Wye 14th March 2020

Loved Wye Cottage at first sight. We had a very warm welcome and tour of the cottage as well as treats. The cottage is super clean and comfortable. We came to meet up with family so the non stop Welsh rain did not upset us.

Will definitely recommend and hope to visit again.

Thanks for your hospitality.

Perfect few days in this beautiful, cosy perfectly equipped cottage. A lovely warm helpful welcome from Grace. Thanks for the delicious eggs. Views are beautiful.

We will be recommending to our family & friends and will be returning very soon.

Loved every minute. Enzo loved his treats, thank you.

We highly recommend the Mirchi Indian in Rhayader. We collected a takeaway, excellent food.

Thank you X 🙂

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.

Elan 5th September 2019

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.

Wye 26th August 2019

Thank you for a lovely few days away! The cottage is well equipped and we had great information about what to do and where to go. Having the travel cot and highchair were such a great help so we didn’t have to travel with them 🙂

The bed is VERY comfortable!

The cottage is set in lovely surroundings. We visited Aberystwyth, Elan Valley, Llandrindod Wells, Gilfach Nature Reserve and Rhayader.

Thanks again – Diolch.

Rob, Becca & Millie.

We will definitely be back again!

Elan 17th August 2019

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.

Elan 9th August 2019

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.

Hafren 8th August 2019

My two teenage sons and I have just completed a four night stay in Hafren Cottage. It was really lovely and cosy, and it was spotlessly clean. The shower had good pressure and was lovely and hot. The beds were really comfy and all three of us agreed that the duvets were super snuggly (in fact I invested in some as soon as we got home!)

The cottage had everything we needed in a really beautiful location. The added bonus of sheep in the field next to us, and seeing a chicken or two peering in at us through our cottages window, made for some fabulous photo opportunities!

Thank you Grace and Adrian for having us and being so accommodating.

Severn 13th July 2019

What a lovely area to stay, cottage is just what you need, equipped with all you could possibly want. We have visited the Elan Valley, walked to the dams, found a lovely tea room just reopened at Easter.

The information centre at Elan Valley was very good, the people very helpful.

Managed to avoid cooking all week there are lots of places to eat and the local takeaways as well that Grace has left details of.

What more can I say, lovely place and lovely people.

Thank you.

Nick & Tina.

Hafren 25th June 2019

It was wonderful staying at Wye View and exploring beautiful Mid Wales! The places which stand out (which we will take in our memories to our parts of the world) are: Aberystwyth, Elan Valley and the Red Kite story at Bwlch Nant Yr Arian .

Thank you Grace and Adrian for your recommendations and your hospitality!

Penny, Craig, Colin, Gergina.

Severn 7th June 2019

Very many thanks to Grace & Adrian for making our stay so enjoyable. We greatly appreciated the milk, tea, coffee and biscuits that you provided for us. The cottage was lovely and just what we wanted – so comfortable! … Your advice, both person to person and in your guide book was so helpful. Thanks so much for everything.

Alison & Chris

Severn 10th May 2019

The attention to detail, numerous generous surprise extras and warm welcome received by Grace and Adrian after a long journey have made this by far the best holiday cottage we have stayed in. From start to finish nothing was too much trouble and we will certainly be recommending it.

We will be leaving with very happy memories including being here on the coldest Bank Holiday recorded in May. Woke to discover snow on high ground on Sunday!!

Many thanks again Grace and Adrian for all your kindness.

Joyce, Chris and Meg.

Hafren 5th May 2019

I stayed in this beautiful cottage for two weeks during my elective placement as a third year student midwife. Grace has been extremely generous and accommodating throughout my stay and has made me feel so welcome. The cottage is lovely and in the most beautiful location.

The cottage has everything I needed for a comfortable and cosy two week stay. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and would love to return here for a holiday someday!

Thank you Grace & Adrian XXX

Hafren 14th April 2019

We have really enjoyed our week here. The cottage is lovely, so clean and with everything we needed to make our stay very comfortable.

We loved Hafren forest, did the 7 mile walk. Aberystwyth was lovely too, we ended up there twice as the weather was lovely, albeit cold!

Kids enjoyed The Silver Mountain Experience. Powis Castle (National Trust) was also a great day out. So much to do in the area.

Fiona & family.

Wye – 12th April 2019

A perfect stop-gap on our way to Snowdonia. My wife and I both went to university in Aberystwyth and met there 20 years ago. Have travelled this road 100 times but it is the first time we have stayed here to appreciate its beauty fully.

