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.

A warm welcome, a beautiful and well equipped cottage with fantastic views! 🙂

Lovely area, enjoyed the trip to Aberystwyth and a ride on the Vale of Rheidol steam railway.

Lynne + Lewis.

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!

Dave + Andrea + Macey.

We have enjoyed our stay here, with helpful, welcoming hosts and comfortable accommodation. We have found the local area delightful, especially the charming town of Llanidloes and the beautiful countryside.

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.

Severn 10th June 2017

Had an excellent week’s holiday, in spite of the weather. Grace and Adrian very welcoming and helpful. Powis Castle, Gilfach farm nature reserve and the Red Kites are all a “must”.

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

What a wonderful cottage in a perfect location, had a lovely stay, Elan Valley beautiful. Hosts very welcoming, tea / coffee & biscuits very welcome.

Debbie & Mark & Cassie.

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.

Paul, Martina & Chin

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.
