We booked a last minute break here for some much needed family time. We love the cottage and Grace and Adrian were perfect hosts. We especially loved being able to feed the chickens. We really hope to be back soon. Thank you. XXXX

(Another review from some of our younger guests.)

I had a wonderful stay. The cottage had all we needed. It was clean and tidy and the beds were so soft. Thank you for a great week!

Hafren 17th August 2019

A lovely week exploring this beautiful area. We loved Gilfach, the Elan Valley, Devil’s Bridge and the Hafren forest.

The cottage is perfect when the weather closes in.

Thank you.

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.


Hafren 2nd August 2019

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.

Hafren 7th May 2019

Thank you for our host Grace & Adrian – The cottage was just perfect – spotlessly clean with all the things you could need for your stay. The area is beautiful. On your recommendation, we visited Elan Valley, Devil’s Bridge & Bwlch Nant yr Arian to see the kites feed. Thanks again.

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.

Another comment written by one of our younger guests:

We really enjoyed the night here, it was clean & the view from the place was really nice. We loved coming! We would come again.

Rayna, Emma, Spencer, Burton.

Hafren 24th February 2019

We’ve really enjoyed our stay here – Grace is a great host, the views are amazing but not too far from the shops, pubs, etc. We particularly enjoyed the circular walks in Hafren Forest 25 minutes away. We would definitely recommend this cottage, thank you!

Adam, Caroline, George & Sam.

Hafren 20th February 2019

From one of our younger guests:

Hafren 4th November 2018

A lovely cottage, a home from home and a friendly welcome.

Would definitely stay again & recommend to friends.


Hafren 29th September 2018

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!

Mark & Lucy.

Hafren 10th September 2018

Thanks for a lovely stay! Accommodation was great, location was perfect & we’d definitely come back. Our 18 month old loved the sheep & chickens & birds & plums!

Hafren forest is a good shout & so is the Mirchi!

Jess John & Thea.

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

Hafren 20th August 2018

We have had a lovely stay in your beautiful cottage. It was perfect for the three of us while we explored the area. We enjoyed seeing the chickens passing the window… and the gift of fresh eggs! Thank you .

Hafren 29th May 2018

What a fab little cottage! It made a brilliant base for us as we visited the Eisteddfod in Builth Wells. We had a lovely welcome from our hsots, and the kids especially liked going to see the chickens and roaming around the garden. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting outside with a glass of wine in the sun watching whilst our children played.

The cottage has everything we needed, and more! We will definitely be back! <3 🙂

Lots of love,

Siân, Nigel, Seren, Cai.

We have had a most enjoyable week exploring the area of the Wye Valley, having been to see the Red Kites, Devil’s Bridge and the nearby railway. The weather has been most kind to us and we can’t believe it is very close to the end of our week.
