams it was a bit chilly but still amazing views.
My favourite place we went to was Aberdovey beach where we had ice creams even though it was cold.
Lovely stay with wonderful welcome as always!
Thank you very much! Be sure to come back again.
Elaine, Simone & 🐕 Tonie.
A great place to stay for exploring the area. The beds were extremely comfy!!
Everything you need for a short stay. Thanks!
Beautiful views even on a drizzly weekend in November.
Such a lovely cottage – a real home from home! The location is stunning – opening the curtains each morning to admire the view!!
We’ve explored Elan Valley and Hafren Forest – some great suggestions from Grace.
We will be planning our next trip!
Henry, Alexandria & Seth.
This is our 10th year (on and off) staying at Wye View Cottages and they just get better and better; thank you Adrian & Grace.
We recommend Gilfach nature reserve as a place to visit, it is quite simply breathtaking. Looking forward to the next 10.
Paul, Lorraine, Jennifer & Twist 🐕.
Adrian & Grace.
Thank you for your fantastic hospitality! X
An amazing location, beautiful + comfortable cottage.
Will definitely be back XX
Marie + Dave
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, caring nature and information. We had a great time, we will be back next year.
Susie, Wayne, Joseph & Millie Moo.
Thanks for a wonderful stay. Lovely cottage, kind and knowledgeable hosts, great venue from which to explore.
Our favourite trips were to Aberystwyth beach, New Quay to see dolphins, the Red Kite feeding station, Elan Valley dams and Devil’s bridge.
Raman, Neenu & Josh. X
What a lovely cottage. We’ve really enjoyed our stay here. Comfy beds and beautiful views. Thank you for such a warm welcome.
Yasmin, Jon & James.
We had a nice time in Wales and really enjoyed the stay at Elan Cottage. The beds were especially comfortable 🙂
We look forward to coming again.
from Charlotte (with Tim, Tammy, Ben) X X
Such a fantastic, cosy, comfy cottage. We have had a really lovely week here and even the weather played ball. The welcome tray was a lovely touch, the cake went down a treat.
Adrian and Grace were great hsots and were very kind to leave a bottle of water, lighter and a kettle when we woke up to a power cut and no water.
Will miss the beautiful views.
Also thank you for the bag of dog treats for Domino 🙂
Abby, Adrian, Ross, baby bump + Domino
We returned for another round of Elan cycling and it was even better than 2017. The weather! We had blue skies and no wind all day. Beautiful. Thank you for the lovely accommodation with lots of little comforts; well-equipped kitchen, snacks, TV, fluffy towels and sheep alarm clocks. We’ll be back.
Tom, Jack, Tim & Dan
Everything perfect – enough said.
Jackie & Michael + Bruce
This, our second visit here, was just as warm and welcoming as our first.
A very welcoming hospitality tray, including dog’s nibbles and help and information from Grace & Adrian.
Cottage spotless & whole accommodation worth the 4 stars it has been awarded. Plus the eggs!
Beautiful surroundings and great walks within a fairly short distance.
We may well be here again, inshallah!
Geoff & Janet, Portia.
We had such a lovely time. Thanks Grace for the eggs and all the ideas to seek out around Wales. We wnet walking, cycling, and even boating on a canal at Brecon Park. Thank you to Adrian & Jonathan for looking after our bikes and repairing a puncture. Hospitality 100%.
Paul & Amanda
A lovely cottage with stunning views. Grace took our daughter to see the chickens and she came back with some eggs 🙂
Excellent condition and extremely clean.
Elan dam was beautiful and a drive to the others is well worth a trip.
Local pubs are good for food too!
Will definitely be back in the summer.
Norah, Simon, Martha & Francesca
We have a lovely couple of days here. Grace was very welcoming, the biscuits & dog biscuits & treats were a nice touch.
Pristinely clean! & stunning views.
We really enjoyed out trip to Elan Dam, lovely part of Wales.
Thank you very much.
Mia, Darren, Sian, Cale & Baby Reuben & Tara (the dog!)
Thank you for a very comfortable stay in a beautifully kept cottage. Amazing views over the valley! A bonus to wake up to a “snowy” scene in April!!
A special thank you for looking after Bonnie whilst we ventured to Corris for a trip to King Arthur’s caves.
We will definitely recommend “Wye View”.
Kate, Chris, Luke, Daniel and Bonnie the dog.
PS: it was very warm and cosy – Daniel.
Dear Adrian 7 Grace,
Very many thanks for a wonderful weekend. The cottage was a lovely surprise – spotlessly clean, comfortable beds & a much appreciated welcome pack of tea, coffee, biscuits & milk – thank you!! We’ve enjoyed seeing the birds and sheep (and hens!) outside our windows.
We can highly recommend Hafod for walks (turn left at Devil’s Bridge) & the Angel Hotel in Llanidloes for dinner – it was fabulous but book a table!!
It’s been a really great visit – thank you!!
Sue, Paul, Jonny & Esteban.
Fantastic location, amazing cottage and lovely hosts. Would love to return and will recommend to friends.
Janet & Barry.
Had a wonderful stay with lovely hosts. Cottage is clean, cosy and comfortable with everything we needed.
The views are amazing and Alfie enjoyed his morning run up and down the hill.
Would love to come back again in the future and will be recommending to friends and family.
Tania, Adrian & Alfie the dog xx.
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.
Graham, Ulla, Mark, Thomas & Jessie
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.
Julie, Dean & Jess.
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 🙂
Chris, Corinne, Harry (7) + Isabelle (3).
Had a lovely visit, wonderful surroundings. We will definitely be coming back!
Thanks for everything!
Simone, Elaine + Antonia.
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.
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!
Dave + Andrea + Macey.
Lovely cottage and great hosts. Beautiful area and sad to leave!
Had some lovely days out while the weather held.
Kevin , Brenda & Polly.
Very nice hosts – great cottage & lovely weather 24 degree C!
Dave & Sue, Jessica & Andy & Finley.
Very nice stay in your cottage even it is was for one night.
Beautiful view in the morning and we loved the chicken and sheep sight out of the window. Thank you for the treats laid out also.
