Back once more to our favourite retreat Having never stayed at Severn before (we have stayed at all other 3 cottages) we now have decided this is the cottage for us! It is simply wonderful!
Found Aber’s best kept secret on this stay – the back yard barbecue – fabulous food in a quirky quaint setting. We also recommend the curry house in Rhayader – bhajis built like cricket balls!
As always we will return home with our objective achieved – fully recharged, blisfully rested and probably half a stone heavier than when we arrived due to fabulous local fare!
Great hosts. Great food. Great time.
– it doesn’t get better than this –
Glen & Siobhan
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
Thank you for a wonderful stay in your lovely cottage. We’ve all had a fabulous time & don’t want to leave! We hope you’ll have us again 🙂
Rob, Michelle, Isabel, Feebie & Pebbles
Lovely warm cosy cottage. Spotlessly clean, perfect for our stay.
We have already passed details on to friends regarding this cottage. We would most definitely return. Big thank you for the warm welcome.
David, Taryn & Tilly
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.
A very relaxing 2 night stay with our 5 year old daughter. Grace could not have been more helpful and friendly. Would love to come back.
Gemma & Michael
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
We had a lovely stay at the cottage. Weather was good except for a few wet days, but meant we could venture out and explore Wales.
Location good (shame about the road). Great views.
Hosts were fantastic. Thanks for the eggs! Yummy!
Shame the 2 weeks went so fast.
Martin & Sabrina.
Everything perfect – enough said.
Jackie & Michael + Bruce
Had a lovely day sat in the sun. Wales is doing us well.
Matt, Matt, Lydia & Jess
Thoroughly enjoyed both the cottage and the week in general. The bird-life was better than anticipated, the Elan Valley’s in particular. Thanks for the welcome & supplies.
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.
A lovely week in the most beautiful of Welsh countryside in a charming & perfect little cottage with great hosts. We will be back!
Vanessa & Richard & Saphie the Springer.
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
Place was perfect, extremely comfortable. We loved it, the kids loved it. TV hasn’t been on once and the kids even taught themselves how to play chess! Lovely views and local area, very peaceful & we will return!
Gavin, Lisa, Mylo, Kira.
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
Best self catering we have stayed in. Facilities and welcome by great hosts in Grace and Adrian with lots of information about the area.
Lovely location and views from the windows.
Hosts and facilities could not be improved.
See you again later in the year.
Mike & Debbie + “Peanut”
PS Peanut says thanks for the yummy treats.
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 lovely stay in your cottage. Everything you could ask for was provided including the free eggs!
Kevin, Emma, Ethan, Saffron.
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.
Very pleasant location & ideal for walking and beautiful area. We were “snowed in” on day 1, but very impressed our hosts dug us out. Delightful welcome pack & everything you need for a comfortable stay.Local pub very good food & dog friendly.
Steve & Sue + “Millie”
Lovely spot you have here on the edge of the Elan Valley – often an area we have passed thorough on the South to North journeys. We are glad we did indeed make a point to spend a couple of nights here.
A welcome break from Cardiff and we hope to come back to the area again. We will certainly recommend your cottages here.
Claerwen Dam was a particular favourite – amazing views from the top. Can recommend gentle slopes and path around Craig Goch dam for a more “leisurely walk / hike.”
All the best for 2018,
Emelyne & Guy.
Lovely cottage with everything you could need. Lovely owners fantastic area. Will definitely return.
Jason & Leau.
Once again we return as “frequent flyers”. Another fabulous stay, wonderful snow & scenery you just can’t beat! Inner & outer peace now fully regained – just a shame we couldn’t get snowed in and not have to go home! …we shall return again later in the year.
(P.S. can we have the whistling kettle again – even if you just have that & the choice of the ‘leccy one! We love the old-school traditional whistle of “tea’s ready!”)
Glen & Siobhan.
The cottage was great and exceeded our expectations. Adrian & Grace are warm and friendly hosts & we will definitely be visiting here again with the family!
Tim & Tammy.
Stayed 4 times at cottages (work) sometimes very short notice, made very welcome. Excellent accommodation & helpful hosts.
An amazing stay with lovely host. Very helpful and warming. Everything you could need is here and very helpful welcome pack.
Thank you, XXX.
Ollie, Libby, Amy & Laurence.
We had a lively New Years stay at Wye View. The cottage was perfectly equipped and is the ideal size for the two of us. Elan Valley was a recommendation from Adrian on arrival and it’s a must visit, beautiful scenery & a lovely walk / drive.
Grace & Adrian couldn’t have been more helpful & we’ve loved every minute.
Thank you XX
James & Emily.

