“Fantastic Weekend”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We arrived on the Friday for the bank holiday weekend and were greeted with a warm welcome, a lit fire and homemade cakes with also a tour around the cottage.

The cottage is on a working farm and the views are spectacular. We have enjoyed playing games in the conservatory looking out onto the Welsh landscape with neighbours of sheep and lambs (which greeted us daily) and evenings spent in the lounge around the open fire.

Whilst at the cottage we went on a number of walks as we brought our dog. We recommend to walk to Lake Vrynwy, it's not too far and when you get there the views are incredible! Also on the Saturday night we went to the Plough in Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochnant which was amazing food and atmosphere!

This cottage is excellent value for money and we will definitely return!

Thank you

“Home from home”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Secret Hideaway. The location is stunning - there are walks in every direction or you can just sit in the conservatory and enjoy the views (particularly the beautiful sunsets). The cottage itself is traditional, cosy and homely and for chilly evenings there is a log burner (also WiFi that works which is good for older children!). The lake and the surrounding area never get too busy and cycling round the lake is easy and enjoyable with lots of spots to paddle along the way. Loads of birds to spot around the hides, including peregrine falcons. The owners (who live next door)could not have been more welcoming - providing lovely home-made cakes on arrival and offering helpful advice. We were joined for a few days by my elderly mother and father in law and we were particularly grateful to Diane for the great care shown to them - extra cakes and fresh flowers arrived and the heating was turned up without us even asking. We were also visited by other members of the family for the day and again, this did not cause any issue. This is a place that anyone who loves the countryside would enjoy at any age. Thank you for making our holiday so special and memorable.

“Not for families”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015
people found this review helpful

Me my husband and our three children along with our dog visited the cottage with visions of total relaxation amongst a secluded valley close to all local amenities.

The holiday started with a note from owners saying what time they will be back to allow us in! Not ideal with 3 children to occupy... We were then told we could not flush the toilet have a shower or wash up as the well had leaked.
The property is connected to the owners house and you can Hear EVERYTHING which makes is very uncomfortable.
In the description it says you are 5 mins away from shop! Yes if you travel in a car but not by foot with three children as no pavements and located on a very sharp bend.
If you have children you can not walk to the Lake as it is along windy roads with no pavements.
Lamps no working nore kettle or fridge light.
On the morning of departure we were not told before hand of departure time but my husband yet again bumped into the owner and she asked what time are we leaving at 9.40am to which he replied midday, he was then told we had to be out by 10am!!!! 20 mins to get family of 5 belongings out.

“View from cottage is 5 star”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013
people found this review helpful

The cottage itself is adequate but would hugely benefit from an upgrade - decor, lighting in kitchen for instance. However we managed to cook Christmas dinner here with the help of Sainsburys oven ready items. View from conservatory is lovely and some good dog walks around.
