Incredible property in an incredible location. Only challenge is the steep walk down to the huts. This would be a real struggle for very elderly or anyone struggling with heart or lung issues. Apart from that - fantastic.

Rebecca, 15th April 2019

Fantastic property -amazing location... best Easter break ever, we all loved it - & lovely to have a device detox & get back to basics with board games, cooking on open fires and stream walking. Kids loved the wooden hot tub- worth paying the extra for. Kitchen & shower room well equipped and warm so perfect if like me camping is a step too far.. ORead morenly 15 mins drive to beautiful Hay on Wye with great pubs Advice - pack light as steep walk back up to car park from the huts. Hide
