"A Gem of a Holiday Cottage"
We read very positive reviews about the cottage before we booked but the cottage and the location far exceeded our hopes and expectations. The Cottage has been refurbished to an extremely high standard and the before and after pictures inside the cottage made an interesting read. Martin and Emma have refitted the cottage to an extremely high standard. The view from the cottage is absolutely breathtaking and we were visited daily by swifts and red kites. The location is perfect for exploring the local sights and Devils Falls Bridge is only a 5 minute drive away. We also visited places further afield including Portmeirion and Snowdonia National Park. The welcome pack in the cottage which included tea and Welsh cakes was very welcoming after our long trip up from West Sussex. This was my first visit to Wales and if you are looking for a great cottage in the heart of mid Wales then this is the place for you. We shall definitely be back and have fallen in love with the beautiful countryside, Thank you Martin and Emma for making our stay perfect.
We really appreciate all feedback, very happy you enjoyed your stay in Rheidol and hope to see you again in the future. Thank you/Diolch.

"Best of both worlds"
Rheidol cottage is set in beautiful surroundings with views over the hills and had the weather been better we would have had every meal outside to make the most of it. It worked well for us (a family of 4 - children aged 6 and 7) as the holiday combined the countryside, local attractions and walking opportunities along with delightful accommodation which is new, well presented and very high spec. Better WIFI than we have at home and a smart TV!
There are several attractions and walks close by without the need to spend ages in the car. I would advise a supermarket delivery shortly after you arrive as although there is a garage with shop at the bottom of the hill the nearest big grocery shop is Aberystwyth. I would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay if you like doing stuff outdoors.
Thank you for spending the time to review us, we're extremely pleased you enjoyed your stay and your holiday in Mid Wales, the views really are special. Thanks/Diolch

"Easily the best self-catering accommodation we have ever been in"
This property has it all, with a real wow factor. With clear instruction from the owner we easily found the cottage. Fantastic views, and only a few sheep for neighbours. We did see someone walking a … More
Thank you so much for leaving such a positive review, we renovated the cottages with the thought of what we would expect from a holiday cottage. We hope adding some extra small touches will make it that little bit special for guests. It gives us great satisfaction others are enjoying staying as much as we do and will never get tired of waking up with such a beautiful view. Hope to see you again in the future. Kind Regards Martin & Emma

"Perfectly suited for those who want to discover the area"
We had a lovely stay in Ponterwyd. The cottage is fully equiped for a 4 to 6 people, and very comfortable, as it can allow for everyone to have their own space (kitchen far enough from the bedrooms th… More
