“BEST B&B & Cottage in Wales”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

This a four star welsh Tourist Board rated establishment and deserves every star and more. The house and accommodation is excellent.
The attached two bedroom cottage is wonderful.
The location is out of this world and ideally placed for many outdoor activities and attractions in Wales.
Sue and Chris are a wonderful couple and can't do enough to help. Furthermore Cris is a fishing expert and gives excellent advice and help.
Go to theit website for full details.

Sue and Chris were most hospitable, providing everything we could want including a superb breakfast each morning. There is a nice atmosphere in the house with freedom to come and go according to one's schedule. The bed was really comfortable and the house is in a beautiful quiet valley, well situated for touring or walking.

This is my second visit to Kilsby and we were welcomed back as old friends. It doesn't feel like staying in a hotel, Sue at Chris make us feel very "at home". Set in a quiet, stunning Welsh valley, it is pure escapism and provided a welcome respite from our hectic lifestyle! We were so impressed by our first stay that we booked an extra night this year and we will definitely be going back again in 2013. You will receive a warm welcome and the Kilsby breakfast will set you up for the day

A return visit to the beautiful setting that Kilsby House occupies and the same warm welcome awaited! Nothing is too much trouble for hosts Sue and Chris as they ensure to make sure you could have everything you could possibly need. The comfortable rooms have everything associated with a larger hotel and with the addition of the tasty Bara Brith which Sue makes and yes, I did have one to take home! I especially appreciated the provision of fluffy robes in the rooms! A fantastic breakfast awaits in the morning and you can avail yourself of the daily fresh baked bread in between courses whilst your selection is cooked to order. I thoroughly recommend Kilsby House and I've booked again for 2013 in advance in case news of this gem spreads too widely!

We fell on Kilsby Country House by sheer luck not realising what an absolute gem we had discovered some years back. We've stayed at the B&B and the cottage, both are excellent and complemented by both Sue and Chris who welcome you into their home. When we say 'home' we really do mean home because every return trip feels like going home to be treated in the best possible way. Beautiful home in a beautiful area where comfort, cleanliness and attention to detail is key. Comfortable beds in lovely rooms, not just your run of the mill tea and coffee making facilities either....fresh milk straight from the fridge and bara brith...mmm delicious. Easily amongst the best anywhere and for gorgeous breakfast....veggie as well....second to none. If you like company then Sue and Chris are the perfect hosts, if you want privacy they remain perfect hosts and work extremely hard to make your stay a 5* experience. Take the chance to savour the area ...it's a haven for peace and quiet with no sound or light pollution. Take binoculars to watch birds and local wildlife and although we're not fishermen the tales that Sue tells us about Chris and his expertise in this field suggests a little piece of fishing heaven is on the map! If you need a break to recharge body and soul we would highly recommend Kilsby...if we had to choose just one word to describe it then we would choose the word 'perfect'.

Excellent accomodation in a stunning setting. Very professional hostess with a lovely disposition. Do not come to these parts for a shopping experience, just relax and take in the sheer beauty of the Welsh countryside.

Kilsby Country House - one night was not enough! My mother (68) and I (40) visited Kilsby B&B for one night in late October 2011. As we found with all of our UK accommodations, it is best to arrive your first night in the light of day. Because of this, we had no trouble finding this lovely cottage nestled in the countryside.

On arrival, Sue greeted us as if we had been long lost friends- the kind that just picks up from where you last left off. Being from Texas, I loved her warm, down-to-earth, chatty nature. We were shown our room upstairs that was large and spacious featuring two beds. Adjacent, a private toilet room and a separate shower room with keys to both allowed for easy, discreet access to facilites. All impeccably clean and no odors. Downstairs, there is a common room for realxing and a breakfast room for dining. We ventured into town for dinner in the evening setting our tripometer on the car and recorded when to take turns headed back... it gets dark here! Our night's sleep was so restful - quiet and dark. Breakfast in the morning was served by Sue. The breakfast itself was more than plentiful and kept us filled until supper that night. After breakfast, we checked-out of Kilsby B&B and headed to Powis Castle.

I would not hesitate to return to Kilsby in the future and spend more time exploring the area on foot. This B&B is setup so you don't feel like you are intruding in someone else's home. In fact, the moment you walk in the doors, you feel a sense of home and a welcoming that makes you feel that you are not so far from your real home.
