Everything is 'ticketyboo'! Paddy and Sue clearly have a passion for providing an excellent B&B with fantastic food, and a lovely feel generally. Nothing is too much trouble. It's like a first class hotel but with the personal touch. Why is this #4 in Mach??? Surely it's the best place to stay in the area, certainly at the price. A... More

What a great feeling - to feel as if you are back home, that's what it felt like to return to The Old Coach House again this summer for a week. Once again Sue left little delicacies for us to nibble on and Paddy was on hand to answer our numerous queries. The chickens have increased in number as have... More

I stayed overnight on 30th August, on my way between various narrow gauge railways, during a very rare weekend away without the family. Paddy and Sue were perfect hosts, from the friendly email acknowledging my booking to the personalised note with my bill. My room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast (watching the birds on the feeders) was... More

We have stayed with Paddy and Sue a number of times since September 2008, and thoroughly enjoyed each stay. They combine great ideas and a warm welcome with an attention to detail that is rare to find. We have stayed several times in the self-catering Coachman's quarters, and also used the Bed and Breakfast rooms. We love ordering dinner in... More

My wife and I arranged to stay four nights at the Old Coach House after careful internet research. Our stay fulfilled all the positive reviews, and then some. Paddy and Sue welcomed us to their green living space nestled in the very green hills of mid Wales. We took their recommendation to reserve both of their en-suite rooms for ourselves... More

Beautiful setting, excellent accommodation, friendly welcome. Sue and Paddy are excellent hosts, couldn't do enough to help make our stay enjoyable. Beautiful house and garden, no TV in bedroom, but available in resident's lounge. Would definitely stay here again.
