Myself and my two brothers booked this fabulous holiday cottage as a 50th birthday surprise for our mum. We were taken in straight away by the pictures and no other place we looked at could even begin to measure up. From the stunning spacious house to the fun filled swimming pool, everything was perfect. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would return and recommend to others!

Lovely clean, well equipped and spacious accommodation with spectacular views, toasty swimming pool which entertained the kids several times a day and hot tub. Stuart's hospitality and musical soirée was exceptional and we are still astounded at the breadth of his talent from Chopin to One Direction & Frozen! We would highly recommend the old rectory for a break with friends or family.

It sounds like you had bags of fun at the Old Rectory Cottage - we are certainly glad to hear it! We would agree that having comfortable accommodation, along with plenty to keep the kids entertained is a great combination in holiday accommodation! We hope that you book with us again soon, it would be great to see you all again!

We booked the Old Rectory Cottage for a family get together and had great expectations from the photographs on the website. Oh Boy we were not disappointed as the reality far exceeded our expectations.

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the owner Stuart we were made to feel very welcome. Stuart showed us round the house and the pool area and showed us how to use the hot tub. The house is finished to a very high standard and is very comfortable and homely. The kitchens are very well equipped and you really want for nothing. The living area is on the first floor taking advantage of the stunning views across the valley

We didn't have to contact Stuart for anything at all during our stay- the holiday ran so smoothly. The beds were very comfortable and there was always an abundant supply of hot water. The pool and hot tub got plenty of use during our stay.

We were lucky enough to meet both Stuart's Mum and Dad during our stay and what lovely friendly people they all were. We were also lucky enough to be treated to a concert with Stuart playing the piano on Thursday evening. What a star! he even allowed our nephew who is learning to play the piano to do a duet with him. He was delighted. All in all this was the best holiday accomodation we have ever had in this country and we would recommend it to everyone of all age groups. The property is only 4 miles from Newtown where you can do your shopping at Tescos, Morrisons or Lidl and there are also plenty of Take Aways to take advantage of. Stuart you have a little gem there !!

This is without doubt the most amazing holiday we have had, Stewart is second to none when it comes to hospitality
The pool, hot tub, accommodation and views are all you need at this location for a great holiday.
The property is immaculate and there was ample space for all 14 of us.
The impromptu musical evening was an added bonus! Thank you very much Stewart.

We have just come back from a weekend at the stunning Old Rectory Cottage and it was perfect!!
Stuart has all bases covered, a large swimming pool for the kids to play in, a luxurious hot tub to relax in, plenty of space for everyone to be together and enough room for those that want some quiet time.
There were 14 of us at the cottage and it had everything we could need and more...
Surrounded by stunning views and amazing scenery it's a little piece of Welsh heaven!
Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

“Beautiful location, top notch accommodation !”
Reviewed March 9, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We hired the Old Rectory Cottage for a 50th birthday weekend, so that 14 friends & family members could have a celebratory gathering. It didn't disappoint ! Great, easy to get to location with beautiful views and surroundings. The house has all the amenities you need. The attention to detail and finish is 1st class. They have thought of everything. Information is available on everything you need and a very professional approach has been taken to the set up of this property. We were greeted by the owner on arrival and made to feel very welcome. I believe that there is still some landscaping being done but this did not impact on the quality of this accommodation. We loved staying there and can't wait to return.. Definitely recommend;it's fabulous and with the hot tub and pool at your disposal even if the weather isn't perfect ( which we were lucky with) you'd be hard pressed not to have a great stay. Thanks Stuart and the Rectory team- a great weekend !
