Reviewed 17 July 2017

As a group of Motorcyclists we often try to find a base in Wales to tour from. We found this place about 5 years ago( it has since changed hands) It has always been a magnificent place to stay, and standards have remained the same throughout our visits. The owner/manager is friendly accommodating nothing is too much trouble. The accommodation is first class. Breakfast items are provided by prior arrangement as this is self catering. There is a local Pub about a mile away, but the best food and drink is guaranteed by a trip into Newtown if you do not want to self cater. Most important to use is there is sheltered parking for the bikes. This place is highly recommended for bikers and we will be going back again and again. Only downside for some might be that the mobile signal is almost non existent

My family of six stayed here recently for a long weekend to attend a wedding in a nearby country house. It was wonderful. It is about 5 minutes drive from the nearby town of Newtown but you will need your sat navigation to get there! The cottages(3/4)are set in the grounds of a large house behind automatic gates. Very posh! And safe. Cottages are all modernised and ours had a very large open plan lounge kitchen and dining room which occupied the whole of the downstairs. On entry there is a separate downstairs toilet.Plenty of room for entertaining. There is sat tv. All cooking and dining facilities. Ironing board and iron. In fact all you need to live comfortably. There is no phone signal but complementary wifi which is slow but just about ok. Nice leather sofas to relax on. Upstairs three bedrooms. One ensuite. Beds vet comfortable. Shower strong . Other two rooms share toilet and bathroom facilities. Two of the rooms have views over a small lake with fountain. Everything was functional and all very clean and tidy.Gorgeous place to stay. Highly recommended.
On arrival you are provided with milk tea and coffee , washing up liquid, limited soap and toilet paper. This will last a day or so so you will need to buy in your own supplies.
Parking is good and safe in the grounds.
All in all excellent.

We had a family get together. It was very roomy with a nice lay out and plenty of parking. The owners were very helpful when we reported a problem with the light bulbs.
The only problem we had was there was no where to put wet boots and coats. There was coat hooks in the loo, but we no longer live in the dark ages if you know what I mean.
