“We had a wonderful time. The cottage was perfect for us. Loved the double bedroom which is so light and airy; the kitchen was well-equipped, beds and sofas comfortable.

The gardens are lovely, plenty of flowering shrubs for the bees, loads of birdlife. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

We would definitely recommend and would return.”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rhydgaled Cottage. The owner made us feel very welcome - left us some Bara Brith and a small container of milk which we thought was a lovely touch. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. We would certainly recommend the cottage to any of our friends and family who wanted a break in mid Wales.”

“Lovely welcome from owner; special touch of Barabrith bread and milk in the fridge! Neighbours also very helpful, lots of good advice of places to see and local walks to try, as well as a comprehensive selection of tourist leaflets and booklets in the cottage. Rhydgaled was a wonderful place to stay and we are already saving our pennies to come back again next year. The accommodation is authentic and very comfortable - with high standards of cleanliness in all rooms; which are light and airy, with fabulous views that go on for ever. The layout of the rooms, furnishings and equipment had been carefully thought out and catered for all our needs. It was warm and cosy in the evenings and bright and fresh on warm Spring days. The garden was also beautiful, with secret places for children to hide amongst the shrubs, lazy labradors to stretch their limbs on the lawns and weary adults to take much needed r and r in the secluded patio area with their Pimms. The decor was especially pleasing - simple, but very effective and complimented the rooms, making much of the sunlight flooding in through skylight windows - magical.
As Pop Larkin would say - Just perfick!!”

“Another fantastic stay! Always a very warm welcome. The cottage is situated with easy access across the area and further afield but still sits in a rural relaxing location. Dog friendly with lots of nice walks, you couldn't really ask for more.”

“Because we lucked out with the weather this June, it was doubly important to have Rhydgaled to retreat to -as we knew we would be warm & comfortable there.

The garden room is great for sitting & painting on wet afternoons.”