We’ve had an amazing stay here, the cottage is lovely and the views even more so! We had everything we needed. The owners were absolutely amazing and very friendly. We had a little problem with the WiFi, but other than that it was a great holiday for my birthday!
We had such a lovely time in this lovely cottage, and we will let our family and friends know that it is a great place to come if you want to relax and recharge your batteries. Thank you.

Lovely quaint cottage, with beautiful views. We did some great walks with our dog, and had a well needed rest. The weather was good too, so it was a lovely 3 days.

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
We had a lovely time here and will definitely be coming back.

Love from us all XXX.
Andy, Lisa, Ellie (5) & Will (2).
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.
Grat views. Warm & friendly owners.
Enjoyable walks behind the cottage and from the village tea shop. Would recommend the circular walk around the hills seen in the view from the terrace. Devils Bridge + Aberystwyth. Also the nature trail @ Llyn Clywedog well worth a visit.
Jean & John + Freddie (dog).
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.
A lovely cottage and a perfect location. Enjoyed every minute. Elan Valley, beautiful walk. Will be back next year.
Thanks to Adrian + Grace wonderful hosts.

Absolutely gorgeous cottage & wonderful hosts. We had a really lovely weekend, it was everything we needed. Would 100% come back! Love the peace & quiet & how clean it was too! Thank you so much! XXX
Maja & John.
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).
Very comfortable, clean, well-equipped cottage. Beautiful views, great location. Thanks for your hospitality.

As always a fabulous stay – peace and quiet beautiful surroundings – arrived to bara brith – first step tea and cake!
Adrian & Grace have got this rural idyl just perfect – we will be back again (as usual) later in the year & quite possibly once again without the kids!
The perfect place to recharge your batteries.
Glen & Siobhan.

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.
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.

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.
We look forward to further visits in the future.
Toby and Teresa.
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.
Lovely warm welcome, plenty of advice and info too. Lovely, cosy cottage & really enjoyed our stay along with our dog Max, thank you so much. XX.
Paula & Kevin
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.
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”.
Sue & Mike.
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.
Sandra & Steve.
A couple of comments from our younger guests:
An amazing stay, nice and quiet, lovely and a wonderful sleep! I recommend it! I would want to come again (definitely). Thank you for our stay! Very nice. <3 (Chloe)
Thank you for the lovely stay, it has been nice here. It is beautiful. I have liked when I seen the chicken and sheep come past. Thank you. xxx (Sophie)
Lucy, John, Chloe & Sophie.
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.
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
Lovely cottage, comfortable very welcoming. Suggest trimming the last two conifers next to Elan, but loved watching the wildlife. Would definitely come come back. Had a great time.
Simon & Mandy.
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.
Very impressed. Lovely cosy cottage. Great location with amazing views. Would certainly come back again.
Paul, Sarah, George & Molly.
Lovely cottage and nice location. Despite some snow one morning, plenty of walking & site seeing & managed a flight at Shobdon Aerodrome. Would like to return again.
Thank you for a great week.

Had a lovely time. Shame it couldn’t be longer.

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.
Andrew, Louise, Mirabel & Abi.
A very cosy cottage we were made very welcome, everything you need was in cottage. Lovely location and easy to find. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you very much.
