“What a lovely place to spend a birthday weekend”
Reviewed November 16, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Simply beautiful picturesque quaint little cottage in a rural part of Wales. On arrival we were greeted with fresh home made scones, bread, jam and a bottle of red wine. Great start. The cottage itself is simply beautiful and was an ideal place for us to spend a quiet weekend birthday break with 4 dogs. You have everything you need. Both bedrooms had an en suite which was a nice touch. The River Wye is a short walk away for a nice relaxing walk however a short drive away is the Elan Valley. Amazing walks and scenery.
The only downside we found was the cooker which we found a little difficult to use, however this should not put you off. We would definitely return here again.

Yes, the cooker is very high spec for a holiday cottage!
The instructions are always to hand and Graham is available for lessons,
Touch control is very easy once you know what to do. Most new appliances are like this now.
Glad you enjoyed your stay with the dogs and hope to see you again in the future.

“Perfect”
Reviewed November 10, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Just returned from a relaxing three night break with my husband, another couple and four doggies.

The cottage is located a stones throw from the Wye river on the edge of the village and adjoins the owners home. First impressions were excellent, space for two cars and a large garden for our fur babies. Inside, things got better and better.

We were met by the lovely owner Diane, a welcome pack of home made scones, jam, cream and fresh bread and treats for the dogs. The cottage was warm and cosy and had everything we could have needed. Diane and Graham had also remembered it was one of our birthdays and had very kindly left a card.. So thoughtful.

Upstairs both bedrooms were furnished to a high standard, we all slept like babies.

The cottage and surroundings are lovely but what really sets this place apart from any other self catering accommodation we've stayed in is the personal touches. The owners have thought of everything and go out of their way to make you welcome. It's also really rare to find somewhere of such a high standard that will take this amount of dogs.

Thank you for such a memorable stay, we've returned home with great memories and four very happy, tired doggies :-)

“clean, confortable and well-equipped house”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a lovely stay in Orchard house. It is so cosy and clean and has everything needed to make your stay perfect. The beds are comfortable which is important to us. The house has a beautiful garden and is ideally situated near the river. You can make some great walks with your dog.
The welcome pack including homemade scones, fresh clotted cream and wine was a lovely touch.