Elan Valley is a must – water like mirrors. And our 5 year old son loved playing in the stream.

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.

Elan 4th January 2019

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.

Enjoy!

Jimmy.

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.

From Anna.

Severn 28th December 2018

We received a lovely welcome from our hosts even though we arrived a little early. The cottage was scrupulously clean with little extras like towels, shower gel and cleaning products. We had a lovely welcome pack with our favourite choccies and Strudel our dog had a bag of surprises too. We were given excellent information on the area which are highly recommended to future guests. We both slept like logs in the really comfy bed and the whole ambience of Severn Cottage was delightful. 3 cheers to two excellent hosts, and a big woof from Strudel. X.

Thank you, Grace &Adrian for a great stay here at Wye View. We pretty much think the same as most of your other guests who have left reviews in this book. The cottage is a good base to stay to explore so many lovely places here in the Wye Valley and beyond. This really was a home from home and the week just went too fast!

Pete & I managed to recharge our batteries and Dotty our Jack Russell had lots of lovely walks.

We had a lovely week. Very cosy & comfortable cottage and clean & well equipped. We were so lucky with the weather and did some fantastic walks with amazing views & scenery. Plynlimon, coast path between Borth & Wallog (saw dolphins and choughs!), and wonderfully peaceful but strenuous walk around the “green desert” near the Elan reservoirs. Red kite feeding centre was well worth the visit too – spectacular.

Thanks – we hope to return again soon!

Hafren 27th August 2018

Beautiful cottage, cosy and comfortable and we had a very warm welcome from Grace. Would highly recommend to our friends and family 🙂

The only criticism is that check-out could have been later than 10am – maybe 12 mid day…

Surbjit, Paul, James & Joshua.

Note: we have a 10am checkout to allow us time to clean the cottage for guests arriving the same day. But if we aren’t expecting another guest, you are welcome to stay longer – just ask!

Grace & Adrian.

Hafren 24th August 2018

We had a very enjoyable stay in your beautiful cottage. The cottage was well equipped, clean and cosy., everything needed to enjoy a few days from home.

We had great fun exploring the Elan Valley and we enjoyed a trip to Devil’s Bridge. Than you very much for accommodating us at such short notice.

Many thanks,

The “Fish family” X

Wye 11th August 2018

Had a wonderful week’s stay in your beautiful, well equipped cottage. Lovely surroundings, stunning scenery. Elan Valley & mountain drive over to Devil’s Bridge fabulous!

Thanks for your warm hospitality, cake & treats for Lily. We will certainly return again. Thanks!

Had a wonderful week.

Severn 11th August 2018

Lovely, cottage, well equipped, spotlessly clean and the most comfortable bed.

Many things to do locally, and a bit further afield. Aberdyfi our favourite coastal day out. Sasha is exhausted, and so are we. Local dog walk opposite The Black Lion in Llangurig. DOwn the lane and walk by the river.

Farewell Mid-Wales. Super welcome from Grace and Adrian, thank you for having us.

P.S. Don;t miss King Arthur’s Labyrinth, Silver Mountain, Clywedog and Aberdyfi.

Severn 7th July 2018

Had a lovely stay in Severn Cottage. Adrian and Grace are lovely too with lots of ideas where to visit and places to travel to. We used the cottage as a base to go and explore from but we found it so comfortable I must admit to being lazy and sitting outside drinking beer and watching the view. Lots of birds on the bird feeders and red kites, buzzards above. Some spectacular views not far away, was spoilt because we had great weather too. Thanks Adrian & Grace.

Stan the whippet enjoyed it too. X

Wye 30th June 2018

After a very traumatic past six months we felt that we really needed a holiday where we could relax and unwind, and here we have done just that.

The cottage is beautiful and you have though of everything.

Thank you for a lovely holiday and also for the bara brith and the biscuits.

We look forward to returning in the future.

Pat & Allan.

Severn 23rd June 2018

What a great find. The cottage exceeded our expectations. Extremely clean & modern has everything you need. Great location – amazing views. The area has a lot to offer – great walks for our pup Ziggy who got to go in the local rivers & streams and the sea. Grace & Adrian were great hosts – friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for the eggs – best tasting and so yellow!

We love this area and hope to return again.

Thanks for the great week – we have certainly relaxed & recharged our batteries. Ziggy appreciated his yummy treat bag!
