We enjoyed a perfect family weekend here. The cottage was incredibly well equipped with everything we needed. Also full of character, beautifully presented and clearly cherished. As soon as we arrived, we shot off to nearby Nant yr Arian with our mountain bikes. The next day was spent walking from the cottage, relaxing in the garden room, cooking and watching one of the many films available in the cottage. The location is quite remote so we took all our food with us, though there was a shop a short drive away. Stunning scenery in the area, even when it rains. We spent the day in the Elan Valley after our departure.

Just home from the most magical week at Ty Mari. The accommodation is perfect in every way and the owner has clearly made every effort to make guests as comfortable as possible. Every detail has been thought of and the place feels like a home from home the moment you walk in. We booked a return visit within a day of arriving. Thanks Gareth for a fantastic stay. We are so glad to have found this little gem in the middle of the most stunning part of Wales.

We knew what to expect with the location (which is beautiful) but Ty Mari exceeded our expectations.  Really one of the best cottages we have stayed in.  Very well equipped, clean and cosy.  Many thanks.

Ty Mari is wonderful with beautiful surroundings.  The whole time we were there we felt relaxed and settled in the cottage and the beautiful surroundings.  Seeing the moon and stars in the clear night sky finished the holiday off perfectly.

Thank you to Gareth for an amazing stay.  The place is in an amazing spot and the views are incredible.  Gareth has thought of everything regarding your stay including detailed laminated walking maps etc. Sad to leave as we had such a lovely time.  Thanks.

“Penroc made a very cosy, comfortable and peaceful base for a few days of walking in the Elan Valley. The bed is lovely and firm, the dark sky views from the balcony are amazing, and the cottage is very well equipped if you like to self cater. I spent every evening looking at the stars from the window seat, and will miss that.”

Once again an amazing stay at Penroc.  A perfect getaway for anyone.  Everything you could want and need.  And this was an extra special trip due to snow being there our whole trip.  Will be back again!

We couldn’t have picked a better place, so beautiful and peaceful.  The view from Penroc is amazing and the stars at night are breathtaking.  Our dog loved the walks and Devil’s Bridge Falls was so pretty.  We will most definitely come again…Love it!

We had a lovely New Year with family in both cottages.  This is a really nice place.  We had some amazing walks and find Welsh Hideaways a perfect place for relaxing.
