Elan Valley mid Wales detached holiday cottage in an elevated position near Rhayader, pet friendly.
The sun shone when we stayed at Spring Hill Cottage, and we ate our breakfast out on the terrace each morning above the clouds in the valley, watching the views across the woods and hills appear as the clouds dissipated and listening to the house martins burbling to each other. The cottage itself has been beautifully renovated, and the kitchen is particularly nicely done. All the necessary equipment is provided, plus a table tennis table in the garage, which we played on every day. There's plenty of walking from the door, and we made a point of bagging all the local dams, including the one that was blown up by Bomber Harris. Look up the Elan Valley Visitor Centre for events - we went to a creative writing workshop and a drawing workshop - and further afield, the Hafod estate offers an excellent dog swimming river.
Fantastic location. Well equipped cottage. Incredible darkness at night.
Excellent location and hope to return again. Only 4 stars as no washing machine and fridge and freezer could be larger but otherwise no complaints. Cosy cottage that kept us cosy while 'beast from the east' blowing during stay.
