Having read one of the reviews on here I was a bit worried as we had already booked 'Tawny Owl' for a week - however we found it to be perfect! We were aware this was a working woodland so expected some disruption - but during the whole week we actually saw one land rover go past! Apart from that (and two people on mountain bikes) we didn't see another soul – it was perfect isolation and peace.
There is no TV reception - a real blessing we didn’t miss it at all. The children actually played outside and made camps in the woods, we walked miles, the area is outstandingly beautiful. The mountain roads compare with the lake district – but with no people!! We drove the Devils Staircase and took the mountain road to Aberystwyth – highly recommended.
I already miss my morning coffee outside, overlooking the forest and the mountains from the cottage in perfect isolation with only the birds for company. If you want to get away from it all and find some peace and solitude – this is the place to be.
The cottage itself is well equipped, clean and comfortable. If there was a down side it would be the midges – take insect repellent!
This is a fantastic base for exploring Mid Wales – I had no idea the area was so beautiful – a well kept secret. See photo’s attached
