A beautiful cottage in the heart of the country. We so enjoyed our stay. Excellent communication from the host, Gareth.

V & G and family from Cardiff: August 2020

We had an absolutely amazing time.  We just loved Penroc and look forward to going back in a few years time.  We will miss the balcony with the amazing view.  No other holiday home has beaten that view along with all that Penroc offers.  You really do have a special place in Wales and we miss it already!

C & OS from Evesham: Aug 2020

*****   We had a brilliant stay with lots to explore; we really enjoyed the Hafod Forest treks, which are close enough to get to on foot.  It was amazing to be able to listen to the river waterfalls from your bed in the morning.  Equally beautiful views in sunny or rainy weather.  The place is cosy in feel and warmth with heated floor.  Everything was clean, TV, books, games; everything to entertain in the evenings provided.

“Ty Mari is a super cottage in pretty location! Wonderful host and the cottage has everything you could possibly need. A home from home. We look forward to booking again in the near future and make the most of its fabulous location for walks. Thank you.”

***** Love the place, love the location. I have already recommended Welsh Hideaways to friends and family.  Thank you and hope to visit again.

RR from Liverpool: July 2020

***** Penroc is a study in hosting excellence.  Thoughtfulness, attention to detail and quality are lavished on this cosy mountain sanctuary.  We booked in haste and were delighted at our leisure.  A rare treat.

Booked for a 4 day lads walking and cycling break before the Corona lock down. It was just perfect. Cottage was stocked with everything we needed to feel right at home. It was warm, beds were comfortable (One of my mates is the size of a giraffe and even fit in the bed), clean and the out side area had great views. Internet speed was terrific and TV full of entertainment. The area is amazing with breathtaking views and wonderful wildlife. I will be returning with the family ASAP so they can enjoy this amazing area.

Our stay in Penroc couldn’t have been more perfect!  The location and the views are out of this world – and the cottage has all you need for a stay that’s like a home away from home.  The view from the living room and the balcony was spectacular and this coupled with being so close to the stunning mountain road, Hafod Estate and the Elan Valley (all of which are a must visit) made our stay one of the best we have had in Mid Wales.  Our dogs loved the stay too and especially the trip to Ynyslas beach, which is definitely worth a visit.  Alan, the caretaker, and Gareth the manager, were both incredibly helpful and responsive – perfect hosts.  Thank you and we’ll be back for sure!!

HA from West Sussex: February 2020

We stayed in Penroc for three nights with our two daughters and little dog and had a really lovely time.  The cottage is so welcoming and has everything we needed to make our stay a home from home.  We loved sitting and watching the birds and the beautiful landscape. 

CH from Stafford: February 2020

First visit here and loved every minute of our stay in Penroc. Wished we had booked a full week.  The cottage is really nice and very warm. The underfloor heating is nice on your feet.  Loved our long walks round the Hafod estate and got away with really bad weather.  Went to Aberystwyth one afternoon and there’s loads to do.  Would definitely recommend it.  See you very soon!
