We have just returned from a wonderful week staying at Kestrel Cottage at Beacon Hill. The cottage was really spaceous, very well equipped and very warm, the latter being particularly important given we were there for the exceptionally cold weather we have had recently (-15C and 3 ft of snow!). The heavy snow and terrible driving conditions made leaving Beacon Hill difficult but I can't think of a better place to be snowed in. The pool / spa / gym is wonderful, the kids loved the pool and it was a real novelty to be relaxing on the deck chairs in swimwear looking out at the snowy blizzards! The owner, Alun, was very welcoming and helpful, even going out food shopping for guests who didn't want to tackle the snowy roads. We'd love to return!
