Myself and my partner got a great deal of eBay for this! Jackie was a really nice lady and went out of her way to help us... Especially when we ran out of lemonade for our pimms! The place is excellen… More

We had a wonderful family break in two adjoining cabins. The log cabins are very comfortable, spacious and have fantastic views. Jackie and her colleagues were extremely friendly and helpful and my grandson thoroughly enjoyed brushing and leading Edward the miniature Shetland pony.

"A perfect weekend"
We hired three cabins, for a total of six adults and six children. It was a weekend break celebrating my 40th birthday. The cabins were lovely, very cosy and big enough for us all to spend the evening… More

"Excellent accomodation in a lovely setting."
With ages ranging from 5 to 70 success was far from guaranteed. However the stunning setting and the close proximity of the friendly horses impressed everyone, even the four teenagers. In fact the pony trekking was the highlight of most people's stay.
The tranquillity and lovely view made many of us reluctant to leave the site. Nevertheless we managed a visit to Portmeirion, white water rafting at Llangollen, a climb to the top of Snowden and much more.
Evenings were spent cooking on the barbeque and in the kitchens, then gathered on the veranda of the middle cabin to discuss the day's activities. I have rarely heard so much laughter and conviviality.
The cabins were exactly as described, comfortable and well equipped.
A very memorable holiday that I am sure we will all talk about for a long time .
The highest praise I can give is that everyone wants to come back.
so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay with us

"Home away from home."
The wooden cabins are really really nice and i was pleasantly suprised, with the interior size. The location is well out the way from everything and very secluded. Once we arrived and unloaded the cars the cabins were just a short walk from the car park.
Once we were bedded in we shut the paddock gate the place was ours. We let the dogs out of the balcony doors and the kids followed and just played for hours in a safe, clean and happy environment.
We booked the 3 cabins over the new year period and this was a brilliant change of pace to bring the new year in.
There was no wifi and the telephone reception was very poor.

"Fresh air, plenty of space, stunning views and comfortable cabins"
14 of us hired out all 3 cabins. We had a great time messing about on the ample lawns surrounding the cabins, the children even running their own mini olympics! Pony riding was very enjpyable for those who wanted (steady mounts all round, well supervised), as was the match on telly seen from the leather sofas for others! 2 Big BBQ's provided were appreciated. Jackie and Gavin were supportive but not intrusive. We'll be back again (again).

My friends and I rented out all three cabins for my 30th birthday weekend. The location is beautiful and the cabins were lovely too.
We all agreed that we would return for another weekend in the future.
The host was excellent and there wasn't one fault that anyone could find. Best birthday ever!!
thank you we are so glad you enjoyed your birthday it was great to have you staying and thank you to you and your group for respecting the cabins and leaving them so clean and tidy
come back soon

"A clean and comfortable getaway in an idyllic setting."
These log cabins are actually really chalets. Well appointed, and very clean, with comforable beds, large living/dining area, and a reasonably-sized kitchen. The chalets are hooked up to gas, which feeds both the cooker and the central heating.
Despite all these excellent points, the best bit about the cabins is their location. Overlooking a wide valley, covered in a patchwork of fields, with the Stiperstones on the far horizon, it's about as peaceful as you could ever wish for. There's a fair amount of space around the cabins, perfect for children to run around in, or to kick a ball, or throw a frisbee - you get the idea!
There are three chalets, which all have a double bedroom. The second bedroom has bunkbeds and a single in two of the chalets, and two singles in the third. So if all cabins are available you can sleep 14. We had a party of 11 across the three cabins, and we managed to cater for ourselves no problems whatsoever.
The only potential downside is the remoteness - the nearest shop is a 5-10min drive away - and it's also a bit tricky to find if you're not used to navigating country lanes! However, if you are, and if you can make your own entertainment, you'll love it here.
it was great to have your group staying
come back soon
