I booked this for my family for my husbands birthday and I'm glad I chose this place. We stayed in the lodge and it is lovely. Plenty of room, clean, comfortable beds and an amazing hot tub and log burner. The kids enjoyed seeing the animals and playing in the surrounding grounds. The owner is very helpful and accommodating, even... More

Once again we had a wonderful stay at The Forest. This was our third stay, second in the B&B as once we stayed in one of the excellent cottages. Sometimes I find if you've enjoyed somewhere before you arrive with very high expectations and are disappointed, this couldn't be further from the truth. We arrived on a cold and dark... More

We stayed there 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised. Great location, lovely room, tasty breakfast and friendly owners. We will definitely stay again if in the area. Really old house , renovated with the personal touch.

Nice location: a beautiful property without busy roads or noise. A warm welcome: the owners are really friendly and helpful but respect your privacy. Room and b&b: spacious, cosy and clean in a historical setting. Breakfast: we had the cooked breakfast every day which was a real treat (something for everyone). A favorite for future stays in Wales. Greetings from... More

Sadly, this was just an overnight stay. My comfortable room overlooked the garden and I had a perfect night's sleep. There are plenty of breakfast choices to set you up for the day ahead. I was just sorry not to be staying longer but hope to return. The Forest is a perfect starting place for exploring Central Wales.

We have just had two lovely nights in this fine B&B. Our hosts were very warm and welcoming as was the room we had. Very good breakfast in the mornings and a good time to chat with other guests. Would highly recommend.

The 3 of us arrived on Friday 15th August 2014, and after 7 nights with much regret had to leave this relaxing location. The welcome from Michelle was warm as she showed me around the property and explained the refuse regime. The hot tub at the property had lots of use, as did the games room, my son learning to...
